The EMarketplace Team
What you’ll notice the most when you engage with the Sell Global team, is we really care about your success. We seek to understand your goals, your product, your brand story and your ways of working, so we help you make the right decisions up front, remove the barriers and work with you as a partner in your success with eMarketplaces worldwide.
Unlike other Agencies, the bulk of our team are also in the product and brand business. This means they understand what is involved in detail, from product development, manufacturing, logistics, brand content, and promotion. Because of this, it’s far easier for us to understand your situation, whether you’re a larger company or a small medium enterprise.
There’s also a huge amount of commercial experience in the team, from dealing with the full product lifecycle and selling into major retailers, to IT experience, finance, project management, sales and marketing and doing business in international markets.
Even though we work remotely in New Zealand and Australia, we have refined how we collaborate and communicate so you get an amazing customer experience from a dedicated team. Being in this part of the world is a great advantage for brands as we speak your language, time zones are easy and we know what it takes to be successful from this part of the world. However, many of the team have lived and worked overseas and understand the nuances of the local markets.
You’ll get straight answers from us, at times we will push you to new ‘uncomfortable zones’ to make courageous decisions, or just to hold the path.
We care and we really know our craft. That is – helping you sell more products on Amazon and eMarketplaces.
