The annual Seller Conference for Online Entrepreneurs (SCOE) was held July 9th to July 12th at the Seattle Airport Marriott. Participants at this seller-run conference are Amazon Sellers who gather to share ideas about selling on Amazon and talk with Amazon staff.
Each year Amazon hosts an “Amazon Day” on Sunday, which includes numerous break-out sessions and office hours. The theme this year for Amazon Day was “Build your Business with Amazon,” and included workshops on Amazon selling programs designed to help Sellers improve their online selling business.
The day began with a keynote address by Scott Pulsipher, Director of Amazon WebStore. Then 300+ participants attended workshops on Amazon WebStore, Fulfillment by Amazon, Checkout by Amazon and Products Ads. Other sessions included presentations and discussion on Selling Coach, Protecting Buyers and Sellers in the Amazon Marketplace and Marketplace Web Services. Amazon also had several Category Managers available from Books, Movies, Consumer Electronics, Home and Toys.
Like last year, there was great demand for Seller Support and Seller Performance office hours where at least 70 Sellers talked with Amazon staff about issues and questions specific to their selling accounts. The conference ended on Monday, July 12th, with a breakfast and feedback session hosted by conference organizer, Rhonda Schneider. It was a full weekend of events and one attendee described his experience aptly: “Great conference – well worth attending.”
