Top Mistakes to Avoid When Selling on Amazon

amazon files Jun 04, 2018

Many believe that experience is the best teacher. While it may be for some, the downside is that once the mistake has been made, you can never undo it. For this reason, it is best to listen and learn from somebody else’s mistake to make sure you don’t go down the same path as you strive to grow your Amazon business.

Today, we’re sharing the top mistakes to avoid on your Amazon business. We share our stories, the mistakes we’ve made and the lessons we learned from them so that you can avoid making the same mistakes. We also discuss the significance of establishing good relationships with vendor representatives, how to get quick answers from your vendors, and how to get freebies and discounts for your Amazon business.

"Don’t give up easily. Don’t be a quitter. Practice makes you better, not perfect."
- Amy Feierman
