Re-release - Should you sell your product on Amazon?

Bring Your Product Idea to Life

29-12-2023 • 26 mins

Welcome back. This week, we're revisiting a previous episode for two main reasons. First, it's the holiday season, and I know many of you are enjoying the break or are quite busy. It didn't seem like the perfect moment to introduce something new. Second, as the year wraps up and we look forward to a fresh start, it's an excellent time for businesses to reflect and plan. If you've been thinking about starting to sell on Amazon or improving your existing efforts there, this episode is for you.

I work closely with many Amazon sellers, guiding them through setting up and enhancing their presence. I've seen great successes, but I've also seen challenges, often beyond the seller's control. That's why this episode is all about understanding if Amazon is the right marketplace for you. We'll talk about how to figure that out and what factors you should consider before diving in. So, whether you're unwinding during the holidays or gearing up for the new year, this episode could provide valuable insights for your business journey in 2024.
