How To Drill Down In The Best Sellers On Amazon

Did you know that you can drill down in the bestsellers on Amazon to find some really cool products that you can take and run with to make some great money?

We are all so used to just seeing the top 100 products within the main category, but by clicking on some of the sub-categories and sub-sub-categories we can go deeper and deeper to see what people are buying right now on the Amazon platform.

As a tip remember that these top 100 lists are just a stamp shot in time of what is selling. Amazon refresh this every hour, of every day, of every week of every year. But here in the UK we can see how long a product has been there. Sometimes it is brand new other times it has been there for hundreds and even for thousands of days. The longer it has been there the greater the chance of the product being long term seller. Also you can see if it is on the way up or down. Green is good, red is keep an eye open.

Over the next few weeks we will be looking at how to source products in a lot more detail. Product Sourcing is one of these things that as online resellers you need to get a real understanding of for if you don’t you will not have products to sell.

Remember I am here to help you anyway I can to get a grasp on how to source, where to source products from, but there is a great course that has helped many people come to terms and understand it a lot better. The course is called Product Sourcing Master Class and if you click on the link you will be taken to further information.

In closing check out the video below and leave us comments and any questions and we will help you get started

Sourcing The Life Blood Of Your Amazon / eBay Business

As a Amazon / ebay consultant it has been worrying me recently when have beenSourcing The Life Blood Of Your Amazon / eBay Business talking with people and I hear they have been struggling with sourcing products to re-sell. Yes we can have a grasp of how the numbers all work, what sales rank is and how to buy within sales rank and make sure there are only a few FBA sellers, we can have top marks for that.

But if we cannot grasp hold of how to source and what sourcing is then our business will slowly die a death.Therefore I have decided to spend the next week or so, and look at what sourcing is, and how to do it in a way that is fun and enjoyable and at times can involve your family and friends.

We will look at many different ways of how to source, for example:

  • Retail Arbitrage
  • Online Arbitrage
  • Wholesale
  • Importing
  • Private Label
  • Craft
  • Trade Shows

As ecommerce sellers we need to learn not only just how to source but to make it a fun part of our business. If we do not enjoy getting out there and finding new products then our business will slowly die a death as there will be no products in our stores for people to buy. And if people keep coming back and find the same items time after time they soon get bored and will look elsewhere.

Over the course of this mini how to source course we will look at many different and creative ways to source products using a range of free and paid for tools. As I mentioned at the start it is good to know your numbers and it is a must, but numbers without products is no good, and products without knowing the numbers is no good either so we need both. And throughout this process you will see how we can do this.

If you have any questions please leave them in the comments section below or over on our Facebook Page and we will help you all we can. Lets make this interactive and above all lets have some fun.

How Amazon Can Change Your Life For Ever

Did you know Amazon can change your life for ever? Have you ever wondered FBAwhat it would be like to have a global retail business with products selling 24 hours a day, and you never having to send a single package out, rarely deal with customers, and even manage your business from the beach? And having a payment sent to your bank account every 14 days?  Well this is the world on Amazon FBA. Or Fulfillment By Amazon.

But before you all start packing your cases and heading to the beach, I do need to tell you something you still need to do some work – sorry. But the work is fun.  It means you can go shopping and buy lots of cool items, toys, gadgets, home and kitchenware, clothing, food, cosmetics and the list goes on and on. And yes you do need to add them to Amazon and print a label and stick onto the products, then pop them all into some boxes and wave them good bye as the UPS driver drives off into the sunset to one of the Amazon warehouses in your country.

To many this all may seem a dream or even a con, but honestly it is not, this is a business model that has been around for many years and is earning people part and full time incomes. But as I said there is some work involved and a few best practices that you need to follow to make sure your items that you buy sell better and faster. And over the coming weeks and months we will look at these in depth. And also do videos so you can watch what I am doing.

But for now I would like to recommend a course that has helped many people achieve their goals of having their own business and being able of giving up their full time work.

PAC

 

And for those of you who sell on eBay, how would you like the same process to happen? Well for a lot of the items you sell you can also list on Amazon, send the items into Amazon and then when you make a sale on eBay, you just pop over to Amazon, click a few buttons and enter in the name and address of buyer and Amazon do your packing and shipping……. so now you need never shut your eBay shop down even when on holiday. (Please note there are some products you cannot do this with, and again this will be explained in depth, but if you have any questions please ask)

Well there we are Amazon really can change your life, the life of your family, give it a go and see the difference it can make.

What Are The Best Items To Start With On Amazon?

One of the popular questions I get as a Coach and Consultant in the world on e commerce is “What are the best items to start with on Amazon?” Now I know there are millions of products out there and still millions more being introduced to the market place on a regular pattern. But I am going to be open and honest with you some will hate this other will love it …………………… Books, yes that simple hubble pile of paper is what is best to start with.

Now before you think I have gone mad and what about this product or that product or have I not heard that so and so is selling like hot cakes, I have, but to most sellers new or semi new a lot of these cool products are out of their range, either on price, quantity they need to buy, or getting approval.

But when you boil it all down and crunch everything together Books really are the best items to start with on Amazon, they are easy to source and low cost to buy.

Books to stay away from……..

  • Fiction
  • Book Club
  • Most Paper Back books
  • Readers Digest Type books

The best books to source are ……..

  • Non fiction
  • Theology Books
  • Law Books
  • Cookery Books
  • Text Books
  • University Books
  • College Books

Where to source these books ……

  • Car Boot Sales
  • Estate Sales
  • Charity Shops
  • Thrift Stores
  • Family
  • Friends
  • Neighbours
  • Theology Colleges
  • Universities
  • Colleges
  • Adverts in Craigslist
  • Flyers
  • Cards on Notice Boards
  • Word of Mouth
  • And the list goes on and on

Over the coming weeks and months we will in depth of how and where to source, but for now spread your net far and wide and look for books everywhere

When you source remember buy as low as possible when making offers make low offers you can always come up on price if need be but you can never come down.

Never commit over phone or email to a price you are prepared to make as you do not know the condition of the book until you sell it.

Lastly always meet in a public place and tell someone where you are going and try to go with someone. Stay safe

Hope this short article has helped you think when you are wondering what are the best items to start with on Amazon.

Urgent Update

Hi

 

my site has recently been hacked and have lost over three years of content which I am sorry about but will be adding it back slowly after updating it

 

thanks

Thrifting Friday – Some Good Buys

 

Well today after spending sometime with one of my eBay Consulting clients I visited a few of the local charity shops and bought some items which I will be adding to my inventory. I shall be adding a new section to this blog of items I have either bought or sourced and what how well they have done on eBay.

As I have mentioned before I business relies on product sourcing and then sourcing the products at the right price. Yes it all comes down to the products and the right price (and selling them on the right platform, the place where the buyers are)

Today I spent around £50.00 on items, and once they have been listed and they have sold I will do a post and tell you all how they have done. But from time to time I will also do some live postings and show you how and why I chose an item to sell.

If you have sourced any items good or bad please share them with us over the coming days and weeks.

Time To Get Back To Work

 

Life as an eBay Consultant has it’s ups and downs over the holiday periods. As well as offering Consultancy and Training on subjects as eBay, Amazon and Etsy I am still very active in sourcing products for not only myself but for clients as well. Yes it can get very busy when you have to balance your own business along side the “demands of clients” and it is all fun and yes means working into the wee small hours but I do not mind as I love what I do, and love helping my clients take their businesses to the next level.

But as I mentioned before the holidays are now gone, and it is time to get back to normal and rank up our selling and of course this means if we want to sell we need to source products and this is such a great time to find products as people are selling off presents they no longer need or want and also sell off their older items as they were given a newer one.

Also very soon people will be getting their credit card and store card bills, and will be looking to make some extra cash – so keep your eyes and ears open for people looking to unload some products. Also remember if you are a Trading Assistant get your name out and about as people will be looking to make that extra money.very soon,

And one of the harder areas an eBay Consultant has is when they need to sit down with a client either old or new and say to the client is it time for the product they are selling is put to bed and a new product needs to be found. Yes at times we all need to look at what we are selling and ask ourselves is the product still selling like it did a year ago. It can be hard and stressful for all concerned, but the end results can be outstanding as the old product was holding them back.

So let’s get back to work and start making that money and grow our businesses to new heights.

Tool Tuesday – Evernote

 evernote-logo

As an eBay Consultant we are asked many different question, but if you asked all the eBay consultants around the world they could most likely group the questions in around 5 different groups. And one of the groups would be “Tools”. What tools do you use in your business to help you streamline your business and enable you to do as much as you do in a day or week.

Well I will let you into a little secret eBay consultants have 30 hours in their days……….I wish !!! No we all have tools and programs that we use on a daily basis to help us manage our time and activities. But before we get into this weeks chosen tool, I want to say if you are serious about your eBay (or Amazon / Etsy) business then you need a Smartphone one that is either on the iphone  or Android platform due to the many apps that there are to help you. I myself am using a Samsung Galaxy S on the Android platform and it is like an extra person in my business.

This weeks tool is called Evernote. This App works on both your phone (iPhone / Android) but it also sinks with your computer and as it is a web based program it can be asked from any computer in the world where there is an internet connection.

So what is Evernote ?

 

Evernote is like a notebook on super power. In simple terms you have almost unlimited notebooks and within those notebooks you can make notes. So for example you can have an eBay Notebook and then within that eBay notebook you can have notes such as product ideas, product sources, a new carriers name and address. You can also take photo’s and make audio notes and then tag them with keywords so that they are easy to find.

Then once you have made the note you just press sync on your phone and within seconds it is available  in the cloud. Let’s look at an example you are out sourcing products and make notes of a great product. You jot down names, costs where you saw it and take a quick picture. You press sync, and within seconds your contact back at home or the office has it on their laptop then again within seconds it can be shared with a friend in China and within a day you could have access to that product.

Yes you could just email the person but Evernote is far more powerful and is accessible far easier and can be shared far faster around the world. And the best bit it is free for the basic package and unless you are doing massive amounts of note taking the free version is all you need, but if you do need to upgrade to the premium version it is very affordable.

 

Another use of Evernote is the app that sits in the Google Chrome Browser. Again let’s say you come across some product ideas while you are surfing the net. In days gone by you would either have to print of sheets of paper or make notes which take time. Now you can just send the ideas to your phone or tablet. The video below shows you more what can be done.
