Focus on Sourcing
Getting a good deal and cultivating a good relationship with a supplier is extremely important. Dig deep! Don’t just rely on Alibaba or Aliexpress to find a great supplier to source your product. If you can connect and build a relationship with a supplier that you can trust - that is HUGE! So get out there and network, be a good customer for these suppliers and if you get to the point where they can’t help you with a particular product, see if they can connect you with someone who can. If you’ve built a mutual trust and great communication with said supplier you will go far. To hear Scott expand on this further, make sure to catch this episode of The Amazing Seller!
