Have you ever wanted to run your own online business, but you weren’t sure what to expect or how to get started? The incredible thing about the online world is that you don’t need to be a big, recognizable brand yourself, nor do you need to develop and produce your own unique products. You can leverage all the systems that are already in place and start turning a considerable profit, but you need to know how to do it. And that’s what Marketplace SuperHeroes (MPSH) are all about.
The guys over at MPSH focus on helping their members create a 5-7 figure income stream selling low-competition, high-profit items on Amazon. And the cool thing is, they don’t just teach people to sell in the US – they work on “multiplying” sales and profits, by selling products in the US, UK and Europe, making this a global business model.
A Step-By-Step Comprehensive Guide
Approaching the world of online business can feel daunting and intimidating at first, and rightfully so. But that’s why Marketplace SuperHeroes was developed. Their flagship Core 2.0 Program is an online video course that you can follow, one step at a time, and get yourself moving towards building a successful, sustainable business that continues to make money while you sleep.
When you sign up to The MPSH Core 2.0 Program, you gain access to a number of different products, including Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the Core 2.0 Program, as well as a number of bonus products such as Fuel Your Empire, The 1K Per Day Roadmap, Invincible Importing, and 30 Minute Legendary Listings. For the purposes of this review, we’ll focus mostly on MPSH Core 2.0 Program (Phase 1).
This is where you really get started with the Marketplace SuperHeroes Core Program. It has been divided into six convenient modules, that you make your way through, taking action after each module. Don’t skip any, as each module builds upon the one that came before it, and so forth. There are also helpful building blocks at the end of each module, to make sure you’re ready to move onto the next one. Realistically, you can start your business at any time, building on the knowledge and guidance as you make your way through the program.
As you open the first module, you’ll see that it is further subdivided into a number of parts. Each part comes with a brief write-up, along with a main video. Most videos are around 10 minutes in length, making them easily digestible. Conveniently, audio versions and transcripts are also available for reference, in addition to the videos themselves.
A Closer Look at Module 1
The basic structure of module 1 is mirrored throughout the rest of the MPSH Core Program. The introductory video in each module gives you some sense of what you can expect to learn in that module. That’s also where you’re introduced to your hosts.
After the introduction, you dive into the first video in the module. For example, for this first module, we learn about how you can get the most out of the system. The video course is largely structured like a PowerPoint presentation with voiceover narration. The presentation can include screenshots and screencasts, as well as more basic text-based slides as part of the deck.
At the root of it, Marketplace SuperHeroes is training you to be a successful global seller on Amazon, selling products that you can reliably source and resell in Amazon’s online marketplace. The objective here is not to become a big brand yourself or to grow into a massive company that requires significant management. Instead, it’s about creating a business and system that can generate reliable profit, day after day, from the comfort of your home, on your own schedule.
The videos explain why Robert and Stephen believe that Amazon is the ideal environment for such a business, like how it already has such a strong brand presence and how customers know they’ll get quality support. Each module wraps up with a longer analysis video where the guys provide a deeper dive into the content. Think of it like a post-show discussion or podcast episode about a TV show or movie you just watched.
Key Concepts to Begin
I won’t dive too much into the finer details here, as you really need to make your own way through the entire course to appreciate how much you can learn and apply to your own business. However, I will touch on a couple of key concepts that provide a sort of framework for the type of Amazon business you can expect to build by following this blueprint.
First, they describe the Rule of Five. If you can decide on five products that you can sell in five countries, selling five units per country per day at a $5 net profit per unit, you’re well on your way to online success. That works out to $18,750 per month or $225,000 per year. Remember that this is net profit, not total revenue. The Rule of Five really illustrates the power of multiplication and simple scale. They also mention that you should look for at least a 30% profit margin (they call it POR, or Profit on Return) for the products you choose to sell.
Another key concept is what they call the B.E.S.T. product strategy. This describes how you should go about choosing which products you want to sell. B.E.S.T. stands for Boring, Established, Scalable, and Tangible. In other words, you’re not looking for trendy products that could be a flash in the pan or brand new products that have not yet been adequately tested in the market. Instead, boring is best. These are the products that people will keep buying, outlasting fly-by-night trends.
The 4S Product Gauntlet
Another huge component to how Marketplace SuperHeroes guides your path to building a successful online business is the 4S Product Gauntlet. The 4S’s stands for Search, Shortlist, Select, and Source, and it’s the four-step process that goes into deciding which products you should sell on Amazon and how to get them. This ties into the related tool, which accompanies the online course.
As you can see in the provided screenshot here, the navigation is simple and logical to follow. The four “S” steps are all listed along the left column, so you can work your way through them one by one. There’s also a “Goals” tab at the top for working out some of the numbers you’d like to achieve. For the 4S, it’s easy enough to add products to your list for research purposes.
Remember that product research is an ongoing process, so while the starting objective is the Rule of Five, recognize that there is always room for improvement and refinement too. The videos explain how the 4S Product Gauntlet works, as well as how you can implement that strategy using the provided tool.
Become a Best Seller
This is all just the tip of the iceberg. As you work your way through Phase 1 of Marketplace SuperHeroes Core 2.0 Program and into Phase 2, you’ll be guided through a series of other concepts and frameworks. These include business structure, purchasing and importing, listing optimization, and international expansion. It’s critically important to understand these sorts of logistical matters, as they are part and parcel of running a successful online business.
Marketplace SuperHeroes really is a comprehensive guide to starting your own Amazon seller business. You are provided with hours of video content presented in a format that’s easy to follow and understand. It’s just up to you to put those lessons into action.
