It was yet another record-breaking Prime Day, with this year’s event surpassing sales from Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018 combined. At this point, the shock factor of Amazon’s continued success has worn off and many have come to expect such results from the ecommerce giant.
The same cannot be said for brands. As competitor and ad saturation continue to increase on Amazon, stellar results are far from guaranteed for all brands.
Kaspien worked proactively with our partners to ensure they’d be among those who enjoyed the Prime Day benefits.
