Amazon can be confusing and strict on its sellers. Despite this, Amazon is the best place for small businesses to get their start. This workshop condenses three years of Amazon knowledge to show you how to make your first Amazon sales and scale. Join us Thursday, July 16, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. for examples of how real small business owners got their start on Amazon and leveraged their success to expand their products to new markets. Topics covered include how a listing should look, how to have Amazon ship your products for you, what to expect for Amazon fees, and how to get your product in front of online customers. This presentation is part of a Business Learning Series hosted by Umeda Islamova, UNL Center for Entrepreneurship. If you would like to be notified of future events, please email
