As a new Amazon seller, you may feel as if you’re on your own, with no-one to talk to and no one to contact when you need support. Where do you turn when you need someone to brainstorm and bounce your ideas? How to take the next step in your business?


Today, we explain what finding support for e-commerce means and how you can accelerate your Amazon business by building relationships. We explain how talking with other Amazon sellers can impact your business and highlight how to build trust and respect. We share where you can meet with people to build e-commerce relationships and a step-by-step strategy you can use to overcome your first-contact fears. We also share why it is vital to build relationships with vendors and how you can develop beneficial relationships with reps.
