Coming from a retail brick and mortar background, there was a big learning curve. However, business is business and some things never change: you need to negotiate and buy product to make a great presentation, advertise it and fulfill the order. But as I’ve learned with KT V.I.P, Amazon FBA is its own universe. There have been a lot of late nights negotiating with someone in China, setting up online programs for product selection, PPC advertising optimization and accounting for taxes. Everything is different.
During this learning curve, I've experienced some adversity. For example, I’ve had my site suppressed a couple different times because a picture needed to be changed or a description needed a comma. I’ve had to learn new things like setting up variations via a flat file. But I learned early on in my other business that as frustrating is it is at the time, it will only make you smarter, stronger and better. It’s worth the frustration.
In my first month, I applied all my KT V.I.P. learnings so far and reached $3500 in sales and just hit $4600 for my last 30 days. I have added a variation and have two more variations in production now.
