Last Sunday I was in the Lusaka Tourist market and made you a quick video.
As I wandered around I pondered how amazing it is that “location creates pricing power” is just as true in an online marketplace such as Amazon (or other online marketplaces) as it is in a small city-level ‘real-world’ marketplace in a town in Africa.
The sellers in this marketplace come from rural villages as far away as 8 hours each Sunday! The reason? They can buy an item in their village for 7 Kwacha (about $1) and sell it in the Lusaka Marketplace for $3, $4, or even $5.
Lesson for sellers: sell at the big marketplace in your industry or region, (this is true for both off-line and online sellers).
Just a quick note to let you know that Amazon currently has the Craft Business Power ebook on sale for just 99 cents until midnight on the 26th. Be sure to snag a copy before the price goes back up. And if you’ve never seen our little promo video for it – here it is:
In today’s interview I sit down with the senior statesman of online selling – Jim Cockrum. He’s a bestselling author and is ranked as one of the most trusted online marketers and the foremost expert on Selling On Amazon. We discuss the opportunity to buy items locally and resell them on Amazon for a profit. I think you’ll enjoy the interview and the resources Jim provides…(note – the Skype recorder lags for a minute at the beginning, but then it corrects itself…sorry about that!).
Let Jim give you a video overview of what you get when you join PAC:

Recently I sat down with Amazon seller Terah Lites to discuss her venture into the fun new world of online arbitrage – finding products and selling them on Amazon for a profit. I think you’ll really enjoy this interview:
