First of all – let me make something clear here. This is as much a reminder to myself as it is a challenge to you.
Today Amazon Seller Central and the Amazon Seller app aren’t showing your sales totals for the day and almost every FBA group on Facebook that I follow as well as my WhatsApp groups have had multiple people asking about it. Amazon knows that there is an issue and they are working on resolving it. You also can see your pending sales so you know that the FBA money is still rolling on in if you look close. (HelloProfit is still working too!)
The amount of time that has been wasted today with people freaking out about not being able to see their stats reminds me of back when I built automated AdSense websites which, for the most part was a numbers game. A common problem people would have is that they would build a bunch of sites – have a ton of traffic and then things would start to trail off because Google realized the sites were of low value and stopped sending traffic to their sites. The standard response and motivational speech that we started using amongst ourselves was to “STFU and build!” – referring to making more sites to replace the lost traffic.
That’s what I want to tell you today. Shut up and build your business. Stop doing things that aren’t going to impact your bottom line and concentrate on things that will. Stop refreshing your stats every five minutes and work on finding that next product to sell at a profit. Keep grinding!
Stop doing things that aren’t going to impact your bottom line and concentrate on things that will. Stop refreshing your stats every five minutes and work on finding that next product to sell at a profit. Stop getting distracted by Facebook. Stop worrying about the things you can’t control and start concentrating on the things you CAN control.
Shut Up and Build!
