Ann Sieg Training On Amazon Ecommerce

My name is Ann Sieg, and I began my journey doing business online about 16 years ago. It all started by helping my son sell 'Lord of the Rings' swords (of all things) on Ebay!

My son and I worked well together, and in the next few years we got involved in other businesses too... all of which we developed online.

Once a decade went by, we had sold over $20,000,000 in online and physical products. And, we created an in-depth training community that includes an online back office training system and face-to-face training workshops.

Through our programs, we've helped over 400,000 people worldwide build a business from the comfort of their own home.

Ann Sieg Dean Of Ecommerce Business School Training

In October 2013, I began to focus on the world of e-commerce. Many in our community got involved here as well... and they had great success because of the training they already received from us.

This led us to host several live event workshops... to teach all our interested members how to make money through the two largest e-commerce sites in the U.S. – eBay and Amazon.

During 2014, we started to turn our attention exclusively to Amazon. As we saw the growth of Amazon's stats – as well as their third party selling platform – we knew this was the place to be!

So, we got ourselves really busy and delivered 17 workshops with the help of our own Certified Trainers...

And we even included a sourcing trip to China!

Ann Sieg China Sourcing Ecommerce Business School Experience

Having a share in the growth of Amazon over the last few years has been incredibly exciting...

But most gratifying has been the success experienced by so many of our members...

People who struggled for years to make even a dollar online are quickly making several thousands of dollars in sales... and that's just the beginning.

Ann Sieg Meets ASD

Thanks to the all the success we were having with our e-commerce training, I was able to meet Linh Vu, the Marketing Director of ASD Source Direct.

The first contact we had went great... and when I shared with her what we had developed through our training system and workshop series, she was immediately interested... and soon we invited Linh out to one of our 3 Day Sourcing Intensives.

Linh Vu At Ecommerce Business School 3 Day Sourcing

While Linh was with us, she had the chance to experience our training first hand. And she knew that the kind of training we offered would benefit those who visit the ASD Trade Show... particularly the growing number who are doing business on Amazon. So, we began talking about how we could create a workshop specifically designed to help Amazon Sellers attending ASD.

Eventually, my team of trainers and I met Linh and Camille Candella, the VP of ASD Source Direct, at the February 2016 ASD Trade Show. And we came to an agreement to provide a 2 Day Workshop to the members of ASD.

We're thrilled about this partnership... and look forward to helping as many ASD attendees as possible as they seek to successfully source products for their FBA businesses during the upcoming Market Week held July 31st – August 3rd.

Finally, Training that Helps Amazon Sellers Know How to Work with Wholesalers and Purchase from an Endless Supply of Products at Trade Shows... So They Can Scale their Business for Maximum Profits

It doesn't take long as an Amazon Seller to discover that the key to a growing Amazon business is to have a constant supply of quality products you can sell at a profit.

That's easy enough to understand... but it's hard to accomplish if you're depending on picking up items in your local community to sell... because even if you find some great items, once they're gone, they're gone... nowhere to be found again.

And that's where sourcing your Amazon business through trade shows – like ASD – comes in...

Ann At ASD Training

At trade shows you can find an endless supply of quality products to sell at a profit...

AND, they're replenishable... which means you can reorder hot selling items... so you can make money from them over and over again!

Sounds terrific, doesn't it?

The only problem is... buying at a trade show can be a little daunting...

After all, trade shows are often huge...

And... as many anxious Amazon Sellers think...

… How do you approach wholesalers without feeling intimidated... or even foolish? ...How do you know what products you should buy... and how many of them? ...And, how can you have any confidence at all that you are making good buying decisions?...Isn't buying for your Amazon business at trade shows risky? It all seems so overwhelming...

Indeed, making purchases at a trade show – especially the size of ASD – can seem overwhelming...

But the good news is, it doesn't have to... and that's why we've put together our 2 Day “Trade Show Sourcing Workshop for Amazon Sellers.”

The 'Trade Show Sourcing Workshop for Amazon Sellers' Will Provide You What You Need to Make Purchases at ASD with Confidence For Your Amazon Business

We’ve put together a very comprehensive program... revealing all you need to know to start buying quality, replenishable products that you can sell on Amazon – at great profit margins.

The program includes:

  • Pre-Event Training
  • 2 Full Days of Workshop Training
  • Hands-on Exercises Throughout
  • And a Generous Amount of Support Documents You Can Use in Your Ongoing Trade Show Sourcing Efforts
  • There's even an opportunity for personal mentorship

With this training, you'll be equipped to conduct business at ASD as a professional...

You'll learn how to avoid the duds and pick the winners... so you won't get stuck with an inventory of products you can't sell... and instead see the dollars build up in your bank account... as a reward for your investment in this training workshop.

I'm certain of it... because of the quality of our trainers, Brian Cumming and Josie Shephard!

 Brian Cumming and Josie Shephard Expert E-Commerce Trainers

Brian and Josie are both experienced, highly regarded trainers in our community. Together, they have attended over 12 different trade shows... and several of them multiple times.

They each have their own unique expertise, too, which makes their training all the more valuable...

Josie is a specialist at arranging product exclusives with manufacturers and wholesalers.

Knowing how to do this yourself can give you an incredible competitive advantage... and it's not hard to pull off either – once you get how to do it.

I know because Josie helped me arrange my own first exclusive deal only three weeks into the business!

Brian, on the other hand, loves liquidations and has this specialty down pat. He knows when to show up, how to structure the deals, and make big product acquisitions.

Some of these acquisitions can net from 300% to 1000% ROI!

Handling liquidation sales can be an important part of your own sourcing strategy, too... and it's something we'll cover at the workshop... so you'll know how to minimize your risks and maximize the amount of money you can bring into your FBA business.

Oh... and something else I should stress about about Brian and Josie: what they teach is not just theory to them... as they both have successful Amazon businesses of their own.

In fact, their own success in business is at the foundation of their training.

Here's a couple quick examples to show you they know what they're doing...

Josie has enjoyed over $50K in monthly sales from just one exclusive deal she set up with a trade show vendor.

And Brian paid $5,612.50 for one lot of products at an ASD liquidation sale that yielded over $89K from this single purchase!

Now, wouldn't you like to know how to do that?

Well... at the workshop, Brian and Josie will be sharing the exact strategies they've used to accomplish these kinds of results.

And that's really saying something... because...

There are some people who know how to get results... but can't show others how to do it...

And there are others who might be able to teach, but don't have the results to back up what they're sharing...

Yet, Brian and Josie have both... a track record as Amazon sellers AND the ability to communicate how others can enjoy the same kind of results they have.

To be instructed by these two – and acquire the wisdom you need from their experience as successful FBA sellers and trainers – is, in my view, a privilege you definitely don't want to miss .

What You Can Expect From Our Workshop…

As is true of all our workshops, we will provide pre-event training to prepare you for a totally successful ASD sourcing experience. That's because we’re all about delivering every piece necessary for you to succeed.

The last thing we want is for our workshop attendees to feel ill equipped as they show up at the ASD trade show event in July.

So to help prepare you, we'll be hosting a pre-event webinar to assure your ASD visit be as smooth and successful as possible.

During this webinar, we'll cover:

  • Travel preparation secrets that will spare you grief (includes details like 'where to park')
  • Questions about the registration process
  • Tips on how to use the ASD Smartphone app and show planner... so you can make the most efficient use of your time at Market Week
  • The one thing you MUST do for vendors to even speak with you (this is absolutely critical)
  • How to set ASD trade show goals... that are right for you
  • The 3 sourcing models at ASD (and how to determine the primary model you should follow)

  • The simple research you should do... BEFORE you arrive at ASD
  • Why researching Best Sellers and familiarizing yourself with them is so vital to your success
  • A personalized product strategy that will give you the edge over your competition
  • New to ASD? We'll provide you with our best recommendations to keep you from feeling overwhelmed
  • PLUS... essential handouts, including our “Business Credential Checklist.”

With this pre-event webinar, you'll be 'good to go' when it's time to attend the event... and you'll be ready to focus on how you can best grow your Amazon business while you're there!

Brian Cummings
Brian, a certified neuromuscular therapist, got his start on eBay eight years ago buying stuff at garage sales. His big breakthrough came as a result of selling books on Amazon generating 250K in sales per year with 60% profit margins. He paid off $60K in debt and bought a new home and Mercedes Benz RV.

Brian is a crowd favorite because of his ability to draw from his thirty years plus of small business ownership to provide the entire thought process behind a successful e-commerce business. He has coached and advised other entrepreneurs in both their online and local retail and service businesses. Brian is also the co-creator of his exclusive Book Flipping Profit System.

Dr. Josie Shepard

Josie retired from working as a clinical psychologist and started selling on Amazon in 2012. Her gross revenue in the first 10 months was $137K (what a surprise!) and over $400K in the next year (this Amazon stuff really works!). Now she isn’t telling anymore!

Josie multi-tasks at her personal Amazon business, her packing and shipping business exclusively for Amazon sellers (PrepItPackItShipIt.com), Amazon account management business, and teaches others how to build successful Amazon businesses.

Learning 'The Amazon Way' for Greater Business Success

Throughout the Trade Show Sourcing Workshop we'll be showing you how to make smart buying decisions while you are at ASD.

An essential part of this is knowing the 'best practices' for dealing with Amazon in your own FBA business...

Think about it:

Wouldn't it be awful to make a large purchase order of seemingly hot items only to find out later they are on Amazon's restricted list or require excessive storage fees?

That's why you need to know The Amazon Way... and we're going to show it to you...

The sessions covering Amazon will be jam packed with information you must have to minimize your risk and maximize your profits as an Amazon Seller.

If you've already been selling on Amazon, you'll gain tips that will have you saying, “I wish I knew that a long time ago.”

… Just learning how to get the most out of the FBA Revenue Calculator will be worth the price of the workshop for some attendees!

And... if you're new to Amazon, this information will have you doing things the right way from the very start.

Remember, FBA has some huge advantages for you as an Amazon seller...

Most notably there are all the advantages that go along with having an Amazon store and shipping your products... But to truly profit from these advantages, you MUST know the details of how Amazon's system works.

You'll get those details during our time together.

How to Select Profitable Products

What tends to overwhelm people at a trade show as big as ASD is the thought of having to decide which products to purchase in the midst of such a multitude of choices.

But this sense of overwhelm is avoided when you focus on the buying strategy right for you... and know how to evaluate products.

The workshop will give you the tools to do this... and when you use them, making purchasing decisions goes from being stressful to being fun and exciting... as you think about the profits that await you!

Dealing With Wholesalers Like a Pro

Learning how to deal with wholesalers is a big part of having a successful trade show experience.

To begin with – like so much else in life – it's about developing relationships. If you keep that in mind, it will go a long way toward keeping your dealing with wholesalers headed in the right direction.

But beyond this, there are some specifics you also need to know... to help you choose the right suppliers and arrange hassle-free transactions...

Some of the specifics we'll cover to get you comfortable dealing with vendors include:

  • 5 questions to get you conversing with wholesalers... and gain valuable information for yourself as a buyer
  • Are you concerned about appearing legitimate to wholesalers? We'll give you 8 simple things to do so you can present yourself professionally in no time... and gain the confidence of those you want to do business with
  • An EASY way to practice approaching wholesalers... that you can do in the privacy of your own home
  • Proven scripts you can use to get in the door with wholesalers – you'll love this!
  • What NEVER to say to a wholesaler
  • What you MUST look for when reading the fine print of a 'Reseller Agreement'
  • Not sure what MAP, MOQ, or MSRP mean? We'll provide 'Must Know' vocabulary for dealing with wholesalers
  • Questions wholesalers will ask of YOU... they aren't hard to answer, but you do need to be prepared
  • Advantages you can offer wholesalers to make them WANT to do business with you
  • Role playing scenarios to nail down your understanding and boost your confidence when it comes to interacting with wholesalers
  • Why ASD is an excellent trade show to source your Amazon Business... whether you are just getting started or have been working Amazon for years.
  • The FIRST thing you need to be sure of before considering buying at closeouts
  • “Must ask” questions for a liquidation supplier
  • The perfect strategy you can arrange with wholesalers to protect yourself from competition – and the need to suddenly drop your price on hot items
  • The 3 kinds of liquidation sales taking place at ASD... are any of these right for you?
  • Why Wholesale Sourcing is the way to go for those who want to build a booming Amazon business
  • The one Amazon statistic that can make you rich... keeping this stat in mind will continually remind you why you are an Amazon Seller

Once you get a handle on these areas – and others we'll touch on – talking with wholesalers will become like talking to new friends.

And you'll be equipped to establish relationships that can profit you for years to come.

Creating Your Own Products and Brand

One of the best strategies for rising above the competition on Amazon is to arrange for private label products and establish your own brand.

You might think creating your own products and brand is something only available to celebrities or large corporations... but actually, savvy Amazon Sellers are using this strategy to control their products and distance themselves from their competitors... leading to much higher sales numbers.

… And you can be among them... with the guidance we'll provide at the workshop!

Here's just a sample of what will be shared:

  • The easiest way to make yourself immune to competition on Amazon
  • Why arranging a 'private label' may not be as hard as you think
  • The reasons to have your own brand... and how to develop yours
  • How to create “assets” that you can sell later... this can be a great retirement plan for yourself
  • What to do if Amazon or other sellers meddle with the listing of your unique offering... for example, replaces your pictures with their own
  • Naming products... and how your long-term goals should guide you in what you call your creations
  • How to defend your products against those who seek to infringe on your ideas and work
  • Ways to support your brand so it grows
  • What basics you need to know about trademarks, patents, and copyrights

How to Make International Sourcing Work for You

Importing products can also be a fantastic way to source your Amazon business. And not just from China, but other countries... like Taiwan, Mexico, India, and South Korea.

This year ASD will have roughly 600 international vendors – their largest group ever – and you'll have the opportunity to talk face to face with those you're most interested in through ASD Source Direct.

And we'll cover the essentials when it comes to talking with these wholesalers and making an international order yourself.

(Master Trainer Josie Shepard, in particular, will share some real insights for you... based on her experience running her own shipping business in Southern California along with her own sourcing efforts while in Thailand.)

We'll discuss topics like:

  • When it makes sense to stick with a US supplier rather than one from overseas
  • How to search for – and find – suppliers for your own private label products
  • Importing products has never been easier for individual sellers... but you need to know how to navigate the process... we'll show you the 'rules of the road' for importing products
  • 'Proforma Invoices'... and the details that must be covered BEFORE you hand over your money
  • The essential requirement of ALL products shipped to you
  • The best way to handle fees and customs
  • How to avoid products that bomb – and select those with maximum profit potential
  • And a whole lot more

Importing products used to be much more challenging than it is today...

But thanks to ASD SOURCE DIRECT and our Trade Show Sourcing Workshop for Amazon Sellers, international sourcing is within reach for any Amazon Seller motivated to pursue it...

Our trainers have the expertise to cover you...

If you want to take advantage of the huge opportunities that exist to source your business internationally, we'll show you how to get it done!

Special “Add On” Training for You

We are aware that many of the people who attend our workshops have high hopes that their Amazon business will fulfill some pretty big personal dreams...

These dreams include:

  • Providing security for the future
  • Getting in a position to quit a job (or allow a spouse to quit a job)
  • Helping to provide higher education for children (or grandchildren)
  • Traveling the world
  • Having more money to give and help others
  • And other dreams as well

We take the dreams our attendees have very seriously... and that's why we're so pleased to let you know of some special “Add On” training that will also be available during your visit to ASD... to move your success along even further...

Here are the extra sessions that will be available to you:

  • Profitable (and Secure) China Sourcing for Your Amazon Business – Learn the Fundamentals of Sourcing From the World’s Premiere Manufacturing Giant – with China Sourcing Agent Robert Sieg
  • Amazon’s Sponsored Advertising Platform: Get More Buyers to View Your Amazon Listings – with Head Coach Curt Johnson
  • How to Use Pinterest to Drive Traffic and Sales to Your Amazon Listings – with Social Media expert Lisa Saline

These one hour training sessions will be offered outside the time of your “2 Day Trade Show Sourcing Workshop for Amazon Sellers” (but will be in the same conference room).

PLUS, There's More... FOUR Exclusive Workshop Bonuses

I realize that not everyone coming to ASD will choose to attend this special event. Some people prefer to move ahead slowly... and they don't mind learning through trial and error. That's their style, and that's okay.

But there are others who want to move forward with their FBA business as quickly as possible, while minimizing the risk that comes from purchasing a large number of products...

These folks want all the guidance they can get... so they can avoid the costs of inexperience... and instead feel right at home with the process of purchasing from wholesalers... and have complete confidence in the buying decisions they make.

In short, they want to make sure they're doing it right... from the very start!

And it's these people we want to make sure we help as much as we can...

  • Tired of jumping from one Amazon category to another? We can streamline this down for you, freeing up brain space to get into a profitable and fun niche suited uniquely to you
  • We’ll show you how to sort through the multitude of niche categories to figure out which one will bring you the longest term profitability

BONUS #4. E-Commerce Business School Group Pinterest Board ($500 Value)
Reuters.com reports that “Pinterest shoppers, on average, spend nearly $170 per session.” That's significant, and we'd like our workshop members to profit from it. An ideal strategy to make this happen is for our members who have learned together to implement together through Pinterest Boards. In this way we get more traffic, and more traffic means more sales. As we encourage each other on to more product listings and sales, and to pin on Pinterest, it only boosts everyone else’s products up into the Pinterest traffic stream.

Together, these bonuses really help round out your training and resources... and they are included for everyone who signs up for the workshop.

“How to Walk the Showroom Floor” Mentorship Available... for a Limited Number of Attendees

As much as we’d love to take all our workshop attendees out on to the ASD showroom floor – for some real hands on experience – this just isn’t feasible.

But... what we can do is take 3 members (or 2 couples) – one small group at a time.

In fact, this is exactly what we did during the February 2016 ASD Trade Show... and we discovered that this level of mentorship was extremely valuable for those who participated...

And it went so well we want to offer it again... for those who would really like this type of personal, real life training.

 Brian Cumming On the Floor Of ASD

So, here's the deal:

We are offering “Walk the Floor” Mentorship Sessions for just 24 workshop attendees.

Those who opt to purchase a slot in one of these sessions will receive 2 full hours of training with master trainer Brian or Josie on the Trade Show floor.

During this time, you will be guided first-hand through conversations with exhibitors. Plus, you’ll be able to see how a sourcing expert engages wholesalers and works out deals with them... so you can learn and apply these skills as you approach wholesalers on your own.

BUT that's not all... Brian and Josie also insisted on holding a “re-cap” follow up session with all the members who stepped up to the plate for the “Walk The Show Room Floor” mentorship experience.

The purpose of this regroup session is to help you make your final decisions about which products to purchase. Of course, the responsibility for any purchases will be yours, but here you'll have the opportunity to get straight from our experts the “pros and cons” of any products you are considering.

So... if you would like personal assistance directly from our sourcing masters to...

  • Develop your goals for purchasing products at ASD
  • Determine how to best work within your budget
  • Find the right suppliers at ASD
  • Learn how to spot successful products for Amazon in one glance
  • Get comfortable talking with suppliers
  • Know the questions to ask suppliers to decide if a product is right for you
  • Evaluate a variety of product possibilities
  • Know how to respond to the “Amazon Objection”
  • Negotiate smoothly like a professional
  • Review your personal product selections
  • And receive specific tips to best position your product on Amazon...

… then I encourage you to go for the 'Walk the Showroom Floor' Mentorship option...

The kind of knowledge and confidence you can acquire from the entire 'Walk the Floor' experience is invaluable when it comes to your future conversations and negotiations at the ASD trade show... and anywhere else you want to source products from.

But remember... the slots are limited, so be sure and register for the workshop ASAP – and select the 'Walk the Floor' option when you check out.

Oh... and to make your “Walk the Floor” experience even more beneficial for you, we are also including two specialty trainings... just for those who choose the mentorship option...

Specialty Training #1: “Mastering the Coveted Amazon Buy Box”

  • The four elements you must have or you'll never get the buy box
  • Amazon's guiding principle for how the buy box works
  • The six things you can't let happen if you want the buy box
  • Three myths almost everyone believes about the buy box - NOT TRUE!

Specialty Training #2: “Wholesale Sourcing from Home”

  • Where to begin
  • “Attend” a trade show from home
  • Easy access to thousands of wholesale suppliers
  • Trade show smartphone apps - your new supplier rolodex
  • How to reach the right supplier rep - without any introduction

These two trainings are presented via recorded video, so you can watch them at your convenience... and as often as you would like.

So, to sum up...

The Trade Show Sourcing Workshop for Amazon Sellers is a 2 Day Event being Co-Hosted by ASD and E-Commerce Business School on July 30th & 31st as a part of ASD Market Week.

This workshop is designed to give you, as an Amazon Seller, all the tools you need to make confident purchases at ASD (and other trade shows), and successfully position your products on Amazon.

The training we'll provide attendees is comprehensive in that it covers everything necessary for an Amazon FBA Seller to begin sourcing and scaling their business through trade shows.

There will be 8 formal teaching sessions, with ample time for questions and discussion.

In addition, those who register will be invited to a Pre-Workshop Webinar, and receive a Physical Manual of Essential Documents at the event that will help you source products for Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA).

As an attendee, you will also be able to attend 3 Add-On Trainings, covering China sourcing, Amazon Sponsored Advertising, and Pinterest as a traffic source...

And you will also receive 4 Exclusive Workshop Bonuses: the Trade Show Workshop Facebook Page, the Group Pinterest Board, and the two recorded trainings, 'How to Create an Amazon Listing that Sells' and 'Product Niche Selection and Strategy.'

Finally, for those who act quickly, there is our “How to Walk the Showroom Floor” Mentorship Option. This premium training will give you incomparable training experience when it comes to engaging wholesale sellers and negotiating sales. (Limited to the first 24 who respond.)

Don't Miss this Opportunity to Get an Essential Education for Sourcing Your Amazon Business... Right While You Are at ASD!

I remember well my first visit to ASD. I felt like the proverbial kid in a candy store... as I knew I was surrounded by products that could launch my new Amazon business the way I dreamed.

But, as an adult, I also knew things could go horribly wrong...

I knew I could waste my plane fare and hotel charges by just wandering the showroom floor without purchasing anything... because I wasn't confident about what to buy...

Or worse... I knew I could waste even more money by choosing items that – because of my inexperience – just wouldn't sell, and end up rotting in storage somewhere...

Well... fortunately, I had the preparation I needed to make smart – and profitable – buying decisions...

And that's the very thing I want you to have through the Trade Show Sourcing Workshop for Amazon Sellers...

In fact, the leadership of ASD thought this kind of education is so important, they asked us to create this program for you... and partner together to deliver it!

Now, when you take into account all that's included, the full value of what you'll receive as a workshop attendee is $3,091. ($8,585 for the “How to Walk the Showroom Floor” Mentorship).

But you're not going to pay close to that much for either option...

The Cost of the Workshop is a ONE-TIME Payment of $1297 $997

And, The Optional “How to Walk the Showroom Floor” Mentorship Session is an Additional One-Time Payment of $1997 $1,497

I understand, even at this price the cost of the workshop... and mentorship... are not cheap. But failing to get the kind of education this workshop provides can be far more costly...

Just one or two poorly chosen orders can be financially devastating as your capital gets tied up in dead beat products...

And unfortunately, it happens... to those who don't have the knowledge they need to make fully informed buying decisions.

The good news is... you can avoid these hazards... and discover how to work with wholesalers and make smart, profitable buying decisions among all the products available at ASD...

For this reason, I urge you not to shortchange your e-commerce education... especially, at the very time you are ramping up your FBA Business.

Instead, get the peace of mind that comes with being prepared... by attending this workshop that's being conveniently held in conjunction with ASD.

To register, simply fill out the order form below and choose either...

(A) Trade Show Sourcing Workshop for Amazon Sellers, or

(B) Trade Show Sourcing Workshop for Amazon Sellers with 'Walk the Floor' Mentorship

Once you register, we will send you an email that confirms your registration and provides details about the Pre-Event Webinar, as well as other vital workshop information.

What Attendee's Have Said...

Josie Shepard is truly a wealth of knowledge.
Jay Powell
The Sourcing Intensive Workshop was everything I was anticipating and more! I feel like so much was “de-mystified.” of that makes sense. Josie and Brian took, what was for me, a pretty intimidating arena and made it seem very doable. I know I am just scratching the surface of what is available to do with Amazon, but the fear factor is gone. Plus I got to meet some incredible like-minded friends.
Karen Olsen
Excellent presentation... Kudos Josie!
Marcella Hull
It was absolutely wonderful training, presented in a very understandable manner.
Rich Martin
