This is a mini episode dedicated to the topic of Amazon Merch. Amazon Merch is the T-shirt selling service that is an easy add-on income stream for all of us. Recently, on episode 68 we talked about this topic for 80 minutes, but many of you said that it was such a long episode that you never got around to listening to it! In response, we recorded a super-short episode (this one) that will help you decide if this is a topic you should dive into. This is a great episode to share with anyone who is looking for a simple add-on income stream that costs them nothing to start.
Episode #68 is all about merch for 80 minutes!

In this extended episode we talk to a Merch expert as well as a coach in our community who are both very knowledgeable about Merch! Merch is really heating up and it's a pretty simple biz model too. All you have to do is submit simple t-shirt design ideas to Amazon (free) and they wait for sales to be made. You get paid a nice profit for each sale! While we don't consider Merch a great income model on its own just yet, we do think it's a great add on stream of income for anyone who wants to dive into custom printed shirts on the number one shirt selling website in the U.S. - Amazon.com!

My partners and I have an 8 figure physical product business online. We could live VERY comfortably ONLY selling stuff to random strangers. Why don't we just do it then? Aren't we inviting competitors when we share our ideas and products publicly? One of the questions we get from time to time from new members of our community is this, "If you are so good at selling why do you teach instead of just selling?" It's a fair question, and on this episode, I answer all those questions! Get the show notes at http://SilentJim.com
The Amazon opportunity has NEVER been brighter, nor have the opportunities on eBay, Facebook Marketplace and all other online selling platforms. That being said, there are some areas of caution you should be aware of as a seller. On this episode we talk with Scott Margolius about the latest Amazon suspension issues. Scott has helped hundreds of Amazon sellers get back their account after a suspension issue. The success rate is well over 90% in fact!

Selling physical products online from anywhere in the world DOES NOT mean you are in the business of touching boxes all day! Put down your tape gun and listen up online selling warrior! Today Jim talks to his favorite "Prep Partner". A prep partner is someone who receives your product and either stores it for you, or ships it to Amazon for you. For many sellers, this is a service that pays for itself almost instantly while freeing up loads of time for you to do what you do best - instead of spending days playing with box tape!

There's an entirely different set of opportunities and challenges with this model, and we have plenty of inspiration for you regardless of your family situation because Larry and Sue Pruett are also JimCockrumCoaching.com coaches!

There's one simple principle that just might be one of the best kept secrets of our success around here. You can call it a "mind hack" if you'd like. We call it our "F.Y.A." principle. Jim will explain it all in this mini episode. Without "FYA" your odds of success in ANY online venture are slim, however if you implement FYA you'll be virtually assured of having some degree of success and quite possibly WILD success! This principle explains why we are so excited about things like Amazon, Facebook, growing our audience of text opt-in subscribers and email opt-in subscribers etc. Applying the FYA principle virtually guarantees you'll succeed to some degree with any and all of your next projects online.
