A panel of leaders from our team got together to tackle these questions recently and we recorded the conversation. ALL Amazon resellers, bundle sellers and anyone who is considering selling on Amazon will benefit from hearing this discussion.

 

Overview:

A couple times per year for the past 20+ years we've seen both minor and major updates and changes come into play for sellers on Amazon, eBay etc.

 

Amazon has changed policy and fee structures recently so we dive into the details.

 

Right now there's a lot of discussion about the latest fee and shipping changes on Amazon for example. How concerned are serious sellers? How big of an impact will these changes have?

 

Topics covered among others:

Has the opportunity on Amazon changed? Is it harder now? If so, how much?

Are changes necessary in light of these changes?

How are these changes BENEFITING especially newer sellers?

What's the bottom line impact we are predicting as far as total impact sellers will see?

What solutions have already floated to address these changes?

Today's all new episode tackles common questions and challenges faced by newcomers to selling on Amazon, specifically around restrictions and approved categories. It begins by addressing the concerns of many new sellers who find themselves confused by the limitations placed on what they can sell, noting that initial approval typically includes categories like Home and Kitchen, Arts and Crafts, Office Products, and Pet Supplies (excluding pet food).

 

Even with all the initial restrictions that Amazon has though, there are a significant number of available ASINs (products) in these approved categories that total over 50,000 products—that meet specific criteria such as having some past or current FBA offers, being non-hazmat, having no Amazon sales in the past 30 days and experiencing at least 30 or so sales rank drops in the past month.

 

Further, the episode provides strategic advice on how to expand your list of potential ASINs by selecting trustworthy sources.

 

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: "If I get some 'free stuff' from a supplier or elsewhere, can I sell it safely on Amazon?"

Today's podcast guest lives in Laos and runs a successful Amazon selling business in the US on Amazon.com. He's using concepts from the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course to provide all the living expenses he needs while he's living permanently in the country that God called him to  serve and love on the people of a poor nation.

 

Laos is a poor nation where the US dollar goes very far, so our guest for today's show is using the proceeds to bless those near him and even training them on how to get into ecommerce themselves as you'll hear.

 

It's another great example of what's possible when you learn the basics of Amazon the way we teach it - the flexibility of location is powerful and you won't believe what he's been able to achieve so fast in his young journey of only a few months as a REPLENS student of our training!

Apr 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.

 

 

  • Coach intro to Kickstart Bootcamp - Robin Joy gives an overview 

 

  • Podcast best hits -- Jim covers which episodes are most helpful and popular with our listeners of the Silent Sales Machine Radio podcast https://silentjim.com/podcast

 

  • They touch on cross the border selling and the advantages of doing so

 

  • Jim clarifies what a replen is and how knowing this is intregal to your success

 

  • Lots of discussion on why Keepa is so important to your Amazon business

 

Question

My question is, I'm in Canada and I did start my journey as a private label seller and that didn't go too well and then I joined you I think a year ago, should I sell here or in the US?

You have a very unique advantage living in Canada. We've got some cross border training coming from Debbie on our team here and we're going to actually be rolling it out at the conference in May. https://theprovenconference.com

 

Question

My question is how do I do replens? I've always done replens and home goods products which sell very well but I have to get my income up more.

Replens definition

Let's talk about what a replen is real quick.

The difference between where you are now and having a business where you pay someone to put tape on boxes which is $12 $15 an hour work, you need to be spending time perfecting your Keepa skills. 

You really got to dive into replens, find test worthy asins and build your book of ASINs

When you start off in the Proven Amazon Course you're going to start off with Amazon 101, then both Replens courses we offer in the PAC. You will see exactly where to start on the tab "get started" and that's going to keep you busy the next three or four months.

 

Question 

What podcast could help me understand keepa charts?

If you want a shortcut get the course get the proven Amazon course go through Kickstart. https://silentjim.com/kickstart/

Podcast episodes which are helpful and fan favorites. Episodes 369 is the go to beginner's understanding of how we use Keepa, then episodes 612, 554, 555, 754 at https://silentjim.com/podcast

For those of you who around earlier when I was mentioning it podcast episode 754 is our interview with Khang Dang. He's brilliant and created a software program to help manage his multimillion dollar Amazon business. We're very proud of how low we're going to make the price on this thing. https://silentjim.com/thesystem

 

Question

Someone asked if there's any repricing training inside the Proven Amazon Course. Yes, there is. Bqool is one of our great sponsors.

Apr 10, 2024

Sorry to burst your bubble, but after helping hundreds of students succeed on Amazon last year we are positive that "There is No Magic Formula".

 

We can teach you the SYSTEM, but there are lessons to learn and opportunity comes with a steady ongoing learning curve.

 

This new podcast episode discusses the opportunities and complexities of finding profitable Amazon products (aka Amazon Standard Identification Numbers or ASINs).

 

We address the common misconception that there's a simple magic formula for success in selecting "winning profitable" ASINs. There just isn't!

 

The discussion emphasizes the importance of matching any ASIN you find with a reputable source, avoiding third-party sellers, ensuring brand accuracy, and verifying listing details. It further highlights that testing is crucial for gaining experience, understanding inventory placement, improving account health, receiving seller feedback, and uncovering profit opportunities.

 

Once you have these habits, you will be an ASIN hunting NINJA, but until then, you're taking unnecessary risks and cutting your success short!

 

The episode advises testing safely by choosing fast-moving items, protecting capital, and being open to testing rather than finding reasons not to. It concludes that there's no universal formula for testing or replenishing ASINs, stressing that experience and inventory control, even with a small number of units, are key to making informed decisions.

 

The importance of diligence and careful evaluation is underscored in the conclusion.

 

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of https://JeffSchick.com answers the question: "Can the actions I take with my amazon SHOPPING (buyer) account effect my Amazon SELLER account?"

Question -  What is the difference between Jungle Scout and Keepa? 

One of the best tools we recommend is Keepa which allows a quick decision based on good data that we

Question - I use Bqool repricer and need help with a setting, can you help?

Facebook group - great question for our FB group

https://www.facebook.com/groups/mysilentteam

 

Question - Can you still do ra when you change to a wholesale account?

Podcast #807 is an example of building an Amazon Business where our student uses several different business models in one selling account.

PROVEN Branded Bundles -we're going to be adding this course to our PAC this month!

https://PROVEN Branded Bundles.com

 

Question - Does the old buying inventory 3x rule still work selling on Amazon?

The answer is it depends!

Use a great tool to be well informed

https://provenamazoncourse.com/revseller - gives you a quick estimate of the fees

 

Question-If I leave an as I'm run out of an as out of a stock and I'm not sure if I'm going to continue with that ASIN or not? Do I have to close it out or can I leave it as it is?

Not an issue but there are considerations here.

 

Question -If Amazon is on the listing should I avoid that ASIN?

More thoughts on this strategy a bit later in the show.

 

Question - When I get good inventory listed I get a letter from the supplier saying that I am not authorized to sell, how do I deal with this?

Jeff Schick is a terrific resource here https://jeffschick.com

Asking on the MST Facebook group with hidden details is helpful in discerning if the letters are legit

The Keepa chart's sharp decline of sellers is a hint that the brand may be best to stay away from - "grumpy brands"

 

Question: Are we allowed Amazon to Amazon Flips?

Yep! Don't use your Prime account.

 

Question: Should I set my price higher than the Buy Box price for 3-4 weeks?

Podcast #554 - Above the Buy Box pricing

 

Question - Why it doesn’t always matter that Amazon is selling on the ASIN?

Sometimes Amazon being on the listing is better for boosted ranks of your product.

 

Buy Box crucial information

Question: Do you try to win the buy box or match the buy box?

https://silent Jim.combb70 - our Facebook chat of all Jim's examples of selling at a higher price

Podcast 554, 555, 612 - these episodes highlight Above the Buy Box pricing

Be sure to be well informed in the Replens training in our Proven Amazon Course before diving too deeply in this strategy

Suppressed Buy Box

Jim explains what that means. How it can be a plus on your product listings.

Apr 4, 2024

For over 20 years, the only income my family and I have had is from multiple online ventures. I've learned many valuable lessons about growing online streams of revenue over this time and on today's episode I break down the most important elements of the journey.

 

I explain why we start the vast majority of our new students with Amazon selling. I also discuss the three categories of opportunity that we see online (all business ideas online fit into one of these three).

 

If you can BUILD SYSTEMS (automate processes) and PURSUE RELATIONSHIPS (surround yourself with others on a similar journey) you can also build great income streams online.

Today's guest: Ed Dassie

Mar 30, 2024

In today's weekend episode we have highlights of a prior show. 

 

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.

 

We covered episode #775 -  Busy mom pursuing a college degree while also building a beautiful Amazon business. The full episode can be heard at https://silentjim.com/podcast

 

Highlights include: 

Jim gives some introductory information: www.theprovenconference.com in order to register for the annual conference - May 23-25, 2024 in Orlando, FL! 

Book a free call with Jim’s team regarding coaching (every coach has their own successful Amazon business!) www.silentjim.com/bookacall 

 

The guest details her journey in the e-commerce world which started with Mercari and Poshmark before she found Amazon. She discusses ASD in Las Vega. Now that it’s the beginning of 2024, she is re-evaluating how to keep the momentum going and how to continue to grow! 

 

The guest shares with Jim that during December, her sourcing was about 40% wholesale and 60% RA/OA. Jim encourages her to keep the wholesale going since she has already learned a lot (typically we do not recommend new sellers start with wholesale). But Jim REALLY encourages the guest to focus on the low hanging fruit while she is trying to ramp up and to do more RA and OA! Jim recommends Podcast #369 for all things Keepa! The guest mentions Seller Amp, which estimates sales per month (from Keepa data). Jim reminds the listeners to not get emotionally attached to any ASINs! 

 

The guest had an incredibly busy Q4 with merchant fulfilling her sales! Jim then asks the guest what her process is for finding winning ASINs! The guest shares that she uses reverse sourcing and Jim affirms that this is an acceptable method to find test worthy ASINs

 

The guest shares how she found out that her boyfriend’s boss sells on Amazon as well. She was excited to know someone so close who is doing the same thing! Reminder that you can use the My Silent Team Facebook page to find other sellers located close to where you live! - https://www.facebook.com/groups/mysilentteam/posts/4243062552476489/

 

The guest asks for Jim’s favorite book recommendations (aside from the Bible!): Business Secrets from the Bible by Rabbi Daniel Lapin. (The Rabbi is going to be the keynote speaker at The Proven Conference May 23-25, 2024!)

The Blessed Life and Beyond Blessed by Pastor Robert Morris - which have to do with stewardship. Entreleadership by Dave Ramsey 

 

The guest asks Jim about inventory management and how best to go about handling all the moving pieces! Jim recommends Podcast #754 with Khang (who is coming out with new software- www.silentjim.com/system). Replen Dashboard is another good option (Jimmy Smith).

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.

In a recent popular facebook post we discussed the most common ways we see especially new sellers on Amazon FAIL. Many mistakes are common among even the most experienced sellers as well however.

 

The Facebook post took on a bit of a life of its own with some great participation from the community.

 

The bottom line is this -if you avoid these common "traps" your odds of building a great business goes WAY up as you've heard from 100s of ProvenAmazonCourse.com students on other episodes of our show!

We’ve identified 10 reasons why especially new Amazon sellers (or sellers who are struggling) on Amazon should find as many ASINs (new products) to test as possible and they should do it as soon as possible in order to make their odds of success as great as possible.

 

While this may seem obvious, we’ve observed that many sellers try to find a handful of magic products that will boost them into the business they desire. Rarely is that what happens however. On today’s episode, we dive into the reasons you should find numerous products to test as well as some strategies for doing exactly that.

 

Here are 10 Reasons you should build a strong foundation as quickly as possible

1. Hard to find averages when going ASIN by ASIN
Book of biz leads to Averages leads to predictability.
Increasing profits and decreasing expenses is much more impactful on a book of business than on a few ASINs.

2. Diversity
A solid foundation allows for branching out while maintaining revenues.
There are so many different categories and subs that we will never run out of new areas to source in.

3. IPI Score
A foundational book of business helps you understand the metrics that make up the IPI Score
Helps keep level inventory numbers.

4. Anything can happen to any ASIN
When you have only a few ASINs, anything that happens to any ASIN can really hurt.
When there are more ASINs, the overall impact is smaller.

5  Keeps risk low
Spreading your risk over many different listings can make the risk of losing all much lower and the chances of profiting overall much higher.

6. Easier to outsource
Putting together a foundational book of business makes it much easier to compile standard operating procedures and best practices.
When you outsource, it is much easier to hand that off.

7.  Economies of Scale
AKA Critical Mass  
Helps with inbound transportation, purchasing supplies, paying contractors, justifying expenses and subscriptions

8.  Account Health Rating
New sellers all start with a score of 200 and anything less than 200 is
Any policy adherence issues deduct points from your score.
Increase score by 4 points for every 200 successful sales in a rolling 180-day period.
Riskiest time is when trying to build that first 200 sales so get it done as quickly as possible.

9.  Lifting of restrictions
How many stories have we heard about sellers who had things ungated and they didn’t even know? They were just open one day. This is what happens when you focus on working with what you have available to you.

10. Make more money!
Isn’t this why we’re all here?
Let’s make some car payments, some house payments
Let’s bring moms and dads home!

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: What is "section three" and why was it such a big deal a few months ago? What have we learned?

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.

 

Here are several summary answers recorded for you:

 

Jim gives what he calls an “infomercial” to launch this Facebook live! The My Silent Team Facebook group now has 75,000 members strong! Jim has about 60 coaches on his team, all of whom have their own robust Amazon businesses! Jim has earned a living from e-commerce alone for over 20 years and he loves what he does!

 

Jim introduces Nathan Bailey, who has worked with him for 20 years now (primarily in the coaching department)! “The mission is bigger than the man” in this community and we really want everyone to succeed! Jim shares the candlelight vs cake mentality which is a poverty vs abundance mindset that we really emphasize in this community! Jim and Nathan explain the “inch deep, mile wide” approach that we want new sellers to follow when starting. Podcast episode 554 talks about the “selling above the buy box” strategy.

 

Jim outlines 3 red flags to be on the lookout for when reading Keepa: If listed as a generic brand - do not list on it!! (means it is likely mis-branded) Jim discusses pricing requests that Amazon sometimes makes and how to handle those The guest asks Jim about product safety certificates and how he should go about handling the situation. Jim recommends listening to Podcast episode 754 to hear about the possibilities with the Replens model. Coach Nathan Bailey answers the guest’s questions about trademarks and also shares his business which can help further with these questions -  https://humnbird.com

 

For more experienced sellers, Jim outlines some additional ways to make an online income including consulting work - https://provenproductpartnering.com for more info. Also an Amazon influencer program - https://provenAZinfluencer.com for more info. The Proven Amazon Course (PAC) also has over 30 strategies for making money on Amazon! Jim reminds the listeners of our live event https://theprovenconference.com, which is coming May 2024. It will have over 40 break out sessions as well as many new strategies for Amazon selling!

 

Jim explains in detail what “Replens” means and how it is the lowest hanging fruit opportunity to make money on Amazon! It is low risk, has the lowest price point for entry and the highest odds of success. It is essentially finding the underserved or “test worthy” ASINs on Amazon and “replenishing” the products as they sell. This is just one of many ways to make money on Amazon but it’s the best place for new sellers to start!  Jim also highly recommends new sellers listen to the following Podcasts - Episodes 369 - Keepa; 554-555 - how to find good products to test;  612 - the 3 step test; 754 - an incredible scaling of a Replens business at https://silentjim.com/podcast

Today's guest: Ammi Stover

Mar 20, 2024

Especially early on in your Amazon or ecommerce business building journey, being too "results-oriented" can lead to excess pressure and inconsistency. Learning to embrace a task-oriented approach gives you far more control and ultimately consistent success!

 

You'll do far better if you learn to celebrate every step in the ProvenAmazonCourse.com journey by seeing the early, necessary steps as small victories that lead to an eventual financial results.

 

Let's talk about it on today's all new "coaches corner" episode of the Silent Sales Machine Radio podcast.

 

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: When is it safe to sell on an ASIN that has "Generic" as the brand?

Mar 16, 2024

In today's weekend episode we have highlights of a prior show. In this segment we discuss both the upcoming Proven Conference and our Lego selling training program. We also include the benefits of selling toys online.

 

Greg spoke at the 2023 virtual conference and will be speaking live at the May 23-25, 2024 Proven Amazon Conference in Orlando! 2011-2012 started Greg’s e-commerce journey when he needed to get money together for a house down payment! The 2014 Frozen movie really ramped up his eBay business before he then transitioned to selling those items on Amazon. And the rest is history!

 

Jim talks about how there are so many ways to make money online but focuses specifically on Lego sales with this guest! They also discuss the new course called provenbrickinvesting.com! This course is geared for new sellers who have never sold Legos before - focusing on the terminology used, patterns or themes to look for, life cycles and retiring sets, where to buy them, how to store them, etc. “Dollar density” is a phrase that is used to describe the approach the guest takes 

 

The guest outlines what this new course is going to look like!:

Session 1 - introduction and general concepts 

Session 2 - discussion of the real meat and potatoes of the program/how it works/how to get ungated, etc.

Session 3 - things you may not think about/technical discussion/how to store them, etc

 

The guest also discusses “store exclusives” - which provides another level of scarcity for the supply and demand of the sets. Jim talks about how this is really the 1st course they’ve done that uses this approach of: “buy strategically, hold and then sell.” Jim is really excited about the addition of another income stream available to his community!

 

Jim asks the guest how he handles his “duds” - eBay and Walmart.com are alternatives the guest uses if/as needed 

 

Jim discusses how there will also be a Facebook community for the sellers who take this course and also addresses international sellers and if this Lego course is doable for them - which it absolutely is! Jim and the guest also discuss getting/being ungated in Legos.

In my hometown and in many other places as well there’s an item which is sold by the hundreds or more every day for several dollars each, yet strangely….

ANYONE can get the exact same item in any quantity they'd like packaged the exact same way FOR FREE just a couple hundred yards away.

Does that make any sense at all to you? It's true. I'll tell you exactly where it's happening on today's new podcast. This lesson will help you understand one of the under-used Amazon selling strategies we teach and use. 

It’s true…

Every day millions of shoppers on Amazon pay way more than they have to for the items they want.  Until you understand the mind of the Amazon shoppers and how grateful they are for CONVENIENCE, you will be overlooking millions of potentially profitable listings that you could sell against - it's one of the strategies we teach in the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course!

We’ve now captured 800 podcast episodes - and most of them are success stories from students of the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course!

 

I thought episode #800 would be a good time to talk about the state of the Amazon and e-commerce opportunities overall. With thousands of success stories, a rapidly increasing community of amazing people like you and new doors of opportunity opening constantly for us all, I am as confident as I’ve ever been about the future of Amazon and e-commerce as the greatest business opportunities of our time.

 

There are dozens of strategies that we’ve documented to be potent and viable for a motivated business building warrior like you. I'm so grateful that you’re part of our community and we continue to be amazed by the landscape of opportunities that are in front of us!

 

We are just getting started. Join me for episode 800! You can watch this episode on our YouTube channel here: https://youtu.be/5mH_GrQwEuk

While we really love to see business building warriors diving head first into self education, when it comes to selling on Amazon there are several very common mistakes you're likely to make if you try to go it alone and learn it all yourself.

 

On today's episode I cover the top mistakes sellers make in regards to going too big too fast, thinking too small or creating a hamster wheel business model, or simply pursuing ideas that cause you to ultimately lose in the end in spite of the hype.

 

We talk about dropshipping, selling liquidations on Amazon, scanning barcodes and selling books as well as the hot trend of "done for you" models and using "overhyped tools"!

 

There's something for all Amazon sellers in this episode.

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 team:

Jim gives an overview of the community and why we recommend new sellers start with the Replens Model, which has a “low, low high” theme - low investment required, low learning curve and high odds of success! Jim also discusses the www.provenAZinfluencer.com program and how our community is getting excited about this newer program! 

 

Jim discusses how there are discounts available for PAC and coaching students Listeners can also email support for any questions or concerns: support@silentsalesmachine.com

 

Jim talks about how to use the MST Facebook page to find other sellers who are located close to you! He also highly recommends the Kick Start boot camp for those who have PAC as a way to jump start your business, meet other new sellers and create community with them! The Kick Start program is only $40 for 4 group coaching sessions - www.silentjim.com/kickstart.com and also has a private Facebook group so participants can connect! The Proven Conference is another great way to meet people and develop relationships that are so crucial to this business! www.theprovenconference.com Conference will be May 23-25, 2024 in Orlando!

 

Jim talks about how important relationships are in this business and how it can be very lonely without them!  The guest recommends a book called Fire Yourself First by Jeff Russell. Jim also recommends Business Secrets from the Bible by Rabbi Daniel Lapin, who will be the keynote speaker at this year's Proven Amazon Conference! As far as a recession goes, Jim’s advice is to not participate!!

 

In May at the Proven Amazon Conference, Coaches Brian and Robin Joy are doing a workshop called 100 ASINs. They teach the 3 step check, 4 week test, to build a 5 figure business in 6 months if you are consistent! www.provenamazoncourse.com/100

 

Jim has suggestions and a word of warning for a newer seller in terms of utilizing a VA. Jim and Coach Robin Joy also give some guidelines for listing bundles: do not set up new listings if you are a newer seller - too many risks involved. www.provenbrandedbundles.com for a specific course on bundles and how to do it correctly!

 

New sellers often ask how to find profitable products but rather the question should be how to find “test worthy ASINs" or “underserved shelf space at Amazon!!” Jim has posted many examples on the My Silent Team Facebook page demonstrating exactly how this works! Jim recommends listeners go to Podcast #554 for an in depth discussion on this topic and Podcast #369 is a thorough discussion on Keepa!

 

The guest mentions the 3 step check that Robin Joy teaches in order to determine “the worst case scenario.” (more info about this in Podcast #612). Jim talks about the pink line on the Keepa chart in making this decision

Not all of our ProvenAmazonCourse.com students go on to build beautiful businesses. While we are quite proud of the fact that THOUSANDS of sellers point to our coaching and content as having helped them build something special, and we are also proud to mention that we've interviewed hundreds of them on our podcast- the truth is, it doesn't always work out!

 

While there are endless reasons why any business can ultimately fail, there's a common theme we've noticed among Amazon and e-commerce warriors who don't quite make it. I'd venture to guess that just about anyone who has "taken a shot at it" and come up short likely faced one or more of the threats we'll talk through on today's episode and failed to overcome it.

 

It's good to be informed and avoid these common threats to your success!

Do you journal? It's a fantastic predictor of future success. The things you write about, you think about differently - you can put your brain to work "behind the scenes" solving challenges while you go about your business IF you put pen to paper! On today's episode Brian and Robin Joy (two great coaches on the ProvenAmazonCourse.com team) discuss how journaling impacted their business and the practical strategies they use to tap into the power of writing down their progress and desired future outcomes!
