A Journey through the 'Amazon'
The chances are you’ve seen THAT picture of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, the only occupant of a very 90s-looking office, with wires everywhere, and an early days amazon.com logo plastered on the wall.
Fast forward 20 years, and it’s chalk and cheese. Amazon is now worth $134.5bn and Jeff has become the world’s richest person (albeit with a divorce settlement pending).
Beginning life as an online book retailer, Amazon has grown to so much more. You can now buy over 100 million items online, which is a pretty remarkable rise.
To celebrate Amazon’s monumental feat, we’ve compiled some of the amazing stats and facts you probably don’t know about the online giant. Take a look and see what’s new to you.
Amazing Amazon - What You Don't Know
- Amazon nearly launched as relentless.com (it still redirects), before Jeff chose the name we love today because websites were listed in alphabetical order.
- Amazon’s success started early. In its initial month in business the online giant received orders from 50 US states and 45 countries around the world.
- However, it took seven years before the company started turning a profit – a small $5m reported in January 2002 for the previous quarter.
- Fortune rank Amazon as the #3 most admired company in the world.
- And speaking of worldly feats, Amazon is also the 10th most popular website in the world – pretty good going.
- Ever heard of AmazonSmile? We hadn’t. Shop there and you’ll have the bonus of 0.5% of your purchase price being donated to charity.
- Amazon are revolutionary, using 45,000 robots in fulfillment centres around the world. Sounds like a Rise of the Machines scenario.
- And that’s not all. They’re planning a Blade Runner-esque future called Prime Air, with drones delivering packages within just 30 minutes of order.
- Amazon has spread its wings far and wide, owning 41 subsidiaries and brands. This includes Zappos, IMDb, Whole Foods and Audible.
- Amazon love pets. Working here you’ll be surrounded by furry friends, and the Seattle campus is said to have 6,000 dogs onsite.
- Time is money, so the old adage goes – and that’s certainly true when it comes to Amazon. The site once went offline for just 49 minutes… but cost the company a whopping $5.7m in sales.
- Amazon have listed what’s probably the most expensive book in the world – for a pricey $23m. It was all an algorithmic error though, with the price later corrected to $106.23.
- It feels as though Amazon have had a monopoly on the market for years, but in fact its dominance has doubled in recent times. In 2012 Amazon accounted for just 25% of all online sales, compared to 47% nowadays.
- Amazon actually pays its employees to leave their role, in the aptly named “Pay to Quit” programme. They offer every new starter $2,000 to quit their role, increasing the offer $1,000 each year thereafter (to a max of $5,000). According to Bezos, this policy will “encourage folks to take a moment and think about what they really want.”
- Amazon might not be the global giant of today, if it weren’t for a little help from Bezos’ parents. They used $300,000 of retirement savings to invest in Amazon.
