"When customers come to a brand site, they need to not only find a great experience, but compelling content and so what we’re really focused on is providing the commerce infrastructure as a service but allowing digital agencies and the brands to build these great sites that have tons of content to bring people back over and over again to their site, have them purchase there, build that brand affinity, and take away the reason people go to Amazon."
