Hey, army!

We are on step 4 already! I really do hope you are religiously following the steps because if you don’t, I’m not sure how it’ll turn out if you miss to do a step. But anyway, in this blog post I am going to teach you the fourth step in our Amazon  Quarter 1 Prep, which is the Survival Mode.

If you’re not strong enough, selling in Amazon may not be for you. Amazon may be one of the most strict and rigid selling platform ever but it’s the most rewarding. There are other selling platforms you can go to like Shopify, but let me tell you why it’s best to sell in Amazon. Once you got over and survive quarter 1, you will go a long way with your Amazon business for the rest of the year.

It is expected to be getting lower sales for this quarter. People just spent a whole lot during fourth quarter because of the holidays so getting lower sales is normal. How do you prepare your store for this drop in sales though? Read on below:

  • Have a SALE! Most people just couldn’t resist a sale, so be competitive and drop your prices so that people will buy from you instead of purchasing from other stores.
  • Shape up your business module. Since you wouldn’t be as busy as you would be during the fourth quarter, use this time to focus on other things like getting inventory into FBA or improving the look of your store by uploading high-res images for your products.
  • Lock in your other streams of income. Look into your other streams of income by putting it in place or by improving it.

This season is just a phase, it’ll pass! Be strong enough to survive it! Do you have any other tips and strategies to survive quarter 1? Share your thoughts below!
