00:01:55 00:01:58 month in sales i want to tell you a
00:01:57 00:02:00 quick little story on
00:01:58 00:02:02 how everything got started so i mean
00:02:00 00:02:04 i've been in the reselling game for
00:02:02 00:02:06 years now and i was doing some product
00:02:04 00:02:09 research you know it was
00:02:06 00:02:11 right in early 2020 when kobit hit
00:02:09 00:02:13 i'm back at my place you know my amazon
00:02:11 00:02:15 sales are starting to go down a little
00:02:13 00:02:16 bit i was selling some more
00:02:15 00:02:19 high tiket products that i was
00:02:16 00:02:20 purchasing from ebay and reselling back
00:02:19 00:02:22 on amazon like
00:02:20 00:02:24 dvd players voice recorders you know
00:02:22 00:02:26 like vcrs
00:02:24 00:02:28 and you know the sales kind of started
00:02:26 00:02:29 to dwindle down because coveted hit
00:02:28 00:02:31 you know a lot of people didn't know
00:02:29 00:02:32 what was going on in the world a lot of
00:02:31 00:02:34 people were scared and a lot of people
00:02:32 00:02:34 were kind of holding back on making
00:02:34 00:02:37 those
00:02:34 00:02:39 uh you know larger investments uh you
00:02:37 00:02:41 know it comes to buying products so
00:02:39 00:02:44 here i am at my desk i'm like okay how
00:02:41 00:02:46 can i how can i change how can i adapt
00:02:44 00:02:48 in order to you know continue to
00:02:46 00:02:50 generate profit in my business and
00:02:48 00:02:51 continue to grow my numbers and so i
00:02:50 00:02:53 started doing some local research you
00:02:51 00:02:54 know i'm on offer up i'm on facebook
00:02:53 00:02:55 marketplace
00:02:54 00:02:57 you know what are other people having
00:02:55 00:03:00 success selling
00:02:57 00:03:01 and interesting enough i was on offer up
00:03:00 00:03:04 and i see this lady had
00:03:01 00:03:06 10 packets of emergency um this like
00:03:04 00:03:07 kind of vitamin substance that you put
00:03:06 00:03:09 in your water and you
00:03:07 00:03:11 drink it and apparently it defends cobit
00:03:09 00:03:13 or it you know kind of it just helps
00:03:11 00:03:14 keep you you know healthy
00:03:13 00:03:16 and it was really interesting to me
00:03:14 00:03:17 because she was selling him for like 25
00:03:16 00:03:19 bucks a box
00:03:17 00:03:20 and so i'll say okay that's a little bit
00:03:19 00:03:22 weird but i didn't think much of it
00:03:20 00:03:23 closed my computer was done
00:03:22 00:03:25 um you know kind of doing that research
00:03:23 00:03:26 and here i am at the grocery store i
00:03:25 00:03:27 swear literally
00:03:26 00:03:30 i think it was either one or two layers
00:03:27 00:03:33 i'm in the vitamin aisle i'm looking for
00:03:30 00:03:34 protein powder and on my left i see the
00:03:33 00:03:36 exact
00:03:34 00:03:39 vitamin c package that the lady had
00:03:36 00:03:42 listed on offer up for 25 dollars
00:03:39 00:03:44 it cost 9.99 at the store
00:03:42 00:03:45 so immediately i pick it up off the
00:03:44 00:03:48 shelf i grab my phone i
00:03:45 00:03:49 scan it and i see that it's selling for
00:03:48 00:03:52 27
00:03:49 00:03:54 28 on amazon so right away i'm like okay
00:03:52 00:03:56 you know i'm just gonna test it's ten
00:03:54 00:03:57 dollars so i buy a single unit as well
00:03:56 00:04:00 as my groceries i go home
00:03:57 00:04:01 i list it go on with my day check the
00:04:00 00:04:03 amazon seller up
00:04:01 00:04:04 15 minutes later i think maybe 10
00:04:03 00:04:06 minutes later it sold
00:04:04 00:04:08 i was like whoa okay i think i'm on to
00:04:06 00:04:10 something i ended up making like
00:04:08 00:04:12 seven dollars profit on that unit and so
00:04:10 00:04:14 what i ended up doing
00:04:12 00:04:16 is with my instincts i end up going back
00:04:14 00:04:18 to that same store they had a couple
00:04:16 00:04:19 more flavors i originally purchased a
00:04:18 00:04:20 super orange they had like a tropical
00:04:19 00:04:22 flavor
00:04:20 00:04:23 a raspberry flavor i think maybe like
00:04:22 00:04:24 one more
00:04:23 00:04:27 and i ended up purchasing all the
00:04:24 00:04:28 flavors it was like 25 units total from
00:04:27 00:04:30 that one single store
00:04:28 00:04:32 i went home i swear they sold all within
00:04:30 00:04:34 the single day for like
00:04:32 00:04:35 anywhere from a six to nine dollar
00:04:34 00:04:37 property because some people
00:04:35 00:04:38 were buying them in multiple quantities
00:04:37 00:04:40 so i was actually able to make a larger
00:04:38 00:04:42 profit per unit
00:04:40 00:04:43 because i was able to save money on
00:04:42 00:04:45 shipping so immediately once i sold
00:04:43 00:04:47 those 20 units
00:04:45 00:04:49 i realized i was onto something big and
00:04:47 00:04:52 long story short after i had
00:04:49 00:04:54 originally sold those 20 units i
00:04:52 00:04:56 realized i need to get into the biggest
00:04:54 00:04:57 city and i needed to hit every single
00:04:56 00:04:59 store buying
00:04:57 00:05:02 these emergencies and what ended up
00:04:59 00:05:04 happening is as i was doing my research
00:05:02 00:05:05 studying my competitors i was seeing
00:05:04 00:05:07 that there were other
00:05:05 00:05:09 kinds of vitamins different sizes
00:05:07 00:05:11 different quantities
00:05:09 00:05:12 that were also selling well on amazon
00:05:11 00:05:15 i'll throw a screenshot up there but i
00:05:12 00:05:17 ended up building out an entire list
00:05:15 00:05:18 of all the different vitamins that i was
00:05:17 00:05:19 looking for when i went to these stores
00:05:18 00:05:20 so
00:05:19 00:05:22 there were the emergencies then there
00:05:20 00:05:23 were the little critters vitamins and
00:05:22 00:05:26 they were just
00:05:23 00:05:27 anywhere from probably 10 to 15
00:05:26 00:05:29 different variations of vitamins that i
00:05:27 00:05:31 was able to get from these stores for
00:05:29 00:05:33 you know paying anywhere from probably
00:05:31 00:05:35 eight dollars to 15
00:05:33 00:05:36 per bottle and reselling them back on
00:05:35 00:05:39 amazon
00:05:36 00:05:40 in insane volumes and so essentially my
00:05:39 00:05:41 hustle
00:05:40 00:05:43 started to kick in and you know i was
00:05:41 00:05:45 renting out airbnb
00:05:43 00:05:47 sleeping at random people's houses in
00:05:45 00:05:49 different cities so that i could
00:05:47 00:05:51 wake up at the cragodon and you start
00:05:49 00:05:54 hitting these stores buying vitamins
00:05:51 00:05:55 filling up my toyota 4runner from the
00:05:54 00:05:57 bottom
00:05:55 00:05:59 to the top coming back home having a
00:05:57 00:06:00 friend help me unload them from the car
00:05:59 00:06:03 into my apartment
00:06:00 00:06:05 sorting them all out counting them and
00:06:03 00:06:07 then that same night i was listing them
00:06:05 00:06:08 and then the next morning i already woke
00:06:07 00:06:10 up to
00:06:08 00:06:12 hundreds to potentially thousands of
00:06:10 00:06:14 dollars worth of sales
00:06:12 00:06:15 i had my friend come back over we had to
00:06:14 00:06:18 package anywhere from you know
00:06:15 00:06:20 40 to 80 different orders a day and it
00:06:18 00:06:23 was just an amazing
00:06:20 00:06:26 amazing experience and i tell this story
00:06:23 00:06:27 because it goes to show that anything is
00:06:26 00:06:29 possible and i know a lot of people
00:06:27 00:06:31 i've i've posted on instagram about me
00:06:29 00:06:32 selling vitamins and i was interviewed
00:06:31 00:06:35 on another channel about
00:06:32 00:06:37 you know selling 43 000 in a month of
00:06:35 00:06:38 vitamins on amazon
00:06:37 00:06:40 and i did receive a lot of negative
00:06:38 00:06:41 backlash a lot of people were
00:06:40 00:06:43 considering me
00:06:41 00:06:45 a criminal that i was trying to you know
00:06:43 00:06:47 exploit my customers
00:06:45 00:06:49 and from my perspective i feel like i
00:06:47 00:06:50 was you know providing a service because
00:06:49 00:06:52 when covet hit
00:06:50 00:06:53 you know the elders or people that had
00:06:52 00:06:55 children you know maybe they
00:06:53 00:06:58 didn't want to go to the store and you
00:06:55 00:07:00 know risk getting coded so i personally
00:06:58 00:07:02 was taking the risk going to the stores
00:07:00 00:07:03 buying the vitamins so the store was
00:07:02 00:07:05 getting a w so they were they were
00:07:03 00:07:07 getting a win they were happy
00:07:05 00:07:08 and i was taking those vitamins and i
00:07:07 00:07:10 was listing them on amazon
00:07:08 00:07:12 um you know for a nice enough market
00:07:10 00:07:13 where i was able to make a profit in
00:07:12 00:07:14 between on the transaction so it was a
00:07:13 00:07:16 win for me
00:07:14 00:07:18 i was able to make a small profit and
00:07:16 00:07:19 then the buyer was also able to get a
00:07:18 00:07:21 bargain because they were able to pay
00:07:19 00:07:22 you know a little bit more of a premium
00:07:21 00:07:23 price and they would have paid at a
00:07:22 00:07:25 store
00:07:23 00:07:27 but also they didn't have to go to the
00:07:25 00:07:29 store or risk getting the disease it was
00:07:27 00:07:31 a lot more convenient for them so
00:07:29 00:07:33 all around you know from from the store
00:07:31 00:07:35 to me to the customer you know it was a
00:07:33 00:07:37 win for everyone so either way
00:07:35 00:07:39 it was it was just an amazing experience
00:07:37 00:07:41 for me you know it was right after kind
00:07:39 00:07:43 of a tough time in my personal life so
00:07:41 00:07:44 you know to kind of hop on a trend you
00:07:43 00:07:46 know where your income really kind of
00:07:44 00:07:46 skyrockets and
00:07:46 00:07:48 you know you're seeing all these
00:07:46 00:07:49 different opportunities and you know
00:07:48 00:07:51 you're helping people when you're
00:07:49 00:07:52 you're traveling and it was just
00:07:51 00:07:54 honestly a great experience it's a great
00:07:52 00:07:56 hustle i'm so thankful
00:07:54 00:07:59 for the opportunity and you know i hope
00:07:56 00:08:00 that i can that by creating this content
00:07:59 00:08:02 and you know sharing with you on how i
00:08:00 00:08:03 was able to do it kind of what i was
00:08:02 00:08:05 selling
00:08:03 00:08:07 you know hopefully it inspires you so
00:08:05 00:08:09 you know go out and start your own
00:08:07 00:08:10 reselling business so before we get any
00:08:09 00:08:12 further into the video i
00:08:10 00:08:13 i did say i did tell you guys i was
00:08:12 00:08:14 going to show you everything i bought so
00:08:13 00:08:16 i'm going to go ahead and throw a
00:08:14 00:08:18 screenshot up on the screen
00:08:16 00:08:19 this is what i considered my buy list so
00:08:18 00:08:20 i essentially put
00:08:19 00:08:23 a screenshot image of every single
00:08:20 00:08:25 vitamin that i was wanting to purchase
00:08:23 00:08:26 to then resell back on amazon so it made
00:08:25 00:08:27 it very very easy so i was going into
00:08:26 00:08:30 stores like
00:08:27 00:08:31 walmart's targets or just my local
00:08:30 00:08:34 grocery stores
00:08:31 00:08:35 in search of these exact vitamins now as
00:08:34 00:08:39 you can see
00:08:35 00:08:42 the emergency 1000 mg vitamin c packages
00:08:39 00:08:43 30 packs those were the best sellers by
00:08:42 00:08:45 far majority of my
00:08:43 00:08:48 income definitely came from the super
00:08:45 00:08:49 orange emergency vitamin pack that was
00:08:48 00:08:51 definitely the top seller
00:08:49 00:08:53 the highest in demand as you can see
00:08:51 00:08:55 there was a strawberry kiwi flavor
00:08:53 00:08:56 there was a raspberry flavor there was a
00:08:55 00:08:59 tangerine
00:08:56 00:09:00 and the 30 packs those also sold really
00:08:59 00:09:01 well so it was kind of like i was
00:09:00 00:09:02 selling you know four different
00:09:01 00:09:05 variations
00:09:02 00:09:06 then there was also a 60 pack um that
00:09:05 00:09:07 was selling for a premium price online
00:09:06 00:09:09 so it was you know
00:09:07 00:09:11 60 units and that one was selling really
00:09:09 00:09:14 well and then of course
00:09:11 00:09:14 as i was studying more of my competitors
00:09:14 00:09:17 and honestly just
00:09:14 00:09:18 going to the store and scanning i
00:09:17 00:09:21 scanned
00:09:18 00:09:23 every single vitamin to see if there was
00:09:21 00:09:25 any chance that i could profitably
00:09:23 00:09:27 purchase and then resell it back online
00:09:25 00:09:29 and i ended up finding all these other
00:09:27 00:09:30 different vitamins
00:09:29 00:09:32 you can see in the top left there's
00:09:30 00:09:33 something called vapo steam i was
00:09:32 00:09:36 getting those for around nine
00:09:33 00:09:37 dollars at walmart and i think maybe
00:09:36 00:09:39 target as well
00:09:37 00:09:40 but those were at one point selling for
00:09:39 00:09:43 like 25
00:09:40 00:09:45 on amazon and extremely high volumes a
00:09:43 00:09:47 bunch of other vitamins as well you know
00:09:45 00:09:49 the little critters
00:09:47 00:09:50 um and we also hopped on a shower clean
00:09:49 00:09:53 that's not really a vitamin but
00:09:50 00:09:54 yeah there were a lot of great items and
00:09:53 00:09:56 i wanted to show you this so i could you
00:09:54 00:09:57 know show you the proof
00:09:56 00:09:59 and kind of show you how my mind was
00:09:57 00:10:02 working you know how i found
00:09:59 00:10:02 one popular trendy product and because
00:10:02 00:10:05 of that
00:10:02 00:10:07 there were also other opportunities
00:10:05 00:10:09 other items that i was able to find
00:10:07 00:10:11 and you know add to my cart so instead
00:10:09 00:10:13 of going to walmart and only purchasing
00:10:11 00:10:15 you know the emergencies i had you know
00:10:13 00:10:16 four different variations of the
00:10:15 00:10:18 emergencies i could purchase you know i
00:10:16 00:10:20 had the vapo steam you know i had the
00:10:18 00:10:22 centrum vitamins so they were just all
00:10:20 00:10:24 these different vitamins i was
00:10:22 00:10:26 able to you know add to my cart to be as
00:10:24 00:10:27 efficient as possible
00:10:26 00:10:29 and obviously to give me the best
00:10:27 00:10:31 opportunity to you know make the most
00:10:29 00:10:33 money and then obviously serve
00:10:31 00:10:34 the most customers that i can so i know
00:10:33 00:10:35 a lot of you are probably watching this
00:10:34 00:10:38 video and you're like
00:10:35 00:10:40 carter what is the next trendy item what
00:10:38 00:10:40 is the next trendy product so that you
00:10:40 00:10:42 know
00:10:40 00:10:44 i can hop on it and i can sell it on
00:10:42 00:10:46 ebay or sell it on amazon and you know
00:10:44 00:10:47 make some really really good money but
00:10:46 00:10:49 you know i'm a complete beginner and i
00:10:47 00:10:51 get this question all the time because
00:10:49 00:10:52 you know people see my success and you
00:10:51 00:10:54 know they're curious and
00:10:52 00:10:56 they too you know want to be able to you
00:10:54 00:10:58 know do crazy amounts of income you know
00:10:56 00:11:00 reselling products online
00:10:58 00:11:02 and that's the exact reason behind me
00:11:00 00:11:04 creating the selling fastlane discord
00:11:02 00:11:07 community so essentially i've created an
00:11:04 00:11:08 online community where ebay and amazon
00:11:07 00:11:11 resellers can come together
00:11:08 00:11:12 and work together to make more money in
00:11:11 00:11:14 their reselling businesses
00:11:12 00:11:15 and of course one of the best services
00:11:14 00:11:17 that i provide
00:11:15 00:11:19 inside of my community is my lead
00:11:17 00:11:21 generation service so i'm consistently
00:11:19 00:11:23 doing product research with myself and
00:11:21 00:11:26 my team trying to find
00:11:23 00:11:28 out what the best items are right now to
00:11:26 00:11:29 purchase at our local retail stores like
00:11:28 00:11:31 walmart and target
00:11:29 00:11:32 or the items discounted can we get them
00:11:31 00:11:34 for retail price
00:11:32 00:11:36 what are they currently reselling for
00:11:34 00:11:38 back on ebay and amazon and i'm
00:11:36 00:11:40 updating i'm alerting all the members in
00:11:38 00:11:42 my community on what the exact items are
00:11:40 00:11:43 you know where you can purchase them
00:11:42 00:11:45 what they cost and what they're
00:11:43 00:11:47 currently reselling for
00:11:45 00:11:49 back on ebay and amazon so it really
00:11:47 00:11:51 just simplifies the process
00:11:49 00:11:53 for especially those newer resellers
00:11:51 00:11:53 that maybe aren't the best at product
00:11:53 00:11:55 research
00:11:53 00:11:57 and of course inside that channel we
00:11:55 00:11:57 have a bunch of different channels
00:11:57 00:11:59 dedicated
00:11:57 00:12:02 to different topics regarding reselling

00:12:04 00:12:08 taxes as a reseller

00:12:09 00:12:13 resellers communicating on how they can
