This is The post Purchase Pro podcast and today we have a very, very special guest. With us, Chelsea Cohen, she is the CEO and co-founder of SoStocked.com.
Chelsea, I know that when we were speaking the other day, what got me most excited is the way that you guys approach Amazon is from an inventory angle. It's, it's a little different than what most Amazon sellers are used to, when it comes to building an Amazon business. And now more than ever inventory and getting that entire process right, is so, so important. So I'm your host today Seth Stephens along with my co-host John Hart, post purchase pro podcasts. But now let's jump into Chelsea story. So Chelsea, tell us how you guys came to be, who Chelsea is, where you started and where you guys are now.
Sure. Yeah, I started selling on Amazon 2014.
And we had success, of course, as you face, success. You also faced stock outs and around 2018.
Started looking at the bottom line, a concept called Death by Paper Cuts and was all those little tiny things that were eating away at the profit margin, eating away at the revenue.
Inventory seemed to be the one that was something I could get my hands around and also would have a very big impact on the bottom line.
So I have no experience in software, but I actually met someone who did have experienced pitch to my idea. And we went into business together and really worked with hundreds of Amazon sellers to figure out this piece that no one was really getting right back then.
Yeah, that's amazing. So so Chelsea, you were an Amazon seller first, experienced a struggle, right? Experienced success. And then the kinda the consequences of that. And then you said, oh shoot. Not only is there a problem here, but you kinda figured out better than most. And then you started looking at software as kind of a solution to that. Is that kind of your, Your journey in a nutshell?
Yes. yeah, pretty much.
I mean, there's a lot of people along the way who also helped on that journey, and I think that's important is that I Experience certain things in my own business, but there's, I can't experience every single problem. And so it's all been a really collaborative experience with the users.
That's crazy, so Seth and I, as you know from our call before, Chelsea, we had a crazy experience when it comes to inventory.
