Once per week 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 pulled from the team:

Jim gives an overview of the My Silent Team community and all it has to offer! - a listener refers to this segment as the “Jimfomercial”

 

Jim talks about how new sellers are encouraged to find “test worthy ASINs” or “underserved listings” on Amazon - must listen to podcasts include #554, 555, 612 that really explain in detail what this means! 

 

Robin Joy explains the Kick Start Bootcamp for new sellers (must be a member of PAC) - less than $40/month for 4 coaching sessions! https://silentjim.com/kickstart for more info. Upcoming 2 day workshop - themed: 3 step check with 4 week test - which will happen the 2 days before The Proven Conference (May 23-25, 2024). https://provenamazoncourse.com/100 for more info. 

 

Jim talks about how rather than relying on specific tools when looking for “test worthy ASINs,” he looks for “the skateboard ramp of death.” Jim talks about Attorney Jeff Schick and how keeping him on retainer for a few dollars a day has been helpful. Coach Robin Joy also shares some additional insight about utilizing tools when sourcing. 

 

Jim and Coach Robin Joy talk about inventory management using Replen Dashboard for how to best know which items, which stores, etc are the most profitable. Also a reminder to all sellers to go inch deep and mile wide! 

 

The guest asks Jim about pricing and the buy box! Jim reminds listeners that he has been posting MANY examples of break even at the buy box examples on the My Silent Team Facebook page! 

 

Jim recommends podcast episode 554 - where he talks about ignoring the buy box on millions of ASINs with the worst case scenario being break even in the end and the best case scenario being a very profitable outcome! Many sellers gloss right over test worthy ASINs

 

Robin Joy recommends (on youtube) podcast episode 612 titled: I STILL can't find any Amazon REPLENS - someone help! where she shows examples at the end of the video on how she goes about finding underserved or test worthy ASINs. Jim mentions that once this concept starts to make sense and the light bulb moment happens, it’s like Pandora’s Box opens up!! 

 

Jim talks about how he loves to help new sellers get over mole hills that feel like mountains when starting! Categories for new sellers to start: home and office, kitchen, pet supplies (not food), sporting goods/outdoors, science and technology. (these categories don’t need ungating but there may be brands within them that do) Jim and Robin Joy recommend the PAC and Kickstart Bootcamp which help get new sellers up and running! 

 

Podcast #369 for all things Keepa! Keepa tracks data that even Amazon doesn’t share. Drops = rank changes (which means at least 1 sale has happened). 

 

Jim discusses shipping to FBA and the importance of entering the correct dates as Amazon ‘pre-sells’ items before they actually arrive in their warehouses 

 

Jim encourages new sellers that once committed, it is time to GO! No need for analysis paralysis as the process can be nice and slow. https://silentjim.com/bookacall to inquire further about coaching and if it is a good fit

Today's guest: Rad Monferdini

 

Additional thoughts: 

The guest emailed us after the episode to request that we mention that:

He regretted that we inadvertently moved away from discussing the layout of his converted trailer (after mentioning that we would do so during the episode). He uses this converted trailer as a mini-warehouse space. Watch the youtube version of this episode to see the nice layout.

 

He told us that, "I kinda flippantly made a reference to returning a large item if it didn't sell. I would like folks to understand that I genuinely don't typically buy things with returning it being my out at the end. This item, however, comes from a store where I have been friends with the assistant manager for over 15v years (long before he was ever working at this store). In fact, he will even let me know when stuff that he knows I'm sourcing is back in stock. I guess my point is that I'd like folks to know that I try and be very respectful of the stores where I make my purchases, because I understand that the potential return of a positive long term relationship with that particular store/location will pay much bigger dividends than the short term gain of dumping items back at stores that I was unable to sell. I just don't want people to think that I just run out and return everything that doesn't sell."

 

The guest also wanted to clarify that he does understand, endorse and use the "above the buy box" strategy (as taught in the  provenamazoncourse.com/abovebb module found inside the ProvenAmazonCourse library) - he thought it may have sounded in the interview like he didn't quite understand or endorse the "selling above buy box" strategy, but he wanted to point out that he most certainly does.

Sourcing Without Money

If you have no money or your account is held up for some reason, source, source, source!

Had a client who was waiting on a large payout and all he did was source test worthy ASINs for 3+ months

When he got his payout he started sending in his test worthy ASINs and went from minimal sales to $50K in 3 months…that’s mainly run rate on tests, not much in the way of replens yet

BUT…more dollars = higher risk when new

The real value in your business is the ASINs, not the capital

Selling Above the Buy Box

Selling above the buy box is a strategy that works. We see it all the time.

There is no place to see this strategy working in Keepa and the only way to know would be to test it.

This is not necessarily intuitive and we don't know of another place it is being taught.

We could keep this information to ourselves and many would never know it, but we are sharing because we want to see you have success too

What a Difference a Day Makes

Working with new clients we see the day-to-day progress

Day 1: I can find anything to test! Day 2: I found some to test!

Day 31: I’m not making any sales! Day 32: I just got my first sales!

Perhaps the adage, it’s always darkest before the dawn is true!

If you just give it 1 more day the sun will come out

 

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: When is it OK for an Amazon seller to set up new ASINs on Amazon?

In this highlights episode, you'll hear how the guest juggles business with homeschool, her focus tips and her view on why she does what she does to keep herself going. These highlights will encourage anyone currently building or considering an Amazon business especially when it gets hard!

 

We covered episode #622 - From full-time pharmacist to Amazon business building homeschooling mom. You can listen to the full episode at https://silentjim.com/podcast

 

Notes from the podcast team:

 

The guest shares how she got started in ecommerce and discusses some transferable (to business) lessons she learned while working as a pharmacist: 1) how to work under pressure 2) how to be resilient 3) how to be flexible 4) how leadership grows

 

The guest found Podcast Episode #307 to be her sign from God that she should move forward with Amazon! She describes finding The Proven Amazon Course (PAC), The My Silent Team Facebook page, Jim’s podcasts and Jimmy Smith’s Replens training. She also discusses her very positive coaching experience - Jim shares that all the coaches have a booming Amazon business themselves as well as having teacher hearts to help new students learn!

 

The guest shares transparently how many times she contemplated quitting and while she took a brief respite, she was back up and running again soon! She shares very openly how she made poor buying decisions in the beginning until she got better at reading Keepa. She also reiterated Jim’s stance that connections and relationships are the building blocks of business!

 

Hibah discusses some big steps she took to grow her business: attended an in person mastermind get together that had the purpose of sourcing together, started using a prep center and hired a VA! 

 

Jim and the guest discuss how much time she is spending on her business per week, which has decreased significantly now that she’s using a prep center and a VA! Jim also discusses how different sellers grow their businesses at different rates and that is OK!

 

Hibah offers some last minute advice and tips for new sellers:

Go to the live convention - theprovenconference.com

Remember your “why” - when times are tough and you think about quitting, remember WHY you are doing this! (which always comes back to - who are you serving?)

Dec 21, 2023

Today's guest is Khang -he's a multiple seven figure seller success story from our community who recently returned from a two week family vacation - and he didn't even check his Amazon seller stats while he was gone!

 

He's seeing record breaking sales and growth in his Amazon REPLENS business and he tells you EXACTLY how he does it on today's episode. He's in his third year and the growth has been incredible year after year.

 

New sellers will be inspired by this new system that is WIDE OPEN to them, and seasoned sellers will be challenged and encouraged as well!

 

On a personal note, our guest Khang suddenly lost a child just a few months ago as of this recording and we appreciated the transparency, tenacity, gratitude and warriors heart of this father who drew closer to God in the face of tragedy as he shares the details of his family's journey.

 

He's a provenamazoncourse.com student who has built a very healthy business that runs with two workers and a small VA team. The real beauty of "the system" is the software he's using that automates every aspect of the entire system.

 

You'll want to get notification when this "system" (the software we've been excitedly testing among many coaches and leaders on our team) is made available publicly.

Dec 18, 2023

Today's guest is a coaching student and provenamazoncourse.com student who has built a robust multiple five figure per month REPLENS business selling on Amazon.com (US).

 

He's doubled his business this year over last year and he has big goals for the future.

 

He has a team of virtual assistants (he calls them teammates) who are filling all the vital roles of his business and you even get to briefly meet a few of them on today's episode (although we had some audio issue so we had to edit that portion a bit).

 

He's using a US based prep center to store and ship his inventory and he even does a significant amount of FBM (merchant fulfill) without ever seeing or touching his inventory!

 

Our guest says his top priority is to "make my role unnecessary" - and he's well on his way to doing it!

Dec 16, 2023

Once per week or so our Amazon seller leadership team goes live on Zoom with whoever can join us to answer as many ecommerce and Amazon selling related questions as possible.

 

Highlights put together by the podcast team :

 

Jim reminds all new sellers that they should start with The Proven Amazon Course (PAC). He also discusses the “Getting Started” module and recommends the Kick Start Bootcamp 

 

Jim discusses why now is the best time to start selling physical products online and how market saturation is not a concern! E-commerce is the way of the future! Robin Joy discusses how the Kick Start Bootcamp is an incredible opportunity! She also discusses the Path to 100 ASINs course - go to provenamazoncourse.com/100 to fill out the survey and be notified of upcoming courses in 2024 

 

Robin Joy outlines the basic financial needs to start your business: a professional selling account, Keepa account and some money for inventory. With the Replens model, the goal is to put money in the bank as you learn! Jim summarizes the model - low-low-high: low risk, low investment, high chance of success 

 

Jim talks about finding test worthy ASINs (underserved listings) vs profitable products! He recommends new sellers listen to podcast episode #554, which further explains this strategy! 

 

Jim records a “mini live podcast” during this Monday Facebook live. Key points include:

-Foundational method is the Replens model - finding test worthy ASINs

-Why right now is the best time to embark on an e-commerce business? (only 15-17% retail economic activity is online!)

-Jim also discusses inflation and how that plays into this business!

-We live in a time where there is such incredible disparity in the value of the US dollar!

 

A listener asks Jim about putting expenses on a credit card (Seller account, Keepa, inventory, etc). Jim talks about what's needed financially to build a slow, steady and solid business. He recommends a book from one of our own community members - From Homeless to Homeowner by Carolyn McFall

 

A seasoned eBay seller shares how he is utilizing his selling background to help get up and running on Amazon. The guest also inquires of Jim if he should sell the same products FBA as well as FBM! Jim also gives a couple tips about selling FBM during Q4!

 

Jim recommends Amazon University for new sellers and/or the Kick Start boot camp, which the guest inquires as to how far he needs to be into The PAC to do the boot camp! 

 

The guest asks about cashback websites such as Rakuten, as well as discounted gift cards, and wonders how to factor those into the profitability of products. silentjim.com/giftcards for more info on how to utilize gift cards. The guest asks Jim if he feels FBA or FBM is experiencing more growth!

Dec 14, 2023

On today's podcast we talk about BUYING and SELLING Amazon's account. Yes, it's allowed and legal - but doing it yourself is unwise.

 

Aaron (our guest) has helped over 1,500 sellers navigate the transfer of ownerships of Amazon stores. Even an "empty" Amazon store that's sat dormant for a couple years could be worth significant cash!

 

Read about the only Buy/Sell services that we like at: SilentJim.com/buyorsell

 

Some details:

It's within Amazon policy and a perfectly legitimate arrangement to transfer business ownership of an Amazon seller account.

 

Who should BUY an Amazon account:

If you are well positioned to take advantage of buying an established Amazon account at the start of your Amazon journey, it can make sense to do so! Benefits include potentially far faster payouts, fewer category or storage restrictions, a better seller rating on the platform and an established account health reputation with Amazon - just to name a few.

 

Who should SELL an Amazon account:

Are you looking to step away from Amazon for a season? Maybe other opportunities have come your way, or you're in a season of life (permanently or temporarily) where selling your account makes sense. Your established account could be worth more money that you might realize!

 

That's the topic of today's show!

Did you know there are over 4 BILLION listings (products) on Amazon? That’s a lot of opportunity to sell against existing listings!

On today’s new podcast episode we discuss just how wide open and expansive the REPLENS strategy truly is as taught in the provenamazoncourse.com course. 

 

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: How can I know if a small retail store is "safe" for sourcing as a reseller on Amazon?

In this highlight episode you'll hear how the guest sources inventory, her full numbers and profits as well as other details that will inspire and encourage anyone currently building or considering an Amazon business!

 

We covered episode #684 - From corporate career to home based Amazon  success with Replens. You can listen to the full episode at https://silentjim.com/podcast

 

Jim and the guest talk about their parallel journeys that have led them to their e-commerce beginnings! The guest further discusses the conservative path she took before jumping into Amazon selling. She first spent time lurking in the My Silent Team FB group and listening to many podcasts!

 

Jim also discusses how consulting in the Amazon world can be its own income stream! 4 months into her Replens journey and the guest was hitting 10k in monthly sales! And 20-25k in 6 months! Keepa, Keepa product finder, Brian and Robin Joy’s course, coaching, OA Simplified and a Prep center were all incredibly helpful for her growth as well!

 

Jim and the guest discuss the importance of relationships, community and networking!  Guest says she was intentional, talked with vendors at tables, got more out of the classes/sessions and focused on building relationships at this year’s conference. Jim reminds sellers about Orlando 2024!! May 23-25 - more info at https://theprovenconference.com

 

She shares that she has Attorney Jeff Schick on retainer to help with any legal issues that may arise with her business!  A reminder that everything sells more during Q4 - even the mundane, and Jim reminds listeners that selling groceries via FBM can be very profitable!

 

Jim also discusses building systems to simplify your business! - especially finding someone else to help find profitable ASINs as a 1st step (rather than packing boxes)!

 

The guest reminds listeners that you need to know how to do a task well before delegating that task to someone else! The guest has some final tips for the new sellers!: 1) Just move forward, 2) Inch deep and mile wide approach, 3) Don’t give up too quickly.

Today's guest quit his last "real job" in the late 90s (on the day he won employee of the month at his last employer) and has been an entrepreneur in e-commerce since then. The first 15 minutes of our discussion is his history of ups and downs with various business models, including how he lost everything in 2014 when he inadvertently broke laws that he didn't realize existed.

 

Now he's helping brands sell about $80K per month with the PPP (Proven Product Partnering) model as taught in the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course as well as a few other models we discuss. Because of his long time experience in ecommerce and his ongoing success with the models we teach, we've also brought him on board as a coach on our team!

 

This interview is just more evidence that the knowledge you gain by starting and running a basic Amazon selling account like we teach gives you incredible advantages and opportunities in many arenas!

 

Today's sponsor! https://humnbird.com - They help sellers get established on Amazon.com (sell in the US from anywhere in the world) They specialize in everything from Intellectual Property, Trademarks, Patents, Corporation Setup to Branding, Design and Marketing. We recommend their affordable systems and solutions giving you everything you need for your wholesale and private label business even overseas!

With nearly 10,000 coaching clients served and thousands of successful businesses launched over 20 years I can confidently say that the odds are you are OVER COMPLICATING Amazon selling.

 

Discussed on today's episode:

> Forty recent examples from my own inventory where I'm selling items on Amazon well above average Amazon sales price EVERY DAY

> The overhyped concerns about Amazon suspensions that's borderline ridiculous (it's virtually a non-factor based on huge numbers of sellers we've taught and coached)

> The massive trends that are in your favor if you sell in-demand products online

> The lowest imaginable risks and highest possible upside potential of starting any legitimate business in history

> The common pitfalls that are so easily avoided and yet are so often encountered by misinformed sellers

...and much more.

 

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: What's an "inventory audit" and why/how often should I do one as a REPLENS seller?

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 added by the podcast team: 

Jim gives an overview of who he is and how he has supported his family with e-commerce for over 20 years!  Also, mark your calendars for The Proven Conference - May 23-25, 2024! (https://theprovenconference.com/orlando/ for more info)

Jim discusses how Amazon will list items for sale even before they have them in stock once they trust their sellers. Jim recommends new sellers listen to Podcast #554 which talks about pricing above the buy box Jim and Robin Joy discuss the Kick Start Bootcamp, which is a course for new Proven Amazon Course students to jump start their business! $39 gets you 4 group coaching sessions to get your business up and running!

Jim and the guest talk through the process of selling and the evolution that occurs as new sellers continue on! Jim also reminds listeners to be sure to listen to podcasts!

Jim and Robin discuss how important it is for new sellers to test even lowered priced ASINs because they can always be removed as you grow and learn to read Keepa better! Also, it’s normal for newer sellers to go through a “slump” when they are working hard to grow their business! It’s important to identify what is causing the slump

This segment discusses Replen Dashboard as the recommended program to help sellers keep track of their inventory. Repricers are mentioned and how at the core of the Replen model, it really is quite simple if new sellers follow the My SIlent Team teachings!

A new coaching student inquires about sending products to FBA (sourced via OA) as they come in or wait until they’ve all arrived? Jim also warns sellers NOT to sell against Generic ASINs or ASINs that have the brand misspelled, etc.

Jim says if anything looks “weird” in a listing (the brand for example), then do further research. Also, be careful where you source products and make sure distributors are legitimate. Jim also discusses IP complaints and the mindset to approach those with

Jim discusses some different tools and identifies the ones that are necessary for a new seller and one that can wait to get! Jim also discusses some considerations for selling products on Amazon vs. eBay ( Jim discusses high pricing errors as well as listings that don’t have a buy box
