E513: How Did Selling on Amazon Become So Expensive in 2023? 

Joining me today is the ever-insightful Bernie Thompson. Since his last appearance on the podcast in 2018, Bernie and I have met again recently at a few conferences which were put on pause because of COVID. 

I first met Bernie at The Global Sources Summit in Asia quite a number of years ago as a fellow guest speaker, and he’s been a good friend ever since. He’s one of the co-founders of PPC Ninja, and is also selling on Amazon.

In today’s episode, Bernie and I talk about how Amazon’s changed in terms of organic vs. sponsored products, how Amazon has become an advertising wall of products, and why we feel like black hat tactics don’t get punished enough.
