Today's guest is a ProvenAmazonCourse.com and coaching student living in (and from) Bangkok. He's followed the REPLENS training and has built an amazing business as you'll soon hear.

 

I was blown away at his unique approach and how he's overcome what some would see as merely obstacles (English as his second language, lives outside the US but sells successfully on Amazon.com in the US, local currency weak against US dollar etc.)

 

Those who pay attention to this episode today however should come away with two conclusions:

 

  1. I don't have any excuse to NOT be doing this business model, and...

  2. The way our guest "Fino" does the business should unlock incredible new possibilities in your mind.

 

Episodes like this one really validate that we are in an incredible age of massive opportunities!

Today's guest "Fino" from Bangkok

Jan 31, 2024

On today's new podcast episode we discuss "What’s the Worst That Can Happen? What’s the Best That Can Happen? How do we Mitigate Risk as Amazon sellers?"

 

Other questions include:

 

How many units should I test when trying new products on Amazon?

What's the ONE factor that determines my success with the Amazon strategies we teach?

 

Our coaches Brian and Robin have helped hundreds of students succeed with the Amazon models we teach (as part of the ProvenAmazonCourse.com collection of strategies), and today we have some insights into the realities of the model.

 

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: Can sellers get suspended for tying up other seller's inventory?

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.

 

She reveals what she sells, how she finds the winners and how crazy it was having her first month where she shipped $20,000 worth of profitable items herself after having learned the systems just a few short months earlier!

Today's guest Raquel Herbias

Jan 27, 2024

In today's episode, we have highlights of a prior show put together by the podcast team. This episode highlights an awesome opportunity in creating branded bundles and selling them on Amazon. Our guest has been doing it for years and is quite successful in more ways than just monetarily.

 

We covered episode #709 - Meet a seven figure branded bundle Amazon seller who employs special needs employees

 

Highlights:

 

Jim gives an introduction to the show’s guest, Kim, who is building a beautiful business using the branded bundle strategy! This is not a model for new Amazon students but rather those who are well established with a business. (more info can be found at: https://provenbrandednundles.com). Additionally, she is providing incredible opportunities for people with special needs to work in her business!

 

The guest details her 20 year history of e-commerce and how her dream of being able to employ people with special needs came to fruition!

 

The guest talks about her purpose driven business and how the employees are loyal, happy to work, good at repetitive tasks and meticulous, which makes every day a good day!

 

Jim encourages the guest to write a book based on her incredible experience she has with not only building a business but also creating employment for people with special needs!

 

The guest shares some tips and pain points she’s experienced with the branded bundle model. She feels her bundles have been successful due to many of them being “universal” in terms of recipients. Also a word of caution - be careful how you list products within the bundles. Be willing to navigate pain points and persist through the challenges! And always remember your WHY!

On today’s new podcast episode we meet a longtime friend of mine who recently found himself in a major career change and contacted me about selling on Amazon. He’s doing great as both a ProvenAmazonCourse.com student and coaching student. We are even talking to him now about possibly becoming a coach on our team because his business has grown so rapidly so quickly and he has an incredible teacher's heart!

 

You'll enjoy hearing the insights of what he’s learned along the way so far as well as the tremendous rewards of building a business with family.

Jan 22, 2024

Our guest today recently graduated from college, but now he's more excited about his Amazon business than his previous traditional career path.

 

He's a ProvenAmazonCourse.com student who got connected to our community through word of mouth (which is the only way anyone ever hears about us).

 

He's just had a huge December - which was only his second full month of being an Amazon seller. He asks a lot of great questions and gives a lot of great tips on this episode - you'll learn a ton while listening, I promise!

Today's guest Evan Coleman

Jan 20, 2024

In today's episode, we have highlights of a prior show. This episode includes selling on eBay, Amazon coaching with Coaches Larry and Sue Pruett, getting systems in place, hiring a VA through Legends, getting IP complaints and his store deactivated, appealing the suspension and getting reinstated and more. What a journey!

 

We covered episode #703 - From working in the CIA to building a beautiful Amazon business FT    You can hear the full episode at https://silentjim.com/podcast

 

Today's highlights:

 

Ryan's story - The guest talks about his journey including writing a book called Introduction to Sports Memorabilia by Ryan Walsh, starting a prep center with a friend (called Encore Business Group) and triumphing over some very difficult family situations during this time!

 

Our https://prepcenternetwork.com is our resource that lists prep centers. Ryan's prep center website is linked here: https://encorebusinessgroup.com/

 

This segment is an encouragement to anyone experiencing difficult life situations! The guest discusses in detail some of the hurdles he overcame including family illness and divorce. Jim shares how in these types of situations, there are two possible outcomes - sink or swim! Jim correlates what the guest shares to the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (and Celebrate Recovery) - starting with Step 1 - admitting I’m a mess and ending with Step 12 - helping others get out of what I was in! A favorite saying of Ryan's is, “Pressure makes diamonds or dust!” 

 

The guest shares how he is running his prep center FT, maintaining a presence on AZ utilizing Replens, trying different models for his business and continuing to study The Proven Amazon Course (PAC). Jim puts in a plug for the Coaching Program, which consists of more than 60 coaches and to date, has coached nearly 10,000 sellers!  Jim and the guest discuss this Proven Product Partnering as a business model (found as a module in PAC) which teaches sellers how to partner with brands to get their products on Amazon. 

 

The guest shares details about his previous career, which was working for the CIA for 7 years. During this time he traveled the world internationally but started to have health issues. These experiences helped him recognize the poverty around the world and the appreciation for all we have. Jim reminds the listeners how blessed we are in the US and what an “overcomer spirit” the guest has.  The guest reminds the listeners that there is light after the darkness and Jim ends by saying that this episode is really going to encourage others!

Jan 18, 2024

Today's guest still has a full-time job and is taking online college courses... and has a young daughter but he's squeezed into the cracks of his life the Amazon REPLENS selling business model that we teach in the ProvenAmazonCourse.com training - and it's going really well!

 

He started in the Summer of 2023 and he's ramped up incredibly fast!

 

He shares how he finds great inventory, the tools he's using, the power of doing some of your own shipping (FBM), the power of local relationships and also how he's well on his way to having a seven figure business.

 

*** On today’s podcast episode, Jim mistakenly refers to podcast episode 756 when he meant to refer to number 754. That’s the episode where Khang talks about his fully automated $3 million amazon REPLENS business.

Today's guest requested we not reveal his full name because he's still full-time employed.

 

Jan 17, 2024

On today's new "coaches corner" podcast episode Robin Joy and Brian answer several why questions related to the 100 ASIN challenge that we teach to ensure success on Amazon.

 

They also discuss a powerful benefit beyond ASINs being added as a replen and that is Amazon's Account Health Rating (AHR) 

 

“To ensure your AHR is evaluated in context of the size of your business, you also gain 4 points for every 200 successful orders you fulfilled over the last 180 days.” https://sellercentral.amazon.com/help/hub/reference/G200205250?ref=ahd-ahr-lm

 

When they say, “Use a 3-step check and a 4-week test to build a 5-figure business in 6 months or less…if you’re consistent!” What is the significance of 5-figures and 6 months?

Why is $10,000/mo in sales significant?

 

Why is 6 months or less significant?

 

Why is 100 ASINs significant?

 

Famous Quote

Strength doesn’t come from what you CAN do; it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t — Rikki Rogers (author)

 

Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: Can a seller actually get themselves into trouble with Amazon by reporting other sellers and attempting to build a case against other sellers?

Jan 15, 2024

Imagine selling thousands of items monthly in the US on Amazon.com from New Zealand - without ever seeing or touching your inventory!

 

Our guest today knew he needed a big change when one of his sons began to struggle and really needed his family nearby. As a school principal with a busy schedule our guest for today's podcast episode began seeking an internet based opportunity and he found our community.

 

To make a long story short, it's gone incredibly well and he's built a seven figure business using strategies from the ProvenAmazonCourse.com training and he's now a coach on our team as well!

 

This is a touching story of a family that made a major pivot and came out on top. Prepare to be inspired!

Today's guest: Jim Seumanu from New Zealand

 

 

 

Jan 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.

 

Highlights grabbed by the podcast team:

 

Jim introduces himself as well as the community, jokingly referring to this segment as a “Jim-fomercial!”

 

Coach Robin Joy discusses the Kick Start bootcamp - for less than $40 new sellers (have to be PAC members) receive 4 group coaching sessions and access to a private Facebook group that will help new sellers get set up quickly and send their 1st product into Amazon FBA! (silentjim.com/kickstart for more info) 

 

 

Coach Brian Olsen talks about the Replens accelerated workshop, which is happening May 21-22, 2024 (right before The Proven Conference!). More info can be found at provenamazoncourse.com/100 and theprovenconference.com.

 

 

The guest shares an encouraging update on her business, which Jim says is “proof of concept!” silentjim.com/bookacall for more info on the coaching program.

 

 

Coaches Brian and Robin Joy Olsen discuss category and brand restrictions for new sellers, as well as ungating. They also recommend Podcast #612 - “I STILL can’t find any Amazon replens - someone help!,” which contains information regarding “the 3 step check.”(watch on YouTube rather than the podcast for additional info).

 

Watch the YouTube version here: https://youtu.be/7SCqsPUjUSE

 

 

Jim gives an overview of the Jan 1, 2024 podcast episode on the Amazon influencer program (Podcast #759 - Many are getting big monthly payouts from Amazon for simply uploading short videos to Amazon): 1) anyone can do it 2) doesn’t cost anything 3) involves uploading videos to Amazon 4) if buyers watch them and buy the product as a result, then you get paid a % of the sale.

 

 

Jim talks about one of his favorite podcasts of 2023 - #754 - “Fully automated OA REPLENS business doing multiple seven figures.”

 

 

Coach Brian Olson talks about avoiding generic listings and any ASINs that have the brand misspelled in the title. He compares finding ASINs to looking for puzzle pieces. Jim recommends new sellers listen to the concepts presented in Podcast episodes #554 - Ignore the Amazon “buy box” more if you want to sell more Amazon REPLENS, #555 - Ten ways to find great REPLENSto sell on Amazon and #612 - I STILL can’t find any Amazon replens - someone help! 

 

Coach Brian answers a question regarding an ASIN with 1 FBA seller vs 20 FBM sellers - and proposes some ideas why the FBM sales are happening much more frequently.

Today's provenamazoncourse.com success story interview is with a dad who works full-time but still squeezes in a few hours per week and has built an amazing business selling REPLENS and branded bundles.

 

In his own words, "great inventory is everywhere once you understand the system".

 

He started with selling used books, but quickly realized that was a grind he had little time to commit to. Once he got into REPLENS and then soon afterwards studied bundles, things took off!

Today's guest: Jonathan Barnhisel

 

Jan 10, 2024

On today's new "coaches corner" podcast episode we explain why we see our unique approach to Amazon selling we've developed called REPLENS is the lowest risk, lowest learning curve and highest odds of success Amazon seller strategy (and quite possibly the best opportunity in all of ecommerce). If you aren't aware - we teach the REPLENS model in the ProvenAmazonCourse.com course as just one of the ways to do very well on Amazon as an ecommerce warrior, but it's also where we start just about every student.

 

We really break it down today and explain our rationale.

 

When you compare this strategy for NEW SELLERS to the Private Label/Private Listings, Wholesale and other strategies, Selling/Reselling Existing Products…AKA “Replens” the way we teach it is hands down the best place to start - which is why we have 100's of success stories to share on our podcast alone - never mind the 1000's of posts in our Facebook group from those doing very well with this rapidly expanding opportunity!

 

Stay tuned at the end of the episode today! Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of JeffSchick.com answers the question: We estimate about 90% of all Amazon Section 3 suspensions from Q4 are now reinstated and an even higher percentage than that are reinstated in the PAC seller community. What was that all about? Why did it happen? How can we avoid that in the future?

Jan 6, 2024

In today's episode, we have highlights of a prior show. This episode spotlights the benefit of being part of a like minded community, touches on bundles and how a VA fits into their business model.

 

We covered episode #688 - Forming Relationships in our Amazon seller community pays off big

 

Today's highlights:

 

The 1st guest details her eCommerce journey that has led to this point in time!

 

The 2nd guest then shares her journey to date…

 

The guests emphasize the importance of relationships in this business! Jim talks about their decision to brand register individually reminding the listeners of Dave Ramsey’s quote - “The only ship that won’t sail is a partnership!” Jim encourages the listeners with this incredibly important concept - the people you surround yourself with - that is your business success! And then quotes Jim Rohn - “Show me the people you’re hanging out with and the content you’re consuming and I’ll show you your future!”

 

The guests discuss their business models which utilize RA, OA, wholesale for replens and branded bundles as well as a little treasure hunting!

 

As Jim and the guests discuss their bundles, he reminds listeners about The Proven Brand Building course that included within The Proven Amazon Course (PAC)

 

Jim shares 2 thoughts - 1) A VA is no better at sourcing than their seller is - the seller needs their own system and processes in place in order to train their VA to do it the way the seller wants it done  2) The Proven Bot Sourcing content course (not in The PAC yet) - is great for those sellers who have extensive wholesales lists to work through and mentions that OA simplified is a great training course as well.  (in the PAC). There is also a course in The PAC that teaches how to find a VA!

 

Jim talks with the sellers about growing their businesses! - from hiring VAs, to finding people to help with prep and then moving to a prep center. The hardest work sellers will do is from $0-$5000, after that processes are in place and it becomes easier to grow the business! 

 

The guests give some additional helpful tips: 1) When ready for a prep center, be ready to really amp up the inventory volume! 2) Be prepared to pivot with your business model(s) as needed! 3) As you continue to build your business, keep good people and good systems in place and build on those! 

 

Jim and the guests discuss the branded bundle model in more depth! There is a LOT of opportunity in this business model! Proven Brand Building course is in The PAC for those who want to learn more!

 

Jim discusses a variety of funding options for the guests’ Amazon business including credit cards, an Amazon loan (not recommended), Accrue Me, Seven figure funding and loans from family/friends.

“There has to be an easier way!”

  • We hear this a lot from new coaching clients and those in the community who are just starting out

 

  • Why is it so challenging in the early days? We tend to stick with what we know and this business isn’t anything we know

 

 

Job Replacement or Income Replacement?

  • If you’re considering this opportunity or are just getting started consider your motivation

 

  • As long as your job has a higher priority than your Amazon business you’ll struggle to replace your income

 

  • The beauty of this business is that the missing out on other things can have a limited time period associated with them until you get scaled and outsourced

 

 

 

Use a 3-step check and a 4-week test to build a 5-figure business 

  • This year, the 2 days preceding the Proven Conference we’re hosting a Replens Accelerator Workshop

 

  • We teach attendees a system for identifying & testing test worthy ASINs that you can add to your replens list. The goal is to build to 100 ASINs on your replens list within 6 months

 

  • We give you the system to complete that initiative and there are some other real benefits

 

  • This workshop offers a unique, collaborative learning environment where you can engage in real-time problem-solving, benefit from immediate feedback, learn from the questions and experiences of fellow entrepreneurs

 

 

It’s not a replacement for coaching!

 

  • One-on-one coaching provides you with tailored guidance, adapting to your unique challenges

 

  • The workshop helps you build skills and a plan for your next 6 months in business

 

  • There is a discount if you commit to both coaching and the workshop

 

  • If you attend the workshop we can also be your coaches

As you've heard from a handful of guests lately, many in our community are beginning to get paid very well (thousands in recurring payments in many cases) for simply making videos of products they love and uploading them to Amazon!

 

These aren't even products that are being sold by the video maker! It's just a demo video showing the product!

 

That's right - no costs, no fancy tools or software... just simple videos showing products you like can get you paid! We are excited to launch the ProvenAZinfluencer.com community - this is going to change a lot of lives!

 

It's yet another exciting way to get paid by Amazon and create more online residual streams of cash flow! Hear today's podcast guests discuss how the new Amazon video review system pays you to talk about products!

Today's guests Jim Ed and Andrew Lanciani

Dec 30, 2023

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?)

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.
