Well can you believe it, January is almost gone and before you know it it will be February then March. And in those two months we have three large and profitable buying periods, any guesses to what they are? Well let me tell you…………………
- Valentines Day
- Mother’s Day (UK)
I know what your thinking to yourself no way can it be Easter so soon we have only just got over Christmas, but I am afraid it is. And before you know it, it will be Summer. A scary thought and when you work in retail the months seem to fly by even faster as we are always working several months ahead so we can source, buy and send into Amazon ready for the start of the buying season.
A very common question I hear all the time is, but where do we find the products to buy to resell. Honestly these items are all around you. Walk into any shop in the UK (or world) and right there in front of you is the potential to make some money, we just need to scan the items with our phone and see what the app tells us.
Apps such as ScanPower, Amazon Sellers App and Profit Bandit are some of the best, right in front of our eyes we can see if the item we have scanned has the potential to make us some money on Amazon. Sometimes the answer is yes and other times the answer is no. When it is a no we can either put the item back on the shelf, or we can think to ourselves could we put this item into a bundle and still make money.
Bundles are a great way and very profitable way to make good money. They also help you stand out from the crowd and make your bundle listing unique. Over the coming weeks we will be looking at bundles and how by adding them to your business model you can take your business to the next level.
But before we can move into bundles you need to understand that there are millions of items out there in regular stores offline and online that have the potential to make us money day in and day out. As a reseller we need to be prepared to take action, go out or go online each day and spend some time finding those items.
If we are prepared to do this on a regular basis very soon you will breakout of the mindset of not being able to find items to sell to finding items jumping out that are saying buy me. So to start the ball rolling you need to just go and take action and start scanning.
