Galyna Parker is one of the founding members of the Wizards of Amazon Meetup group! She has been in e-Commerce for over 10 years and she recently started selling white label products without the hassle of finding her own manufacturers. Listen in as she shares how she got started in e-Commerce, what prompted her to look into vendors rather than manufacturers, and how that has translated into creating her own specially branded products.
It all started when Galyna sought to have her own specialized color for one of the products she was selling. She reached out to the vendor that she was receiving the product from and asked if they could get it in her color and then sign off on that color so that no one else could sell it. They said yes and she has been selling that same product for more than three years.
Fast-forward to today and she has been sourcing products through vendors rather than going direct to manufacturers because the customer service has been great and the time she saves is enormous. They take a lot of the work out of her Amazon selling business.
Listen in as she delves into why she prefers this route, what she recommends as the first place to get started, and how you can take measures to protect yourself from the sharks on Amazon. Learn how you can create a private label product without the extra hassle!
