What is the best way to respond to damaged products?
As you build up your ecommerce business, you’ve got to be prepared to deal with the inevitable, damaged products. Do you have a plan in place of how you will respond when you hear from a customer that their product arrived damaged? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott goes over the best way to respond that can turn a bad situation into a great opportunity to expand your brand's positive reputation. It may sound counterintuitive, but Scott recommends responding to that customer with a replacement item and a full refund. When you take this extra step, you communicate to your customer that you care about their experience and their satisfaction. To hear Scott go further with how you should respond to this type of situation, make sure to catch this episode!
Is it a good idea to wholesale someone else’s products?
As you’ve heard Scott say before, a great way to get started selling on Amazon is to partner with another business or individual who has a product that they don’t sell online yet. However, is it a good idea to put all of your eggs in that basket? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott encourages a seller like you to proceed with a similar business partnership but to quickly start building up their own brand. The reason for this advice is because you never know how long that partnership will last. Don’t assume that a good business arrangement will last forever! Hear more from Scott on this topic and others on this fascinating episode!
