We've sold tens of millions of dollars in wholesale goods across numerous product categories on Amazon and eBay. We've also taught thousands how to do it themselves...and it's NOT complicated. Sourcing wholesale is a topic of confusion for many people, but not for those who have our ProvenAmazonCourse.com course! In this one episode Brett and Jim take on the challenge of sharing EVERYTHING they know on the topic of wholesale sourcing in a single episode. If that sounds a little far fetched, it means you really need to hear what they have to say!

If you are stuck in "product sourcing mode" or if you think that success on Amazon is all about the constant search for profitable products, think again. It's way easier than that and we have plenty of proof!

Have you sold tens of millions of private label products in multiple niche markets on Amazon yet? We have - and it's not complicated. Two of the hottest topics in the online selling world right now are "Private Label" products & the fear of account suspension. Today we put both those issues into perspective. We are so excited about the launch of an insurance policy that provides replacement insurance for any Amazon or online sellers who face a suspension issue!

Jan 23, 2017

If you know how to sell stuff on Amazon or eBay - or if you have some basic internet business skills, then you are sitting on a gold mine that you probably don't even recognize is there! You see, 98% of the population has no clue about how online business works, but everyone around you KNOWS that online business is the future of commerce. Without building a website, without learning any new "techie" skills and without even getting a business card for yourself you could quickly have paying clients using ONLY the strategies that we teach in this episode. Today Jim invites a friend of his who started on eBay and now has hundreds of paying clients around the world! This is an episode that we probably could have charged a lot of money for! You are going to love it! Special guest: Mike LeMoine - aka Fireman Mike.

Jim and Brett talk about their 8 figure online business and share what they've learned about building virtual teams in this episode.

It's never too early to start thinking intentionally about your team growth, and it's not expensive at al because the right people make you money - they don't cost you money!

Do you ever feel like there are more opportunities and good business ideas out there than you even have time to investigate? I can help! After helping thousands of entrepreneurs and online business building warriors like you since 2002 we've detected some patterns on how and why many of us wind up on dead ends. Many of us leap before we ask the most important basic questions about all those "good ideas" we run into. Today I have seven basic questions for you - ask them all before you leap!

  1. Is this a good fit for your current budget, schedule, talents, experience and connections?
  2. Will you be creatively serving others if you pursue this model? Is it something you’ll be proud to associate with?
  3. Does my spouse or the people who know me best think it’s a good fit for me?
  4. Are there others doing well with this model that I can follow? What’s their success rate? Are they available to answer questions and help me?
  5. Are there major trends or outside forces that make this a good/bad idea?
  6. Can it be expanded, automated or lead to other bigger and better income streams as it grows?
  7. Is the opportunity cost unrealistic? In other words, What do I have to give up to pursue this?

What are the key traits we've observed over and over again among those who continue to grow their online businesses consistently to new levels? Is there any such thing as "enough success" in an online business where you can simply coast and relax? What does each stage look like as your business grows and what does it take to get to each new level?

Jim talks about all that and more in this episode!

Email marketing is boring old news to some, but it's the CORE of success for all of my top clients and my own multiple income stream businesses. My partner is growing multiple HUGE mailing lists right now and we've never stopped loving email! One of my clients just had a $1million week and credits email! If you don't have an email list tied to your online business then you have a business that could possibly vanish in an instant. The most valuable asset you can ever have is a list of people who WANT to hear from you and it's not complicated to get started. It's not nearly as much work as you might be thinking either! No matter what business you are in off or online, you need to be thinking about email marketing. Don't be nervous about getting dropped by eBay, Google, Facebook or Amazon. Grow your own audience! Let's talk about it.

Is the act of buying widgets for $10 and selling them for $80 a MORAL and valuable service or not? It's certainly one of the lowest hanging fruit business models of our time and many people in our community are succeeding wildly with this model, but is "buying low and selling high online" a VIRTUOUS business model or is it "price gouging"? Let's talk about it! (for details on this biz model see episode #6)
