The Real Value of a Brand! Earn Monthly Income or Sell for a Lump Sum!

brand checkToday I am so excited to have in my hand the “down payment”  of the earnings I will received from selling off one of the brands/businesses that I’ve started and developed!

Today I want to look at what went into creating the brand, the sales history, the benefit I’ve received from it, why I’m selling it, and the total sum I will receive once the sale is complete!  We’ll also talk about how you can potentially do the same! Continue reading

New Amazon Restriction: How I Got Approved to Sell DVDs Over $25 MSRP (After Being Denied!)

green lightIMPORTANT UPDATE 3/10/15:

The below strategy may still work for you, but it seems there is a lot of confusion lately both on the part of the seller and Amazon.  Please read my updated post on this policy HERE.

Also, Mountain View Movies has released a page with their own thoughts on this matter HERE

You may have heard by now about Amazon’s latest seller restriction.  Any DVD, or Blu ray with an MSRP of $25 or greater will not be able to be sold unless you gain approval by Amazon.

When I first received the notice, I did not think it was going to be difficult to get approved.  After all, I’ve been selling DVDs for several years and have maintained a 100% feedback rating.  After submitting my information, I was denied!  I did some searches to attempt to look deeper into this new restriction.  I found that articles have been written all over the internet, sellers were talking about it in forums and overall, there is widespread speculation, anger and panic! None of the sources I found provided a method on how to get approved.  I could not even find a single seller on the forums who did get approved!  (I found a lot who had been denied however!)

Today I want to provide you with what I wish I would have found in my searches.  As I’ve said in past posts, I’m happy to provide information that helps you to learn from my mistakes rather than your own!  Through a lot of back and forth with Amazon and several attempts, I’ve been approved!  Let’s talk about exactly what this restriction is and how to get the green light from Amazon!
