Well, Duh! - Seemingly Intuitive Efficient Hacks You Haven't Thought Of
One thing all of us online sellers need more of is time. Over the years of selling online I have perfected my office, both virtual and actual to maximize my space and minimize wasted steps and keystrokes. I have compiled all the tips and tricks needed to help you run a more efficient day. I call these my Well, Duh! moments. As I would do something that saved me time, I always though well, duh, of course that should've have been this way all along.

Besides sharing time saving tips, I will also share customer service secrets. No matter what platform you sell on, there is an end customer. A lot of online sellers don't know how to act when put in a situation where someone is unhappy. I have perfected these skills too and love to share them and guide everyone to a better resolve when having to deal with customer service issues, either as the buyer or seller.

Sourcing, Importing & Private Label Branding Products from China for Amazon.com Sellers
With competition on Amazon at an all-time high, one of the best ways to differentiate your business and get access to new and exciting products is through China sourcing.

Sourcing from China gives you access to products that can be sold on Amazon in many categories. China sourcing also enables you to increase your margins, bring unique product to the marketplace, and build a brand asset for your business.

In this presentation, we'll cover the steps to sourcing, importing and creating private label products by importing from China. These products can be sold on Amazon.com or other online sales channels.

My name is Anthony Fichera and about 9 years ago I embarked on this same journey. Along the way, I developed a system of evaluating products, importing and private label branding that includes legal and IP/intellectual property/trademark research. What I've learned will save you time, money and position you on the track of China sourcing success.

If you're considering importing from China, the tips you'll learn in this presentation will give you the confidence to take the next steps to successful China sourcing and private labeling!
