What is the Proven Amazon Course?
Naturally, the Proven Amazon Course (PAC) is a course about how to sell on Amazon. 🙂
I purchased the course back in March 2015 and am very impressed with all of the information that it contains. I believe that every Seller of any level can benefit from the course.
It’s different than other courses / training programs because rather than it being one linear course that starts with Lesson 1 and ends with Lesson 30, it’s a compilation of numerous different Amazon courses and topics:
What’s neat is that once you’re a member, you’ll have free access to new courses and materials. It usually takes several months for the new material to be added to PAC though. If the new course excites you and you want to start learning it right away, you can purchase it when it first comes out.
Though the PAC focuses on Amazon, the founder, Jim Cockrum wants us to look beyond Amazon and build up multiple income streams. This way it won’t hurt so much if your Amazon Selling career suddenly comes to an end.
Two Mistakes that I made with PAC and Other Courses
For those of you that have been reading my blog posts, you’ll notice that I have purchased numerous courses and have constantly changed my focus over time:
April 30, 2014: Signed up as a Seller -> started with selling items around the house & thrift store finds -> focused on RA and setting up my business and bookkeeping system -> learned bundles -> went back to OA -> switched back to RA -> focused primarily on toys -> focused on shoes -> started learning wholesale & learning how to train my helper -> switched back to OA -> 2 Year Amazon FBA Anniversary on April 30th!
Yikes, a lot of jumping around. I feel like that I know a little bit of everything, but I’m a master of none.
If I could go back in time, I would have:
- Laser-Focused on only one sourcing method or strategy until I learned it well before moving on to the next.
- Created and documented a system that I could use to easily train a person to take over the task(s) that I mastered so that I could laser-focus on something new.
So, if you are the lucky winner or if you buy PAC on your own, I recommend that you choose one topic/course and learn it well. Try not to become overwhelmed with information overload and don’t jump from one course to the next (like I did).
After doing some serious thinking, I will no longer continue with pursuing wholesale accounts at this time. My current priority is to build up my shoe inventory. Once I’m satisfied with that, then I will shift my focus back to wholesale.
PAC Giveaway Details
The Giveaway is over. Congratulations to Karen G for winning!!
Now for the part that you’ve been waiting for… how to win a PAC Membership!
For disclosure, I didn’t purchase a 2nd copy of PAC. I actually won it last year when I entered a giveaway that was announced in Jim Cockrum’s My Silent Team Facebook group. But since I already had a copy of it, I never “redeemed” it. A few weeks ago, I emailed Jim Cockrum’s Support Team and asked if I could give away my copy to someone else. They said yes!
