Spencer shows you how easy and fast it is to build your own Amazon brand storefront via Amazon Advertising (formerly AMS). Your first step is to sign up for Amazon Advertising. Neil @ MerchInformer has a great article about how to do this: https://merchinformer.com/ultimate-ams-amazon-marketing-services-guide-to-marketing-your-merch/ Brand stores are a valuable tool if you’re selling on Amazon because I believe it can increase conversion, allow you to cross-promote your own products (not your competition), and cohesively pull together a brand message while saving you the hassle of setting up your own store via Shopify, etc. Spencer is going to use this method with some Amazon merch micro niches to try and build up some brand recognition and cross-selling of similar products.
