Mike is no stranger to the e-Commerce world, he began his intrepid venture in 2012 where he eventually found success selling off his first business, Treadmill.com. Since 2014, Mike has started multiple successful e-Commerce brands that garner revenues of over 7 million USD annually.
The discussion was facilitated by Meghla Bhardwaj. Since 2016, Meghla has been working with Amazon by enabling e-Commerce sellers to realise their global potential.
Mike Jackness: An introduction
The dialogue consisted of three key sections, starting with product selection. It gave listeners a better grasp of initiating a product, how to stand out from the crowd and create more depth to a product to cater to a pre-defined customer base. On a deeper discussion, he touched on planning the mechanics behind your product and the effort you have to put in after your product selection that will weigh in on your success or failure.

Mike then proceeds to cover product ranking. What truly defines the success of a product or a business, are its customers. How adding a psychological touch to your products could positively influence a potential buyer. He then explains how your mindset, as a seller, plays a part in how your product will fare.
