Episode 210: How to get 1,000+ Amazon Reviews with Dan Laxton

Want to know how to get 1,000+ reviews on Amazon? Yeah ME TOO! So I found someone with the know-how: Dan Laxton of Bibado. I accosted him with many questions about how to get people to leave you a review – and he did not disappoint. Then he told us all about his fantastic company and I learned a ton about the physical product industry that I never dreamed of...

Key Points

  • [1:00] Who is Dan and what does he do?
  • [5:35] Marketing is about being human and being real, and that’s hard to do on Amazon.
  • [6:35] Dan might just sell baby bibs, but their content doesn’t have to be about just that.
  • hey’ve catered their content to help parents with their children. Everything from parenting hacks to recipes. This helps them be seen as more than just a product provider.
  • [9:05] How does Dan ask for reviews?
  • [13:00] What is the Jungle Scout tool about, and how can it help with your Amazon product?
    [18:30] How did Dan first make the product?
  • [21:45] It is possible to manufacture ethically elsewhere!
  • [25:30] Dan’s team is remote because they prioritize family. They’re trying to create an environment where you can have both a career and a family.
  • [29:00] Dan has recently introduced a childcare policy to help new parents within the organization.
  • [31:45] People care more about reality than the ‘picture perfect’ corporate image. People want to buy from real people.
