3 Big Reasons Why Amazon FBA Sellers Fail - EP113

Welcome To Episode #113 of the Amazon FBA Private Label Show Podcast! In this episode I give you 3 big reasons why many Amazon FBA sellers fail to become successful selling on Amazon. Listen to this Amazon FBA Podcast!  [powerpress] 3 Big Reasons Why Amazon FBA Sellers Fail - EP 113 I want you to wildly succeed selling on Amazon FBA. Right now there are thousands of sellers making it happen every single day. They are running great businesses using the power of Amazon to launch products and start amazing brands. On the other hand their are a lot of sellers that struggle and eventually fail. Why is that? Why do some have wild success and others give up and move on to yet another business venture? As a successful online seller I have come up with my best 3 reasons on why Amazon FBA sellers fail and why some become successful. SELLERS DON'T FULLY COMMIT  Treat as a real actual business Need to set attainable goals Need to have laser focus  Avoid shiny object syndrome Buy a course to accelerate results NOT HAVING ENOUGH CAPITAL  Lacking money for marketing or giveaways is trouble Come at your launch from a position of strength Try to avoid a loan. It's a bad idea.   Acquire more capital by flipping items on Amazon and Ebay THEY GIVE UP TO EARLY Successful sellers keep pushing forward We all have setbacks and failed products. It's normal. Failure is feedback You are 1 product away from changing your life   Please join me at Seller Con this June in Las Vegas I like to attend a handful of marketing and Amazon events a year as it's a great way to network with other sellers while learning new skills. This event is supposed to be one of the best for Amazon sellers to attend and I am really excited to check it out this coming June. Come join me! GRAB YOUR TICKET TO SELLER CON 2019 HERE!

My 3 Step Formula for a $1,000,000 Business - EP131

Welcome To Episode #131 of the Amazon FBA Private Label Show Podcast! In this episode I give you my 3 step formula for creating a $1,00,000 dollar business and brand. Listen to this Amazon FBA Podcast! [powerpress] My 3 Step Formula for a $1,000,000 Business - Amazon FBA Recently I was at SellerCon in Las Vegas and I was listening to a presentation given by Ryan Danial Moran. Ryan was talking about how Amazon FBA has changed a lot over the years and that we as business owners need to think differently about our business and brands. Tactics that worked just a few years ago no longer work anymore. Ryan specified that we as business owners need to become real entrepreneurs and build real brands that we can grow and scale on and off of Amazon. We have the power and the tools to create real brands that are making money and making a difference in the world.  In this podcast I break down my 3 step formula for creating successful brand and how you can get to your first $1,000,000 in sales. You will see that once you build a real audience around your brand and products that achieving your sales goals will be easy. The focus should be on building real assets that you can control such as e-mail lists, ManyChat audiences, and social media assets. If you build valuable assets that are engaged with your brand and content then you won't be so reliant on the changes that frequently happen on Amazon FBA.  THE FORMULA TO $1 MILLION Find a niche and a specific customer to serve Build your audience + Launch 3-5 related products Your brand X-Factor  Now if you are just starting out selling online and on Amazon FBA then the thought of hitting $1 million is sales for the year may seem unattainable. If you follow the formula and shift your mindset a bit then you will find out you can easily hit the $1 million mark very quickly.  $1,000,000 = $2,739 per day Sell 5 products doing just $547 per day per product  Sell 5 products at $25 doing an average of 22 units a day for each product STEP 1 - FIND A NICHE AND CUSTOMER TO SERVE Build a brand and a business in and around a niche that interests you.  Generate ideas by writing down your interests and hobbies. Also browse Amazon categories for ideas.  Make sure the niche is thriving and has lots of demand Build a customer avatar for your target customer Age, Sex, Education, Interests, Hobbies, etc... What does your customer care about?  Where do they hang out online?  What problems are they facing?  Design your business, brand and products around solving your customers problems   STEP 2 - BUILD YOUR AUDIENCE + LAUNCH 3-5 PRODUCTS  Research and identify your first core product Start building and growing your audience and lists Start posting enraging content on social media  Invest $5-$10 per day on Facebook ads to grow your platform and audience Start building your email list and ManyChat audience  Include your new and growing audience in on your products development  Build excitement for your upcoming product launch Launch your product to your new "tribe" and use Amazon PPC Get tunnel vision on getting your product ranked to page 1 on Amazon Ask your "tribe" for testimonials of your brand and product Share these as pieces of content  Use product inserts to build a VIP customer list  Repeat the process for product # 2  Repeat the process for products 3-5 Start using other larger influencers audiences to launch products with Continue spending money every day on content and Facebook ads to grow your audience  Become obsessed with your customers product/brand experience and journey  STEP 3 - YOUR BRANDS X-FACTOR Why does your brand exist? What separates your products and brand from the competition? Understand that people care about what your brand represents  Connect your brand with a purpose, charity, movement, idea, etc... Then communicate that to them often Focus on creating raving fans The fastest way to get to $1,000,000 from a small micro brand selling on Amazon FBA is to get your customer to buy from you over and over again. Once they buy from you once they should be exposed to your brand story and what you represent. If your brand has an X-factor that speaks to your target customer then they will support you and buy the rest of your products over time. That's how you win. When you can get a single customer to buy everything you have to offer because they know and trust you.  Not a member of the Facebook Mastermind group yet?

8 Great Amazon Product Research Tips For Success - EP126

Welcome To Episode #126 of the Amazon FBA Private Label Show Podcast! In this episode I give you 8 Amazon product research tips to help you find better products to sell on Amazon FBA.  Listen to this Amazon FBA Podcast! [powerpress] 8 Great Amazon Product Research Tips For Success - EP126 Most Amazon sellers struggle with product research and choosing either their first product or their next product. Perhaps they have had a few products fail in the past and they are hesitant now and don't want to fail. We've all been there. In this podcast episode I put together 8 Amazon product research tips and strategies that you can use to help you find great products to sell on Amazon FBA.  I always recommend that you use a great Amazon product research tool like Jungle Scout to help aid you in this process. You need a good tool to help discover product opportunities as well as help you validate and verify critical data on Amazon.  AMAZON PRODUCT RESEARCH TIPS Pick boring products There will be less competition selling products that aren't exciting  Focus on Arts and Crafts, Office Supplies and Storage Think Sub Niches Most sellers don't dig deep enough to find odd or unique categories that you need to drill deep down into. This is where the gold is.  Sell products that are easily gift-able You can charge more and stand out when your product is gift-able Explore selling gift-able products for retirement, weddings, bachelor parties, mothers day, fathers day, etc... Use Google Trends Use the filters and search bar to dig to find what ideas, topics and products are currently trending Pay attention to pop culture and what's happening in the news Gender reveal products, re-usable straws and bags Facebook Groups are pure gold Join lots of Facebook groups for niches that you are interested in Be a fly on the wall and observe what people are talking about What products are other sellers trying to promote in these groups? Join deal sites and groups that other Amazon sellers are using to launch products Pay attention to products that are being launched and avoid commonly launched products  Use Pinterest and Etsy for Amazon product research ideas Use the filters to find popular topics and products You will find unique items with these platforms Use niche websites Get off of Amazon and use Google to find leading niche websites  Explore their best sellers, featured products and unique items they are selling -------------------------------------------------------   Want to get entered to win a license for a Jungle Scout chrome extension?

6 Amazon FBA Product Research Mistakes Sellers are Making

Welcome To Episode #127 of the Amazon FBA Private Label Show Podcast! In this episode I share 6 common mistakes that many Amazon sellers are making when in the Amazon FBA product research phase. Don't make these mistakes!  Listen to this Amazon FBA Podcast! [powerpress] 6 Common Amazon FBA Product Research Mistakes Sellers Make - EP127 Over the years I have seen many sellers make the same critical makes when in the Amazon FBA product research phase. They may use tools like Jungle Scout to help them come up with potential product ideas but they fail to fully validate the idea. Then later after they launch the product on Amazon the product doesn't sell like they expected. This can be demoralizing as all your hard work and investment goes down the drain. It's critical to go the extra mile to ensure that the product your are going to be selling on Amazon is set up for success.   6 common mistakes that many seller are making in the Amazon FBA product research phase:  FAILING TO KNOW YOUR NUMBERS AHEAD OF TIME You need to know what your total profit per unit is going to be after a sale How much is it to make per unit? What are the shipping costs going to be? What are your potential taxes and tariff when shipping? What are the Amazon FBA or Small and Light fees going to be per unit sold? How much is your listing or product images going to cost? What are the marketing costs going to be with your launch? Use the Jungle Market or Marketing Words to outsource your listing creation TRYING TO REINVENT THE WHEEL  Only sell product that are in demand Avoid product that have no or low demand Avoid selling products that require to much customer education before purchase  Don't get to cute or creative with your Amazon FBA product research ideas.  AVOID SELLING ITEMS THAT EASILY BREAK  Avoid selling items made of glass, takes batteries, is electronic Sell products with few moving parts Lower the risk for customer returns and disappointment FAILING TO PROPERLY EVALUATE THE ENTIRE MARKET Don't just evaluate the top few competitors.  Evaluate the entire first page of competition Understand how sales are being spread among all the top sellers Check listings for potential external traffic feeding sales Evaluate and check sales history over a long period of time using a tool like the Jungle Scout Web App AVOID PRODUCTS THAT ARE HYPER COMPETITIVE Focus on under the radar opportunities  Find products that are doing $5-$8K in revenue with low competition and high margin  Focus on launch and selling "singles" that could lead into doubles, triples or home runs.  AVOID SELLING PRODUCTS THAT MAY HAVE PATENTS OR OTHER LEGAL RESTRICTIONS  If you come across a product that is doing very well and it has minimal competition the product may potentially have a patent protecting it Check to make sure you can legally sell products without issue Use the USPTO site or similar to check for patents ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Want to get entered to win a license for a Jungle Scout chrome extension?

Hacks and Strategies to Explode your Amazon FBA Business EP137

Welcome To Episode #137 of the Amazon FBA Private Label Show Podcast! In this episode I talk with Bradley Sutton of Helium 10 where we discuss actionable hacks and strategies to help you drive clicks, sales and conversions to help you level up your Amazon FBA business.  Listen to this Amazon FBA Podcast! [powerpress] Hacks and Strategies to Explode Your Amazon FBA Business EP 137   In our podcast today I wanted to deliver some simple and actionable tactics that you can use to drive conversions and sales with. I am joined by the one and only Bradley Sutton of Helium 10 where Bradley drops some absolute golden nuggets that sellers can use and implement immediately. I would advise you to listen to this episode and conversation more than once in case you feel you missed anything. Inside Bradley and I discuss the current state of Amazon as well as increasing conversions, improving keywords, product research techniques and launching products successfully on Amazon.  CURRENT STATE OF AMAZON FBA Amazon is becoming more and more competitive over the years but there is still tons of opportunity for new sellers as well as experienced sellers to grow and build their Amazon FBA business. Once you have established yourself on the Amazon FBA USA market it may be time to expand out to Amazon Germany, UK and Japan or other markets. Also consider emerging platforms such as Walmart, Jet or other competing sites. I personally recommend that if you are building your brand you should also setup a Shopify site to expand your reach and net.  CONVERSIONS AND SALES Use a site like Pickfu.com to test our different images for your listing. As a marketer you may think you know what images will work best for your listings but the best route is to get audience feedback. Images are everything on Amazon. When you have the best image that gets the most attention and clicks from customers you will most likely connect on more sales.  To convert on more sales you need to make sure your listing is speaking directly to your customers. You need to dive into your competitors and your own product reviews to fully understand how your customers talk and the lingo and keywords that they are using. This will allow you to better optimize the copy and keywords that you use in the listing. You will also better understand how to position and create your products images once you understand exactly how customers are using the product. Use a tool like Helium 10 to help you extract the review data to make things easier.  LAUNCHING PRODUCTS ON AMAZON FBA Every product is going to be different on how you approach the launching process. More competitive products will require you drive more giveaways or sales to particular keywords to start getting ranked. When you use tools like Helium 10 your will see exactly how many sales you need to connect on for a specific keyword before Amazon will start ranking you for it.  Use PPC as part of your launch strategy and keep your PPC running after the launch is over. Focus in on relevant long tail keywords when you have more competitive products. Build and email list or Many Chat list to launch products to.  Use a launch service if you need some extra juice to get ranked. It's important that you be very mindful and careful of Amazon's TOS and rules in regards to these services.  Use custom URL's to get extra ranking power when driving traffic. See Helium 10's gems page.  Bradley mentioned a few launch services to explore: Check out Rebate Key and  Rank Bell.  It's important to note that if you do a launch and get to page one for your keywords that their is no guarantee that you will stay ranked on page one. Ultimately the market will speak and if your product or listing is not worthy of being ranked on page one yet for the keywords you are targeting then consider keywords with less competition.   PRODUCT RESEARCH There are tons and tons of product opportunities everywhere on Amazon FBA. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. If certain products are hard to compete with on Amazon FBA in the USA then consider other markets around the world or ever other platforms.  Don't become overly reliant on tools to make decisions for you. As great as some of the tools like Helium 10 are we as sellers still need to use our heads and try to find the opportunities in front of us. the tools will give us the data and it's our job to recognize and see things other sellers missed. The key is to remember to give the market what it's wants. Don't reinvent the wheel.    WANNA TRY HELIUM 10? Helium 10 is wickedly powerful and I recommend you take their tools out for a test drive if you haven't already. Here are some sweet listener discounts for you to use.  ====>>>> Exclusive Helium 10 Discount Link USE CODE: PLSHOW10 - for 10% off every month USE CODE: PLSHOW50 - for 50% off your first month Not a member of the Facebook Mastermind group yet?

3 Great Ways To Make Money On Amazon In 2019

Welcome To Episode #114 of the Amazon FBA Private Label Show Podcast! In this episode I break down 3 different ways to make money on Amazon other than private labeling.  Listen to this Amazon FBA Podcast!  [powerpress] 3 Great Ways To Make Money On Amazon In 2019 - EP114 There are quite a few different ways to make money on Amazon right now and I wanted to highlight and break down 3 great ways in this podcast. None of these methods have anything to do with private labeling by the way. So whether you are just looking to make a few extra dollars each month or create an entire full time business one of these methods might be perfect for you.  METHOD # 1 - AMAZON KINDLE PUBLISHING  I started off my online career with Amazon Kindle Publishing and I earned a good income from this method while learning a ton of valuable skills along the way. The sky is the limit with Kindle and I personally know publishers making a great living by publishing e-books on Amazon.  PRO: You don't need to be a writer or write your own books Minimal startup costs Can be very passive and you can easily scale  No inventory because it's all digital Can easily make a full time income once established  CON:  Very competitive  Can take a while to start making money  TIPS: Spend the extra money to hire great writers. Also spend extra money on quality covers.  As mentioned on the podcast I learned everything I needed to know about Amazon Kindle Publishing from the K Money Mastery course. I highly recommend you check it out if you are interested in starting your own publishing business.  Click to check out K Money Mastery here METHOD # 2 - MERCH BY AMAZON I love this method because it's really fun and it doesn't really cost anything to get started. All you are really doing is creating cool designs that will go onto things like t-shirts and Amazon will print and ship the shirt once someone buys it off of Amazon. Print on demand has exploded the past few years and their is still so much money to be made with it. You can literally upload your designs and start making money on Amazon immediately.  PRO: Very low barrier of entry to get started Almost no money to get started No inventory to handle or customers to deal with You can scale and outsource the entire process very easily CON:  You probably aren't going to make a ton of money from it It can take a lot of designs to get one that really hits It takes a long time to get accepted into the program TIPS: Focus on trends and pop culture if you want to have a lot of success. Focus on sports, politics, music and movies.  METHOD # 3 -RESELLING / RETAIL ARBITRAGE  This is a fantastic way to make money on Amazon if you need some extra cash fast. You are simply finding and buying items from local stores or shops and then selling them for a higher price on Amazon. Sellers may go to stores such as Walmart and find deals on certain clearance items and buy them for a very low price and then send them into Amazon to sell them for more.  PRO:  It doesn't take much money to get started Great for making money on Amazon fast You don't need to market or promote your products CON:  You can't scale this business  You are exchanging time for money so it's not passive at all  TIPS: Focus on items such as books or college text books. Search your house for old text books that you can send into Amazon to make a good profit on.  Amazon Owes You Money!  * If you have been selling on Amazon for any period of time then their is a good chance that Amazon owes you money. If you are not actively submitting cases for reimbursements for customer return issues and lost inventory then you are potentially missing out on thousands of dollars that Amazon will reimburse you for. As I mentioned on the podcast I have been using a great service that manages all this for me now. So far I have gotten back thousands in the past few months. How much will you get back?

I have received thousands in refunds from using this service from things like misplaced inventory and issues with customer refunds. There are no monthly fees to use this service which is awesome. Just set it and forget it. K Money Mastery – This was the first course I ever purchased and went through. By following this course I went on to make lots of money selling and publishing e-books on Amazon Kindle. The best part was that I didn’t even have to write a single book of my own.  If you want to learn how to make money by starting your own publishing business then try this course out.
