1. Target Customers/Users

 Amazon targets those people who have access to the Internet and have subscribed to online banking such as credit cards, PayPal, debit cards, Western Union and so forth. Additionally, Amazon targets customers worldwide and not the US only. Amazon reaches its customers through partnerships. Through partnerships with other firms, the company is able to offer its products to the consumers of the partner (Amazon, 2018). Besides, Amazon reaches its users through establishing SEO and AdWords. Amazon mainly uses social media to reach customers especially Google. The attention of the customers of Amazon would be attracted due to the value proposition of the firm (Amazon, 2018). This proposition includes an online experience store, convenient shopping, and a one-click store. The table below shows the classification of Amazon’s customers using demographics and psychographics.
