Well, friends it’s like this, I haven’t posted in a while because I, like everyone else has been trying to get my head together with this covid nightmare, so as the title suggests gfpharma.co.uk goes podcasting in a bid to generate traffic and interest.
I will be putting a summing up of how the business has gone so far quite soon and suffice to say it doesn’t make for light reading, but I think that it is a message that needs to be put out there.
Spoiler alert, there are lies and then there are online business guru’s
So far we have made a minus balance and the trend looks to be consistent, so if you do not have the appetite for my next post then just take that as a warning, always assume bullshit until proved otherwise.
However all the money we have spent has not been wasted, the experience has taught me more about online marketing and life in general than I could have learned anywhere else, this I have carried into my podcasts, it is time for the bullshit to end and I hope to do my part to bring about that end, so please have a listen (or not) and I will catch you very soon, be lucky everybody.
Check out my podcast, GFPharma Fitness, on Anchor: https://anchor.fm/gfpharma
There are hundreds of courses out there to help you become an Amazon seller and on the whole they cost thousands to access, I know that you only get out of life what you put in but that does not mean we need to over extend ourselves or use money unnecessarily to learn something that can be picked up for free, sure if you were to be paying a couple of hundred pounds for a course then it would probably save you that much in errors further down the line, but when we start talking four and five thousand dollars then I really do think you would have to really screw up on a monumental scale to even up the balance.
I am not saying that these courses are all worthless, I am just pointing out that they are expensive and the majority of us have been driven to look for a side hustle or a change in income streams through lack of available funds, not through and abundance of money and boredom.
So I started looking around to see if there were any free reliable alternatives to some of the expensive courses, and I found this site https://tinuiti.com/blog/amazon/sell-on-amazon-uk/ the guide seems really thorough and one of the first things that I noticed was that I actually had no idea of the prerequisites of opening a seller account on Amazon, I also found another site as an alternative to Junglescout this is https://sellics.com they not only have a 14 day trial offer but they have some free resources including keyword search for your chosen products.
Another challenge I have is the US centric nature of this business, so I will be spending some time researching how much of an impact this will actually have on me as a UK resident and if there are any workarounds to those issues.
Turns out there are, in future posts I will going through setting up my seller account from a UK perspective and hopefully making a profit.
That’s all for now…….
