Why It Could Make or Break Your Q4

September 14, 2020 | 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST


For most brands, Q4 represents the most critical time of the year for hitting sales targets & expanding their reach to consumers. This year, brands will have to learn how to balance additional pressure from increasing supply chain & order fulfillment challenges, shifting customer preferences of sales channels, uncertainty from a federal election, potential decrease in available disposable income for many consumers & much more.

This discussion will tackle the key issues listed above and will provide guidance on fundamental Q4 decisions that need to be made now in order to successfully execute on holiday sales targets. Join this discussion to learn from Amazon experts & digital focused peers about preparing for an increase in eCommerce orders this holiday season.
