Anyone planning to sell on the Internet should be aspiring to get their storefront on Amazon. But taking on the ‘Internet Giant,’ especially as a somewhat inexperienced seller, can be quite intimidating. And the people who are intimidated tend to procrastinate and not get it done. Sadly, every day that your products are not on Amazon and other high-traffic platforms is a day you lost money.
So, how do you gain the confidence and learn all the ins and outs of navigating internet sales on large internet platforms? More and more people are hiring an eCommerce consultant company to get around the traffic and start making money. The following are two companies that made names for themselves in 2020 and are emerging eCommerce consultant companies to watch in 2021.
Straight Up Growth
CEO Evan J. Kesner is a business growth specialist and co-founder of two seven-figure businesses. His previous experience includes helping Fortune 500s and Inc.5000 companies grow their sales pipeline ten times faster than previously imaginable within their target prospective customer accounts. With this kind of documented success, Kesner uses his most recent business venture to share his knowledge. His company, Straight Up Growth, aims to give people an edge when looking to scale their direct to consumer business/efforts.
Straight Up Growth focuses on growing brands in the most competitive categories on large internet platforms like Amazon. Kesner and his team know how to skyrocket sales of new brands and new products in ultra-competitive categories. Kesner says the extensive knowledge and experience of the Straight Up Growth team can turn floundering businesses and budding start-ups into market leaders quickly.
One of the reasons Straight Up Growth nets such success for its clients is the vast amount of combined knowledge the team has with their personal experiences selling and advertising on Amazon. This hands-on ‘been there, done that’ experience has given all of the internet specialists at Straight Up Growth an expert understanding of the intricate details that make navigating Amazon tricky. They know how reviews, brand awareness, organic rankings, percent of ad-driven sales, and other factors impact their advertising efforts. And with this information, Kesner says they can provide tailored solutions based on individual client goals and use existing Amazon data to move those clients miles ahead of the competition.
Velocity Sellers’ mission is to know everything there is to know about selling and making money on the Internet, including Amazon. They strive to implement best practices for their partners that grow their businesses on whatever web selling platform they choose.
Velocity Sellers is a team of Amazon and marketplace experts who deliver measurable improvements for Amazon-based sales operations. Velocity Sellers provides industry-leading Amazon and online marketplace consultation and full-service management for brands looking to grow their Amazon businesses.

Velocity Sellers began as a father and son operation, combining Nathan Schwarzbaum’s online marketing experience with his son Jake Schwarzbaum’s aptitude for technology and digital media. The combination of experience and knowledge has served the father-son team well, and their clients would tend to agree.
Velocity Sellers’ clients have discovered that working with this team of dedicated professionals has quickly improved their processes and grown their sales. Of course, the company has since grown well beyond that father-son team and is now a growing organization of experts with a wide range of backgrounds and success stories. However, one thing hasn’t changed. Everyone at Velocity Sellers is dedicated to helping others achieve their selling and business goals.
Navigating the world of online selling can be intimidating, even for some entrepreneurs with eCommerce experience. Any struggling established businesses or budding start-ups that want to get more out of their online selling should consider hiring a consulting company. However, don’t settle for just any company that claims to have Amazon experience. Do your research and choose a trusted firm with a track record of success. Therefore, taking a stronger look at either Straight Up Growth or Velocity Sellers would be a prudent move for you and your business.
