“For anyone who wants to get selling on Amazon, I would say the most important thing is your mindset. You have to be certain that this is what you want to do with your life. It’s not just a hobby–it’s a way of life. And the people that I’ve seen that are the most successful are the people that really enjoy it.”

Gil Lang, Managing Partner of Commerce&

“A #1 tip nowadays would be to get some money. You’re not going to start with just a few thousand; you’re going to need some more if you’re going to build something really stable. Get your money ready and also watch your cash flow.”

Fernando Cruz, Founder of Seller Tradecraft

“Knowing your numbers. So really calculating your ROI and your contribution margin or your gross margin after ads. I think a lot of sellers really focus on revenue, which is great, but their take-home [profit] may be really slim. In a business where it’s really cash-intensive, just general consumer products, you really want to focus on those high ROI items.”
