As a teenager, Rick Contreras started selling on Amazon and eBay to earn extra money. From the moment he sold his first listing, he was drawn to the world of e-commerce. Today, Rick Contreras is a leading e-commerce expert and consultant who helps other entrepreneurs step up their online stores.
Rick Contreras is a Mexican-American entrepreneur from Los Angeles, California. Growing up, he discovered a taste for entrepreneurship. In his early days as an entrepreneur on Amazon and eBay, Rick put in a lot of time learning how to use these platforms to his advantage. He shares, “I saw the potential that Amazon had. I became obsessed with learning the tricks in becoming a successful seller on the world’s biggest online marketplace.”
As Rick Contreras’s expertise grew, other entrepreneurs and companies started reaching out to him. “They wanted me to help them run their seller accounts,” the businessman shares. Rick saw that many people could benefit from his knowledge and expertise. With that realization, he went from aspiring entrepreneur to a leading e-commerce consultant.
“My Amazon seller knowledge grew along with my client base. Now I work with multiple clients, and I help them dominate on Amazon,” Rick Contreras says. As an e-commerce consultant, Rick works with a variety of clients. He works with brands big and small, with aspiring entrepreneurs and long-time business owners. “In this modern-day and age, everything we do is online. Having a company’s products available on Amazon will help that company grow and succeed,” this entrepreneur shares.
In starting his e-commerce consulting agency, Rick Contreras wanted to provide a wide variety of services to fulfill any company’s online product launching needs. He and his team specialize in creating and managing Amazon listings. “Selling on Amazon is not as easy as most people think it is. There is a technique for creating listings that stand out against the competition. My team and I know the intricacies of optimizing seller accounts on Amazon,” Rick shares.
Consulting with Rick Contreras will give business owners a strategic plan to help build their listings. Rick’s team will perform an account and listing audit, analyzing and developing a product launch strategy that will work best. Then they start working on enhancing product listings. Once that is done, the team monitors and manages the seller accounts and handles any issues that may come up. “The process may be overwhelming to those new to online selling. But they will get all the support they need from my team and I,” says Rick.
Throughout all his success, Rick Contreras always kept his heritage. “Being Mexican-American gave me the great opportunity of being bilingual. Now, I am able to directly help Spanish-speaking entrepreneurs by offering all of my services in both English and Spanish. That way, more people could have a chance at building their business on Amazon,” he shares.
Rick Contreras has come a long way from the teenager who sold random things on eBay and Amazon. He was passionate and dedicated to improving his e-commerce skills, and it has brought him tremendous success. He shares, “My one advice for new entrepreneurs is to take their business online, specifically on Amazon. The platform will help them achieve incredible growth and will help take their business to the top.”
