Our Trip to SCOE Seattle - With Photos!

Seattle, Washington is home of the original Starbucks, Mount Rainier, Amazon Headquarters, and more. Aside from visiting one of the most beautiful cities in the United States, we were honored to meet a vast amount of online sellers, Amazonians, and other sponsors at our first SCOE experience!

SCOE kicked off on Thursday with presentations and focus group discussions, providing us the opportunity to meet with Amazon Marketplace Web Service (MWS) developers to learn what's new and upcoming within Amazon.

Throughout the afternoon, attendees were invited to sit in on product demonstrations of their choice, reviewing the many eCommerce solutions available.  During our presentation,we had the pleasure of meeting a wide variety of online sellers with experience in several product categories, including textbooks, shoes, books & media, and home goods.

These presentations also served as great opportunities for ReplyManager to network with other vendors, some of which included KabbageShipRush, and AutoMCF (creators of an upcoming product, SellBrite).

The conference slowly wound down with breakout sessions led by eCommerce professionals including Skip McGrath, Vision-One Marketing; Danni Ackerman, CEO, The Danni App; USPS and more.

Topics included:

  • Internet Marketing for Small Businesses
  • The Future of Online Selling
  • Great Customer Service = Positive Feedback
  • Tax & Legal issues for Amazon Sellers 
  • Inventory Management
  • and More!

Overall, our experience at SCOE was fantastic - just as we expected! Thank you to all of those who stopped by our booth and we look forward to seeing you on our next adventure!
