Success OR Failure in 2018: The Power is in your hands!

Hello Champs!

Another New Year is upon us again; we have set goals, made promises and even the usual New Year Resolutions that nobody adheres to :).

Most of us are doing the usual stuff we do when the year is over; we are primed to repeat the same mistakes of the previous year if we are set on repeating the harmful actions we took in 2017.

This isn’t some pessimistic outlook on the New Year.

It is the SAD TRUTH!

A lot of entrepreneurs will fail this year because they refused to take advantage of new opportunities and wasted their time doing the same ol’ stuff they did last year, leading to the same results.

In 2017, we created a ton of articles to help you sky rocket your e-commerce business to new heights, we dropped HOT Steaming TIPS and TRICKS to aid you in your journey to building a successful online store, heck, we even showed you amazing TOOLS that’ll take your online business to the next level.

All these would definitely be in vain if you didn’t make use of them.

2018 isn’t the year of complacency and inaction! It is the year of fierce competition and innovation!

You cannot remain on the sidelines while others run the race, you cannot choose to be complacent and sit on million dollar ideas while other merchants take advantage of the opportunity, you cannot afford to fail in 2018.

My challenge to you is to shift from complacency to hard work, from inaction to action, from failure to success!

Regardless of where you are currently, or what you feel you have achieved in your business, the truth is that there is always a chance to grow, always an opportunity to learn and improve.

Let us not make the usual New Year resolutions that nobody takes serious anymore, instead let us set business goals that will challenge us, keep us on our toes and help our business grow.

But REMEMBER!

It is useless setting goals without taking action!

We must be ready to act upon the knowledge we have gained, and I assure you that if we can ‘act,’ 2018 will be a year of tremendous success!

Success or failure is within your reach and based on the moves you make.

You are captain of your soul and master of your fate.

The ball is in your court…

Happy New Year guys!

Take care 🙂

 Claudia says at 21:30 et
There are many advertising networks allowing you to start a retargeting campaign for your online store. Facebook, Google, Twitter. Use retargeting apps such as Rontar (for retargeting on Google) and RetargetApp and Shoelace (for Facebook retargeting).

Ships from - your factory or your sourcing agend address. fulfillment center is decided by Amazon not you! (when you create a shipment)

hire copyright lawyer to do a quick research. Check trademarkia.com also google your keyword and see who might be selling related to it and close to it, what domains are free etc.

I have good success with Print On Demand T-Shirts and Mugs.. Search Tee launch and Tee spring... Best part is that you don't need to dropship - they fullfill orders for you! Hard part is to get it profitable. You must find a passionate niche. Use the Niche finder from sellslikehotcakes - see menu above

Try DOG stickers. Give them away for free and charge 2 usd for shipping. Then upsell your customers with second offer!

Nick, Jewerly is super seller. Find it cheap on aliexpress, you typically spend $1.00 per item – $1.50 to acquire a customer – $2.00 Shipping and then we sell them for $15.00 + a $19.99 upsell which converts at like 20%...

necklace+ earlings
ring then upsell earrings

make sure it is related to your passionate niche (ie dog lovers etc)

Example PUG Necklace https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?catId=0&initiative_id=AS_20170218084713&SearchText=pug+necklace

Videos provide two examples of searching niche. I need more. By the time I go to camel, and best finder, and video, back and forth, i get lost. I thought I found something, all looked good, until I went to aliexpress. Price was more than amazon! That was hours of research for a dead end. Maybe I'm not doing it right.

Aliexpress price does not have to be lower than amazon.. Aliexpress is only good for Shopify Dropshipping business.

If you plan AMAZON FBA business, then check prices on Alibaba, not on amazon! hope it helps!
 
5
Leslie says at 22:56 et
Can't do FBA until business succeeds. The lower the price when buying, the better one can compete with anyone. I don't want to stock or ship, so I'll stick with the dropshipping model. I'll Keep searching I guess.The videos however are very good. Some company tried to sell me $3500 dollar CDN course on dropshipping. Was already doing what they are teaching. This is way better!

 Claudia says at 22:57 et
Thank you Leslie. Don't buy into overpriced courses. All the tools you need is right here. FBA model you can also start without big investments using the "alibaba wholesale" instead of whitelabelling... One of the videos cover it.

Over the next few weeks, I’d like to do something a little bit different. 

I thought it would be fun to ask people what they wanted to learn about (so I can customize my future emails to help YOU :-D).

Here's your first question...

What is your #1 single biggest ecommerce challenge right now (and how is it impacting your life on a daily basis)?

Gad says at 17:43 et
Hello everyone :-) my name is Gadi, and I'm a new member. Glad to meet you all , and looking forward to be part of your community :)
I would like to ask few questions:
First I'm thinking of adding a donation component to my sales. so part of the profit goes to donation. Is it sounds reasonable, regarding the expenses ?
Second - as I said I live in the UK, will it be a mistake to sell only for the UK market in order to save costs of transaction fees, and saving shipping time. I'm not sure that the thinking is correct, but as I said, I'm a newbie.. thanks, gadi

 Chris says at 17:45 et
Welcome Gad! Donation component is a great way to boost your sales but it must be linked to a good cause and make sense, so that your product is somehow linked to a good story that makes sense

hi Gad. Regarding UK question you did not explain if you do dropshipping or FBA? Anyways you can start with UK and expand!

Gad says at 08:03 et
Thank you all for your comments
Regarding your question Mike, I thought about
Dropshipping at first
 
8
Gad says at 08:03 et
Two more questions please :
Is there AliExpress in UK, so the shipping would be shorter ?
Second - is it possible and profitable to creat one store, and then inside to create few nitches in it ?

 Mike says at 08:05 et
Gad, Aliexpress is a chinese company. They ship internationally but it's always from china. You can watch video on finding local dropshipping suppliers in your niche in UK if you want to go local route.
Regarding the store - again it depends on what you plan to sell. See my video about branding talking about small brand or more general brand to have better idea!

Gad says at 04:58 et
Thanks !

Ernesto says at 03:39 et
how much should i charge for international shipping for "free + shipping offers"? If a client buys a "free+shipping offer" directly from my site more than once - how much should i charge for every "free+shipping item" added?

 Lane says at 03:41 et
It's hard to say without knowing your product, location or shipping costs how much you should charge. Best tip here is see what competitor is charging so you will get a rough idea. Maybe $19.95 for a Tshirt or $9.95 for a Mug

I don't see a need to limit the amount of "free+shipping item" as long as you are making profits and have good margins

A says at 04:51 et
Hi,
I have finished watching the video about "incorporation and taxes" but I'm lost. If I understood correctly the suggested way to open a seller central account is as a professional.
-What do I need to open a professional account?
-Do I need a LLC? bank account? address??
Can someone explain ---> my situation will be "Rest of the world selling in the US"
Thank you!

 jo says at 04:52 et
You need an LLC, Bank account and a credit card. Yes your company does not have to be from USA even if you plan to sell in USA
