INFOGRAPHIC: How Amazon Makes Money—And Why They’re Worth Over A Trillion Dollars

Published

on

Amazon’s stupendous growth from continuous negative returns for decades to being valued at over a trillion dollars, is hard to miss.

To the regular consumer, Amazon is the world’s e-commerce leader, the top retailer and pretty much main source for anything. Although, with all the storage costs, shipping and logistics, there’s very little room for profits in that model.

In addition, they’ve admitted that their tablet business, when they launched, was designed to operate at a loss. So how do they make money?

Simple. By leveraging their vast reach and tapping into non-retailer business models.

And its biggest win? Amazon Web Services. The web hosting service has raked in significant profits for the company, helping it negate a large amount of its losses and drive more businesses.

Check out the breakdown of Amazon’s vast money streams in the infographic below. NOTE: The company’s growing so fast that its market value today is more than double of what you see in the chart.

This Uber Killer Wants To Drive You Around In A Lambo…For £5

Published

on

Uber and Lyft broke the internet last week with the headline-grabbing news of their impending IPOs.

While all that was going on, another ride-hailing service called miwhip (“my whip” — get it?) came out of left field, announcing their desire to drive ride-hailers around in luxury sports cars like Lamborghinis, Ferraris, and whatever the hell else the heart desires.

But as usual, there’s a caveat…

Not going to call it a bait-and-switch, but here’s what Forbes wrote on their Instagram:

A new Uber rival in London, miwhip, lets you travel in gold supercars, and trips can cost as little as £5.

The ride-sharing app launched at the end of last month with an Austin Powers villain-worthy Lamborghini Aventador, Ferrari 488, Rolls Royce Ghost II, Mercedes G Wagon and McLaren 720s.

Within 48 hours of receiving the private hire operator license from Transport for London, miwhip spent over £1.5 million on supercars.

Miwhip takes 10% less commission than their competitors and offers daily cash outs as an homage to the five cofounders’ father, who was a mini-cab driver who worked to juggle work and family life.
