When you walk into a supermarket or some other physical facility filled with merchandise, it’s as if an invisible hand is pushing you to grab stuff from the shelves. Before you know it, your basket or cart is full, and you’ve made up your mind to buy all of it.
It’s not magic, people. It’s the power of visual strategy.
You see, retail facility managers pay a lot of attention to how their stores look. After all, humans are a visual species that tends to equate seeing with believing. You can imagine then how a store owner with some extra cash would want to invest in the visual appeal of their establishment.
Are you gifted with artistic flair and spatial intelligence? If so, we’d like to point you in the direction of a big brand with boatloads of extra cash.
Earn some sweet cash from none other than Amazon, which is currently hiring a project/program manager to handle visual merchandising curation. Put your creative skills to the test by taking advantage of this remote, contingent work opportunity.
More on Amazon
By now, everyone and their grandma have bought, sold, streamed, or consumed products that came their way through the mighty Amazon empire. It’s astonishing to see how far the Amazon brand has come, especially when you consider its humble roots.
On July 16, 1995, Amazon came into existence as an online platform for selling books. However, founder Jeff Bezos had no intention of running a business that played it safe. After barely a month, Amazon was doing business in all 50 U.S. states and close to 50 countries as well.
Just a couple of years after its launch, Amazon went public. (In case you’re curious, its IPO raised $54 million.) By the end of the decade, its catalog had expanded to include music, electronics, tools, children’s products, and more.
In the 2000s, Amazon became a highly profitable venture for entrepreneurs, who were given permission to sell their own merchandise on the platform. As technology grew at an exponential rate in the 21st century, Amazon added one feature after another: Amazon Prime, Kindle, Prime Video, Audible, Amazon Music…the list goes on.
Amid all this online action, Amazon continues to run several physical stores across eight states (plus Washington, D.C.). Let’s make one thing perfectly clear: Even if these stores proudly display the Amazon brand, they still need to look neat and visually appealing at all times. That’s no easy feat, but we’re sure you can pull it off!
