TAS 136 Ask Scott Session #37 – Amazon FBA Questions

These “Ask Scott” episodes are Scott’s way of sitting down with you over a cup of coffee to talk about the ins and outs of doing business as an Amazon Private Label seller. It’s where you get the opportunity to ask an experienced and successful Amazon seller how he does the things he does to make his Amazon business successful. In this episode Scott answers real questions sent in from real listeners like you so get ready to hear practical responses to real life scenarios. And you can also find out how to ask your own questions, so be sure to listen.

How can I find the right graphic designer for my images, graphics, box, etc.?

There are lots of people who say they are graphic designers, but you’ve got to know that if you pay a small amount you’re not going to get good quality. This is a very important issue for Amazon sellers. You’ve got to have professional looking product logos and labels, and promotional materials so you don’t want to skimp on this. But how do you go about getting those things created in a way that gets you the quality you need? On this episode Scott answers a listener question about that issue and has a great recommendation of a place to go to find the right designer for you.

I’ve already launched one product that didn’t work out, so I’m looking at another. Should I delete the first product listing before I have my second ready?

Scott was very impressed with this listener. He followed through with the launch of a “test product” just to learn. The product didn’t sell as well as hoped but he took it as a learning experience and is giving Amazon sales another try. His question centers around what he should do with his previous product and its listing during the interim when he doesn’t have his new product ready yet. Scott’s answer, as usual, is common sense and very helpful. Find the time to sit down and listen to his response to this question. You’ll be glad you did!

I really believe that my product can change it’s market, but the market is very, very competitive. Is it unrealistic to think I can do that?

There are certain categories or niches on Amazon that are very, very crowded and competitive. It’s not typically a recommendation to try Amazon private label sales in a niche that is so crowded. It’s going to be harder than it needs to be and success will come very slowly. But this listener is convinced that his product idea is a game changer, but it would be in a very, very competitive niche. Scott gives advice about how to go about launching that kind of product and talks about the different sorts of tactics that you could take to get your game changing product the exposure it’s going to need. You won’t want to miss this one!
