Dealing with inventory problems

The two biggest problems an Amazon seller fears are having a product that doesn’t sell and having a product that sells but running out of inventory. Have you thought through how to deal with these scenarios? Do you have a plan for liquidating your product if it doesn’t sell like you expect it to? What about a product that takes off and you run of out of inventory, what is your plan? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott talks with someone who has gone through one of these challenges. Jarret Colton has seen a good amount of success with his business over the last year but recently ran out of stock for some of his best selling products. Scott and Jarret discuss this issue and some steps you can take to prevent it.

Are you creating a product or building a brand?

It can be easy to get so caught up in finding a product that performs well on Amazon and then focusing on the next best seller that you lose sight of the big picture. Building a brand. The best way to create long lasting and sustainable success is to break into a niche market and start building a brand around those products. On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott talks to Jarret Colton. Jarret is following through with this methodology and is building a great brand around a very specific market. If you want to learn more about the success of focusing on brand building over chasing the next successful product, make sure to catch this episode!

Building an email list

One of the most important things you can do to start setting your business up for success and move away from just relying on Amazon sales is to build an email list. Jarret Colton learned this lesson after he attended a recent TAS event in Arizona. Jarret has a growing and successful private label business that he wants to take to the next level. He put all the pieces in place using the giveaway resource “King Sumo.” Before long he started to get people signing up for his giveaway - that soon translated to likes on the Facebook page he set up. Jarret was impressed with how great this strategy paid off. So what is holding you back? Are you ready to get started and take the steps necessary to build your email list? If you are, make sure to listen to this episode and also check out the email list building resource at the end of this post!
