If you sell on Amazon, you should periodically check eBay for your products. Several of our Amazon listings were copied and listed on eBay by foreign sellers. There is a process you can go through to have them removed but you have to have the identical images and/or text on your own company website to prove the listing information was stolen. This is particularly concerning to us when our products are only sold in the US for various reasons and these other sellers are offering to ship our product overseas. I’ve had four of our products removed from eBay and have found a few sellers in the Amazon forum who think it is perfectly fine to jump on your listing, inflate the prices of your branded items, and use you as a dropshipper. Not cool.

If you want to jump into the health foods market online, I recommend taking a comprehensive approach that includes your own products for sale on Amazon. Then, market these products, alongside others, with an effective affiliate marketing site. You’ll generate traffic to your own site and build your personal credibility in the space, while selling items through Amazon.
I read about this same thing happening to another seller and what he did was so awesome. He did 2 things. First he raised the price of his product really high and then ordered it from that eBay seller. He placed 10 separate orders back to back. When the eBay seller went to buy and ship the product, he found out that he actually would be losing money. He didn’t want to have a string of cancelled orders because his metrics on eBay would be bad and they would ban him. He begged the guy to cancel his orders and promised to never do that again. The other thing the seller did was switched his Amazon listing to zero units available and again, he went to that eBay seller and made multiple orders back to back. When the eBay seller went to order from the Amazon seller, there was no inventory. So ta-da! You don’t even need to bother Amazon or eBay. Just take care of it yourself just like this seller did.
You definitely forgot Thrive by Le-Vel. Premium nutritional supplement line. Weekly commission, no promoter fees, free cloud office, training at your fingertips, free customer accounts, great demand for health right now more than ever. I have never felt better in all my years as a mom. I decided to promote because of the product and how it made me feel. Though all teams within the company may not be as great as my team, it is a wonderful company! My team...we are like family. Always there for each other. I love promoting Thrive!
Online marketplaces, which include platforms like eBay, Amazon and others, are popular indirect sales channels utilized by businesses of all sizes. As a small business owner, you likely only have access to customers in your immediate vicinity. By selling through an online marketplace, you can reach a wider net of potential clients who might otherwise not know you exist. As an added bonus, using this channel can help cut down on your marketing costs.
You can buy good domain names from domain registers like GoDaddy and Namecheap, and build your portfolio of domain names. You can put up your domain names for sale at domain marketplace like Sedo. You need to research different industries and come up with good domain names that are not taken yet. You can also buy good domain names with some commercial value and resell them for higher profits.
If you don't understand what you're selling, you are going to lose a lot of sales. You won't know the best customer fit for your product, so you won't be able to do a good job of qualifying prospects. You won't know all the product's benefits, which means you'll be constantly missing chances to woo prospective customers. And if a prospect asks you a technical question, you won't know the answer... which takes away your option of presenting yourself as an expert or a consultant. Selling without product knowledge is like running a marathon with one leg tied behind your back.
A common analogy used to understand the difference between self-hosted and hosted ecommerce solutions is the difference between buying and renting a house. When you rent a house (hosted), you are tied to the wishes of the landlord. You can live there, but you probably can’t paint or make physical changes to the look and feel of the property. If the landlord decides to sell up or change the property, you could lose access or be forced to leave. The benefits of renting a house however, are that you can test the water before you decide to buy and you can change houses with minimal fuss or cost.
I am surprised not to see Thirty One on your list. I know you are hearing a lot about it locally but we are struggling to grow team members west of the Mississippi!

Don’t spend $5 on your daily smoothie when you could easily make your own every morning. The NutriBullet blender is tiny but powerful. It pulverizes tough fruits and vegetables to create a silky smooth drink in minutes. The cleanup process is usually where blenders fail, but this one rinses out quickly. Once you get it, you won’t have any more excuses to dodge breakfast or miss out on your daily quota of vitamins and minerals.
