In this episode we are talking livestream shopping with Dexter Moscow, video coach and author of Stand Up and Sell. Dexter has worked with many well known brands and been a former guest presenter for many years on the shopping channel QVC, a brand that now generates over $9bn in revenue. Big E-commerce platforms like Amazon and Alibaba have realised the value of influencers not as mere promoters but highly successful sales drivers. In 2020 Alibaba said it was recruiting 3m influencers, 100k in the first year and Amazon too have requested similar numbers to launch their Amazon influencer programme. Dexter talks about some of the qualities it takes to be a good sales person in a live environment. Some influencers like BeautybyCarla now promote themselves as Amazon Influencers, so what does the future hold for this rapidly growing area. I started by asking Dexter about how he started out in his career.
