Amazon.com’s blunder: Its goal to market “every real produc …

On two recent trips to Amazon.com, I was in search of two very different products. One was an inexpensive pair of iPhone earbuds. The other was a body wash. Despite the products themselves having nothing in common, the two searches turned up one troubling connection: Each listing boasted tons of positive reviews — but for completely different products.

Amazon.com’s leave can frighten even more technology business from New …

NEW YORK (AP) — Amazon jilted New York City on Valentine’s Day, scrapping plans to build a massive headquarters campus in Queens amid fierce opposition from politicians angry about nearly $3 billion in tax breaks and the company’s anti-union stance. With millions of jobs and a bustling economy, New York can withstand the blow, but experts say the decision by the e-commerce giant to walk away and take with it 25,000 promised jobs could scare off other companies considering moving to or expanding in the city, which […]

The smart speaker didn’t exist until Amazon introduced the Alexa-powered Echo, another category the company currently tops. One of the more recent areas of interest for Amazon is advertising. The company has long promoted products on its site, but the segment has increasingly come into focus over the past several quarters. […]

Advertising and marketing is the most recent tool in Amazon.com’s quote for globe …

It’s said that if you receive a service for free, you are not the customer but the product. The truism originated in the early 1970s, when the advent of mass-market media led to a proliferation in television advertising. But it’s more relevant than ever today, with social media soaking up so many of the hours we used to spend gawping at the small screen.

Olson expects advertising income to reach $16 billion in 2021 compared […]

There has been so little news of late about Amazon’s search for a second headquarters that some observers have taken to seizing on the slightest whiff of a clue about where the e-commerce giant might decide to locate its coveted $8 billion complex. Take an advertisement the company posted last month seeking candidates for an economic development position in Washington, D.C.
