As the creator, administrator and at the moment still chief moderator of a free Facebook group for Amazon sellers, I see a lot of questions get asked there. Obviously I’m flattered that people use the group and trust us to deliver some answers. As a member of other groups I also see this in other peoples groups.
What gives me pause for thought is when I see certain types of questions being asked there which to me are simply too critical to your business or too technical for you to be trusting some random people on the Internet with.
In this episode, I outline some areas of your ecommerce business which I believe you should NOT seek advice for among amateur or beginner sellers. The only exceptions come from groups of highly experienced sellers (by which I mean those doing at least half a million USD a year or equivalent).
If you are doing at least $500K USD/Euros or GBP equivalent a year in Amazon private label or custom product sales, and you need a small, intensive peer group, check out our 10K Collective Mastermind, now in its 4th year.

- What are expert-only questions
- How to make best use of expert peers (hint – it’s often about Who not How)
- When it’s worth spending money for advice.
