Salesforce is a deal-breaker for many people in the business of business, even those who are passionate about the company.
As we noted last week, the company has been under fire from competitors for its failure to deliver on its promise to provide an online-only product and service.
This week, as we reported, a new deal for the company to sell ads and other ads on Amazon’s Kindle Fire has made a huge splash.
According to Business Insider, Amazon’s deal will net the company a significant $10-million payout to its employees.
The deal is being signed by Amazon’s chief operating officer, Jeff Bezos, as well as Chief Executive Officer Anthony Wood and Amazon chief product officer, Brian McBride.
The ad deal comes as the company is facing criticism from some members of Congress who want Amazon to disclose more about its advertising and other sales tactics.
In a letter to Amazon’s CEO last week and obtained by Business Insider , a group of lawmakers wrote: It is imperative that we know from Amazon whether the company will continue to use the tools that it claims to be best suited for a future digital world.
We are particularly concerned about whether these ad strategies will help make Amazon a truly competitive marketplace for the 21st century.
Salesforce’s deal is likely to be viewed as a victory for online advertisers who are concerned that Amazon’s ad deals have been too low to compete with the likes of Adblock Plus, which costs $1 per ad, and AdblockX, which allows users to block ad-friendly sites.
The fact that the company’s ad revenue is expected to make up for Amazon’s lack of ad revenue in the future should be a major concern to advertisers who rely on this revenue stream.
As the WSJ noted, the deal is unlikely to result in significant revenue gains for advertisers, since the company hasn’t delivered on its promises to deliver an online product and services.
This is because Amazon has historically been unable to meet its sales goals because of the lack of ads on its platform.
As a result, the amount of ads being offered to customers has been a key indicator of how much demand the company can generate.
