I am normally not a big fan of Amazon courses, as there is a big misconception around them. I believe a lot of people will buy a course as it will tell them it is a guaranteed way of making money. They often even advertise with bullshit like:
“I bought a lambo with working only 4 hours a week. Buy my course so you can do the same”.
This is obviously not the case and often these type of courses are very low quality.
Amazon is a real business that requires hard work. There are no shortcuts!
I think an Amazon course should be viewed as an information source, not as some kind of magic money making button. If you can find the right Amazon you will find it very valuable
I have been selling on Amazon for about 4 years now. And always kinda thought that I knew everything about Amazon FBA. Until I came across this course: Freedom Ticket
What is Freedom Ticket (Helium 10)?
The course is divided per week. And each weeks has multiple topics which are covered in around 20 minute video’s.
After completing a video your progress will be tracked so you know exactly where you are!
Freedom Ticket Review
I was amazed by how much content they managed to put in the course! From setting up your Amazon Seller Central account to some very advanced advertising methods. They have covered every single step.
If you are a new seller you can start right at the beginning and Kevin will teach you everything you need to know about selling on Amazon.
If you are an experienced seller you can skip to the more interesting topics on which you would like to know more of. For myself I always though I knew pretty much everything about selling on Amazon. However, I was very wrong! I decided to take a look at: Week 6 – How to Compete & Win Big. And there is so much stuff in there that I didn’t know yet. I feel like I now have a much better understanding of how the Amazon A9 search engines works, what ranking factors matter the most and how I can use this in my own listings to my advantage! Can’t wait to put what I have learned to action!
Is the Freedom Ticket the right course me for?
I think this 100% depends on how much you are willing to put into it. This is not some course that will teach your a secret method that will get your rich overnight. What it will teach you is everything you need to know about selling on Amazon!
So yeah, if you are willing to do all the research. Watch all the video’s on the topics you are unfamiliar with ( there is over 21 hours of content! ) and then willing to put what you have learned into action. Then yes, I think this is the best available course out there that will be an excellent guidebook for selling on Amazon.
