Honest Truth About The Rainmaker Challenge (Jenny’s Story)
Jenny had no experience selling products on Amazon. She invested $20,000 and was able to earn over $100,000 in her first year with The Rainmaker Challenge.
Jenny shares that it is not a “get rich quick scheme” but the support she received from The Rainmakers made it worth it and how she was able to get her first organic sale in her first week!
1. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started with The Rainmaker Family?
I am a physical therapist by profession but in March of 2020, because of the lockdown, I had no choice but to give up my job and stay home with our sons. I was looking for online opportunities and I came across an ad for the Rainmaker challenge on FB.
2. Were you hesitant about working with Rainmakers at the beginning?
I was very nervous to jump in and apply for the Mastermind not just because of the financial investment but also because all of the business ventures I’ve entered before have failed.
But Chelsey and Stephen and the entire Rainmaker community were very positive and I knew I needed to be surrounded by like-minded people.
3. There are different ways of approaching Amazon through private labeling, wholesale, etc. What route did you take and how would you explain the process of how the method you chose works to a friend?
I chose the private labeling route because I wanted to create something of my own. I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur and wondered how other people do it.
Rainmaker paved the way for me to realize these dreams and from concept to creation, they have guided me through the process.
Each step of the journey was well outlined in the course and there are several ways to get help (coaching calls, posting a question in the group, reaching out to Rainmakers privately, etc).
Rainmaker taught me how to choose a product that I can sell based on data, find a manufacturer and negotiate, launch my product and how to manage it after launching.
4. Did you have any experience with this before getting started?
Not at all. I only knew how to sell my used items on Ebay.
5. Any Pros or Cons to working with The Rainmaker Family? Anything you wish the course had, but didn’t? Anything you’re especially grateful for?
When I joined Rainmakers in October 2020, it was still in the early stages and the coaching calls were not as often as it is now. I remember I had to be early on the calls and raise my hand on Zoom as soon as Stephen starts because there’s limited opportunity to get your question answered live.
But it has gone a long way since then. Now there are coaching calls Monday to Friday (sometimes 2x/day) and it’s based on the phase of your business. Stephen and Chelsey and the entire coaching team have thought about everything and they seriously don’t stop improving.
I am especially grateful for the positivity that the group provides and the community. Being in the Amazon FBA business can be stressful sometimes, and having a “family” to run to especially helps pick you up when you’re down.
6. How much did you invest before you saw any results?
I invested about 20k initially and I was able to get my 100K sales award in my first year.
7. Knowing what you know now about Amazon, do you think it is necessary to work with a coaching program like Rainmakers to get started or could you have done this on your own?
Yes, definitely! Amazon FBA is not a walk in the park. It’s not a “get rich quick scheme”. You have to be in it for the long game. There are several ups and downs, and Rainmakers provide you with the necessary information and support to overcome these struggles. Without the Rainmakers, I would have probably quit after 1 month.
8. After joining Rainmakers how long did it take for you to get your first sale?
I got my first organic sale within the first week of launching my first product.
9. How much have you earned since joining Rainmakers?
Roughly 200K gross sales.
10. What tools or resources are needed to become successful with the Amazon FBA program?
Helium 10 is a must have for all things Amazon from product research, to building your listing, to Pay-Per-Click ads to maintain your ranking. Fiverr is also my go-to for outsourcing parts of my business (designs, contracts, etc).
Of course, the Rainmaker app/dashboard because we pretty much have everything outlined there.
11. What does a typical day look like for you now?
I am typically selling about 1-2 per day now. My sales are a little slower than previous months. But that’s the thing about Amazon though, there’s ups and down. There’s days where I sell 8 units ($400+) and days where I sell 1-2 ($100+).
12. What advice would you give to someone who wants to become successful with Amazon FBA?
The key is to be consistent and keep building your business. Keep investing on improving yourself. Keep doing product research and you just might stumble upon some “golden keywords”.
13. What types of products do you sell, feel free to be as specific or broad as you’d like?
I sell the first ever Unicorn canopies and Mermaid canopies. I also sell Unicorn wall decals, Unicorn wall prints and Unicorn hair accesories
