Even if you are not enrolled in one of my recommended Q4 product sourcing groups, I put together some tips to help you make maximum sales/profits with your Amazon business this Xmas:
1. If this is your first Q4 experience, you may have noticed that your sales haven't yet started to soar. That isn't unusual. While most of the corporate world divides the year into quarters starting in October, Amazon sellers consider Nov., Dec. and Jan. the "true" Q4. In other words, don't be alarmed if your sales figures are still modest because the real rush has not yet begun.
2. Finding yourself restricted from selling in various categories or brands? This is common among newer sellers but thankfully there are some free techniques from my trusted partner The Selling Family here and here. Follow these step by step here and here to see if you can get ungated in various categories/brands.

It is that time of year again ... the weather turns cooler, children go back to school and people begin to prepare for the holidays. It is also time for all you as an online seller to take a look at your inventory and get ready to capitalize on the annual shopping spree.
Just like any business, you have to not only have products that are demanded by consumers, but you have to be able to [click to continue…]
You know those 'Hot Lists' that the stores like Walmart and blog sites release every year? Those don't work. Many are made up by the stores themselves, hoping that enough hype generates sales of their hand-picked 'winners'.
Some background: Every year I see hundreds of buyers using those lists to source stuff they hope to resell for 3x more on Amazon or eBay. And (in most cases) those sellers lose a LOT of money.
Where does that leave you?
The 'trick' is to know what's trending from actual customer demand (=sales) in toys and other product categories like kitchen, tools, and more. Those store lists don't tell you that. See, the more demand a product has (or if demand is outstripping supply), the higher it can be sold on Amazon or eBay.
So I gathered some of my trusted partners who have all this figured out. They're ready to tell you exactly what to source in stores and online, and flip online. That way, you can ensure you're picking the most profitable products to sell. Remember, I only work with the bwho offest: experts er the best selling ideas, product and sourcing info, and support to help you, bar none.

The Wholesale Formula ("TWF") is a proven blueprint/system for sourcing and selling wholesale products profitably on Amazon. Its founders Dan Meadors and Eric Lambert have sold over $20M in wholesale products on Amazon. Enrollment is now closed. It is rumored to re-open in January 2019
You're probably here because you're asking "is The Wholesale Formula legitimate, and does it work?"
The short answer is "yes" and "yes". But perhaps you need more info. So I wrote this post for you. (Full disclosure: I'm an affiliate partner of TWF, so I may be compensated if you purchase it). [click to continue…]
There's a big problem for eBay and Amazon sellers who want to buy wholesale. Typically, they'll go to google.com and type in “buy wholesale”, and they'll end up buying from one of the dozens of companies they see in the results (an example follows)

(She waited till October to source products for Q4. Don't do the same!)
Right now (Summer '18) is the time for you to start sourcing for products to resell Christmas/Q4 shopping season. This is whether you sell on Amazon or eBay (or anywhere else).
See, I get an influx of emails in October from sellers panicking because they waited too long.
By then, it's too late for most sellers to source products for the Holiday. So I have some free help [click to continue…]
Over the years, I've heard a lot of funny things from online sellers just starting out.
"I can't find anything to sell."
"I don't have enough money to get started with selling online."
"Selling stuff takes too much time."
See, I don't 'have' to sell on eBay anymore. My income from everything else, [click to continue…]
