The enigma that is Amazon...
Updated: Oct 15
Hello and welcome to my blog! Seeing as this is the first post, let me introduce myself. My name is Sarah Scourfield, ex-Amazonian of just over 2 years. I worked in Strategic vendor services, which essentially means my job was to make businesses GROW on Amazon. I managed £40m+ of revenue at one time and achieved some pretty good results (average of +50% growth). So, I decided to share my knowledge and build my own Amazon agency!
It's been a bit of a whirl wind getting here, however. I left Amazon in October 2019 to run a business that my partner and I setup, DUO Bottles. We thought we were on the cusp of completing manufacturing, but unfortunately a few things went wrong and COVID-19 hit us hard, so it was time to start applying for jobs again! I was offered one, (it was actually to manage the Amazon account for multi-million pound company), but sadly, three days before I was due to start the offer was withdrawn. So, back to square one... If you've ever been unemployed you'll know it's a scary place to be, the uncertainty of not knowing where your next pay cheque is coming from isn't pleasant. I was trying pretty hard to find another job and reaching out to anyone that might be able to help. One of the people I turned to was my mentor, Ste. He owns a fantastic online retail store and also sells his products on Amazon. Not much attention had been given to their Amazon account, but at the peak of COVID-19, and everyone turning to shopping on Amazon, it soon became apparent just how important the giant retailer, Amazon, is. So, he asked me if I could manage the account for them. Since I've been working with them and we have seen phenomenal results (currently +977% YoY!) so they're a pretty happy client!
Fast forward to today I've now created a full fledged Amazon agency, called Unicorn Orange. The mission of Unicorn Orange is to grow your business on Amazon, without fees costing the earth! Unlike a lot of Agencies, there is also no monthly minimum revenue requirements on Amazon. Why? Because I get it. Owning a small product business myself I understand how difficult it is to get things off the ground and sometimes you need help, but don't always have the resources available. Amazon, especially, is a total enigma if you aren't familiar with it so I'm here to offer a helping hand, no matter the size of your business on Amazon.
