Great interview, I can relate to his story of how his dad either experienced feast or famine in his business I grew up the same way here in Las Vegas.
Thanks for sharing Eleanor! What are you working on currently?
I am learning FBA from Jessica Larrew and using my affiliate commissions to find my Amazon business this is my second month.
Sounds great Eleanor. I hope this interview helped as I know Matt is very experienced with selling on Amazon. What kind of products do you sell on Amazon?
Yes it does help, I sell pretty much anything that has a nice profit margin that I scan. I am out physically sourcing 1-2 a week and then shipping one day. At the moment I am trying to find a nice balance between my affiliate marketing business and sourcing.
Hey Eleanor, how is the sourcing business going?
Thanks Matt for being so open and sharing some of your success stories and some of your big lessons learned.
Wow, I guess the process of evaluating and tracking everything is really important to any business and it can scale the business up quicker. Jeremy, thanks for the inspiring interview!
Hey Chris! Yes, that is a great take home point to track everything so thanks for highlighting that in your comment. What do you have to do a better job of tracking? I just signed up for a free trial at mouseflow and it is very interesting but have to be better about tracking in general.
We have to get better at tracking everything. My own experience of tracking in 2013 has provided some big achievements in all aspects of life. For example, you should track your food intake, your expenses, your performances for goal achievement (first you have to define goals), and so on. In terms of the web and increasing web traffic, you should use all the analytics you have available to determine what working and what’s not and to start leveraging on what’s working.
What is mouseflow, by the way?
Hey Chris, what tools and software do you use to track things?
You can use mouseflow and they have a free version. Someone I interviewed (Gavin founder of Acuity Scheduling) mentioned they use it so I started to. It records all users mouse activity and screen who come on your site and you can actually watch it as a movie to get data on where people are navigating.
A lot of businesses use Kissmetrics and CrazyEgg and Neil Patel talked about some of those here> http://www.inspiredinsider.com/neil-patel-kissmetrics-interview/
Oh, for my website I just use plain ol’ google analytics. However, I’m very familiar with crazy egg and kissmetrics.
As for my personal life I use an android app on my phone called colornote. I’ve been using it every day for more than a year and a half and my productivity has boosted tremendously. It’s a very simple app, yet extremely powerful. at least to me 🙂
are you on Android or IOS?
Thanks Chris. I will check out colornote. I am on android. Thanks for the tip.
Great interview and a lot of practical takeaways.
Thanks Kimanzi! I am glad you enjoyed. I would love to hear your biggest takeaway?
Also your biggest tips on how you sold 80,000 books please ? 😉
Have a safe move that you have coming up!
