My name is Henrique Coura, and I am an entrepreneur who works and lives in Brazil.
I am currently working totally online and solely in activities carried out in the United States.
My online business is based on buying and selling physical products on the internet.
I am an intermediary in buying and selling products.
I buy at the wholesale price and resell at the retail price, and with that I get my profit.
I use [url removed, login to view] to accomplish my sales.
I'm a registered Amazon Seller. I can sell several product categories on Amazon. There are only a few categories of products that I do not work for.
How my business Works?
The first thing I do is a search for Distributors of products on the internet. I can look for Manufacturers too but the main focus initially are the distributors.
I do the research through GOOGLE.
I search for TradeShows and specific class associations.
In this research when I find a specific TradeShow I look for the exhibitors.
Once I find them I do an advanced search for the Distributors that are among these exhibitors.
With this I have a List of Distributor sites.
In this list I will go to the site of each of the distributors and through the contact information of their website I will contact them.
The most effective way is through a phone call although some websites already have a form to be filled for this purpose.
The purpose of this call I make for distributors is to open an account so that I can buy the products that they are selling.
I need to open this account so they send me a Spreadsheet with the data of all the products they have.
This Spreadsheet must be in EXCELL and must contain at least the following fields:
UPC(Bar Code Number), SKU(Distributer code number), Product price, Product name and MAP (Minimum Advertising Price).
I need this spreadsheet because with that I will get the data of each product so that I can decide which product will be interesting for me to be able to buy and then resell with profit on Amazon.
I have a Software that performs this research for me because some distributors have thousands of SKUs (products) and it would be humanly impossible to do this task without this software.
What do I expect from you as my virtual assistant?
I need a US-based person who speaks good English, be polite, friendly and persuasive.
Initially I will do the distributors search myself, and I will send you the distributor websites I chose.
So that you can call each company and create an account. Then you will ask for the Spreadsheet with the data of all the products they have.
I will send you all the data that distributors request to open my reseller accounts.
- I'll arrange a phone line for you to use.
- I will arrange an email account so you can send and receive email from the distributors. We both have access to this email account, okay?
To help and better explain how you should get the job done I have an audio link for you to base it on.
In addition, I have in PDF some specific guidelines on the common questions and answers that we will make when calling distributors.
I initially thought of hiring the period from 5 hours per week and depending on the return on investment I would need more hours.
It would be a lasting partnership.
