Eric Walsh, an uber-successful entrepreneur and 7-figure Amazon seller, is sharing the step-by-step secrets of his success with the public with his new digital offering, the Genius Academy. We sat down with Eric to get the scoop on his journey to enormous Amazon success, and why he decided to offer the Genius Academy to beginner sellers looking to start and build 5, 6, and 7-figure Amazon businesses.
Why do you believe everyone should create a digital product?
Every single one of us has some sort of skill set that consists of a wealth of knowledge. People will pay to learn from your experience to fast track their learning. Whether you are a ballet dancer, a car salesman, a landscaper, a master at buying and reselling phones online, a health and wellness expert, a relationship guru, or a network marketing pro—everyone has something that somebody else would be willing to pay for.
Whether you create an e-book, a PDF, an audio file, a five-step course, a word document, a done-for-you service, etc., that product can be sold thousands and thousands of times over. Let’s say you created an e-book on how to create a vegetable garden that grows the healthiest produce for you and your family while saving you money, and you charge $9.99 for access. It is now available to be sold over and over again for life. You could put it on an e-commerce platform like Amazon, generating you a wealth of income for years to come. All this off a product you created one time using the knowledge you already have.
Take an Amazon masterclass like mine. It’s a high-ticket item. In it, I break down every step to build and scale a successful Amazon business. My product has the power to change people’s lives forever, proven by the success stories of former students. You could create a $1,000 course like I did, and you only need to sell it to 100 people to make $100,000.
Creating and selling a digital product is an automated business with infinite growth potential. Whether your digital product is $9.99 or $1,000, somebody out there is searching for it right now, seeking the information that you have inside your mind.
In today’s world, fewer and fewer jobs require a college degree and more and more people are dropping out of college or not even going to college at all. Creating digital courses is the new footprint in education. You can get a digital course like mine on how to scale to a five, six, even seven-figure Amazon business for less than the cost of one college class that you will likely never remember. You can refer back to a digital product like mine over and over again, applying the steps as you go. Who wouldn’t want a product like that?
Why would anyone purchase a digital course when free resources like YouTube exist?
You might think, “Eric, all of the information is out there on YouTube for free.” The key thing to understand is that the consumer does not necessarily want to spend their time trying to find bits and pieces of the information they need which might be found in various videos from multiple content creators on YouTube. When they’re watching videos from different people about building and scaling a successful Amazon business, it’s difficult to determine who is the real deal and who is not. The information is scattered all over the place. By showing the consumer the value that you offer, your digital product will make their life much easier than scouring YouTube.
People will pay almost anything for a product that will make their life easier. If I had a crystal ball and could guarantee every single person that attends my free Amazon training that six months from now they would be $60,000 richer, you’d give me $10,000 right now. It’s essential to prove how much value you are providing to gain the trust of your customers so they are willing to pay for it.
What made you decide to create the Genius Academy Masterclass?
Number one, I want to provide people with the opportunity to create an extremely lucrative passive income and experience more freedom in their lives. But I’d be lying if I said that the opportunity to make huge profits wasn’t a close second. The product can sell an infinite amount of times, making me enormous amounts of money, while changing the lives of people all around the world.
For me, there is no greater feeling than helping change people’s lives for the better. I believe that the more you give and provide for others, the more it will come back to you in the future, one way or another. There’s no better combination than to impact people’s lives and make money while doing it.
