Introducing…

The Amazon FBA Mastermind: How to Start, Run and Profit from Your Own Amazon Business

Sound too good to be true? I thought so too, until one day this past summer when I had a conversation with someone who turned my idea of what business and marketing had to be completely upside down! But I’m getting ahead of things…I’ll tell you the story of that meeting and exactly what I learned in just a minute. But first, please allow me to introduce myself…

You see, I’m no stranger to the world of business and online marketing. I’m Dr. Ellen Britt and during the last decade, I’ve taught over a thousand hours of online classes, produced and sold scores of information products, hosted a dozen telesummits and have interviewed hundreds of the most well-known names in self-development and marketing.

I’m also an instructor at the NAMS Conference (Novice to Advanced Marketing System) in Atlanta and it was here, just this past August, where I had the conversation that turned my business brain upside down… a conversation that almost didn’t happen!

The Conversation That Turned My Business Brain Completely Upside Down!

Blue Brain

I had just gone out to my car to start the drive home after the last day at NAMS. Sliding into the front seat, I did a last minute check to make sure I had everything and, sure enough, discovered I had left my iPhone’s headset in the NAMS ballroom. Heading back down the hotel’s main hallway, I ran into Christine Cobb, a respected online business consultant and WordPress web designer who I had known for several years.

Of course I stopped for a minute to chat with Christine and to catch up on how she was doing in her business. She told me that besides her usual consulting and web design, about two and a half years ago she had started to sell on Amazon. She liked it and found she was good at it. So good in fact, that friends and colleagues kept asking her to do a course on it.

But as much as she would have liked to oblige them, putting together courses was just not her thing… A light bulb went on in my head. Maybe putting together and marketing online courses wasn’t Christine’s specialty, but it was certainly mine!

That’s exactly what I had been doing for over a decade and not to toot my own horn too much, but I’m pretty good at it. So I asked Christine to tell me more about what she was doing. As she spoke, I became more and more intrigued…

The Question That Changed Everything

And then I asked Christine a simple question…a question that would change everything… I asked her how much she was making from selling on Amazon.

And then quietly and without fanfare, this is what she told me…

“Ellen, I’m grossing over $300,000 in sales on Amazon a year.”

To say I was surprised is the understatement of the year.

“What did you say?” I responded, “You’re telling me you are selling three hundred thousand dollars worth of products on Amazon a year?!” Christine affirmed that she was doing exactly that. She went on to clarify.

“Now don’t misunderstand. I am selling three hundred thousand dollars worth of products for Amazon every year. That’s in gross sales but of course, I don’t keep nearly that much. There are expenses to every business and this is no exception. And of course, Amazon claims a healthy chunk of that money.”

Somewhat disappointed, I thought to myself. Oh, ok. This is one of those businesses where you can’t make any real money. But I just had to find out what was possible. “Well ok Christine, I understand that. Would you mind telling me how much of that you are keeping for yourself?”

Now you have to understand something. Christine is a straight shooter, a CPA who is retired from the financial services industry, a no nonsense person who tells it like it is. She doesn’t embellish, brag or exaggerate. So when Christine told me what she is making I know it to be the truth.

“I’m making a comfortable mid-four figures a month.” “I see. And how long did it take you to get to that level?” “I started in January, two and a half years ago. I reached the mid-four figure mark in December the same year I started. And I’m confident I can grow my income even larger.”

A Whole New Business Model

I was stunned. Christine’s ability to generate a regular mid-four figure extra monthly income for herself from an online business in just twelve months that didn’t require her to market or even ship her products to her customers, that allowed her to work from home and didn’t even require a website was far removed from the online business models I was used to.

And please understand that Christine was completely self-taught. What would be possible for someone who had access to Christine’s level of knowledge and skill about selling on Amazon?

Online marketing of products and services is not easy. Even the most successful marketers have to constantly create new products and services, and must constantly market those same products to an ever changing audience. Plus, staying on top of the latest trends in social media, email marketing, list building tactics and product delivery is always a challenge and can nearly be a full time job in itself.

Not to mention the fact that income for most marketers can be maddeningly inconsistent. Some months are great, but others can be bone dry. The ability to generate a regular, consistent mid-four figures in extra income the way Christine was doing it was very, very appealing.

As Christine and I talked, we began to think of our students, our clients and our colleagues. I thought of family members; a cousin who is a nurse but who had hurt her back and could no longer work in her profession, a dear friend who has a disabled child she cares for at home.

And Christine thought of all the people who had pleaded with her to make this knowledge available. We thought about how this extra, regular monthly income would help these families: savings for a child’s college, paying off medical expenses, taking that long overdue vacation or something else entirely!

So after much planning, here’s what we’re doing…I’m bringing my online instruction, interviewing, teaching and masterminding skills and combining those with Christine’s proven ability to start and run a profitable Amazon business.

Together we are taking a select group of students, both women and men, through a live four-module course, our Amazon FBA Mastermind which starts August 10th. (FBA stands for Fulfilled By Amazon.)

Christine Cobb - Amazon FBA Expert

The course consists of 4 weeks (actually 5 weeks if you get in on the advanced *Bonus Module) of step-by-step instructional content (see exactly what you’ll be learning in each weekly Module below) delivered via teleconference call (and recorded if you can’t make it) available in your private member’s area, plus an exclusive private Facebook group where you can network, get help and receive feedback from the other participants in this course.

And unlike a lot of courses who use private Facebook groups for their participants, because our Amazon FBA Mastermind is built on a Lifetime Membership model, the Facebook group will not be taken down after the calls are done, but will continue to be available for you as a permanent resource.

You’ll not only have access to Christine’s proven Amazon FBA knowledge through this series of live teleconference calls which will be facilitated by me, they will all be followed by live Q&A and supported by comprehensive written instructional materials and visuals.

Each Module will have clear, easy to understand homework and if you follow Christine’s instructions, by the end of the course you will be completely ready to launch your Amazon selling business by the start of the profitable holiday selling season beginning in early fall.

Our private Facebook community will help you build connections to other people just like you who are building an Amazon FBA business from scratch. This will be a safe place to share your insights, ask questions and get help when you need it… all facilitated in my signature relaxed, laid-back Southern manner that will immediately put you at ease and make you a part of our Pink Coattails Amazon FBA Mastermind family. And here’s the best part… FBCoverMagnolia I’ve combined my expertise in online course creation with Christine’s proven system for becoming a successful, professional seller on Amazon. Together, we are committed to taking you from a total novice to being ready to open the doors to your Amazon FBA business by the end of this course.

If you follow Christine’s instructions, by the end of the course you will launch your Amazon selling business by sending in your first shipment of inventory and finish 2016 in high gear!

And here’s something else I found out from Christine…

I Was Totally Mistaken About Selling On Amazon

I always thought selling on Amazon meant you had to actually get out there and physically shop in stores…rummaging through bins of marked down merchandise, loading it into your car, hauling it into your house, packing it up and sending it off to Amazon.

Wrong!

Turns out, that’s only one way to do it. And while actually going out shopping appeals to a lot of folks, it was a deal breaker for me. But then Christine told me there was an entirely different way to sell on Amazon…the way she actually does it now.

You source all of your products online, you have them shipped to a third party who specializes in Amazon sales and they package your products and send them to Amazon. You never even have to touch the product! Christine has done both, is completely knowledgeable about both methods and is going to teach both ways in the course.

Here’s just a taste of the delicious learning that is in store for you: Screen Shot 2014-04-27 at 1.07.29 PM

What Our Students Are Saying

When first I listened to Ellen Britt and Christine Cobb discussing their brand new course, The Amazon FBA Mastermind, I instantly connected with their warmth and Christine’s vast Amazon knowledge and experience.  I immediately knew that this was the program for me.

With Christine’s expert guidance, I worked through the classes and sent in my first shipment a week before the last class. On the day of the last class, I was so excited to report my very first sale of $125.00 and it’s never stopped since. It sometimes amazes me that I am a seller on Amazon….I mean….How cool is that? I love this business and could not have done it without the help of Christine and Ellen!

I’m already making money from the info I learned in this course, and you can, too! There’s a lot to learn about Amazon FBA, but Christine Cobb digs into it with clarity and detail, as her class notes are well organized and complete and are a resource I can return to again and again.

The live class calls get your questions answered and beginners will especially love how patient she is!

 Taking this class has been one of the most rewarding business decisions I’ve ever made! Everything I needed to know about the process of getting started and building a cash-cow business as an Amazon Seller was thoroughly covered in detail and with clarity.

Just three short months after becoming an FBA seller, my sales and profits have soared higher than I could have imagined. And the best part is this business has NO limit on possibilities. The support with answered questions and gentle guidance have been outstanding.

Every day, as the sales roll in, I am extremely pleased with my decision to learn from Christine.  There is no ‘fluff’ in this class; rather, a path to unlimited growth and profits.

Some of the courses out there claiming to teach you how to sell on Amazon are charging an astounding four-thousand dollars for their information.

Both Christine and I have built our business reputations on transparency, honesty and integrity and we are not about to change the way we work now. We will always be up front and honest with you and will never advocate cheating or trying to ‘bend’ Amazon’s rules.
