EP178 - Chewy IPO and Listener Questions Part 2 

Recap of Chewy IPO (Chewy S1)

Listener Questions Part 2:

Q5: Nick Barrett Would be really interested to hear your guys thoughts on how an established e-commerce store should expand into new product categories. Is it a good idea to launch new niche websites through Shopify to do this, or is it better to keep focus within a single e-commerce site and expand within that?

Q6 Rebecca Saunders Have you seen any recent data on the costs of customer acquisition online via the various channels, and how these have changed over time? I hear a lot anecdotally but haven’t managed to access any reliable data. Thanks in advance! Love the show btw (all the way from rainy London).

Q7 Amit Agarwal Have you ever done some research on e-commerce subscriptions such as amazon subscribe and save or autoship? Also, what is the industry trends for bark box, hello fresh and other bundle subscriptions?

Q8: Parker Block 

Hey Scot, What do you see as likely business implications of rising appetite for anti-trust action (see FTC/DOJ announcement , Lina Khan joining Congress staff, etc ) on platforms which monetize  consumer data ?

Q9: Baxter Overman

How do you put consumers at ease with in-home delivery services? (i.e. Walmart grocery). Wouldn’t drop-off when the customer is home for certain items (or lockers) be easier to sell?

Q10 Aakash Gupta

What’s your favorite app that you’ve downloaded in the last few months?

Q11 Twitter: Natalie Dillon mentioned us as one of her top podcasts – thanks Natalie!

Q12 Ted: Mixed use retail entertainment?

Q 13 Michelle Grant

 Thoughts on pricing strategy in an omnichannel world where price transparency is high and filled with bots to find the lowest price

Q15 Melissa Burdick

The advertising race to the wallet – We’ve seen some big news lately: Target in talks to buy Triad, Walmart who is bringing advertising in house and just made a key hire Suresh as their CTO….where is this going for ads?  Is it going to be a war for brands wallet? Is everyone going to take a page from the Amazon playbook, bring ads in house, and move to a self-service performance advertising, PPC world?

Where is the $ coming/going to come from?  In the chart below, it looks like Amazon is taking from Google.  (I asked a big CPG this question and I asked where is this coming from – or are you just getting more $$?  Their answer – more $$).

How should brands prepare?

Q16 Melissa Burdick

Is Amazon going to do to walgreens/bartells/CVS what they did to the bookstore (kill the bookstore to build a bookstore) with the acquisition of pill pack + private label (aspirin, etc) and enable the ability to sell mass CPG profitably?

Q17 Melissa Burdick

Can Scot please update his Amazon Scape – how has it changed?

Q18 Melissa Burdick

When is Spiffy coming to Seattle?

Q1: Perry Solomon What do you project the effect of the FedEx contract termination to be, this especially applies to 3P merchants using FedEx for SFP?
