Creating and building a business is not for the faint of heart. Building up over 12 businesses to the tune of more than $20million per year in revenue is… well, it’s amazing! Properly using online marketplaces other than Amazon and eBay can mean a significant difference in your business revenue. Aleksejs Leal has spent the last several years finding ways to command alternative international marketplaces to sell his private label products and he’s ready to teach you how to do the same.
Aleksejs started his online selling business after immigrating to the U.S. from Latvia and completing his degree at Florida International University. He and two of his college friends ventured into eComm by opening a website to sell vitamins and supplements all in one place, and his passion for selling grew from there.
Now a significant piece of his business is housed in Amazon selling, exports, and selling in international online marketplaces like Mercado Libre. He shares everything from why it’s not too late to break into that market to how to protect your private label sales with their new protection program. Learn how to set up your marketplace and how to get started with creating your first listing.
As with all things in the online space, Mercado Libre is an ever-changing platform. To be successful in selling within their rules and regulations you’ll have to stay on top of those changes, but as with all things that require work, the payoff is worth it. Aleksejs is even willing to help you get started! Listen to the end to find out how you can get in touch with him outside of the Wizards of Amazon Meetup group!
