Once per week or so our Amazon seller leadership team and I love to go live on Zoom with whoever can join us and answer as many ecommerce and Amazon selling related questions as possible. We love to capture the best moments from these Monday night sessions for you and turn them into a podcast episode.

 

Jim shares how the team has coached over 10,000 students and there are so many success stories pinned at the top of the My Silent Team Facebook page! Jim discusses how we start practically all new sellers with the Replens Model - which basically means we are filling the underserved shelf space at Amazon. Jim likes to use the phrases “test worthy listings” or sell at break even (worst case scenario). Jim has posted MANY examples.

 

A guest shares how she is building her business but is discouraged with her profits so she asks Jim how she can improve her numbers. Picking losers is a great way to pick winners!” - it’s a learning process! Robin Joy discusses the Kick Start Bootcamp, which is 4 group coaching sessions for sellers who have purchased The Proven Amazon Course (PAC) to help them get up and running The listener asks Jim if the “new selection recommendation list” (a list of ASINs that Amazon provides) is a good idea to use? Jim explains how there are “good ways” and “bad ways” to use these lists as well as leads lists/buy lists.

 

The guest has questions about shipments going to multiple fulfillment centers (FC), which Coach Robin Joy answers. Jim also answers the guest’s questions about hiring a VA, Jim recommends listening to Podcast #714 for a more thorough discussion!: “Very practical lesson learned after working with numerous overseas virtual assistants who help run my business.”

 

Jim, head of Coaching Matt Thompson and Coach Jim is so excited about 2024 and shares several new and upcoming things that everyone can look forward to! Matt Thompson and Robin Joy discuss the pros and cons of The 100 ASIN challenge vs coaching in response to a guest’s question.

 

The guest asks Jim about an issue he is having when he sends his inventory into FBA. He mentions how the “fear points” that sellers have are often new opportunities to learn from! Coach Matt shares the following mantra when working with replens: “Some will, most won’t, next…” 

 

Jim answers a listener's question, “I’m new, what do I do here?” Watch the following modules in the PAC: 1) Amazon 2) The Replens Course 3) Advanced Keepa training. Jim explains what the Replens model is and that the Kick Start program can be joined at any point once the PAC is purchased!

Feb 22, 2024

For a few years now we've had a strategy we've loved sharing with our ProvenAmazonCourse.com and coaching students that interestingly seems to be more easily grasped by our students who have LESS Amazon selling experience.

 

Experienced sellers seem to struggle with this "above the buy box" concept because it's so simple that it goes over their heads quite often as they attempt to over complicate it!

 

A bit of background:

Did you know that every day on Amazon millions of shoppers are NOT looking for the lowest price on any given product, but they are looking for the FASTEST DELIVERY! Once you understand that Amazon has nearly 200 warehouses around the U.S. it starts to make sense that there's no way these various warehouses can meet the speed demands of the millions of shoppers without help.

 

Understanding these factors means there's a simple, massive opportunity right under your nose that you're almost certainly ignoring unless you've heard our "above the buy box" strategy explained. Today's episode breaks it down for you!

 

At the end of this episode you'll hear from someone who has been in ecommerce 26 years who has an incredible business model that I'm eager to share with you - you can also come meet our guest "Brandon" in Orlando at the upcoming TheProvenConference.com event in May! Stay tuned until the end of the show for our short discussion.

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of https://JeffSchick.com answers the question: Can I trust the advice I get from account health reps at Amazon?

Feb 19, 2024

If there's one rule of thumb with ecommerce it's this:

Things are always changing.

 

There's one business model however that we have been bullish about for the past 6+ years and we continue to be increasingly excited about for the future as Amazon needs sellers with this skills set more and more!

 

The evidence is strong as student success stories continue to roll in! I'm talking about the REPLENS business model as taught in the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course.

 

Perhaps you've heard many of the 100's of success stories from the students of the Proven Amazon Course REPLENS strategy on our podcast, but did you know that we've recently made major investments into updating the "PAC" course? We've been adding dozens of new, specific strategies as well as overhauling the "tech" to help make your experience as an Amazon selling student as powerful and prosperous as possible!

 

Today I spend time talking to Jimmy Smith who is the leader on our team who systemized the REPLENS model nearly 5 years ago. We talk about what we've learned and how we've made your odds of success with the models we teach even better with the big recent changes we've made.

 

We also have news for you about the coming live event in May (TheProvenConference.com) as well updates on the other unique services we provide Amazon sellers and the ecommerce community we serve.

Feb 17, 2024

In today's weekend episode we have highlights of a prior show. In this segment we discuss both our Amazon Influencer training and our Branded Bundles training. We also include the benefits of attending our annual live event. 

 

We covered episode #731 - While recovering 18 months from back surgery, she built incredible Amazon income streams. The full episode can be heard at https://silentjim.com/podcast

 

Jim tells listeners how they can get a free copy of his updated book - Silent Sales Machine by texting the word “free” to 507-800-0090 or visiting https://silentsalesmachine.com/ssm11/ffv11

 

The guest discusses how she started her Amazon business with a Private label branded bundle item. It’s important to note that it’s NOT recommended that new sellers start with PL. Both Jim’s free podcast, as well as The Proven Amazon Course (PAC), are great places for newer sellers to start. 

 

The guest discusses her background and how she got into e-commerce to begin with and then how Covid, followed by a big back surgery, launched her into being a business building warrior through the many challenges she faced. The guest shares about her mastermind group and how they work together, collaborate, help and encourage each other. Jim discusses the https://provenazinfluencer.com course and the https://provenbrandedbundles.com course. 

 

The guest is utilizing both of these models as streams of income Jim and the guest discuss the Amazon Influencer Program in more detail using Amazon’s platform Jim and the guest discuss the upcoming Proven conference - May 23-25, 2024. More information can be found at: https://theprovenconference.com.

 

The guest highlights benefits from attending a past conference - building relationships, learning content and identifying areas she wants to learn more about. Jim discusses “right ideas” vs “good ideas.” The guest also discusses the combination of being a brand owner as well as a an influencer, at which point Jim has a lightbulb moment how these two courses complement each other.

 

Jim asks the guest to share why she feels The Proven Conference stands above other conferences: 

1) it digs deep on content in a way you can move your business forward (as opposed to superficial teaching)

2) some changes are needed with the timing of the VIP program and

3) some suggestions for an “inspiration track!” The guest really encourages new sellers to join a mastermind and Jim emphasizes turning our focus outward to help others! On the Facebook page, there are directions in one of the top videos on how to find others who live close to you!

Today's guest is a ProvenAmazonCourse.com student and coaching client who has made just about every mistake you can make on his way to building a successful Amazon business!

 

He's failed at drop shipping, sourcing from Alibaba, paying for "done for you", trying to do an MLM with Amazon etc. all while working a full time job.

 

So many CLASSIC red flags... but now he's seeing stability and growth and he's loving the process!

 

If you'd like to hear what NOT TO DO as well as WHAT WORKS on Amazon, this is a great episode for you!

 

He's also using the "sell above buy box" Amazon strategy that has been coming up a LOT in our community lately!

On today's "coaches corner" episode of the podcast we discuss the reality of finding enough winning/test-worthy asinHow many ASINs do you need to make a car payment? A house payment?s to help make a real dent in your monthly budget.

 

We all started small and built over time - this episode breaks down the reality of the Amazon selling models we've taught to 1,000s of students.

 

We also dive into topics that are popular with our Amazon seller coaching students such as; which of our training offers are right for you? We offer everything from FREE resources to "work close with a highly successful student one-on-one" and everything in between! What makes sense for you?

 

Also discussed; the compounding effect of CONSISTENCY and FREQUENCY in your efforts to scale your ecommerce business effectively, as well as the simple process of setting up your Amazon selling account to make sales to businesses which will improve your overall results without any additional effort on your part.

Today's new podcast episode is a great ProvenAmazonCourse.com success story who built his business while in college and quickly had a $40k/month business - but that's not where he stopped!

 

He noticed a need in our seller community and he built a service to help deal with any returned inventory so that sellers would not have to worry about it themselves. It's a great example of how diligence with Amazon always leads to additional opportunity!

Today's guest: Will Abrams

Feb 10, 2024

Once per week or so our Amazon seller leadership team and I love to go live on Zoom with whoever can join us and answer as many ecommerce and Amazon selling related questions as possible. We love to capture the best moments from these Monday night sessions for you and turn them into a podcast episode.

 

From the team highlights:

Jim talks about the My Silent Team Facebook page which now has 74,000 members strong! The purpose of this Facebook group is to teach creative ways to make money online with Amazon as the primary focus because ½ of all online transactions occur on Amazon.com! Replens is the base model our group teaches for new sellers! The Proven Amazon Course is a learning library - “for on time learning!” 100% of JIm’s income has been via e-commerce for the past 20 years! Jim’s podcast, Silent Sales Machine Radio, is completely free to listen to. If interested in pursuing coaching, SilentJim.com/bookacall for more info

 

 

Jim discusses his good friend, Rabbi Daniel Lapin, and highly recommends his new book called The Holistic You - which integrates the 5 F’s - faith, family, fitness, finance and friendship:

https://www.amazon.com/Holistic-You-Integrating-Finances-Friendships/dp/1394163487

 

The conference will be held May 2024 in Orlando, FL! https://theprovenconference.com for more information! Jim feels this is one of the best Amazon conferences available because the people teaching the classes are actual Amazon sellers themselves and speak from personal selling experience!

 

Jim explains that about 95% of new sellers start by looking at Amazon selling through the wrong lens - a mindset shift is needed to look for “testworthy ASINs” as opposed to “profitable products!” Jim uses a bag of marshmallows as an example to illustrate how a new seller can look for test worthy ASINs. Jim also discusses the Kick Start Boot Camp (for PAC members) which includes 4 group coaching sessions with Coach Robin Joy for about $40!

 

Jim talks through an example of a profitable ASIN involving tea and recommends Podcast #369 to learn more about Keepa!

 

Jim explains his process for pricing (set price and leave it for 30-45 days) and then lower it to break even to get it moving if needed. Jim recommends listeners check out Podcast #554 - Ignore The Amazon “buy box” if you want to sell more Amazon Replens

 

Coach Robin Joy recommends the following categories for new sellers which tend to be open and a great place to start - home and kitchen, office supplies, arts and crafts, pet supplies (not food), patio, lawn and garden, industrial and scientific. Jim explains that as new sellers get 30-40 sales under their belt, Amazon will start to trust them and sellers will naturally become ungated in more categories!

 

The guest discusses difficulties he is having as an international seller with his billing (LLC address) and shipping addresses (prep center) not matching and as a result, having a hard time getting ungated in Lego (and a different home address on file with Amazon). Jim talks through thoughts he has on this topic and recommends both the International Selling Course in the PAC and asking for help in the free FB group

 

Jim answers some FBA prep and ship questions regarding which items can go in a box together as well as expiration dates

 

Jim answers some questions regarding a newer course - www.ProvenBotSourcing.com and also mentions www.Profitseekerpro.com. Jim and the guest also discuss systems and how they help automate your business!

 

Jim discusses the Keepa graph and how far back in time sellers need to go in order to decide if it is a test worthy ASIN. Jim discusses avoiding listings that are on lead lists and have a significant rise in sellers happening. Personally, he looks back 6-9 months in general and a year if it’s a seasonal item to get a good idea of the selling history

 

Jim was personally invited to the Amazon Accelerate Conference and had the opportunity to ask questions at the director level of Amazon! (with Claire O’Donnell)

 

Jim discusses how Amazon divides sellers into 2 categories - those who are selling their own brand and those who are selling others’ brands

 

Jim discusses how about 95% of the time it is best to sell FBA. The premise of the guest’s question is really when to also include FBM. Jim’s opinion is that new sellers should really focus on FBA while learning the Amazon system

Feb 8, 2024

Today's guest is a busy pastors wife with five kids with no prior business or ecommerce experience, but she's carved out some time to build an incredible business on Amazon using the REPLENS model as taught in the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course. She started out selling books (which didn't ultimately work out as you'll hear), but she soon learned of REPLENS and went on to get some impressive results! She's doing so great that we are bringing her onto the team as a coach!

Feb 7, 2024

Our Wednesday podcast episodes are typically coaches corner episodes. This means we dive into the common issues faced by the ProvenAmazonCourse.com students in our community.

 

Today we discuss what to do about ASINs that drop in price, and we also discuss options for using prep centers to create a more hands-free selling operation.

 

If you haven’t registered for our May 2024 event - TheProvenConference.com event, VIP tickets are going fast! We will have over 40 great breakout sessions at this event on all manner of creative ecommerce strategies - including the latest incredible Amazon and Walmart selling strategies pioneered in this community!

 

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: If I source IDENTICAL product at a discount from another country, can I sell it in the US on Amazon? What should I look out for when doing this?

It's always great to catch up with past guests to our podcast and see how they are doing! The last time we interviewed Ted he was a new ProvenAmazonCourse.com student who had just seen his first $7K sales month with REPLENS.

 

On today's episode we catch up with him a year later and he's just had his first $100K month! That's great progress! He's also a new coach on our team with plenty of practical strategies and tips for all of us.

 

You'll learn how he sources, what strategies he's using and some very practical lessons for all Amazon sellers and ecommerce warriors on today's episode! We also discuss his upcoming role at the TheProvenConference.com event in May - we hope you can join us!

Today's guest : Ted Harton

Feb 3, 2024

Once per week or so our Amazon seller leadership team and I love to go live on Zoom with whoever can join us and answer as many ecommerce and Amazon selling related questions as possible. We love to capture the best moments from these Monday night sessions for you and turn them into a podcast episode.

 

Jim discusses the My Silent Team Facebook page and how the hundreds of inspirational successes are posted so new sellers can see that this works! It is easy for new sellers to become distracted with different business models but this group really emphasizes the Replens model as the place to start! This is not a get rich quick scheme but something that takes time to build and succeed with!

 

In this segment, Jim talks about what our group is, what we have to offer and why we’re worth listening to!

 

Jim discusses how he has used the internet creatively for his multiple streams of income, which has supported his family for over 20 years!

 

The guest asks Jim a question about being able to source a large enough quantity of products in the store to be able to test an ASIN (Retail Arbitrage = RA). Jim also reminds the listeners how important relationships are in this business!

 

Although the Proven Conference 2023 has already happened, Jim discusses what the conference looks like and how it really is an “abundance minded community” - lots of relationships developed, friendships began and conversations had! 

(https://theprovenconference.com/ for all the information you need for the 2024 conference!)

 

Jim discusses ungating and how ungated categories include: Sports and outdoor, household goods, kitchen and bath, office supplies, pet supplies (not food) and arts and crafts. New sellers can also go to the magnifying glass on the top of the My Silent Team Facebook page and search for “ungating” or “ungated” to read many posts on this topic!

 

https://provenamazoncourse.com/safebookprofits/ for a course on a newer way to sell books! Jim also gives a powerful example of the Nike brand and an experience on Amazon that all sellers should listen to!

 

Jim discusses the Replens model and how it can be a very profitable business model! According to Jim, “It’s a beautiful business model!”

Today's guest is a ProvenAmazonCourse.com and coaching student living in (and from) Bangkok. He's followed the REPLENS training and has built an amazing business as you'll soon hear.

 

I was blown away at his unique approach and how he's overcome what some would see as merely obstacles (English as his second language, lives outside the US but sells successfully on Amazon.com in the US, local currency weak against US dollar etc.)

 

Those who pay attention to this episode today however should come away with two conclusions:

 

  1. I don't have any excuse to NOT be doing this business model, and...

  2. The way our guest "Fino" does the business should unlock incredible new possibilities in your mind.

 

Episodes like this one really validate that we are in an incredible age of massive opportunities!

Today's guest "Fino" from Bangkok

Jan 31, 2024

On today's new podcast episode we discuss "What’s the Worst That Can Happen? What’s the Best That Can Happen? How do we Mitigate Risk as Amazon sellers?"

 

Other questions include:

 

How many units should I test when trying new products on Amazon?

What's the ONE factor that determines my success with the Amazon strategies we teach?

 

Our coaches Brian and Robin have helped hundreds of students succeed with the Amazon models we teach (as part of the ProvenAmazonCourse.com collection of strategies), and today we have some insights into the realities of the model.

 

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: Can sellers get suspended for tying up other seller's inventory?

Today's guest only learned of Amazon REPLENS just a few short months ago. She's a busy mom working full-time and pursuing a business degree but she's managed to just have a very healthy five figure month on Amazon using the strategies as taught in the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course.

 

She reveals what she sells, how she finds the winners and how crazy it was having her first month where she shipped $20,000 worth of profitable items herself after having learned the systems just a few short months earlier!

Today's guest Raquel Herbias

Jan 27, 2024

In today's episode, we have highlights of a prior show put together by the podcast team. This episode highlights an awesome opportunity in creating branded bundles and selling them on Amazon. Our guest has been doing it for years and is quite successful in more ways than just monetarily.

 

We covered episode #709 - Meet a seven figure branded bundle Amazon seller who employs special needs employees

 

Highlights:

 

Jim gives an introduction to the show’s guest, Kim, who is building a beautiful business using the branded bundle strategy! This is not a model for new Amazon students but rather those who are well established with a business. (more info can be found at: https://provenbrandednundles.com). Additionally, she is providing incredible opportunities for people with special needs to work in her business!

 

The guest details her 20 year history of e-commerce and how her dream of being able to employ people with special needs came to fruition!

 

The guest talks about her purpose driven business and how the employees are loyal, happy to work, good at repetitive tasks and meticulous, which makes every day a good day!

 

Jim encourages the guest to write a book based on her incredible experience she has with not only building a business but also creating employment for people with special needs!

 

The guest shares some tips and pain points she’s experienced with the branded bundle model. She feels her bundles have been successful due to many of them being “universal” in terms of recipients. Also a word of caution - be careful how you list products within the bundles. Be willing to navigate pain points and persist through the challenges! And always remember your WHY!

On today’s new podcast episode we meet a longtime friend of mine who recently found himself in a major career change and contacted me about selling on Amazon. He’s doing great as both a ProvenAmazonCourse.com student and coaching student. We are even talking to him now about possibly becoming a coach on our team because his business has grown so rapidly so quickly and he has an incredible teacher's heart!

 

You'll enjoy hearing the insights of what he’s learned along the way so far as well as the tremendous rewards of building a business with family.

Our guest today recently graduated from college, but now he's more excited about his Amazon business than his previous traditional career path.

 

He's a ProvenAmazonCourse.com student who got connected to our community through word of mouth (which is the only way anyone ever hears about us).

 

He's just had a huge December - which was only his second full month of being an Amazon seller. He asks a lot of great questions and gives a lot of great tips on this episode - you'll learn a ton while listening, I promise!

Today's guest Evan Coleman

Jan 20, 2024

In today's episode, we have highlights of a prior show. This episode includes selling on eBay, Amazon coaching with Coaches Larry and Sue Pruett, getting systems in place, hiring a VA through Legends, getting IP complaints and his store deactivated, appealing the suspension and getting reinstated and more. What a journey!

 

We covered episode #703 - From working in the CIA to building a beautiful Amazon business FT    You can hear the full episode at https://silentjim.com/podcast

 

Today's highlights:

 

Ryan's story - The guest talks about his journey including writing a book called Introduction to Sports Memorabilia by Ryan Walsh, starting a prep center with a friend (called Encore Business Group) and triumphing over some very difficult family situations during this time!

 

Our https://prepcenternetwork.com is our resource that lists prep centers. Ryan's prep center website is linked here: https://encorebusinessgroup.com/

 

This segment is an encouragement to anyone experiencing difficult life situations! The guest discusses in detail some of the hurdles he overcame including family illness and divorce. Jim shares how in these types of situations, there are two possible outcomes - sink or swim! Jim correlates what the guest shares to the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (and Celebrate Recovery) - starting with Step 1 - admitting I’m a mess and ending with Step 12 - helping others get out of what I was in! A favorite saying of Ryan's is, “Pressure makes diamonds or dust!” 

 

The guest shares how he is running his prep center FT, maintaining a presence on AZ utilizing Replens, trying different models for his business and continuing to study The Proven Amazon Course (PAC). Jim puts in a plug for the Coaching Program, which consists of more than 60 coaches and to date, has coached nearly 10,000 sellers!  Jim and the guest discuss this Proven Product Partnering as a business model (found as a module in PAC) which teaches sellers how to partner with brands to get their products on Amazon. 

 

The guest shares details about his previous career, which was working for the CIA for 7 years. During this time he traveled the world internationally but started to have health issues. These experiences helped him recognize the poverty around the world and the appreciation for all we have. Jim reminds the listeners how blessed we are in the US and what an “overcomer spirit” the guest has.  The guest reminds the listeners that there is light after the darkness and Jim ends by saying that this episode is really going to encourage others!

Jan 18, 2024

Today's guest still has a full-time job and is taking online college courses... and has a young daughter but he's squeezed into the cracks of his life the Amazon REPLENS selling business model that we teach in the ProvenAmazonCourse.com training - and it's going really well!

 

He started in the Summer of 2023 and he's ramped up incredibly fast!

 

He shares how he finds great inventory, the tools he's using, the power of doing some of your own shipping (FBM), the power of local relationships and also how he's well on his way to having a seven figure business.

 

*** On today’s podcast episode, Jim mistakenly refers to podcast episode 756 when he meant to refer to number 754. That’s the episode where Khang talks about his fully automated $3 million amazon REPLENS business.

On today's new "coaches corner" podcast episode Robin Joy and Brian answer several why questions related to the 100 ASIN challenge that we teach to ensure success on Amazon.

 

They also discuss a powerful benefit beyond ASINs being added as a replen and that is Amazon's Account Health Rating (AHR) 

 

“To ensure your AHR is evaluated in context of the size of your business, you also gain 4 points for every 200 successful orders you fulfilled over the last 180 days.” https://sellercentral.amazon.com/help/hub/reference/G200205250?ref=ahd-ahr-lm

 

When they say, “Use a 3-step check and a 4-week test to build a 5-figure business in 6 months or less…if you’re consistent!” What is the significance of 5-figures and 6 months?

Why is $10,000/mo in sales significant?

 

Why is 6 months or less significant?

 

Why is 100 ASINs significant?

 

Famous Quote

Strength doesn’t come from what you CAN do; it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t — Rikki Rogers (author)

 

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: Can a seller actually get themselves into trouble with Amazon by reporting other sellers and attempting to build a case against other sellers?

Imagine selling thousands of items monthly in the US on Amazon.com from New Zealand - without ever seeing or touching your inventory!

 

Our guest today knew he needed a big change when one of his sons began to struggle and really needed his family nearby. As a school principal with a busy schedule our guest for today's podcast episode began seeking an internet based opportunity and he found our community.

 

To make a long story short, it's gone incredibly well and he's built a seven figure business using strategies from the ProvenAmazonCourse.com training and he's now a coach on our team as well!

 

This is a touching story of a family that made a major pivot and came out on top. Prepare to be inspired!

Today's guest: Jim Seumanu from New Zealand

 

 

 

Jan 13, 2024

Once per week or so our Amazon seller leadership team and I love to go live on Zoom with whoever can join us and answer as many ecommerce and Amazon selling related questions as possible. We love to capture the best moments from these Monday night sessions for you and turn them into a podcast episode.

 

Highlights grabbed by the podcast team:

 

Jim introduces himself as well as the community, jokingly referring to this segment as a “Jim-fomercial!”

 

Coach Robin Joy discusses the Kick Start bootcamp - for less than $40 new sellers (have to be PAC members) receive 4 group coaching sessions and access to a private Facebook group that will help new sellers get set up quickly and send their 1st product into Amazon FBA! (silentjim.com/kickstart for more info) 

 

 

Coach Brian Olsen talks about the Replens accelerated workshop, which is happening May 21-22, 2024 (right before The Proven Conference!). More info can be found at provenamazoncourse.com/100 and theprovenconference.com.

 

 

The guest shares an encouraging update on her business, which Jim says is “proof of concept!” silentjim.com/bookacall for more info on the coaching program.

 

 

Coaches Brian and Robin Joy Olsen discuss category and brand restrictions for new sellers, as well as ungating. They also recommend Podcast #612 - “I STILL can’t find any Amazon replens - someone help!,” which contains information regarding “the 3 step check.”(watch on YouTube rather than the podcast for additional info).

Jim gives an overview of the Jan 1, 2024 podcast episode on the Amazon influencer program (Podcast #759 - Many are getting big monthly payouts from Amazon for simply uploading short videos to Amazon): 1) anyone can do it 2) doesn’t cost anything 3) involves uploading videos to Amazon 4) if buyers watch them and buy the product as a result, then you get paid a % of the sale.

 

 

Jim talks about one of his favorite podcasts of 2023 - #754 - “Fully automated OA REPLENS business doing multiple seven figures.”

 

 

Coach Brian Olson talks about avoiding generic listings and any ASINs that have the brand misspelled in the title. He compares finding ASINs to looking for puzzle pieces. Jim recommends new sellers listen to the concepts presented in Podcast episodes #554 - Ignore the Amazon “buy box” more if you want to sell more Amazon REPLENS, #555 - Ten ways to find great REPLENSto sell on Amazon and #612 - I STILL can’t find any Amazon replens - someone help! 

 

Coach Brian answers a question regarding an ASIN with 1 FBA seller vs 20 FBM sellers - and proposes some ideas why the FBM sales are happening much more frequently.
