Why limited to WW2 only? (Featuring Tank Fest 2018) About Author admin 100 Comments Frieza Saga Is there anyone else out there who watches FBA videos and is extremely apprehensive to jump into it themselves…? I truly do feel as if this is just another too good to be true get rich quick scheme, but every single video seems to be honest genuine people. HELP April 17, 2018 Reply Junaid Ahmad 👏 April 23, 2019 Reply SonicXRage How grueling would it be to conduct retail arbitrage on FBA to net $150 to $300 in profit a month? Your video seemed to be from the point of view of someone doing private labeling or creating his own products for a living, but I plan on doing retail arbitrage just to save for small goals. School leaves me with very little free time, so I thought I could make a few hundred with eBay or FBA at least until I finally have time for a job. Also, since I can't drive yet, I can only source and ship items when my mother has time to drive me (at least once or twice a week). Would FBA still be a major pain if I'm only working on it about 5 or 10 hours a week? April 24, 2019 Reply Jeska Jane that was the bomb ending!!!

Fees are so high, products are so limited you can't make a single fucking dollar on there. It's insane how much they charge now. these sellers make videos on how to sell because they can no longer sell.

I very much appreciate your honesty about Amazon, and your open, frank and humble presentation style, and that you are very articulate. This has been very helpful. Thanks again. April 27, 2019 Reply annuna Do I get to talk to you 1-on-1 if I buy your courses and become your mentee? I currently drive Uber 12 hours a day M-F. I make about $1000/week. My goal would be to make $4000-5000/month with Amazon FBA. Should I first save up tens of thousands of dollars before learning this business?

May 9, 2019 Reply BJL Tv 7:30 May 9, 2019 Reply TradeMark Express Why no mention of trademarks? These are names, slogans and logos – with names are way more important for a start up. This is what a COMPREHENSIVE SEARCH accomplishes that can be done by a reputable trademark attorney or a specialty firm like us. Because there's no way to do yourself a $400 COMPREHENSIVE SEARCH that takes 5-6 hours to catch if a proposed trade name may be infringing on anyone else's prior trademark at the USPTO or any of the 50 States or under Common Law where companies have rights if they are using the same or LIKE name in sound, appearance or meaning even just 1 day before you in commerce. This is a very specialized task and needs a trademark attorney to analyze any resulting conflicts or similarities. IF clear, and you have the funds – get the trademark – as you should if advertising on Amazon. Own the name. No surprises later. What you build you keep. IF you do not have the $275 to file a trademark application, then wait. Test the market. If all goes well, THEN trademark. If not, you spent $400. Cheap. BUT IF the name is blocked, pick another name! Don't worry about slogans or logos. May 12, 2019 Reply Mateusz Productions So what do you mean by high-jackers? Did someone literally contact the same supplier, ordered the same product with your logo and started selling it as well? May 13, 2019 Reply ugur akar Right in the middle of Chinese swamb through baba AliOr dhg May 14, 2019 Reply PM R What did you place in your description? Detail, detail and details. Not saying it is easy but it seems like you've made the wrong decision more than once and not learned from it initially. Just like in your speech you sound very unorganized and not able to manage your time wisely. also how did you educate yourself before you jumped into FBA? there's a lot of good information out there that you can sort through and then come up with a model of how you want to do things and have a plan A b and c there so many different ways to approach it Amazon selling I mean. most things worth having don't come super easy you do have to work toward them what are your goals. What is your plan for improvement on the things that you've done wrong or find challenging? Many successful people who do FBA on Amazon went through what used to be called the School of hard knocks. Meaning they learned and lost in the process but because they recognized the challenges they educated themselves and kept going and have found success. seems like this might be something for you to do also hope your business thrives in the future. May 14, 2019 Reply John Bailey I've heard a lot of success stories from Amazon FBA. I've heard a lot of horror stories as well. I guess the only thing to do is try it yourself and find out for yourself if it's something you can do. Life is about taking chances in my opinion. May 15, 2019 Reply Dag Koj I really don't get the Amazon craz. I've been shopping online since the early 90s and I have not shop with Amazon at all. I did do many searches on Amazon but never really buy anything there. Amazon is just cost too much and there's really no recourse if there's don't go right. I just do my shopping on Ebay and on direct factory purchases. At least on Ebay if things don't go right I can always get my money back and I also get to name my price when I buy things. And the majority of sellers don't charge tax and or shipping. Why even bother with Amazon where you have to pay tax and shipping? If I wanna pay taxes on my purchases I would rather just go straight to the local retailers. May 15, 2019 Reply Dag Koj I really don't get the Amazon craz.

May 15, 2019 Reply jovicrazed You had a supplier make you a new product and didn't get them to send you a sample??? Yikes! Totally agree – that is not a mistake to make again. I'm a fellow Canadian and if and when I need to order product from a hijacker (hopefully never!) or for some other reason and Amazon won't ship it here, I will use a parcel forwarding service. More costs, yes, but may be necessary. However, it's not accurate to say that as a Canadian you cannot order off .com. A lot of .com items can be shipped to Canada. And samples are not free – shipping for samples can be astronomical and in USD. May 16, 2019 Reply Amanda Smith Is it safe to just do some arbitrage? I'm a reader, and sitting in all these books. It'd be nice to be able to send them off and get a little bit back. And FBA just sounds easier than checking my email everyday and shipping out on someone else's schedule.

June 21, 2019 Reply jay man Whats the minimum investment? June 22, 2019 Reply Brandon Tackett very interesting insight June 26, 2019 Reply Deshawn Washington This is a very informative video! Selling FBA is not easy and take works. When starting your brand I recommend getting a trademark for it. Conduct comprehensive research to make sure your brand name is not infringing upon another company's right. Especially when selling on Amazon and trying to get on their Amazon Brand Registry this is extremely important. I hired Trademark Express and they made the process easy for me. I started out small and expanded my business. Investing into the brand name and getting it done the right way is the best thing to do.

July 2, 2019 Reply oliviaD Hey kids, I hate to break it to 'ya, but if you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you are going to have to work hard, long days. No, there is not getting rich with 2 hour days and "passive income". There is no such thing as a free lunch and if it sounds too good to be true it is. The reality – you can have your own business and be successful, but it will be LOT of hard work, and it will happen over time, years. Not overnight, or in a few weeks. It feels like some of you kids think you can "get rich" and have all kinds of material thinks without working hard. You can't. I really like Valuetainment – a great channel for new entrepreneurs, Jordon Peterson is good also. July 6, 2019 Reply Tiffany 17 minutes is forever.
