    Do Amazon Marketplace sellers need outside help?

    However, after 16 years as an Amazon Solution Provider for manufacturers, distributors, and merchants, we find that in all cases unless the company has a staff that is 100% focused on Amazon.com, everyone needs help. In practice, Amazon does not normally let you know when they're going to make a right turn or a left turn. They simply do it. We think that having connections into people that work inside of Amazon, is a big plus. This is why we have nurtured our relationship with Amazon for a very long time, and can find ways to get things done through these relationships. We encourage all sellers who have a desire to work with Amazon to find a resource that actually has the practical experience to guide them. It is not that it's necessary, it's vital. And VET Them. No matter what you read, no matter what people tell you, you can find a place to work with Amazon, but leverage what they can provide to you in the best possible way for YOUR company. As an example, there is a particular product profile that Amazon is attracted to better than others, but what they told us 16 years ago that has not changed much today is, find us the unusual, the unique, the different, and we will expose it to the world, which basically is what they have done. But, there are tips, pathways, and people that can assure a much better outcome than trying to make a go of it yourself. So, as an Amazon Marketplace Seller you do need outside help.
