Questions and comments:
Jim gives an overview of the My Silent Team team and community and how we are all here to help one another - it's the abundance vs scarcity approach!
Jim discusses creating multipacks and warns against new sellers doing this. HIs recommendation instead is to do the Amazon 101 course in PAC, the Replenishable model and then the Kick Start Bootcamp.
A listener asks Jim about his Bitcoin talk at the conference, which was not recorded due to A/V issues, however, Jim recommends a book called The Bitcoin Standard (by Saifedean Ammous) and has also recorded a Biblical defense of Bitcoin. Silentjim.com/BB to watch a video
Robin Joy and Jim talk about Replens and the 4th quarter! If sellers have taken a break from selling toys, now is a great time to revisit them now that many of the safety certificates have been submitted
A new seller asks Jim to elaborate on what the following terms mean: RA (retail arbitrage) and Replens (the model). He also asks Jim to discuss FBA vs FBM and which is recommended
Jim discusses the process of getting ungated and mentions categories that are good for new sellers to start with. Also, in the MST Facebook group, the hourglass icon at the top right corner of the page can be used to search for “ungated” or “ungating” for many posts discussing this further
Jim discusses how a toy can be a replen and the importance of reading Keepa to determine if it is a good ASIN to sell on. Podcast Episode #369 for additional Keepa training
Jim reassures the listeners that it does not need to be a big deal when Amazon changes their policies because it happens with frequency. Sellers just need to be ready to pivot, roll with the changes
A seller outside the US asks Jim if the Kick Start Bootcamp is helpful for those who sell from outside the US and use a prep center. Jim explains what it means to sell on underserved ASINs and how to identify those with Keepa. Jim prefers to use the phrase “test worthy ASIN!”
