So, how are your plans going for your eCommerce business? The reason why I am asking you this question right now is because we are half way through the month of may and very soon we will be entering into June – Yes half way through 2016. How scary is that?
And then the clock is ticking away until that mad selling season of October, November, December. Or more commonly know to sellers around the world as Q4. For some sellers ,they can make as much money in those 12 weeks as they do all throughout the year. But it does come with some challenges –
- Enough Stock,
- Forward Planning And Thinking,
- All The Dots Joined Together
- Enough Help To Get Stock Prepped And Sent In
- And Other Things…………………………….
So when do you need to get the ball rolling? The basic answer is, as soon as possible.
For now, I would suggest :
- You attend Trade Shows,
- Look online for wholesalers,
- Open accounts with wholesalers
Then do your research so that when you get to September you are ready to get those orders placed, prepped and sent into Amazon, ready for that crazy buying period. Also, I would be talking to some smaller suppliers and wholesalers asking about getting exclusive deals. (I will be doing some posts about exclusive deals and how to get them and how profitable an exclusive deal can be)
Help this helps, any question please ask.

Well can you believe it we are almost at the end of May, here in the UK it is another long weekend with the Monday being a bank holiday. Other the past few weeks I have been looking at different parts of my buisness, and am taking some bold steps in some areas and closing down parts of my business (do not worry, not my online or training side). By doing this has freed up some time that I want to put to use by offering my training / consulting services to my readers.
How Will This All Work
Well to start with I have freed up 12 hours a month, and want to use this time to help you in the world of online selling. These 12 hours will be broken down into 12 slots a month. Now You can buy just one slot, or you could buy a block of two or more. You can do this as a one off or every month it is up to you.
How Much Will It Cost
Now I would love to do this free of charge, but like you I am running a business, with overheads, bills to be paid, so there will be a charge per hour of $75.00. (Now of course if you do decide to buy multiple blocks of time a month, or want to have an hour a month spread over several months, we will see what can be done. But the basic fee is $75.00 per hour.
If you wish to go ahead please send me an email to info@MyAuctionEmpires.com with a list of dates and times that you can make. Also please email a list of questions that you need help with. (Please note if there is a subjuct I do not know anything about I will tell you and try and put you in touch with someone who knows about your subject – Hope that sounds fair.
I will then email you back with the time that suits us best from your choice. Along with that email will be a paypal invoice for the time you have booked.
The PayPal invoice needs to be paid before the calls can take place.
How Are The Calls Made
@ I will phone you at my expense that is only fair as you have paid money to me.
@ The Calls will be by phone, or skype.
Looking forward to working with you all over the next few weeks and months.
