I have decided to do the coaching program again in 2018

I was on the fence for the past month, but seeing a bunch of last year's clients doing well and even selling out their products during the holiday season made me decide to do this next year!

Below are results from four of my 2017 clients. Keep in mind that mpst of these numbers are from just 3-4 months of selling.

25353679_10214325107897447_2479870668491265420_n.jpg

The format will be the same as last years. Conference on Sunday nights for 2 months and then private coaching for the next 4 months. In addition, you will be invited into a private Facebook group with me and all the past participants.

This program length is about 6 months long (January 14, 2018 to June 30, 2018). Yes, there's an end date, but quite honestly once you are in the Facebook group I will continue to answer your questions. I am still in contact with the 2016 and 2017 group.

I've found that the schedule works out very well because February is Chinese New Year so nobody gets quotes or samples anyway. So we learn about product selection and then really start doing the actual work in March-June. People get their products around September and get a few months under their belt until the holiday season hits.

The general timeline will look like this:

January and February - Weekly group calls where we will discuss product selection and help you determine what is good, bad, easy and hard to sell online and most importantly why. We will discuss potential products and some case studies of my own products to help you all understand how I choose my products.

I also wanted to make the product selection phase longer so that clients aren't pressured to choosing something because they feel that they are running out of time. In 2017 some clients didn't find their product until May or June.

March-May - Clients should be on their way to select a product. In this phase they we be speaking with a supplier and getting samples. At this point, we will move towards the 1 on 1 coaching. I am doing 1 on 1 because I don't know if every client will want to reveal their product selection to the others. This is always a sensitive area and I would error on the side of privacy.

June+ Clients should usually have placed their initial production order by this time. There is alot of waiting at this point.

Products arrive and we list on Amazon. We will optimize listings and sell!

Communication between you and me

· Weekly group call coaching sessions in Jan. and Feb. Calls will be on Sunday nights. They last about 2 hours.
· 1 on 1 weekly coaching calls from Mar. to June.
· Unlimited email communications
· Access to private Facebook Group (all new clients and past clients are eligible to join, what you divulge in there is up to you)

What you will learn

Product selection – This is the most important choice you can make as it will shape your business in the month’s to come. We are not picking any AMZ seller products. We will be hand choosing products that have little or no competition and likely will not have many in the future. Amazon gets more competitive every year, so product selection is critical. That is why we are spending 2-3 months on this part.

Importing – We will go over the process of getting samples all the way to importing your first production order.

Everything Amazon – Everything you need to know about selling on Amazon. We will not be using any review groups to launch.

Everything Ecommerce – I will help you set up your own ecommerce store on Shopify or Bigcommerce. You will need your own store as we are building a real business, not an Amazon business.

Photography – I will teach you how to take photos with your smart phone and edit them with free editing software. This is a very important part of your listing.

General value add strategy – Changing your thought process to care about value vs. profit.

Cost

The price for this coaching program is $8,000 USD. The full payment amount is due upfront.

Other Requirements

You should also have at least $3,000 (preferably $6,000) to spend on your first inventory order.

What results you should expect

If you end up with a business that is profiting $500-$1500 a month with one product on Amazon, I would call our time together a huge success.

We are not trying to find you a $10,000/mo product. We will find a decent product that is profitable and relatively easy to sell with little or no competition.

I want to make your life easier and lower its stress, not help you battle in the trenches of Amazon warfare. If you want to do that, just save your money and start a supplement company. :)

I am trying to teach you skills that you can use to replicate what we’ve done. I am teaching you how to think, not what to think or what to do. Therefore, if you have one decent product, you can find another one.

OK, Let's be real

Yes, you are paying me alot of money. But spending money and attending group calls does not make you successful. You must be willing to work hard, but more importantly you must be willing to think and exercise your brain. There's going to be alot of stuff that suddenly makes sense and you wonder why you didn't think of that. That is your brain thinking and changing its thought process.

You may be running the numbers and thinking, geez $8k and he's finding me a product that makes $500/mo. That's like 16 months to get my money back. Well, that's not the point of this course. If we find a $500/mo product, you should be looking for another $500/mo product after this program is over. The point is for you to leave with a some startup business and more importantly, for you to leave with a better brain inside your head that can generate hundreds of $500/mo products for life.

I will help you find and source a product, set goals and answer all your questions, but I cannot guarantee your success.

I can only put you in a position to succeed and you must do the rest. I am also not a babysitter, so I will not be contacting you if miss calls or are not contacting me. Some products will take longer than others to develop, improve, rank or sell and may take longer than 6 months to fully mature.

Thank you for taking the time to offer coaching. Just wondering, I travel for work and am at a hotel 4-5 nights a week but usually home on weekends, I also work during the day but have 4-5 hours a night to give. Just wondering if the opportunity you present is feasible for my given situation, don't want to potentially take an opportunity away from someone else whom may be a better fit?

Thank You

This really depends on how bad you want it. All of my clients from earlier this year have jobs. A few were gone for 1-2 weeks at a time and couldn't make all the calls. They still succeeded. On my donation call last month there was a guy from Europe who woke up at 3am, just to call into my 90 minute call!

I don't think that being in a hotel will hinder you from starting a business. But some people watch TV all night in hotel rooms and don't get any work done. Others go down to the bar. I personally am on my computer when I'm in a hotel room and I get a decent amount of work done.

I don't want you to waste your money, so you need to decide how committed you will be.

Those 8k must be totally worth it but I'd have to sell a kidney to afford the program!

Hopefully you'll still be doing this in 2019 or 2020.

@biophase how are you clients living in Europe doing when compared to the ones who are living in the USA?

Are the ones living in Europe facing problems related to their location that's hindering their process?

Are the ones living in Europe facing problems related to their location that's hindering their process?
There are plenty of people making a (good) living with AWS whilst not being physically present in US. This is just another problem that needs to be solved.

I'm based in Europe. I've signed up. No more excuses.

Hey Kenric,

All of my capital and focus will be on product development this year, but I do have a question - I might be looking to supplement my products with others in an ecommerce business, and my wife is heavily interested in ecommerce as well. If you do the program next year, would you be open to coaching a couple simultaneously?

Pretty much, just thought it courteous to ask. Inevitably, we’d each have questions, but would respect the time boundaries.

I'm in - if there are still any spots? K - i emailed you just now.

My personal goal is to use this as a second/side business (already have a successful ecom business) and i want to generate $1500 monthly profit by this time next year

That number is quite specific, as it's what i need to cover the costs on my new toy (Audi RS6 Performance)

Cheers!

Hey man, its great to follow your road. Also because I just started aswell.

I have a couple of questions you can possibly help me with. I found my product by needing it myself but it had so much flaws and bad reviews. I am gonna improve it, I contacted suppliers on alibaba and have sent them an image of the product that already exists with my 6 things they need to improve. There's 6 crucial things that need to be improved for it to be perfect imo. Is this the way to go about that? What is your experience in communicating to manufacturers? I would gladly learn from you =)

Thanks in advance

If biophase would do the program again next year, that gives you 6-7 months to get the money together. Every year people say the same thing that you've just said however only few people actually follow-through and join the program the year after.

You are right. I will start FBAing anyway, because I like to make innovation but I will join this because education is always worth it.

I actually currently have 9k€ of liquidity. I will keep fingers crossed that €/$ parity works in my favor. :)

@biophase, long time lurker and fan. Thanks for the content you've been putting out over the years.

I understand applications are likely closed by now. But please put my name down for the next cohort if it's available. I've managed to put up the cash and would love to get in on this course.

Cheers.
