Have you ever thought about what happens when a seller has a product that they can’t turn a profit on? What do they do with their inventory? Is there a way they can still use it in a way that will reflect positively on the brand? On this episode of Inspired Insider, you’ll hear from Ioan Mitrea as he walks through what ecommerce sellers can do with their less than profitable products. One point that Ioan brings up is that often Amazon sellers utilize Amazon’s storage and shipping options. If that seller has a product they aren’t able to move, it would make financial sense to sell that item at a loss in order to move the product and avoid having to pay Amazon’s storage fees. To hear Ioan expand on this topic and much more, make sure to catch this episode!

On this episode of Inspired Insider, you’ll hear helpful advice from business leader and entrepreneur Ioan Mitrea. Ioan wants to encourage leaders like you to locate a deep sense of self-trust and to be bold enough to push yourself and try endeavors you’ve never tried before!
