Cynthia Stine Poses the Question “Is Arbitrage Dead?” In this post we will discuss this question. But before we do I want to clarify a few things.
I do not know everything about selling on Amazon, and I am constantly learning new things all the time. Matter of fact if anyone tells you they know everything there is to selling on Amazon, I wouldn't believe them. Amazon changes things all the time and well it is their sand box so they can.
I like Cynthia Stine, we are acquaintances on Facebook. I follow her blog and recommend her book that she entitled Suspension Prevention. And I respect her as a Amazon Seller. Cynthia has helped many sellers who have lost their selling privileges on Amazon get them back. If I where to find myself in this position I would use her services.
Now let's talk about me for a minute and what I have already done in this post. Because you know it is all about me, she (yes I just referred to myself in the third person) says with a little sarcasm… I make no bones about it I am an Affiliate Marketer and I have already marketed to you in this post with my amazon affiliate link to her book.
You could say I have been around the block when it comes to Internet Marketing/Marketers and promoting their products as an affiliate for them.
Now as a self respecting affiliate marketer who has a blog that wants traffic to her site and to convert that traffic in to some cash… I get why Cynthia writes these posts. It is our job as content creators promoting products and services to provide a sense of urgency.
Traffic to your blog translates into money if the content converts. By using this tactic of inciting fear and pandemonium this gets the traffic to her website. Then she sprinkles through it offers, which any good affiliate marketer or internet marketer would do. Offers to her services that she uses to help you and how she can solve your problem. Which she created the perceived problem your having by writing the post. Then sending out the email and creating this mass panic in the Amazon Seller community, now she appears to be the solution you need (in most cases she is the solution you need when you seller account is suspended) and all you have to do to get relief is to exchange currency with her.
It is the basic fundamental foundation as I summarize a quote from Jason Fladlien … “One Problem, One Solution Product.”
This is my theory as to why Cynthia writes posts like this particular one – Amazon Seller News You Can Use – Is Arbitrage Dead?
Now on to what she has insinuated is going to happen. Until the sky is really falling and I see Chicken Little aka Amazon saying the sky is falling and I can no longer sell Retail Arbitrage or Online Arbitrage via my seller account on their platform then I am not going to let FEAR – False Evidence Appearing Real stop or cripple my business.
I am going to keep growing it, with retail and online arbitrage, adding wholesale accounts and products to my stores catalog. Sending in quality products in good condition and meeting all of Amazon requirements.
Until Amazon revokes my permission to sell and play in their sand box I have work to do!
Retail Arbitrage is not dead. The Amazon's seller app is specifically for scanning retail arbitrage. Amazon's 3rd party sellers make up 40% of their sales. There is more I could say on this but who has time, when they could be out sourcing profitable arbitrage.
Now back to the affiliate marketing when I promote someone, my main goal is to make sure the product I am promoting will benefit the person who purchased it. That if they put into action what they will learn from the service, product, or course they will enjoy a return on their investment. Let me reiterate here that Cynthia would definitely be my go to if my Amazon Account was in jeopardy, but why wait until you are in jeopardy when she has already given us a tool “Suspension Prevention.”
You had to know it was coming? What you ask? More of my affiliate links… Click Here and you will be taken to my Amazon Seller Resource Page. This page contains courses and guides from Amazon Sellers that I myself have learned from, meaning I have purchased their products and put into practice what they have taught.
