those same results here is your host Dave Woodward welcome back funnel hackers I’m your host Dave Woodward and today you have the opportunity of hearing from Ricardo late Ricardo welcome thank you Dave it’s a pleasure I am super excited to have Ricardo on I actually met Ricardo last month while I was speaking and kind of teaching NIC Greer’s entrepreneur class and bring him Young University Ricardo was one of the students there so Ricardo was a college student at Brigham Young University is an immigrant from Brazil he’s an Amazon seller and he Zacks been using ClickFunnels™ it was a lot of fun while I was teaching the class here from Ricardo is some success that he’s having and I’m always there I thought you know what I wanted to make sure we brought someone on that not everybody knows who’s kind of new to the audience and would be a lot of fun to kind of experience some of the things that you’ve already gone through Ricardo and some of the tips and things you’ll have for our listeners so let’s just kind of dive right in this you ready to go yeah absolutely all right so as you know we’re just kind of talking offline for a second you you started off as kind of doing sick amazon selling and one of the main things you were in a situation was basically I think you’ve been married what almost a year now it’s all right yeah a little bit over a year right now a little over a year so a few months ago baek’s you’re in a situation where you had just one month left of funds I know how that is is a young married couple college dude you’ve got oh my gosh I got to provide for my wife how am I going to do this pick up the story there tell people what did you end up doing yeah absolutely so that was back in April that was last month back in school and my wife and I my wife was was working at that time but she wasn’t making enough money for us both to pay for the bills and as an immigrant I was kind of a little bit stranded because I was gonna get a job at college I tried applying for three different jobs and got denied and obviously I couldn’t work outside of campus so I told my wife we got out we got to start sending some of the stuff we have here at home and even perhaps start buying and flipping some stuff online never done it how to do it so I don’t know what we’re gonna do so with this I came across this course online that I was basically teaching how to start selling on Amazon and I was kind of intrigued from the results that people were having and and then I decided to take a chance I thought you know if they can make these type of results I’m sure I can make it as well – matter of fact I was a lot of people getting results from being outside of the states and bringing you know enough for their family which is my main goal the reason why I worked so hard for my family so I decided you know what let’s take this last month of funds and let’s put down to this course in fact the course itself cost a little bit under $4,000 and I didn’t have that money so I had to go into a payment plan paying for months we we had thousand dollars down then I did a course for about a month and I had to ask for a refund because I didn’t make enough money to pay for it so so as for the refund so I got $1,000 back a little bit of knowledge then month of May I decided I’m gonna find some products online sourced from China and let’s see how we go so beginning of June I started doing that and was able to pay for the bills of in June and then I started also buy products on sale on stores a lot of people call this retail arbitrage and just you know it was I was living paycheck by paycheck at that time from what the money were I was making from selling online but that’s all I needed back then I just we just needed to go we were we were always talk you know how we needed to wait how much do we need to make this month to survive to live and then yeah the end of June we decided we were able to finally make a little bit more so we moved out from well from where we were living to a better place and back in August I decided to finally incorporate a business and start a private label company that we launched in October we sold out in three weeks which was quite amazing for me and with that money I just purchased more inventory and now I have a large amount of inventory on Amazon looking for for Christmas so how much money do you make in October I think that’s the cool thing so in October were able to break a little bit over 15,000 in revenue and about yeah about half of that was profit that I was able to just reinvest into you buy more products that’s pretty I mean I think it’s so cool it I hope people understand you know a lot of times people would get on and say oh yeah I made sixty thousand dollars and all this guy stuff I think the cool part right now is your college student who’s sitting there with a newly married wife stress trying to find out how you pay the bills stay in school can’t get a job and so you turn to online marketing and with Amazon basically you end up making really seven thousand dollars or some profit in one month which for a college student who basically couldn’t even afford that it had to get a refund on the products four months earlier that’s said to me that’s pretty amazing so I’m super super excited about you hear about your success thank you I’m amazed myself sometimes in November basically I was teaching the class there it was if so you said you know what you were using clip funnels I thought you know what there are too many college kids I know who actually are using click funnels and I thought so what exactly are you doing and why have you gone from Amazon how are using amma or click funnels with your Amazon business so first time I heard of click funnels was actually from my brother-in-law and he’s saying we’re gonna implement a new type of platform in our business and we’re hoping it’s gonna work and I’m okay I’m gonna take a look at it and so I started following Russell’s and photo hacking TV and I just was amazed with the results you’re bringing for two people and also just how you made everything simple in one basic platform so I purchased the basic program and there for a month I was just playing around filling it playing around and right now the the most useful part of quick one is for me is with Amazon I don’t know whether my products gonna work or not I have to buy a large batch of inventory put it up for sale and hope that it works and obviously do some tricks in there and hopefully it’s gonna sell and with what I love about quick phone is that I’m able to create sales funnel sequence a sales funnel and I’m also able to create another one where I can split tests and see you know if I source this product from from China for my business is this gonna be a better product as a trip wire or is this gonna be a better product a my as my a high-end ticket product or should I source this other product so I’m actually able to split test with products that I do have them ready but I haven’t purchased yet because once I purchase they will come in here within seven days so it makes it a lot easier for me to to test the concept and that’s what I love the most about quick way knows I love that you know it’s I have spoke to so many people obviously who are utilizing ClickFunnels™ and different ways they’re using it and I think one of the things I’ve seen a lot especially from a lot of our Amazon sellers and those people who are really trying to kind of get things going is the opportunity as you mentioned as far as split testing and I know when we were the class we were talking about the principle of actually selling something before you have it here and a lot of the students like what you can’t do that gets a lot like you just have to be able to fulfill and help people understand so I think it’s amazing to see how you’re implementing this again using ClickFunnels™ basically split test to find out interest in a product and then what you know what what the interest is at that point you can then go ahead and actually buy it and fulfill on your for your clients I think that’s just fascinating yeah exactly and I think what’s the worst that can happen you know if there’s a larger quantity on a product that people want and a smaller quantity on a different product all you gotta do is just refund the people for the money that they they they pay for and it’s not gonna hurt them they’re gonna get their money back I love that I love your entrepreneur old I get it’s so fun for me to be working with you having something like this just to see how as again immigrant from Brazil college student newly married all the stresses of life getting you going I gotta find a way and we talked so often about you just one funnel away and it’s been neat for me to see your one funnel way story and basically how it’s providing for your family and how it’s allowing you to really pursue your dreams and your passions whether or not you do this long-term it doesn’t even matter it’s just the to see how you’re actually implementing this in your own life and again I want to congratulate your tongue under success it’s really super cool thank you really appreciate it thank you so what advice would you have for other people who are just starting off or entrepreneurs what what advice would you have for them if you have an idea that you want to pursue and you highly believe it’s gonna work you should try it and if you fail it’s not a big deal just try something else how as an entrepreneur you have so many ideas that come to your mind and what differentiates the the good entrepreneur and the one who aspires to be an entrepreneur are the actions that you take I am looking right now here right next to my my office room and about seven different products that I tried selling on Amazon that actually didn’t sell and I’m okay with that because I’m okay although you know it didn’t sell and instead of me paying for the fees I just got them back but I was willing to try it and even though I failed I learned that if I fail it I got a feel as quick as I can before I can actually find my weed and the quicker you fail sometime you’ll find a winner and then once you find it you got to devote your time and your passion for it and that’s the beauty of entrepreneurship the more times you’re willing to try the longer the more patient you are and the the more you believe in the product it will work it’s you know a lot of people say ninety ninety four ninety five percent of the ideas fail and it’s true you gotta take that into account so you got to find that ten to five percent of idea that you that will actually work you just gotta be persistence cuz it’s it’s tough but tough times they don’t last but tough people do so just work hard super super cool well I don’t you just kind of get things going itself but people are always always interesting to find out more about what you’re doing things so
