Can we help you?
Are you having trouble starting or growing your online retail business? Maybe you are having a hard time finding inventory? Or maybe it just feels like a struggle, and you’re thinking there must be a better way?
We can likely help.
Yes, likely help. Here at OSE we don’t promise anything we aren’t confident we can deliver on.
With our coaching program, that means only accepting individuals that we know are a good fit for the program.
Doing this has led to sellers we work with achieving great results. We’ve helped many sellers reach their goals. Some scaling to 7 figures or more in sales.
On this page we’ll talk about who is and isn’t a good fit for the program, our approach with coaching, and the option to apply if you’re interested.
Let’s start with who isn’t a good fit for the program.
You are a private label seller.
While we have some experience here, it’s not where we are true experts. If you are looking for coaching on private label or building your own brand, email us and we can make an introduction to a very successful seller who may be able to help you.
You have less than 10 hours per week to dedicate to your business.
Success in this business takes an investment of time. Coaching helps to get things going well faster, but you still have to put in the work.
You have less than $10,000 in capital available for your business.
Our coaching program is designed in such a way that we work in an in depth manner which each client, that means that there is a fairly significant investment required to join our coaching program.
You also need to have plenty of capital to buy inventory for your business. Starting with at least $10,000 in capital makes it so that you can invest in the coaching program and still have plenty left to invest in inventory and growing your business.
Now I know that having $10,000+ may not be the situation you are in right now. I know I didn’t have that on hand when I first started my business. And if you don’t, that’s completely ok. We have other self paced and group coaching programs that are available for as little as $299.
If those go well and you are looking to scale up, then come back here and we’d love to explore coaching you.
If you have a question on which product is right for you, or a question on any of our products or services, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now, let’s talk about who this program is a good fit for:
You are looking to build your business selling other people’s products.
The sourcing strategies you want to use in your business include: flipping, retail arbitrage, online arbitrage, and wholesale.
You are willing to work hard and put in the time.
You aren’t afraid to do what it takes to run a successful business. In the early days you are willing to go to retail stores, ship your own orders, and do every process in your business. It doesn’t have to be this way for very long, we can provide guidance on outsourcing, but you need to be willing to do everything in the beginning.
You have $10,000+ in capital for your business.
This ensures you are in a position to have plenty of capital available after your investment in coaching, and see a great return on your investment.
You are willing to reinvest in your business and delay gratification.
The success of an online retail business is largely determined by how much quality inventory you buy and how fast it sells. If you take money out of the business early on this will directly impact how much inventory you can buy, and as a result will slow down the rate your business grows. Everyone has different goals, and if you need to take some money out of the business early that’s ok, but you need to understand how that will impact the rate of growth of your business.
You have realistic goals for your business.
I’ve seen applications from individuals who are starting with less than $5,000 who want to be profiting $500K+ within a year. Now, I love big goals and aiming high, but if that’s what you’re looking to do I’m not the coach for you. As you’d be looking at some lottery ticket type odds on the strategies you’d need to use to have any chance of making that a reality.
Now, you’re probably wondering what is a realistic goal. The amount of capital you have available, the amount of time you invest (and reinvest) in your business, and how much experience you have are all major variables. So take this with a grain of salt, but if you are starting with $20K and your goal is to be profiting at least $10,000 per month within a year, I believe that’s a reasonable to aim for.
You are coachable.
Put simply, you are willing to take the input of someone that has been there before.
Now hopefully you have a pretty good idea if you’re a good fit for the program or not. So let’s discuss our approach to coaching.
There are 3 pillars to our program.
The first is a personalized road map for your business. Upon joining the coaching program we’ll have you fill out an in depth questionnaire to learn about you and your business. We’ll figure out exactly where you are in your business, what your goals are for the next year, and then make a personalized plan for you on how to achieve those goals.
The road map will lay out a plan for you month by month to help you get where you want to go. The road map will have you start off with the most impactful things you can do to get your business off the ground, and each month will build on the next.
We’ve found that having a clear plan provides clarity on what clients should be working on when. Clarity leads to knowing what to work on when you are dedicating time to working on your business. So rather than wondering what to do next, your road map will show you what to do.
The road map is not something that is put together once and then it’s done. We’ll review your questionnaire, put together a draft for your feedback, and then revise and update as needed.
Similarly if you are achieving things ahead of schedule, or falling behind, we’ll provide updates to the plan as needed.
The second pillar is the strategies to implement.
Put simply, you’ll learn the strategies we use in my business. You’ll learn exactly how we do retail arbitrage, online arbitrage, wholesale, outsourcing, pricing, inventory management, seller central management, and everything in between.
We’ll show you the strategies that we’ve been perfecting over the years so that you can hit the ground running to grow your business.
Rather than go through a bunch of trial and error to figure out what works, you’ll be able to start fast using our strategies.
We’ll show you the exact stores we go to for retail arbitrage, some of our favorite stores for online arbitrage, and more. For wholesale, we aren’t able to share all of the exact accounts we work with. But we are able to share a few that can help you obtain approvals to sell products you are currently restricted from selling.
Through coaching the strategies used in my business will be the same ones you implement in yours. And to be clear these are strategies we continue to use every day. As things change, we’ll update our strategies.
The third pillar of the coaching program is support so that you will have the help you need along the way.
When a question comes up you will be able to email us directly. We’ll then answer via an email, screen share video, or whichever method is most appropriate for your question.
I could go into more detail here, but the point is that if you need help throughout your time in the coaching program, it’s there.
Now, let’s take a moment to talk about why you might want to consider working with us.
We continue to run this online retail business. As things change with Amazon we are up to date and adjust strategies as needed.
My business started with about a $5,000 investment and has done at least a million dollars in sales every year since 2015. The Stairway to Seven Figures concept was formed directly from scaling my business. I’ve been down the path before and know what it takes each step of the way.
We’ve helped many other sellers through our courses and coaching. This ranges from sellers looking to make an extra $1,000 per month who have achieved that, to sellers looking to scale to 7 figures plus in sales per year who’ve achieved that.
Whether you need help getting your business off the ground, breaking through a sales plateau, help with building a team, or just need help growing your business, we should be able to help. And on the off chance we can’t, we’ll tell you that upon reviewing your application.
One more thing – our coaching programs are designed to be affordable so that we can help you generate a clear ROI. They start at just $499 a month.
Due to the in depth nature in which we work with our clients, we require an application to be considered for the OSE coaching program.
