amazon files podcast Nov 05, 2018

Are you constantly disappointed in your Amazon sales or maybe you had high hopes that have been deflated? 

This is the podcast for you! WE CAN FIX YOU UP!

Every business takes time and patience to grow and build. Having realistic expectations while selling on Amazon will help move you forward in a positive and consistent way.

Everyone wants to shoot for the moon when they set up their Amazon business but doing so may lead to unnecessary disappointment. If you set your goals and expectations too high in the beginning, then you will soon be wondering about what you are doing wrong. You should realize that you may not be doing anything wrong and you may just be setting your goals too high.

Today, we discuss how to set realistic expectations for Amazon selling success. We share our thoughts on how to set realistic expectations based upon where you are right now and the importance of celebrating your wins, even the small ones. We also explain how to become more efficient in your Amazon business, what you should consider when setting goals, and how creating a schedule can impact your success.
