    Sean Humenchuk : Selling in different categories helps when the market changes quickly

    Sean Humenchuk : Selling in different categories helps when the market changes quickly

    Sean is very humble. He will say he does not have it all figured out. I would ask have you met the person who does? So his advice is strong: Sell in multiple categories to weather the storms that will be coming. Now is the time to diversify. How many of us are heavy seller fulfilling right now? Well there are many Amazon businesses that are not built for it and are feeling the pinch.If you sell in grocery you are likely killing it where most clothing sellers are struggling. So diversification across channels, categories and methods allows you to flex. Fix your "B Plan"!

    Tips:


    1- Work on terms with your vendors


    2- Adjust your Ad Spend


    3- Don't send all your inventory to Amazon


    4- Add a thank you card to your FBM


    5- Revise your listing to recognize people are at home right now

    Wait, they find new products they get in the market. You already know. Um, and then I think product research where if you're looking at, uh, looking to keep the charts and looking at what was selling last summer, uh, and last Christmas are two things that I'm kind of focusing on. Um, because I know if it was selling last Christmas, it's going to be selling again this Christmas most likely.

    Hey, I'm staying with the no pitch a, I'm not pitching any of the services I've got a bunch of sponsors are and a bunch of companies that if you're looking for any services, which you really shouldn't be buying any surfaces right now, but if you are, I have discounts to them and they pay me. So I don't want to hide that. But they're out there in a website just to go check out this episode. But I'm staying with no pitch right now. I want you to focus and put your head down and do the work. Welcome back to the eCommerce momentum podcast. This is episode 431 Sean human check. I brought Sean back on. Um, because I, I just think again, there, there has to be optimism out there. You've got to sit back and say, yeah, this sucks. I mean, it's face it right now.

    429 ; Paul Retherford Scanpower - Don't lose your bread and butter focus when scaling your business

    Get ready for some great advice from someone who sees a lot of successful (and some not so successful) Amazon businesses. It is has been a long time since I had Paul on and Scanpower has advanced so far since then. We catch up, catch up on Scanpower and then Paul gives us advice on taking action steps. Especially useful in these uncertain times. He does give me a special offer (message me to save 20%) but in my no pitch series I will leave that here.

    Welcome back to the e-commerce momentum podcast. It's episode four 29 and Paul Rutherford from scan power. And I've had some Paul on before and we talk about that. Um, as part of my, no pitch a series here, I'm doing a no pitch series because you know, we've got enough challenges going on. I've recorded this awhile ago, but we, it wasn't really happening, um, this full pandemic thing, but we, we, we had some reference to it. Um, they, they have a great program and it gives me a discount and you get a longer money back guarantee, but you know, you shouldn't be buying these things unless you're ready to advance your business. Now I use it because it could do my cost of goods. It can do our inventory. I can see profit and analysis by shipment, by product, by all the things that, um, that you can find from inventory lab.


    Stephen ( (https://www.temi.com/editor/t/i9DAD2QHKJ1pvLBICQjgm_XV_6OMaV3Ik2nD9RxbKtbvf_Mb3Wu-Z-q3mPfD4daBCMJGyXpR35OVfM5Sndk_eoZMGN8?loadFrom=DocumentDeeplink&ts=60.04) ):


    I've used inventory lab two. I ran in parallel and for me, um, just because I've been with skin power forever, it didn't make sense for me to move. Um, they didn't offer anything that scan power didn't. So, you know, if you have a home and stay with it, whatever, you know, but if you're interested in it, um, just message me and I'll have that for you. But I'm not, I'm not going to pitch in this one. It's a really good, interesting, uh, some of the things that he gives us ideas about how to get through challenging times and, and action steps. Take advantage of them. You got some downtime or you're struggling. Like we are just looking at TV in the news all the time. Pull away from it and work on your business. Work on yourself also. So let's get into the podcast and Paul Rutherford

    428 : Stephen & Nick Peterson - Pivoting, spinning, adjusting and surviving challenging times

    How does the phrase go? "May you live in interesting times?" Well here we are. Very challenging to say the least. I see so many sellers struggling (us included). The day Amazon announced no more "non-essential" inventory could be sent in our account went under review. Scary times became even more scary for sure. Just made big bets (Yes they really are bets) and didn't quite work out as we wanted to. But we are on the other side. So Nick (my younger son) and I share what steps we have/are taking to dodge the minefields and get through these challenging times.


    I found that picture of me and Gary V from a while back. Still was cool to me.


    We do have sponsors so it helps us out if you buy from them with our codes as they pay us, but this is a no pitch episode. Please don't add more fees to your business. Streamline, adapt, pivot and plan for your successful future.


    Reach out if I can help in any way. Stephen

    Are you looking forward to 2020 are you looking forward to finally having better control of your business and knowing your numbers? Hi everyone. I'm Anna Hill, CPA e-commerce seller and founder of the popular accounting. We will go Facebook group and my podcast, Amazon accounting podcast. I repeat the phrase, know your numbers so often because I believe that is the key the top sellers have that makes the difference to their success. They can see what is working and more importantly what isn't working. They make adjustments on the fly and they get to do it every month because they have good, strong monthly financial statements. Now, I know it sounds intimidating to figure out how to get from where you are now to that place of having monthly financial statements like these top sellers have. But that's why we created the course Amazon accounting simplified, which will help you understand what it takes to set up, maintain and really manage your business.

    With QuickBooks online in the course we break down step-by-step all that is necessary to know your Amazon specific business.
