Over the first two weeks I would expect that I put in at least 15-20 hours of work. Maybe an hour a day depending on what I was up to. Initial stock, getting it to the warehouse was 2.25 hours. Watching PPC (literally watching because I wasn’t “doing” anything else) and conversing with review groups, setting up […]

The giveaway duration lasted from August 15 to August 25. My page position for main keyword went from N/A to Page 3 on August 20 (halfway mark) and then Page 1 by the end of the giveaway. You’ll be interested to know, I ran PPC this entire time… That’s right, if you are just joining me, you […]

When you’ve narrowed down your samples and suppliers, it’s time to move forward with talking to factories. I prefer to use Alibaba vs Aliexpress. Filtering Suppliers Before I start looking at the suppliers in the search results, I like to filter the results. Upon entering your product term and hitting search, I check the “Trade Assurance” […]

Basics I will not be sharing my exact product. I’m not Greg Mercer, and cannot afford to divulge my exact product, or give to charity. Maybe in the future I’ll be able to do a live product launch with feedback from the group- perhaps in 2016. Right now, I’m still small potatoes. I can’t afford […]

One goal I have had for 2015, was to get 10 PL items going. It appeared an easy goal in the beginning, at this point  I’m plugging away trying to figure out this secret sauce. Another month down, and this month was quite the roller coaster. I think trying I have put a lot of effort into […]
