Key Quotes: 

“When we think about Amazon, specifically, we have to understand that we do not sell products, we sell keywords. So even if I have the greatest product in the world, if there’s no keyword demand for it, or there’s too much keyword competition, it won’t sell.” – Tim Jordan

“There’s no simple button to push. And if you’re just pushing a button to find the great product opportunity, you’re pushing the same button as everybody else, and you’re gonna fail at it.” – Tim Jordan

“The software is giving the evidence and not dictating decision.” – Tim Jordan
