Starting an Amazon business can be exciting, but as with many new and exciting things, the honeymoon period eventually comes to an end. Your excitement soon turns into fear and uncertainty, and you begin to run into the same pitfalls and issues that many people do when they are starting out. But, by learning from the mistakes of those who are further along on their journey, you can avoid the bumps and stay on the path to success.
On today’s episode, we break down our top 5 dos and don’ts for Amazon beginners and bonus tips specifically for retail arbitrage. We discuss the importance of following Amazon’s policies to avoid suspension and how to properly process and ship your inventory. We also explain why you need to avoid shiny object syndrome and how to stay focused on your business as well as eight great tips specifically for making your retail arbitrage process more efficient and profitable.
