I’m proud to say, I’m now a six figure annual Amazon seller.
Hi. My name is Claire McClain, and I joined Sophie’s course back in 2016. At the time, I was working full-time as a project manager, I was bringing up my seven-year-old son, and I had been running my own Amazon business for about a year.
Working my Amazon business parallel to my job, at the time, seemed the sensible thing to do. It was about me trying to improve the process, test out my product ideas, and try and turn a profit before I did the big launch and turned it into a full-time career.
Sophie’s course is the only Amazon course that I have ever paid for, and, to be honest, I wish I’d found it sooner. It would have really helped me shortcut my setting-up process. I would have fast-tracked a lot of time and effort learning basics – how to write a good listing, how to hunt down and narrow your keywords. It would’ve been helpful when it came to finding suppliers and shipping, and, most importantly, it gave me confidence in my product ideas as well.
To be honest, I had no intention of paying for an Amazon course. There’s loads of material out on the market, which is free, and that’s what I used initially to help me build my knowledge. But I was caught with Sophie’s advertising and her very sensible approach to product sourcing, her very down-to-earth personality, and also, most importantly, her willingness to share her story and all the ups and downs of her own journey. It really hooked me in and to be honest, I haven’t been disappointed.
In my view, there’s nothing quite like it out on the market. Some of the material, in particular, goes way beyond just how to run your Amazon business, and I feel like I have benefited from being educated in all sorts of entrepreneurial and small business skills.
I love, love the amazing community, and, through this community, I’ve built up lots of friends. We get together in the UK, and we share ideas. We do feel like we belong, and you’ve got a group of people that are there to help you.
My confidence since joining the course has just grown and grown, and I’m now proud to say that I’m an annual six-figure Amazon seller. Also, inspired further by Sophie’s teachings and her sense of “go do it,” I’ve also gone on to build a second business. That’s to support UK handmade businesses, sell on Amazon Handmade, a new category within Amazon.
So if you’re looking to be confident in your Amazon business and you’re looking for a course that takes you on an entrepreneur’s adventure, as well as just giving you the information that you would get in an Amazon manual, then this is definitely the right course for you, and I can recommend it.
