Hello Team REAL coaches,
I tried posting my questions for this upcoming Office Hours coaching session last night and it wouldn’t go through for some reason, and the forum seemed to be a bit buggy. So I’m going to try this again.
I have two questions that I would like some help with, as follows:
1. First, I really need a second set of eyes to help me determine if my product is a keeper or a dud. Long story short, I’ve been selling it for around two years now and I’m on my third inventory order. And I’ve still yet to make a decent profit. I’m currently getting next to no sales, but that’s because I paused all of my PPC campaigns awhile ago because I was losing a lot of money from Amazon fees and lack of sales shortly after the whole COVID-19 thing started. Anyway, I’m currently in the process of optimizing my product listing, photos, and PPC. And I believe I can hopefully make things work once I get all of this done and give it another shot. And while I’ve completed both the Analyzing Your Existing Products and How to Deal with a Dud Product lessons, I just need another set of eyes to look everything over for me. Love is blind and I’m in love with this product and don’t want to let it go! And I just want to make sure that my emotional attachment to the product isn’t clouding my judgement. Anyway, here are links to both my Existing Product Cash Analyzer, as well as my product listing on Amazon:
As you look at all of this, please also take the following into consideration when helping me make a decision:
2. Here’s my second question. Awhile back, I found some information on Seller Central (can’t remember where) and they recommended I do this new thing they were offering, where I can replace the need for an Amazon label and just use my UPC label as the SKU. In order to do this, I had to create another listing with the new SKU, which I did. So essentially, I have two listings. The one with the UPC label as the new SKU is “inactive” since I haven’t reordered inventory yet and linked it to that listing. However, I don’t know why, but I’m feeling a bit uneasy about this and don’t know what to do. Should I use this new method/listing going forward with my UPC label replacing the Amazon label? I was doing it to try to save an extra .20 or so per label that Amazon charges. But is it worth it? Please advise me on what I should do here. And if I should be doing this, do I just close the other listing once I start using the new one?
P.S. I may not be able to be physically present for the Office Hours coaching call tomorrow, due to work commitments. But I will try my very best to be there!
