Amazon is one of the most widely-known household names for online shopping these days. That’s why more and more entrepreneurs are hoping to enter this trillion-dollar platform. This week, Nick and Samuel Cohen, CEO of Amazon Consulting Experts (ACE) will bring different perspectives and insights into your journey to becoming an Amazon Legend! ACE offers a comprehensive service for current and future online sellers. Samuel and his team help their clients in various areas of the business such as shipping, storing, marketing, bookkeeping, and much more. In this episode, Samuel shares how ACE can help you strengthen the pillars of your business- sourcing, inventory, and pricing.
Entering Amazon as a seller is already a rigorous process, but re-entering the platform after an account suspension comes with even more difficulty. Listen in as Nick and Samuel help you create a concrete Plan of Action if your selling privileges have been removed. Being an entrepreneur is a very rewarding experience when you play it the right way. Learn how to work ON your business as opposed to working IN it.

Meet Your Guest!
Amazon Consulting Experts is the brainchild of Sam E. Cohen, an e-commerce professional with over two decades of leadership experience at major electronics companies. After years working for large corporations, Sam sensed an opportunity in 2009 during the depths of the Great Recession.
Sam realized that the corporate downsizing he was seeing unfold wasn’t an anomaly, it was the beginning of a new future.
At the same time, he knew it was easier than ever for people to start their own business, especially online through partnerships with Amazon.
The dream of financial freedom—of being your own boss, of having more time, of reaping the rewards of your own hard work—was finally achievable on a massive scale.
Sam took the plunge and began learning everything about selling on Amazon.
While helpful videos, websites, and discussion groups existed, he was surprised by the lack of a comprehensive online resource for sellers.
Amazon’s own FAQs provided basic information but little in the way of strategic insights.
Through years of trial and error, Sam built his business into an online powerhouse: he’s now in the top 1% of Amazon sellers worldwide with annual sales of over $20M.
For some, such success would be enough, however, Sam has always had a strong desire to give back.
He knew he could help others learn from his experience.
Thus Amazon Consulting Experts was born — ACE.
