we went to China MANY times…over YEARS!
We began to build strong relationships and trust with vendors, factories, sourcing agents, logistics companies, bartenders, restaurant owners, hotel managers, and anyone else who could help us learn the most effective way to do business in China!
We have built a deep and strong network of relationships which we are willing to share with you. When we say deep, we mean people HUG us…and the Chinese are not know for hugging. How did we do this? Years of treating folks fairly, doing honest business, and genuinely caring about creating mutually beneficial relationships with our connections. So, what does this allow us to do? Well, we now have an UNLIMITED supply of items to add to our listing catalogs allowing us to scale infinitely…in fact we couldn’t possibly exhaust this supply in a HUNDRED YEARS because the number of items available is SO VAST.
So, if we have found such a great source, why would we share with you? Simple…statistically, the odds of you finding one of our exact products and launching it to compete with us are less than getting struck by lightning while holding a jellyfish and riding on the back of a three-legged elephant. There are just TOO MANY PRODUCTS out there for us to worry about it. These products are easily customized, replenishable (no more running out of an RA item because TJ Maxx doesn’t have any more) and perhaps the most important point is that we can access millions of items in SMALL QUANTITIES for testing (No more MOQ’s in the thousands). We have used this exact method to find, test, and scale 2 separate branded product lines (along with tons of other random successful products outside of a true brand) of items which were NEW TO AMAZON when we launched them! Best of all? We now have 6 month terms with suppliers, favorable pricing (40% lower than Alibaba on average), and unlimited customization ability from our suppliers because of the relationships we have built with them! Also, we started these product lines and relationships by buying just 50 or maybe 100 units of each item! Super small investment!
