best sellers rank amazonMany new/intermediate Amazon sellers ask me “what is a good best sellers rank for an item to sell on Amazon?

The answer varies widely, but I’ve corralled some of the best ‘seller perspective’ help out there, below.

(Before you continue reading, you should read this post, where I debunk the myth that all high bestseller ranks are ‘bad’. (“Higher” = slower-selling). And Amazon mega-seller Stephen Smotherman concurs in his own post)

Then, take a look at the below three resources.

1.) My cheat sheet. This is what I tell starting sellers when they are out looking for used/new products to source for selling on Amazon. Sure, go ahead and print it out for your own use.

2.)  Amazon mega-seller Peter Valley lends some of histolerance’ criteria around sales rank here.

3.) The folks at Seller Engine (reliable company that also sells Profit Bandit) put this together to help with the confusion over sales rank.

Chris Green ArbitrageAbout 1 month ago, Chris Green published Online Arbitrage: Sourcing Secrets for Buying Products Online to Resell for BIG PROFITS in Paperback and Kindle for $200+. (you get the Kindle version free if you buy the paperback one).

Yes, I bought my copy. At first, I was very skeptical of its value. But I had to see.

I read it all. My verdict?

To my surprise, it’s actually worth it (and more).

See, if  you’re still looking for and buying items online (to flip on Amazon) using the same methods you were 1 year ago, well, the game has changed. You have to be a lot more savvy if you want to snap up the best deals at the maximum savings and get maximum profits when you resell. Online Arbitrage teaches you everything, concisely, so you can do just that.  It’s a safe bet that most of your competition (other sellers who conduct online arbitrage) don’t know or just don’t bother using those tactics. That leaves you with the greatest chance of earning maximum profits and minimizing your risk (investment) with what you’re buying online.

If you’re still undecided about whether or not you should get your copy of  Online Arbitrage, here are my suggestions:

1.) FREE: Download my executive summary of Chris Green’s Online Arbitrage (this won’t be free for long).

2.) Read the reviews on Amazon

3.) See page 35 of my free summary  to see how I will fully guarantee your purchase of Chris Green’s Online Arbitrage for 1 full year (out of my own pocket. Nobody else is doing this).online arbitrage

By the way, I’m not an affiliate of Chris Green, I’ve never met him, and he’s not compensating me in any way for this. It’s just another way of me helping you make an investment with more confidence.

Good luck, and keep me posted.

Amazon and eBay sellers:save money photo

If you purchase any inventory from online or brick-and-mortar stores, this post is for you.

See, with your competition increasing (Amazon and eBay sellers buying the exact same deals as you, online and in-stores), the ‘immediate reflex’ is for all those sellers (including you) to drop prices. Follow suit and you’ll cut into your profits. So IF you have to drop your prices, why not have an advantage that many of them don’t have?

By ‘advantage’, I mean make your inventory costs LOWER than theirs (this leaves you with a higher profit marsave money photogin, you dig?), so you can be more competitive if/when you lower your selling prices.

So this post shows you how I achieve just that [click to continue…]

I failed once. Hard. Here’s my story.

by Jordan Malik July 30, 2014

CNBC recently interviewed me for a story, ‘11 common reasons small businesses fail’.  My failure had nothing to do with my companies today — CNBC had me talking about my first ‘real’ company from 15 years ago. (The story doesn’t mention that my company’s cofounder was an idiot savant and primarily responsible for the downward spiral). Anyway. things […]
