TAE 057: Product Research Parameters - What Metrics Should You Use When Using Product Research Tools?

Happy Friday! Hope you had an amazing week and are pumped for the weekend!  Here's my motivational quote for the week: A few bad chapters doesn't mean your story is over! This is really to symbolize that you can make mistakes and go through bad times, but those experiences don't define you. Keep going and keep writing that script because the story of YOUR life is for YOU to control :) So in this episode I'm talking about product research metrics and what parameters you should be using when using a tool such as Helium 10. There are a lot of a parameters to choose from and most people stick to the same set - I talk about why that isn't always best and a method to try something different that can also be successful. For Helium 10, you guys can get $100 off per month with the platinum plan by using code TAZ so go and do that and try out Black Box which is their product research tool. They have so much more value to offer and I'll Manny Coats back on in a few weeks to talk about their latest updates. I also mentioned yasiv.com which is a tool that helps you to see what products are being bought together with other products which is another very useful way to find products! Hope you guys enjoyed this episode, and an amazing weekend!

TAE 070: What I Learned Getting To $50k Per Month, Fake Reviews And More Million Dollar Sellers Than Ever!

Hey guys! My motivational quote for the week: "I never lose, I win or I learn" As always, explanation in the episode! I'm coming at you from Vegas and in this episode I go into the details of some of the key lessons I learned as I made my way up to $50k in revenue per month and also some news on fake reviews and more million dollar sellers than ever! 1. I thought I could do way more than I did. I am super ambitious but can admit that trying to launch 7 products in Q4 was beyond me and I should have tried it... which leads me to... 2. I should have got a mentor immediately. Had I done so, I would have been protected from my own stupidity and done a lot better (though the lessons are valuable) 3. Must learn to push through the hard times.  At one point I was paying $4.5k per month in loan and card repayments with 0 sales. This was a tough time and I am blessed that I have a full time job that can support this level of risk taking! 4. Cash flow is EVERYTHING! Again, another HUGE lesson that I’ve spoken about at summits and is critical to understand before you think that you can launch (and then keep in stock) 7 successful products with about $80k. Newsflash, you can’t, at least not with the products I was going after! 5. Staying in stock is a challenge! I also made it onto the Follow The Data podcast with Viral Launch so have Casey Gauss and Cameron Yoder talking to me about what it's like working full time and running an Amazon business! Check it out here! Talk next week!
