(Burlington, NC) - Ravenox Founder and CEO Sean Brownlee featured in Amazon's 2019 Small Business Impact Report.
The report highlights how Amazon benefits the millions of small and medium-sized business (SMBs), content creators, and developers in the U.S. and worldwide working with Amazon. This year's report revealed findings from across Amazon's businesses, including: More than 1.9 million SMBs, content creators, and developers in the U.S. are currently working with Amazon; SMBs selling in Amazon’s stores have created an estimated 1.6 million jobs worldwide, up from 900,000 in 2017; thousands of independent authors earned more than $50,000, with more than a thousand surpassing $100,000 in royalties in 2018; Amazon gave more than $500 million in AWS credits to help startups accelerate their growth and development in 2018.
As one of the only twisted rope manufacturers in the United States, Ravenox is a true, direct-to-consumer manufacturer. Working with Amazon has been instrumental in Ravenox's manufacturer-direct-to-consumer business model giving customers the opportunity to buy directly from Ravenox and receive the highest quality products and service without going through distributors or retailers.
“By building our infrastructure alongside Amazon’s network we can work directly with everyday customers, get quicker product feedback and make changes to our products based on our customers needs. We’re also able to work with business clients and create new products for them much faster than the traditional, slower business models’ other manufacturers have,” says Sean Brownlee. “As the pace of technological change quickens, we are able to keep pace, serve our customers better and help grow the economies of our partners”.
Brownlee has been proud to work with companies of all sizes on their overall brand management, helping them navigate sales on the Amazon marketplace and grow their business. Helping large companies effectively control their brand presence and scale their business with long-term strategy and focus and helping smaller companies bring their product to market.
