    Jim clarifies what a replen is and how knowing this is intregal to your success  
    Lots of discussion on why Keepa is so important to your Amazon business
     
    Question
    My question is, I'm in Canada and I did start my journey as a private label seller and that didn't go too well and then I joined you I think a year ago, should I sell here or in the US?
    You have a very unique advantage living in Canada. We've got some cross border training coming from Debbie on our team here and we're going to actually be rolling it out at the conference in May. https://theprovenconference.com
     
    Question
    My question is how do I do replens? I've always done replens and home goods products which sell very well but I have to get my income up more.
    Replens definition
    Let's talk about what a replen is real quick.
    The difference between where you are now and having a business where you pay someone to put tape on boxes which is $12 $15 an hour work, you need to be spending time perfecting your Keepa skills. 
    You really got to dive into replens, find test worthy asins and build your book of ASINs
    When you start off in the Proven Amazon Course you're going to start off with Amazon 101, then both Replens courses we offer in the PAC. You will see exactly where to start on the tab "get started" and that's going to keep you busy the next three or four months.
     
    Question 
    What podcast could help me understand keepa charts?
    If you want a shortcut get the course get the proven Amazon course go through Kickstart. https://silentjim.com/kickstart/

    #815: What's the one magic strategy that helps all students suddenly "get it"?

    #815: What's the one magic strategy that helps all students suddenly "get it"?

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but after helping hundreds of students succeed on Amazon last year we are positive that "There is No Magic Formula".
     
    We can teach you the SYSTEM, but there are lessons to learn and opportunity comes with a steady ongoing learning curve.
     
    This new podcast episode discusses the opportunities and complexities of finding profitable Amazon products (aka Amazon Standard Identification Numbers or ASINs).
     
    We address the common misconception that there's a simple magic formula for success in selecting "winning profitable" ASINs. There just isn't!
     
    The discussion emphasizes the importance of matching any ASIN you find with a reputable source, avoiding third-party sellers, ensuring brand accuracy, and verifying listing details. It further highlights that testing is crucial for gaining experience, understanding inventory placement, improving account health, receiving seller feedback, and uncovering profit opportunities.
     
    Once you have these habits, you will be an ASIN hunting NINJA, but until then, you're taking unnecessary risks and cutting your success short!
     
    The episode advises testing safely by choosing fast-moving items, protecting capital, and being open to testing rather than finding reasons not to. It concludes that there's no universal formula for testing or replenishing ASINs, stressing that experience and inventory control, even with a small number of units, are key to making informed decisions.
     
    The importance of diligence and careful evaluation is underscored in the conclusion.
     
    Special guest at the conclusion of today's show, Jeff Schick of https://JeffSchick.com answers the question: "Can the actions I take with my amazon SHOPPING (buyer) account effect my Amazon SELLER account?"

    The answer is it depends!

    Question-If I leave an as I'm run out of an as out of a stock and I'm not sure if I'm going to continue with that ASIN or not? Do I have to close it out or can I leave it as it is?
    Not an issue but there are considerations here.
     
    Question -If Amazon is on the listing should I avoid that ASIN?
    More thoughts on this strategy a bit later in the show.
     
    Question - When I get good inventory listed I get a letter from the supplier saying that I am not authorized to sell, how do I deal with this?
    Jeff Schick is a terrific resource here https://jeffschick.com

    Question - Why it doesn’t always matter that Amazon is selling on the ASIN?

    #812: Lessons and insights about multiple streams of online income from a 24 year veteran

    #812: Lessons and insights about multiple streams of online income from a 24 year veteran

    For over 20 years, the only income my family and I have had is from multiple online ventures. I've learned many valuable lessons about growing online streams of revenue over this time and on today's episode I break down the most important elements of the journey.
     
    I explain why we start the vast majority of our new students with Amazon selling. I also discuss the three categories of opportunity that we see online (all business ideas online fit into one of these three).
     
    If you can BUILD SYSTEMS (automate processes) and PURSUE RELATIONSHIPS (surround yourself with others on a similar journey) you can also build great income streams online.

5 ⭐️ because 10 isn’t an option

I absolutely love this podcast. LOVE it. If you’re here because you’re interested in getting started in Amazon selling, sort the episodes “latest to oldest.” I think it’s more inspiring to hear from those earlier on in their journey, very relatable because they still remember their rookie struggles. The coaches’ corner episodes are CHEF’S KISS! And there’s a segment to hear tips from a lawyer who helps sellers with policy and issues. I love this podcast. I’m a student of the Proven Amazon Course (this is the companion podcast to that library of information—though it’s brilliant as a stand alone) and I have hope for the future for the first time since the pandemic. Read that again. I know I’m not the only one who has yet to recover…
In a world FULL of scams, congratulations, you’ve found the real deal 🍾🥂

Insecurity to the max

Holy schmokes, Batman! Just listened (only could handle 10 minutes) to 2 of the most insecure, “hey look at me guys!” Fraudsters I have heard. Less people like this with a “voice”, the betterment of society will be.

Good ideas cloaked in seemingly far-right Christian values

I started listening to this show a year ago and quickly realized some key things:

1. Free advice but constantly being sold their proprietary courses and coaching.

2. I was quickly ostracized by Jim and his guests’ mostly far-right Christian philosophy.

Many episodes steer away from the point and spiral down the rabbit hole of religious beliefs such as homeschooling and anti LGBTQ+. Although not directly saying they’re not anti LGBTQ+, referencing strong biblical beliefs in marriage as a man and woman pretty much means the same thing.

If you’re not religious, I’d recommend going elsewhere and save your money. I bought the outdated course but canceled after realizing that this is also an evangelical pursuit by the host. Although not LGBTQ+, I do support those that are and this show is not what I want to support. As for homeschooling, some of the guests scream Mom’s For Liberty mindsets.

I have no issues with religion, as long as it does not interfere or try to influence my business decisions, lifestyles, or other’s right to live their lives as they choose.

This show screams cultish behavior and should be taken with a grain of salt. Makes me wonder if Jim and his company employ anyone that does not share their beliefs., considering this is not advertised as a religious organization but as a service.
