How To Beat 5 Scary EBiz Wholesale Problems, Day 5

October 30th, 2017

Whether Halloween is your bag of candy or it’s just another day to you, there are some TRULY scary forces at work in the Ecommerce wholesale industry that would curdle the blood of the most experienced tricksters. These forces work to damage the success of your ECommerce business EVERY DAY of the year, not just on Halloween.

So we thought we’d take this opportunity to show you how to get the TREAT for your EBiz this Halloween, instead of all the TRICKS.

Here’s Day 5: “Slik The Free Trial Imp”

As we said in Day 4 of this series (you read Day 4, right?), the Halloween lore is rich with Imps. Malevolent, deceitful little creatures, these tricksters delight in misleading people, and in wreaking havoc and destruction wherever they can.

The ECommerce business is no exception; it’s full of Imps. Just search “ECommerce” in Google. You’d have a really hard time finding anything that does NOT lead directly to something controlled by an Imp!

In Day 4 we talked about Bogus The Product Choice Imp. Here in Day 5, you need to be warned about Slik The Free Trial Imp. In many ways, this Imp is even more dangerous than the last.

Slik The Free Trial Imp has found that it’s easy to prey upon unsuspecting EBiz Owners by playing off a natural weakness we humans have for the word “FREE”.

Any time we see “FREE”, we think ‘Oooohhh! Free!’ and we tend to jump on whatever the offer is. After all, what harm could there be in something that’s free??

Empires have fallen over things that are “free”. Remember the Trojan Horse? How much you wanna bet that ‘free’ gift was inspired by an Imp way back then? The forces of evil are not new; they’ve just found a new place to play when it comes to the ECommerce marketing space.

The scary, nefarious influence of Slik The Free Trial Imp can be found in many different offers in ECommerce. Free Web Site Trials, Free Webinars, Free Tools…it’s a long list, and it leads straight to the dreaded ECommerce Graveyard.

WHY?

Because ‘Free’ is NEVER ‘Free’. ‘Free’ ALWAYS leads to something else you’re told you need to BUY in order to make ‘Free’ actually WORK. Still, we humans flock to ‘Free’ like a gaggle of Trick-or-Treaters flock to a bucket of candy.

Since there are so many examples of this Imp-driven practice in ECommerce, we’re forced to stick with only two; listing them all would take forever. So we’ll stick to two that tie in with the Tricksters and Imps we’ve mentioned previously. Kill-O-Tron The Automated Product Feed Day 1 and Bogus The Product Choice Imp Day 4 work well together with Slik The Free Trial Imp when it comes to FREE TRIAL ECOMMERCE SITES, and FAKE WHOLESALE SUPPLIERS.

1. WHAT’S THE PROBLEM WITH A FREE TRIAL ECOMMERCE SITE?

You’ve seen them all over the place. “Get your Free 14 Day Trial!”, “Need A Web Site? Get TRIX for 30 Days Free!”, and so on and so on, ad nauseum.

The problem is that not only do these places FULLY expect to make you DEPENDENT on their systems so that you HAVE to buy them after the Free Trial. They ALSO work very hard to make you believe that ECommerce is EASY, and that you’ll see RESULTS in that short period of time.

Here’s the kicker…they encourage you to quickly place all kinds of UNRELATED PRODUCTS on that Free Trial web site so that you can get it up and running quickly. After all, it’s a LIMITED Free Trial, right? If you want it up and running in that Free Trial period there is NO time to do proper Market Research in order to find a profitable, well-niched set of products that will sell well online.

SO…

Slik The Free Trial Imp gets you to put up an instant site-in-a-box, slap loads of unrelated and un-researched wholesale products on it, and when that DOESN’T work (which it never will) Slik The Free Trial Imp shows his true colors and starts CHARGING you for all kinds of expensive and ridiculous marketing tools that don’t work either.

Hey, these Imps don’t care that you won’t succeed. They just need to keep you bobbing for apples for as long as they possibly can, because each time you stick your head in the water to try to grab an apple, you PAY for it.

2. WHAT’S THE PROBLEM WITH FAKE WHOLESALERS?

Well, beside the obvious fact that they’re FAKE (major clue), Slik The Free Trial Imp loads up these ‘Free Trial’ Wholesale Directories with fakes that look real. We’ve talked about this, remember? Middlemen, no profit margins, etc.?

Then, when you can’t compete on price even if you COULD get your site or product listings seen in that short Free Trial period (which you won’t anyway), Slik The Free Trial Imp starts telling you that you have to PAY for info on more suppliers (which are also FAKE, and lead to more middlemen and no profit margins).

But it’s all okay to start heading down this dark and lonely path, because Slik The Free Trial Imp tells you, IT’S FREE.

It’s the chicken and the egg and the chicken. Round and round the barnyard we go, and this close to Halloween, there are all KINDS of bad things lurking in the barnyard at night!

SO HOW DO YOU PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR BUSINESS?

As we said in Day 4, Imps can be banished by the use of certain wards, weapons and enchantments. But those are uncertain, unclean and dangerous things that we humans shouldn’t be messing with.

Your best defense against Slik the Free Trial Imp is to IGNORE him:

1. Forget the Free Trial web sites. That’s an Imp-inspired marketing tactic that will leave you with Goblin manure on your face and nothing in your candy bucket. Research the CAPABILITIES of the web platforms you consider selling on, not the HYPE.

2. You need to locate REAL wholesale sources that are NOT FAKE, and that provide tightly niched, well-rounded selections of wholesale products you can sell online. That’s the only way you’re actually going to earn real profits online.

How do you find these REAL, tightly focused suppliers? The only way to be CERTAIN is to use a 100% REAL Wholesale and Drop Ship Directory.

There’s only ONE. Worldwide Brands.

For 18 years, Worldwide Brands has been fighting this hidden battle against the evil ECommerce business-killers that go bump in the night, INCLUDING Imps of all kinds. We Certify wholesalers with a lengthy process that insures that every wholesaler we list is REAL. Then, just to be sure, we check to make sure they don’t offer any misleading ‘Free Trials’.

This Halloween, make sure that you’re not making critical Imp-inspired mistakes in YOUR online business. Get Worldwide Brands at a huge Halloween Discount, and spend your time selling LOTS of your tightly-niched products online.

If you want to make money online, you need the TREAT, not the Trick.

How To Beat 5 Scary EBiz Wholesale Problems, Day 4

October 27th, 2017

Halloween…it’s that time of year again when they say the veil is thinnest between the good and evil forces of the world (oooohhh…scary!).

Whether Halloween is your bag of candy or it’s just another day to you, there are some TRULY scary forces at work in the Ecommerce wholesale industry that would curdle the blood of the most experienced tricksters. These forces work to damage the success of your ECommerce business EVERY DAY of the year, not just on Halloween.

So we thought we’d take this opportunity to show you how to get the TREAT for your EBiz this Halloween, instead of all the TRICKS.

Here’s Day 4: “Bogus The Product Choice Imp”

The Halloween lore is rich with Imps. Malevolent, deceitful little creatures, these tricksters delight in misleading people, and in wreaking havoc and destruction wherever they can. 

The ECommerce business is full of Imps. Just search “ECommerce” in Google. You’d have a really hard time finding anything that does NOT lead directly to something controlled by an Imp!

Bogus The Product Choice Imp has found himself a perfect place from which to wreak utter havoc on unsuspecting EBiz Owners. He finds unscrupulous EBiz marketers, whispers in their ears and causes them to tell you to put ALL KINDS of different products on your web site.

Bogus The Product Choice Imp works hand in hand with Kill-O-Tron The Automatic Product Feed, the Trickster we talked about in Day One of this series (you have read Day One, right?)

So Bogus The Product Choice Imp tells everyone to put any old set of products on their web sites, and Kill-O-Tron The Automatic Product Feed AUTOMATICALLY puts groups of unrelated products on people’s web sites. 

WHY IS THIS A PROBLEM?

The search engines, especially Google, are now looking at web sites AS A WHOLE. They want to see a web site that is a serious source of authority on ONE THING, and one thing only. That’s how successful web sites get ranked well. 

That means that ALL of the products and information on a web site MUST be related according to GOOGLE’s understanding of relevant and related keywords. It’s not enough that WE think products are related to each other somehow; GOOGLE must agree. This requires serious keyword research. 

Sites that carry unrelated products (according to Google’s opinion of their keywords) on their pages do NOT rank in the search engines, and are doomed to the dreaded ECommerce Graveyard, where ineffective web sites go to die.

To be successful, a web site must work within a tightly related product NICHE. 

Bogus The Product Choice Imp goes by thousands of different names across the internet, telling people to go ahead and just slap some products up on a site to see what sells. Any successful online retailer will tell you that this is utterly ridiculous and will never work, but unfortunately Bogus The Product Choice Imp, in his many forms and with his many names, easily outnumbers those who try to tell you the truth. 

SO HOW DO YOU PROTECT YOURSELF?

According to legend (and Wikipedia!) Imps can be banished by the use of certain wards, weapons and enchantments. But don’t go messing with things supernatural…it’s a bad idea, especially around Halloween! You could get warts and stuff, or even worse. 

Your best defense against Bogus The Product Choice Imp is to IGNORE him. You need to locate REAL wholesale sources that provide tightly niched, well-rounded selections of wholesale products you can sell online. 

How do you find these REAL, tightly focused suppliers? The only way to be CERTAIN is to use a 100% REAL Wholesale and Drop Ship Directory. 

There’s only ONE. Worldwide Brands.

For 18 years, Worldwide Brands has been fighting this hidden battle against the evil ECommerce business-killers that go bump in the night, INCLUDING Imps of all kinds. We Certify wholesalers with a lengthy process that insures that every wholesaler we list is REAL. Then, just to be sure, we check in the closets and under the beds to be sure no Imps are lurking nearby. 

This Halloween, make sure that you’re not making critical Imp-inspired mistakes in YOUR online business. Get Worldwide Brands at a huge Halloween Discount, and spend your time selling LOTS of your tightly-niched products online.

How To Beat 5 Scary EBiz Wholesale Problems, Day 3

October 26th, 2017

Halloween…it’s that time of year again when they say the veil is thinnest between the good and evil forces of the world (oooohhh…scary!).

Whether Halloween is your bag of candy or it’s just another day to you, there are some TRULY scary forces at work in the Ecommerce wholesale industry that would curdle the blood of the most experienced tricksters. These forces work to damage the success of your ECommerce business EVERY DAY of the year, not just on Halloween.

So we thought we’d take this opportunity to show you how to get the TREAT for your EBiz this Halloween, instead of all the TRICKS.

Here’s Day 3: “Tardi The Time Bandit”

When it comes to Time Bandits, most people think of the 1981 movie by that name. Time Bandits, however, are actually sneaky little creatures that steal time, and hoard it for themselves. They’re selfish, and don’t care whether their thievery harms people. The REAL Time Bandits (the creatures, not the movie) don’t actually appear anywhere in mythological lore. They don’t want people to know they exist. So, any time someone sees them, they jump back in time and avoid that encounter. This is how they remain completely hidden, ALMOST completely unknown, and still steal time.

Tardi The Time Bandit is one of these creatures. He’s found a very lucrative feeding ground for stealing incredible amounts of time. What is it? Yup, you guessed it. The ECommerce business.

Many of Tardi’s fellow Time Bandits hide in the shadows and cause business owners to procrastinate, become distracted and so on, then they steal that time for themselves.

Tardi The Time Bandit, however, has sneakily invented a much better way to steal incredible amounts of time from both EBiz owners AND their customers.

It’s called “Drop Shipping from China”.

This is something that’s been touted recently as a wonderful new EBiz delivery method that saves money because you’re buying at wholesale directly from China and having the products delivered directly to your customers FROM China. Lots of so-called EBiz Marketers and ECommerce sales platforms are talking about what a wonderful idea this is. There are more and more Apps and Tools becoming available that allow you to drop ship directly from China.

Now, normally, the (very few!) REPUTABLE EBiz ‘gurus’ and site platforms would NEVER consider this to be a good idea. In fact, anybody who knows anything about ECommerce would laugh in your face if you told them that Drop Shipping from China was a good idea.

WHY? Here are a few reasons:

1. When you’re Drop Shipping direct from China, you have no guarantee of the QUALITY of the products you get. Your customers will often end up with cheap, flimsy knock-off products that bear very little resemblance to what you THINK you sold them. Scary!

2. There’s no guarantee that the product you sell will be delivered AT ALL. Scarier!

3. If the product is a cheap knock off, doesn’t look or work as advertised or doesn’t even show up, YOU, the EBiz owner, are on the hook for the REFUND. There is NO legal recourse between your US-based business and a Chinese company. If (and often WHEN) the product is lousy or doesn’t show up, you have to refund the customer, and you CAN’T do anything to make sure you get your money back from the “supplier”. Even scarier!

4. It takes WEEKS for products to be delivered when Drop Shipping from China!! No online shopper in his or her right mind is going to be okay with waiting 8, 10, 15, 20, 30 days or more for delivery! This should be completely obvious to ANYBODY, but these “gurus” and EBiz Apps and platforms don’t TELL you how long delivery takes because they know you won’t USE this silly method. SCARIEST!

Reason #4 (delivery time) is Tardi the Time Bandit’s ultimate goal. He steals incredible amounts of time from EBiz owners and their customers this way, and loves every minute that he steals and hoards for himself.

Again, NORMALLY, nobody in their right mind would take those kinds of risks and alienate their customers that way. But Tardi The Time Bandit has done a very good job of hiding in the background, whispering in people’s ears, and making them believe this is a good idea.

Whatever you do, DON’T let this nasty little creature whisper in YOUR ear and make you believe that Drop Shipping from China is a good idea. It isn’t, and never will be.

SO HOW DO YOU PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR BUSINESS?

First, NEVER let Tardi The Time Bandit know that you’ve learned about him here. He’ll just go back in time and delete this email from your Inbox before you get a chance to read it.

Second, NEVER allow anybody to tell you that Drop Shipping from China is a good idea, no matter WHAT Tardi The Time Bandit has told them to say to you.

You need to use Certified, Verified, REAL, responsible wholesale suppliers based here in the US. Real US-based wholesale suppliers sell top-quality products, will reimburse you for refunds for any reason, and will deliver QUICKLY to your ECommerce customers, which makes all the difference.

How do you find these REAL US-based suppliers? The only way to be CERTAIN is to use a 100% REAL Wholesale and Drop Ship Directory.

There’s only ONE. Worldwide Brands.

For 18 years, Worldwide Brands has been fighting this hidden battle against the evil ECommerce business-killers that go bump in the night, INCLUDING Time Bandits. We Certify wholesalers with a lengthy process that insures that every wholesaler we list is REAL. Then, just to be sure, we check them with a stopwatch to be certain there are no Time Bandits lurking nearby.

This Halloween, make sure that nothing is stealing time, money and customers from YOUR online business. Get Worldwide Brands at a huge Halloween Discount, and spend your time counting REAL profits for your EBiz.

If you want to make money online, you need the TREAT, not the Trick.

How To Beat 5 Scary EBiz Wholesale Problems, Day 2

October 24th, 2017

Halloween…it’s that time of year again when they say the veil is thinnest between the good and evil forces of the world (oooohhh…scary!).

Whether Halloween is your bag of candy or it’s just another day to you, there are some TRULY scary forces at work in the Ecommerce wholesale industry that would curdle the blood of the most experienced tricksters. These forces work to damage the success of your ECommerce business EVERY DAY of the year, not just on Halloween.

So we thought we’d take this opportunity to show you how to get the TREAT for your EBiz this Halloween, instead of all the TRICKS.

Here’s Day 2: “Vlad The Middleman”

According to legend, there are four different types of Vampires. Bat Vampires, Noble Vampires, Deformed Vampires and Reptile Vampires. They’re all evil, of course, but none of them are more evil than the most common fifth type of Vampire that’s never mentioned in the lore; the Wholesale Vampire.

Vlad The Middleman is a Wholesale Vampire. While historically the legends claim that vampires swoop out of the night and drink the blood of their unsuspecting victims, Vlad The Middleman is a vampire that sucks the profits out of ECommerce Businesses.

Sounds a little weird, we know. But is it any more weird than the rest of them sound, really?

Vlad The Middleman has thousands of brother and sister Wholesale Vampires. Instead of hiding in the darkness of night, they hide in plain site on the internet. They claim to be wholesale suppliers, but in reality they are just profit-suckers that have ACCOUNTS with real wholesale suppliers and PRETEND to be one. When your business gets hooked up with a Wholesale Vampire, you’re always paying an extra markup on your wholesale products, which hurts your profit margins.

You can’t run a business with a Wholesale Vampire supplying your products. There’s no money in it.

Vlad The Middleman and his compatriots are very good at this. They sound just like real wholesale companies. They advertise to you, they email you, they have toll-free phone numbers you can call. THEY LOOK REAL. If you’re running an EBiz right now, chances are you’ve come across Vlad or one of his relatives. In fact, you may even be working with one of them right NOW, and not know it.

That’s BAD. It’s very, very bad, and could easily be the reason you’re not seeing the wholesale profit margins you think you should in your online business.

Vlad The Wholesaler will often get together with other Wholesale Vampires and form “wholesale directory” companies. These are supposed to be directories of real wholesale companies that you can use to find products to sell online. Just like all the other Wholesale Vampires, they advertise, run webinars, write articles, use social media…they LOOK REAL.

Unfortunately, Vlad The Middleman has a scary long reach, and nearly ALL of those so-called wholesale directories are filled with his brother and sister Wholesale Vampires. That’s even WORSE; with those Wholesale Vampire Directories, you have NO WHERE to turn for real profit margins.

It’s absolutely critical that you NEVER let Vlad The Middleman and the Wholesale Vampire directories get their fangs into your business.

SO HOW DO YOU PROTECT YOURSELF?

Well, there are various charms and herbs that some people say will work against these creatures. But the only way to be CERTAIN that you’re not working with Wholesale Vampires is to use a 100% REAL Wholesale and Drop Ship Directory.

There’s only ONE. Worldwide Brands.

For 18 years, Worldwide Brands has been fighting this hidden battle against the evil Wholesale Vampires. We Certify wholesalers with a lengthy process that insures that every wholesaler we list is REAL. Then, just to be safe, we shine a flashlight on them as well. Wholesale Vampires are very sensitive to light; they don’t like to be exposed out in the open.

This Halloween, make sure that there are no money-sucking fangs biting into your wholesale profits. Get Worldwide Brands at a huge Halloween Discount, and shine the light on REAL profits for your EBiz.

If you want to make money online, you need the TREAT, not the Trick.

How To Beat 5 Scary EBiz Wholesale Problems, Day 1

October 23rd, 2017

Halloween…it’s that time of year again when they say the veil is thinnest between the good and evil forces of the world (oooohhh…scary!).

Whether Halloween is your bag of candy or it’s just another day to you, there are some TRULY scary forces at work in the Ecommerce wholesale industry that would curdle the blood of the most experienced tricksters. These forces work to damage the success of your ECommerce business EVERY DAY of the year, not just on Halloween.

So we thought we’d take this opportunity to show you how to get the TREAT for your EBiz this Halloween, instead of all the TRICKS.

Here’s Day 1: “Kill-O-Tron The Automated Product Feed”

“Kill-O-Tron The Automated Product Feed” lurks in the shadows of ECommerce. Like so many evil things hiding in ECommerce, it’s a Trickster; it makes everything look easy when it comes to sourcing products for your business, when in reality it sucks the life out of your business in several ways (bwahahahahaha!)

Being a Trickster, it hides behind many different names that seem benign and harmless, even inviting. It’s promoted by it’s minions as a solution for EBiz, but those evil minions know it’s just the opposite.

The only way to truly identify Kill-O-Tron in it’s many forms and names is to understand how it WORKS. We’ll start by talking about what the minions say that it DOES.

They say “Just use this App” or “Just connect to this system” that automatically populates products into your web site or online listings. Dozens, hundreds or even thousands of products you can sell online that AUTOMATICALLY get loaded into your web site or your online listings. You don’t have to upload the products, you don’t have to create descriptions, you don’t have to do ANYTHING; all these products will automatically show up and be ready to sell, and they’ll automatically update on a regular basis.

Wait…what? There LOTS of problems with that concept. However, just TWO of them should be enough to scare you away from Automated Product Feeds FOREVER.

LET’S TALK ABOUT THOSE TWO MAJOR PROBLEMS:

1. An Automated Product Feed loads tons of products into your EBiz WITHOUT any kind of Market Research. These feeds can push some decent products into your EBiz, but they also push tons of random products that the wholesalers and manufacturers SIMPLY WANT TO GET RID OF. So, they figure, why not use your EBiz as a dumping ground for things that they can’t sell otherwise?

No matter that you won’t sell them either; at least the junk products get exposure and SOME of them will sell, so it’s a partial win for the minions. But not for YOU.

2. Ever head of a little thing called Search Engine Optimization, or SEO for short? An important part of SEO is the wording and phrasing of your Product Descriptions. The search engines read through your Product Descriptions, and that has a lot to do with whether or not your EBiz will rank well in those search engines. Savvy EBiz Owners always REWRITE their Product Decsriptions to work well for SEO, because the standard Product Descriptions that come from manufacturers and wholesalers are LOUSY at SEO.

When you use an Automated Product Feed, the LOUSY Product Descriptions get dumped into your EBiz product pages. Can you rewrite them? Sometimes, but not always. It depends on what version of Kill-O-Tron The Automated Product Feed the minions sell you.

However, even if your version of Kill-O-Tron allows you to rewrite your Product Descriptions, it JUST DOESN’T MATTER. You can rewrite dozens, hundreds or thousands (if you have a couple of years to do it) of those Product Decriptions, but guess what happens next?

Kill-O-Tron The Automated Product Feed UPDATES every week or so. Every time it updates, ALL YOUR PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS AUTOMATICALLY GO BACK TO WHAT THEY WERE BEFORE YOU RE-WROTE THEM!!!

So you can NEVER maintain an EBiz that ranks well in the search engines, because all your hard work in SEO gets completely wiped out and reset to LOUSY every few days!

SO WHAT DO YOU DO TO AVOID THIS BIZ-KILLER?

Never ever ever EVER use an “automated feed” or any other kind of automated process that puts products in your site or on your listings. Don’t believe the evil minions that are looking to trick you into becoming a dumping ground for random lousiness that will doom your EBiz from the start.

HOW DO YOU DO IT RIGHT?

If you want to load products in your EBiz that sell, you start with real wholesale suppliers, you research your products, you make sure that they are all part of the same ‘niche’, and you load them and maintain them yourself. It’s the ONLY way to do it, no matter how many masked evildoers show up at your door and try to convince you otherwise.

WHERE DO YOU FIND THE TREAT, INSTEAD OF THE TRICKS?

For 18 years, Worldwide Brands has been the Industry Standard for REAL wholesale and drop shipping products and suppliers. In fact, every Halloween, all the Tricksters in this business put on their Worldwide Brands Masks and start ringing doorbells, PRETENDING to do what we do.

But they don’t. They charge monthly fees, hidden costs, list substandard and often fake wholesalers, and always have an attic full of 10 year old bad candy to sell you later.

Only WE do what we do best.

FedEx Rate Increases – What it Means for Dropshipping

September 21st, 2017

FedEx recently announced that on January 1, 2018, they will raise their shipping rates for various services including; FedEx Express, FedEx Ground & FedEx Freight.

These rate changes are as follows:

  • FedEx Express, FedEx Home Delivery, FedEx Ground & FedEx Express: 4.9% average increase
  • FedEx One: 3.5% increase

Then on January 22, 2018, there will be some additional fees:

  • Third Party Billing Surcharge will apply to FedEx Express & FedEx Ground shipments that are billed to a third party.
  • Additional cost for packages that require extra handling, that are oversized, or unauthorized.
  • FedEx SmartPost will add dimensional weight prices
  • FedEx Freight will add an over length surcharge of $85.00 per shipment for packages that are 8ft or greater and less than 12ft in dimension.

You can see more information about this on FedEx’s site here: http://www.fedex.com/us/shipping-rates/

FedEx hasn’t indicated WHY they have  added these pricing increases, but from research, it’s to stay in competition with UPS who also did these types of increases in 2016.

The increases to take note of for dropshipping retailers, is the third party billing surcharge of 2.5% that takes effect 1/22/2018.  Due to the increase in third party billed transactions because of dropshipping, this is a fee that UPS has been collecting for a few years now so FedEx is just staying in stride with UPS.

Third party billing is when a shipping fee is paid by someone other than the sender or the receiver of the delivery. So a dropshipping supplier that is using your FedEx account information to charge shipping fees to, that’s third party billing and you can expect to see the 2.5% fee.

So make sure to make note of these extra shipping fees & plan for them starting January 1st because they will impact your business!
