Needless to say, at Tamebay we talk to loads of ecommerce sellers and suppliers every week. It could be a big seller operating out of a warehouse, stuffed with products, or a small time seller managing a business from the spare room. We also talk to all sorts of people in the ecosystem too, from shipping companies to web designers. Royal Mail to start-ups at the kitchen table. There’s such a lot to consider.
(Actually, it’s not impossible to run a million pound turnover enterprise from a garage if you’re smart. I’ve met a few people doing that. Ecommerce scale doesn’t mean you need to have a massive warehouse to grow, using services such as fulfilment and FBA means you can make very decent sales without looking after the stock yourself.)
But you do need to be clever. There really isn’t any problem in ecommerce that can’t be solved and people are out there to help. That’s one of the reasons why we publish the Tamebay Guide. It’s a gazetteer of useful suppliers and solutions to help you solve all those daily problems you face.
Perhaps you can alert Tamebay and other readers to a brilliant supplier we just don’t know about that saves you many person hours a week or makes your life as a retailer immeasurably easier? Whether it’s related to shipping, inventory or marketing, who is rocking your world?
In particular we’d love to hear about consultants and specialists who can help sellers develop Amazon sales. We get asked about that a lot and there’s a real need and demand there. VAT and tax help when selling in Europe too is a lively topic and need. Who’s good in that field?
So do a pal a favour, and let your fellow Tamebay readers know about the little tricks, tips and tools that you use to make your daily activities easier. What is your daily lifesaver? Comments are most welcome or drop us a note.
