Start Your Amazon FBA Business with Amazon Boot Camp Version 3.0!

Amazon closed their doors to New Amazon FBA sellers earlier in the Q4 selling season. However, there is GOOD NEWS!! On December 19, 2016, Amazon is reopening their doors again, and you will be in the prime position to capitalize on this great news. Not only will you be able to start your own Amazon FBA Business, but Amazon Boot Camp Version 3.0 is Now Available to help you get started the smart way!

I have been using the Amazon FBA program to sell on Amazon for 3 years now and I love the ease of shipping my items right into the Amazon warehouse. I just pack up the items I find doing "retail arbitrage", and send them in. Once an items sells, Amazon ships it directly to the buyer and sends me my profits. Everyone loves the holiday season and any holiday, in general, because you can capitalize on sales without having to hold inventory in your home. 

One of the training programs that I have used and enjoy referring others to is the Amazon Boot Camp because you learn how to begin your Amazon FBA Business, doing retail arbitrage, which is the simplest way to start. Jessica from The Selling Family has taken some time, during the Amazon FBA closure, to totally revamp the training, to bring you Amazon Boot Camp Version 3.0.

This is the perfect time to purchase the newest version, dig into the training, and start getting your first shipment together, in time for the Amazon FBA reopening on December 19, 2016!

Get Started with Amazon Boot Camp Version 3.0, for a new beginning in 2017

The Amazon Boot Camp is Closing for 2016 to New Members! #AmazonSeller #EcommerceTraining

As you probably already know, I highly recommend The Amazon Boot Camp, created by The Selling Family. I have purchased this course and have used it to assist me with my own Amazon FBA Business.

Today, I was informed that The AmazonBoot Camp is CLOSING its door to New Members on October 20, 2016, and will not reopen until 2017. The Selling Family is working on an entirely new face-lift and content for the boot camp that will make it even more comprehensible for their current members. Also, if you are not already selling on Amazon using the FBA program, it was reported that Amazon will not be accepting any new Amazon FBA sellers, until after December 19, 2016.

With all of that being said, you are able to still Merchant Fulfill items, for selling on Amazon, which is covered in The Amazon Boot Camp. However, Amazon does have some restrictions on what items you can merchant fulfill during the holiday season as well. (For example, toys cannot be merchant fulfilled if you haven't met Amazon's selling requirements and must ONLY be sent through their FBA program.)

However, you may be wondering, “Should I still get the Amazon Boot Camp right now before the closing date of October 20, 2016?

The answer is “Yes”!

Here's why:
-->All New Amazon Boot Camp Members who join the newly-upgraded program in 2017 will have to purchase the Facebook Group separately from the Amazon Boot Camp. Right now, you get access to the Facebook Support Group of over 3,000 members for FREE. In the Facebook Support Group, you have access to paid moderators who are willing to walk you through anything you need. There are also thousands of members who have been beginners just like you and are willing to help you get through any initial nervous jitters and roadblocks. 

-->The Amazon Boot Camp is packed with information and will be broken down to the nuts and bolts, without all of the extra tools and resources provided. 

-->You will have time to study the course and learn the Amazon FBA process before Amazon reopens their platform to NEW Amazon FBA sellers on December 19, 2016. Remember, you can still merchant fulfill products in certain categories on Amazon while you wait to start FBA and that is covered in the Amazon Boot Camp.

I'm already an Amazon FBA seller, “Should I get the Amazon Boot Camp?”

The answer is “Yes!”

In Amazon Boot Camp V2.0, there are bonuses that cover:
  • Private Label Basics
  • Merchant Fulfilling
  • Buying Tax Free
  • Accounting Tips

Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can do today! Get The Amazon Boot Camp Now

Or you will have to wait until January 2017 and lose the extra perks, available now with the course.

The Amazon Boot Camp will Officially CLOSE on October 20, 2016. Enroll Now!

During the Fourth Quarter of the year, many Amazon Sellers make the chunk of their income. The mad dash to find the perfect gift is in high gear. Not only that but the prices of toys and everything else goes up too, making it possible for Amazon Sellers to get amazing returns on the items they sell too! 

I have been selling on Amazon for the last two Fourth Quarters and have seen my sales/profits increase tremendously during this time. I like to use the bundling approach to selling on Amazon and that has worked great for me. There are many ways to approach selling on Amazon and that's why it's nice to work with others during this time to find your own unique, comfortable way, to grow your own Amazon business.

If you have been selling on Amazon and would like personal coaching in a group setting, with an experienced Amazon Seller, or a newbie, wanting to finally get started selling on Amazon this year. I highly recommend The Selling Family's Amazon FBA Sellers 4th Quarter Training.

There are two ways to get your 4th Quarter Training:

Q4 Coaching and Training Package
If you would like the personal touch of the Group Coaching + Training Guide and Videos, that will begin October 15, 2016 (every year thereafter around this time of year, so you can re-join again and again)

FYI: What Is Included In Group Coaching?
Group Coaching is done in a manner where all members benefit from the interactions.  This is done in a closed Facebook Group for members only.  You are able to ask questions in the group and Cliff & Jessica (as well as other veteran sellers) will walk you through what you need help with.  We check in the group at least once per day, Monday - Friday (usually more often).  We do not offer one on one private message support or calls with this coaching group.

Q4 Profits Training Guide + Videos
If you would like to just do the Training Guide and Videos, then this is the best option for you. It will not include: 
  • Private 10 Week Group Coaching
  • 8 Facebook Live Q&A Sessions
  • Trends Of 2016 Cheat Sheet

There's BONUS Training! Both options above include additional bonuses for you. 

BONUS: Merchant Fulfill Course
BONUS: Bundle Training With Jessica & Debra

Everything You Need to Know to Start Selling on Amazon Successfully

It's a fact. Knowledge is king and having the right knowledge at the right time positions you in the right place to see results. We are now in Q4 (holiday season - Oct., Nov., Dec.) and it's a great time to learn how to start selling on Amazon. 

Thousands and thousands of buyers will swarm to Amazon, in search of holiday gifts for their friends and family. Black Friday by itself is HUGE!! Q4 is when most of us as sellers see a HUGE bump in sales volume and profits, which sets us up for the New Year! Some people actually ONLY sell items on Amazon during Q4 because of the great return. So, why not you! 

With the knowledge that you will receive in this Free 7 Day Email Course, you will have a better understanding of what you need to know to start selling on Amazon.

Back To School Selling Season on Amazon

I know that we're just getting started with Summer fun in 2016! However, it will be soon, time again, for Back To School supplies, lunch boxes, field trips, and extra-curricular activities. 

And, you have guessed it! It's the perfect time to prepare yourself for the short-lived, but lucrative, Back To School selling season on Amazon.

According to sources, the Back to School season is the second most spending season in the U.S., even more than Christmas. People spend lots of money for their children to be well-prepared.

The Selling Family has been successfully selling school supplies during the Back to School season, while everyone else is complaining about the slow-moving summer-selling season. It is important to be prepared, which is the true secret to being successful during Back to School.

Right now is when you should be preparing, researching, buying (sourcing) and sending to Amazon. It will put you in perfect position for selling products for this coming Back to School season.

That's why I would have to recommend the Back To School Profits Guide

With this guide, you will be ready to help parents complete their school supplies list and find the hottest items before they are all sold out! Make sure you are on the receiving end of successful Back to School shopping season.

[Interview] Success Story of Amazon BootCamp Student with Millions of Dollars in Sales

More and more people are learning how to successfully make a living using Amazon FBA. The good news is that you can learn the skills too just like myself and former Amazon Boot Camp student Dan Meadors.

In the Interview below, read how this Multi-Million Dollar Amazon Seller, went from working a full-time job to committing to selling on Amazon FBA.

Thanks for your time, guys. Could you please tell us a bit about you and how you got started selling on Amazon?
Absolutely! In late 2011 we were both working full-time jobs for an online retail company that specialized in selling collectible card games. One day, the CFO of the company quit. It surprised us because he was making a 6 figure salary at the time, so we asked him why he was leaving. He told us that he was making more money selling stuff on Amazon and he was just going to focus all his time on that.

We were shocked that this was even possible and to be honest, rather skeptical. We probed him about it further and he decided to take us on a trip to a local Wal-Mart to prove it to us. That was the day we learned about Retail Arbitrage and before that day could turn into night, Eric and I had decided to give this a try ourselves. We signed up for a seller account on Amazon and spent our nights and weekends either in stores scanning or at home packing and prepping. If we weren’t doing one of those things we were scouring the web to learn as much about arbitrage and FBA as possible.

So you guys started with Retail Arbitrage. How long were you doing that before you decided to leave your full-time jobs and pursue selling on Amazon full-time?
It was about four months in…and it was a crazy feeling! Up to that point we had reinvested every dollar we made back into the business and that really helped us grow our capital. We didn’t want to stop that growth either, so Eric and I calculated what the absolute minimum amount of money we could both support our families with, and that is how we came up with our initial salaries. Everything else would continue to go back into the business.

I have to say, it wasn’t exactly an easy conversation to tell our families that we’d be leaving our consistent, well-paying jobs to focus on our Amazon business…oh yeah, and taking pay cuts to do it. But they believed in us and we believed in ourselves so we made that leap.

Switching to full-time after only selling part-time for four months is amazing. How much money did you guys have to get started with?
It is a funny story really. I had basically no credit history and Eric had bad credit due to some, shall we say, irresponsible decisions he made while he was in college (he did have the nicest stereo system on campus though). That means we got started with a $600 limit credit card that was in my name and that was it. Our strategy was essentially max out the card, pay it off. Rinse and repeat.

We actually use that same strategy today except our card now has a $100,000 limit. And a cool thing is, even from the very beginning, we have never paid a dime of interest because we have never carried a balance. That is an achievement we are very proud of.

How has your Amazon business grown and changed over the years?
For the first 3 years we were 100% retail arbitrage based. In 2014 we started experimenting with other models to sell on Amazon like Private Label and Wholesale. While Private Label didn’t work out so great for us, wholesale did. It took about 6 months of trial, error and experimenting to get good at it (and putting our own special spin on it), but by the end of 2014 we had finished the year at 1.2 million in sales (our best year yet) and decided to completely transition our business to wholesale.

In 2015 we began hiring employees to help us scale and grow while also moving into the 10,000 sq ft warehouse we currently occupy. We finished 2015 by doing 3.8 million in sales on Amazon.

So far in 2016 (currently April) we are on pace to more than double our 2015 sales as we continue to grow quarter after quarter.

Your Amazon business is now 100% wholesale based. Do you care to explain what that means for those that may not know?
Sure! It just means that we are buying products in large quantities from wholesale companies and manufacturers to sell on Amazon. The products come to you or even better, they will send it to Amazon directly. The best part about wholesale is just how scalable it is and how simple it is to automate.

These days, Eric and I only work about 20 hours a week on our Amazon business and it could be even less if we wanted. This has afforded us the opportunity to work on other projects, such as public speaking, and developing The Wholesale Formula, our in-depth training course that teaches wholesale the way we do it.

You mentioned your course The Wholesale Formula. How do people sign up for it?
Well actually, you can’t sign up for it right now. We do college style enrollment which means we only accept students a couple times a year for a couple weeks at a time. This allows us to really focus on helping those students learn and grow their businesses.

But we actually spend a lot of time helping people for free too! We are part of The Selling Family Facebook group you recently started and it has been a wonderful and engaging group. If anyone has questions about wholesale they can feel free to tag us in there and we will do our best to answer them. It is the least we could do. I don’t know where we would be today without the help and support from many gracious people over the years. You included, Jessica! We were Amazon Boot Camp students once upon a time.

I do appreciate that guys! Ok, one last question from me. What is the single biggest piece of advice you would give to someone aspiring to grow their business like you and Eric have?
I will do you one better. How about I give everyone three pieces of advice instead?

#1 - “Do…or do not. There is no try”
That is not an original piece of advice. That actually comes from Yoda, but it always resonated with me. What I gather from that quote is that you should be someone that takes action, but not just that. If you are going to take action, you want to jump in with both feet. Don’t falter. Don’t try. DO IT.

#2 - Have an insatiable appetite for Learning
I can’t stress this one enough. Every day I am trying to learn something new. From books, to podcasts, to Facebook groups…every day I set aside time to learn because some of my biggest professional breakthroughs have come from the simplest pieces of knowledge or advice I have gleaned.

#3 - If time is the single most important commodity for growing your business then outsourcing should be number two

I have always said, if you value your time at $50 an hour then you better not be spending your time on $10 per hour tasks. A top priority for every entrepreneur should be constantly finding ways to make sure your time is spent on only the highest valued tasks for your business.
