E241: How to Build a Successful Ecommerce Business Beyond AmazonApril 18, 2019 in Ecom-Crew-Podcast
From a Dublin-based seller, we now have an Under the Hood guest from the UK. Jamie Graham is a Premium member. I met him in person at the Million Dollar Sellers meetup in Cancun last year. He and his wife Kayleigh own a beauty brand that’s bringing over a million pounds in revenue, with a 30-40 percent growth rate.
In this episode, the majority of the discussion was focused on these three points.
- Figure out how to build a ‘real’ business that’s not reliant on him and his wife
- Developing a top-level hire
- Working with a sourcing agent
Jamie and I also went over how he was able to implement the principles discussed in the book Traction. It’s an excellent read, especially if you’re on the process of growing and organizing your ecommerce business.
Check out the full episode. I’m looking forward to hearing back from Jamie over the next couple of months. With a growing business and a new baby, he’ll definitely be having his hands full.
Under the Hood is a segment where we do an hour-long coaching call with one of our listeners. We take a look at their businesses, provide honest feedback, offer our best business advice, and answer whatever questions they have. In exchange for the free coaching, we will turn the call into a podcast episode so that our community can benefit as well. It’s a win-win!
