How to Run an Amazon Business (FBA)

December 2nd, 2014

My business partner and I are about six months into running our Amazon business and it’s been an absolute blast learning so much about what it takes to find a product, private label it, send it to Amazon, market it, and collect the money from Amazon.  (My favorite part is that last one about collecting money.)

We’ve made a lot of progress and learned a lot along the way.  But we’ve also put some effort into outsourcing and even laying out the roles and responsibilities.   Read More

Another Update on Our Amazon Business

November 17th, 2014

As an entrepreneur, I’m always thinking.

If you are a business owner or self-employed, you know the feeling.  You can’t help but wonder if you’re using your time wisely.  You wonder what direction your business should take.  You wonder when you should quit and when you should shift gears.

This year has been a banner year for me.  I’ve been owning an e-commerce business and doing Internet marketing since 2003.  Yet, 2014 is the one year where I’ve gained incredible clarity as to what direction I should take.

Keyword Research Tools for SEO

November 14th, 2014

I’m mostly working with my Amazon business these days.  But because I’m still consulting on SEO, several times this past year I have trained Keyword Research to several groups of people.

Keyword Research is difficult to teach.  There are tools and principles.  But to do deeper keyword research, experience and a thorough understanding of the nuances is important.  Below are the tools and principles I’ve been teaching.  I’m posting it so that I have it handy in the future and so that any readers can benefit.

My Amazing Selling Machine Review & How to do Amazon Marketing

July 7th, 2014

Now that you know what I’ve been doing so far this year and why I’m focused on Amazon Marketing, let’s talk about how I learned.  As such, I’ll give my honest opinions about “Amazing Selling Machine” by Matt Clark and Jason Katzenback.

To start, just in case you don’t know me, here’s what you need to know.  I’m not some gullible wimp online who enjoys throwing money at anything that makes hyped up claims about how I can get rich quick.  (No offense to anyone who is.)  I’ve been doing Read More

Why I’m Focused on Amazon Marketing

July 7th, 2014

I started a new business (with my business partner) that focuses on Amazon this year.  But I think I had different reasons than most others do.

Most people focus on Amazon because of the money and the appeal of working from anywhere.  That’s cool.  I like those things just as much as the next guy (or girl).  After all, everyone knows that Amazon is huge.  You probably buy more on Amazon this year than last year.  But even more importantly, your family and friends are too.  It’s not just geeks that buy from Amazon.  EVERYONE does.

I don’t want to dwell on this.  Everyone else does.  But you should know the numbers…

Important Goals for 2014

January 2nd, 2014

I often set goals for myself and my business all throughout the year. But it’s always good to write them down when a new year starts. If nothing else, it helps you to remember to look at them at the end of the next year.

Special thanks to Richard Lazazzera for writing a similar list of his preparations for 2014. It motivated me to write mine down.

1. STAY FOCUSED, STAY BALANCED

As always, I have personal goals that are more important than my business or financial goals. They are top priority and always will be.
