Section 5 Intro

In this video I discuss why wholesaling products from Alibaba in China is a much better option than wholesaling in the U.S. The main reason Alibaba is better is because of the lower MOQ (minimum order quantity) and lower per-unit cost.

00:12 Why Alibaba
01:21 Why Not American Wholesalers
Why Use Alibaba to Find Your Products

In this lecture I walk you through finding profitable products by comparing products from Alibaba and Ebay using the completed listing tool. I also recommend using an Excel template to organize your product ideas which is available to download as a supplement to this lecture.

How to Find Profitable Products

This video explains what to do next once you have find a profitable item to sell. In this video we use the example of 'tungsten rings' and go over how to find different wholesalers and how to start communicating with them.

How to Find Great Wholesalers

In this video we will review what a typical wholesaler email response will be. We then talk about what information is most important to look for in a wholesaler email. We do this through example by narrowing down three potential wholesalers to one that is the best fit for what we are looking for.

Lastly we discuss what to send in an email reply back to the wholesaler if we are interested in ordering a sample from them.

Responding to Wholesaler Messages

In this video we calculate the profit margin of a product we are considering selling on Ebay. We choose a wooden tungsten ring from our supplier's price list and use Ebay's completed listing tool to make an educated guess as to what our final selling price will be.

We then input our final price estimate, cost per unit, $2 postal fee and $1.50 shipping supplies fee into the profit margin calculator to discover our true profit margin.

Profit Margin Example

In this video I talk about how to communicate with wholesalers on Alibaba.

Important things to keep in mind are:

  • Be as clear as possible
  • It doesn't hurt to ask
  • Think about your audience
  • Get to email as quickly as possible

I then walk you through sending your first message to a wholesaler on Alibaba.

Is Society's New Way of Learning Giving You "Information Overload Hangovers?"

Trying to learn anything in today's world looks easy.

With one Google search you can find unlimited information about anything you want.

It sounds great, and in many ways it is. But man does it get tiring! 

Too many options makes you think that there is always something better out there. 

You want to learn how teach an online course? Great! Let the fun begin..

Do you read the 10+ articles on Google? Do you watch the most viewed videos on Youtube? Or do you take an online course about how to create an online course?

You say, "I want to learn from this online course!"

The promotional video and the reviews get you excited. 

"Everyone is talking about how amazing this course is!" They say, "After this, you'll find creating online courses incredibly easy."

You got your notepad and pen ready. You wait until your fresh in the morning to start. On your desk is a warm cup of coffee. You're ready to dive in.

You play that first video and WOAH! You start learning all of these valuable nuggets of information. 

The notebook is quickly filling up with notes. You have a secret urge to share what your learning with someone you know. 

It's so fascinating!

Learning Information can be Addicting 

In the moment, it makes you feel like you're growing. Like anything is possible.

But, just like a heavy night of drinking, information overload gives you a crippling hangover. 

After you have a notebook filled with pages and pages of notes, you feel lost. 

When the course, the video, the blog post is over, it makes you ask yourself: what's next? 

At this point we tell ourselves, "I just have to learn more!"

Sound familiar?

I call it: The Information Hamster Wheel

It's time to step off the hamster wheel. Real growth happens when we take action on when we learn.

We don't truly grow or learn anything until we do it ourselves! That is why you always hear people say, Action is the Best Teacher

But we know this already...

And yet we don't take Action. All of this incredible information is not turning into anything real. 

And we know we should be taking action. But for some strange reason, we can't.

-We have no idea where to start

-We look at all of the people that are successful doing what we want to do ("I can never do that")

-We get distracted 

-We decide we need to learn more first

Why Does Taking Action Feel Like Your Alone in a Dark Cave?

Learning any new skill is like walking through a dark cave. On your own it is new, hard to see and scary.

When your taking an online course, you are guided by someone with a flashlight. They are saying, "I know the way. Come follow me!" 

They walk you through the cave and show you all of the amazing scenery and sights. 

Once the course, the video, the blog post is over your guide has left. It is just you in the dark cave now, alone. 

You pull out the flashlight app on your phone. The tiny light helps you see the edges of the cave, but you can hardly see anything. 

The fearful thoughts begin to enter your mind, "I'm in way over my head," "I can't do this," "I should stick to something I already know how to do well."

Okay, enough with the cave. 

You need a guide that leads you through taking Action! 

Someone that will tell you, step-by-step, exactly what to do. 

Someone that will call you out if you're not taking Action. 

Someone that doesn't leave you after they 'give you' information.

Take Action-Backed Courses

My role is to be your Action guide. 

In my courses you are not going to be left in the cave alone. 

Instead you will learn the important information and then I will walk you through the actions. 

In each of my action-backed videos I give you 1 task to complete and then show you EXACTLY how to complete that task.

By the end of my course you will not have another notebook full of notes. Instead you will have taken Action and accomplished the course goal.
