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!

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!

On today's all new podcast episode we interview a couple who has been in our community as students of the ProvenAmazonCourse.com for about six years. They've seen periods of incredible success as well as some challenging times, but they've learned and grown and diversified their way into a nice business.

 

They have some great stories to share about their journey and there's a little something for everyone as they discuss what's worked, what didn't work so well and where they are going from here. They've done it together as a couple and the sky is the limit for this dedicated team of two!

 

They are picking up momentum currently on Walmart as well - a topic we plan to hit very heavily in some break out sessions at the upcoming TheProvenConference.com event in Orlando!

Today's guest Kip and Wendy Sykes

Mar 2, 2024

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

 

We covered episode #763 From zero e-commerce experience to a multiple five figure biz in a few months.

The full episode can be heard at https://silentjim.com/podcast

 

This podcast features 53 year old twins Jerry and John, who have worked together for over 30 years! Jerry details how they found Jim Cockrum and what drew them to this community! John shares how they toyed with the idea of joining a “done for you program” but ended up not going that route - thankfully!

 

Jim reiterates how so many programs (about 98%) are scams and a quick way to lose money. Jim recommends a “litmus test” before joining any program and that starts with finding their community and hanging out with them for a while.

 

The guests share how they are doing both RA (retail arbitrage) and OA (online arbitrage). Jim talks about the “lightbulb moment” that happens when it clicks for new sellers. Jim mentions Podcast #744

 

The guests share how when they 1st started. They also discuss how more brands became ungated for them when they reached about $7000 in sales. The guests talk about how they primarily do FBA now that they have proof of concept that this strategy works! Jim and the guests talk about the analogy with sports when it comes to Amazon selling

 

The guest shares how he was skeptical going into his 1st conference because he is a “connoisseur of good leadership” Jim says that “leaders produce leaders!” and that leadership is a topic that he is very passionate about!

 

The guest shares, as a new seller, he feels that finding test worthy ASINs is the #1 priority and Jim wholeheartedly agrees! Repricers are discussed as well Jim talks with the guests what to expect as their business grows! He recommends looking into branded bundles . Jim reminds everyone that a rising tide raises all ships!

 

The guests ask Jim how he recommends increasing their sales to $100-$200k: Jim shares a Dave Ramsey principle about small businesses: The 1st person you hire should be someone who goes out and kills something and brings it back into the cave…”

 

The guests share their thankfulness for Jim, his community and all the available help. Jim shares how he views his work as a ministry and how he loves what he does! Jim says how he doesn’t want followers but instead success stories coming out of this community! 

 

Jim has a discussion with vetted insurance agent Ashlin Hadden regarding insuring your Amazon business! This segment is packed full of information that all sellers should listen to!

Feb 29, 2024

Today's ProvenAmazonCourse.com student interview is with a guy who blasted past six figures in total sales pretty fast and you'll love hearing his inspirational story!

 

He's following the REPLENS model and is really doing well with the "above buy box" method as you'll soon hear.

 

As a matter of fact he recently sold 20 units in a single day of a product that was priced well above all the other sellers who were fighting over the "buy box" using the strategy that we teach in the PAC. He tells all about this strategies and how's he's gone form "clueless newbie" to Amazon selling success story in such a short time.

 

Also note - he'll be at the TheProvenConference.com event in Orlando in May with 100s of other members of this community - plan to meet him there!

After having coached thousands of students over 20 years with the ProvenAmazonCourse.com and our coaching program, we've noticed many patterns among those who go on to build sustained success and those who struggle or never make it at all.

 

One of the biggest keys that ensures you'll go far and do quite well is an often disregarded, yet highly relevant factor that is so vital it's worth reminding our students about repeatedly.

 

RELATIONSHIPS!

 

There are actually seven key relationships we've identified that our most successful students seem to all have top of mind. Likewise, it seems struggling entrepreneurs seem to consistently have one or more of these key relationships out of alignment or out of focus.

 

If you want to maximize your e-commerce and Amazon business, ideally you'll have all these relationships in a healthy state: community (associates), mentor(s), an apprentice, a coach, suppliers, team and family.

 

Let's talk about it on today's podcast episode. Also, you can watch it here on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/4TDT6d2GRmU

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.

 

Jim shares how the team has coached over 10,000 students and there are so many success stories pinned at the top of the My Silent Team Facebook page! Jim discusses how we start practically all new sellers with the Replens Model - which basically means we are filling the underserved shelf space at Amazon. Jim likes to use the phrases “test worthy listings” or sell at break even (worst case scenario). Jim has posted MANY examples.

 

A guest shares how she is building her business but is discouraged with her profits so she asks Jim how she can improve her numbers. Picking losers is a great way to pick winners!” - it’s a learning process! Robin Joy discusses the Kick Start Bootcamp, which is 4 group coaching sessions for sellers who have purchased The Proven Amazon Course (PAC) to help them get up and running The listener asks Jim if the “new selection recommendation list” (a list of ASINs that Amazon provides) is a good idea to use? Jim explains how there are “good ways” and “bad ways” to use these lists as well as leads lists/buy lists.

 

The guest has questions about shipments going to multiple fulfillment centers (FC), which Coach Robin Joy answers. Jim also answers the guest’s questions about hiring a VA, Jim recommends listening to Podcast #714 for a more thorough discussion!: “Very practical lesson learned after working with numerous overseas virtual assistants who help run my business.”

 

Jim, head of Coaching Matt Thompson and Coach Jim is so excited about 2024 and shares several new and upcoming things that everyone can look forward to! Matt Thompson and Robin Joy discuss the pros and cons of The 100 ASIN challenge vs coaching in response to a guest’s question.

 

The guest asks Jim about an issue he is having when he sends his inventory into FBA. He mentions how the “fear points” that sellers have are often new opportunities to learn from! Coach Matt shares the following mantra when working with replens: “Some will, most won’t, next…” 

 

Jim answers a listener's question, “I’m new, what do I do here?” Watch the following modules in the PAC: 1) Amazon 2) The Replens Course 3) Advanced Keepa training. Jim explains what the Replens model is and that the Kick Start program can be joined at any point once the PAC is purchased!

Feb 22, 2024

For a few years now we've had a strategy we've loved sharing with our ProvenAmazonCourse.com and coaching students that interestingly seems to be more easily grasped by our students who have LESS Amazon selling experience.

 

Experienced sellers seem to struggle with this "above the buy box" concept because it's so simple that it goes over their heads quite often as they attempt to over complicate it!

 

A bit of background:

Did you know that every day on Amazon millions of shoppers are NOT looking for the lowest price on any given product, but they are looking for the FASTEST DELIVERY! Once you understand that Amazon has nearly 200 warehouses around the U.S. it starts to make sense that there's no way these various warehouses can meet the speed demands of the millions of shoppers without help.

 

Understanding these factors means there's a simple, massive opportunity right under your nose that you're almost certainly ignoring unless you've heard our "above the buy box" strategy explained. Today's episode breaks it down for you!

 

At the end of this episode you'll hear from someone who has been in ecommerce 26 years who has an incredible business model that I'm eager to share with you - you can also come meet our guest "Brandon" in Orlando at the upcoming TheProvenConference.com event in May! Stay tuned until the end of the show for our short discussion.

Feb 19, 2024

If there's one rule of thumb with ecommerce it's this:

Things are always changing.

 

There's one business model however that we have been bullish about for the past 6+ years and we continue to be increasingly excited about for the future as Amazon needs sellers with this skills set more and more!

 

The evidence is strong as student success stories continue to roll in! I'm talking about the REPLENS business model as taught in the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course.

 

Perhaps you've heard many of the 100's of success stories from the students of the Proven Amazon Course REPLENS strategy on our podcast, but did you know that we've recently made major investments into updating the "PAC" course? We've been adding dozens of new, specific strategies as well as overhauling the "tech" to help make your experience as an Amazon selling student as powerful and prosperous as possible!

 

Today I spend time talking to Jimmy Smith who is the leader on our team who systemized the REPLENS model nearly 5 years ago. We talk about what we've learned and how we've made your odds of success with the models we teach even better with the big recent changes we've made.

 

We also have news for you about the coming live event in May (TheProvenConference.com) as well updates on the other unique services we provide Amazon sellers and the ecommerce community we serve.

Feb 17, 2024

In today's weekend episode we have highlights of a prior show. In this segment we discuss both our Amazon Influencer training and our Branded Bundles training. We also include the benefits of attending our annual live event. 

 

We covered episode #731 - While recovering 18 months from back surgery, she built incredible Amazon income streams. The full episode can be heard at https://silentjim.com/podcast

 

Jim tells listeners how they can get a free copy of his updated book - Silent Sales Machine by texting the word “free” to 507-800-0090 or visiting https://silentsalesmachine.com/ssm11/ffv11

 

The guest discusses how she started her Amazon business with a Private label branded bundle item. It’s important to note that it’s NOT recommended that new sellers start with PL. Both Jim’s free podcast, as well as The Proven Amazon Course (PAC), are great places for newer sellers to start. 

 

The guest discusses her background and how she got into e-commerce to begin with and then how Covid, followed by a big back surgery, launched her into being a business building warrior through the many challenges she faced. The guest shares about her mastermind group and how they work together, collaborate, help and encourage each other. Jim discusses the https://provenazinfluencer.com course and the https://provenbrandedbundles.com course. 

 

The guest is utilizing both of these models as streams of income Jim and the guest discuss the Amazon Influencer Program in more detail using Amazon’s platform Jim and the guest discuss the upcoming Proven conference - May 23-25, 2024. More information can be found at: https://theprovenconference.com.

 

The guest highlights benefits from attending a past conference - building relationships, learning content and identifying areas she wants to learn more about. Jim discusses “right ideas” vs “good ideas.” The guest also discusses the combination of being a brand owner as well as a an influencer, at which point Jim has a lightbulb moment how these two courses complement each other.

 

Jim asks the guest to share why she feels The Proven Conference stands above other conferences: 

1) it digs deep on content in a way you can move your business forward (as opposed to superficial teaching)

2) some changes are needed with the timing of the VIP program and

3) some suggestions for an “inspiration track!” The guest really encourages new sellers to join a mastermind and Jim emphasizes turning our focus outward to help others! On the Facebook page, there are directions in one of the top videos on how to find others who live close to you!

So many CLASSIC red flags... but now he's seeing stability and growth and he's loving the process!

 

If you'd like to hear what NOT TO DO as well as WHAT WORKS on Amazon, this is a great episode for you!

We all started small and built over time - this episode breaks down the reality of the Amazon selling models we've taught to 1,000s of students.

Today's guest: Will Abrams

Feb 10, 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.

 

From the team highlights:

Jim talks about the My Silent Team Facebook page which now has 74,000 members strong! The purpose of this Facebook group is to teach creative ways to make money online with Amazon as the primary focus because ½ of all online transactions occur on Amazon.com! Replens is the base model our group teaches for new sellers! The Proven Amazon Course is a learning library - “for on time learning!” 100% of JIm’s income has been via e-commerce for the past 20 years! Jim’s podcast, Silent Sales Machine Radio, is completely free to listen to. If interested in pursuing coaching, SilentJim.com/bookacall for more info

 

 

Jim discusses his good friend, Rabbi Daniel Lapin, and highly recommends his new book called The Holistic You - which integrates the 5 F’s - faith, family, fitness, finance and friendship:

https://www.amazon.com/Holistic-You-Integrating-Finances-Friendships/dp/1394163487

 

The conference will be held May 2024 in Orlando, FL! https://theprovenconference.com for more information! Jim feels this is one of the best Amazon conferences available because the people teaching the classes are actual Amazon sellers themselves and speak from personal selling experience!

 

Jim explains that about 95% of new sellers start by looking at Amazon selling through the wrong lens - a mindset shift is needed to look for “testworthy ASINs” as opposed to “profitable products!” Jim uses a bag of marshmallows as an example to illustrate how a new seller can look for test worthy ASINs. Jim also discusses the Kick Start Boot Camp (for PAC members) which includes 4 group coaching sessions with Coach Robin Joy for about $40!

 

Jim talks through an example of a profitable ASIN involving tea and recommends Podcast #369 to learn more about Keepa!

 

Jim explains his process for pricing (set price and leave it for 30-45 days) and then lower it to break even to get it moving if needed. Jim recommends listeners check out Podcast #554 - Ignore The Amazon “buy box” if you want to sell more Amazon Replens

 

Coach Robin Joy recommends the following categories for new sellers which tend to be open and a great place to start - home and kitchen, office supplies, arts and crafts, pet supplies (not food), patio, lawn and garden, industrial and scientific. Jim explains that as new sellers get 30-40 sales under their belt, Amazon will start to trust them and sellers will naturally become ungated in more categories!

 

The guest discusses difficulties he is having as an international seller with his billing (LLC address) and shipping addresses (prep center) not matching and as a result, having a hard time getting ungated in Lego (and a different home address on file with Amazon). Jim talks through thoughts he has on this topic and recommends both the International Selling Course in the PAC and asking for help in the free FB group

 

Jim answers some FBA prep and ship questions regarding which items can go in a box together as well as expiration dates

 

Jim answers some questions regarding a newer course - www.ProvenBotSourcing.com and also mentions www.Profitseekerpro.com. Jim and the guest also discuss systems and how they help automate your business!

 

Jim discusses the Keepa graph and how far back in time sellers need to go in order to decide if it is a test worthy ASIN. Jim discusses avoiding listings that are on lead lists and have a significant rise in sellers happening. Personally, he looks back 6-9 months in general and a year if it’s a seasonal item to get a good idea of the selling history

 

Jim was personally invited to the Amazon Accelerate Conference and had the opportunity to ask questions at the director level of Amazon! (with Claire O’Donnell)

 

Jim discusses how Amazon divides sellers into 2 categories - those who are selling their own brand and those who are selling others’ brands

 

Jim discusses how about 95% of the time it is best to sell FBA. The premise of the guest’s question is really when to also include FBM. Jim’s opinion is that new sellers should really focus on FBA while learning the Amazon system

Today's guest is a busy pastors wife with five kids with no prior business or ecommerce experience, but she's carved out some time to build an incredible business on Amazon using the REPLENS model as taught in the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course. She started out selling books (which didn't ultimately work out as you'll hear), but she soon learned of REPLENS and went on to get some impressive results! She's doing so great that we are bringing her onto the team as a coach!

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: If I source IDENTICAL product at a discount from another country, can I sell it in the US on Amazon? What should I look out for when doing this?

You'll learn how he sources, what strategies he's using and some very practical lessons for all Amazon sellers and ecommerce warriors on today's episode! We also discuss his upcoming role at the TheProvenConference.com event in May - we hope you can join us!

Today's guest : Ted Harton

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.

 

Jim discusses the My Silent Team Facebook page and how the hundreds of inspirational successes are posted so new sellers can see that this works! It is easy for new sellers to become distracted with different business models but this group really emphasizes the Replens model as the place to start! This is not a get rich quick scheme but something that takes time to build and succeed with!

 

In this segment, Jim talks about what our group is, what we have to offer and why we’re worth listening to!

 

Jim discusses how he has used the internet creatively for his multiple streams of income, which has supported his family for over 20 years!

 

The guest asks Jim a question about being able to source a large enough quantity of products in the store to be able to test an ASIN (Retail Arbitrage = RA). Jim also reminds the listeners how important relationships are in this business!

 

Although the Proven Conference 2023 has already happened, Jim discusses what the conference looks like and how it really is an “abundance minded community” - lots of relationships developed, friendships began and conversations had! 

(https://theprovenconference.com/ for all the information you need for the 2024 conference!)

 

Jim discusses ungating and how ungated categories include: Sports and outdoor, household goods, kitchen and bath, office supplies, pet supplies (not food) and arts and crafts. New sellers can also go to the magnifying glass on the top of the My Silent Team Facebook page and search for “ungating” or “ungated” to read many posts on this topic!

 

https://provenamazoncourse.com/safebookprofits/ for a course on a newer way to sell books! Jim also gives a powerful example of the Nike brand and an experience on Amazon that all sellers should listen to!

 

Jim discusses the Replens model and how it can be a very profitable business model! According to Jim, “It’s a beautiful business model!”
