As apocalyptic as it may sound, the consistent decline in sales and traffic at traditional brick and mortar stores is not a phenomenon, coincidence or fad.  No longer inevitable, its demise has become a reality.  Like the dinosaur, the imminent destruction and its ultimate extinction is in sight.  The massive asteroid that has forever changed how, when and where the world shops, is called Amazon.

The malls, and especially legacy department stores like Sears, Macy’s and JCPenny, are among those on the endangered list.  In fact, Sears Holdings, failing to reinvent itself, is closing stores, selling off real estate assets and iconic brands like Craftsman just to survive.  Sears is in hospice and the financial world doesn’t expect it to live much longer. 

This website and the offer it contains is not a criticism of Jeff Bezos or his company Amazon. In fact, it is a tribute.  Founded in 1994, Bezos brilliantly built and maintains the biggest, safest and most convenient online shopping mall in the world.  Amazon simply does things very well. The attention to every detail is an extension of the genius and perfectionist of its founder.  

Investors and most of the financial world scoffed at the idea when Amazon was in its infant stage first selling books.  This giant has become the Biblical equivalent of a retail Goliath.  However, left unabated, it will be unstoppable.  Ironically, Amazon has become the online version of America’s "storied" mail-order retailer; Sears Roebuck and Company.

Many have successfully argued that in the game of retail business, Amazon is already a monopoly.

What happens when the same online company leases a fleet of jets and has drones delivering orders that use to take two days now in two hours? And what if mom while preparing dinner can go online and order whatever she needs by just talking and never looking at a screen or touching a keyboard? Did I just hear an "Echo" in the room or was that a "Ding Dong"? What happens when this online Goliath has no serious competitors? The answer is simple: “Healthy competition benefits everyone.”

As far as our physical health is concerned, “An apple a day is said to keep the doctor away.” As it applies to our economy and the computer and software industry, one could say: An “Apple” a day keeps a monopoly at bay.” Without healthy online competition, businesses of every kind, even those online, are at risk of the Blob’s insatiable appetite. Its high fiber diet began by eating books.

Amazon’s success is also a result of how it has managed its phenomenal growth. Instead of becoming weighted down with bureaucracy, it has maintained its entrepreneurial agility, creativity and focus. It also made consumers feel safe about buying things online. Unlike the Biblical Goliath, this giant won’t be easy to compete with or take down. If Amazon were ever to face a serious competitor, it will be at the hand of an agile marksman holding one hell of a slingshot with a brand that won't take 23 years to establish.

So where can one find such a slingshot, a slingshot and brand capable of slaying the mighty Goliath?   How do you take instant advantage of Amazon’s successes diverting their customers to your online site without relying on tired old SEO techniques?  Is it possible to bypass search engines altogether getting customers straight to your doorstep, your website?

The answer is absolutely "yes" and you just found it!  It's done by taking advantage of and capitalizing on the most recognizable "two note" melody the world has ever known.  It is called a doorbell and nearly every household in the world has one.  Can you imagine a brand that is reinforced and played every time a package is delivered anywhere in the world?  Simplicity is always the secret of success and it doesn’t get any simpler than

Jeff Bezos understood that “Brand names are more important online than they are in the physical world." Amazon is proof he knew precisely what he was talking about.

"" is far too good a domain for just any ordinary business.  In fact, it may be the best domain ever and is perfect for an online site like Amazon. Why?  Because it is an already established brand ready to go head to head with Amazon.  It can be done  with  simple and inexpensive radio spots.
