There are countless different types companies that provide a large array of products and services to individuals around the world. All of these businesses can be categorized in one or both of two categories: product, or service.
A service-based company, such as Uber, a lawyer, or a plumber, offer a professional service. Select services could be done without these companies but a majority of the population would rather hire the work to someone else.
A product-based company, such as Amazon, Walmart, or Barnes and noble, provide products. Some select product-based companies, manufacture and distribute their products, while others have suppliers from which they get their products and then they distribute to buyers.
Determining my favorite product-based company is a hard decision, however, it would have to be Amazon.com. It is really handy to have a reliable online platform that carries nearly every imaginable item sold on amazon. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, did a remarkable job in creating and developing an effective online shopping platform. Amazon offers opportunity for other smaller businesses to distribute their products, and it also offers opportunity for individuals, such as bloggers, to earn money by promoting their products.
Amazon manufactures some of their products, but a majority of products are sold by businesses and individuals, through the Amazon platform. Amazon is like an online mall, only, way bigger than any physical mall. Amazon was an innovative idea, that has created a unique online community that has been a huge convenience to many people (including me) throughout their daily lives.
