#017 Wizards of Amazon Podcast: Knowing Your Numbers in Your Amazon Business with Vladi Gordon from SellerBoard

Play
Read more

Despite having an interesting introduction to online selling through Amazon, Vladi Gordon learned the ropes quickly and realized there was a huge gap in seller support tools. Vladi started his online selling business with a unicorn of ideas that just happened to work due to timing and strategic placement. It was only after he started to expand that he realized the amount of work that goes into having an online business.

It wasn’t until Vladi started realizing how many hidden fees there were while doing business that he noticed there weren’t many tools out there to support Amazon sellers with their numbers. As I like to say, you can’t scale what you can’t measure and if your numbers are a mystery, then how do you do business.

Vladi set to work creating a tool that would help identify, categorize, and sort all of the numbers in your seller portal into easy to read reports. Everything down to the cost of shipping and the refunds due because of FBA errors. Because he wants every Amazon seller to benefit, he made the price insanely affordable and continues to support sellers of all sizes.

I am passionate about this tool because I wish I’d had it when I was first starting my business. Listen in as Vladi describes the tool, who it’s for, how it helps, and why you should invest early in your business to set everything up properly. Plus if my review and his detailed description of what the tool offers aren’t enough, Vladi is giving WOA listeners 2-months free! See the link below.

You know everybody talks about these ones, but actually Amazon has like I counted more than 70 types of different fees. And you can see them all in your

Steve: You are listening to Episode Number 87 of the Awesomers podcast series. And for those keeping score home just run on over to Awesomers.com/87 and you'll find today's show notes, details and even some links that we talked about. With today's featured guest, coming back to us for part two of three is Vladi Gordon. And we talked to Vladi about some of the important things that I think a lot of times entrepreneurs overlook and that’s these profit killers as Vladi calls them. I sometimes call them black holes or other fun titles because any time you don't know where the money is going it can be a very destructive situation in your business. So it's really important to get that financial house in order. And I know, if you're anything like me that doing the financials and doing the bookkeeping that's kind of like, “ I'll get to it when I get to it” or maybe you've even hired somebody and you’re like yes, they’ve got the monkey, I don't really want to interface with it that much. I started out like that. I can assure you it certainly is not something that I would recommend. Don't find yourself scared about finance and your lack of understanding can be overcome. It's something that you can absolutely solve and we talk about that a lot in today's episode, looking for some of those profit killers. Go ahead and jump into this episode and learn some more about how to get your business running right.

Steve: Okay here we are back again everybody on Awesomers.com podcast with Vladi Gordon.
