Amazon Marketing & Sales Agency
Established in 2009, DotCom Reps LLC is the premier Amazon.com consulting agency & manufacturer’s rep firm. Our job is to manage your sales and marketing on Amazon. We work for manufacturers to create and further develop a customer base without dramatically increasing overhead or making drastic changes to existing business models. By expanding your online retail presence (increasing your digital footprint) with our eCommerce sales rep service you will increase your gross sales. We have over 10 years of experience on Vendor Central (1P) and Seller Central (3P), and have used Brand Registry, AMS, AMG, A+ content, Vine, Early Reviewer Program and other valuable Amazon tools since their launch. Our service specialties include Amazon PPC management and Content Development.
Our mission is to be the best ecommerce retail rep firm in the industry, and be the best Amazon consultant you can hire. You can expect high levels of customer service and responsiveness along with years of platform knowledge in order to catapult your brand into keyword relevance.
Based on experience our customers will see increased profit margin online vs traditional brick and mortar. E-commerce reduces the barriers to entry and costs associated with generating traffic (awareness) to the brand or product(s). This translates into less risk for the brand owner and an increased chance of success with equal investment in marketing.
In most cases our services will be completely risk free and cost-effective for your business. Our services in a sense pay for themselves. We are available for long term and short-term contracts, hourly and commission-based.
We have also developed an extensive relationship with other service suppliers including graphic artists, automation providers, sales data & analytics tracking, and other integrations to make your Amazon business run smoother.
