00:00:04 00:00:08 there too many sellers is too
00:00:06 00:00:10 competitive can you still make money
00:00:08 00:00:12 selling on the merge by Amazon platform
00:00:10 00:00:13 these are probably some common questions
00:00:12 00:00:15 you have running through your head if
00:00:13 00:00:17 you're debating whether or not you
00:00:15 00:00:18 should start your own merge by Amazon
00:00:17 00:00:21 business now let me tell you before you
00:00:18 00:00:23 even get in the video i'm ecommerce
00:00:21 00:00:26 online selling it's always changing now
00:00:23 00:00:27 with change there comes two different
00:00:26 00:00:30 options you can select those the first
00:00:27 00:00:32 option which means you do not change you
00:00:30 00:00:34 stay with the same methods the same
00:00:32 00:00:36 strategies you know the same tools and
00:00:34 00:00:37 you don't you know invest in you so if
00:00:36 00:00:39 you don't invest in something that
00:00:37 00:00:40 everybody else is having success with
00:00:39 00:00:43 you know the market is moving towards
00:00:40 00:00:45 you know it's the future of whatever it
00:00:43 00:00:47 is you know if you just stay the same
00:00:45 00:00:49 you're gonna fall down the wrong path
00:00:47 00:00:51 you're not gonna be able to scale and
00:00:49 00:00:54 everybody else that has adapted is gonna
00:00:51 00:00:56 pass you now the second choice is just
00:00:54 00:00:58 adapt you know change to whatever the
00:00:56 00:01:00 market is you know do the different
00:00:58 00:01:02 strategies use the different tools and
00:01:00 00:01:04 do whatever you can to stay on top of
00:01:02 00:01:06 your competition so you boom you're
00:01:04 00:01:08 ready to go whatever time of the year so
00:01:06 00:01:10 you can outsell your competition now
00:01:08 00:01:13 back to merge by Amazon the actual
00:01:10 00:01:15 playing field for merged Amazon was so
00:01:13 00:01:18 much more different two years ago so um
00:01:15 00:01:20 just kind of recap where I was in my
00:01:18 00:01:23 career so I was selling on eBay and
00:01:20 00:01:24 Amazon at the time and I've been
00:01:23 00:01:26 watching a lot of YouTube videos and
00:01:24 00:01:28 someone mentioned this program called
00:01:26 00:01:29 merge of Amazon so I ended up doing a
00:01:28 00:01:31 little bit of research and it sounded
00:01:29 00:01:34 like a great opportunity for me so this
00:01:31 00:01:37 is about two years ago and you know it
00:01:34 00:01:39 was still a very very new platform I
00:01:37 00:01:41 think I was accepted within you know one
00:01:39 00:01:44 or two weeks which is fairly quickly
00:01:41 00:01:46 boom I had my storefront up I could list
00:01:44 00:01:48 25 t-shirts and I started outsourcing
00:01:46 00:01:51 t-shirts I started putting designs up
00:01:48 00:01:53 and what I saw is once you have a design
00:01:51 00:01:55 that was you know a hot seller was
00:01:53 00:01:57 selling you know multiple times
00:01:55 00:01:59 throughout the day people would find you
00:01:57 00:02:01 know the BSR of that item and they would
00:01:59 00:02:03 just copy your design so what would
00:02:01 00:02:04 happen is if there is one best-selling
00:02:03 00:02:06 design you know three or four other
00:02:04 00:02:08 sellers would come on and sell that
00:02:06 00:02:10 exact same design now this is still at
00:02:08 00:02:13 the beginning stages you know of march
00:02:10 00:02:14 miami sonya the
00:02:13 00:02:16 you know the restrictions you know
00:02:14 00:02:17 weren't too you know strict people
00:02:16 00:02:19 weren't really you know flagging yet and
00:02:17 00:02:21 Amazon didn't really know how to deal
00:02:19 00:02:23 with all these copyright issues and it
00:02:21 00:02:25 was just a huge mess whoever also at
00:02:23 00:02:27 that time any t-shirt you would put up
00:02:25 00:02:28 was most likely selling if your design
00:02:27 00:02:30 was really unique
00:02:28 00:02:32 it really just stood out because I mean
00:02:30 00:02:34 there weren't many sellers on there and
00:02:32 00:02:36 I remember I had 25 t-shirt designs up
00:02:34 00:02:38 you know I probably sold you know 9 or
00:02:36 00:02:40 10 of those designs probably within the
00:02:38 00:02:42 first week and then before you knew it
00:02:40 00:02:44 through the leaks later I was up to the
00:02:42 00:02:45 next year then I was close to the next
00:02:44 00:02:47 year and I just kept working my way up
00:02:45 00:02:49 you know playing with different price
00:02:47 00:02:51 points but it was just a total different
00:02:49 00:02:54 playing field two years ago than what it
00:02:51 00:02:56 is currently fast forward to today it's
00:02:54 00:02:59 a little bit harder to start getting
00:02:56 00:03:00 started for instance the waiting times
00:02:59 00:03:02 to get accepted into the program are
00:03:00 00:03:04 really everywhere I've heard some people
00:03:02 00:03:06 are getting in within a week or two and
00:03:04 00:03:08 some people is taking three or four
00:03:06 00:03:10 months to get accept and now they're
00:03:08 00:03:13 having so many applicants there being a
00:03:10 00:03:15 lot more selective when it comes to
00:03:13 00:03:16 actually selecting different people to
00:03:15 00:03:19 join they're looking for people to
00:03:16 00:03:21 either have me maybe past experience
00:03:19 00:03:23 selling t-shirts online people that
00:03:21 00:03:24 already have you know designs ready or
00:03:23 00:03:26 go to graphic design they're not looking
00:03:24 00:03:28 for just anybody and everybody they're
00:03:26 00:03:29 wanting people are gonna provide value
00:03:28 00:03:32 and ultimately make them more money
00:03:29 00:03:36 through their print on demand service
00:03:32 00:03:38 now is merch by Amazon hard now maybe
00:03:36 00:03:41 has the landscape changed on March by
00:03:38 00:03:42 Amazon yes so this shouldn't be anything
00:03:41 00:03:44 worrying to you I mean this is gonna
00:03:42 00:03:46 happen in any business model on any
00:03:44 00:03:48 platform that you ever do within your
00:03:46 00:03:50 lifetime things are always going to
00:03:48 00:03:52 change that's an opportunity for you to
00:03:50 00:03:54 take advantage of that change and to be
00:03:52 00:03:55 one of the first people on there one of
00:03:54 00:03:57 the people that are standing out one of
00:03:55 00:03:59 the people that providing more value and
00:03:57 00:04:01 in return and in the long term you're
00:03:59 00:04:02 gonna be the successful one why
00:04:01 00:04:04 everybody else is using the same
00:04:02 00:04:06 strategies that worked a year ago but
00:04:04 00:04:08 now to current day they don't work as
00:04:06 00:04:10 well and the new strategies that people
00:04:08 00:04:12 are implementing are now taking over the
00:04:10 00:04:14 marketplace making themselves a lot more
00:04:12 00:04:16 money now you're probably wondering you
00:04:14 00:04:19 know is merch by Amazon dead the answer
00:04:16 00:04:20 is you know no I mean it's a little bit
00:04:19 00:04:22 different you know things gonna be a
00:04:20 00:04:23 little bit harder it's gonna be a little
00:04:22 00:04:26 bit hard to get accepted there's going
00:04:23 00:04:27 to be more competition but you just have
00:04:26 00:04:28 to find different ways
00:04:27 00:04:30 standout with unique designs and
00:04:28 00:04:33 Amazonas on if you copy
00:04:30 00:04:36 anyone's design any bit close you know
00:04:33 00:04:37 same color you know same wording you're
00:04:36 00:04:41 gonna get flagged and if you get enough
00:04:37 00:04:42 flags on your you know account you're
00:04:41 00:04:43 gonna get their suspended or terminate
00:04:42 00:04:45 so that's something you don't want to do
00:04:43 00:04:47 you know I just looked up entrepreneur
00:04:45 00:04:49 t-shirt and I don't see one t-shirt that
00:04:47 00:04:51 has a similar thing other than maybe
00:04:49 00:04:53 this t-shirt right here but obviously
00:04:51 00:04:55 they can't copyright that phrase but
00:04:53 00:04:57 they change you know different color you
00:04:55 00:04:59 know different fonts so it's different
00:04:57 00:05:01 but you see there's no t-shirts on here
00:04:59 00:05:03 that are being copied you know there's
00:05:01 00:05:05 no two t-shirts that are the same and
00:05:03 00:05:06 there's a reason for that Amazon has
00:05:05 00:05:08 really come on to that so if you're
00:05:06 00:05:10 really worried about people copying your
00:05:08 00:05:12 artwork it should not be a problem and
00:05:10 00:05:14 that that leaves a big opportunity for
00:05:12 00:05:16 the people that actually take time in
00:05:14 00:05:17 making really quality you know really
00:05:16 00:05:19 unique designs because you're gonna
00:05:17 00:05:21 stand out if you take you know that CEO
00:05:19 00:05:23 design and you make something you know
00:05:21 00:05:25 super unique and maybe add another you
00:05:23 00:05:27 know money or something below it that's
00:05:25 00:05:28 an opportunity to be able to out sell
00:05:27 00:05:30 you know your competition maybe charge a
00:05:28 00:05:32 higher price point as you can see the
00:05:30 00:05:34 price points are kind of everywhere you
00:05:32 00:05:38 know there's some $19.99 16.99
00:05:34 00:05:41 I mean $21.99 just some basic designs
00:05:38 00:05:42 but that's just what I wanted to show
00:05:41 00:05:45 you real quick about how the playing
00:05:42 00:05:47 field is kind of changed since where it
00:05:45 00:05:50 was two years ago so when it comes down
00:05:47 00:05:53 to the question of the video is March by
00:05:50 00:05:55 Amazon Dead and my personal opinion it's
00:05:53 00:05:57 not sure maybe it's got a little bit
00:05:55 00:05:59 more competitive maybe there's just some
00:05:57 00:06:01 more sellers but that leaves you with
00:05:59 00:06:03 the mindset that you need to find a way
00:06:01 00:06:06 to stand out you need to think outside
00:06:03 00:06:09 the box when you know selecting you know
00:06:06 00:06:11 t-shirt colors you know with your price
00:06:09 00:06:15 points with your know a big thing is
00:06:11 00:06:17 your title I mean your title is is huge
00:06:15 00:06:18 if you have a really good title and you
00:06:17 00:06:20 know bullet points see they're not
00:06:18 00:06:22 they're barely using their bullet points
00:06:20 00:06:23 check out this awesome design if you can
00:06:22 00:06:26 find a way to know write a really
00:06:23 00:06:28 descriptive title a bullet points that
00:06:26 00:06:30 you know sells the design sells the
00:06:28 00:06:32 t-shirt to your customer as well as a
00:06:30 00:06:34 description of your item you're not
00:06:32 00:06:35 gonna have a problem competing with all
00:06:34 00:06:37 these other people because most people
00:06:35 00:06:39 just make a decent design they're
00:06:37 00:06:40 probably outsourcing it unless riding it
00:06:39 00:06:42 with my business whenever
00:06:40 00:06:44 you can do it yourself if you're a
00:06:42 00:06:45 graphic designer or you can outsource it
00:06:44 00:06:48 but I highly recommend you focus on
00:06:45 00:06:50 finding a way to be unique within your
00:06:48 00:06:52 market so if you're wanting to make an
00:06:50 00:06:54 entrepreneur t-shirt make sure it's
00:06:52 00:06:56 something unique make sure the text the
00:06:54 00:06:58 color the design is something that
00:06:56 00:07:00 people haven't seen before and something
00:06:58 00:07:01 that people might want to purchase so
00:07:00 00:07:03 you have an opportunity to go and
00:07:01 00:07:05 compete in that market even with a
00:07:03 00:07:07 higher price point that's it for this
00:07:05 00:07:10 video hopefully you guys like the little
00:07:07 00:07:12 bit of an explanation of you know kind
00:07:10 00:07:14 of the current merch by Amazon platform
00:07:12 00:07:17 where exactly it is you know competition
00:07:14 00:07:19 wise and if you can actually still make
00:07:17 00:07:20 money in the platform anyways that's it
00:07:19 00:07:22 for this video make sure you like and
