CEO Insights: The etailz Platform of Products and Services

Recently, I’ve been getting several questions on how etailz partners with brands. In this post, I’d like to address these questions and define the various products and services that etailz offers.

At etailz, our mission is to be the ultimate online growth partner. We empower brands to achieve their online retail goals through innovative, proprietary technology, tailored strategies, and mutually beneficial partnerships.

To get a little more tactical today, I’d like to focus on the suite of products and services that we offer to our partners.

etailz Partnership Models

We partner with our brands in 3 primary ways:

1 – Software
In this model, you own inventory, and you sell it.

We equip your own team to work smarter and faster with our suite of self-service software. We offer solutions for automated inventory management, marketing, and brand protection. We have built our tools on cutting edge data science and artificial intelligence, prescriptive analytics, and managed data to support sales >$800M.

Learn more about our software.

2 – Agency Services
In this model, you own inventory, and we sell it.

We use our proprietary technology to serve as an extension of your brand while you maintain inventory control. We can manage your entire online sales channel or provide software and services on an a la carte basis.

Learn more about our agency model.

3 – Retail Partnership
In this model, we own inventory, and we sell it.

Brands can partner with us to represent their products across marketplaces. As your retailer, we’ll purchase inventory through consistent POs and fuel sustainable growth through our proven software and services. This is similar to how Amazon operates its 1P business. As they raise the requirements for brands to work with the traditional 1P model, companies like ours step in to fill in that market gap.

Learn more about our retail partnership model.

These are three primary partnership models, but brands aren’t confined to them. We can deploy any combination of our software and services in the manner that best serves your brand.

As you can see, our approach to working with brands aligns directly to our mission of helping brands succeed on various marketplaces.

Next, I’d like to go deeper into some of the specifics we offer through these different partnership models.
