Looking to have someone pinch hit for your Amazon business?
Vince Ecom Automation is one of many Amazon Automation Services available today, but is it the best or most reliable?
In this review, I examine Vince's Ecom Automation Empire, showing what Amazon drop-shipping is and how Yvenson Israel, "Vince," came offer his done-for-you opportunity to sell on Amazon.
But hey, you might be asking,
Who's this dude?
How's he qualified to review this Amazon stuff?
Here's the answer
I sold on Amazon for 3 years: from 2016 to 2019, building a couple of brands that did multiple 6-figures.
But I left the Amazon world at the beginning of 2020.
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)
After grew my lead gen biz to 7 figures, I branched out to experiment with Amazon FBA (ton of hype around it in 2017)
Let's get into Vince's Ecom Empire:
Vince Ecom Empire Review
About Yvenson Israel
Yvenson "Vince" Israel has been in the entrepreneurial game a long time, but before that he went to college, graduating with a degree in business finance.
After he finished his BA degree, he got hired into a position in the corporate world, and prepared to spend the next 30 years of his life in a large comfortable office.
When he was growing up, his parents lived paycheck to paycheck, often being late on rent. It was this background that drove Vince to search for ways to better his position in life.
The rich people he saw had the commonality of owning assets that created income for them (sounds a bit like Rich Dad Poor Dad, doesn't it?)
Since he didn't have the dough to get into real estate, he looked toward the internet.
After joining several mlms, he decided to get into a business that he could control, so he got into Amazon drop shipping, throwing his whole weight into developing his seller account on the largest ecommerce platform to date.
Eventually he put together a large team of virtual assistants in the Philippines and Bangladesh that complete every part of the business selling products on Amazon.
What Vince Ecom Does For You (In-depth)
Step 1: Product Research
Amazon sells more than 350 million different products and has 6,000 different categories in their product directory.
Everyone knows that the product(s) you select will make or break your Amazon Business so it's crucial (especially when you are getting started) that you select profitable items.
Now there's many ways to do this and many different helpful product selection tools that speed up the selection process, but all that takes time to learn and money for the tool subscriptions, which is why some people 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 in an item listing.
But there's more to making an Amazon listing than posting a picture and a few words.
It's a bit more complex than that, seeing as you need to take photos that pop out to the mobile shoppers as well as 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 cupboards in your kitchen.
Step 3: Supplier Selection + Inventory Management
Once you've selected your product, another item on your to-do list is to decipher which supplier you'd like to place an order with.
As you are making that decision, you must take into account if you want to ship from over-seas or from your own country (basically whether you want to save time by shipping nationally or spend less money by getting your product from China).
Step 4: Order Processing + Returns
Do you like paperwork or not?
That's what this step comes down to.
Each order has to be taken in, and set up with a tracking number.
(that is of course, unless you want to track your packages like Elmer Fudd "tracked" Bugs Bunny)
And if your customer asks for a return, it's beneficial to your reputation as a seller if you give them their money back.
Step 5: Order Tracking (Shipped, Delivered, etc.)
What if your customer claims they never recieved their product? How can you figure out what happened?
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
As someone who thinking of paying for automation, this step is the one you are really looking forward to, as it is not until your DFU amazon business starts hitting home runs that you really reap the rewards of hiring a large team to do all the lifting for you.
Because with Vince's ecom automation, he and his team take home 30% of the profits, while your business takes home 70%.
Pros and Cons
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 Vince's "Ecom Empire," There's a solid amount of reviews that say his services aren't reliable and there's no way to get your money back once you've wired it to him, so if you've got the 25k burning a hole in your pocket, I'd highly encourage you to look to a more reliable provider, if not a more reliable business model entirely.
Let's face it, one of the biggest issues confronting many of the Amazon Automation providers these days is seller account suspensions.
If Amazon suspends your account, there are ways to get it back, but that can take months.
And if your done-for-you shop stops selling, you stop earning (PERIOD).
That's the biggest reason I stopped selling on Amazon in 2019:
I wanted complete control over my business.
Why I left Amazon to Go Full Speed Ahead in Lead Generation
Amazon FBM Automation
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.
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 built his lead gen business now having more than 50 clients in more than 20 different states?
That's a profitable, epidemic proof business under Patric's complete control.
