Planet Amazon Podcast Episode 6
A New Alternative to Connect Amazon Brands with Customers
In this episode, Juha Mikkola, founder of Usko Privacy, explains his revolutionary idea to connect Amazon brands and sellers directly with their customers. This is a new way of doing off-Amazon advertising where the customer agrees to get contacted by the seller.
Usko aims to give sellers and brands the ability to communicate directly with their customers while also empowering consumers to take ownership of their data and monetize it.
With Usko, consumers can gain insights into their shopping patterns, track their spending by category, and even stay updated on price fluctuations. What sets Usko apart is its unique approach to data ownership, where consumers receive a portion of the revenue when sellers and brands message them.
