How Does One Describe Amazon.com?
Omnipresent? Online giant? How about beautiful? Last month, TBC spent some time delving into the statistics behind online shopping, and what drives women to forgo brick and mortar purchases in favor of a one-click offering. In particular, we asked women all over the country to talk to us about Amazon, and how their beauty spending habits are influenced by the online behemoth (if at all), how often they shop for beauty there and why. Knowing how she buys on Amazon can help you tailor a similar approach to buying on your own brand’s website.
