This is a resource-packed episode for Amazon FBA sellers
Listen in as Scott outlines the most powerful tools you can use to crank your Amazon business to the next level.
PRODUCT RESEARCH TOOLS
Every Amazon seller has to have a system or a smart way to assess potential products that they could sell. There’s no easy way to do this, but there are many software apps that help make it easier than it would be without them. Scott’s got 4 that he recommends. Listen to this episode of the podcast to hear about all 4 and to find out how you can get purchase discounts on some of them.
All 4 are listed on the resource page at http://www.TheAmazingSeller.com/resources
Keyword research is a valuable skill to learn. Without it you won’t know how to optimize your listings to be found by potential customers who search Amazon for products like yours. Keyword research enables you to write your listing and product descriptions in a way that maximize the use of words that potential buyers are already looking for. In this episode of the Amazing Seller podcast Scott outlines 4 of his preferred keyword research tools and gives his recommendations for the strengths and weaknesses of each one.
Where are you going to find suppliers for your private label products? Do you know the first thing about how to find trusted sources that won’t rip you off and will actually deliver on their promises? There are a lot of potential sources of products out there but you’ve got to know where to find the ones that are trustworthy. In this episode of the Amazing Seller podcast Scott is going to recommend 3 primary places to find good suppliers for the products you may want to sell, two are foreign and one is in the United States.
PRODUCT PICTURES AND ARTWORK
Product images are a vital part of your Amazon listing, especially when you’re sourcing your own products. Your image has to present your product in a professional, eye-catching manner and serve as the true “image” of your brand and business. Where are you going to get those images made? Do you know where to begin? In this episode Scott is going to suggest 4 sources for those images that will serve you well. Check out the audio to get the full scoop on why he recommends these 4 and not others.
EMAIL FOLLOWUP AND COLLECTION
Once you’re able to start capturing customer information, you have to be able to follow up on those inquiries and sales by building a rapport with your customer base. This requires you to have some automated email follow up so that you can keep in touch with your customers regularly, promote your products, and truly scale up your business. In this episode of the Amazing Seller podcast Scott will tell you the 4 resources he uses to collect email, respond via automated systems, and set up pages where his customers can register their products or ask for updates.
All of these resources are listed on the resource page at http://www.TheAmazingSeller.com/resources
Much of what drives the Amazon search algorithms is product reviews. Reviews signal to Amazon and to potential buyers that your products are legitimate and your business is authentic and trustworthy. How do you get those reviews? How do you establish yourself to the point that customers will be willing to sacrifice the time it takes to leave you a review? In this episode of the Amazing Seller podcast Scott is going to share some resources that he uses to encourage and ask for reviews to quickly get his products established in the Amazon marketplace.
BUSINESS AND LEGAL STUFF
Any business owner can tell you, you have got to make sure you are doing things legally in order to avoid tax trouble, licensing and registration penalties, and all kinds of other things relating to the legality of your business and your business activities. Where do you go to get all those documents and other legal resources set up properly? In this episode of the Amazing Seller podcast Scott shares the one and only resource (besides his personal lawyer) that he uses to set up the legal aspects of his business.
Keeping accurate records of product purchases, sales, and profits is essential for a good business. How do you know what software or services you should use to keep track of your Amazon sales and profits? Scott is going to share his preferred accounting services in this episode of the Amazing Seller podcast.
One of the often overlooked but potentially devastating areas of business integrity has to do with paying sales tax. Just because you sell your products over the internet doesn’t mean that you don’t have to remit any sales tax to the government. You are responsible to make sure that the government is receiving its due from the sales of your Amazon FBA products. In this episode Scott is going to highlight some helpful resources that will automatically keep track of the taxes owed on your product sales, using the information already in your Amazon account. All of these resources are listed on the resource page at http://www.TheAmazingSeller.com/resources
BOOKS THAT CAN HELP YOU
Finally, Scott’s got 4 book recommendations for every Amazon FBA seller:

The War of Art
The One Thing
The Slight Edge
