The Incredible Success Story Behind Amazon Maven Tommy Rodriguez

Amazon has emerged as an e-commerce giant in the past few years. The growth of this platform has been exponential, giving way to several other business streams through which people are putting food on the table. One such business stream is Amazon automation. Clients from every corner of the world are investing in the service he created 4 years ago. It is focused on dropshipping and he helps his clients by managing their Amazon dropshipping stores on their behalf.

Tommy Rodriguez has become a renowned entrepreneur in this space who started his company, Automation Empire, based on Amazon automation. He even invented an app called TROD that helps his employees fast-track their clients’ stores. The 34-year-old has struggled for years to learn the ins and outs of dropshipping and finally leveraged his knowledge to start a successful business. He also wants people to know about the endless possibilities of Amazon automation.

Rodriguez’s road to success was never easy. He struggled as a child to earn a living. Being homeless at a very young age, Rodriguez learned how to survive much earlier in his life than others would. When his friends were busy chasing lucrative careers, Rodriguez was confused about what he wanted to do with his life. He worked several odd jobs, but none gave him the satisfaction he needed. He even went back to get his GED, but that didn’t help land him his dream job.

It was 2012 when Rodriguez came across an ad on Twitter about hiring people for CPA marketing. With no prior experience, Rodriguez felt drawn to giving it a try because the company tweeted about a free trial. Within a few months of getting into CPA marketing, Rodriguez felt it was more like what he had been looking for. He worked 18 to 20 hours a day to master the marketing strategies and ways of using content to generate leads.

Rodriguez was earning well enough to pay his bills with CPA marketing when he discovered dropshipping on eBay in 2014. This business stream changed his life forever. After much trial and error, Rodriguez single-handedly learned the basics of dropshipping. This wasn’t enough for his entrepreneurial spirit, and he started connecting with dropshipping managers to assist him with his own stores and every aspect of the business. He gradually found it fascinating and profitable in various ways. He felt the need to stop convincing clients to buy a product but instead to help them scale up their businesses.

With his desire to do something different from what others are doing in dropshipping, Rodriguez moved over to Amazon where the traffic was much greater. He developed his team by hiring freelancers in mid-2015 and after a few years, he created Amazon automation. After using virtual assistants for a while he realized the little control he had despite some of the great results his clients were having. In 2020 Tommy got rid of the virtual assistants model and hired employees for his company in Colombia.

Rodriguez’s company Automation Empire is based on the simple concept of being mutually beneficial. He ensures that the revenue flows in by helping people and not exploiting them. With time, Automation Empire has become a trusted platform for clients to invest in quality dropshipping services.
