If you want insight into what works and doesn’t work, then I highly encourage you to listen to my fascinating interview with James Thomson, a partner at Buy Box Experts, a managed service agency supporting brands selling online. James is the former business head of Amazon Services, the division of Amazon responsible for recruiting tens of thousands of sellers annually to the Amazon marketplace. James also served as the first Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) account manager. In 2015, James Cofounded the Prosper Show, a continuing education conference for large Amazon sellers. In 2017, he published the book, The Amazon Marketplace Dilemma designed for brand executives seeking to optimize the distribution strategy on the Amazon marketplace.
