Today, I’m chatting with Chris Anderson from Superhero Sellers. Chris has been a significant contributor across several Amazon online communities and Facebook groups and has become one of the most respected people throughout our community.
Chris got started as an entrepreneur as a young teenager, when he owned his own lawncare business mowing lawns throughout his local community. He has experience in internet marketing and online selling on platforms such as eBay and Etsy before launching his Amazon business. He started on Amazon with the goal of pivoting from retail arbitrage to selling private-label products and although he is still not selling private-label items, he has grown an incredibly successful business through retail arbitrage.
Today, he shares his thoughts, tips, ideas, and insight with our amazing listeners; talking about everything from FBA fundamental tips for beginners through making good money on items you purchased at regular, retail prices.
