In this post I'll go through Robert (or Robbie, as he's better known) Del Grande's Omega Automation Services, showing what he does well and what could be improved. 

What's an Amazon Automation Service?

Simply put, it's pinch-hitting your Amazon FBA business. 

You hit the ball by providing the upfront money and the done-for-you service runs around the FBA bases for you, doing the following tasks: 

Amazon Automation DFU List:
  • Product Selection (Finding a Profitable Product)
  • Product Sourcing (Finding a Supplier)
  • Product Pricing
  • Order Processing (Maintaining Inventory Levels)
  • Amazon Account Health Maintenance (Making Sure Bezos Approves)
  • Scaling the Amazon Business

If you were doing it all yourself, it would take a lot of time, effort, and coordination with other parties. 

Here's a summary of the process of getting a product to market on Amazon:

But if you outsource to a pre-built team, the idea is that you can save a lot of hassle. 

Before we dive into Robbie's service, a lil bit about me...

A lil bit about me... My name is Ippei...

In 2014, I joined a lead generation coaching program that freed me from my 9-5 in 7 months by building and ranking simple websites that generate leads for local businesses (who give me a sliver to deliver)

Lead Gen to Amazon FBA (and then Back to Lead Gen)

After I grew my lead gen biz to 7 figures, and enjoyed some needed R&R (below is me and some friends in Europe)

Btw: love to travel, check out my instagram here

I branched out to experiment with Amazon FBA 

(ton of hype around it in 2017)

Long story short

I put together a team of virtual assistants

(I was taught how to hire VA's in by the lead gen program)


And 2 years later, I had a couple brands doing over 6 figures.

I show you that to say this:

Since I have extensive experience selling on Amazon, I believe I am qualified to review Robbie's Omega Automation services. 

My goal in doing so is to show you what to watch out for in if you decide to hire Done-For-You Amazon Services.

Omega Automation (FBM DFU)

What Omega Auto Does For You (In-depth)

Step 1: Product Research

Over 350 million products are sold by amazon and they have 6,000 unique classes in their product directory.

Everyone knows that the product(s) you select will make or break your Amazon Business so it is crucial (especially when you're getting started) that you select profitable products.

Now there's many ways to do this and a number of helpful product selection tools that accelerate the selection process, but all that takes time to understand and money to the tool subscriptions, and that's why some people today take up Vince's offer to have the process done for them.

Step 2: Listing Construction

Once you've chosen your product, it's time to show it off .

But there is more than posting a picture and a few words to creating an Amazon listing.

It's somewhat more complicated than that, seeing as you will need to take photos that pop out to the mobile shoppers in addition to use keywords that boost your listing to the top of the search results faster than you can reach for a chair to access the top cabinets in your kitchen.

Step 3: Supplier Selection + Inventory Management

Step 3:When you've chosen your product, another thing on your to-do list is to decode which provider  you want to place an order with.

As you are making that choice, you must take into account if you would like to ship from over-seas or from your own country (basically whether you want to save time by sending nationally or spend less money by getting your goods from China).

Step 4: Order Processing + Returns

Do you enjoy paperwork or not?

That's exactly what this step comes down to. Each order needs to be taken in, and set up with a tracking number. If you give them their money back and if your customer asks for a return, it's useful to your reputation as a seller.

Step 5: Order Tracking (Shipped, Delivered, etc.)

What if your customer claims they never recieved their product? How can you figure out what happened?

That's right

As mentioned before your product NEEDS a tracking number. 

And when you build up your business, you'll have to track thousands of products coming and going. Lots of details. #spreadsheets

Step 6: Customer Service + Collect Customer Reviews

How can you encourage your customers to leave reviews?

Often you have to set up a review funnel (learn how to get more reviews here), using either an email follow up system or a product information card packed on the top of your product. 

Amazon's TOS is very particular on how you ask for the review, so watch your step and avoid Bezo's toes (because a disobedience could mean a suspension of your seller account, which means your "passive income" drys up faster than a waterhole in the Sahara. 

Step 7: Scaling Your Amazon Store by Adding More Items

This is what you, as someone considering investing 30 grand in an Amazon store, are waiting for. 

Why?

Because this is when you really start to get paid.

If you've done your homework about buying income an automatic Amazon income, it takes 90 days for your store to jive with the gods of Amazon. 

(if your store adds products or does too many sales too quickly, it will get suspended and thrown in the sandbox, becoming stuck like glue #sugarland)

And it's at that point when your store can up it's sales like Tony Hawk ramped up his game to become the Birdman! 

Pros and Cons 

Of using a Done4You Amazon Automation Service

Pros

  • No Learning Curve
  • 99% Passive

Cons

  • Often 25-30k in upfront Cost
  • Requires a SUPER High Level of Trust in Provider
Conclusion:

I sold products on Amazon for 3 years (2016-2019), which makes me say enthusiastically: Be careful, should you choose to do the complete DFU Amazon FBA. There's some legit service providers and there's others who will just take your money and walk (scam artists).

As for Robert's "Omega Automation," he's got some knowledge of Amazon if you look at his course "Amazon Mastery," it does lay out each of the steps to selling products on the largest ecommerce platform. 

Why I left Amazon to Return Full Force to Lead Generation

Amazon FBM Automation

  • Market Saturated - Only 6000 niches
  • Expensive to Start (Need 15,000 dollars)
  • Low Barrier to Entry (Anyone can duplicate product)
  • Low Profit Margin (~15%)
  • No Control - Amazon can Shutdown Account
  • No Passivity - Lots of Moving Parts (Shipping, Ads, Launches)

Lead Generation

  • New Opportunity in Every Zipcode
  • Affordable to Start (few hundred dollars)
  • Requires Skills to Rank on Google
  • Little Overhead, High Profit Margin
  • Complete Control - You own the Website
  • Passive once Ranked - Just Deposit Mailbox Money

After scaling my lead gen business to 35k each month, my fomo got the better of me and I hopped on the FBA train in 2016. 

And while having a business on Amazon was quite the adventure, it wasn't a very profitable one

It took a lot of money to get it moving and the profit margins were hardly half of my lead generation business. 

When I look back, my Amazon business was more vulnerable than my leadgen business is, because if your seller account is suspended, which means your sales stop, which means your "automated Amazon income machine" grinds to a sudden halt and then you can no longer pay your bills or support your family. 

With your lead generation business, it's different

Your income can't be turned off like an unpaid faucet by the water department. 

Instead, you develop digital assets like this tree care site

Each month you'll have multiple businesses sending you checks because of your services. 

One truth that I learned from Rich Dad Poor Dad was the wisdom of multiple streams of income. 

Since you build out many different lead gen sites, your income is diversified, coming from many different business owners. 

Me? 

I have 70+ lead gen properties rented out, each one paying me monthly mail box money. 

Here's another member of our leadgen coaching program who committed to building a better life

Did you see how he's constructed his lead generation business now having more than 50 clients in more than 20 different states? 

That's a profit-generating, epidemic proof business under Patric's complete control.
