Check out my latest newsletter about building an Amazon e-commerce business and organic reach on Linkedin.
|Amazon Shareholder Letter|
|The wealthiest people in the world write best the shareholder letters. This includes Buffett, Gates, and Bezos. This is not a coincidence. You can learn so much from each billionaire after reading only a few pages.|
This week I read Amazon’s shareholder letter. Bezos spoke mostly about the rise of independent third-party sellers. These sellers are now taking over.
Several years ago, I launched an Amazon retail business as a side project and quickly sold +$30k in products in less than four months. The platform is too easy to use.
I recommend checking out sites like JungleScout to learn more [Happy to help anyone thinking about launching an e-commerce business].
*Bezos always includes his shareholder letter from 1997 at the bottom. Definitely recommend checking it out. Amazon’s mission continues to be the same after so many years.
|Organic Reach on Linkedin|
|Networking is evolving and now lives online. Social media allows you to connect with anyone at any time. |
Linkedin is the most underutilized social network today. With over 500 million users, only 3 million users share content weekly. This is unbelievable!!
This professional network has the most valuable user base in the world.
Think about the last time you went to a networking event and met a total stranger. Have you tried that online? If not, your professional network will always lag behind someone building their online brand.
I recommend reading Gary Vaynerchuk’s Content Model to learn how you can produce high-quality content at scale. I’ve been using his techniques since December and watched my Linkedin network triple in size. Deal flow and investor interest have increased proportionately as well.
