Buy Box Experts Execs Expect Record Turnout for Amazon Seller Show They Created

Industry: Ecommerce

Partners at consulting firm for online merchants expect record attendance at leading annual conference for Amazon sellers, an event they created in 2015.

Salt Lake City, UT (PRUnderground) December 16th, 2019

James Thomson and Joseph Hansen are well known in the Amazon seller community as the heads of Buy Box Experts, a leading Amazon account management firm. But prior to starting Buy Box Experts, they began an annual Amazon seller event known as Prosper Show. Five years later, the event is the largest U.S.-based educational conference for Amazon sellers. As registration begins for the 2020 show, the founders anticipate a record turnout.

As the heads of the Buy Box Experts Amazon marketing agency, Thomson and Hansen apply over 30 years of e-commerce experience to successfully manage their clients’ marketplace accounts. They have managed over $2 billion in Amazon revenue and 10,000 Amazon sellers. They provide a personal touch to clients, examining their unique business needs and meeting them through a system of proven processes, proprietary software, and extensive channel experience.

When the Buy Box Experts leaders started Prosper Show back in 2015, they saw a need for a conference that would bring experienced Amazon sellers together to learn and network.

“There were quite a few general-audience events out there, but not much for Amazon sellers who had mastered the fundamentals and were looking for help to take their business to the next level,” said Hansen. “We knew it would appeal to many sellers, but it has out-performed even our highest expectations.”

Prosper Show typically sells out weeks before the show starts. The event has outgrown its original location and now takes place in the spacious exhibition facilities of the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino. While past years have welcomed over 1,600 visitors, organizers are expecting close to 1,800 for the upcoming event, scheduled March 23-25.

Hansen said that although there are endless blogs, books, and other resources out there for learning to improve an eCommerce business, there’s nothing quite like networking with a community of seasoned Amazon sellers and hearing advice directly from respected leaders in the Industry.

“There’s a real synergy at this event, so sellers come away more motivated than ever and with a whole kit of actionable items for increasing sales and streamlining their business in ways they may not have even thought of,” said Hansen.

Hansen said that, unlike many other conferences, Prosper show is Amazon-specific, so marketplace merchants can get specific information suited to their needs rather than broad concepts for selling on different platforms.

Thomson will return as Master of Ceremonies, and the list of speakers boasts a raft of experts, including more former Amazon leaders than any other event. They will address topics such as:

  • Leveraging automation tools for success
  • Building a successful video strategy on Amazon
  • Defending brands against black hat attacks
  • Tax ramifications after Wayfair
  • Growing from seven to eight figures

There will also be over 100 service and solution providers on-hand to share products and services for everything from accounting automation to feedback and review software, shopping cart hosts, product testing, and more.

Thomson and Hansen have long had a passion for helping Amazon sellers succeed. In their work at Buy Box Experts, they take great pride in helping clients manage brand equity and market products across North America and Europe. They also help companies automate and streamline processes for greater efficiency and cost-savings.

Hansen founded and sold four companies prior to starting Buy Box Experts and leverages his experience to help clients achieve eCommerce success.

Thomson has special insight into the workings of Amazon, having served as the head of Amazon Services — the team that recruits tens of thousands of new sellers to the Amazon marketplace each year. He also served as the first Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) account manager. Both Hansen and Thomson speak frequently to Amazon sellers about ways to grow their businesses.
