I can tell you that James is a great guy.

Very smart and talented. We are both in the same Skype group and while I am not sharing much in the group myself ( busy, busy, busy )... I like to snoop in on the convo's when I can.

Hey @James Amazio I love your blog as well. I currently use your competition, but am going to make the switch to Feedbackz...Do you have any current promo codes or specials you offer?

I also would like to be part of the Skype group if your accepting!

Thanks!

@ddall @michael @bizzle - hmm... I can't seem to locate the person who runs it. Well their Fastlane username at least.. it's different on Skype so I never correlated. I think there's a minimum amount of revenue a month to join.. but I'll check.

I'm gonna be on a live interview tonight at 8:45pm central with Jake Robinson's webinar/hangout. No sales push, no pitches, etc. Just a chit chat hangout about what I'm doing, where I'm at, and the future in Amazon FBA.

http://app.webinarjam.net/register/480/3ff7c3107a if you want access. See you guys!


Oh.. and I don't ever think I updated, but I posted the Suspension from FBA story on the blog as well: http://www.feedbackz.com/blog/amazon-horror-story-how-suspension-crashed-my-sales-from-50k-to-zero/

Hey man. Just a thought. I'm only to the 2nd blog post where Amazon did you dirty, but I have an idea that may prevent that from happening again.

Register a domain with your brand, and sell from there as well as Amazon. In the About Us section and Contact Section they can clearly see that you own the brand and are selling from your website.

Unless you believe that they are stealing your product idea and profiting off of it. In which case I say....I wouldnt put it past em.

#1 bump this thread

#2 Funny how things come around. @James A Sorry I never saw this thread, I read less these days and I never got a notification that you tagged me in the second post.

Anyway fast forward to today and I got an automated email from amazon that was from another member here. (he can name himself just in case he wants to be anon) I messaged him on facebook saying the email looked incredible and asking what it was.... he sent me here. The emails look great. I have not signed up yet, but I may be here soon.

I don't know if you were originally looking for feedback on the app or the UI on the landing page or what. But let me know if you are still looking for it.

For sure... I think; it was something to do with my listing details. Something Amazon didn't like, and not necessarily it being a legitimate brand/private label.

Just launched out Feedbackz 2.0.. going to write an in-depth post and video on it.

In addition; I also launched a Live Public Inter-active Demo of Feedbackz so people can feel/use/play with it without having to create an account and hook it up to their Amazon.

Oh... and also after some hard hours; pumped out this article. I think it's a must read if you are trying to rank your Amazon product:

Excellent article

Moving to GOLD for execution... site looks fantastic, nice value proposition, and getting results. (And you coded it most yourself through self-taught education).

Kudos to you brother.

Hi James

I have read your history... my question is... why with your level of income 50k you do not open your own platform? I know the hard that is lose your business because Google or other of big players kill your business

I think that you can drive your customers of amazon to your website right?
For example you can add in your label to the url of your website and incentive to the customers to visit your website
I have talk with amazon and if you sell in your website using FBA you can get the data of buyer and you will make more money because you don´t pay commission (I lost here around 5 USD of price of sale only to sell in amazon.com)

There are many things you have to factor in. Cost of advertising to drive customers to your own site, SEO, dev costs, maintenance costs, fulfilment etc. Also the fact that Amazon is so automated and hands-off disincentives people to move off their platform.

Great work dude!

Just happened to stumble across your thread today and I'm about to dive into your blog post after I rap this up.

My cousin and I have been selling on Amazon for the last 2 months and are using Feedback Genius but I'm going to give your platform a shot.

Bout to dive into your 35 Ranking tips article :D

Just got all of my campaigns switched over and running. Do you have a recommendation for what time the emails go out? I was wondering if any customers had commented that a certain time converts better than others.

Hi James,

I'm in the process of switching over to your service from FB5!

Can I ask technical questions here, or should I PM you?
