RE: Is anyone importing/selling/dropshipping products on Amazon as a side hustle?
Anyone had any luck with etsy? I found a supplier of some "bohemian" women's jewelry, good quality with semi precious gemstones, the price was so low I said fuck it and ordered a small shipment of a few different designs to test the waters. Did some brand design (pretty simple stuff but clean) Ran a small promotion to gain about a dozen reviews (all good with five stars) and built up a decent sized social media following on Instagram.

No one's buying this shit, even with competitive pricing compared to similar products of equal quality, not even when I run coupons for 10-20%

Im thinking of running a Instagram give away contest or just halving the price and seeing what happens. Sort of disappointed because it appears this should have potential. Maybe I need to give it more attention, it's honestly hard to be passionate about selling women's jewelry but I just want to build a side income out of this.

So you're going from supplier to etsy?

I haven't sold anything on etsy but I have bought a bunch of items off of it. I see a few issues off the bat:

1. You're selling something you don't truly know, people in the jewelry biz are better than you or know more about the industry

2. Your product doesn't have the "etsy vibe," which is "look at me I made this at my house." People love that shit, that's why I've bought off etsy, it isn't mass produced (in theory) like amazon.

3. Jewelry market could be extremely saturated.

Something to think about.

Thanks. All your points are accurate expect point 2, it is handmade and looks like something someone could be making at their house because thats essentially what it is, but its made in China (theres no mention of that on the product page). I may just try moving them to Amazon FBA where there is actually a lot less competition for this style of jewelry.

Is it packaging and better advertising than the bare bones offerings?

Let's say I wanted to do the keychain flashlight market. (As an example)

I'm getting my black flashlight from the same factory as the other guys on Amazon/eBay, but my presentation looks professional, and it costs more, thus people buy?

If that's what you're saying, I'll me scouring the listings looking for a good product.

WIA

To me private labeling is basically playing on the fact people like name brands. Think about it, if you go to the store and there's two HDMI cables. one comes in a plain plastic bag with a white cardboard label that reads "HDMI Cable" and another one for a few bucks more has fancy packaging, talks about how much data it can transmit, clear picture, talks about how the ends are gold capped, blah blah blah. It could be the same cable, same specs but because one has fancier packaging people will buy it, also because one lists the benefits people will buy it. Its just how our consumer behavior seems to work.

In the grand scheme of things most private label products are the same crap someone else is selling the generic version of.

The one edge I give to private label is if I'm going to put my name on something,I'm going to do some quality control and go with the best supplier. So if I'm ordering 1000 pieces of say a phone mount, I'm going to make sure quality is good. Someone else could be buying the same phone mount but maybe they are just buying off Ali Express using different suppliers everytime. They dont have a brand name to protect. They may have the same product as me but they may have 3 out of 10 phone mounts have a plastic piece crack off so someone knows because they buy from my brand that even if its the same product the quality will typically be better, there are no duds or at the very least are fewer duds because I have amazon reviews and a brand to protect.

Also typing and grammatical errors make a huge impact on my eBay/Amazon shopping purchases.

If it reads as if it was written by a Chinese person with autism, I'll pay a couple extra bucks and go with the clearly-worded listing. I know in my heart their the same product. I feel better with the clearly-typed listings.

I have a recent story related to this.

It's lawn and garden season, and my dad was fed up with electric weed trimmers. He wanted a nice gas-powered one, so I went on Craigslist to try and score a used one for a decent price.

I searched for:

Weed Eater
Weed Trimmer
Weed Whacker

All came up with shitty or overpriced listings, and the good ones were gone in minutes (I missed out on two or three by an hour or two).

So on a whim I decided to search for

Weed Wacker (mispelling)

Lo and behold I found a listing that had been up for a while and that clearly no one else had seen. Some guy was selling this monster 2-handle industrial weed cutter (worth several hundred dollars) for super cheap. Score!

I also know that camera gear folks regularly troll Ebay for mispelled lenses from sellers who aren't as knowledgeable about cameras ("Nikor" lenses, for example).

Bad spelling: a double-edged sword!

On Amazon you can take advantage of this by including misspelling in the backend keyword section and by bidding on them on Amazon's PPC platform. Your clicks will be much cheaper than more common search terms.

RE: Is anyone importing/selling/dropshipping products on Amazon as a side hustle?
I've been doing Amazon FBA for about 6 months, so I'll leave my 2 cents.

1) Watch out for gurus

Be careful with the gurus. There are a lot of people claiming to make a lot of money in a short amount of time with FBA, but that's usually revenue, not profit. This is a very capital intensive business. That big number shrinks down quickly when you factor in all the associated costs. When you hear something that's too good to be true, it's probably someone selling an Amazon course or software. As was said before, the best way to learn is by doing.

2) Building a "brand" is largely a waste of time

Everyone says FBA shouldn't be your only channel and that you need to build your own website and following, be it through social, email, whatever. The word "brand" gets thrown out a lot. This sounds good in theory, but as a practical matter, if there's one regret I have since I started, it's wasting too much time trying to build a brand and quality website when all the low hanging fruit is still on Amazon and Ebay. The Amazing Seller guy and whoever else has an FBA podcast these days will talk about how he made a Facebook page, a website, etc for his private label product on Amazon, but I never hear anything about how those are performing. They sound like convenient contingencies that can be easily leveraged in the event of a problem with Amazon, but I guarantee sales are a sliver at best of what Amazon provides. If anyone can prove otherwise though, I'm all ears.

The notion of building a brand for a me-too private label product is not realistic in my opinion. The average Amazon seller is all over the place. Their store isn't a coherent product line so much as a mix of therapeutic pillows, crowbars, and jasmine candles. When the stuff you sell is totally unrelated like this, how do you build a brand? Are you going to make a website for one product? Send people to a dedicated landing page? This screams fly by night brand. Why would people buy from you when trusted sites sell the same thing? Your conversion rate will be less than a percent and you'll be paying for all that traffic. It can be tough to operate on those margins. Amazon listings convert so much higher.

If you have a coherent product line that you want to build into a brand, know that it's a long term commitment. Content is what creates a brand, so unless you know (or more importantly, care) enough about your product niche to regularly produce interesting, useful content, you're really not building a brand. People won't have much "brand experience" on your site other than the logo you paid some guy on Fiverr to make and had the same supplier everyone else uses print on your product.

3) Chinese suppliers have caught up fast

When I started selling my product six months ago, there were Chinese suppliers around, but their listings were crap (one shitty picture, no reviews, poor copywriting, etc). They were also shipping from China, which was a major competitiveness killer for them. Fast forward a few months and now I see Chinese sellers being proactive - they use review platforms to get reviews (I know because people leave the disclaimer in the review section on their listings), they take professional photos, and whatever they can't write, they steal from other sellers with better listings since Amazon doesn't enforce that anyway. And worst of all, they're using FBA now too, which means they can ship just as fast as you. Now you have your supplier doing literally everything you once called a competitive advantage. The only thing left is customer service, but frankly that's mainly responding to messages on time, which they do, and not fussing about returns, which they don't.

The main advantage non-Chinese sellers have is they're generally the first to find profitable niches. Being more tuned in with trends and better at research, you can get a head start on things and make some money before the market gets crowded. Even after new people come in, you can still make money, but I believe it will get a lot harder as Chinese quickly get more savvy with Amazon selling. The best defense against this is to sell products not everyone else can manufacture on the cheap.

Overall thoughts

It probably sounds like I'm very negative towards FBA, but I'm actually not. Despite the above issues, I've made money with it and will continue to sell on Amazon. But I think there's a lot of questionable information out there that people are eager to accept as truth simply because it sounds so great. Be realistic about things. If it's something you want to do full-time, you need to really hustle. At times I find this difficult not because I'm lazy, but because I question the value of what I'm doing. Everyone's different though.

RE: Is anyone importing/selling/dropshipping products on Amazon as a side hustle?
I have a question about Amazon.

Does anyone know how to create "coupon codes" for things sold on Amazon? Someone was asking me about doing this. I guess it's a way you can give a gift to someone, by giving them a coupon code.

Did some research on YouTube and Google, but the advice is not working for me. I think you have to do it at Amazon Seller Central, but it gets vague from there.

Anyone know how to do this?

RE: Is anyone importing/selling/dropshipping products on Amazon as a side hustle?
Here you go:

Log into SellerCentral and click the Advertising -> Promotions tab.

Select the “Money Off” option which will take you to the “Create Promotion” page.

Fill out the fields according to your preferences. There are many options available to sellers on how to run promotions. Please refer to Amazon’s guide HERE for more information.

If you haven’t run a promotion before you will need to select “Create a new product selection” and add the ASIN that you want to run a promotion for. Or you can include your entire catalogue.

I recommend you change the “Buyer gets” field to “Amount off (in $)”, particularly if you are offering a significant discount. This will prevent the customer buying a large amount of your inventory at a heavily discounted rate.

From there set your “Start” and “End” dates and give your promotion an “Internal Description”. Don’t worry your customer won’t see the name you give.

Select "Claim Code", "One redemption per customer" (OPTIONAL), and "Unrestricted".

WARNING: ENSURE YOU DESELECT THE ‘Detail page display text’ AS IF YOU DO NOT YOUR PROMOTION WILL BE DISPLAYED ON YOUR PUBLIC PAGE.

Then scroll down and click “Review”.

You will be taken back to the main promotion page. However, there will be a box at the top of the page. Click “View or modify your promotion”.

Click ‘View or modify your promotion”. This will take you to the View Promotions page. Press “Manage claim codes”.

You will now be viewing the Manage Claim Codes page.

Choose a name and select a quantity of coupons. Don’t worry you can always add more later.

Press “Create” and after about 10 seconds or so refresh the page. You will see a link that says “Download” in the bottom right hand side of the screen.

Download the ‘zip’ file and extract the ‘txt’ file. In the file you will see a large list of single use codes.

Done.

If it's something you want to do full-time, you need to really hustle. At times I find this difficult not because I'm lazy, but because I question the value of what I'm doing. Everyone's different though.

Hey buddy alot of very good advice in this thread. I think alot of people think of FBA as this hands off business that will make you a million Dollars in months. It's actually very labor intensive as well as capital intensive like you said if your actually trying to build a serious business.

As far as building a brand, that is the one area I would disagree and say is important but with a caveat. Many people spend time and money building a brand right off the bat and probably 9 out of 10 times that product or niche doesn't even wind up panning out so they have wasted time money and focus.

My advice is pick one product in a niche which can be expanded upon. Focus on sales and reviews, do nothing else until you get that. Once you hit say 20 reviews then start doing AMazon PPC, if you start before 20 reviews your not going to have a good conversion rate and your wasting your money.

Once you have say 20 sales per day at that point start building a brand around the product. ANything less than that your wasting your time IMHO. At this point you know your onto a fairly good product and niche. Once you hit say 50 reviews, and you can roll out another product without harming your ability to source, keep inventory and promote the first product at this point move onto the second product in the same niche so if your selling hammocks move onto floating tents. Do not do something like sell silicone spatulas and then moveon to phone cases.

At this point you have two products within the same niche, you can at this point start building a brand, private labeling, etc.

The reason a brand/private label sort of one in the same is important is if your selling a generic product and your spending money on giving away free units, reviewkick, amz reviewtrader, etc your essentially building up a product that someone else can come hop on. How pissed would you be if you spend $500 promoting your product, giving away free units, building reviews, rising in search and then someone comes and undercuts you on your own product and wins the buy box? Probably not happy.

This is why brands/private labels or at the very least "bundling" is necessary to keep others off your listing so this doesn't happen.

.

If your planning on doing giveaways definately be sure to join a bunch of Facebook groups who do giveaways. YOu can provide them with promo codes for free or discounted merchandise to build up reviews. There's also sites like ReviewKick.Com and AMZREviewTrader.Com among others where you can do this as well. The two above mentioned are my favorites.

Also check out https://amzpromoter.com.

Good if you want to drive your own traffic to your listings (also can capture emails).

Since I'll be going there anyway, think there's an advantage in physically being in China (Shenzhen, where they make, sell, and forward every cheap piece of crap you buy on Amazon/eBay)? I feel like it would be easier to find products but I don't know jack shit. Thoughts?

RE: Is anyone importing/selling/dropshipping products on Amazon as a side hustle?
I'd join a mastermind. I'm currently selling three products on FBA, two of which I launched in the past two months. Monthly sales are at about $5k. I have one more new product in production and two in development.

I haven't cracked the code to Amazon FBA. But I've listened to lots of Scott V's podcasts. I figure my strengths are in product development and data analysis. Therefore my strategy is to 1) take existing products that sell (according to Jungle Scout) and make one or two unique feature changes to them, and 2) figure out PPC and somehow gain an unfair advantage.

I'm in Southeast Asia.
