Back in 2011 I decided to experiment with selling on Amazon. I started with a modest $200 worth of product and reinvested profits from the sale of those products back into the business over and over again. At the start of all this I was heavily engaged in retail arbitrage and then quickly move to online arbitrage.
In 2016 I made the move to mostly wholesale and my own product line with a bit of online arbitrage mixed in.
In early 2017 I began trading options in the stock markets after some heavy “schooling”. One of the things that struck me almost immediately were the strong correlations between the financial markets and selling on Amazon. More precisely, how all the numbers play out over time and what strategy should be used to maximize profitability.
Suddenly my entire perception of selling physical goods online changed from a “product centered” approach to more of an investment strategy approach. I quit seeing from the perspective of selling “things” to that of building small cash-flows that produced a residual compounding of my investment capital.
I call this “The Amazon Trading Game” but since these principles are true for most businesses (online and off) that deal with the sale of physical goods you might call this trading without the volatility of the stock market. Unlike the stock market physical goods hold their value over time and don’t see massive volatile swings in price.
Based on this it’s not uncommon to see stable ROIs that exceed 40% or higher on a monthly basis. Compound this annually and you can really see explosive growth of your invested capital.
This website is my attempt to convey what I have learned and what I will learn from my explorations on these matters.
More precisely, this website should be seen as a tool leading to an advanced understanding that would allow a small seller to advance to a million dollar or multi-million dollar seller without need for additional cash outlay. The seller can easily use the rules and laws of finance to accelerate the growth of their business while the business finances its own growth.
