Simple Mobile – #8 Most Amazon-able Brand @ ComplexCon

Simple Mobile

Brand mission: In the increasingly expensive and confusing world of mobile carriers Simple Mobile offers affordable alternative mobile plan options and phone buying services. 

Market insight as to why the product is hot: Phones will continue to be a necessity, however pricing on the newest models and the susceptibility of breaking is driving renewed interest in refurbished / older model phones. While consolidation in the mobile market leaves lower-income shoppers with little options for good mobile service, Simple Mobile has a very simple value proposition and I am sure quite interesting unit economics (wish I was an investor!). 

Why will it do well on amazon: People already are active on amazon for phones and phone accessories and it is a natural step for them to extend that to the carrier service itself. I foresee an interesting conversation with Amazon’s team about offering an option to sell the Simple Mobile’s wireless plans through the site, as well. The Fire Phone was a huge flop, but this offer of value to Prime Members makes perfect sense to me.
