Perry Belcher: How to Import from China
I have been importing goods from china for almost 15 years now and it really amazes me that more internet marketers don’t do the same. It’s amazing how easy it is to be profitable and truly bring value to people.
I remember at the very first of the dot-com boom the big buzz was that the business world would be changed forever because the supply chain would be slashed. Basically, manufactures and importers could sell their goods directly to consumers without the distribution channel eating up all the profits and driving up the costs.
It never seemed to happen on a large scale.
I’m here to tell you it totally works! Imagine you sell hand dryers, like the kind in restrooms. These things are like $400 retail but from my supplier in China there $34 bucks!
I can sell them online for $199, or 50% off retail, and sell 100+ every month, just with simple PPC.
Here is my biggest rule.
Is the product something that would be hard to find locally in a good size town. If you can’t find it at home where do you look? Yep: GOOGLE!
I’ve had success in the past hand dryers, stanchions (look it up), sausage grinders, liquid fillers, key control cabinets and a bunch of other weird niches.
Take it from one who has hung up his info product boots, physical products are where it’s at, and they always will be.
PLUS: I sold my last physical products site for over $250,000 when it was just 9 months old. People understand buy low and sell high.
If you guys seem interested in this subject, let me know and I’ll write more about it.
If you have a niche in mind tell me about it below and I’ll give you my thoughts (worth about 2 cents)
Happy Importing, Perry
