Everyone is always asking me for step-by-step guides as if that will make them successful.
There is no step-by-step guide that will take you from where you are to where you want to be.
That is because unlike the traditional route of get good grades, go to a good college, get a good job, and retire rich, there are no guarantees for those who want to be successful.
In fact, the only thing that is guaranteed if you follow that path is a mediocre existence.
This blog is for winners who want to get filthy rich by any means necessary.
Those who cannot be satisfied living in mediocrity and want to take destiny into their own hands.
The winners, the killers who are willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals.
Those who embrace the mentality of get rich or die trying.
That being said, this website has a lot of content and will continue to be the ultimate resource online for going from broke to filthy rich.
Inside the archives of this website lie the codes to getting rich selling on Amazon.
As I continue to grow and succeed in new ventures, this website will also evolve with me, and I will continue to teach you how to win and get rich in a wide range of methods.
Whether it is via real estate, cryptocurrency, wholesale, online arbitrage or content creation, we are going to get rich or die trying.
I have decided to organize the codes into a series of steps that you can take in order to get rich selling on Amazon.
It is up to you to take action.
The steps alone do nothing.
I guarantee that if you do everything I laid out, you will achieve your goals.
If you do not get the success you are looking for, it is because you did not do whatever it takes to win.
Take my advice and win.
Read every blog post multiple times if you have to.
Get obsessed and become the best.
Internalize the mindsets required to win, if you’re serious about making things happen.
I’ve told you how to win, and there is no question about it.
If any important information is missing, it will be added.
Respect the process, put in the dues and you will get results.
Try to take shortcuts, and end up exactly where you are.
There is no in between.
Step 1: Learn
Read the entire Archives of this blog.
Don’t ask me bullshit questions until you at least read the required reading:
Examples of bullshit questions:
- “What should I name my store?”
- “How do I create an Amazon seller account? I will pay you to help me.”
- “I can’t find products that I’m not ungated in, I’m so discouraged and I want to quit. What should I do?”
- “Teach me.”
Examples of intelligent questions:
- “I read your Seller Amp sourcing guide and had a question about this particular ASIN I found while scanning in the store…”
- “I’ve generated $5K in sales after taking action reading your blog, how do you recommend I double that and scale up?”
- “I received an IP complaint after selling this particular brand, how can I get rid of it and prevent this from happening again in the future?”
- “Can you write a blog article about this topic?”
Step 2: Get the Amazon Seller App (Free)
First, you will have to create an Amazon Seller account.
DO NOT CREATE TWO AMAZON ACCOUNTS. YOU WILL GET BANNED.
If you already have an Amazon account, use that same login to create your seller account.
After you sign up, you will have to go through a verification process.
They will send you a postcard in the mail and conduct a virtual interview simply to prove your identity.
It is not an interview where they will ask you a bunch of questions to see if you are qualified to become an Amazon seller. They will simply ask you to show them your drivers license or other form of identification and confirm that it is in fact you.
Will I help you get your Amazon account set up? No.
This is the easiest and most straight-forward process in the world and if you cannot do this, you should not be trying to start an Amazon business. A certain level of intelligence is required to sell on Amazon because you are starting a real business.
This isn’t some bullshit 4-hour workweek, passive income get-rich-quick scheme.
If this is too hard, go get a job at McDonalds instead.
Step 4: Get software
Seller Amp (Affiliate)
Step 5: Get Ungated
Download my Auto Ungate ASINS list to get ungated in 350+ brands to get you up and running.
Next, if you want to get ungated in a particular brand you can try out some of these suppliers who provide invoices.
Read my Ungating Guide to learn how to submit invoices and how to submit documentation.
Note: Amazon can do whatever they want. Sometimes they accept retail receipts. Other times, they do not even accept formal invoices. You will have to do your own research and search for anecdotal reports from other people who have gotten ungated in the brands you want. I’ve found that during Q4, they tighten up on ungating significantly and people have trouble getting ungated even with an actual invoice. In that case, you’ll want to focus on brands that you can get auto-ungated in and go hard on those.
Step 6: Scale Using Credit
Read my AMZ Credit Card Guide to learn how to leverage debt to get richer using credit cards. Only do this after you can consistently generate profit and are confident in your sourcing ability. Do not be a greedy moron who ends up in debt because they wanted to get rich tomorrow. Put in the dues, master your craft and proceed with caution. You must absolutely know how to read Keepa and analyze Seller Amp, which you can learn in my Seller Amp Sourcing Guide.
Step 7: Manage Your Business
You will need to learn about taxes. Read the following articles.
You will need to reprice your listings. Read the following articles.
You will need to manage your shipments and learn how to get reimbursed from Amazon. Read the following articles.
