How Can The Team At Sunken Stone Help Me More Than A Consultant?
Generally, consultants are hired for specific short-term projects where the brand implements the solutions strategies formulated by the consultant. At Sunken Stone, we leverage our 50+ person team to implement every single solution strategy that ensures our clients’ success on Amazon in a done-for-you way.
In the constantly changing & evolving Amazon space, eCommerce brands seek strategic solutions to increase the effectiveness of their channel & scale their brand. Depending on the scope of the project and the amount of work required, there are several factors to consider when choosing what type of solution is right for your brand.
How To Select The Right Solution For Your Company
No matter what the size of your company, one of the first things to consider is the available amount of budget that you have to work with. The second thing to consider should be the amount of resources (time, software, etc.) in which you have to devote to the project. And the last thing to consider should be the ROI and the solution implementation rollout time.
Working with a consultant can be a smart solution for only a few certain types of problems in which brands face today. For the most part, consultants are used when a brand currently manages Amazon in-house themselves and they provide a fixed-project scope that will help their customers on or off the platform.
