Today’s South Dakota sponsor is the FBA Copywriter. These guy’s specialize in writing copy for the ever growing online shopping retail giant – Amazon besides selling it’s own products allows small to medium size businesses to sell their own products on this shopping portal for a set commission fee. Usually around 15% plus the shipping cost. To get the benefits of Amazon’s sales power it is important to have your product listed correctly. In other words you need their amazon listing optimization service to maximize your sales. Feel free to visit their website for further information.
