Pack A Powerful Punch

By us focusing on just 3 of the many powerful strategies in the Book Arbitrage business these small but systematically used techniques have had a powerful impact on our ongoing business.

To accelerate our profits we are following several strategies as recommended by the creators of this book arbitrage opportunity i.e. Jon Shugart and Luke Sample to great effect. Anyone in the community who follows these strategies see ongoing wonderful results too.

“Energy and persistence conquer all things.”   ~ Benjamin Franklin ~

One of the most important strategies to ongoing profitability in book arbitrage is REPRICING. Amazon reward active accounts by exposing those books to more buyers. We reprice daily which lets Amazon know that we are actively working on selling our inventory. This way we sell more books and Amazon continue to display our bookstore to more customers.

I think of it as flinging open the doors of a brick and mortar bookstore with a banner to let our customers know that we are open for business. In addition to using Amazon’s automatic repricing software we spend some time every day manually repricing to ensure ongoing sales. Our bookstore may be virtual but our due diligence isn’t and our resulting profits are real.

Another strategy we apply is we buy our books based on RETURN ON INVESTMENT (ROI) and sell them based on the market. What I mean by that is when we purchase a book we do so based on the ROI we expect to get based on the Keepa charts e.g. 100%. However, by the time the book arrives in Amazon via the book prep centre the market can have changed somewhat so we now sell based on the current market value.

We do not hold out for the 100% return on investment any longer unless the market is still selling at the percentage. We immediately reprice our books to sell which could be for a profit of 60%. That’s still a whopping return. Initially, however, we made the mistake of holding on too long and waiting for the market to go back up.

This meant that instead of receiving a profit of 60% within 30 days and reinvesting that profit 2 or 3 times we held our books at a price set for 100% ROI which took in most cases 90-120 days to recoup, based on what we had originally paid for the book, and we thereby missed out on a lot more profit in the meantime.

This is an important point in this business. The market doesn’t care what you paid for the book. Sometimes, especially in the beginning with a small inventory we can become attached to our books or our return on investment figure. This slows the whole process way down.

The way to grow this business is speed of sale and reinvestment of profits. In the above example we could’ve had 180% return with the same money, had more sales i.e. profits, more activity on our account and thereby even more sales and expansion. This business is about flipping money as quickly as possible through the sale of quality lower priced books.

Having this as your premise for your business will accelerate your profitability and ensure that your financial freedom comes quickly and easily. Who doesn’t like that?

Over time it will be possible to hold out for more profits but until we are at the hundreds of thousands in sales mark, the above strategy is the most effective by far to get us there.

The third strategy that I would like to share is to regularly change the FILTER SETTINGS in the software when searching for books. There are literally millions of books available to buy on-line. Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon recently revealed that Amazon has over 100,000,000 prime customers.

That’s our target market. So there are hundreds of millions of books and there are at least one hundred million customers available. That’s powerful supply and demand by any standards.

Example: Results from 1 Filter Setting

By changing the filter settings even slightly on my search for book deals a whole new array of books are accessed. For instance, I may put books with a low ‘sales rank’ e.g. 100,000 (this means it sells really fast) and ‘price used’ between $10-$15 in the search filter. I could then change this filter setting to a sales rank of 200,000 and set the used books price at $30. This will then give me a whole new set of books in my search results to choose from. There are so many settings available and each search presents new opportunities thereby an almost endless supply of books.

Taking this approach to our business model ensures that we are active, dynamic and successful. With this method we are really finding that there are no limits to how successful and financially free we can become.

Next, I will discuss the power of creating a compelling emotional vision for your business. This will mean that you no longer try to get there but you are coming from there which makes all the difference.

Accountability In Profit Making

Accountability keeps us on track and is the gift that keeps on giving. Our expansion is assured because of it and our success is certain and accomplished as a byproduct. We love it.

“Vision without execution is just hallucination.”   ~ Henry Ford ~

Everyone gets ideas about how to become rich at some point in their lives. The only difference between those who accomplish it and those who don’t is action.

The beauty of book arbitrage for us with Jon Shugart and Luke Sample is that the path to success has been so clearly laid out. They have left nothing to chance and given us the treasure map where X marks the spot for us to create certain wealth in our business.

We have been taught how to source books at low prices and sell at high prices by experts that are hugely successful with this business model and show up every week to answer our questions and help us to expand our business.

Imagine you had Henry Ford show up every week in your life showing you exactly how to become successful. Well….

Jon and Luke hold themselves accountable to the community by showing up every week. They are constantly expanding and upgrading their software which makes our lives easier, faster and of course more profitable on the backend. The power of their execution and intent of purpose inspires us as a community to be more accountable to ourselves and one another.

For our part we show up every day in our home business to buy books, reprice, do trades, and all the other tasks that it takes to run this mini empire. We hold ourselves accountable by showing up every week on the webinars that are there to help us grow.

Additionally we show up on Facebook to ask and answer questions with the community. Every week we blog our experience so that our journey may be of value to others and it is also an accountability strategy.

“What gets measured, gets improved.”   ~ Robin S. Sharma ~

It allows us to improve and grow our business because we are conscious of where we are and where we are going. Serving others and growing ourselves is a wonderful result!

With other members of our family, who are also creating financial freedom through this book arbitrage system, we hold weekly video calls where we discuss strategies and solutions and inspire each other to set and reach our weekly, monthly and yearly goals.

We schedule all of these activities so that we easily and systematically execute them. It requires very little effort because we have set it up this way. It’s what we do and who we are.

By holding ourselves accountable and by creating our lifestyle around our success we have made the road to success almost effortless and way more fun.

Masterminding our conscious financial freedom is not hard work. It is exciting. Holding ourselves accountable is easy when the goal is being reached daily, weekly, monthly and eventually yearly.

“Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not something to be waited for, but rather something to be achieved.”    ~ William Jennings Bryan ~

Accountability keeps us on track and is the gift that keeps on giving. Our expansion is assured because of it and our success is certain and accomplished as a byproduct. We love it.

Next, let me share with you some specific figures with you that we are accomplishing on our road to financial freedom. They are pretty cool.

Jackpot City

I don’t know about you but working for ourselves from anywhere in the world in a business that is so predictable and profitable not to mention easy is the sweet spot for us.

If you knew a way, a certain way, of making profits that begin at 30% and go all the way up to 250% and even way beyond, that’s without knowing what you were doing, would you jump in?

That’s where we found ourselves in the Textbook season at the beginning of the year. We simply could not believe the profits that were available to us even though we had heard about it in our training. At that point we understood very little about how to deliberately profit from it.

Now that we are coming into another textbook season and know what we’re doing we are primed to make even bigger profits. How fun is that?

We have joked that a trained monkey can make a lot of money in textbook season. ‘Jackpot city’ is a wonderful place to be when you are ready and the market is ready too.

Quite apart from the money that we made in the January/February textbook season and will make again shortly in the summer textbook season, it is exhilarating to watch the frenzy of sales and dynamic movement of profits on books.

The book market in July/August, when all the college kids return to school, is a hotbed of activity and I can only imagine (never having worked there) that it feels similar to the New York stock exchange on a bull run day, only the textbook market lasts over a month but with certain profitable outcomes.

There is no gambling. It’s purely a question of supply and demand and being in the right place at the right time to meet those factors. Since we keep building our inventory then textbook seasons to come will only grow in profitability. It’s a rinse and repeat system.

For example in our first textbook season we had 54 books in our inventory and we sold 22 of them which blew our minds at the time, one of our books was for a profit of 250% as mentioned above. For this season, August/September, we have 400 books so you do the math. Going forward it will only continue to grow.

It is exhilarating to source great quality books at great prices for our customers. To provide a service where they can get amazing value which then adds incredible profits to our bottom line is a win-win which is our lane for sure.

Book trading and arbitrage is a massively profitable business all year round as we are finding out but textbook season is a phenomenon which has to be experienced to be believed. It is amazing.

“The natural phenomenon of the universe is so mind-blowing, but you have to know about it. You have to be curious. You’ve got to find it on your own. If you’re lucky, you do.”   ~ Richard Linklater ~

To create financial freedom and independence in such a systematic, certain and scalable way is magical to us. Our entry level was low and thereby risk free. The pace we go at is our choice. The rate of scalability is our choice.

Our profitability is in direct proportion to our application of what we have been taught. So we are in charge of where we are and where we go from here. The exciting textbook seasons are exhilarating focal points for the year that add incredible fun and profitability to this business for us.

Our ability to engage in this business from anywhere in the world and make money brings with it not only money freedom but time and location freedom too.

I don’t know about you but working for ourselves from anywhere in the world in a business that is so predictable and profitable not to mention easy is the sweet spot for us.

Next, I’d love to talk to you about the power of accountability and how that has directly accelerated our progress in book arbitrage.

The Journey Begins

Documenting the creation of our online-business

Thanks for joining us!

The purpose of this blog is to document and create an easy path for others to follow who choose to create financial freedom through book arbitrage (buy books low and sell them high). My name is Yvette and I am married to Tom and we are successfully buying, trading & selling books on Amazon.JM4J8177BW

A little bit about us. We live in Ireland and have been married for 22 years. Tom works in broadcasting and my background is in personal development and serial if unsuccessful entrepreneurship. That was until last October.

“Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter”   ~ Izaak Walton ~

We began our journey into book arbitrage and book trading after watching a webinar. So, what made this opportunity different from the many hundreds of emails promising financial freedom? Intuition and the guys themselves, Jon Shugart & Luke Sample. Previously, I had vowed that after a litany of failures in on-line business that it would take something really special to get me to saddle up again and this is that something special.

Over the years I trusted the sales person on the other end of the email, who promised an easy certain way to create financial freedom, but with no success. If that has been your story, then I can relate. However, I am happy to report that those days of disappointment are behind me and we are now in the exciting process of creating financial freedom and forever money for our families.

There is an unnecessary indignity experienced by those who cannot pay their bills on an ongoing basis that is very familiar to me. Maybe you know that all too well yourself. You are doing everything right and trying to pay your bills but it’s not enough. It’s not that you can’t afford a second holiday for the year, it’s that the bailiffs are coming to your door and you have no way of paying them. You are faced with another week of adding water to your stews to have another dinner for yourself and your partner.

When this is your experience for years, your lifetime and not a temporary dip your soul can feel suffocated and your dreams lie in shatters. Especially when you know that the only thing between you and financial magic is mindset and the right opportunity. Welcome home if that is your story. You could be about to write the dynamic chapter in the financial section of your biography.

Further on I will explain in detail what book arbitrage is and how we make money with it in step by step ways. I will share the mistakes we’ve made and the highs we experience as we make money with certainty from the comfort of our home, scale our business and create the life of our dreams.

So why blog about it? In short, because part of our purpose, mine and Tom’s is to empower others to create real world financial security. The best way we know to do that is self-creation and with book arbitrage as long as you have a computer and an open mind you can do it.  We love that. The reason we resonate so deeply with Jon and Luke is because of that common goal and in other blogs I will share how they have gone out of their way, in quiet ways to help us personally.

For the record, myself or Tom have not designed this training or software. That is what Jon and Luke have done. We are happy to ride on the shoulders of giants to facilitate our financial goals and to be the catalyst for you to reach yours. Our mission is to empower you to create the life of your dreams with the financial part taken care of through book arbitrage. We actively work on 13 different areas of our lives, more on that another time. Book arbitrage with the software the guys provide is the fastest and most successful way we have found to move the needle in the financial part of our lives with almost no capital and to scale it to unbelievable heights. Are we there yet? No. Are we on our way? Definitely.

Let me be clear. We have added an affiliate link below and should you feel inspired to purchase this software and training and change your life we would be very thankful for your trust. Beyond the bottom line of euro and dollar amount it is amazing to be creating our own financial destiny – at last and to empower you to benefit from the same opportunities and for you to gain from our experience is the holy grail of service and fulfilment.

What you can expect here is our full commitment in blogging our experience (mistakes and victories), blogs on mindset which keep us on track in an easy manner. The mindset piece proves key as we meet challenges along the way as we expand our definition of who we are and the expectations that we miss, meet and/or exceed. Also, we are happy to share tips and tricks we wish we had known early on as well as screenshots of our milestones along the way.

Welcome to the part of your life that could read LIFE CHANGE in a big way should you decide to come along and join us on our journey to financial happiness.
