This is outside of the topics we normally cover, but we wanted to bring it to the attention of former Sea Org members.
Amazon has launched a major recruiting and ad campaign for people to become Amazon Delivery Partners. This means starting your own business as a dedicated Amazon delivery service. We’ve heard Amazon commercials on the radio here in Los Angeles and thought we would pass it along.
This might be an interesting opportunity for some former Sea Org members to consider investigating on their own or as a team. From our perspective, this opportunity is realistic, doable, and has Amazon’s support behind it. Amazon’s market cap is $1.6 trillion dollars USD.
When Amazon describes what it wants in the brochure below, this type of business plays to the strengths of Sea Org members: A strong work ethic, organization, teamwork, statistics, and deadlines. The difference is that you are getting paid for your hard work and building your own business.
The job description is simple: Deliver goods ordered on Amazon to the buyers on a timely basis. Amazon Prime’s target is 1-2 days. The goal is to deliver in 1 day.
For those not interested in delivery services, one of the best free job boards out there is Indeed.com.
On the consumer side of its business, Amazon is also very simple: Amazon is a sales, warehousing, and logistics company. Amazon allows anyone to sell on its platform and to set their own prices. Amazon sellers can ship their own goods or they can send their goods to Amazon warehouses for delivery to the customer.
“FBA” means “Fulfilled by Amazon.” With the pandemic, the warehousing and logistics demands on Amazon FBA have grown exponentially. Amazon ordered over 100,000 electric delivery vans in 2020 to help meet the demand:
- Amazon’s delivers 2.9 million packages a day to its 100+ million Prime customers.
- Amazon spent about $120 million in 2019 on delivering products to its Prime customers in 2019.
As part of its cost reduction strategy, Amazon wants to set people up as independent delivery contractors. Amazon wants to adopt an Uber type of model for Prime deliveries. This strategy is aimed at reducing Amazon employee costs while freeing Amazon from having to rely on third party carriers Fed-Ex and UPS.
Amazon says start up costs to be a delivery partner can be as low as $10,000. This is where a person can get a Small Business Loan or invest with other people.
A delivery company would not be hard to start and could get off the ground quickly with business from Amazon. Having a dedicated client like Amazon from the beginning eliminates sales and marketing costs. This is exactly where new small business often fail.
