Over 17 years, Avenue7Media has grown a top-200 seller on Amazon, substantially improved sales performance for six, seven and eight-figure brands, and contributed to greater than 2X growth for most of our clients.
Our Founder & CEO’s Story
My entrepreneurial journey started when my brothers and I, all avid Laker fans, started selling basketball hoops online at SuperDuperHoops. We pledged to create a brand of fun products that reflected our family values. Our mission statement was simple: Instructions: Play. We quickly grew from $100 thousand in sales in 2002 to $1 million in 2003—10X growth in one year! That is when Amazon called. Amazon’s stock price grew by 179% in 2003 alone. It was already clear that Amazon was on track to dominate the e-commerce world.
But they weren’t going to make it easy for their sellers (like us) to grow with them. Policy changes, platform “upgrades,” and a constantly adapting algorithm required a ton of trial and error to navigate. Loss-leading competitors with bigger and bigger advertising budgets threatened our existence. Our story has a happy ending. We grew to be a top-200 Amazon seller. We figured it out through grueling hard work—but we so wished we had an experienced guide to show us the way.
Most sellers don’t just fail to grow on Amazon; they leave demoralized and hurting. I founded Avenue7Media to help deserving brands navigate the booby-traps and thrive in the world’s largest and deadliest marketplace.

Satisfied Customers Tell Our Story
“Amazon is such a contorted organization to work with that we realized we needed a team of specialists if we had hope of truly breaking into that market. We felt continually frustrated. Avenue7Media helped us make numerous course corrections. Now we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, with genuine hope of seeing success in this arena.”
“After over a year of trying, only one of our eight products was selling on Amazon. We couldn’t manage the demands Amazon tasked us with and couldn’t figure out their secret sauce. Avenue7Media changed our world. Within months our account was cleaned up and sales escalated on all of our products.
It was a complete turnaround. Now we have a thriving Amazon account and are in the process of adding new products.
I highly recommend Avenue7Media. They are worth every penny and are the perfect Amazon insurance policy.”
