B2B Buyers are Flocking to Amazon
There’s no running away from it: Amazon Business has become the world’s largest and most influential B2B marketplace. Consider that:
Amazon Business surpassed $35 billion in sales in 2022.
Amazon Business is projected to hit $83 billion in sales by 2025.
Almost 70% of all product searches start on Amazon.
And yet, many B2B firms still ignore Amazon. Why?
In our experience, many B2B firms are afraid of:
Disrupting their own business model.
Creating channel conflict that’s hard to manage.
Being forced to sell their products at a lower price
point or lower margin.
B2B Firms Can Succeed on Amazon
We get it. Amazon is enormous and can be intimidating. And change can be difficult.
But with the right strategy and guidance, we’re certain every B2B manufacturer and distributor can sell more—and at higher profit margins.
Channels are Shifting – are you Acting?
Amazon can provide incremental revenue and brand reach for B2B firms. The marketplace typically plays a different role in the B2B buyer’s purchase journey versus traditional resale channels, particularly when customers know exactly what they want and need items in smaller quantities and quickly.
For Brands and Manufacturers, your product IS your competitive advantage. With a great product, Amazon should be considered just a new distribution channel.
The role of traditional resellers and distributors is changing, and Amazon represents a way for you to capture more profit from customers that are already looking for your product by selling directly on the channel.
