GCommerce Inc. has announced a four-part series of webinars intended to educate aftermarket decision-makers about what’s real and what’s possible in selling to and through marketplace channels. Beginning at 2 p.m. EDT on April 16, the first webinar, “Amazon: Learn to Survive and Thrive,” will feature former Amazon Vendor Manager, Alan Adams, who will discuss the insider tips for clearing the hurdles in doing business on the Amazon platform.
Adams is the founder and CEO of Navazon Consulting, a practice devoted to helping vendors navigate the increasingly automated and hands-off world of Amazon. When Amazon stopped placing orders to companies in the past month, CNBC asked Navazon for input.
In announcing the webinar series, Jon Sinclair, vice president for eCommerce at GCommerce said, “The curiosity among our customers about marketplace selling is off the charts. And the access to subject matter experts and candid business information is extremely limited. GCommerce believes that better informed decision-makers will choose the e-commerce strategies that are most appropriate for their business and reach new heights.”
Sinclair explained, “Our Amazon tour guide is Alan Adams, founder and CEO of Navazon Consulting. Alan and the Navazon team host two-day learning seminars at their Seattle headquarters that cover a wide variety of topics, all aimed at increasing your ability to grow your business on Amazon. The seminars provide best practices for conducting business with Amazon and effectively train your employees how to work with Amazon.”
Prior to founding Navazon, Adams was a senior category manager at Amazon.comfor four years. He managed a $320 million Amazon business, working with nearly 800 vendors. He also built the first two-week training program for new Amazon retail employees and led negotiations.
Future scheduled webinars include:
May – eBay: Master The Largest Marketplace For Auto Parts;
June – Walmart, Google, and More – The New Frontier; and
July – eCommerce Fulfillment – Why, How and Who?
