AMAZON FBA: Why I Decided to Stick with Product #1

https://youtu.be/kFF0IOv6N40

Why I decided to stick with product #1:

I owe you an explanation.

In several videos, you have watched me hem and haw about sticking with my first product and re-ordering versus moving forward and trying my luck with somethings else.

I’ve decided to go all in and re-order my first product. I believe that I can make incremental changes to increase my margin overtime, as well as raise my sales. I can turn this product from a zero to a hero.

Watch to see what I mean!

1
00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:04,140
there has been a lot of hand-wringing

2
00:00:01,949 –> 00:00:06,859
about this that you will be happy to

3
00:00:04,140 –> 00:00:09,570
know I’m ready to move forward

4
00:00:06,859 –> 00:00:11,400
hey welcome back for another episode of

5
00:00:09,570 –> 00:00:13,620
the disrupting tea queer beginners

6
00:00:11,400 –> 00:00:15,660
filled businesses I am glad you’re here

7
00:00:13,620 –> 00:00:18,300
today because I am going to tell you all

8
00:00:15,660 –> 00:00:20,520
about why I ultimately decided to stick

9
00:00:18,300 –> 00:00:22,619
with product one so you all know you’re

10
00:00:20,520 –> 00:00:24,210
very well acquainted with the struggles

11
00:00:22,619 –> 00:00:26,310
I’ve had with product one and it’s just

12
00:00:24,210 –> 00:00:28,949
kind of lack of profitability I wasn’t

13
00:00:26,310 –> 00:00:31,109
making any money off of it at all and so

14
00:00:28,949 –> 00:00:32,189
I talked about it in other videos and I

15
00:00:31,109 –> 00:00:35,130
was like I don’t know what I’m going to

16
00:00:32,189 –> 00:00:37,829
do and I finally know what I’m going to

17
00:00:35,130 –> 00:00:40,710
do and that is I am reordering I’m going

18
00:00:37,829 –> 00:00:43,140
all-in I guess on another 250 order unit

19
00:00:40,710 –> 00:00:44,730
of product 1 and this one is going to be

20
00:00:43,140 –> 00:00:46,950
successful and it’s going to make me

21
00:00:44,730 –> 00:00:49,590
money and I have the numbers to back

22
00:00:46,950 –> 00:00:50,940
that up I know why and that’s what I’m

23
00:00:49,590 –> 00:00:53,579
going to share with you today so as I

24
00:00:50,940 –> 00:00:56,520
mentioned before product 1 I was selling

25
00:00:53,579 –> 00:00:58,920
at $24.99 and when I first launched I

26
00:00:56,520 –> 00:01:00,739
was selling quite a bit and then it just

27
00:00:58,920 –> 00:01:03,329
kind of was tapering off that I was

28
00:01:00,739 –> 00:01:05,970
averaging between 1 and 3 sales a day

29
00:01:03,329 –> 00:01:09,689
really more like two or three a day at

30
00:01:05,970 –> 00:01:11,490
that $24.99 price point however was PBC

31
00:01:09,689 –> 00:01:13,920
and with the cost of goods and all that

32
00:01:11,490 –> 00:01:15,840
stuff I was really making very little

33
00:01:13,920 –> 00:01:18,210
money probably less than two dollars a

34
00:01:15,840 –> 00:01:20,159
unit depending on what my PPC spent had

35
00:01:18,210 –> 00:01:22,020
been for the day and I was like this is

36
00:01:20,159 –> 00:01:24,210
crazy I mean because it is crazy right

37
00:01:22,020 –> 00:01:27,659
like you don’t go in business to make $2

38
00:01:24,210 –> 00:01:29,610
$4 a day and so I was like this isn’t

39
00:01:27,659 –> 00:01:31,140
working I don’t think that I’m going to

40
00:01:29,610 –> 00:01:33,329
do 4 with this I think I’m just going to

41
00:01:31,140 –> 00:01:34,770
say this was not a success and go do

42
00:01:33,329 –> 00:01:36,299
something else then I got the

43
00:01:34,770 –> 00:01:37,979
opportunity to shop with Scott bulk

44
00:01:36,299 –> 00:01:39,960
we’re on this podcast which is really

45
00:01:37,979 –> 00:01:42,210
cool somehow I worked my way into a free

46
00:01:39,960 –> 00:01:43,649
coaching call with him and he was like

47
00:01:42,210 –> 00:01:46,920
you know I really think that you can do

48
00:01:43,649 –> 00:01:47,970
some stuff to lower your cost and if

49
00:01:46,920 –> 00:01:49,950
you’re already selling and you’ve

50
00:01:47,970 –> 00:01:53,009
already invested in getting photography

51
00:01:49,950 –> 00:01:55,380
in UPC code and all that stuff and you

52
00:01:53,009 –> 00:01:56,009
can probably turn this around and I was

53
00:01:55,380 –> 00:01:58,890
like yeah okay

54
00:01:56,009 –> 00:02:00,479
I really just thought I was humoring him

55
00:01:58,890 –> 00:02:02,790
a little bit but like there’s no way

56
00:02:00,479 –> 00:02:06,049
like you don’t know my life come on but

57
00:02:02,790 –> 00:02:08,729
what I did was I contacted some shipping

58
00:02:06,049 –> 00:02:11,039
companies from freight forwarders that’s

59
00:02:08,729 –> 00:02:12,400
the word I was looking for and I got a

60
00:02:11,039 –> 00:02:17,170
quote back and I

61
00:02:12,400 –> 00:02:20,140
save $700 plus on shipping those 250

62
00:02:17,170 –> 00:02:21,849
units and and that’s she C shipping I

63
00:02:20,140 –> 00:02:23,530
love you a little bit more for air

64
00:02:21,849 –> 00:02:24,939
shipping I’m still waiting on that final

65
00:02:23,530 –> 00:02:26,470
quote but they said it was going to be

66
00:02:24,939 –> 00:02:29,290
pretty competitive so we’ll see I’m

67
00:02:26,470 –> 00:02:31,390
excited about that I also contacted my

68
00:02:29,290 –> 00:02:34,359
supplier and asked for a discount on

69
00:02:31,390 –> 00:02:37,450
pricing they said that because I wasn’t

70
00:02:34,359 –> 00:02:39,760
ordering more it’s a higher moq to get a

71
00:02:37,450 –> 00:02:41,590
lower rate I’m not ready to invest that

72
00:02:39,760 –> 00:02:44,079
much money if you’re like $8,000 in

73
00:02:41,590 –> 00:02:46,389
product costs I’m not really ready to do

74
00:02:44,079 –> 00:02:48,670
that yet but you know we are working

75
00:02:46,389 –> 00:02:51,129
towards I know what my next goal is to

76
00:02:48,670 –> 00:02:52,930
be able to get lower cost on on the

77
00:02:51,129 –> 00:02:54,670
products so this is exciting this is all

78
00:02:52,930 –> 00:02:58,030
good stuff turns out there is money to

79
00:02:54,670 –> 00:02:59,650
be made or saved in this case selling so

80
00:02:58,030 –> 00:03:02,739
now the next shipment if I sold it

81
00:02:59,650 –> 00:03:04,329
$24.99 I know I could make a profit

82
00:03:02,739 –> 00:03:05,790
that’s pretty exciting I probably get

83
00:03:04,329 –> 00:03:08,620
out more around five dollars a unit

84
00:03:05,790 –> 00:03:09,489
which isn’t that pretty I would be

85
00:03:08,620 –> 00:03:11,379
pretty happy with that

86
00:03:09,489 –> 00:03:14,500
but let me tell you I am really excited

87
00:03:11,379 –> 00:03:17,319
about ordering products one again as I

88
00:03:14,500 –> 00:03:19,090
was getting lower in inventory I’ve

89
00:03:17,319 –> 00:03:22,810
raised my rate I raised my rate from

90
00:03:19,090 –> 00:03:26,739
$24.99 to $29.99 which is absolutely

91
00:03:22,810 –> 00:03:27,970
like top a market for this product and I

92
00:03:26,739 –> 00:03:29,409
was like you know it’s going to slow

93
00:03:27,970 –> 00:03:32,290
down I’m probably only going to sell one

94
00:03:29,409 –> 00:03:34,030
every day or so but who cares not making

95
00:03:32,290 –> 00:03:36,459
money anyway and least that way I’ll

96
00:03:34,030 –> 00:03:37,750
make a little bit of money and I will go

97
00:03:36,459 –> 00:03:40,540
out of stock before I give this

98
00:03:37,750 –> 00:03:43,269
opportunity to order and more funny

99
00:03:40,540 –> 00:03:45,879
thing happened myself looks doubled so I

100
00:03:43,269 –> 00:03:49,209
went from selling about one to three a

101
00:03:45,879 –> 00:03:52,629
day at $24.99 to throw in four to eight

102
00:03:49,209 –> 00:03:54,069
a day at $29.99 that’s more than

103
00:03:52,629 –> 00:03:56,260
doubling but you get my point

104
00:03:54,069 –> 00:03:59,590
I was shocked so now not only do I know

105
00:03:56,260 –> 00:04:02,620
at $24.99 I can make it okay profit

106
00:03:59,590 –> 00:04:04,569
selling this product but at $29.99 I can

107
00:04:02,620 –> 00:04:08,049
make a better product and potentially

108
00:04:04,569 –> 00:04:09,849
sell way more sign me up that was the

109
00:04:08,049 –> 00:04:12,310
happiest accident I think I’ve ever had

110
00:04:09,849 –> 00:04:14,799
so but here’s the problem right I raised

111
00:04:12,310 –> 00:04:16,389
my price so I wouldn’t go out of stock

112
00:04:14,799 –> 00:04:18,639
and now I’m selling faster than I’ve

113
00:04:16,389 –> 00:04:22,650
ever sold before so I’ve raised my price

114
00:04:18,639 –> 00:04:25,949
again from 34 sorry from $29.99

115
00:04:22,650 –> 00:04:27,930
to $34.99 and sales dropped but they

116
00:04:25,949 –> 00:04:30,870
went down to the same rate I was selling

117
00:04:27,930 –> 00:04:33,120
at $24.99 I’m back into that 1 2 3 sales

118
00:04:30,870 –> 00:04:36,030
range rate and I’m like I can’t even

119
00:04:33,120 –> 00:04:39,210
believe so you’re telling me for the

120
00:04:36,030 –> 00:04:41,550
first 175 units I could have been

121
00:04:39,210 –> 00:04:44,520
selling them at the same velocity sing

122
00:04:41,550 –> 00:04:47,280
sales velocity for $10 profit more I

123
00:04:44,520 –> 00:04:49,800
mean that now I’m making even with my

124
00:04:47,280 –> 00:04:54,270
high cost – good 12 dollars and five

125
00:04:49,800 –> 00:04:56,460
cents a unit profit much so hey guys

126
00:04:54,270 –> 00:04:59,430
here’s the cake away tester price

127
00:04:56,460 –> 00:05:02,070
because you don’t know where you’re you

128
00:04:59,430 –> 00:05:03,810
know your sales of your profit curve is

129
00:05:02,070 –> 00:05:06,210
going to peak out because my peaked out

130
00:05:03,810 –> 00:05:08,639
at $29.99 and I never would have guessed

131
00:05:06,210 –> 00:05:11,970
that for my first 250 units that I saw

132
00:05:08,639 –> 00:05:13,830
I’ve had very low PPC spent I’ve got it

133
00:05:11,970 –> 00:05:15,810
started that I have not spent a lot of

134
00:05:13,830 –> 00:05:17,400
money on it I think five dollars a day

135
00:05:15,810 –> 00:05:19,979
would be like the absolute most I’ve

136
00:05:17,400 –> 00:05:22,620
spent so far I also did no outside

137
00:05:19,979 –> 00:05:24,599
marketing I had nothing outside driving

138
00:05:22,620 –> 00:05:26,970
sale to Amazon’s with read people to buy

139
00:05:24,599 –> 00:05:28,830
my product and then finally I had no

140
00:05:26,970 –> 00:05:31,020
giveaway I have mentioned in the past

141
00:05:28,830 –> 00:05:33,419
also the giveaways just never really

142
00:05:31,020 –> 00:05:36,120
appealed to me that much I really never

143
00:05:33,419 –> 00:05:39,539
wanted to play that game I did talk with

144
00:05:36,120 –> 00:05:40,979
this guy who runs fetcher which is in

145
00:05:39,539 –> 00:05:42,720
partnership with jumbo Scout and he was

146
00:05:40,979 –> 00:05:44,940
like you know if you gave away like 25

147
00:05:42,720 –> 00:05:47,639
units five a day for five days that

148
00:05:44,940 –> 00:05:49,560
could really bump your VSR you probably

149
00:05:47,639 –> 00:05:51,930
really surprised at how many fields you

150
00:05:49,560 –> 00:05:54,510
started to get just from doing that so

151
00:05:51,930 –> 00:05:56,280
it’s something I am considering and

152
00:05:54,510 –> 00:05:58,110
still just it’s not excited about it

153
00:05:56,280 –> 00:06:00,630
it’s still not excited about just giving

154
00:05:58,110 –> 00:06:02,250
away product but if you can spend a

155
00:06:00,630 –> 00:06:03,659
little money to make a lot of money then

156
00:06:02,250 –> 00:06:05,460
that’s a trade that we should always

157
00:06:03,659 –> 00:06:07,919
make so the other thing that I did not

158
00:06:05,460 –> 00:06:09,960
do on the very first unit if you order

159
00:06:07,919 –> 00:06:13,020
or shipment now I have some other areas

160
00:06:09,960 –> 00:06:15,360
that I know I can improve in order to

161
00:06:13,020 –> 00:06:18,599
probably sell at a higher sell

162
00:06:15,360 –> 00:06:20,280
philosophy right lower my BSR that would

163
00:06:18,599 –> 00:06:22,260
be adding more pictures right now I only

164
00:06:20,280 –> 00:06:24,060
have studio photos I don’t have any

165
00:06:22,260 –> 00:06:26,220
lifestyle pictures and I always hear

166
00:06:24,060 –> 00:06:28,199
that people really like lifestyle

167
00:06:26,220 –> 00:06:29,970
pictures another thing is I could do

168
00:06:28,199 –> 00:06:31,770
giveaways if I choose to do that and

169
00:06:29,970 –> 00:06:33,660
then the last thing would be the

170
00:06:31,770 –> 00:06:35,669
hence brand content I don’t have that

171
00:06:33,660 –> 00:06:38,400
currently only available through brand

172
00:06:35,669 –> 00:06:40,349
register which I were working on but

173
00:06:38,400 –> 00:06:42,240
it’s a longer process now we need to get

174
00:06:40,349 –> 00:06:44,909
trademark we’ll talk about that in

175
00:06:42,240 –> 00:06:46,440
another video but I looking at that

176
00:06:44,909 –> 00:06:47,970
enhance brain content because a lot of

177
00:06:46,440 –> 00:06:49,860
my competitors have that that’s just

178
00:06:47,970 –> 00:06:51,509
something else that I note will only

179
00:06:49,860 –> 00:06:53,310
help it certainly is not going to hurt

180
00:06:51,509 –> 00:06:54,690
so we’re going to work towards that also

181
00:06:53,310 –> 00:06:57,330
I guess in the end of the day I was just

182
00:06:54,690 –> 00:06:58,860
like Megan this is a good product and

183
00:06:57,330 –> 00:07:01,530
it’s selling with you basically doing

184
00:06:58,860 –> 00:07:03,360
nothing with it so if we put a little

185
00:07:01,530 –> 00:07:05,400
effort into it we can probably sell a

186
00:07:03,360 –> 00:07:08,340
lot more and that’s what I’ve decided to

187
00:07:05,400 –> 00:07:10,199
do is really focus on making product one

188
00:07:08,340 –> 00:07:11,190
is success and I will tell you that

189
00:07:10,199 –> 00:07:13,800
there are some of you guys in the

190
00:07:11,190 –> 00:07:17,069
comment section that kind of kicked my

191
00:07:13,800 –> 00:07:18,659
butt on me wanting to just drop it and

192
00:07:17,069 –> 00:07:20,310
move on to the next product and not

193
00:07:18,659 –> 00:07:22,199
really taking time to figure out what

194
00:07:20,310 –> 00:07:24,690
was wrong what I did wrong with the

195
00:07:22,199 –> 00:07:26,159
first product so thank you guys so much

196
00:07:24,690 –> 00:07:28,229
for being that support and that

197
00:07:26,159 –> 00:07:29,729
accountability for me I couldn’t do it

198
00:07:28,229 –> 00:07:31,530
without you do you have any questions

199
00:07:29,729 –> 00:07:33,479
about anything I didn’t cover here about

200
00:07:31,530 –> 00:07:36,180
how it ultimately came to the decision

201
00:07:33,479 –> 00:07:37,110
to stick with product one reorder and go

202
00:07:36,180 –> 00:07:38,940
all in on it

203
00:07:37,110 –> 00:07:40,560
leave those down in the comment section

204
00:07:38,940 –> 00:07:42,300
below I will certainly be checking in

205
00:07:40,560 –> 00:07:43,620
and happy to answer any other questions

206
00:07:42,300 –> 00:07:46,409
that you have for me there

207
00:07:43,620 –> 00:07:49,699
as always guys take care have a great

208
00:07:46,409 –> 00:07:49,699
week I will talk to you next time
1
00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:04,140
there has been a lot of hand-wringing

2
00:00:01,949 –> 00:00:06,859
about this that you will be happy to

3
00:00:04,140 –> 00:00:09,570
know I’m ready to move forward

4
00:00:06,859 –> 00:00:11,400
hey welcome back for another episode of

5
00:00:09,570 –> 00:00:13,620
the disrupting tea queer beginners

6
00:00:11,400 –> 00:00:15,660
filled businesses I am glad you’re here

7
00:00:13,620 –> 00:00:18,300
today because I am going to tell you all

8
00:00:15,660 –> 00:00:20,520
about why I ultimately decided to stick

9
00:00:18,300 –> 00:00:22,619
with product one so you all know you’re

10
00:00:20,520 –> 00:00:24,210
very well acquainted with the struggles

11
00:00:22,619 –> 00:00:26,310
I’ve had with product one and it’s just

12
00:00:24,210 –> 00:00:28,949
kind of lack of profitability I wasn’t

13
00:00:26,310 –> 00:00:31,109
making any money off of it at all and so

14
00:00:28,949 –> 00:00:32,189
I talked about it in other videos and I

15
00:00:31,109 –> 00:00:35,130
was like I don’t know what I’m going to

16
00:00:32,189 –> 00:00:37,829
do and I finally know what I’m going to

17
00:00:35,130 –> 00:00:40,710
do and that is I am reordering I’m going

18
00:00:37,829 –> 00:00:43,140
all-in I guess on another 250 order unit

19
00:00:40,710 –> 00:00:44,730
of product 1 and this one is going to be

20
00:00:43,140 –> 00:00:46,950
successful and it’s going to make me

21
00:00:44,730 –> 00:00:49,590
money and I have the numbers to back

22
00:00:46,950 –> 00:00:50,940
that up I know why and that’s what I’m

23
00:00:49,590 –> 00:00:53,579
going to share with you today so as I

24
00:00:50,940 –> 00:00:56,520
mentioned before product 1 I was selling

25
00:00:53,579 –> 00:00:58,920
at $24.99 and when I first launched I

26
00:00:56,520 –> 00:01:00,739
was selling quite a bit and then it just

27
00:00:58,920 –> 00:01:03,329
kind of was tapering off that I was

28
00:01:00,739 –> 00:01:05,970
averaging between 1 and 3 sales a day

29
00:01:03,329 –> 00:01:09,689
really more like two or three a day at

30
00:01:05,970 –> 00:01:11,490
that $24.99 price point however was PBC

31
00:01:09,689 –> 00:01:13,920
and with the cost of goods and all that

32
00:01:11,490 –> 00:01:15,840
stuff I was really making very little

33
00:01:13,920 –> 00:01:18,210
money probably less than two dollars a

34
00:01:15,840 –> 00:01:20,159
unit depending on what my PPC spent had

35
00:01:18,210 –> 00:01:22,020
been for the day and I was like this is

36
00:01:20,159 –> 00:01:24,210
crazy I mean because it is crazy right

37
00:01:22,020 –> 00:01:27,659
like you don’t go in business to make $2

38
00:01:24,210 –> 00:01:29,610
$4 a day and so I was like this isn’t

39
00:01:27,659 –> 00:01:31,140
working I don’t think that I’m going to

40
00:01:29,610 –> 00:01:33,329
do 4 with this I think I’m just going to

41
00:01:31,140 –> 00:01:34,770
say this was not a success and go do

42
00:01:33,329 –> 00:01:36,299
something else then I got the

43
00:01:34,770 –> 00:01:37,979
opportunity to shop with Scott bulk

44
00:01:36,299 –> 00:01:39,960
we’re on this podcast which is really

45
00:01:37,979 –> 00:01:42,210
cool somehow I worked my way into a free

46
00:01:39,960 –> 00:01:43,649
coaching call with him and he was like

47
00:01:42,210 –> 00:01:46,920
you know I really think that you can do

48
00:01:43,649 –> 00:01:47,970
some stuff to lower your cost and if

49
00:01:46,920 –> 00:01:49,950
you’re already selling and you’ve

50
00:01:47,970 –> 00:01:53,009
already invested in getting photography

51
00:01:49,950 –> 00:01:55,380
in UPC code and all that stuff and you

52
00:01:53,009 –> 00:01:56,009
can probably turn this around and I was

53
00:01:55,380 –> 00:01:58,890
like yeah okay

54
00:01:56,009 –> 00:02:00,479
I really just thought I was humoring him

55
00:01:58,890 –> 00:02:02,790
a little bit but like there’s no way

56
00:02:00,479 –> 00:02:06,049
like you don’t know my life come on but

57
00:02:02,790 –> 00:02:08,729
what I did was I contacted some shipping

58
00:02:06,049 –> 00:02:11,039
companies from freight forwarders that’s

59
00:02:08,729 –> 00:02:12,400
the word I was looking for and I got a

60
00:02:11,039 –> 00:02:17,170
quote back and I

61
00:02:12,400 –> 00:02:20,140
save $700 plus on shipping those 250

62
00:02:17,170 –> 00:02:21,849
units and and that’s she C shipping I

63
00:02:20,140 –> 00:02:23,530
love you a little bit more for air

64
00:02:21,849 –> 00:02:24,939
shipping I’m still waiting on that final

65
00:02:23,530 –> 00:02:26,470
quote but they said it was going to be

66
00:02:24,939 –> 00:02:29,290
pretty competitive so we’ll see I’m

67
00:02:26,470 –> 00:02:31,390
excited about that I also contacted my

68
00:02:29,290 –> 00:02:34,359
supplier and asked for a discount on

69
00:02:31,390 –> 00:02:37,450
pricing they said that because I wasn’t

70
00:02:34,359 –> 00:02:39,760
ordering more it’s a higher moq to get a

71
00:02:37,450 –> 00:02:41,590
lower rate I’m not ready to invest that

72
00:02:39,760 –> 00:02:44,079
much money if you’re like $8,000 in

73
00:02:41,590 –> 00:02:46,389
product costs I’m not really ready to do

74
00:02:44,079 –> 00:02:48,670
that yet but you know we are working

75
00:02:46,389 –> 00:02:51,129
towards I know what my next goal is to

76
00:02:48,670 –> 00:02:52,930
be able to get lower cost on on the

77
00:02:51,129 –> 00:02:54,670
products so this is exciting this is all

78
00:02:52,930 –> 00:02:58,030
good stuff turns out there is money to

79
00:02:54,670 –> 00:02:59,650
be made or saved in this case selling so

80
00:02:58,030 –> 00:03:02,739
now the next shipment if I sold it

81
00:02:59,650 –> 00:03:04,329
$24.99 I know I could make a profit

82
00:03:02,739 –> 00:03:05,790
that’s pretty exciting I probably get

83
00:03:04,329 –> 00:03:08,620
out more around five dollars a unit

84
00:03:05,790 –> 00:03:09,489
which isn’t that pretty I would be

85
00:03:08,620 –> 00:03:11,379
pretty happy with that

86
00:03:09,489 –> 00:03:14,500
but let me tell you I am really excited

87
00:03:11,379 –> 00:03:17,319
about ordering products one again as I

88
00:03:14,500 –> 00:03:19,090
was getting lower in inventory I’ve

89
00:03:17,319 –> 00:03:22,810
raised my rate I raised my rate from

90
00:03:19,090 –> 00:03:26,739
$24.99 to $29.99 which is absolutely

91
00:03:22,810 –> 00:03:27,970
like top a market for this product and I

92
00:03:26,739 –> 00:03:29,409
was like you know it’s going to slow

93
00:03:27,970 –> 00:03:32,290
down I’m probably only going to sell one

94
00:03:29,409 –> 00:03:34,030
every day or so but who cares not making

95
00:03:32,290 –> 00:03:36,459
money anyway and least that way I’ll

96
00:03:34,030 –> 00:03:37,750
make a little bit of money and I will go

97
00:03:36,459 –> 00:03:40,540
out of stock before I give this

98
00:03:37,750 –> 00:03:43,269
opportunity to order and more funny

99
00:03:40,540 –> 00:03:45,879
thing happened myself looks doubled so I

100
00:03:43,269 –> 00:03:49,209
went from selling about one to three a

101
00:03:45,879 –> 00:03:52,629
day at $24.99 to throw in four to eight

102
00:03:49,209 –> 00:03:54,069
a day at $29.99 that’s more than

103
00:03:52,629 –> 00:03:56,260
doubling but you get my point

104
00:03:54,069 –> 00:03:59,590
I was shocked so now not only do I know

105
00:03:56,260 –> 00:04:02,620
at $24.99 I can make it okay profit

106
00:03:59,590 –> 00:04:04,569
selling this product but at $29.99 I can

107
00:04:02,620 –> 00:04:08,049
make a better product and potentially

108
00:04:04,569 –> 00:04:09,849
sell way more sign me up that was the

109
00:04:08,049 –> 00:04:12,310
happiest accident I think I’ve ever had

110
00:04:09,849 –> 00:04:14,799
so but here’s the problem right I raised

111
00:04:12,310 –> 00:04:16,389
my price so I wouldn’t go out of stock

112
00:04:14,799 –> 00:04:18,639
and now I’m selling faster than I’ve

113
00:04:16,389 –> 00:04:22,650
ever sold before so I’ve raised my price

114
00:04:18,639 –> 00:04:25,949
again from 34 sorry from $29.99

115
00:04:22,650 –> 00:04:27,930
to $34.99 and sales dropped but they

116
00:04:25,949 –> 00:04:30,870
went down to the same rate I was selling

117
00:04:27,930 –> 00:04:33,120
at $24.99 I’m back into that 1 2 3 sales

118
00:04:30,870 –> 00:04:36,030
range rate and I’m like I can’t even

119
00:04:33,120 –> 00:04:39,210
believe so you’re telling me for the

120
00:04:36,030 –> 00:04:41,550
first 175 units I could have been

121
00:04:39,210 –> 00:04:44,520
selling them at the same velocity sing

122
00:04:41,550 –> 00:04:47,280
sales velocity for $10 profit more I

123
00:04:44,520 –> 00:04:49,800
mean that now I’m making even with my

124
00:04:47,280 –> 00:04:54,270
high cost – good 12 dollars and five

125
00:04:49,800 –> 00:04:56,460
cents a unit profit much so hey guys

126
00:04:54,270 –> 00:04:59,430
here’s the cake away tester price

127
00:04:56,460 –> 00:05:02,070
because you don’t know where you’re you

128
00:04:59,430 –> 00:05:03,810
know your sales of your profit curve is

129
00:05:02,070 –> 00:05:06,210
going to peak out because my peaked out

130
00:05:03,810 –> 00:05:08,639
at $29.99 and I never would have guessed

131
00:05:06,210 –> 00:05:11,970
that for my first 250 units that I saw

132
00:05:08,639 –> 00:05:13,830
I’ve had very low PPC spent I’ve got it

133
00:05:11,970 –> 00:05:15,810
started that I have not spent a lot of

134
00:05:13,830 –> 00:05:17,400
money on it I think five dollars a day

135
00:05:15,810 –> 00:05:19,979
would be like the absolute most I’ve

136
00:05:17,400 –> 00:05:22,620
spent so far I also did no outside

137
00:05:19,979 –> 00:05:24,599
marketing I had nothing outside driving

138
00:05:22,620 –> 00:05:26,970
sale to Amazon’s with read people to buy

139
00:05:24,599 –> 00:05:28,830
my product and then finally I had no

140
00:05:26,970 –> 00:05:31,020
giveaway I have mentioned in the past

141
00:05:28,830 –> 00:05:33,419
also the giveaways just never really

142
00:05:31,020 –> 00:05:36,120
appealed to me that much I really never

143
00:05:33,419 –> 00:05:39,539
wanted to play that game I did talk with

144
00:05:36,120 –> 00:05:40,979
this guy who runs fetcher which is in

145
00:05:39,539 –> 00:05:42,720
partnership with jumbo Scout and he was

146
00:05:40,979 –> 00:05:44,940
like you know if you gave away like 25

147
00:05:42,720 –> 00:05:47,639
units five a day for five days that

148
00:05:44,940 –> 00:05:49,560
could really bump your VSR you probably

149
00:05:47,639 –> 00:05:51,930
really surprised at how many fields you

150
00:05:49,560 –> 00:05:54,510
started to get just from doing that so

151
00:05:51,930 –> 00:05:56,280
it’s something I am considering and

152
00:05:54,510 –> 00:05:58,110
still just it’s not excited about it

153
00:05:56,280 –> 00:06:00,630
it’s still not excited about just giving

154
00:05:58,110 –> 00:06:02,250
away product but if you can spend a

155
00:06:00,630 –> 00:06:03,659
little money to make a lot of money then

156
00:06:02,250 –> 00:06:05,460
that’s a trade that we should always

157
00:06:03,659 –> 00:06:07,919
make so the other thing that I did not

158
00:06:05,460 –> 00:06:09,960
do on the very first unit if you order

159
00:06:07,919 –> 00:06:13,020
or shipment now I have some other areas

160
00:06:09,960 –> 00:06:15,360
that I know I can improve in order to

161
00:06:13,020 –> 00:06:18,599
probably sell at a higher sell

162
00:06:15,360 –> 00:06:20,280
philosophy right lower my BSR that would

163
00:06:18,599 –> 00:06:22,260
be adding more pictures right now I only

164
00:06:20,280 –> 00:06:24,060
have studio photos I don’t have any

165
00:06:22,260 –> 00:06:26,220
lifestyle pictures and I always hear

166
00:06:24,060 –> 00:06:28,199
that people really like lifestyle

167
00:06:26,220 –> 00:06:29,970
pictures another thing is I could do

168
00:06:28,199 –> 00:06:31,770
giveaways if I choose to do that and

169
00:06:29,970 –> 00:06:33,660
then the last thing would be the

170
00:06:31,770 –> 00:06:35,669
hence brand content I don’t have that

171
00:06:33,660 –> 00:06:38,400
currently only available through brand

172
00:06:35,669 –> 00:06:40,349
register which I were working on but

173
00:06:38,400 –> 00:06:42,240
it’s a longer process now we need to get

174
00:06:40,349 –> 00:06:44,909
trademark we’ll talk about that in

175
00:06:42,240 –> 00:06:46,440
another video but I looking at that

176
00:06:44,909 –> 00:06:47,970
enhance brain content because a lot of

177
00:06:46,440 –> 00:06:49,860
my competitors have that that’s just

178
00:06:47,970 –> 00:06:51,509
something else that I note will only

179
00:06:49,860 –> 00:06:53,310
help it certainly is not going to hurt

180
00:06:51,509 –> 00:06:54,690
so we’re going to work towards that also

181
00:06:53,310 –> 00:06:57,330
I guess in the end of the day I was just

182
00:06:54,690 –> 00:06:58,860
like Megan this is a good product and

183
00:06:57,330 –> 00:07:01,530
it’s selling with you basically doing

184
00:06:58,860 –> 00:07:03,360
nothing with it so if we put a little

185
00:07:01,530 –> 00:07:05,400
effort into it we can probably sell a

186
00:07:03,360 –> 00:07:08,340
lot more and that’s what I’ve decided to

187
00:07:05,400 –> 00:07:10,199
do is really focus on making product one

188
00:07:08,340 –> 00:07:11,190
is success and I will tell you that

189
00:07:10,199 –> 00:07:13,800
there are some of you guys in the

190
00:07:11,190 –> 00:07:17,069
comment section that kind of kicked my

191
00:07:13,800 –> 00:07:18,659
butt on me wanting to just drop it and

192
00:07:17,069 –> 00:07:20,310
move on to the next product and not

193
00:07:18,659 –> 00:07:22,199
really taking time to figure out what

194
00:07:20,310 –> 00:07:24,690
was wrong what I did wrong with the

195
00:07:22,199 –> 00:07:26,159
first product so thank you guys so much

196
00:07:24,690 –> 00:07:28,229
for being that support and that

197
00:07:26,159 –> 00:07:29,729
accountability for me I couldn’t do it

198
00:07:28,229 –> 00:07:31,530
without you do you have any questions

199
00:07:29,729 –> 00:07:33,479
about anything I didn’t cover here about

200
00:07:31,530 –> 00:07:36,180
how it ultimately came to the decision

201
00:07:33,479 –> 00:07:37,110
to stick with product one reorder and go

202
00:07:36,180 –> 00:07:38,940
all in on it

203
00:07:37,110 –> 00:07:40,560
leave those down in the comment section

204
00:07:38,940 –> 00:07:42,300
below I will certainly be checking in

205
00:07:40,560 –> 00:07:43,620

206
00:07:42,300 –> 00:07:46,409
