The Difference Between Amazon FBA Vs Dropshipping and Which is Better For 2020?

hey it's your boy and gavin back with,another,video in this video we're gonna tok,about the difference between,amazon fba and drop shipping,okay because there's a lot of people,that,are interested in amazon fba but they're,not sure,you know what should i how much what,does it cost to get involved,um what does it take to have a,successful amazon fba,store and also with drop shipping,you know what are the steps where how do,i source,the products um you know how do i get,sales,so i'm going to basically compare them,side by side in this video to give you a,more accurate,assessment of both business models and,then you can decide,which is best for you so let's get into,it,right now,[Music],if you're new to the channel don't,forget to hit that subscribe button so,you get,all our latest uploads on this channel,we tok about,make money online leaving your day job,we tok about affiliate marketing amazon,fba and,pretty much everything related to,leaving,your boss so if that appeals to you hit,the subscribe button,the comparisons will be be based on,basically like a one,person show you with your laptop,and uh you're operating this business,anywhere in the world and,that's what draws a lot of people in,with both business models okay,so let's start with amazon fba first,all right with amazon fba you need,inventory all right so you have to get,the inventory from,wherever country you're sourcing from,and you need to send it into,amazon fba warehouses so you need,inventory so that's going to take,startup capital so that's my next point,it's going to take,like realistikally for amazon fba,australia,and this could be compared to usa as,well,but amazon australia you're looking at,comfortably,to set it up properly about ten thousand,dollars you can get away with about five,thousand dollars but you're going to run,into cash flow issues,later on down the track so you're,looking at about 10k that's what i,always tell people,10k is gonna set you up and running and,you're gonna be on the on the right,track okay so ten thousand dollars,now with the next point with amazon fba,uh there's no storage okay so you don't,need to store the goods,anywhere uh the the goods are actually,sent from,wherever you're sourcing them from,whatever country china,india vietnam wherever you're buying it,from,and you're sending it directly to,amazon's warehouses and they,they will store the goods for you so,there's no storage fees,okay the next one is there's no need to,find your own customers,with amazon fba because they're,that when you bring the goods into the,platform onto amazon,fba they're actually amazon's customers,and they're going to,promote your listing organically,if you do all the right keyword listing,and do the proper online,listing seo properly amazon will,actually push your listing,and it wants to convert,your product it wants to get sales,and it'll be amazon's customers that,will buy your product,all the customers are on amazon already,okay there's no need,to spend money on amazon,on ads with amazon okay even though,it's uh it's optional and you can,like uh use this strategy to,just to you know bump up your listing if,you've got a new product,the whole business model amazon fba it,doesn't require,advertising to to,sustain toward to be sustainable you can,basically get,the organic sales through the amazon,platform,without spending any money at all,amazon using advertising is optional,okay the next point is it says you can,brand your own products,and this is a really really important,point,because as you're building out your,brand,you get brand recognition and you,actually,build a value within that brand just,like i'm wearing this shirt,now right this is an under armour shirt,and,if this was your brand uh,you know you'd be have a multi-billion,dollar brand now because,the brand is uh what people pay for and,by building the,the brand equity the goods or your goods,can be sold for a lot more,i think branding is really really,important now,with if you ever want to exit your uh,amazon business and there's a lot of,amazon sellers that actually use this,strategy,they build their amazon business up to,uh 30 40 50 000 100 000 a month and then,they sell it,if you ever wanted to sell it this is,they're very very very valuable and you,can go on a site,called empireflippers.com and just,search their marketplace and you'll see,tons of amazon sites,stores that are selling and they roughly,sell it for about,30 x the profit,uh per month so if it's if it's,generating a hundred thousand per month,you can roughly get about thirty three,million dollars,if you sell that business so the next,point is there's no customer service,with my,amazon business there's no there's,literally no customer service i think,i've had like,three emails in the last 12 months from,customers and i just quickly answered,them,amazon handles the customer service for,you,they handle the all the inventory the,logistiks,uh if the customer's got questions with,you know where's my order blah blah blah,amazon will handle all that stuff for,you this is literally no cuts there's no,customer service,okay the next point is uh the customers,are they your customers,no they're not your customers they're,amazon's customers okay so,this is uh also important to note,that when you sell the product you're,selling to amazon's customers okay,okay so the learning curve i would say,the learning curve,is it's pretty intense but i would say,probably high,because you've got to learn how to,source the product you're going to learn,how the internals of amazon works,how to label it which products are,allowed,then how to send that inventory how to,pick,supplies and then logistiks and then how,to get that,product to amazon and then how to um,get it to start selling uh and you know,you've got all the basic principles of,basically business so i would say the,level is quite high all right for amazon,business it's not just,a get-rich-quick okay there's a lot of,steps involved,but also the rewards are very high and,uh lastly it's quite uh hands uh,hands off like there's literally,like from a passive point of view once,you get your products going and,um you know you're uh up and running,it's it's pretty passive because there's,not really much to do,um the only the the biggest part is,actually just getting the,new products in okay so that's probably,the hardest part but once it's selling,it's it's,it's pretty much passive okay so now,we're going to tok about,drop shipping with drop shipping there's,no inventory okay because the inventory,that's the part of drop shipping drop,shipping is basically you know when the,customer,places the order then you just go and,tell the supplier,and then the supplier will send it,directly to the customer,with your invoice or with no invoice and,that's one of the perks of drop shipping,another thing is it's very little start,up,compared to amazon traditional,businesses,literally just need the website you need,to send some,traffic to that website i mean obviously,if they're branded properly and,everything like that,but there's no inventory and,um because there's no inventory there's,very little capital so you could,probably start a drop shipping,website for 500 bucks,and be up and running,because the capital expansion is very,very low,and i think that's why it's very very,appealing drop shipping is very very,appealing,okay there's no storage requirement,because obviously,the goods are not you're not storing the,goods the goods are actually in the,suppliers warehouse,and all you're doing is when you get the,order you just tell the supplier hey,i've got an order,send to my customer and that's why,there's no storage,okay with drop shipping you have to find,your own customers,so this is one of the big things with,drop shipping to find those customers,there's a whole bunch of steps involved,so that's kind of one of the things with,drop shipping,you have to find your own customers but,this whole different strategies on how,to do that a lot

Best Amazon FBA Reddit Communities (Grow Your Business)

[Music],video about ready and why I think it's,such a useful tool if you're interested,in learning more about Amazon FBA so,whether you're a complete beginner or,you're an experienced Amazon seller I,think that reddit is a tool that you,should all be using so yeah in this,video I've just put together sort of a,small presentation we're going to go,through the best Amazon FBA reddit,communities so the ones I've been sort,of involved with and the ones that are,given me most value and then I'm going,to run you through really how I've used,read it to grow brands and how you can,use reddit to grow your business because,yeah it's a really really powerful tool,reddit is basically the modern-day,version of forums forums obviously can,continue to exist but that's what read,it is it's a collection of tiny forums,or communities reddit subreddits that,are just full of people that are,interested in a partikular topic yeah so,what I'll do I'll start with what I use,reddit for so I use it to learn and by,learning I mean look and listen to what,other Amazon sellers are doing the,problems that they're facing how they're,dealing with their problems,I use it to network so I've actually,created a couple of sort of decent,collaboration opportunities for us here,at a business boss so it's been really,useful for that and in other niches yeah,I've also spoken to people that have,gone on to really help help me with,things I've been struggling with so it's,a great place to network and yeah I use,reddit to help people out so that,probably sounds a bit strange but what I,mean by that is and I'll explain at the,end I use it to just help people out,across reddit with indonesia's I'm,involved with and yeah I won't be,expecting anything in return,that builds brand and it builds my,following which which is what we want so,my favorite reddit communities now these,are all Amazon FBA specific the one that,comes up at the top is is called,fulfillment by Amazon so remember with,subreddits it is case sensitive so you,can see on the screen that's exactly how,you need to put it into ready this is,the biggest Amazon specific reddit,community that I found anyway yeah it's,full of information so yeah and within,this subreddit I actually started a,thread and yeah it became pretty popular,and and like I said this is proof of,what I'm using reddit for so what I,decided to do was run a QA and I do,these quite often and yeah they're,basically an opportunity for me to ask,anyone in the in the subreddit if,they've got any questions that they'd,like me to help them with so in relation,to Amazon FBA and it's where a lot of,our YouTube followers our YouTube,subscribers our Instagram followers have,come from they've been people that I've,spoke to on reddit and maybe help them,out with something and yeah in return,they've thought yeah that informations,of value I'm gonna follow them and maybe,they've got more useful content for us,so yeah I put together this thread I was,very upfront I said I've set up a,YouTube channel I want to help people,learn about running an Amazon business,so if anyone wants you know if anyone,wants the link I ask them to send me a,message rather than putting the link to,my youtube channel on this thread well,that that's one way to just get me,banned from from this reddit community,which obviously I don't want so you can,see yeah there's a hundred eighty-two,comments and I spent a long time helping,people out with questions and yeah it,does take time but it really does help,you build your brand and build your,following so yeah obviously if you're a,complete beginner you can learn from,people like me and people that are far,more experienced than me I'm ready so,yeah that's a part of Reddit I really,like,another one of my favorite reddit,communities is yes called entrepreneur,and you can see in the screen there,there a bigger community but that's,because it isn't just a specific Amazon,FBA read it it's it's more of a general,entrepreneur sort of community so there,is still loads of useful hammers and,related information in there and yeah I,picked out my favorite thread from,within this community and yes this one,here by ya guy black mirror he posted it,and I I just thought this trip was cool,because it basically pulled apart a lot,of these people that are selling courses,no I think selling Amazon courses are a,bad thing I've invested in courses,myself yeah but this thread I mean you,can only see a snippet of it here is,actually incredibly useful in terms of,product selection and helping you find,niches that maybe don't have too much,competition so any sort of threads or,links that I've mentioned in here I'll,leave in the description below you can,check this partikular thread out as you,can see it had 106 up votes it was very,very popular yeah and some of his rules,for looking for a product is brilliant,he toks a lot about finding a product,that might fit into a brand and yeah,this is part two so yeah it's a really,really long thread but well worth well,worth checking out,yeah off the back of this obviously I've,been spending a lot of time helping,people out in different reddit,communities so I've decided to start,some my own one our own one here and it,really is just for anyone that wants,help with Amazon FBA so that's what the,community is called Amazon FBA help yeah,and basically if anyone's got any,questions or anything like that actually,know you can always leave a comment on,any of these videos but you can also get,involved in in this community ask,questions there because we just fill it,with content that's gonna help you guys,learn more about Amazon FBA yeah I,speaking to the other guys here a,business boss and just saying well I,think they said let you spend so much,time on reddit helping other people why,don't we start our own one,and yeah that's exactly what we've done,so yeah if you're interested in Amazon,FBA and you've got read it make sure you,subscribe to that community this is my,favorite reddit thread of all time and,mainly just because it's nice so yeah,this was posted in a group called,flipping by a guy called marshmallow,Matt and yeah really how it just says,it's a letter basically from yeah an,older person and yeah it said hi I found,many old VHS tapes recently and wanted,to see what was on them and I realized I,had no player so I went to ebay for the,first time and discovered your offer,I brought your VHS and you shipped it in,a few days,the VHS looks new and unused amazing I,had some issues getting it going which,were mine and not the player I'm 86 and,perhaps not up to my game but I do get,there eventually and I did and,discovered the VHS works perfectly thank,you so much for your caring efforts and,your promise I watch tapes of my,retirement party from 25 years ago and,which I've never seen before,geez we were young then a tape of my,wedding with all the family and friends,many of which are no longer around,then skiing trips kids growing up,travels and most importantly the,gentleman tearing of my family each one,more fun than last all thanks you're,generous and selling of the VHS player I,thought you'd appreciate how much,someone has enjoyed your offer best,regards that's just nice I didn't I,didn't cry when I first read that before,any of you think that I'll leave a link,to this definitely below and just check,out the comments as well it really is,yeah a lot of comments are just as,heartwarming as that but you know as a,someone that sells products online we've,never received a hand written or typed,out letter from someone so yeah that,sort of generation of customers really,won't last forever and I just thought,that was that was a really cool thing,probably one of my favorite other things,I've seen on reddit so yeah pretty cool,let's finish with how you can grow,whatever you're doing and it might be,Amazon FBA business you might be trying,to grow an audience teaching people,about Amazon like ass or whatever Nisha,is if you want to build your audience,you can

Create Amazon FBA Product Listing Copy Using Empathy Map Method, Facebook and Reddit

in this video we tok about amazon,product listings copy,and in partikular how to create copy,which,toks to a target customer my guest is,michael kealing and he will share some,tips and recommendations how you could,research and understand target audience,and,customer and to tok in their language,in your copy,of your listing and if you like,videos like this i hope you do like,click the notification,and i mean first subscribe button the,notification bell,and uh make sure that you get notified,when we upload different videos where we,tok with different amazon experts,software providers and event organizers,hello michael it's nice to have you here,could you please tell us,more about you and how do you help,amazon sellers hey i guess just thank,you for having me on your show,my name is michael keeling and i am a,couple of things i'm an amazon,fba instructor an amazon seller myself,and i'm also an e-commerce manager,for a brand architect company and i,oversee multi-million dollar brands like,kappa and art on amazon,it's interesting word you're using,instructor most,people say coach or well not even,trainer but,instructor it's interesting it's like,sports,yeah pretty much but yeah in a way it's,kind of sport and,in this conversation we'll tok about uh,listing copy and how to target,the whole listing towards the audience,of your product right so,um so basically you are,passionate about copywriting right why,do you think uh,listing copy is very important and,uh yeah what tips can you give us,for amazon sellers listing copy is very,important because you know,when you think about the amazon listing,as a whole um,copy isn't the the sexy part of the,listing people think of the videos the,images,um and obviously seo optimization but,before you even get to those especially,seo optimization you need to have you,know authentik copy,around those keywords that you find so,i tend to find that that's a big problem,for a lot of amazon sellers is you know,they find,the keywords that their competitors are,ranking for,and what worked best for them but they,are unable to really you know find that,target audience,um and speak to them directly and,incorporate,that verbiage into the listing that's,going to target that specific,audience so what would be your tip where,to start to understanding the audience,how to analyze it like where to start,yeah so where to start um,you know the one the first place you can,start is looking at your competitors,um directly on amazon you know someone,that has a similar product to yours,and going through the reviews right so,that's the first thing and probably the,easiest way to go about doing it but,you can go a little bit deeper than that,so you know you want to go to places,like,reddit you want to go to facebook,other social media platforms to see what,people are,saying how they're feeling and how,they're thinking,about um that partikular product that,you want to sell,you really want to find their pain point,and understand exactly what they are,saying,so that you can use those words within,your listing,um now one of the ways that i've gone,about doing that is creating something,something called an empathy map where i,break down,step by step what people are saying,within my target audience,find out how they are thinking and what,they are saying so that i can,effectively communicate with them,through my product listing actually it's,the first time i'm hearing,empathy map it sounds interesting so,can you share some example with us and,explain how amazon seller could use this,kind of,method and yeah to give us some basics,definitely let me go ahead and share my,screen,perfect so this is an empathy map and,there's a number of ways of doing it um,you can either create one like this,in canva um or you can just create one,in google doc for me i prefer to use,google docs because i can list,everything out so this is basically,breaking everything down,for you so it helps you sort out the,information that you find,upon doing your research about your,target about your target audience,so i'd like to start off here um you,know,who are they empathizing with you know,you want to find this information,out um what do they need to do what,they're thinking and feeling,what do they see say do,and hear now how do i get this,information again,uh amazon reviews from trier prior,or competitors right now or going to,reddit,searching in so let's say i'm looking,for or if i'm selling something like a,dog anxiety jacket or i want to find,how people solve for anxiety within,their dogs,i may go to reddit and type in dog,anxiety,jacket a product that i may be selling,and finding out what people are saying,about their dog's,anxiety and using those exact,and specific details and including this,within my empathy map,now it's easier to do this in google,docs i think especially when you're,working with,a lot of data like a lot of data that,you may find on reddit,so um i'll make a google doc and i'll,list,each one of these questions out and then,once i go and read it and i find all,this information,i'll put it under each category here all,right so,yeah we will collect a lot of,information and,so there are like seven or eight uh,things to ask about your target audience,so how many things should we collect as,many as possible or,five in each uh step or what is your,suggestion,that's a very good question um so i,don't really like to put an,i don't like to put a number on the,information that i should find,uh what i like to do is i like to keep,going until that information gets,repetitive,eventually going to hit a point where,you see the same exact thing over and,over again,and once you get there you know when to,stop and once i gather all of that data,then i need to think okay,i need to sort it and say okay how many,times,is this person saying this about the dog,anxiety jacket,how many times is this person saying,this you know maybe their dog doesn't,feel comfortable around other people how,many times do i see that coming up,and look for common trends i'll take,those common trends,and i'll make sure i use the um the ones,that show up the most within my amazon,listing,and you know you could do that by just,doing a quick control f or,command f uh search depending on what uh,laptop computer you're using and typing,in those trends and seeing what shows up,the most,in the results and a few times you,mentioned reddit as a source of,uh doing a research i personally never,used reddit but,a lot of people mention it do you think,it's suitable for any kind of,niches and products so it's like for,partikular i don't know,family products or can you give us an,overview of reddit,yeah so it's basically like just a a,very large,messaging or discussion forum,um you know it's really people still use,it a lot today i know like earlier in,the 2000s people use it a lot,uh but still it is still used a lot,today uh they tok about,all varieties of different subjects so,um i like to do a lot of my,research within there and then facebook,as well so you can find some good stuff,on facebook,uh but typically i go reddit facebook,and then amazon customer reviews because,with the amazon customer reviews people,really aren't saying too much about how,they think and feel,they're really just toking about the,product but on reddit you can really,dive deep,and find some really good insights into,what people are saying,so how long do you allocate for yourself,to,analyze one product obviously you have,clients who,ask for your help so how long do you,do you need to get the final kind of,preparation for the writing the listing,copy,so the process could take a little bit,longer than um,you know some amazon sellers are used to,you know it's like again you know copy,is something that a lot of amazon,sellers overlook they just,so excited to get their amazon listing,live and,get you know the features up in regards,to the product but,doing this is just a step further so i,mean i may spend about two hours,analyzing all of this and

Alibaba To Amazon FBA Explained! Product Shipping Tutorial

i'm gonna show you exactly how to buy,products on alibaba,and sell them on amazon we'll go over,the terms you need to know,what method of shipping you should pick,and then we'll get right into my,computer,and build out a real-life amazon,shipping plan shipping is really not,that hard it just seems complex so we're,going to simplify it you really only,have,one goal you need to get your product,from the supplier's warehouse,all the way to the amazon warehouse the,only problem,are all these tiny little bitty,annoyances that come in between,but when you understand how the four key,players work together,it's really not that hard player number,one is the,supplier this guy right over here the,one that is creating your product the,supplier may also be known as the,exporter,or the seller because they are exporting,the goods,from their warehouse to you right they,are selling the goods to you they may,also be known as the consignor plan,number two,is you you're the opposite of the,supplier so you may be known as the,buyer,or the importer or the consignee now,play number three the carrier this is,simple,the carrier is the person or company,that carries your goods,from point a to point b carries it it's,in the name whether it's truck,plane or boat if they're carrying it,they could be the carrier so that it,could be ups that is fedex they,could be both known as carriers now,where it gets confusing is between the,carrier,and the freight forwarder so what is,this elusive freight forwarder the,freight forwarder is going to be,your best friend they do everything that,a carrier does they may even call,themselves a carrier,but they also do a whole lot more for,you so when you send your product over,from china to amazon it's not as easy,unfortunately as sending an email your,product is made and now it's sitting at,the supplier's warehouse you're going to,get it from there onto a truck,that truck then takes it to a port from,that port you've got to get it onto a,boat you're going to cross,international waters so you're going,from one country to another,that means customs fees paperwork,documents,then it goes lands at the port in,america has to get picked up again by,another truck,and then finally to an amazon warehouse,and what your freight forwarder can do,is all of that,and your freight forwarder will also,include the fifth player your customs,broker now what is that like i said,you're going from country to country so,there's a lot of paperwork involved and,your customs broker will handle that for,you,now if you were to just get a carrier,and a customs broker,individually to handle this process it's,probably going to be more expensive,than if you got a freight forwarder who,would do it all for you now we're going,to ask the question,do you ship by air or by sea well how,fast do you want to go,and how much do you want to spend air,it's going to be a lot faster,but it's also going to be a lot more,expensive whereas c,it's cheaper it's slower if you're,placing your first order,and you've got a lower quantity i always,suggest go by air,it's going to get you into amazon faster,it's going to let you test your product,out faster and assuming that your first,order is a lower quantity,less than a thousand units the price,savings probably won't be that much,sea shipping you start saving a lot when,you're ordering in the thousands of,units so if you're not there yet,don't wait 40 days for sea shipping get,it by air in 7 to 14 days,and get testing right away then if your,product proves to be great,then order your bigger shipment from c,time is money,exw this is a shipping term you're going,to see thrown around when you're toking,to suppliers the shipping method,determines how much responsibility,you're going to take on with exw,the supplier finishes the product and,leaves it at their warehouse so from,there,you got to get your freight forwarder to,pick it up at the warehouse get it to,the port,get into the sea get to the other port,do the customs do everything,and then get it here get it to the,warehouse if anything happens in between,that process,that's on you so you're relying on your,freight forwarder to pick up the entire,process,fob that stands for free onboard now,this is a much better option with free,onboard the supplier finishes the,product,gets it onto the truck gets it to the,port gets it on the boat,across the ocean and lands it in the,port in america,passing customs doing all of that so the,supplier is then,responsible for the first half of the,journey so now you just need to get your,freight forwarder,to pick it up from the port already in,the states pick it up with a truck,take it to the amazon warehouse a lot,less pressure off you a lot less,pressure off,the freight forwarder because the,supplier is doing the first half of that,work now this applies only when you're,shipping by c,so what happens when you take the plane,if you're going by air you're going to,hear,ddp delivered duties paid now this is,going to be the most,easy most hands-off way to ship your,product your supplier will do,everything make your product get it onto,a truck get it onto a plane,get it to the amazon warehouse period,hands off you're done it's the most,expensive,but least mentally taxing now this is,what you're gonna be doing if it's your,first order you want that speed you're,going ddp you'll also hear it,called door-to-door so meaning literally,from the supplier's door,to amazon's door you now understand all,the theory that goes behind the shipping,process so let's jump into the computer,and create a shipping plan in real life,so now i'm on my computer and now the,first thing you need to click,is that like button tap that right now,for me and then we can get going,so now we're in manage inventory right,so we logged into amazon seller central,you go to inventory manage inventory so,at this point,you already have a product listing,created right you need to have your,product listing created,to then create a shipping plan for that,product if you don't have a product,listing created then that's beyond the,scope of this video,but keep on watching so that when you're,ready you know exactly how this is done,so what you're going to do you're going,to click on your product i can't show,you this product right now but i will,one day on this channel,it's a case study that i'm going to show,okay so now what we're going to do we're,going to click,send replenish inventory on this drop,down so now they're asking,individual or case pack products but,before we get to that we need to cover,the ship,from address now i'm gonna assume we're,doing ddp,delivering from air directly from the,chinese manufacturer,to amazon so in here you can see i have,a beijing address that is my supplier,okay,then we're gonna click case pack,products individual pack products,means you're putting a bunch of,different items in this box hammer,scissors glasses all in a box and

The TRUTH about reselling from Marshalls for Amazon FBA in 2022

guys welcome back to the channel before,we get into the video i just want to let,you guys know that about 10 minutes into,shooting this i realized that the sd,card,wasn't in my mic so i had to improvise,edit a little bit but the basic premise,of this video is me going into marshalls,and scanning basically every single,product to show you guys what the truth,of retail arbitrage,actually is because a lot of people on,tiktok have been posting these very,inflated numbers oh we made 500 in 15,minutes at marshalls,we make 300 000 a month profit going to,marshalls and tj maxx,and it's just simply not true so i,decided to show you guys what the,reality of going to these stores,trying to resell is if you could hit,that subscribe button and like the video,real quick that would mean the world to,me,and i hope you guys enjoy the video i,just went through like most of the shoes,they have how many pairs of these cleats,they got so many,of these they have like 15 different,pairs but they're they're trash,no sold listings this is i mean since,i'm here i might as well pop up,uh 13 for these track spikes now see i,got to see if they even,come with the little spikes because,these don't have them so these are,60 on ebay though so potentially a good,footballer,nothing else is good you see a lot of,them people on,tiktok be scanning all this stuff,i'll tell you guys,this right now is actually pretty decent,but a lot of the other stuff is going to,be,restricted we're going to go through,this little section and i'll show you,guys what we found,so far i'm going through these i've,actually sold these before so i know,those what this,sent is not on amazon uh neither was,this one so we still have these to go,through and we'll see if we can find any,more there's a couple of these,i'm able to sell like this one this one,is they're asking,nine bucks for it it's going for 24 on,amazon personally that's not enough,margin for me,15.82 after fees after shipping and,everything 10 bucks to make,live i'm not really into that this brand,over here ended up being restricted for,me but a lot of these products weren't,worth anything anyways marshalls is,charging like five to seven dollars for,them,and they're like 10 to 13 on amazon so,after fees you can't make,anything went through all the hair,dryers and irons didn't find anything,worthwhile,we ended up with uh minus this is for me,and they also have one of these this is,also for me i'm not gonna make money on,those,but everything else here we should in,theory be able to make money on,of course there's gonna be returns and,whatnot but just,conservatively speaking like ten dollars,per each one so,30 40 50 60 70 80 90. like about 100,bucks here 120,conservatively after shipping and,everything and then we're going to go,through this stuff,they do have oh i didn't even see this,brand this is a really good brand that i,could sell that,um new people for sure can't sell,and then i mean i'll just tell you right,now as seen on tv,is a sketchy brand to sell in general,even if i was ungated for it i probably,wouldn't buy it,okay so this is actually kind of lit but,tiknically i think this is flammable so,i'm not sure if you could ship this,nothing in this entire section is really,even worth looking up,this little jeep puzzle thing looks kind,of cool i really had high hopes for it,but nope they had a bunch of these,little games and cards that i was,scanning,this one was 15 after fees but they were,asking like 14 for it,plus amazon is on the listing so this,one for sure is probably gonna tank,well the toys though right they make a,killing off the toys oh look it's a cute,little llama,this harry potter lego thing surely got,to be worth money right,760 ftps they're asking six bucks i'ma,just fast forward through a lot of this, because,it's gonna get very boring to watch,there was not a single,toy in marshalls that i could make money,on,i scanned every single,toy every single one of them,scanned not one of them i could make a,profit on,[Music],nike waist pack thing was actually,pretty decent asking 14.99,for it 22 after fees you can make a,little bit of money,new sellers you can't sell it i could,sell it on my account and a bunch of,random socks and stuff,absolutely nothing they wanted ten,dollars for these pack of socks at,marshalls,pretty good rank solid reviews 12,after fees would you spend ten dollars,to make two,i wouldn't just more me aimlessly,scanning all these,beard trimmers hair clippers basketballs,nothing profitable here so yeah i went,through the entire store of marshalls,basically i went through a little bit of,the clothing at the end but honestly i,got a little bit sick of it and i just,wanted to call it quits but that's how,it actually works right nobody's making,300 000 a month from marshalls think,about it like this if somebody's really,making,300 000 a month,from marshalls do you think they would,let you know what they're doing,there's five or six marshals in the city,of las vegas,there's no way in hell if i was making,50k a month,profit from just marshalls no way in,hell i would be telling people that,here's the takeaway marshalls can be a,great side hustle,you want to make a couple hundred bucks,here and there it's great to get your,feet wet in,it is not a long term play in my opinion,at least,but the numbers on tiktok,are insanely exaggerated like,naughty it's it's not even it's just oh,my god it is just so,blatantly obvious that it's just trying,to sell you you know a little group,private group get rich quick course,whatever right that's what it is,there's much better ways to start if you,really want to go resell,learn how to resell you go garage,selling nobody wants to do that though,right it doesn't sound very,appealing i should make some,videos about like i made five hundred,thousand dollars a month,going garage sale just so that people,actually go garage saleing right like,that is the way to learn everybody gets,caught up you trying to make a hundred,thousand dollars a month before you even,know how to make ten,bro get real with your life you gotta,really,you gotta reframe your thinking son but,i hope you guys enjoy the video if you,guys wanna see me go through another,store i know this video,i filmed on a gopro i hate gopros,honestly but,if you want to see me make another video,of a different store another thing that,you've seen on social media that,maybe you just don't know is a real side,hustle or not,drop it in the comments down below and i,will try to fit that into my video,schedule

Is Amazon FBA Still Worth Starting In 2022? TRUTH Revealed

it's too late to start selling on amazon,fba if you're going to try to use the,old school private label methods or,wholesale tiknique and that's because,amazon is oversaturated china all the,amazon fba fees and two other reasons,i'll tok about in just a minute and,right now amazon has over 9.5 million,sellers and over 2 000 new sellers are,joining every single day which means,selling on amazon is starting to get,really saturated but keep in mind amazon,is a 1.7 trillion dollar company last,year they did over 400 billion dollars,in e-commerce sales and the crazy thing,about that is two-thirds of all sales,that happen on amazon are from,third-party sellers that's people like,you and me selling on amazon's platform,but what's most exciting to me about,selling on amazon is this one graph this,is the total amount of sales that amazon,has done for the last 10 years and you,can see it's growing like crazy and,remember two-thirds of all these sales,are from third-party sellers so not only,is there a lot of opportunity with,amazon fba the opportunity is actually,growing the problem is most people are,actually doing it wrong and i'll tok,about that later in this video now still,people will say that it's oversaturated,that there's too much competition and i,do think that's true if you're trying to,do boring private label or wholesale and,yes there are 9.5,million sellers on amazon but only 2.3,million of those sellers are actually,active sellers and of those 2.3 million,active sellers only 1.1 million are,actually selling in the united states on,amazon and the crazy thing about this is,that 43,of all active amazon sellers in the,united states have made over a hundred,thousand dollars by selling on amazon,that means there's over 400 000 people,that are selling on amazon that have,made over a hundred thousand dollars and,i'm one of those sellers my name is,travis if you're new to the channel and,i have one product that i've been,selling on amazon that's done over a,million dollars in sales and i'm making,this video to show you the truth about,amazon fba so hit the like button and,i've personally tried a lot of different,ways to make money online and amazon fba,is by far the easiest way i've found to,create a legitimate passive income,business and that's because amazon fba,stands for fulfilled by amazon and it's,a way for you to sell products on,amazon's website where you basically,send in the inventory that you want to,sell on amazon's website to their,warehouse and whenever a customer on,amazon's website goes to the search bar,they search for your product your,product will come up at the top of the,search results they'll click on it,they'll buy it and you'll make money off,that sale now it's called fulfilled by,amazon because amazon actually picks,packs and ships your products out for,you which means you can live wherever,you want you can spend your time,traveling or doing whatever you love to,do because amazon is handling all the,shipping and fulfillment of your,products and this is a great business,model but the problem is most people are,doing it wrong this is a chart of,e-commerce growth in the united states,and you can see people are buying things,online more and more every year and,since people are buying things more and,more online it should become even easier,to sell things online but the problem is,most people are using tikniques that,used to work three four five years ago,and there's four main ways that you can,make money selling products with amazon,fba but some of these are better than,others and the first one is retail,arbitrage this is where you go out and,you find products that are deeply,discounted you buy those products and,then you flip them on amazon where,they're selling at a higher price and if,you're tight on cash this is a good way,to make some side income but the problem,with this business model and why i don't,recommend it is you're not really,building a business and you're not ever,going to be able to have passive income,because every time you want to make some,money you have to go out and hunt for,some deals and then you got to do the,work of putting those items on amazon to,sell it so you're constantly having to,do more and more work to make money the,second model that some people do but i,personally think is dying is wholesale,this is where you buy products in bulk,at a discount let's say a hundred pairs,of nike shoes that are normally a,hundred dollars you buy them for fifty,dollars you then take those shoes and,flip them on amazon for their full,retail price of a hundred dollars and,you get to keep all the profit after all,the amazon fba fees and everything else,now the problem with this is usually,you're not the only one that's,wholesaling that product which means,someone else is going to come along and,they're going to lower their price by a,little bit which means you need to lower,your price by a little bit and it ends,up being a race to the bottom where no,one ends up being profitable the same,thing is true about private label and,this is where you buy a product from a,website like alibaba.com you slap your,brand your private label on the product,and you sell it on amazon now this can,work if you can create a really cool,really strong brand around your private,label product or maybe you find a,product that nobody else knows about but,the problem is as soon as everybody else,starts finding out about this private,label product opportunity they're going,to come in and again they're going to,lower their price you're going to have,to lower your price and it's going to,end up being a race to the bottom what i,recommend doing instead is creating a,passion product this is where you create,a unique product that's better than the,competition and you create a really cool,really strong brand around it and,ideally you try to create a product that,does not yet exist that you wish existed,that if it existed you would actually,purchase and this is what i did with my,product and this is what i teach other,people to do and i'll share some real,examples of this including how much,people actually make doing this later in,this video but the second reason why,many people think it's too late to start,selling on amazon fba is because of,china and it's true there are a lot of,chinese manufacturers that are selling,their products directly on amazon for,way cheaper than you or i could ever,sell those same products for and that's,because they can cut out the middleman,and this is one of the big reasons why i,do not recommend trying to do wholesale,or private label because if you're,trying to do private label and you're,trying to compete against your own,manufacturer they're always going to be,able to sell their products lower than,you can sell your products for and it's,true that these chinese sellers will,sometimes use dirty tricks to try to get,american sellers blacklisted or banned,from amazon again this is why i,recommend staying away from private,label because if you're going to a,manufacturer just taking their product,putting your label on it and trying to,sell it on amazon that manufacturer or,another manufacturer is going to see,what you're doing and they're going to,just sell that same product on amazon,directly but if you create a product,that's better than the competition and,you create an amazing brand around that,product your product is going to be on a,completely different level than the,competitors which means that you're,going to get more sales which ultimately,means more profit for you but still a,lot of people don't want to sell on,amazon because of all the amazon fba,fees and this is reason number three why,it might be too late to start selling on,amazon and it's true amazon charges a 15,fee just to sell on their platform,meaning if you're selling a product that,costs a hundred dollars they're gonna,charge you 15,when you get a sale of your product on,top of that if you choose to be part of,the amazon fba program you're going to,have
