A Little About Me (Tony)
Zappos at a Glance Corporate Background Founded in 1999 1400 employees (half in Las Vegas headquarters, half in Kentucky) #23 in FORTUNE MAGAZINE’s “100 Best Companies To Work For” Highest debut for a newcomer in 2009 Zappos is “Powered by Service” Providing the best online shopping experience possible. Fast, Free Shipping.   Free return shipping.  365-day return policy. Fast fulfillment.  Expedited delivery.  Fast, friendly & expert customer service. Best selection Over 1,000 brands 5 million items in warehouse 100% of products inventoried (no drop ship). Zappos is a service company that happens to sell clothing, shoes, handbags, eyewear, watches (and eventually a bunch of other stuff).
Recent Recognition: Nice, but we pay more attention to our customers TV Stories Oprah (2008/2009) ABC Nightline (2008) 60 Minutes (2007) Fortune “100 Best Companies to Work For” #23 (2009) – Highest ranking newcomer to list Fast Company “50 Most Innovative Companies” #20 (2009) BusinessWeek Top 25 “Customer Service Champs” #7 (2009)

VISION “ Whatever you’re thinking, think bigger.” Does the vision have meaning? Chase the vision, not the money…

RESEARCH HAS SHOWN:  HAPPINESS People are very bad at predicting what will bring them sustained happiness. “ When I get ___, I will be happy.” “ When I achieve ___, I will be happy.”
HAPPINESS:  There is a  SCIENCE  behind many aspects of business including: conversion psychology of buying direct marketing customer acquisition metrics repeat customer behavior, etc. What if you spent just 10% of your time studying and learning the  SCIENCE  of  HAPPINESS ? How much  HAPPIER  could you be?

Legal and Financial Disclaimer P.S.  You might be wondering why we need to have a legal and financial disclaimer in this presentation, but you are still reading, so our lawyers, auditors and accountants would really like to make sure we make the following clarifications. Although an audit was underway and almost done, the financial information presented in this slide show was unaudited.  We made every effort to present the best information we had at the time. Gross merchandise sales is a non-GAAP metric.  We use it to express the total demand across all of our web sites and stores. This number measures the dollar value of the orders placed in the year before accruing for certain items such as returns, and it ignores certain timing cut-offs that are required by GAAP for revenue recognition purposes.  If we were a public company, we would have to reconcile gross merchandise sales to the nearest GAAP metric (net sales), but we are currently a private company so the gross merchandise sales number should be viewed just as an interesting number that we want to share with our friends. This presentation contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, as well as assumptions that, if they ever materialize or prove incorrect, could cause our results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements and assumptions.  These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the risk of economic slowdown, the risk of over or underbuying, the risk of consumers not shopping online or at our web site at the rate we expected, the risk of supplier shortages, the risk of new or growing competition, the risk of a natural or some other type of disaster affecting our fulfillment operations or web servers, and the risk of the world generally coming to an end.  All statements other than statements of historical fact are statements that could be deemed forward-looking statements, including statements of expectation or belief; and any statement of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing.  Zappos.com assumes no obligation and does not intend to update these forward-looking statements.  Congratulations on making it through all the fine print.  If you enjoy fine print, look for openings on our legal and finance team at  jobs.zappos.com .

  • 51. Legal and Financial Disclaimer P.S. You might be wondering why we need to have a legal and financial disclaimer in this presentation, but you are still reading, so our lawyers, auditors and accountants would really like to make sure we make the following clarifications. Although an audit was underway and almost done, the financial information presented in this slide show was unaudited. We made every effort to present the best information we had at the time. Gross merchandise sales is a non-GAAP metric. We use it to express the total demand across all of our web sites and stores. This number measures the dollar value of the orders placed in the year before accruing for certain items such as returns, and it ignores certain timing cut-offs that are required by GAAP for revenue recognition purposes. If we were a public company, we would have to reconcile gross merchandise sales to the nearest GAAP metric (net sales), but we are currently a private company so the gross merchandise sales number should be viewed just as an interesting number that we want to share with our friends. This presentation contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, as well as assumptions that, if they ever materialize or prove incorrect, could cause our results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements and assumptions. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the risk of economic slowdown, the risk of over or underbuying, the risk of consumers not shopping online or at our web site at the rate we expected, the risk of supplier shortages, the risk of new or growing competition, the risk of a natural or some other type of disaster affecting our fulfillment operations or web servers, and the risk of the world generally coming to an end. All statements other than statements of historical fact are statements that could be deemed forward-looking statements, including statements of expectation or belief; and any statement of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing. Zappos.com assumes no obligation and does not intend to update these forward-looking statements. Congratulations on making it through all the fine print. If you enjoy fine print, look for openings on our legal and finance team at jobs.zappos.com .
