AS 28: Amazon Optimization Strategies Interview with Danny McMillan

24 May 2016

Today, we had Danny McMillan on the show, who’s from the U.K. Danny comes from a 17-year-career in the music industry, having run his own labels, worked in production, worked in radio, and as an artist. He was regarded as one of the pioneers of the UK Break beat scene at the end of the 90s followed in the early noughties with a two year weekly residency on the leading UK Radio station Kiss 100 FM, serving up cutting edge dance music. He was considered the barometer of what was hot in Breakbeat and toured the World over. In 2006 Danny, along with his team and long term business partner, developed the DM01 MIDI controller. This is where he got his taste for innovating on products… channeling that experience into music start-ups, digital marketing and online business development.

Sell Your Amazon Business?

If you own an E-commerce business with annual sales of at least $1M+ and you're open to a serious conversation about selling please read on. I have clients with funds between $2M - $20M who are ready to buy low maintenance Ecom businesses doing at least $1M+ in annual sales (with no upper limit) with a profit margin of 20% or higher. The business can utilize Amazon FBA and or Shopify and must own its own website and customer database.

This business will have a basic team of VA's in place or someone who can do most of the grunt work and it will also have sufficient evidence of scope of scale, without the new owner being handcuffed to their desk! If you or someone you know has a healthy Ecom business that meets these basic criteria and you are serious selling your Amazon business and moving on to something new, then please send me a PM with some basic details about your business or please share this post with someone you think might be a great fit.
