Why your product listing might not be raking high enough.

How is your business faring as you get started? Is everything running smoothly or have you encountered some hiccups along the way? What can you do when you run into challenges like seeing your product listing rank lower than you had expected? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott goes over why a product listing might be raking lower than it should. If you find yourself in a similar situation, Scott says that it is important that you take the time to go back and look at your competitors in that category and find out what keywords they are using and how your strategy stacks up. Scott goes into further detail on this scenario in this episode and encourages sellers like you to check out the resources he has put together on keywords. Those can be found in the resources section at the end of this post.

Is it a good idea to use a freight forwarder?

Wouldn’t it be nice if you have your product go straight from your supplier to Amazon? What are the pros and cons of setting up that process? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott explains some of the complicated aspects of this option and whether its really worth it in the end. Scott starts off explaining why it’s so important for sellers to get connected with an inspector or some sort of service so you know that your product meets your quality standards before it leaves the manufacturer. He then goes on to share why he’s a huge fan of using freight forwarding services, like Flex Port. To hear more about this important topic, make sure to listen to this episode!
