How Two Intrepid Wellington Entrepreneurs Quickly Made $7 million in Sales on Amazon and What Amazon Coming to Australia Could Mean For Your Business

Amazon is the biggest online marketplace in the western world. It dominates in the USA, UK and Europe and now it's coming to our back door step and setting up in Australia. What impact will this move have on your business?

Exporters are starting to realise the importance of e-commerce channels as a faster and often, more cost effective way to reach new markets. There are many options to choose from, so why might Amazon be the ideal choice for your business?

The presenters Sophie Howard and Hamish Conway from Sell Global have experienced the ups and downs of selling on Amazon, from scary New York Law Firm letters to selling an Amazon product business for 7 figures inside 2 years.

Here's some of what you'll discover in this action packed presentation.

How Amazon compares to other ecommerce channels and why buyers flock to the platform. How Amazon fulfilment works around the world for sellers on the platform and why it's perfect for scaling fast.

The product criteria to use to spot future best sellers and avoid the toughest competition.
Does being New Zealand made make any difference when selling online in export markets?

Join us to hear from these two experts on the Amazon marketplace.

Hamish Conway is a former Ernst & Young, Entrepreneur of the Year category winner. He has worked closely with over 200 New Zealand businesses to help them market and sell their products and services. This unique perspective of seeing the true inside workings of so many businesses has honed his ability to spot growth opportunities.

From running his own 7 figure Amazon business in North America and UK and Europe, plus helping numerous New Zealand brands on the same platform, he is perfectly set to help New Zealand companies looking to successfully launch their products into the USA, UK, Europe and soon to be Australia.

Sophie Howard has worked in high tech start-ups, foreign policy, and international business development for the New Zealand Government. This background is an ideal mix to help other New Zealand businesses launch on the international stage. Sophie has developed and launched her own line of premium branded products made with New Zealand materials.

After her spectacular success including a 7-figure exit inside 2 years, she also coaches clients from around the world on Amazon. She also has a membership group called Product University helping people with creating and launching brands online.
