This site is intended as a resource for anyone who is:
- based outside the USA or bringing a product from overseas into the USA
- interested in creating their own physical product; and
- selling it to the US market...
- ...using Amazon.com
- with options to expand to a full e-commerce business and global brand if you want to
Is that you? Great! You have come to the right place!
On this site you will find all the basic information you need to get started and if you are serious about it you can join the BRAND CENTRAL COMMERCE Community and take advantage of all the coaching materials and case studies that we have created to help you break through all the obstacles and get started.
But much more than this! You will gain access to people like you who are getting started and looking to grow their own business. People who have faced the same questions and who can share their own experiences.
What people often think to themselves when they see a site like this (and I am one of those people) is that if the advice was all that good then I would not be telling people but would just be doing it myself. Yeah sure but it still takes a while to replicate each time and even though I am doing it myself there are only so many products I can be passionate about. It's not like anyone with a successful website just keeps building more and more websites.! Eventually you feel compelled to share what you do.
the other thing is...people ask all the time! All the time! And I spend lots of time telling people. So it makes sense to put everything I know in one spot.
And finally, I got asked to help other people make their courses too. And once a guru like Ezra Firestone of SmartMarketer.com is asking you how you do stuff and to help him tell other people in his paid course - and when you do it once for Brown Box Formula and it's so popular he asks you to do it again for Channelizer Method, you kind of think - hey maybe I should start taking this training thing a bit more seriously!
Maybe this should be its own course for people just like me who want to use a low risk, inexpensive method to get their product available for sale in the world's biggest online retail market!
Do I know what I am doing? I have been a US Amazon seller since 2012. That year my wife and I were approached to place our product (Starlettos High Heel Protectors) in the gift bags for the Emmy Awards ceremony. At that time we had no way to capitalise on all the publicity afforded by that opportunity so we needed a way of getting our product into the USA and available to US customers. Amazon FBA was by far the easiest solution and within 28 days of accepting the opportunity we were up and running on Amazon. Our business has grown significantly since that first small step and Starlettos are now available on Amazon in the USA, Canada and Japan and throughout Europe. I have then taken all I have learned over years of selling and expanding as well as learnings from other Amazon sellers and other training courses and have distilled the very best of it into one complete, end to end course designed for people who are perhaps not as familiar with international commerce, selling in the USA and staying compliant with all the different rules and systems. In addition I include all the (not so obvious) tips and tricks I have learned, developed and implemented to take a brand new product to the very top of the best sellers lists inside Amazon and then grow that same brand outside Amazon to maintain a bullet-proof, independent and automated income stream.
And on top of that I share my own tools and resources so you can follow the exact steps I have used and fast-track the process.
...and what about when I don't know the answer? It happens from time to time - but luckily after years of doing this I now have my very own direct line into Amazon with my own dedicated consultants that have helped me with my own international expansions and if I don't know it?...I just ASK.
So where is all this good stuff?
Good news. It's right HERE! I suggest you quit thinking of reasons not to do it and dive in!
