THE THOUGHTFUL ENTREPRENEUR PODCAST
In this episode of the Thoughtful Entrepreneur, your host Josh Elledge speaks with the President of Phelps United, Adam Shaffer.
Phelps United is dedicated to helping businesses from small to large scale become successful in the ecommerce marketplace. Adam explains that getting products into an ecommerce marketplace like Amazon can help with a businesses growth exponentially. There are negative effects to not being on a platform like Amazon such as losing out on sales or resales of a company's product for less. Reselling is a major issue as products are being sold for less than retail street price by some distributors and it could harm ties with loyal distributors who are selling at the retail street price.
Phelps United works to end the harmful reselling by taking the selling for their clients into their own hands by either selling through their ecommerce store or managing the client’s ecommerce store. Adam explains that businesses with some momentum would be great clients as they are not completely starting fresh and have room to grow the most efficient way. Phelps United has a very good standing with Amazon allowing them to ship their client’s items from their warehouse which cuts down on time. Adam advises to go onto their website and fill in your information on the contact form to get in touch with them.
