Full-Time FBA Podcast Review

April 18, 2022

There is no such thing as passive income, but with the right strategy, Amazon FBA businesses can come quite close. The Full-Time FBA Show is designed to help you utilise secret industry tips and tricks, so you can turn part-time hours into a full-time income.

In 2011, host Stephen Smotherman found himself unemployed and divorced and needed to find a way to put food on the table for himself and his four children. Starting his own FBA business on Amazon allowed him to achieve financial freedom while still having the time to take care of his family. In later years, he remarried Rebecca, who joined the business, and together they took the business to new heights.

The podcast covers a range of topics and reseller strategies to help you achieve financial freedom, just like Stephen and Rebecca. You can also expect to hear from expert guests who occasionally join the podcast to share their stories of overcoming challenges and using an Amazon-based business model and strategies to become successful.

Podcast Episode 120 – Avoiding the Top Scams that Target Amazon Sellers

As much of an unpleasant topic as it might be, this episode on scams is a must-listen for beginners who are looking to enter the Amazon FBA space. Amazon scam artists are underestimated and underreported, and it is easy to fall into a trap without the basic knowledge of what to look out for. This episode of the show provides you with the basic tools you need to avoid fraudulent activity and explains how you report an issue so Amazon can (hopefully) blacklist the scam artist.

While this episode might not be as interesting as topics that help you grow your business, we really appreciate the efforts of the podcast hosts to highlight this ongoing issue for the Amazon seller community.
