BONUS LECTURE: Advanced Merch By Amazon Udemy Course


Carina4 May 2019

Thanks, Chris, short and sweet, I certainly got some great nuggets of information. [Half of the info I already knew, but that's because I am a designer]. I especially liked the Merch by Amazon Business Ideas section. Will be doing the advanced course too. Chris speaks fluently, clear and to the point. Enjoyable. Worth doing this course. Thanks again.

I had no idea that something like 'MERCH BY AMAZON' even existed before taking this course,this course introduced me to this amazing thing, great for beginners as the instructor gives you few tips and tricks if you want to get started in this.

Aziz27 February 2019

I was an absolute beginner and I have learned a lot about Merch by Amazon. The course was well organized and direct to the point and had many great practical ideas.

Md12 January 2019

NIce but need a lot of update as this course is 4 years old and the merch by amazon has a lot of new things like tire system.

Afrah3 September 2018

I liked about this course information that I havent found in other courses that I took in Udemy this was the best information I got about merch by amazon so far

Kimberly4 May 2018

The course is pretty good although a great deal of the content is simple comment sense direction. Having it put together all in one place is good.

Melissa3 March 2018

This is a great introduction to Merch by Amazon. Since the course came out shortly after Merch by Amazon started, some of the content is outdated, but overall, it is great.

Md15 February 2018

I am very much satisfied with this course. Hope to get those kinds of course in future. If any new course launched please send me the udemy link via sobuj.mofs@gmail.com. Thanks, Masuk Sarker Batista sir.

Topics covered were applicable to real world sistuations with the operation of a Amazon Merch Account. I will review the videos again just incase I missed clarification on a discussed subject.

Allen14 August 2017

The course presentation, so far, is very easy to understand and informative. I can't wait to continue.

Carol28 July 2017

Overall I enjoyed the course and plenty to learn - just the end section re different types of business felt repetitive and rather group them all together.

Frank3 July 2017

The course is easy to follow and Chris goes into great detail to explain the process and provide sources to help with the procedure.

Stephen21 May 2017

audio could be better - it is a little muffled and indistinct. The information being shared is OK though some of it a little dated. However, on the bright side, it is useful content being explained by someone who has done the donkey work so we don't have to.

Nach knapp der Hälfte muss ich sagen, dass man nicht wirklich Neues lernt. Zugegebenermaßen habe ich mich selbst einen Tag lang durch das Merch Dashboard geklickt und mehr erfahre ich hier auch nicht. Ganz im Gegenteil, wichtige Dinge in Bezug auf Steuern, Abrechnung findet man hier nicht - das Video wird allerdings von einem Amerikaner gemacht, daher ist das weniger kompliziert als bei Nicht-Amerikanern. Ich möchte diese Videos nicht schlecht bewerten, da sie gut verständlich, nicht zu schnell und für absolute Anfänger gedacht sind. Allerdings muss man, um einen Nutzen von den Videos zu haben, wirklich gar keine Ahnung haben und noch nicht einen Blick in Amazon Merch geworfen haben - sonst ist es wenig informativ. Daher kann ich persönlich nicht mehr als 3 Sterne geben, vieles ist eben selbsterklärend auf der Merch Seite oder in Youtube Tutorials und einiges hat sich auch seither verändert.
