Amazon's Dirty Business Tactics

Claudia Sanchez


Want to increase sales?

  • Give your customers what they want!

How do you know what your customers want?

  • This can be a difficult and expensive process of trial and error!

Well, NOT if you have hungry “guinea pigs willing to pay YOU, while they share all their trade secrets with you!

Meet a $400 million dollar[1] business called Amazon Basics.


In 2016, there were over 100,000 sellers[2] with sales of more than $100,000 selling on Amazon.

Shoppers ordered more than 28 million items from third-party sellers during 2016.[3]

To answer your question: What’s the dirty tactic?

  1. Amazon “invites” you to sell on their marketplace.
  2. You hustle.
  3. You innovate.
  4. You test the market.
  5. You risk your time and money.
  6. Until FINALLY you nail it!
  7. After weeks or months of hard work you finally find the right product at the right price… SUCCESS!
  8. You start making money!
  9. Everything is amazing…

But “someone” has been watching you!


The “owner” of YOUR customers has been collecting ALL your data.

Watching your progress, your growth, your competitors, your margins, your shipping costs, etc.


  1. Amazon will copy your product.
  2. Add their private label “Amazon Basics” to it.
  3. Sell it at an unbeatable price.
  4. Attach FREE Amazon Prime shipping to it.
  5. Position the exposure of their product on their website b better than yours.
  6. In a matter of days, you will be OUT of business!

      Jeff Bezos first named the company as Cadabra, after the magic slogan “Abra-Cadabra”. When he first mentioned this to his lawyer over the phone, his lawyer misheard it as “Cadaver ???” . Bezos knew right then, that the name would not stick.
      Bezos had the customer-centric approach to the business, right from the start. So, he had proposed to change the name to “Relentless Inc”, a way of saying that the company would be relentless in its approach to customer satisfaction. In 1994, the company’s then de-facto CTO was Shel Kaphan. He was not very amused by the proposal. So, Bezos continued to look for options for the company name.
      In the 1990s, the number of websites were finite, and countable by humans. The websites were sorted alphabetically on the “internet directory” of those days. After a bunch of research, Bezos settled on Amazon Inc for two reasons -
      Amazon river has the largest collection of flora and fauna in the world. Amazon Inc will represent the largest collection of retail items on the internet Amazon-dot-com will appear in the first pages of the internet directory, making it easier to attract users and customers. Source

      Amazon's done it to books. And electronics. And clothing. Now it wants to rule the grocery aisles.

      From the company that brought you the option of letting a courier inside your homecomes a new service: package delivery inside your car.
      Amazon is expanding its in-home delivery service called Key to include deliveries to trunks and back seats of cars. The service is available only to Amazon Prime members in 37 cities who have a 2015 or newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac or Volvo with an active OnStar or Volvo On Call account.
      Essentially, these are already connected cars that can be remotely unlocked — in this case for package delivery, which Amazon promises within a four-hour window. The shopper has to confirm that they've parked within range of the delivery location — in a publicly accessible area — and can track the progress through the Amazon Key app.
      Amazon has devoted much effort to figuring out how to stop its packages from being stolen from porches and public spaces, which is costing the company a pretty penny. With in-car service, Amazon can use shoppers' cars as secure mail drop boxes.

      Amazon, which recently started an offer to deliver packages inside people's homes, now offers to deliver inside people's cars.
