Hello and welcome to week 2 of our 10 week Build a Business boot camp!
Amazon is the world’s largest marketplace. If you aren’t selling on Amazon- WHY NOT!?!? Let’s fix that this week!
Show Objectives - The Why
Over half of the products sold in Amazon’s store come from small and medium-sized businesses. “At Amazon, supporting small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) is a fundamental part of our work and an extension of our customer-centric culture. We see value in investing in the success of sellers, artisans, authors, package-delivery and logistics services, and software developers. When they thrive, our customers benefit from the products and services they offer. That’s part of the reason that over the course of 2019 and 2020, Amazon will have invested more than $30 billion in logistics, tools, services, programs, and people to foster the growth of our SMB sellers.”
Besides selling your products on Amazon, Amazon has a suite of services designed for small businesses but most don't take advantage of them, mainly because they don’t know about them!

When I say it’s too much to include here, I mean it!
