Amazon Fulfillment

What Amazon Fulfillment Is And It’s Business Opportunity?

This to me is the perfect time for me to talk about how you never want to follow what the masses are doing.
By now you have probably noticed that all the Amazon FBA Gurus out there seem to pushing the same get-rich-quick programs. As we have seen time and time again it’s safe to say that we will start seeing many people selling the same product and using the same techniques and strategy’s as everyone else.
As of right now the current trend everyone is using is private labeling, using Amazon FBA. I will outline the common process in this courses here:
Step one is to identify a high-selling products using BSR (best seller rank), after this you want to check the competitiveness of other players in this niche by looking at the number of reviews.
Step two is to really think about only consider selling products which are lightweight and very easy to ship, not breakable, keep it within a certain price range, and that has mass-market appeal.
Step three is to find a manufacturer in China using Alibaba. One doesn’t have to invent a brand new product, all you need to do is make some small changes to an existing product that is already out, make sure you change the color, as to ‘differentiate’ your product.
Step four is to simply import and sell the product via FBA.
I am giving you the simplified version of this process, but I will outline the process that most people are following at this time and getting excellent results from.

So why not think outside the box and try things that others are not doing with Amazon Fulfillment?

-Instead of just looking for products in Chinese factories on the perversely mentioned Alibaba, why not start looking else where for manufacturing of your product. By doing this you can have them make you something different that hasn’t been seen before. Also, at the same time not have to worry about having your idea/product ripped off by a Chinese manufacturer.
-Instead of only looking for smaller and light products, why not also look for some larger more heavier products that might be a little more tricky to ship. Of course these products can be more profitable, but most other people are very reluctant to sell them.
-Remember if you have the time and the drive you can create your very own product and cut out the manufacturing cost completely.
-Don’t just look at mass products, meaning you don’t have chose a product that is used by millions of people in order to make money. One can start looking at UN-sexy niches like industrial products or even medical goods. I know for a fact most people don’t even consider using a private label product to sell. But those are the billion dollar inches with very low price elasticity.
People ask me all the time if there is a Amazon Fulfillment gold rush? Of Course. They are the sellers who are creating basic, “products” but they are creating private label products using the same methodology as everyone else but most are very unlikely to have a sustainable business in a few years.
This is even more of a reason to follow your own path. If you are actually contribute something valuable by creating your own product and adding it unto the market place, people will respond better to your offer.

Amazon Fulfillment As A Business

In 2015 Amazon hit the 30 billion mark in sales. After Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday last year over $4.74 billion was made off of Amazon. So, it’s a no brainier that every retailer is doing there best to establish their presence there.
It’s very possible to make anywhere between a few thousand dollars a month selling one product on Amazon. I will explain how one can achieve this so keep reading.
Now you might be asking yourself, yes it may relatively easy for an established retailer to make money selling on Amazon? So, how much can I, someone just starting out, make per month?
Well, if you take look at the data from peoples earnings over the 2015 period, you’ll see that it’s possible to make anywhere between $1,000 a month to $10,000 or more a month.
You Can Make $1,000 a Month Importing Products from China
The best way to earn a decent income would be to import products from China at a discounted price and resell them on Amazon. Getting started, you would first need to do a search for a product that is selling well, I would recommend not selling electronic products because the have a less likely chance of selling on Amazon. It’s best to look for lightweight (To help save on shipping) make sure you keep the price between $10 and $200.
After deciding on one or more products you found profitable and would like to sell, next it’s time to start researching for suppliers. I have found the best way to do this is through Alibaba for contacting Chinese suppliers. Use Alibaba to send out messages to all the vendors at one time, who fit your diaphragmatic. As a tip consider only work with Alibaba Gold Suppliers, as they tend to be more trustworthy from there long term relationship with Alibaba.
You have your products, and you have a list of suppliers. Now it’s time to start shipping and get down to business.

How to fix a hot water system

Have you run your bath water only to realise its ice cold? Have you jumped in the shower and been sprayed by cold water? If so, chances are you have a problem with your homes hot water system. Don’t stress, there are a few basic things you can try yourself prior to calling a plumber.  If you have a natural or propane gas water system, chances are the pilot has gone out. The pilot is a small flame that ignites the gas burner on your system. When it goes out, first try relighting it, following the directions on the label, which is often on the front of the system. If the pilot doesn't relight, or if it goes out right after lighting, by far the most common cause is a broken thermocouple. The good news: you can usually replace a thermocouple for minimal cost and in less than an hour from a local hardware. You'll get your hot water going without waiting for a pro to show up and save a few dollars!

To replace the thermocouple, be sure to turn off the shutoff valve in the gas line; that is, one quarter turn so that the handle is at a right angle to the pipe. Since working room is tight around the burner, we recommend that you simply unscrew the three nuts at the control valve and pull out the entire burner assembly unit. You'll see either a slot or clips that hold it in its place. Then either unscrew the thermocouple end or pull it out (depending on the water heater) and take it with you to hardware store to find a match. Position it exactly the same way as the old one. The pilot flame should wrap around the thermocouple bulb.

To reattach the three lines to the gas valve, thread the nuts into place with your fingers and hand-tighten them properly. Then snug them up with a quarter to half revolution with a wrench. The metals are soft, so don't over tighten as they will break.

Be sure to test for gas leaks. You must have the pilot lit and the burner on for this test so that gas is flowing through the large tube on the system. Reopen the shutoff valve, relight the pilot, then turn the control valve to the “on” position. When the gas burner is on, use a 50/50 dish soap/water mix to test the screw joints for air bubbles that indicate leaks.
If you have an issue with a blocked drain Perth or hot water system Perth, then you need a 24 hour plumber Perth or an emergency plumber Perth to service you. You might also reach out to a gas plumber Perth to help you. Its important that you have a plumber Perth or a Perth Plumber you can trust.

Reasons For A Running Toilet

Have you ever wondered why you have a running toilet? Firstly, it is important that you acknowledge the fact that every hand made device is always bound to break and this is no exception with your toilet. Therefore, in case you realize that your toilet is running, you should never be worried at all; instead, simply take some time and figure out why is running out, and then consider repairing it. 
For you establish the main cause of the problem in your toilet, it is paramount to remove the top tank of the toilet and place on a secure location. Try pushing the toilet’s flush lever and examines what happens. 
On many occasions, one will be in agreement with the fact that one of the reasons why the toilet runs is simply because one or all of the following has/have problems. 
·      Tank ball
·      Ball cork
·      Intake valve and/or
·      Float ball
Having identified the reason why your toilet is running, it is then important to think of a way of repairing it. So how do you fix a running toilet?
There are complicated aspects in the toilet repair that inexperienced cannot handle. Therefore, consider hiring experienced personnel first. 
Check if the spare parts in the toilet tank require any replacement or just repair. It is important to note that different people use various mechanisms. However, all these normally lead to the same answers. 
Try checking if the chain is in contact with the flapper. It is important to thread the flapper chain using a plastic straw as this prevents long chain from sticking on things. Complete replacement of the chain is another remedy for this. You can achieve this by using a dental floss made loop having a similar length to the chain.
Also, it is important to ensure that the water is filled to the water line as lack of water is what basically makes the toilet to run.
Another tip for fixing the running problem is through adjusting the float and valve. By using your hands, you can pulp up the float. If the action stops the water flow, it is advisable to adjust the float level in order for the tank to stop filling having attained the required amount of water flow, slightly below overflow tube top. 

Finally, ensure that the flapper is well cleaned to prevent a repeat of the running. Dirty flappers have always been blamed for the leaking of the toilets. This should then be followed by troubleshooting any other problem in your toilet in order to function normally.
