The Easy, Inexpensive Method for Private Label Revealed – Free Webinar

Are you interested in doing Private Label, but concerned about sourcing overseas and the high minimums that go with that?

Private Label doesn’t have to be scary or expensive. I launched my first private label product with about a $500 investment.

Join myself and special guest, Lance Wolf, on a live webinar on Thursday evening at 8 PM Eastern Time as we pull back the curtains and reveal our Private Label the Easy Way Method.

At the very least you know that with Lance on there, it’s going to be entertaining. 🙂

Q4 is Here! Are you Ready?

If you sell physical goods then Q4 is the most thrilling adventure you’ll experience. It seems like anything that’s not nailed down will sell in the last quarter of the year.

Are you ready?

Here are just a few tips I wanted to share about being prepared for Q4:

  • Make sure you have plenty of supplies now – Packing Tape, Boxes, etc
  • I only buy items that I can make money on if they sold now. I’m not buying items hoping that they will be going up in value later.
  • Now is not the time to change your business model. Go with what you know, but don’t be afraid to scan items in categories you’re not completely familiar with. If you’re not selling toys, Q4 is the time to get into toys for sure.
  • Be on the lookout for anything seasonal – It seems like anything with the word “Pumpkin” in it sells and as we get closer to Thanksgiving and Christmas keep your eyes open for items that only come out during those holidays.
  • Get help with the processing, packing, and shipping – I’m sure there are plenty of people that live near you that would love to make some extra Christmas money.
  • Source Source Source – This needs to be the main focus
  • Refresh your Amazon Seller Central often to watch your sales – I’m sure the experts would say don’t waste too much of your time doing this, but it’s fun and it motivates me when I see the sales coming in.

There Is Gold in your backyard and CES Conference Videos – Half off until tomorrow 2/24

There Is Gold in your backyard 

I had the tremendous opportunity to speak at a small internet marketing conference in Denver this past week. My wife was able to come with me and we took some time to sightsee. We were doing some shopping and walked into a small shop that specializes in antique maps and high end gifts. The manager was very friendly and began to chat with us about the store. She told us about the different maps and historical pieces she had. As a history buff it was fascinating, but the whole time I was thinking “Are they selling online?” and “How can I help them?” I can’t shut it off. 🙂 When I meet someone I’m thinking “Is there a way for me to help them with their business or to start a business?”

Finding a Mentor, CES Videos, Lifetime Access to MySilentTeam.com, and Offline Biz

Webster’s dictionary defines a mentor as a “wise and faithful counselor.” In my personal life I look to my father as the man I want to be. In my business my mentor is Jim Cockrum, recently named one of the most trusted internet marketers.

I have been following Jim since about 2004, but I had the pleasure of first meeting him in 2012. I had no idea, but that lunch meeting changed my business forever. One idea he presented to me has catapulted our business far beyond what I could have imagined. Since then we have partnered on a book project and I suspect we’ll partner in many more projects.

Who is your mentor? I challenge you to find someone that has built the type of business you want to have and has character qualities that you admire.

Real Wholesale Sources Ebook…..Coming Soon!

ebook_REALwholesale_2

Do any of these sound familiar?

– Driving around all day going from store to store to source products to come away with only a few items to sell
– Finding a great item with amazing profit potential at a thrift store and selling it quickly at top dollar, but not being able to find it again to repeat the process
– Searching for hours online at all the clearance sites to no avail
– Perusing craigslist looking for items to buy and flip, but having to drive 30 minutes to make a few dollars profit
– Spending all day on a Saturday going from garage sale to garage sale looking at other people’s junk

Don’t get me wrong. All of the above mentioned inventory sources can be a great way to find products to sell online and I personally use many of these sources for products. However, I would prefer to find a great selling product that I can consistently buy to sell online. This is the beauty of buying wholesale.

You might be saying “Isn’t it difficult to get accounts with wholesale sources without a brick and mortar store?” Maybe 15 years ago it was, but things are rapidly changing. More and more wholesalers are seeing that the internet is not going away anytime soon and that if they want to keep up they have to sell to online dealers.

What’s in this product? Over 200 wholesale sources that you can purchase from in your pajamas. Some will require a state sales tax permit (we’ll show you how to get one) and some won’t.

Why would we share this information? We can’t possibly buy all the items we have found so there’s plenty of inventory to go around for everyone.

We will be releasing this very soon. We can email you when it’s ready for purchase if you enter your email address in the form to the right.

FBA: THE Reason Amazon is a good starting point

Earlier this year I wrote a post called “3 Reasons why eBay is a good starting point.”

While I still believe eBay should be one of your income streams if I had the opportunity to do that post over again, I would change it to “eBay can be a good starting point, but why bother when there’s Amazon”. I’m kidding. A little bit.

Seriously. eBay is still an important source of income for us and it’s even better when used in conjunction with Amazon’s FBA service (Fulfillment by Amazon). Did you know that you can have inventory stored in Amazon’s warehouse and have Amazon send them to your eBay customers when you make a sale? For people like me who don’t enjoy packing boxes this is a dream come true. Amazon calls this multi-channel fulfillment.
It has changed our business. Now we can have items listed on both Amazon and eBay and when we make a sale we let Amazon do the packing and shipping for us. Plus we get to take advantage of Amazon’s low shipping rates.

Also with FBA we can literally be on vacation sitting on a beach and our business is still running. Some friends of mine have a very large eBay business, but when they go on vacation they have to shut their business down. I’m trying to convince them to add Amazon to their repertoire.

So while eBay may still be the best avenue to unload your collectibles and should be one of your income streams, if I was going to re-write that post it would be titled something like “FBA: THE Reason Amazon is a good starting point” hence the name of this post.
