Marketing

Merkato

Survive and Thrive in the Amazon Era. Amazon is fundamentally reshaping how we shop. Amazon accounts for half of all US ecommerce sales and 80% of all forecasted ecommerce growth in 2019. Even for purchases that occur elsewhere, consumers are twice as likely to search for products on Amazon as Google.

Think of Merkato as a specialized extension of your team; a down-in-the-trenches partner to help make Amazon work for, not against you. Their experts work with your team to craft a comprehensive Amazon strategy tailored to your business context and execute it using the most sophisticated tools, processes, and tactics available.

Product Sourcing

Jaguar AI

Jaguar AI is a product sourcing tool that uses artificial intelligence to help sellers find new products. The artificial intelligence looks at products with an algorithm similar to how a human would pick products. It combines typical sourcing data with human decision making and tracks things that are trending online too.
