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.

Questions and comments:
Jim shares how we are a community working together and not competitors working against each other! The primary reason behind Jim’s teaching is because only 16-18% of all retail economic activity is online so there is a lot of opportunity for everyone! He also reminds the listeners how important relationships are in building your business!
New sellers should watch this video to learn what the replens model is: https://Silentjim.com/introvideo.
Jim explains how often times another seller will provide the safety certificate that is needed for the listing (only 1 seller has to provide it). So an approach can be to just sit on your inventory for a little while and wait for someone else to provide it (if you aren’t able to locate it yourself)
Jim reminds the listeners that we are looking for underserved ASINs, not winning products! Jim encourages newer sellers to listen to Podcast #554 - Ignore the Amazon “buy box” more if you want to sell more Amazon Replens. Remember the “rule of 3” - if you buy it for $8, then you’ll want to sell it for $24. Also, it’s highly recommended that new sellers join the KickStart Boot Camp (must be a Proven Amazon Course student)
How are results and feedback…” Provenbotsourcing.com is a program that scapes retail websites which helps sellers find potential replens. It’s proving to be a very effective way to source but certainly not the only way
Jim discusses what IP concerns are and explains how to look at the Keepa graph to determine if this might be a concern - look for the “skateboard ramp of death.” Jeff Schick is an attorney that is vetted with Jim’s program and is highly recommended for any legal assistance needed
Jim discusses Amazon to Amazon flips and how to go about doing that properly - do not use prime discount for ordering
The guest mentions Coach Susan Gilbert’s “micro goals to macro visions” and talks about how slow and steady is the way to build your business! Jim also discusses pricing and how it can be challenging for new replen sellers
Jim explains the difference between scanning barcodes (Easter egg hunt model) vs searching for underserved ASINs on Amazon. Nathan mentions “spokes in the marketing world” and how much opportunity there is for selling online! Nate mentions Jim’s candlelight vs cake analogy
Jim answers the guest’s question regarding how to get the most value out of the coaching program! Jim again recommends newer sellers listen to podcast episode #554 - “Ignore the Amazon buy box more if you want to sell more Amazon replens!” The head of the coaching team, Nathan Bailey, also adds to the discussion on the coaching program! Jim summarizes by saying, “Stay encouraged with the team (other sellers), go faster with a coach!”
Jim answers the guest’s question about how to best balance time! Nathan suggests using a business journal to help manage time in order to be successful and mentions the 4 D’s in business - 1) Do It, 2) Delegate it, 3) Drop it, 4) Delay it
