On the episode I bring in Dan Ashburn and Adam Heist to discuss some of our views and observations on the changes over the last few years.
A lot of seller at the top of search have sold, whilst a good chunk come back as sellers, and some as service providers over time… And with the higher walls built around selling on Amazon, is there a shift in volume; of new people coming through? Sometimes, in our community we forget we are in an echo chamber. Of course, there will be plenty of sellers that do not engage directly within and some do not even know it is there as they do not listen to podcasts, Facebook groups or attend networking events.
Adam “Heist” Runquist first discovered the Amazon marketplace 4 years ago after being on the executive team of a leading outdoor products brand. After taking that business from 8 to 9 figures – and discovering the power of marketplace channels and physical products brands in the process – Adam has since started, sold and invested in multiple Amazon native brands. In addition to leading and launching his own brands, Adam runs the YouTube Channel “Adam Heist” and is an investor and advisor to Amazon aggregator D1 Brands (who just raised $123M).
Dan and his industry-leading team are responsible for delivering 8-figures in annual sales on Amazon. Operating in online marketing for 17 years, Dan is an international speaker, advisor and co-founder of Titan Network.
