So why the deduction? I ran a promo for product number 2 and that of course wasn’t a part of what info I gave others to help them decide on my sales estimates for the contest, so it gets deducted to be fair.

So I will be tagging the winner in a Facebook post shortly, that Amazon gift card is on it’s way!!

How To Evaluate Competition

Want to know what you’re getting into before you invest in your private label product (duh! Of course, Ry)? Okay dumb question, so here’s how I do it.

1. I determine the search results in ALL categories.

2. I see what kinds of imagery both visual and textual listings have to offer.

3. I check out the reviews and ask myself how realistic is getting more reviews than the top listing(s).

4. Leave me a comment below so I can know how ya like 1, 2, & 3. Step 4 is super important! lol

Super simple 🙂 Check out the video for more details & don’t forget to subscribe to the right for more cool tips, tricks, and live Hangout sessions:

Episode 1: Intro

Play

In my first podcast (please forgive the quality), I briefly share with you who I am and what I hope you’ll gain from my podcast:

  • My counterfeit days (yep, I bent and broke some rules in my teens and early 20s)
  • How I began my entrepreneurial journey at the age of 6
  • Why I’ll never forget my first lesson in competition. Hint, it involves high school, candy, and me never reducing my price of goods
  • And more…

Latest Sales Since Being Back In Stock (Feb)

Guess who’s back in stock (points to self and smiles)??

It’s been what seems like forever but I’ve finally gotten back into stock as of Jan. 30th.

incomeHere are sales from that date, so about 4 days. At this rate, I should do close to $5K, if not more in February. Why more? Because, I’m averaging about 5 sales per day now, but as I sell more and my ranking increases, sales should too.

So here’s what I’ll do to add a little fun. I will give the person who comments with the closest sales estimate for Feb. 28th 12PM EST a $75 Amazon gift card.

So subscribe to the blog to the right for updates and stay tuned for my final update and announcement of the winner.

To win:

*Must have a valid email to receive Amazon gift card
*Must comment below via Facebook or WordPress
*Must comment dollar amount in sales.
*Only 1 comment per entry per person (ask a friend to comment on your behalf)
