Another week, another battle between Amazon vs. Shopify. Both are really great platforms to start your eCommerce business. But which platform is best to start with? Personally, we believe Amazon is the best platform to start with, especially when you're new to the eCommerce business world. Here's some great information on each platform, and towards the end you'll know exactly why we choose Amazon as your first stop.
Selling on Amazon is the best eCommerce platform to use hands down. Amazon has 100s of millions of customers. It’s the largest platform to date and has a relatively small learning curve with how we teach it. You don't need a niche or focus only on 1 product - this is limited thinking. You should sell in 1-2+ Major categories. You can sell thousands of products already ranked and selling on Amazon, which makes scaling your business much more simple. You can build a brand with Amazon and focus not only scaling the business quick, but scaling a long...
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is one of the most popular ways of online marketing, and you can use it on Amazon too. SEO helps your products to show up on the first page of Amazon organically, over time and after being ranked. Needless to say, that it will boost your sales ranking.
The best way to use SEO on Amazon is finding keywords using the predictive search bar and cross-referencing it on a keyword tool such as MerchantWords and using the best keyword in the beginning of your title, and throughout the listing. Having multiple keywords throughout your bullet points and description is also a great asset. Amazon isn't the only one who ranks your item- search engines will also like your product listing if it is well crafted and full of easy SEO content.
Using keywords for SEO on Amazon is one of the most important ways to improve your products findability. When you're filling keywords for SEO on Amazon, you should first start with the most elementary information...
In this video Kevin talks about how dropshipping is one of the best online business for new entrepreneurs that may not have a lot of funds to start with.
Dropshipping is less capital intensive which is helpful to those that are just starting off. It's also a methodology that's taught in some colleges and universities.
It's also one of the easiest and fastest way to scale and grow your eCommerce business. It comes down to investing in yourself and investing on training. It's also about finding the right coach and mentor.
You can start off by getting free knowledge from Kevin's YouTube channel and the free coaching group - but it'll only get you so far.
Take the time to watch this video as it goes indepth on dropshipping, business, mentorship, and coaching.

There is still a few months left in 2020 and it's still enough time to get the ball rolling with your eCommerce business and to help you with your financial freedom. Don't use the excuse that you are going to wait for the new year. It's better to get out of your comfort zone now rather than later because chances are if you wait, you'll most likely be in the same position right now if you decided to wait.
Stop sitting on the couch and waiting. Nothing will get accomplished by doing so. Your way to financial freedom doesn't happen unless you start doing the work. Sitting around just prolongs you from running a successful eCommerce business. Just waiting around, you'll be letting a lot of opportunities to pass you by.
Start by waking up and make a change. What changes would you like to make now? 6 months from now? 1 year or 5 years from now? Jot it down on a piece of paper or type it somewhere on your smartphone. By jotting down what changes you'd like to...
There are many ways to scale and grow your business. Here are the top 8 tips that you should consider during your business journey.
1. THINK LIKE A CUSTOMER.
What would you look for when shopping for a product you have in mind? Look at the packaging, pricing and the product. If you wouldn't purchase it, would your customers?
2. INTERTWINE YOUR EMAIL AND SOCIAL.
By doing this, you can gain more sales by opening up more channels. This will help build and grow your business.
3. LEARN THROUGH DOING.
The best way to have a better understanding and knowing the ins and outs is actually doing the work first then automate your business.
4. MAXIMIZE EMAIL TO CONVERT CUSTOMERS.
In your emails have a clear call to action. Don't overwhelm your customers with a bunch of products. Only have one product that you want to sell. Be personable and add images to capture their attention.
5. USE (AND MAXIMIZE) A FUNNEL APPROACH.
When you're trying to sell a product to your...
A continuation of last week's video blog of BRAND building with dropshipping and not doing FBA.
You don't have to purchase any items upfront- it's VERY low risk, and you only place an order AFTER you make a sale. However, if the item starts selling consistently and it's proven then you can make the executive decision if you'd like to start FBA.
Keep in mind before you start FBA also consider the margins before jumping the gun.
Make sure to watch part 1 if you haven't already!

You're able to build a brand without having to do FBA. FBA is capital intensive if you're sourcing your own products. Dropshipping is less capital intensive, and you can prove validity and get a product to sell without ordering 500 or 1000 units and spending money upfront.
Once a product is proven and is consistently selling you can send it to FBA. However, before you do, you also want to take a look at if it's worth sending to FBA based off if the margins are higher than dropshipping.
Over 90% of Amazon sellers don't do this. This video goes in depth with all that great knowledge.

Deciding to take the plunge and start your eCommerce business? That’s great, we’re here to help you with every step of the way. Are you deciding between Amazon or eBay? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. We’ll break it down for you with Amazon versus eBay.
eBay in general typically has lower fees than most Amazon categories – but Amazon categories such as electronics have lower fees. eBay charges 10% final value fee (FVF), while Amazon charges 15%. eBay charges a PayPal fee (2.9% of the sale price plus a flat rate of $0.30), whereas Amazon does not. eBay sellers keep an average of 5.13% more of their profits than if they sold on Amazon. However, Amazon is 10x bigger than eBay – which means it’s a more suitable platform to scale your business HUGE!
