20 Marketing Strategies to Challenge Amazon

Despite consumer spending reaching its highest in eight years, 2017 saw major changes in the
retail space. 50 US retailers filed for bankruptcy, and some brick and mortar stores scaled back and
closed locations.

Where did consumers spend their money? It’s safe to say that Amazon had a standout year. Amazon.com took 44% of all U.S. e-commerce sales and 4% of all US retail sales in 2017, reaching 178 billion U.S. dollars in net sales. While many speculate that Amazon has contributed to the demise of traditional retail, it’s important to note that only 8.9% of retail sales last year were made online, and in fact, 91.1% of the $5.7 trillion consumers spent was at brick and mortar retail.
