#218 – The Science Behind “Going Viral” with Rachel Miller
Not sure where to start with your first Amazon product? You may want to turn your attention towards social media.
Today on the Serious Sellers Podcast, Helium 10’s Director of Training and Chief Evangelist, Bradley Sutton welcomes Rachel Miller. Born in New Jersey, raised in the Menanite area of Pennsylvania, and currently living in Texas, Rachel is no stranger to variety! Especially when it comes to different communities.
Like so many of us, Rachel had one idea of what she wanted for a career but life and a big family (as it always does) had other plans. She created her own blog, which she promptly nurtured and grew to 10 million page views per month. Having successfully fostered a bustling online community, she set her sights on something bigger: e-commerce. More specifically, finding a product to sell on Amazon leveraging social media communities.
