After over 10 years working in the IT industry, I wanted to try out something on my own and give my inner entrepreneur a chance to shine. I started my first online business 3 years ago. We started by selling one product and quickly grew to over 50 SKUs. We started selling on Amazon as it was the largest e-commerce platform at the moment. We hit about £500K in sales in our first year of trade. I have been selling on Amazon for more than 2 years now and am well versed with requirements to start selling and be successful on Amazon. We frequently get the Amazon’s Choice badge on a lot of our products. We get invited to a lot of promotional deals by Amazon as well.
