Have you been crushing it on Amazon and you feel like you’re ready to take some risks? Conversely, do you think Amazon is crushing you, and you don’t know how you’re going to make things work?  This week I’m focusing on the mindsets of successful and professional e-commerce sellers and talking about how to take yourself out of a defeatist mindset to one where you make great decisions.

 

 

 “Know that tomorrow is another great day and there are going to be amazing opportunities – you just have to be willing to go out there and get them.”

 

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • Your preparation strategy for Q1.
  • I let you know my insights into the disempowering story line.
  • I reveal my personal story about fact finding and changing your mindset context can get you out of a negative head space.
  • You’ll hear an enlightening story about how my coach helped me see a negative situation in a new light, which changed my perspective on what happened in the business.
  • I walk you through what you need to do to figure out the numbers so you can be comfortable with short term and long term goals.
  • You need structure and goals in your business life, and I help you maintain your accountability. 

 

3 Quick Tips for New Merchant Fulfilled Amazon Sellers:

  1. Look at the facts as a start to changing your mindset.
  2. If you’re feeling overwhelmed in your business take a temporary step back in Q1 so you can recoup your energy.
  3. Prepare for what’s next and be clear on what actions you must take to achieve the results you want.

Have you ever wondered whether you could sell your Amazon FBA business or if Amazon would even allow a transaction like this? If so, how would it work and how would you determine how much your business is really worth to a potential buyer? On today’s episode, I’m joined by Joe Valley of Quiet Light Brokerage. Quiet Light Brokerage is a business brokerage firm that focuses 100% on internet-based businesses, and what sets them apart from their competition is that – not only do they have experience with buying online businesses, everyone at the firm has personal experience with building and selling an online business!

Joe has personally sold his online nutritional supplements company back in 2010 through Quiet Light, and today, he shares his valuable insight and tips on what Amazon sellers need to focus on before they decide to sell their business.

 

“If you don’t know the real current value of your business, you can’t set goals.” – Joe Valley

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • Is an Amazon FBA business sellable?
  • What makes an Amazon business valuable to business brokers and buyers?
  • What determines the value range of your business?
  • How long does the process of selling an online business typically take?
  • How does the “non-compete clause” work?
  • What are “clean books” and why is it important to keep your books clean instead of using an Excel spreadsheet?
  • If you have a good business that has value – there’s a buyer out there for it.

 

Things to focus on before selling your online business:

  1. Clean books.
  2. Multiple streams of income.
  3. High value product lines and relationships.
  4. Sales tax and Nexus.

This week, I’m discussing the logistics of taking out an Amazon loan or any loan to grow your business. When we’re at a conference or when we take calls from current or prospective clients, we’re often asked for advice concerning loans. So today I’ll share my insights about what adding debt could mean to you in your e-commerce business.

 

Amazon takes grit it is not a get rich quick scheme.

 

Today’s Topic Covers:

  • Will an Amazon loan help your business grow – do you really need more capital?
  • How to use an Amazon profit calculator to find out what your numbers mean.
  • What kind of income do you need to satisfy your lifestyle?
  • What the common motivations are in considering taking out a loan.

  • What are the most stressful months in terms of sales?
  • Pricing strategy.

 

 

3 Quick Tips for New Merchant Fulfilled Amazon Sellers:

  1. Focus on the actions that move you towards your original goal – don’t forget the reason why you started your venture!
  2. Don’t get caught up on what other sellers are doing, everyone’s end game is different.

This week, I’m at the PubCon Convention. This convention is filled with tons of great information and content! If you haven’t been in the past, I highly recommend you attend next year’s event. Today, though, I want to share with you some of the information that I have learned from the convention, specifically in regards to the future of SEO.

 

When people search on Amazon, they have an intent to buy or an intent to research to buy.

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • New sellers on Amazon may not be able to sell on Amazon FBA; however, Merchant Fulfilled is still an option.
  • Is the future of search and SEO segmented and how could it affect your business?
  • Disqualifying bad wholesale leads and unqualified buyers.
  • Providing content to create brand affinity.

 

3 Quick Tips for New Merchant Fulfilled Amazon Sellers:

  1. Have the box ready before you make the item available for shipping.
  2. Always assume the worst case scenario. Calculate shipping cost based off the farthest distance you think it will go and include the weight of the packaging materials.
  3. Be selective in the products you carry to avoid pricing wars.

Amazon recently announced their list of key holiday dates for 2016. This list really should have been titled “Christmas in November” because essentially that’s what it is. In previous years – like when I first started selling on Amazon – you could submit a ticket on the items you submitted if they weren’t checked into Amazon. This year, they’ve increased that time to 14 days. Previously, they wanted Black Friday and Christmas inventory set in no later than a week before the holiday date. However, this year, they’ve changed those dates: Black Friday items need to be in by November 9, and Christmas items need to be in by December 12.

A lot of changes have happened on the Amazon platform over the years, and more are likely to come over the next several years. The important thing is to never allow these changes to cause your business to hit the brakes! On today’s episode, we’re going to talk about this year’s Q4 changes, what you need to do to prepare for the Christmas in November season, and how to plan your inventory buying and selling strategies so they carry you through Q4 and straight into Q1.

 

“The way you play the next 4 weeks will really determine what profitability you have this Q4 season.” – Robyn Johnson

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • Using the “check in period” as a barometer to predict when you need to send in your inventory.
  • Keeping track of your buying and shipping goals.
  • Sending in small amounts of inventory, gradually increasing over time, to maximize efficiency and mitigate high Q4 storage fees.
  • Keeping your inventory quick and nimble at Amazon.
  • Multi-channel selling strategies and new-to-market brand items.
  • Considering “musical warehouse” issues
  • Sending to a distribution warehouse shortens your Q4 season.
  • Box level content can buy you approximately 8 extra days of the Christmas season.
  • Amazon shipping breaks and dimensional weight.
  • Planning your sale items – what should you consider selling?
  • Doing your homework – use a rolling 13-week cash flow and calculating your debt to income ratio.
  • Amazon loans and how to use that money wisely.
  • Selling velocity differences from December to January and how to plan your inventory to carry you into Q1.
  • Finding people that can help hold you accountable and focused on your goals.
  • Having a weekly strategic buying and shipping plan and what rules you will follow.
  • Asking for help – people want to contribute to you!

We are heading strong into the Q4 season right now. This is the time when many Amazon entrepreneurs experience something called Imposter Syndrome – the feeling of not being good enough; of feeling like everyone around you views you as more successful or more of an expert than you really feel. 

If you’ve ever felt like other people see you in a certain way but you still feel like you don’t have a firm handle on things – you know what I’m talking about. But, you know, other people’s opinions and perceptions of us often change faster than we anticipate! 

Today, I want to explain to you why you should stop viewing your level of success based on your gross sales every day, week, month, or year. You are worth more than your financial success. 

 

“Your self-worth and your business success is not necessarily tied to the amount in your bank account.” – Robyn Johnson 

 

Today’s Topics Cover: 

  • How do you identify your self-worth and your rate of success? 
  • The moment when you are waiting to see your hard work payoff is a really scary time.  
  • You have to realize that with or without your business results – you still have worth! 
  • The fact that you are willing to put yourself out there says something about who you are as a person. 
  • Repeat after me: I am not an imposter. I am enough. I am just on a journey like everyone else. 
  • Sometimes – especially when you feel like you’re not holding it all together – you simply have to let your team and staff run. 
  • Find ways to get out of your head – take a walk, take deep breaths, do whatever it takes to get out of those negative thoughts. 
  • It is really easy to get caught up in the money and lose sight of why you started your business in the first place. Take a step back, take a breath, and regroup. 
  • Focus your goals around profit and the kind of life you want. Not around gross sales. 
  • Stop comparing your successes and your business successes to others. 
  • You always have to have something in life worth failing at. Your business is worth failing and the only way you can grow is through failure. Brush yourself off and get back on the horse. 
  • The way you frame and talk about your business is going to be the way you view things. 
  • The way you hold yourself and your business is incredibly important! Don’t listen to your own negative thoughts. They limit your ability. Listen to the people in your life that think you are amazing because they probably have a more objective point of view. 
  • Embrace failure. It’s like fertilizer – it stinks, but it’s necessary to grow.

Q4 has officially started, and while most of us are running around frazzled, trying to keep up with all of the daily tasks and to-do’s we need to do in order to have a successful business and home life, it is vitally important that we maintain a positive mindset. Today on the show, I am joined by Certified Elite Life Coach and NLP Tara Virnick. Tara has worked in the insurance industry for the last 20 years, has earned her law degree, and currently specializes in teaching people how to overcome fears, attain goals, and transform their thought patterns to achieve higher success in their life and career.

8 Tips for Making Conscious Changes in Your Life & Business:

  2. Prioritize your day – chunk out your time, have a 10-minute meeting with yourself every morning.
  3. Take time out for yourself and your health.
  4. Get out of your head – it’s a bad, bad neighborhood.
  5. Think about everything you accomplished throughout the day and focus on things you want to do the next day. Celebrate the small wins.
  6. Take accountability action steps – journaling, goal setting, have an accountability partner.
  7. Know it’s okay if you can’t get everything done throughout the day.
  8. Take breaks – it helps your body refocus and recharge.

I’m coming to you LIVE from the amazing Retail Global Summit event and today I want to talk to you about the Black Hole Effect of the Q4 season. If you’re a seasoned Amazon Q4 seller – then you know what we’re talking about: that time when you begin to doubt yourself, decisions, and you really begin to feel like you’re trapped in a black hole!

If you’re new to the Q4 game, understand that these feelings are normal for every Amazon seller.

So, today, I wanted to talk to you all about the Black Hole Effect of Q4 and what steps you should be taking as you are preparing for the busy season that can help you mitigate these feelings and effects.

 

“Make sure you give yourself some grace & some space in Q4” – Robyn Johnson

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • Although Q4 is coming – It’s not going to start the day Q4 begins.
  • Some products don’t see a strong lift in sales until late-October to early-November… or later
  • Consider your Q4 goals.
  • Consider how you will ensure you have enough inventory at Amazon by Black Friday to hit your December goals.
  • Think about the systems you have in place for Q4… are they ready?
  • Consider outsourcing tasks.
  • Make sure you’re not spending more than you can lose.
  • Double-down on what is working.

 

5 Things to Focus on During the Q4 Calm Before the Storm:

  1. Doubling-down on things you have experience in.
  2. Closely monitor your Inventory Health Reports
  3. Buy what sells now.

Today, I’m chatting with Chris Anderson from Superhero Sellers. Chris has been a significant contributor across several Amazon online communities and Facebook groups and has become one of the most respected people throughout our community.

Chris got started as an entrepreneur as a young teenager, when he owned his own lawncare business mowing lawns throughout his local community. He has experience in internet marketing and online selling on platforms such as eBay and Etsy before launching his Amazon business. He started on Amazon with the goal of pivoting from retail arbitrage to selling private-label products and although he is still not selling private-label items, he has grown an incredibly successful business through retail arbitrage.

Today, he shares his thoughts, tips, ideas, and insight with our amazing listeners; talking about everything from FBA fundamental tips for beginners through making good money on items you purchased at regular, retail prices.

“You don’t need to be a math wizard, but you do need to have a basic understanding of business and economics.” – Chris Anderson

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • Why Chris decided not to sell private-label.
  • Fundamental FBA tips for beginners
  • Why starting your Amazon business through selling used books is a great way to start?
  • Why Chris feels that his Amazon business is the most valuable possession and bending rules is never a good idea.
  • Maximizing the ROI on your investment of time and money on your business.
  • Understanding your expenses
  • Why knowing your numbers and hiring and meeting with an accountant once a month can be extremely helpful for your business?
  • Sales Rank Charts and experimenting in different categories.
  • How to make good money on regular-priced items
  • Maximizing the ROI on regionally-exclusive brand items
  • Tips for using Google to search for answers to your Amazon questions

 

Chris’s Tips for Learning and Improving Your Business Skills:

  • Buy books about business
  • Take free online courses about business
  • Attend business courses at local Community Colleges

Getting into the Q4 Groove

Are you ready for the Q4 craze? Q4 is almost here and many of us are already starting the planning phase of the busiest season of the year. However, if this is your first – or even second – Q4 season, it may seem a bit (or a lot!) intimidating!

Rest assured, my friends, we are all been through the same thoughts and feelings you are experiencing – and we have all managed to get through it!

On today’s episode, my dear friend Rochelle joins me on the show to dive deep into what it takes to take a strong step into the Q4 season so that you can plan for a successful quarter.

 

The one thing that is really predictable about Q4 is that if you wait until you see those sales come in, you won’t have enough time to react.

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • It’s a myth that prices go up in Q4
  • Our first Q4 story
  • Q4 is not the “Wild, Wild West” anymore. If you can break out of that mentality and come up with a strategic plan for Q4, you will see significant results
  • Create a game plan for yourself
  • Q4, for accountants, starts in October. For Amazon sellers, it really starts in November
  • You can position your inventory to take advantage of the sale season as early as September
  • Setting reasonable Q4 Goals
  • How much Facebook time is really work-related?
  • Why we push retail arbitrage for the Q4 season
  • What you need to do to sell retail arbitrage this Q4 season
  • Outsourcing mundane tasks or tasks that don’t really matter
  • Business integrity and working with store owners, managers, and employees

 

Setting Reasonable Q4 Goals:

  • Take a close look at what you’ve been doing over the last three months
  • Look at your capital
  • Look at how much you want to invest over a certain period of time
  • Look at your gross sales
  • Look at how much you currently have in Amazon
  • Look at what you are profiting on average
  • Look at your turn-rate
  • Your Q4 Goal should be anywhere from 2-5 times your normal sales

Q4 is quickly approaching. Now is the time to begin to prepare our Amazon businesses for what’s to come in Q4. We know that a lot of people are still rattled over the recent changes happening on Amazon, however, the place you want to get to – the questions you need to ask yourself – is not ‘what is wrong,’ but rather ‘how can I, regardless of the circumstances, make this work for myself and my life.

When you can get to a place where you can be something beyond your immediate circumstances, it will transform who you are and the way you make decisions within your business. So, today, I want to talk with you about the things we feel you should be thinking about, analyzing, and considering as you prepare your business for the Q4 season.

 

“There is no ‘Q4 Fairy with fairy dust.’ Q4 isn’t about magic, it’s about harvest.” – Robyn Johnson

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • If you really want a great Q4 harvest season, you have to take the time to do the preparations.
  • Preparations we think you should consider to prepare for Q4
  • Ask yourself: “Am I making smart buying decisions and strategies?”
  • Making a plan of action
  • Watching your inventory control
  • Understanding supply and demand
  • Streamlining your business
  • Watching your margins

 

Our Recommendations for Q4:

  1. Avoid big name brands or diversify
  • If you are selling big name brands, focus on past year’s products and models
  1. Avoid liquidators and seconds
  • Big Lots, Ross, Burlington’s, etc.
  • Develop niche knowledge
  1. Only invest in what you can afford to lose in inventory

My guest on today’s episode is none other than partner of Buy Box Experts, James Thomas. James and his business partner are also the founders of the amazing yearly conference called Prosper Show that I have heard so much about lately. James worked at Amazon for almost 6 years, working and leading teams for much of that time. The last team he ran was the Amazon Services team, the team responsible for recruiting approximately 99% of all new sellers on Amazon.

During his time at Amazon, he frequently saw brand new sellers enter the platform, then, in large numbers, fail after their first four to six months – often because they either didn’t understand how Amazon worked or didn’t realize how competitive the platform was.

When he left Amazon, he and his business partner set on a journey to figure out where opportunities lied to educate people on a broad scale on ways to make the necessary investment of time and come out of the educational programs more equipped with a better understanding of what it takes to succeed as an Amazon Reseller. This is when the vision of the Prosper Show first began.

Today, on the show, James shares a lot of incredibly valuable information, tips, and strategies that Amazon resellers should consider and implement in order to stand out among the sea of competitors when talking with brand owners and executives.

“If you have the right resources, contacts, and software in place – you should be proactively asking brands about what you can do to help them in exchange for a better relationship.” – James Thomas

 

Today’s Topics Cover:

  • What does a reseller need to do to get a leg up on their competitors while developing a meaningful relationship with brands so they can gain access to the right kind of products, in the right quantities, with a good price?
  • What you can do to become a better brand vendor and Amazon ambassador.
  • The five major areas where brands struggle the most on Amazon
  • What a reseller can do to help brands on Amazon based on these key struggle areas.
  • Educate. Collaborate.
  • Why you should point out enough important, small details when talking with brands.
  • How educating and helping brands improve their Amazon strategy can actually help improve your business, placing you in an expert position, and allow you to partner with brands as a trusted advisor.
  • How to approach brands to get them to list all of their catalog content, and why they should.
  • Developing a rolodex of service providers that would be helpful and useful to brands and how it can impact your Amazon business.
  • Legitimate sourcing and designated brand registries.

 

“If you’re not thinking about how you can help the brand, chances are, your competitors are.” – James Thomas

 

The 5 Major Areas Where Brands Struggle on Amazon:

  1. Distribution Control
  2. Controlling Prices
  3. Brand Content
  4. Catalog Selection
  5. Catalog Inventory Levels

Welcome back to the Unstoppable Entrepreneur Show! I am super excited about today’s guest, Sally Marier. Sally started selling part-time on Amazon last year in the heart of the Q4 season. She has been one of our amazing Momentum students since June and since then, she has been able to achieve her sales goal of selling $10,000 in products and is now aiming even higher!

Today, I chat with Sally about how her first Q4 season went, what she has done to build the momentum she needed in order to achieve her sales goal, as well as what changes she’s planning to make in her Amazon business for this Q4. She shares valuable tips and strategies that she has learned since starting her business and talks about her experience with ungating.
