Hope everything’s going well on your end!

Apologies for the slight delay in this week’s email – it’s been a hectic one.

I’ve been diving into the world of Crypto (the bull market’s back, folks!) and refining the new PODtomatic.

Remember how I mentioned focusing more on FBM over FBA this year? Well, it’s paying off.

Today, I bagged an order for 45 coffee mugs, raking in $819.45 in sales!

After factoring in Amazon fees, that’s roughly $652 in my pocket.

This time, I went with Printify for making and shipping the mugs, as the shipping costs were lower.

The grand total for 45 coffee mugs and shipping was around $338.

That leaves me with a profit of about $300 from just one FBM coffee mug – not too shabby, huh?

The design on this one?

Just a simple text design with Arial font, centered…

But here’s the kicker: it’s a micro-niche product, not your typical “Mom,” “Dad,” “Son,” or “Daughter” niche.

It’s a niche within a niche, and the competition is low.

And that’s the beauty of FBM – you can pull in significant revenue without relying on FBA.

Of course, FBA has its perks too, but it just doesn’t fit my style.

Here’s my FBM strategy in a nutshell:

  • List loads of products across various niches.
  • Whenever a product sells, I fine-tune the title, description, bullet points, and keywords using Jesse PODMan.
  • Always add more relevant keywords to the selling products.

Simple, right? But yes, it does take time to achieve consistent sales.

You need a diverse range of selling products across different niches.

Personally, I’m seeing consistent sales because I’ve got around 200,000 products in my Amazon account.

And I’ve optimized listings for about 600 products since last year.

(I could’ve made even more sales if I’d started optimizing sooner.)

It’s simple yet challenging. Resilience is key.

Keep uploading new products daily.

That wraps up my FBM strategy for now.

I’ll be back with more updates next week.

Now, it’s time for me to dive back into some crypto news.

Talk soon,

P.S. My team just shared some updates about the new PODtomatic.

We’re testing its capability to create and upload 200 products/day to Amazon. It’s functioning well, so we’ll be moving it to the production server this week.

Here’s a sneak peek.

Hopefully, we can add our members to the new PODtomatic soon!
