Episode 81 – 5 Stories of Amazon Sellers Making Their Own Adventure with Freedom Ticket
If you have spent any time at all in the Amazon selling ecosystem, then you’re probably aware of Kevin King and the Freedom Ticket.
The original Freedom Ticket was created when Helium 10’s founder, Manny Coats worked together with Kevin to create the Illuminati Mastermind, a group (later to become Helium 10 Elite) that was established as a way for successful businesses to reach further using high-level strategies and tactics.
There were courses available, but Kevin was frustrated with the cookie-cutter approach to so many of them.
What he wanted was a course that was from its very inception, a completely different way to learn to sell on Amazon.
However, on this episode of the Serious Sellers Podcast, Helium 10’s Director of Training and Customer Success, Bradley Sutton isn’t just interested in a different way of selling.
He’s focused instead on different sellers.
Today Bradley is speaking with 5 very different sellers from 4 countries who have achieved varying levels of Amazon success and whose aspirations also differ wildly.
The only real constant is that they are all making their way with the help of Kevin King’s and Helium 10’s Freedom Ticket.
But, they have a not-so-secret weapon in their quest because . . .
Kevin King and Helium 10 have teamed up again to offer Freedom Ticket 2.0 and there’s an amazing new way that sellers can take advantage of this industry leading knowledge.
As always, you can choose the stand-alone access for $997.
NOW, it’s Included with the Helium 10 software suite and free with Helium 10 membership for $97 Per Month.
One of the most interesting aspects of selling on Amazon is how different everyone’s origin story is.
On this podcast, Bradley first speaks with Paul, from Glasgow Scotland who loved Kevin King’s no-nonsense attitude and how Kevin’s product research method didn’t mirror the tired old “light weight, fits in a shoe-box, under 30 dollars” cliché.
He also appreciated Kevin’s ultra-modern launch techniques.
They seem to have worked because one year later, Paul’s 5 products have brought him over 175,000 dollars a month in sales on Amazon and he’s only getting started.
Next, Bradley had a conversation with Steve from Springfield, Missouri who spoke of his early days learning the Amazon ropes and of his dreams to retire early to the gulf coast.
Steve says that in the beginning he and his wife, “Youtubed the heck out of it” and aren’t afraid of a little hard work to make success on Amazon happen.
Stacey from Melbourne, Australia followed. She’s a full-time mom and teacher who is going to find a way to fit selling on Amazon into her daily schedule.
Ian was next, and he’s excited that the Freedom Ticket helped him to feel like “He’s now understanding Amazon and not just getting kicked around.”
Then there’s Amanda who is looking to use the skills she’s developed on Etsy to grow a new Amazon business.
Do you see yourself in here somewhere?
If you’re like me, you might be a combination of two or three of these Freedom Ticket devotees.
Listen in and find out more.

The pod cast was kinda fun, never done anything like that before. Looking back, listening to some of my answers to Bradley’s questions I could have done a little better job with my answers. The one I go back to is, “is there anything that scares you about starting an Amazon Sellers business?” I would guess that picking that 1st product to sell is one of the biggest hurdles for most people wanting to start this business. Although I want to pick a winner the 1st go around, I’m not going to worry about it to much. I look at it as more a part of the learning process to make all the information I’ve heard and seen, click. Going through the steps of the process, hands on, and actually doing it will teach me more than just listening to tons of information. I’m in week 4 module 22 and it’s getting pretty deep but I’m sticking with it, and go back often to earlier modules to review some of the key points. Helium 10 is a great tool for learning this business, and I’m so glad I took the leap and purchased the subscription. Thanks to Bradley and Kevin for all the time and effort they put into helping us all through the process. Great job guys.
