Oct 26, 2023

Today's guest is a former high school teacher and IT professional who stepped away from her career to live a flexible lifestyle on her own terms thanks to the ProvenAmazonCourse.com training and her multiple six figure sales.

 

Initially, she considered launching a private label brand with a different strategy before finding us, but she moved decided against that because of what she calls some "sketchy" elements in the other group, but as she's grown into the Amazon opportunity, she's now exploring branded bundles as her way to step into building a brand without needing any new products of her own.

 

She's also had significant success with moving items from Canada to the US and vice versa - a cool twist to the typical sourcing strategies that we've ever heard on our show!

 

We are so glad she found our community and she has an exciting story to share!

Today's guest Greg Webb

Oct 21, 2023

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 collected by the podcast team:

 

Jim gives a general overview about the My Silent Team community and FB group. He also gives an explanation of the Replen model, which is basically serving the underfilled shelf space at Amazon! Jim also mentions the coaching program

 

Jim discusses if sellers should have just one Amazon seller account vs separate accounts for RA vs Private Label products (PL)

 

Jim suggests a service called Humnbird for help as well as recommending sellers find a local small business accountant to work with regarding taxes

 

Jim encourages new sellers listen to Podcast #369 to learn more about Keepa. Also, there is a new module in The PAC called Advanced Keepa Training. Jim also shares his teams approach on how to read Keepa and how to know when to test

 

A new sellers on the Facebook live shares encouragement with other new sellers! Jim also reiterates that there is a ton of FREE information available on the My Silent Team Facebook page 

 

Jim talks about how The Advanced Keepa training course by the Olsens (in The PAC) lists 10 different ways to use Keepa to find under served ASINs . 

 

Jim discusses using Prep centers for international sellers. Prepcenternetwork.com is a website that can be used to find a prep center. InternationalAZ.com (this module is also in The PAC) helps new sellers navigate some unique challenges

 

The guest asks Jim his opinion on Print on Demand - provenPOD.com is where a module can be found on this exact topic! This is a slightly more involved strategy.

 

Jim recommends Jimmy Smith’s private FB group called 0-100K, which has standard operating procedures and lots of posts about schedules and routines. Email support if you want to have access to this group (free for PAC students paying $39/mo)

Oct 19, 2023

There's a reason why we have more success stories in our community than any other E-commerce community I've ever seen. It's a combination of several things. The 20+ years experience succeeding with E-commcere, eBay & Amazon, the team of 60+ coaches with beautiful businesses, proven strategies that are carefully vetted and tested for months before we dare share them with our community and perhaps most importantly...

 

We start virtually ALL of our students with the same basic skills that ensure they EARN while they LEARN.

 

Today I go through some of the exciting strategies we have coming soon that are all built on the foundation of the basics strategies we teach in the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course.

 

Bottom line: 2023 will end with amazing new records being set, and 2024 will be the greatest opportunity E-commerce business building warriors have ever seen!

 

At the end of the episode we are also excited to bring you a success story about how a student (who is now a coach) went from about $4K per month in profits to tens of thousands monthly with a creative funding solution! Sam Koch from AccrueMe at https://SilentJim.com/funding

Oct 16, 2023

The interview portion of today's episode was recorded BEFORE the terrorist attack in Israel. The episode is with a good friend of mine - Rabbi Daniel Lapin and his wife Susan who are currently in Israel on a business trip.

 

One of the lessons he taught me about being a business building warrior is that you never allow things that are out of your control to steal your attention from those responsibilities that are under your control. One of those responsibilities (even during times of uncertainty) is your BUSINESS!

 

If you want some practical insight into timeless truths - the very timeless truths that have shaped my business and the numerous Lapin fans in our community for over 15 years, then this is an episode that you'll cherish.

 

This episode is a bit different from the norm, but our guest today LOVES our ProvenAmazonCourse.com family and is also our keynote speaker at our upcoming May 2024 live event in Orlando FL (TheProvenConference.com event)

Oct 14, 2023

 

This segment will be a huge encouragement to new sellers who are struggling to get momentum or who are having difficulty staying motivated! Jim talks about “bringing dad’s home” as the core mission of his work!

 

We covered episode #618 - This Coaching Student's journey is a journey of mindset and consistency. You can listen to the full episode at https://silentjim.com/podcast

 

Highlights compiled by the podcast team:

 

Jim and the guest also discuss how important mindset and relationships are in this Amazon journey! Jim also praises the guest for the intentionality in his prayers regarding his business and learning! Jim summarizes the coaching program and how it builds relationships with future leaders in our community, which is the biggest asset of the program!

 

Jim shares resources that have been helpful for him in his ecommerce business: Evangelprenurer (Josh Tolley) and The Gathering Storm: Decoding the Secrets of Noah (Rabbi Daniel Lapin). The guest also mentions a book he found helpful: The Household and the War for the Cosmos (C.R. Wiley).

 

The guest talks about his 1st $10,000 month in sales but also shares his struggles in maintaining momentum!

 

Jim says that without even meeting someone, he can tell them their future by simply asking some questions: Who are your friends? What are your habits / your discipline? How do you treat women? How consistent are you?

 

Jim talks with the guest about how his business is currently doing and suggests toys as a great category to start selling in again now that the safety certificates are largely taken care of. There is a great module in PAC on how to streamline the prepping and shipping process, which Jimmy Smith and Pablo Aguilar put together.

 

The guest asks Jim how to know when a seller is ready to access outside funding! Jim says if you’ve tracked your numbers, know your net margins and are confident in your ability to find winning ASINs.

 

The guest offers a few additional tips: be consistent, track numbers, build relationships and don’t be afraid to ask for help (“cheat code”!)

On today's all new podcast episode we meet two friends who've know each other since the 6th grade and together they've built a successful business using the provenamazoncourse.com strategies that you've heard so many of our podcast guests rave about!

 

They've done everything from Etsy, to books and bulk purchases, but their business stabilized and they had their first ever seven figure year with the REPLENS model that has been the foundation of so many great success stories!

 

They are now getting into branded bundles (as taught in the ProvenBrandedBundles.com course) as well as wholesaling (as taught in the PAC) and they have big plans for the future.

 

They've had their share of challenges along the way that they share with transparency, but they are moving forward with a great business, determination and a stronger friendship than ever. It was truly great getting to know them during this interview!

If you've heard some of the 100's of success story interviews among new Amazon sellers on our podcast, you've likely say many times that, "You should be looking for ASINs instead of 'winning products' on Amazon"

 

What does that mean? How do you do it? How can we help you like we've helped so many others?

 

Today's episode explains the systems we've created that will help you find the opportunity hiding right under your nose on Amazon. It's the REPLENS system - and it's where we start 95% of all our new Amazon selling students. You'll enjoy hearing the strategy spelled out step by step today with the Olson's - two great coaches on our team.

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: What should I do with letters asking me to stop selling a brand?

I've worked with virtual assistants around the world to help grow and scale my business for over 15 years. Today I share some practical tips and strategies for finding great workers who can help you grow - often for just a few dollars ($3-$4/hr). What jobs can they take on? How do you narrow down the candidates quickly if you get 100s or more candidates applying? Isn't paying them $3-$4 exploitation? What jobs do these VA's do for Amazon sellers? What strategy should you use to train them?

 

All these questions and more are addressed as I share my best tips and strategies for working with VA's to help build your provenamazoncourse.com business, or any other business that can benefit from a virtual workforce!

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 compiled by the podcast team:

 

Jim opens the Facebook Live session with some general introductory comments before he dives into answering listeners’ questions! 

 

Jim reminds the listeners that we make our money when we buy our inventory! It’s essential to make good buying decisions! REMEMBER: we are looking for test worthy ASINs, not “winning products!” 

 

A listener wants to know if it is possible to start your business with no money to invest!? Jim says YES, definitely! Podcast episode #369 will help sellers learn Keepa in order to make good buying decisions! 

 

A new seller asks Jim about creating new listings and how to go about hopping on existing listings! Jim clarifies some misconceptions about the Amazon forums! 

 

Jim discusses how nothing is “typical” when it comes to starting a business! But he does emphasize that for people who are really willing to work hard, there are many success stories! Proof of concept can come quickly with the replens model! 

 

Coach Robin Joy gives some Q4 tips for sellers and also highly recommends the Kick Start Boot Camp for new PAC members! It’s a great way to get your Amazon business up and running! 

 

Jim reminds new sellers of some very important tips to remember! 1) Do not set up new listings, 2) Do not do the private label method to start, and 3) do not do pay per click (PPC)! Rather, the goal is to look for and identify underserved listings to sell on! 

 

John is saying "congrats on the upcoming 10 year anniversary…” Jim talks about the upcoming 10 year anniversary of the My Silent Team Facebook page and the incredible success the group has seen over the years! 

 

Jim issues a warning to new sellers that Private Label is NOT the place to start! Our community has seen many sellers find us after losing a lot of money starting with PL! 

 

Jim answers the listener’s question in providing guidance where to start as a new seller: In the PAC, there is a “Getting started” section that will lead you to Amazon 101, Keepa, and the RA Replenishable course. Coaching is also an option as well - silentjim.com/coaching 

 

Jim likes to look for 1) underserved listings with fewer sellers (5-7 sellers, 30-40 drops/month) and 2) anything that is dropping more than 40-50 times per month (regardless of how many sellers). Podcast episode #554 is a great listen about pricing your items and ignoring the buy box!

 

Jim recommends the oasimplified.com course for help with sourcing. Additionally, https://provenbotsourcing.com is a system for scraping websites to help find test worthy ASINs 

 

Jim talks about doing RA via wholesale sourcing! Podcast #369 for more information on Keepa - this is essential! More information is coming regarding a wholesale mastermind group!

There are many ways to go wrong when you are starting out your Amazon business building journey.

 

A few examples:

>Going all in on a private label brand leads to extreme disappointment about 95% of the time

>Buying from sources that aren't legit (closeouts, liquidations, "done for you models", warehouses that do the buying for you etc) These can all lead to sudden death for your account

>Going too deep to fast on what you think is great inventory

...the list is long and we've seen it all.

 

There are also some great lessons you can learn along as you grow. Not all "mistake money" needs to be high risk!

 

That's the topic of today's new "Coaches Corner" podcast episode.

 

A big reason we strongly suggest new students start with the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course (only $39/month) is because the training has a proven track record of getting our students real results. There are 100s of great interviews on our podcast with those students if you'd like to hear some of them!

 

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of https://JeffSchick.com answers the question: What should a seller do when I get an IP complaint

It's a rare occasion when an Amazon executive sits down with an Amazon podcaster to do an interview addressing sellers. To my knowledge, today is quite possibly an industry first!

 

It was truly and honor to be honest.

 

Claire O'donnell is the director of Seller Partner Empowerment and "Communities & Trust" at Amazon. She's has about 700 employees in her organization at Amazon who are all in "seller facing" positions - meaning they are focused on building connections and trust with sellers like you and me - in other words, provenamazoncourse.com students.

 

Her teams manage things like the Account Health Dashboard, the Seller Support Team, the Seller Forums and the Amazon Accelerate event which was attended recently by 2,500 of your fellow sellers from around the world in Seattle. We were there and had the honor of interviewing Claire for a few minutes during her busy schedule as the primary host of the incredible event.

 

Perhaps the biggest win for us at the event (and for you as well) is that we continue to build great relationships with seller facing personalities at Amazon - and that helps us stay better in tune with the true opportunities that Amazon represents for all of us.

 

While we had scheduled 30 minutes with Claire, her schedule was understandably shortened due to the tight schedule of the Amazon Accelerate event, but we did get in some solid questions and this is a great step in the direction of building solid relationships on both sides of the Amazon/seller aisle.
