Dealing with the Misconception
One of the biggest misconceptions about selling physical products is that you have to spend a whole lot of time managing inventory. What you’re going to learn today is how simple it is to sell physical products on Amazon. You will never have to touch any inventory again. This means that you can leave on vacation anywhere in the world while your business produces sales for you.
After picking up a red-hot product opportunity, all you need to do is to move on to the next step, which is to find a high-quality supplier. Depending on what product you want to sell, your supplier might be located in the USA, China, India or somewhere else. The location of the supplier does not matter too much on how you do this business. Since the steps are nearly identical, once you know this process, you can sell anything you want, anywhere in the world.
Types of Suppliers & How to Find them
There are 2 types of suppliers: body & health suppliers, mainly found in the US, and about everything else, located in China.
If you have found a hot product from the body & health niche, all you have to do in order to discover a great supplier is to go on Google and search for “your product” + manufacturer. You can also search for “product name” + private label. Then you contact the manufacturer, and they will put your logo and your label on a product. Now you will be able to sell your own brand of product, just like many others found on Amazon. The process is the same for any nutritional, beauty product or supplement available on Amazon.
Once you find a supplier, simply send them an email or give them a call. Inside the ASM, as a gift for newcomers, you will discover a new supplier contact template that could come quite in handy.
To find a supplier outside of USA, the process is even easier. There is a massive company called Alibaba that is now worth thousands of billions of dollars. On the main website, you can easily find suppliers for just about any type of product. In fact, you need zero experience to find suppliers on this website.
The process of finding a supplier is quite simple. After you have selected one of your hot-red products on Amazon, you need to go to Alibaba to kickstart your sourcing project. Let’s assume that your selected products is baby crib. On Alibaba, you want to do a quick search for baby cribs, switch to suppliers, go to suppliers by region and select China, and then go to supplier type and check Assessed Supplier and Trade Assurance boxes.
When selecting the supplier, first look at the price. While you don’t want to select a supplier with the highest price, you also want to make sure that you choose a reliable supplier. You also want to look at the minimum order. If it’s more than $2000, you should probably go with something cheaper in the beginning.
After following a few selection criteria explained in the ASM course, all you have to do is to contact the supplier. Simply hit the “Contact Supplier” orange box, go to the bottom page and type in your message to the company. As a bonus, after you sing up, you will receive some free templates that will teach you what to say to the suppliers in order to sound professional and to land the deals you want.
Another great feature you want to leverage is the little check box at the bottom of the message: “Recommend matching suppliers if this supplier doesn’t contact me within 24 hours”. This new feature ensures that Alibaba will take action on your behalf and send messages to similar companies that manufacture the same product, based on your research. These companies will contact you, so you won’t have to spend precious time looking for suppliers.
Moving Further with Amazon FBA
With what you’ve just learn, you can start building your first digital business leveraging the unique power of Amazon by selling real physicalproducts from the comfort of your home. Once you find a supplier, the next step is to use Amazon’s massive system of resources to nearly automate the entire business.
Amazon has a huge network of hundreds of thousands of warehouses all across the world where they store their products. According to Statista.com, almost half of those store items of 3rd party sellers, just like you and other ASM members. This network of warehouses is called FBA, or Fulfillment by Amazon.
Using FBA, you can automate the process of branding products and shipping them directly to the customer. The whole process is explained inside the ASM modules. For now, you can take advantage of the free bonuses offered by Amazing Selling Machine: The Amazon Automation Blueprint for quick success, The Proven Supplier Contact Template and a Private Interview with ASM’s Freight Forwarder.
