    Why does it seem that most wholesale brand owners will tell you "no" if you ask them to sell their items on Amazon? In today's episode, we'll break down why most brand owners don't like Amazon sellers to sell their inventory on Amazon and the step-by-step process of turning that "no" into an enthusiastic "yes!" Not only will we share the steps that you need to take to convince a brand owner for you to sell their items on Amazon, but we'll also let you in on one of the greatest secrets to wholesale selling success: you actually want the brand owners to tell Amazon sellers "no" when they reach out to open wholesale accounts. Once you learn this secret, you'll be light years ahead of other sellers who simply give up when a wholesale brand owner refuses to let you sell their items on Amazon.

    Mike and Dave ponder EcomCrew's early years as they bid a bittersweet goodbye to the company's first employee.   July was an interesting month. For me, my top line number went down, but my bottom line number went up – thanks to reduced PPC costs, raised product prices, and AGL.   Dave, on the other hand, rants about the ridiculous sales tax being imposed on businesses based in British Columbia.   We also discuss our takes on 3PL, which Dave and I are approaching very differently: I'm slowly weaning off of it, while Dave is heavily reliant on it (for an inevitable yet valid reason).   In more devastating news: Abby, EcomCrew's employee #1 and brand manager is leaving us. This was bound to happen eventually, but it still feels very sad that it's actually happening.   That concludes our July Brand Report. It's definitely going to be challenging without Abby and we'll miss her for sure, but that's life. We wish her all the best in her journey.   We never have enough time on the podcast to cover everything in our Brand Report, so if you want to see the full-length report, check out the blogpost here. As always, don't forget to leave us a review over on iTunes if you enjoy our content. Happy selling and we'll see you in the next one!

    It's no secret that Amazon's marketplace is growing incredibly quickly. With so many new brands entering the fray, how can sellers make their listings stand out in such a saturated market? For Mina Elias, a 7-figure Amazon seller, the answer lay in making efficient use of Amazon's advertising platforms. As his expertise in this area grew, so did requests from fellow sellers asking Mina to optimize their advertising campaigns.  This inspired Mina to create Trivium Group, an Amazon advertising agency that specializes in PPC and DSP advertising campaigns, helping sellers get their products in front of shoppers, earn more money, and grow their businesses. In this episode, Mina joins us to discuss Amazon DSP campaigns, an often overlooked advertising option. He guides us through the differences between DSP and PPC campaigns, the best time for businesses to start making use of DSP, and the risks and rewards of using this promotional tool. We also dive into the secrets behind Mina's entrepreneurial success, including how he grew his business from 3 employees to 30 in one year and the systems he uses to help him manage his team. According to Mina,  “The number one hack I've figured out as a business owner is that using consultants is a great time-saving shortcut that can help you grow your business incredibly fast. For example, I can learn how to do Google Ads in three months, but with just six one-hour consultations with a Google Ads consultant, I can be just as good.” If you want the inside scoop on how to create a winning Amazon DSP strategy, then this is an episode you don't want to miss out on!  Want a free PPC audit from Trivium?

So super excited to have you back with us Danny. Also, we have a great guest with us. Mister Adam Shaffer Atom by Atom is the President of Omni channel distribution, and those guys are approaching Amazon and E-commerce in a completely different way than than most other people out there. So I'm excited to dig in and kind of learn what you guys do, and we can kinda get into the weeds about what makes somebody successful on the platform, and, and all around, how do you grow in this space that's becoming more crowded. So Adam, welcome to the show. Let's, let's kind of dig in and how did you become the president of omnichannel distribution? Well, first of all, thanks for having me on the show. I'm really excited to be here and great to meet you guys. I'm you know, really interested in what you guys also do in addition to, you know, talking about and bringing information to the Amazon sellers. So I think, you know, thank you for that. I'm the President of omnichannel distribution. And we are a brand accelerator for e-commerce marketplaces. Predominantly Amazon, because it's the biggest in the US and really in North America. But we do help brands on Wal-Mart and e-bay and some niche marketplaces also. We do also help with Shopify sites where that's needed. But, the big, the big focus is much more Amazon than anything else, and we work with brands that are known brands. We work with brands that are mid-sized brands and up and coming and then we work with, you know, brand new brands. We don't care if it's private label. We don't care if it's a well-known brand. We care if there's a story to be told about the brand. And if the brand owners are passionate about the brand and it, you know, if they're looking for growth and brand protection and acceleration. So, we're not really, the guy said, build and create the new products. Although, you know, we've done a bunch of our own in the past. We really prefer to work with brands and where it's hard to be an expert at everything. And today you have to be an expert in so many different areas of the cycle to be really good at Amazon. You know, we're there to help, no. So that's what we do. We have about 30 different brands under management.

There are sellers on Amazon who use what we call black hat tactics, including going after other sellers. It can be a difficult place. ..." Lesley Hensell, Making Conversations Count - (August 2022) Psst! Low on data? Here's a lower bandwidth version for you. Selling on Amazon is not quite the mystery that the successful sellers would have you believe... Ask anyone who has a part time drop Amazon FBA seller business (drop shipping) what tactics they use to get sales and they'll probably be less than willing to share any insight. Selling on Amazon is a very competitive game. That's one of the reasons why we're so shocked that Lesley Hensell has been so willing to spill the tea on this for us. We can't promise you a six figure ecommerce business just from listening to it. But we certainly can promise you the insight and knowledge you'll need in order to make the right decisions on how to start or grow your business selling on Amazon.

You have to set it up the exact same way you would set up a traditional business. You cannot say, oh, just because I'm running this out of my house or my basement or the back of my storefront, that it's not a real business. You need to register your business, you need to set up good bookkeeping, you need to have a tax accountant, you need to set up that, if that's relevant, where you are located. You have to do all of the right things because the pitfall a lot of newer sellers fall into is that they will not know their numbers, so they won't find out if they have made or lost money until they close the books at the end of the year. They don't close their books monthly, they don't track their expenses well...." Click here for the full transcript What IS Making Conversations Count?

He is a Board Member and Investor in Mamenta, Davinci Micro Fulfillment, and MAVI.io. Before his current roles, James was the Chief Strategy Officer at Buy Box Experts, a company that offers premium Amazon services to medium-sized and large-sized brands around the world to optimize and grow their businesses.  James continues to immerse himself in the world of Amazon issues. Before Buy Box, he served as the Business Head of Amazon Services — a division of Amazon responsible for recruiting 10s of 1000s of sellers annually to the marketplace. He also served as the First Account Manager for Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA). Before Amazon, James was a management consultant and banker. In this episode… When it comes to the eCommerce M&A (mergers and acquisitions) space, investing in Amazon aggregator brands can be profitable. Yet, these collectors often lack the strategies to manage and scale their companies effectively, resulting in debt and profit loss. So, how can you facilitate the aggregator business model to optimize your portfolio? When acquiring a portfolio company, you must first develop an M&A strategy to maximize profit. This requires analyzing your portfolio and the price point to determine if the acquisition is right for you. When rebuilding a brand after purchase, it's essential to recruit strong operational teams that understand Amazon's policies and growth prospects. By strategically preparing for your investment and developing the appropriate standard operating procedures, you can leverage aggregators for your portfolio. In this episode of The Digital Deep Dive, Aaron Conant talks with James Thomson, the Managing Partner at Equity Value Advisors, about the current Amazon aggregator market. James explains the requirements and challenges of the aggregator business model, strategies for optimizing your investment portfolio, and how to drive growth in acquired companies.

Alex and Tom are business partners in their Amazon FBA business, where they build brands that create and sell physical products through Amazon, generating six figures a month in revenue.

    In this yearly review episode, Dave gives an update on how his brand's been doing the past year, from feeling the fallout of a post-pandemic market to increased competition in the niche.   I did the first one of these annual reviews on July 17, 2017. It's kind of surreal how fast time flies. I've always enjoyed these because it makes me take an objective look at my brand.   Businesses in certain niches certainly benefited from the lockdown, us included. With people choosing to do more outdoor activities then, we saw a spike in our sales the first two years into the pandemic.   However, as the world slowly opened up again and travel resumed, our revenue went down. I'm sure other businesses in this niche are experiencing this as well.   The past year wasn't all that bad though. We had our losses, but we had awesome wins too. I've also set some goals for the company that I hope will come to fruition in the coming months.   Check out the highlights from this episode:  Intro - 0:00 June 2022 revenue - 2:52 The Covid bump - 3:31 Increased competition - 6:17 Decline in TACoS - 8:56 Our massive hit product - 12:29 Finding a good fulfillment system in Canada - 15:30 New hires from the Philippines - 16:30 Developing a custom inventory software - 17:40 Our losses the past year - 19:20 My goals for the next 12 months - 21:25   That's it for my year-in-review podcast episode. Thanks for tuning in and I hope you were able to take away a thing or two from this brief discussion.   I also did a blogpost where I elaborate more on these points in detail over at ecomcrew.com.

    Today one of my favorite clients and friends, Michelle Maple, returns to the show to talk about how she went from zero to six figures in her first fourteen months on Amazon. Michelle started her business doing retail arbitrage in September 2018, and she opens the episode by discussing how she transitioned from that to wholesale bundling (with a little help from my courses!) within six months. She describes feeling that arbitrage took up too much time with “running errands” and instead being drawn to the creative and research aspects of bundling. Michelle also talks about changing the structure of her business to a one-person operation and deciding to scale back in order to find a good work/life balance. She recommends using checklists to keep on top of all the steps needed when listing and developing a routine and a schedule to help keep you on track when you're feeling scattered or overwhelmed. Next, Michelle shares some of her figures from this year, during which she's already done six figures, and her goals as we move into Q4 and holiday season. Then we discuss the importance of actively considering how you can become more excellent at your business and whether slowing down would benefit you in the long run. Michelle also advises those new to bundling and maybe overthinking things to take the step forward and put their bundles out there because your best learning only happens after you send them. And we close out the episode with Michelle's advice to maintain a flexible mindset toward change so that you're ready and willing to adapt whenever Amazon changes the rules. You can hear other success stories and share your own in the Amazon Files and Mommy Income community.

You actually gave yourself space to figure out the next step while the numbers are dropping. And that's perfectly okay. As a matter of fact, that's awesome and healthy.” - Kristin Ostrander Quotes: “I was literally in Disney World when my phone dinged for the first time, and I had a sale, and it was like, ‘Well, this is cool. Here I am in the happiest place on Earth, and I'm selling something.'” “One of the things that I've learned is the parts of the business that I try to just push through and force are the ones that come back to smack me upside the head and say, ‘Nope, you didn't do this right, and that's not gonna work.'” “I do feel like there's a lot of hats, and it is hard to escape. I just try to tell myself, whatever piece or whatever moment I'm in, just trying to be in that moment because I'm not going to do anything very well if I'm not.” “I think for the new people and those that are overthinking, you have to start somewhere. You're not going to learn all of this in your office by yourself with nothing listed.

    International expansion is a great way to scale your Amazon business, but many sellers don't speak the local language of the market they are trying to infiltrate.  To solve this problem, sellers use software like Google Translate to help them translate their existing sales copy, but according to Jana Krekic, this approach often hurts sellers more than it helps them.   Jana is the founder and CEO of YLT Translations, an agency that helps Amazon sellers translate their listings, sales copy, and keyword research to suit various foreign markets. Jana believes that human-based translations help sellers to better navigate the nuances of foreign languages in a way that software cannot.  In this episode, we discuss the language differences that often trip sellers up, the pros and cons of using AI to generate your sales copy, and the international rules and regulations sellers should be aware of. We also discuss the risks and rewards of international expansion, which countries to expand into first, and the steps sellers should take to ensure a smooth transition into foreign marketplaces. According to Jana, “If you want to enter an international Amazon marketplace, the number one thing you should do is market research. That is crucial. After that, you should focus on creating keyword-driven content. The Amazon content rules are less strict in Europe than in the US, so you can use that to your advantage.”  Lastly, Jana shares some insights into Amazon's expansion plans, including the new countries they will be launching marketplaces in, and the opportunities this creates for Amazon sellers around the world.  If you have set your sights on global expansion, then listen in to this conversation to find out how to conquer foreign Amazon marketplaces.

How did you become the Scott Needham of today? Where did you start, and bring us, bring us up to date, Scott. Sure. Thanks for having me. Uh, on the show. So, my background. Computer engineering, you know, I spent way too long in school learning about things that I don't use completely today, But I did learn how to program. And so, while I have been selling the law for a long time on Amazon, it's actually always from the capacity of a software developer, or either building, you know, automation and inventory management. Because in 20 12, there were no tools. There was no community, there was no, like, you know, so we kind of had to build things from scratch. My brother was scaling a wholesale business to over, I think, when I joined was already a eight million a year, and then got to, where we built, that's about 50 to 60 million a year. And with software, actually was less stressful when we are bigger than like, When we were small, so. a big believer in technology. and using very, you know, very slight changes to To improve your business. Yeah, that's amazing. So. So you kind of came from the computer science world and the data world right, and then you, you stepped into your brother's business where he was building a business and you got to see kind of the Amazon opportunity. Is that kind of where you kind of dip your toes in? Yeah. I mean, you don't spend a lot of time on Amazon to like, see it as a huge opportunity. Yeah. It's like just the sheer number of products. The volume, and I was kinda hooked on, if you know, most people can remember some of their first sales online, I think my first one was the i-pod Nano, I think like the fourth generation.

After several setbacks, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.   For me, I worked on improving my margins, which included taking out an Amazon loan and fully transitioning to AGL. It's definitely a tedious process, but worth it.   If you listened to our May Brand Report podcast, you'll recall that one of Dave's brands had an IPI score teetering below the required threshold.

    Today, I'm welcoming back one of my favorite guests, Scott Zilke, aka The Bearded Picker, an expert in Amazon FBA and eBay flipping. First up, Scott tells us what he's been up to in the last few months, including changing his business model, reworking his eBay store, and redesigning his storage setup. Then we chat about our shared love of thrifting and yard sales, and both of us emphasize the importance of finding a balance between making money and having fun, something that's much easier when you do what you love and delegate what you don't (Scott recommends hiring an accountant!). We also talk in detail about the processes involved in yard sales, estate sales, and auctions (both online and in-person) and emphasize that knowledge is a weapon you can wield to your advantage, whether that's how the business of flipping works or what items are particularly valuable in a specific market. Scott then discusses the importance of looking forward, knowing where your audience is going, and embracing change to ensure you don't lag behind and give yourself every profit-making opportunity possible. And finally, we wrap up the episode by focusing on the importance of surrounding yourself with a positive and supportive community and trying to push out the negative. Life is too short to be miserable, so stop waiting for the perfect time, follow your passion, and spend time with the people you love. You can learn more about thrifting and auctions in the Amazon Files and Mommy Income community.

This week on the Amazon Files: Scott's background and what he's been up to recently Finding the balance between business and fun  Yard sales, auctions, estate sales, and thrifting Using knowledge to your advantage Being forward-looking in business and life “If you're going to be an entrepreneur, you don't do it for the money. That's part of it, but you do it for the passion, you do it because you can't do anything else because nothing else suits you.” - Kristin Ostrander Quotes: “I kept telling people, do what you love, do what you love, but the light never came on. It finally… I was selling some stuff, I'm like, why am I doing the dropshipping for somebody else whenever I can be making all the profit? And that was where the light came on.” “One thing I have preached and I've tried not to do is never, never rule, never, never legislate out in your business the fun part. You've got to have fun, you got to enjoy this. There's a reason you do this, and you made it into your business, but the accounting, all that crazy stuff can drag you down, you've got to have the fun stuff.” “If you sit around and complain and moan and groan, you're behind everybody else who's going, ‘You know what? I can do this and that.' These new rules, you adapt to the new rules.” “I'm a firm believer that, you know, find the remote, find the cable, find the whatever because they're not gonna charge you. There's a VCR there, they're not gonna charge you any extra with a remote or without the remote. But you sell it for a lot more money on eBay or Amazon with the remote.” “Follow your passion, do what you love, surround yourself with positive people. You only get one shot at this go-around. Make what's important to you.” Related Content: 2022 Workshops - Coupon code: workshop50 Wholesale Bundle System Graphic Rhythm Design Email questions Learn With Us Coaching The Amazon Files Hub Grow Your Amazon Business!

    Here's a reality check: there's more to life than just money. Amazon seller and aspiring personal development coach Jonathan Jesper shares his story of grit and resilience.   Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, I am very much aware of how unstable and unpredictable life in the business can be. The journey is never linear.   Fellow Vegasite Jonathan Jesper, who has never had a job, has been an entrepreneur his whole life – and he's no stranger to failure.   He lived in a van straight out of high school; went to college and then dropped out; and eventually, as he described, “failed into ecommerce.”   Jonathan's life as an entrepreneur is quite the story. From selling flowers at high school graduations to running his own Amazon business, he certainly knows the hustle.   Check out the highlights from this episode:  Intro - 0:00 Background on Jonathan - 2:16 Jonathan's early years as an entrepreneur - 3:20 Benefits of traveling - 6:19 Being “stuck” in our beliefs - 7:32  Transitioning to ecommerce - 9:46  Inventing a market - 13:04  Dealing with failure - 16:01 The relativity of success - 20:42  The blueprint of life - 23:16 Connecting the dots - 30:36 Helpful resources - 34:14   That was a great and insightful conversation, Jonathan.

    Amazon businesses are among the most "sellable" types of business in 2022. Huge investment firms are acquiring multiple brands per month at 6, 7, and 8 figure payouts. But lots of the aggregators have been laying off employees and slowing down acquisitions. Have the golden days of selling Amazon accounts passed us by? According to Greg Elfrink, yes and no. A good Amazon account will still get a crazy multiple, but one that's making these mistakes will have a harder time selling. Unfortunately, a lot of Amazon sellers don't realize they're cannibalizing their future business sale multiple. In this episode of the Actualize Freedom Podcast, we dive into everything you need to ensure your business can sell for the most money possible, no matter what the market is doing.Check out their website: https://empireflippers.com/
