#244 – Amazon Australia, Split Testing, and Navigating E-Com Patent Issues
For many, the early years selling on Amazon are referred to as the “wild west days.” Amazon’s relaxed rules governing reviews and giveaways allowed new products to rocket to the top of the page (in many cases) without a single penny having been spent on PPC.
While selling on Amazon has changed dramatically in the last five years, many of the processes that helped entrepreneurs find success back then, are still relevant today. That’s why in this episode of the Serious Sellers Podcast, Helium 10’s Director of Training and Chief Evangelist, Bradley Sutton welcomes Leonard Palad, an e-commerce veteran who’s here to help put selling on Amazon in 2021 into historical perspective.
After charging an Amazon selling course to his wife’s credit card, Leonard quickly found that e-commerce was in his blood. So much so, that he’s still (very successfully) selling his first Amazon product. Beginner’s luck? Sometimes. Most often it’s a result of doing a lot of the little things, and all of the big things right. Listen in and you’ll have the opportunity to hear about what has made Leonard such an Amazon-selling success.
Then, take those strategies and start your own e-commerce dynasty. It’s true; the wild west days are over but there are still plenty of riches out there to be had by those who are working hard and following time-tested paths to success.
