I told my brothers ‘if it comes from Jim Cockrum or his crew… you can trust it!!! I completed your coaching which was amazing… I’m already seeing profits in my FBA business of around $400 month. And it’s been only 3 months. I am now using profits to source more products and no longer need to pull from my paycheck.

These ads can be customized with different overlay text and CTAs and viewers usually have the option to skip the ad after watching the first five seconds.

“Karen and I have been selling on Amazon for the past four years and doing pretty well, but once I adopted the methods used in this course and moved my inventory to FBA our sales more than doubled and now equal our sales on eBay. A few weeks ago we went to Las Vegas for a trade show. In the past I would have to take down my eBay listings and suspend my Amazon listings since we would not be there to ship our goods. Now, I use FBA to fulfill both our eBay and Amazon sales. The little bit I pay in extra fees is made up by the savings in boxes and packing material and the discounted shipping rates I get from Amazon.” — Skip McGrath- mcgrrrrr on eBay and Summerdale_House on Amazon

Before migrating our lists over to GetResponse, Mailchimp was our go-to tool for creating newsletters and autoresponders. Our decision to move away from Mailchimp was primarily due to them enforcing subscribers to double opt-in (which was reducing our list size by about 15%), and the fact that we could do virtually everything we needed in GetResponse for almost half the price.
