Don’t Make This Big Mistake in Q4

IS your Amazon business PREPARED FOR THE SURGE IN SALES THIS Q4?

As an Amazon seller, the holiday season is likely your busiest — and most lucrative — time of year. Between Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and other December sales events, your storefront will inevitably see a boost in traffic and transactions. But you also run a big risk: an Amazon stockout.

What if you haven’t bought enough inventory — or the right inventory — for the holiday season?

With a little extra preparation, your Amazon business can avoid mistakes and capitalize on increased Amazon shoppers.

Every business owner makes mistakes – it’s part of being an entrepreneur. You just don’t want a big mistake to happen at the busiest time of the year, Q4. Amazon is predicted to drive 34% of all holiday shopping this year.

MISTAKES
HAPPEN

Remember that time you spent your cash reserves purchasing the “hit” toy at MSRP? And then the winning Buy Box was $2 below MSRP?

And you were left with no cash and a bunch of inventory you were sure to lose money on, just when you needed it most.

Or that other time you had an opportunity to buy a hot-ticket product at a serious discount but you didn’t have the cash to cover the purchase?

You lost out on the inventory deal, didn’t have a holiday must-have item, and therefore had lackluster sales in Q4.

Or how about that time you DID score a deal on a top-selling item and spent all your cash stocking up on it for the holidays?

It completely sold out by Cyber Monday and demand was still strong, but you weren’t able to replenish the inventory because Amazon was holding your income. So you lost the Buy Box and sales plummeted when they should have been at an all-time high.

No matter how well you plan or how hard you try, these situations can — and do — happen. And having them happen during the holiday season is bad for business to say the least. If you’re not prepared with the right stock levels, you’ll run out of inventory when you need it most and you’ll lose out on potential customers.

SO WHAT DO YOU DO?

No matter how well you plan or how hard you try, these situations can — and do — happen. And having them happen during the holiday season is bad for business to say the least. If you’re not prepared with the right stock levels, you’ll run out of inventory when you need it most and you’ll lose out on potential customers.

SO WHAT DO YOU DO?

You could wait two weeks for your Amazon income then restock, but that means you’re not only waiting for cash, you’re also waiting for sales. Since your listing won’t be active during the stockout, you’ll be losing customers at a time when they are spending, spending, spending — especially on Amazon. 

And waiting equals missed opportunity

What’s more, if you experience an Amazon stockout, you put your account standing at risk and could lose the Buy Box and your sales rank in the process. That means that when you ARE able to replenish inventory, your listings could be buried under your competitors.

Sounds like a Q4 disaster.

CASH
SAVES THE DAY

Of course a Q4 disaster is not an option. What about dipping into your cash flow reserves?

If you’re like most Amazon sellers, there are none — or at least not enough to get you back on track in a timely manner. After all, as an Amazon seller, your cash is tied up in inventory (or with Amazon!), and when you finally do get paid, you’re more often than not reinvesting in more product or covering other critical business expenses. Needless to say, you’re not building up any sort of business savings or rainy day funds.

Alas, wouldn’t it be nice to not have to worry about your cash flow or inventory levels this holiday season?

Imagine if you had access to your income one business day after making a sale. What if, after record sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you get your income (which should be above average thanks to those record sales!) before December even begins? What would you do with all that cash? You could replenish your hot-ticket items right away, or finally take advantage of that holiday inventory opportunity you miss out on every year. Not only that, you can maintain the Buy Box, your sales rank and avoid the dreaded Amazon stockout

The end result? Your business has a banner Q4 and you’re not scrambling every two weeks to make business ends meet.
