If you’re a manufacturer, drop-shipper or e-commerce store looking to sell on Amazon, we can help you get your products listed and ranking. Most businesses that have e-commerce sites and sell directly to their consumers online have not yet taken full advantage of the opportunity to sell their products through major online e-commerce outlets such as Amazon. Utilizing online outlets such as Amazon can be a great way to increase sales and boost profits, all while keeping your costs marginally low.
Amazon Consulting Services
As a small boutique operation, we tend to work with clients who have a small slate of products, especially when product uploads or optimization is required, with 10-15 SKU’s (including variations) being the ideal target. For larger clients, we provide consulting services for specific ASIN issues, integration issues, seller account health, automated product & seller feedback setup, optimization strategy and training as well as brand enforcement strategy and solutions.
Amazon Services we Offer
These are the three most common scenarios we typically assist clients with that create the greatest advantage to the brand and result in the greatest increase in sales and investment.
1. New Product/New Seller
Account setup, product optimization, product upload and product launch
2. Existing Seller/Existing Product
Product Optimization, Seller Account Health, Training and Strategy
3. New Seller/Existing Product
New account setup, regain control of existing listings, product optimization and brand enhancement.
Our specialty and one of our favorite scenarios is helping brand owners reclaim their listings, especially when the current listings contain duplicates and require optimization.
Our Collaborative Approach
We believe in a highly collaborative approach when it comes to working with our clients. We operate under the philosophy that no one knows your product as well as you do and when combined with our experience and knowledge of Amazon we can create dynamic listings that not only describe your product accurately resulting in higher customer satisfaction, but also have the ability to organically rank for the highest searched relevant SEO Keyword terms.

Rates & Fees
We charge an initial minimum retainer of $1,500 for most Amazon consulting services. All services are billed at an hourly rate of $250 per hour. Work is then deducted from the initial retainer until it is met. Continued work is then billed at the hourly rate and invoiced monthly.
Amazon Consulting is charged at an hourly rate instead of a project scope as there are almost always unknowns and additional unforeseen needs that may be requested by the client. Our rates and services are based on the value added for the brand: optimizing for increased sales short and long-term, ability to list and launch products quickly with best practices and keeping seller account in line with Amazon policy to avoid unnecessary account suspension.
We have years of success stories and satisfied clients. Contact us today and let us know how we can help you increase sales and expand your business!
Marketplace Seller Courses has been helping us with our large Amazon account. They have been very professional, quick to reply, and always willing to help. Their assistance has greatly improved our Amazon success.
As others have written, they are very easy to communicate with and understand what we need help with. I referred them to a business associate and they have been successfully assisting them with their Amazon account as well. I highly recommend Marketplace Seller Courses.
