THE BIG IDEA
READY TO HIT 6-FIGURE AMAZON DAYS?
One of the most common questions people ask about selling online is, “can you make 6-figures selling on Amazon?”
Nate and Andy originally had this question as well.
And when they started their latest brand, they dreamed of the day they would hit 6-figure sales months.
Well, not long ago they were able to not only hit 6-figure months consistently… Their Amazon brand generated over $350,000 in just a day!
It was one of those “Thank God we’re in the right business” moments.
Here’s some of the advice they laid out: one of them is this…
- Put in the work ahead of time: This one is obvious, but it took Andy and Nate thousands of hours and years of work building their brand before they hit their first 6-figure sales day. Put in the work and position yourself to be in the right spot to get lucky.
- Forecasting is critical: If you aren’t currently, Nate and Andy recommend that you do weekly forecasting on your inventory. They meet with their inventory team every week to go over sales from the past week, any changes in the supply chain and whether they feel the original sales projections they had made are still accurate.
- Consider alternative shipping methods: Andy and Nate had always shipped by boat for their main products… but when they hit a period of extreme sales, they realized they could still come out ahead (and avoid months of out of stock) by air shipping. If your margins allow and it avoid long periods of out of stock, consider other shipping methods – or get creative.
Set yourself up for good problems!
CHECK YOUR STORAGE!

TRIBE SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK:
How Did This Couple Almost Quit Amazon in 2020 Reached The Gold Lanyard Status in 2021?
In this week’s tribe spotlight, we are celebrating the success of a power couple, Drew & Morgan! ple, Drew & Morgan!
They met in 2015 and fell madly in love with each other. The following year in 2016, they got married. Morgan wanted to quit her job because she no longer wanted to be trapped in the rat cycle of the corporate world. Drew supported her decision and continued to work in a pharmaceutical company to provide for their family’s needs.
In the middle of 2016, Morgan discovered Amazon and she happily shared with Drew the opportunity that changed their lives forever. They started looking for used books during their date nights on book sales and yard sales and sold them on Amazon.
By the end of 2016, they made $7,000. The following year, they started looking for books on community colleges. They increased their inventory from dozen of books to hundreds of them. They ended 2017 by making 10x of the revenue generated the previous year, which was $80,000.
The following year, Drew decided to leave his job to go all-in in their Amazon business and also to pursue his dream of becoming a minister. Morgan supported Drew and the both of them continued to work hard into growing their Amazon business. By end of 2018, they made $160,000. They did the same thing in 2019 and made $300,000 in total.
It looked like they struck gold and they were on their way up into building a business that could give them all the time and freedom that they wanted. But, in 2020, something unexpected happen, which almost completely ruined them…
In the middle of September 2020, they got hit by 5 inauthentic claims and a 72-hour notice through their Amazon performance notifications. They were able to fix the notice but not the claims. Then, Amazon confiscated more than 5,000 books in their inventory and placed them in a reserved quarantine status. This meant that customers could no longer place any orders for these books.
As a result, they ended their 2020 Q4 with ZERO sales. All seemed hopeless. It took them many long nights before finally making a decision about the future of their Amazon business.siness.
They were ready to quit Amazon forever.
In a last ditch effort, they joined the Amazon Seller Tribe because some other book sellers they knew were in the group…
And had successfully transitioned from book selling to arbitrage selling.
They hopped right into Tribe coaching and attended a live event in Springfield Missouri.
Nate Slamans still remembers meeting them in person and seeing the hopelessness in their eyes as they struggled with what to do next.
Well, they took everything they learned from Tribe coaching and gave it their all. They hit the ground running with arbitrage and in 2021…
They hit over $1,000,000 in sales!!
As you can see, having a support system that you can rely on can make a huge difference in your Amazon journey.

Show, Don’t Tell – Sometimes All You Need is Pictures
Most people think that you always need to have a lot of words in your website to convey your brand’s promise to your customers.
But, sometimes, all you need is to show them what happens through pictures.
One brand that does this in a good way is the clothing brand GoodThreads. Instead of saying their clothes are fabulous, they focused on showing what their clothes look like when worn.
If you are creating a new Storefront, or your current one needs a redesign, check out GoodThreads to see if you can pick up some best practices.
