This is the 18th July 2017 weekly update of what I have been working on in my online businesses and the plans for the future.
A lot of effect has gone in to Amazon Sponsored Products (AKA PPC) advertising as I try to sell as many units as possible before Amazon’s long-term storage fees kick in next month.
I have spent £1000 in about 2 weeks and managed to sell 330 of my target products, plus 216 of another I was using PPC for. So about 550 units in total from this PPC campaign (this includes organic sales too but I was only sell 1 or 2 a day of these products prior to PPC).
I have also had a meeting with my SEO agency about work on my e-Commerce website. I have agreed to let them deliver what they promised and then I will stop all work and look to plan and project manage it myself.
On this I plan to create really high quality content on my website(s) around specific keywords and then use Guest Blogging to drive backlinks to this content. This will hopefully rank these keyword rich bits of content and drive lots of targeted traffic.
Finally myself and my business partner have been honing in on exactly what our Amazon Japan services business is offering. We have done this so hopefully this will kick off very soon and get us paying customers who will also turn in to long term clients.
