Nathan and Jake Schwarzbaum, Co-Founders and CEO and COO, respectively, launched this business from a hospital room where Nathan was battling leukemia. Jake would visit his dad during treatments, and the two of them created a full-service consulting agency focused on the Amazon marketplace from treatments rooms in 2014.
Nathan, with more than 25 years of marketing under his belt, knew that most eCommerce businesses and CMO’s wanted to scale on Amazon but didn’t have a proven way to do that.
“Success on Amazon requires complete compliance and total immersion, and there was no way for new-to-Amazon eCommerce Directors and CMO’s to increase their sales on Amazon quickly,” said Nathan.
“When you don’t know how or have the time to master Seller Central at Amazon and Vendor Central on Amazon platforms, it can be very frustrating,” said Jake. “You can see the potential your brand has, but you feel hopeless because you can’t spend time building a team to make it happen. We believe you shouldn’t have to build an internal operations team to grow your sales on Amazon.”
What began as a father and son operation has grown to a thriving, decentralized business that serves the globe, with thousands of happy clients and serving more than 25 markets around the world.
Nathan, now in complete remission from leukemia, says that Velocity Sellers is hyper-focused on helping brands increase their sales on Amazon while improving their processes, managing logistics, and forecasting inventory.
“We understand what CMO’s and eCommerce directors need in online marketplaces,” continued Nathan. “This is why we pair every brand with a team of dedicated consultants to help them launch and scale on Amazon.”
Jake says that many Amazon consultant agencies rely primarily on automation and AI to solve compliance problems and optimize listings, “But not our team,” he said. “We are obsessed with helping brands exceed their sales goals, and the way we do that is by making sure skilled seller consultants are behind the wheel, not failure-prone automations.”
With a bright future and more marketplace dominations on the horizon, Velocity Sellers helps brands stop feeling lost in the complexity of Amazon and become brands that are maximizing their revenue opportunities on Amazon.
