    Ep 69 - Kristina Mertens - Avoid Scams & Hire Killer Contractors to Grow your Amazon Sales

    Ep 69 - Kristina Mertens - Avoid Scams & Hire Killer Contractors to Grow your Amazon Sales

    Kristina Mertens is an expert on hiring Amazon FBA related freelancers and agencies with her experience at Sermondo, a platform that connects brands with Amazon FBA talent.

    She shares her best tips on vetting companies, avoiding scams, and most effective ways of working with freelancers to get the most out of your investment.

    Hiring & delegating is definitely a skillset and something that must be learned. For this reason I really recommend you start delegating at a small level much sooner than you want to to start gaining the skills you will desperately need as your business grows.

    Team is everything, there's only so much one person can do so don't fall into the solopreneur trap!

Kyle_Julian ,

A REAL Amazon Journey

There are so many online resources on How to become a successful seller on Amazon. The majority of these resources come from people that sell you a pipe dream on how easy it is to earn thousands of dollars per month with AMZ. Danny and Wilson tell you the good, the bad and the ugly on their journey. It is very cool to hear a real life perspective on what it truely takes to become a successful seller and some of the trying times that can come with selling on Amazon. Very nice podcast, fellas. Can't wait to hear what else you come up with,

Kramon Comeaux ,

These guys are the best

The content that Wilson and Danny share is shrewd and concise!! I can’t believe they are sharing these strategies for free!! Excellent information for beginners and Amazon veterans like myself. Keep up the great work. Can’t wait to see what you guys produce next. Highly recommended!!

ArtiomR ,
