The first part (The beginners guide to importing from China) shows you the basics of how to source on 35 lectures and 2 hours of video content with straight forward and practical advice. The professional edition adds over 28 new lectures and another 4 hours (!!!) of video content to this and is constantly updated whenever things change. Follow me navigating trough videos & screencasts how I am sourcing on Alibaba and calculate shipping costs!
Most other courses only teach you the very basics but the truth is there is a lot more to running an import business than some of those self proclaimed experts want to admit. In the the professional edition of the guide to importing from China you get access to learn how to run your business like the big guys do from day one.
I guide you trough sourcing & importing with practical examples, screencasts & 10 years of sourcing experience.
Learn from my Experience, Avoid Costly MistakesThe problem most people have with sourcing is that it is a complex topic. There are many things to keep in mind, to consider, to figure out and master. The professional edition of the Import Bible takes the guesswork out of crucial decisions and acts as a reference of what to do whenever a question comes up.
How do you build lasting relationships with suppliers? How do you make sure you get the best prices without encouraging suppliers to cut corners on quality? When is it worth travelling overseas to trade shows or visiting factories?
These are some of the questions that you might already have but certainly will pop up sometime in the future and we want to make sure you are prepared for this.
