I just saw a book on Amazon by Jim Cockrum called “Silent Sales Machine.” It was updated in the fall of 2017, so it’s up to date.
Now, I’m not a guy who gets too cranked about anything – but I have to say that for only $5.92 – yeah, that’s right – less than 6 Bucks – you’re going to get a TON of value. Silent Sales Machine is available in either paperpack or a Kindle ebook.
You need to know a little bit about Jim. He’s not a whole lot different from many of us. He had that entrepreneurial spirit just about bursting from the seams. Since you’re on this blog, I’m guessing that you know that feeling!
For those of you who have been reading my blog or who know me from YouTube, you know that I’ve been a used and rare book dealer since – wow… I think the early 1980s. So that’s a long time. You also know I’ve been a seller on eBay since January 1999.
I’ve had great success on eBay, and I’ve had so-so experiences as well.
I’m always keeping my eyes open for new opportunities, and new ways to market my inventory. I was intrigued by Jim Cockrum and his book for a few reasons (and not just because it’s only $5.92!).
First, you should know that Silent Sales Machine is not geared towards making money on eBay; rather, it’s about starting an Amazon business (and what NOT to do).
But, even though Jim no longer gears his work towards eBay (Amazon has become his focus), there is nothing wrong with incorporating a few ideas we just learned from Jim Cockrum in our eBay business. Frankly, I’m not going to be going the Amazon route, only because I don’t have the energy for it at this point.
But, for a lot of you, starting an Amazon business may be something you want to consider. If so, give this book a shot. If you can afford to buy a cup of designer coffee, you can probably afford $6 to get some new ideas. In fact, why not brew yourself a cup of coffee at home, and spend an hour or so reading Silent Sales Machine? The reviews are very good, and from what I know about Jim Cockrum over the last several years, he’s certainly worth listening to.
