"If there's one reason we have done better than of our peers in the Internet space over the last six years, it is because we have focused like a laser on customer experience, and that really does matter, I think, in any business. It certainly matters online, where word of mouth is so very, very powerful."

- Jeffrey P. Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com.

"What makes their core business so compelling is that they are focused on everything the customer wants. When you act in that manner many times Wall Street doesn't appreciate it."

- Scott W. Devitt, an analyst with Stifel, Nicolaus & Co., Inc.3,in 2008.

Introduction

In 2009, US-based online retailer Amazon.com, Inc. (Amazon) topped BusinessWeek's 2009 annual list of customer service champs4.

The list included companies which used creative strategies to retain customer loyalty in a recessionary environment based on the quality of staff, efficiency of service, likeliness to refer, and repeated visits.
