What To Expect:
Learning how to sell on the Amazon marketplace can be a daunting process, with numerous factors coming into play that can determine whether your business is destined to sink or swim.

In the first of six FREE workshops, ex-Amazon account manager & The Listing People founder, George Reid, will outline the key areas that businesses must focus on to lay their Amazon foundations in 2019 - the same foundations that will underpin your Amazon strategy for the next 3-5 years.

George (and special guests) will provide 'how to' advice and insights, as well as discussing some of the broader issues facing Australian Amazon sellers right now.

He’ll dive deeper into new selling features that will be available on the marketplace in 2019, operational changes and long term growth strategies that you can implement within your business – whether you’re currently selling on Amazon or not


Existing Amazon Sellers: We’ll highlight the major challenges facing existing sellers, and what you need to do as a business to overcome them. We’ll also reveal new selling features that will be rolled out in 2019, and how you need to leverage them to maximise sales.

Amazon Newbies: George will run through the top mistakes 80% of Amazon sellers are making right now, which not only lead to poor sales, but can also significantly stagnate your growth.

If you're really serious about launching a successful Amazon business, then this is an event you do not want to miss.

*Hosted by George Reid*
George worked at Amazon UK for just under 2-years, during which time he worked alongside some of the largest brands within Europe, advising them on how to drive strategic growth on the marketplace.

After leaving Amazon, he set up The Listing People, an all-in-one Amazon agency that advises businesses ranging from start-ups to multiple national brands on how to leverage Amazon in order to maximise sales.

George moved to Australia in June 2018, in response to Amazon launching in the country, with the aim of helping businesses and entrepreneurs launch successfully on Amazon Australia.
