What if we told you there’s an easier, faster, and more enjoyable way for Amazon sellers to keep up with industry news and trends? There is. It’s called podcasts.
Podcasts offer the same (or similar) content that you’d find in books and blogs, the only difference is that this information is delivered in an audio format as opposed to a visual format. The advantage, of course, is that you can listen while you get ready in the morning, while you drive, while you eat, etc. For the busy entrepreneur, it’s a more pleasant and efficient way to learn.
Below you’ll find a list of the best podcasts for Amazon sellers, along with a short blurb about each to help you decide which program to tune into.
