Introduction

Many people, at some point in their lives, decide to embrace the journey of starting their own business, whether it’s by offering services or products, and with the importance of Amazon in the consumer e-commerce world, it is no wonder that many entrepreneurs have decided, over the years, to launch their business and sell products on Amazon.

With the advent of Amazon FBA, founders can now access a worldwide platform connecting them with customers all over the world, and can focus their efforts on improving their products, their brand, their marketing, without having to think about warehousing or the logistics involved in the delivery of their goods.

Whether you are just curious about launching your first Amazon FBA brand, or you are a seasoned seller who launched multiple brands, guidance is always helpful – especially if it can be accessed at any time and from anywhere. Podcasts (for those unfamiliar: a recurring audio program that conveys knowledge as articles, trainings, debates, and more to its listening audience) are a great way to remain up to date with the latest trends and updates of what is happening in the space, or learn new skills.

We have collected below a comprehensive list of the best podcasts in the Amazon FBA and broader e-commerce space that we believe anyone can benefit from, regardless of their level of knowledge. We have collected them according to thematic areas where possible to highlight the most relevant content to those who are looking for specific-sector knowledge. Some podcasts on the other hand, are broader in scope, and cover a wider range of issues, topics, and the general level of conversation is, while insightful, less technical. We have collected these podcasts in their respective section below.

Broad-Scope Content

In this section we included those podcasts that, by variety of the topics covered, format of delivery, or scope of content, are distinct from all others focusing on specialized sector knowledge, specific aspects of a business, or tailored for a specific moment in one’s learning curve as an online seller. Some touch on a multitude of topics, from presenting operational and company specific insights to improve sales, to discussing with guests the latest industry trends and facts or answering direct questions from entrepreneurs. Others instead, are inspiring, and aim at empowering want-to-be-entrepreneurs, founders, and operators to unlock their potential and achieve their goals.

Beginners Content

This category is dedicated to podcasts that are beginner-oriented, catering to entrepreneurs who are taking their first steps in the Amazon and e-Commerce world, or to those that are thinking of taking their first steps but do not know where to begin. After all, the amount of information to be assimilated is significant, and can be intimidating. These programs aim at clarifying the main doubts and questions, educating on relevant topics, and training on best practices and processes that will set funders for success right from the start. These podcasts can be compared to a journey that the host takes its audience on, leveraging know-how, experience, guests, and other tools, to prepare the next generation of brand owners. If you are looking to set up your first Amazon storefront, product listing, or are unfamiliar with marketing techniques and PPC, these are for you.

Advanced Content

Not all content however, is created equal. Some sellers are deeper in their journey, have already set up their brands, stores, listings, and are trying to maximize efficiencies and sales. The skills needed to bring a company from 0 to 100, and the skill set needed to bring a company from 100 to 1000, are not necessarily the same. Previous Amazon FBA and D2C brand owners know this well, which is why a crucial part of an entrepreneur’s day is spent learning. For those who would benefit from more advanced, in depth, and specialized knowledge, we have prepared the list of podcasts below.
