Why your brand needs a spokesperson.

Are you more or less likely to buy from a brand that makes an effort to engage with you? Seriously! Sure, some brands can be over the top and cheesy but the ones that get it make an effort to support their customer community. On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott shares why he is convinced that brands have a greater chance to succeed when they have a spokesperson. You may not feel like you could pull off being the spokesperson for your brand, that’s fine! But you would be wise to take the time and connect with a social media influencer or someone you know who would be willing to partner with you and serve in that capacity.

Compensation for product reviews.

With all the recent changes at Amazon regarding reviews and how they are solicited, is it wise to provide compensation for product reviews? Is there a better way to boost your chances for reviews? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott provides his opinion on giving reviewers compensation for their product reviews. Now that Amazon has cracked down on how reviews work and who posts reviews, Scott says that it’s best to avoid any forms of compensation in exchange for reviews of your product. If you want to share a group code in a group, that’s fine as long as the group isn’t said to be a review group.
