Once per week or so I love to go live on Zoom in the Facebook group with whoever can join me and answer as many ecommerce and Amazon selling related questions as possible.
Recently, we recorded one of these sessions and captured it for you. The questions we discussed are all about getting started and a free video Jim recommends, using the Replens business model, a great resource for booksellers, how to deal with IP issues and more. Great help and resources for all skill levels of sellers - enjoy!
