Each week I am trying to update everyone on my apparently audacious goal this year, which was to set out at the end of January to go directly to China, source a bunch of products, get them on a boat before Chinese New Year, get them back to the US, and launched before I leave to go back to China at the end of March or less than 60 days. That is like launching 1 product a day for 50 days.

To bring you up to speed. We did successfully get to China and got most of our orders on the boat before CNY. We did get samples for all but 1 of my product shipped to me via DHL from the warehouse in China. So we have been doing all the work leading up to the arrival and prep of the products.

To bring you up to speed. We did successfully get to China and got most of our orders on the boat before CNY. It actually went to sea on 2/1/16 and made it to our warehouse in 41 days from shipping. We did get samples for all but 1 of my product shipped to me via DHL from our warehouse in China. So we have been doing all the work leading up to the arrival and prep of the products.

Whew…

So, before I left for China we were slammed with customer’s products, and my own goods took 41 days to arrive. That delayed my launching by a couple of weeks. It finally looks like that is clearing up, so now I get to put some time into our products before the tidal wave of customer’s goods come in the next 30 to 45 days. Oh, did I tell you I got 15 more products while in China in early April? 100% customized and will be done in 30 days. Meaning, I have more goods on the way for existing niches after we finish these. As many of you know my goal is 150 new products this year. May or may not hit that but again if we try and miss by a little we still move the needle forward significantly in the business.

Here is the plan so far.

List the 10 to 15 products that are ready to go, with boxes, labels, etc. and begin launches for reviews. Most of these are products with a low freebie giveaway, so I should be able to use my existing customer base to launch them without going outside to a service. Looking for 20 reviews or so max and a strong PPC campaign. I do have 3 launches that are in very competitive markets and will require hundreds if not thousands of giveaway products to get moving and for those right now I will be using a service.

They are ready to go now so we can make it happen and start selling these ASAP. Once my brain gets over the fog of jet lag this week I should get those moving.

What is holding us up?

The photos for all the remaining products are done, but I do have some copy-write info, some watermarks (not the type your thinking of but small inconspicuous marks that allow me to prove a stolen photo is mine.) and some call outs, which should finish this part, but that is for over 1000 photos so it is a lot of work and will take at least a week for my Photoshop person to finish them all.

For the most part it is label and package time in the warehouse and that is a job (or 4 jobs) work. Inserts are done, labels for some goods still need to be printed on our high speed label printers.

Here is what has happened so far!

I just got back from China to help 20 people learn to Source and Launch Products like me and several of my very successful friends do. It is a trip I make 3 times a year and love every minute of it except for the plane trip.

It was a great event, with great sourcing, and almost everyone did extremely well. and since I had soloed the trip this time I was pretty happy most were taking to the style and tricks fairly well. I did notice a few reluctant people who were not doing well and sourced less than the rest in products, after shelling out over 5k for the trip it made me wonder about what type of person would do that. I spent extra one on one time with each of those people and learned a little about them and tried to help them with their challenges. Most we were able to help easily be identifying the source of the problem and addressing it. Normally this would take me just taking them without the rest of the group to source and showing them again how I put the products together and how by asking simple questions we could find dozens of opportunities in less than an hour. (more…)

 

I do not know about you but I love to watch Shark Tank. It motivates me to see others doing well,but also educated me when people do not do well. Many time I see Mark Cuban or Mr Wonderful Kevin O’Leary tell people who have nice products that are doing what people think is well on Amazon that they do not want to invest in their business because it is not a business. And they are 100% right.
