Amazon: Bigger Opportunity but More Competition (Especially from China)
Amazon’s revenue has nearly tripled over the last five years and third-party sellers have seen the benefits of that growth. But what most of the YouTube ads won’t tell you is that competition has grown just as fast on Amazon.
That increase in competition has come largely from China. Today, around 60% of third-party sellers are from China. Chinese sellers have lower costs of products, lower costs of labor, and quicker product development times.
Over the last several years of launching multiple 7-figure brands we’ve learned one of the keys to succeeding on Amazon today is differentiating yourself from Chinese competitors. With your Secret Sauce membership we’ll show you exactly how we rank ahead of foreign competitors who have certain cost advantages over us.
Case in point: we currently run 5 brands, and here are our revenue numbers for the past 12 months:
We’ve also sold multiple brands over the years including:
Sold in 2016
Sold in 2019
In 2017, we started a started another brand from scratch, and this has been our revenue trajectory:
The Content-First Recipe That Just Works
Once you’ve chosen a niche and developed solid products, you’ll need to send traffic to your Amazon listings to kickstart the Amazon traffic-and-revenue flywheel.
You can spend a bunch of money on Facebook and Google Ads, but we prefer a much better alternative: building content-based authority websites that we own and support our products brands.
We know that this strategy works, and we want to share the entire thing with you.
But we won’t just give you courses to go through. Instead, we’re going to take you under the hood as we build our newest project:
This is a completely new brand we’re going to build from the ground up, and turn it into a major brand in the hobbies and crafts space.
You’ll see everything in real-time:
- Strategies we use for niche selection, product development, keyword research, and more
- Our wins and challenges; things that work and things that don’t
- Our revenue numbers
Complete transparency. You won’t learn just the theory, you’ll get the actual, practical strategies you can actually apply to your own brands as well.
Access a New Mini-Class Each Month
Each month we’ll deliver you a 60 minute mini-class on one particular aspect of our business that we’re working on that you can apply to your business at the same time.
Niche Selection and Competitor Analysis
Nothing will impact your success more than the niche you choose. Too broad and you’ll be swamped by competition, too narrow and you’ll hit a ceiling for product development. We’ll show you the tools we use to identify low competition niches both for product development and also content development. We’ll show you the exact criteria we’ve used when launching all of our brands including Knitting.com.
Incremental Product Improvements for Big Returns
We’ll show you exactly how we identify our first products when launching a brand, specifically focusing on identifying areas where we can make easy improvements to existing products to give us a competitive advantage. We’ll discuss feasible and non-feasible product changes that you can make and how to create intellectual property for your brand that can keep away the competition.
Working with Contractors, Hiring, and Scaling Your Team
Some people only hire full-time employees and some prefer only to work with contractors & agencies. Regardless, we’ll give you tips for both. We’ll show you how to find the best employees both locally and overseas and we’ll also give real-world advice for working with agencies and contractors, including which areas you should never outsource and which you should always.
