Share your success story with Amazon (Free PR!)
Something I don’t recall seeing for several years on Amazon are customer testimonials. They’ve just published an interesting story of how Callum Bush went from a disillusioned mobile phone store employee to building his MediaDevil business and winning a string of awards including UKTI’s Business Innovation Award.
Callum has built his business on the Amazon UK Marketplace and his feedback is 4.9 stars over the past 12 months with 11,458 ratings. He only launched the business in the summer of 2009 but now sells on Amazon in the UK, Italy, Germany and the US; uses Amazon Product Ads in the UK and Fulfilment by Amazon in the US and Germany to dispatch orders and provide customer service on behalf of Mediadevil. The business has offices in London and Milan, with plans for a North American regional headquarters next.
Callum’s top tips are tips “to only offer a product or service that you are truly passionate about, and to provide the experience that you would hope to receive”.
You can read the full story of MediaDevil on Amazon, but more importantly if you’ve built a successful business on Amazon, they’d like to hear from you. As well as the obvious, helping Amazon, you’ll also get some free PR if your story is published which is pretty much guaranteed to drive views to your products on Amazon, if not sales as well. It’ll also give you a nice Google friendly link from the Amazon Seller Support blog which also can’t do you any harm.
If you do get your seller success story published by Amazon let us know, we’ll highlight your success on Tamebay too.
