In a busy world, podcasts are a great way to collect a large amount of information on a subject in an easy to digest format. Ideal for when you’re on the move, a podcast is an episodic collection of digital audio or video files which can be downloaded and watched / listened to on laptops or mobile devices.
For the Amazon seller, podcasts are an invaluable tool for gaining advice and updates quickly and easily. In fact, Amazon seller podcasts are so popular that there are, literally, hundreds to choose from so we’ve put together the best 9 for Amazon private label sellers.
1. The Amazing seller
The Amazing $eller was created by Scott Voelker, owner of a portrait studio owner and entrepreneur. Spotting a gap in the market, Scott decided to create podcasts specifically for Amazon sellers in order to provide help and advice on topics such as keyword tracking, the best ways to source products and how to optimise your listings to increase sales. The podcasts which are updated every couple of days are available on the website and include information about Scott’s own journey and how he achieved success with Amazon selling. The podcast archive includes topics like, “Business Cashflow And When To Pay Yourself Profit,” “6 Tips To Grow Your Business Using Outsourcing” and “Failed Product Launch Using Email List And What To Do Next.” To listen to The Amazing Seller podcasts, click HERE.
