Boost Christmas Sales with My 11 Tips

amazon seller tips christmas

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.

Hot Toy LIsts Christmas 2018

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.

Keep reading if you want their help.

The 3 Major Advantages to Sourcing Wholesale (Guest Post)

compare wholeasale to private label and retail arbitrage

Ed. note: Below is a 'plain english' overview of how sourcing wholesale is different than other sourcing methods, courtesy of Vendrive. Vendrive provides inexpensive CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software. That's a fancy name for software that helps wholesale-sourcing Amazon sellers stay organized and make the right product decisions. You probably don't need a CRM if you just dabble in wholesale. But if you are sourcing multiple SKUs from a few different manufacturers, a CRM Solution can help in spades. No Vendrive links in this article are affiliate links, and I am not compensated at all if you sign up for their service here. Vendrive did not pay a fee for posting the below article.

Selling on Amazon can mean so many different things, from writing books for Kindle Publishing to building massive brands using private label. It can seem a bit daunting when you're first introduced to selling on Amazon given all of these options but I’d like to help you make that decision much easier.

Most of us take a very similar path - we hear about selling on Amazon either online or on some podcast and quickly jump into a course to learn how to get started. The easiest path is the retail arbitrage or online arbitrage model, but after a grueling time trying to scale this model, we begin looking at either wholesale or private label.

Wholesale vs. Private Label vs. Retail Arbitrage

The above pic is Dan & Eric from The Wholesale Formula. They sell $11M+ annually on Amazon

Dan & Eric from The Wholesale Formula  sell $11,00,000M+ annually on Amazon. Those profit #'s (above) are just for ONE pallet for ONE month.

For my Amazon business, I source products 3 ways (well, more than 3, but the major methods are):

  • Retail/online arbitrage
  • Private Label
  • Wholesale
Can you guess which two have been the more problematic these days?

All the info you need about The Wholesale Formula

Best Wholesale course for Amazon sellers

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…]
