Hot Tip for Small Business Owners

If you are Small Business Owner, you should be taking advantage of the savings Amazon offers through their Business Buying Program.

You have access to negotiated pricing, tax savings, group buying, separate accounts, and more.

Enhancing your Business profile in Seller Central is great way to attract additional targeted visitors to your listings.

Amazon is actively promoting this program as they seek to gain more ground in the office supplies marketplace, as well as with government contracts.

That serves to benefit Sellers because of the focus and awareness Amazon is bringing to the program.

How to Fix Problems with Your Amazon Account

The Honest Company did exactly what Amazon expects sellers to do.

They took ownership of problem and took immediate action along with offering a sincere apology.

They investigated to determine the root cause, and implemented protective measures.

They improved production quality and and cleaning methods.

They created a system to identify and track the affected products and gave consumers a way to look up batch codes.

By communicating directly, transparently, and effectively with their customers, they helped provide peace of mind.

Their approach to the problem strengthens consumer confidence in the brand and is indicative of their care and commitment to quality.

Can Your Company Survive Brand Gate 2.0?

One of the biggest risks we face as Amazon sellers is the way Amazon controls which products we can and can’t sell. We are on the cusp of being impacted by their efforts to drive quality and protect the consumer through their major change, dubbed Brand Gate 2.0. This initiative merges Brand Gating with Brand Registry functions to significantly restrict which sellers can sell which products. We suspect the changes rolling out this month will also impact the way the IP Rights Holder complaints will be handled.

Do you need to learn more about Brand Gating and Brand Registry? Are you wondering if these potential changes will apply to you? Listen to this recent podcast on the subject between Scott Margolius and Robyn Johnson. It provides some background.
