This past week I added a few new products and shipped 78 items to Amazon FBA compared to just 12 the week prior. I’m staying the course on my strategy to test my way to success by adding a small amount of products to Amazon FBA, see if they sell, and then scale the operation.
I’m testing three new products – Organic Raisins, Organic Prunes, and Barney Butter Crunchy. The organic prunes and organic raisins are manufactured half a mile from my house so I was able to order small amount of product wholesale rather than pallets. I highly recommend starting by buying product from local manufacturers who will sell you small amounts of product at wholesale prices. Last week I sent in Barney Butter Smooth, so this week I added Barney Butter Crunchy.
Creating custom multi-packs requires that you put a sticker on the pack indicating not to separate them. I ordered pre-made labels off of Amazon so I wouldn’t have to waste time and money creating labels. Also, it made it easier to pull labels off of a pre-made roll. I bought 1,000 labels, so those should last for a while.
I also ordered 100 plastic poly bags that have a self-seal. These bags are light and make it easy to create multi-packs. Last week I used boxes to create multi-packs. Boxes don’t weigh very much, but weigh considerably more than poly bags. Using bags allowed me to ship more product with less weight.
