Here at Global From Asia we talk a lot about Amazon FBA when it comes to e-commerce – because it has literally taken over the market the last few years. But we try our best to also recommend to take action on diversifying. Sure, other Amazon marketplaces in international markets are one – or – a completely new channel.
And that is what we are talking about today – how to triple your sales by looking to international markets.

Thank you for sharing Tommaso Tamburnotti – I hope we have some listeners taking action and making moves globally. As an Amazon FBA seller myself now – I also try to think how to diversify. But on calls with clients I also try to say – sure – Amazon is the elephant in the room – but leverage it (Meir tip) and build up your brand – but go to multiple channels – whether that is more marketplaces or totally new countries.
