How to Make Your Amazon Business Less of an Emotional Roller Coaster

by Becky Trowbridge, on November 16, 2017

Sometimes managing your Amazon business can feel like a ride on The Beast at Kings Island or Verbolten at Busch Gardens. The ups and downs of keeping items in stock, reputation management, repricing and other important seller tasks can leave you with a sore neck and back, much like the physical roller coaster.

As an eCommerce merchant, you're never going to be able to get off the roller coaster. However, having the right tools can make the ride a heck of a lot smoother!

Your Emotions Can Get the Best of You

Have you ever tried to restock an item that you loved, only to find that it no longer sold well due to changing trends or new competition? Being stuck with long-term storage fees for a product that just isn’t moving is a bummer. Researching products manually takes hours, and it can be difficult to remove your personal feelings about an item from the process.

Maybe you find that sending hundreds of seller feedback and product review requests manually takes too much of your time. You know that it’s important to get these ratings, but you just get so tired of sending message after message with few responses.

Setting prices for your products is another area where emotions can keep you on the roller coaster. Do you want your product to sell for a higher price than it might be worth? Conversely, are you undervaluing your item or afraid to price higher?

Automation Helps

What’s the best way to keep your feelings from getting in the way of smart business decisions?
