Amazon sells everything from streaming video to organic grapes, and it’s all part of a large (likely successful) strategy to dominate the entire consumer market.

*The end of this video includes a paid sponsored promotion. This company had no part in the writing, editing, or production of the rest of the video.

    • @wow this is a really bad channel. it's basically propaganda. u refuse to use the most accurate term for what amazon is: "monopoly". there is no need to argue why monopolies are bad - through experience we have decided that "certain things" and "balances" reach a state that necessitates *laws* forbidding it. amazon, joff bozos, can afford to provide their warehouse workers with humane work pace and job security. that is, workers wouldn't have to walk 15miles a day, under constant onmipresent surveillance, and such fear that they shit their pants. @polymatter just make videos, but each and every video you make, each word you say, reinforces and promotes real harm to real people. it's by proxy, but *you* cause immense pain and suffering to normal everyday people. behind your computer making fluff propaganda videos. please remember, you cause harm to real people everyday.

    • Are you an independent youtuber or an advertiser? In the few videos I've watched here, but in every video, you do a TERRIBLE job distinguishing between content and advertising. Make up your mind and tell us. I did try to visit your "chat" on discord.me, but was only redirected to download the Discord app. I am able to go to other web pages in my browser without being FORCED to download an app. Another advertisement masquerading as an invitation? wtf, polymatter? There seem to be two options here: you suck (at separating content from advertising) or you suck (pretending to be an individual creator whilst you are really just Advertisements). p.s. Your About page, here at KZworld, says the only way to reliably contact you is by the email below. There is no email below.

I wonder what it's like to order people around to their own demise till you're so bloody rich that you have more money than you'll ever spend in your life 🤔

  • Free download Amazon Bestseller Genie Ebook www.mediafire.com/file/kzhcibk0ml6cnc3/Amazon_Bestseller_Genie.pdf/file Introduction to Amazon Bestseller Genie Everyone would like to have a bestselling book, but very few people will ever achieve it. Have you ever wondered why that is? Is it because some people are better writers than others? Possibly. But have you ever wondered why some people who aren’t great writers end up on the bestseller lists while fantastic writers often struggle to sell a handful of copies? The answer, of course, is promotion! Most writers, especially self-published ones, upload their book and just sit back waiting for the magic to happen. Then they wonder why no one is buying their book. Would you expect to start a website and get a ton of traffic without any promotion? Would you expect to start a restaurant and get a ton of diners without any promotion? Then why expect to write a book and sell a ton of copies without any promotion? Promotion is the key to almost every bestseller you can think of. Very few books have taken off without some kind of promotion behind them. In this guide, you’re going to learn about some of the key things you can do to promote your book on Amazon and increase sales. You’ll learn about reviews, mailing lists, social marketing and much more.

  • when apple refused to unlock that iphone it only did it to come off as giving a fuck about your privacy, truth is they dont, it was a false gesture, and it has been rumored that apple did unlock it and kept it hidden from the public entirely as a sort of agreement they had with the government to save face and look good for it. and no apple does not give a shit about its customers, they intentionally use glue instead of screws in some products just to make them disposable instead of repairable, and they have chosen to use batteries in their products they knew beforehand to be dangerous and or faulty. dont even get me started on the slavery they deal

  • Jeff owns more of the internet than you think. He owns part of Google, Airbnb, Twitter, Twitch, business insider, Wall street journal, IMDB, and if you open a retail company, he will buy you (Zappos, Quidsi, Diapers.com). The guy who sold his company to Jeff asked him why he did it, if it was out of necessity or because he wanted to. Jeff answered: "A bit of both", and smiled. The story is online. He's in it for the power IMO. The interesting part is that Amazon still doesn't have a lot of market share of online retail and it's pillars such as AWS etc.. if they undercut prices, they'll grow even more. He saw the internet, the power of data, and did it. If the gov. doesn't do anything, no one will.

  • A lot of the things talked about in this video are interesting. However, Bezos' biggest achievement was training investors to forget about profits. Anyone who has worked for a listed company knows the quarter/annual hell of 'making the numbers', aka exceeding the analysts expectations. Failure to do so caused the share price to tumble without any rational reason; which hurt the employees (declining 401K) and the executives (bonus, and/or career prospects). Bezos had the temerity (or maybe the inside knowledge as a former hedge fund guy) to say: "Screw that - we are too busy - your capital growth will come - just be patient". Amazing...
