Ezra Firestone - Brown Box Formula

Rumor has it that Ezra Firestone will be doing a live hangout answering your questions in the next day or so – I’ll let you know for sure once I hear from him.

In the meantime, Ezra has sent over answers to some of the most common questions he’s gotten regarding his Brown Box Formula training.

Q: I’m not in the US, will this still work for me?

Yes, it will absolutely still work. I’m not personally running any sites outside the US, but many people are and with great success. I’ll be doing a training webinar in the members area specifically to address
those options and will be inviting friends of mine that are doing business internationally to join me on that training.

Q: I am brand new, will I be able to do this?

A: Yes. My training was created specifically for you. I’ve mapped out from A-Z how I build/run these businesses. You will have to be willing to learn new skills and follow tutorials. You’ll be required to spend time and energy building your business, but as long as you’re willing to follow along, you’ll be fine. The technology it takes to build an eComm business is now fairly plug and play. You no longer need to know how to code (that’s what services like BigCommerce do for you). So the short answer is, Yes, if you’re brand new you can still do this.

Q: What Kind Of A Budget Do I need? Will I Be Able To Buy Traffic On A Budget?

A: Every business is going to require that you spend money to build it. Anyone who tells you otherwise is being untruthful. This business model has the lowest overhead of anyone that I know of. You will need $29 p/m for your store platform (BigCommerce), $50 or so to have your logo made (or $5 on Fiverr – but you might want one of higher quality), $10p/m for a phone service (not 100% necessary but I recommend it!), $14 p/m for live chat (again not necessary but I recommend it). You’re going to want some kind of budget for advertising ($3 per day, $5 per day, $10 per day, it doesn’t matter what you start with – the great thing is that you can focus on just one or two keywords, get them profitable and scale from there). There is overhead in every business – you can expect $50-$100 per month in overhead in this business. Most of your investment comes in the form of your time, the time it takes to re-write your product descriptions, upload your products to your store, etc. If you’re willing to put in the time/energy it takes to your business – you can do it. Money is not your biggest obstacle here.

Q: How does this compare to Amazon FBA?

A: They are 2 completely different business models. It’s like comparing apples to oranges. In the brown box business you are blind shipping – so you are selling someone else’s products, after you’ve been paid for them. In the Amazon / wholesale model, you are buying products up front and shipping the to Amazon. They are both great business models – one requires a bit more capital than the other. I recommend starting with blind-shipping because it requires less up front capital.

Q: Who Does My Customer Service? My Supplier? BigCommerce?

A: No one will handle your customer service for you (and that is something you should be excited about). You want to get to know your customers, their questions, their problems – this will give you more insight into how to better serve your community and help you build a better, stronger, and more profitable business. BigCommerce is a shopping cart platform, they do not do customer service for you. Your supplier supplies your product, they also do not do customer service for you – nor could either of them if they
wanted to. Customer service is not hard to do, you don’t have to be an expert on the products – most questions are related to shipping and returns. You will also not receive many phone calls or emails until you start doing volume and once you do, you can outsource this to a member of your team. I recommend doing it yourself while you are small to get to know your customers.

Q: Will I learn how to locate suppliers?

A: Yes, I’ve dedicated an entire module with multiple videos to this subject. Finding suppliers is easier than you think. These manufacturers/suppliers want you to sell their products, they are looking for people like you. They want to be found and I show you exactly how to find them.

I hope this answers your most burning questions.
