If you’re an Amazon or ecommerce seller who wants to build a sustainable online business that you can potentially exit, you must differentiate your products from your competition.

Selling me-too products sourced from the same factories everyone else is buying them from is most likely going to end in a price war to the bottom.

So how do you find product ideas and keywords that are not yet saturated on Amazon, and are potentially more profitable? 

  • You go to a place most other sellers don’t have easy access to
  • A place that is renowned for producing high quality, hand-made exquisite products
  • A country where each state has its own unique style of handicrafts
  • Where you can find a plethora of eco-friendly options across a variety of categories

                            You go to:

India is already a major exporter to retailers, distributors and wholesalers around the world.
 
It is now time for Amazon and eCommerce sellers to venture into India and discover the untapped private label opportunities the country has to offer.
 
And what better way to explore this sourcing market than to go there yourself
 
Come join us on India Sourcing Trip and see these differentiated products for yourself. 
 
Meet face-to-face with suppliers at an export-focused exhibition, see, touch and feel the products for yourself, compare & negotiate prices and lead times, and even place orders. 
 
While you’re there, attend an exclusive and extensive India sourcing conference, and learn from industry-leading experts and others who are importing from India successfully.
 
To top it off, experience the rich and colorful culture of this mystical nation.

A First-of-its-Kind Sourcing Experience

You simply cannot get this kind of value and instant results such as these when you source online. You can either take a few years and potentially expensive mistakes to learn it all by yourself.

  • Let top ecommerce coaches help you find “Amazonable” products
  • Speed up your sourcing by shortlisting hundreds of products at the fair
  • Find new suppliers for existing products you source from China to diversify sourcing risk
  • Learn all about sourcing from India – the pitfalls to avoid, supplier verification and vetting, negotiating, logistics, quality control, payment terms, and much more
  • Know which products can be sourced from India, and where the production hubs are
  • Understand the differences between India and China sourcing
  • Meet and network with suppliers and sourcing service providers
  • Get up-to-date strategies for product selection, branding and marketing from Amazon and ecommerce coaches from the US, UK and Australia traveling with the group
  • Visit a factory to see first-hand how products are made 
  • Immerse in India’s rich culture and history – watch and participate in an entertaining dance show, and visit the iconic Taj Mahal
  • Share experiences with other like-minded sellers in the group, learn from each other and make lifelong friendships
