SOURCE IN ASIA -
NEXT TRIP SPRING 2018

 
THE ONLY SOURCING TRIP TO PROVIDE A VETTED PROFESSIONAL SOURCING AGENT TO EACH AND EVERY PARTICIPANT
What is the Source In Asia Experience?
Spend Five Days Discovering the Yiwu Marketplace -
The Secret Sourcing Marketplace For Many Top Amazon Sellers 
 Build a Working Relationship With Your Own Private Sourcing Agent !

When it comes to sourcing products for Amazon, the Yiwu Market in China is one of the best places to source for small wholesale commodity items. Yiwu is located in the Zhejiang province and is commonly said to be “a sea of commodities, a paradise for shoppers.”  

Our agents live and work in Yiwu. They have been trained to work with Amazon sellers. Source In Asia Agents know their way around the marketplace and they know how to negotiate on your behalf.

Why Do I Need My Own Agent?

The Yiwu Marketplace is a year round marketplace with over 60,000 vendors. It is 5 blocks long and 6 stories high. Our agents live and work in Yiwu full time. They know how to navigate the marketplace and how to find you products long after your've returned home!  


Why do YOU NEED A SOURCING AGENT and not JUST A TRANSLATOR?

Agents will:

  • Procure & Consolidate Orders / Samples from Yiwu
  • Negotiate Fair Prices
  • Help Customize Packaging 
  • Inspect Goods at the Factory
  • Coordinate Product Modifications 
  • Coordinate Logistics
  • Coordinate/ Consolidate Payment to Suppliers
  • Investigate Product Certifications
  • Seek Out New Product Offerings From Suppliers After You Have Returned Home
  • and much much more!

Other trips offer you a “translator” while you are in the market and “access to" one sourcing agent to help you get the items you find delivered to you later. But that agent won’t guide you through the market everyday and certainly can't spend 4 days with each participant establishing on ongoing business relationship.

The “translators” most trips offer are young girls studying to be primary school teachers. They have No business experience and many have NEVER been to Yiwu! All of our agents are fluent in Mandarin and English and as importantly FLUENT in business and in the Yiwu market!

In the Yiwu Marketplace, you need more than a translator. You need a professional sourcing agent. One agent per seller. No need to share with 40-100 other sellers, no struggling to explain business to an up and coming school teacher. You get your own agent and the next most valuable team member in your growing Amazon business.

How Can We Offer This Amazing Trip 
at Such A Low Price?
We were told by "the gurus" to charge $15K for this trip since we are the ONLY trip to offer professional agents to each seller who attends.
But we are not so far removed from the experience of being new sellers or sellers who are trying to expand their brands and we know cash flow can be an issue.
We priced the trip so that with the help of a professional sourcing agent you can find deals in Yiwu that make your investment back in a couple short months. Elena personally found an item in Yiwu that she sourced on her own for $6.95. Her agent found the item for $3.00 with customized high end packaging included! Deals like that are not unusual. That means she would have paid for the cost of this trip with one order of 1650 units!
No one else is offering vetted professional sourcing agents to each and every participant.  
We can because Simon Chan has had relationships with agents in Yiwu for over 15 years. He is able to vet the agents and make sure what you are quoted is what you get, no back room deals, no shenanigans. 

Our group will be small, firm cut-off at 40 participants. It's not about us making as much money as possible, it's about helping you get in the game and if you’re already well into the game, its about helping you scale your business to a whole new level.

Testimonials From Previous Trips

"We built a future relationship with this agent ..."

I have been to many courses around the world. Source in Asia was different in that each person was allocated a highly proficient English speaking sourcing agent, not just a translator. We built a future relationship with this agent who is part if a large network that can do everything from photography to shipping. I would highly recommend Elena and Simon.

Watch to the end to hear what Source In Asia participants say when they think no one else is listening!!

"Sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs to find a prince..."

I made two sourcing trips to Yiwu this year with different trip organizers, and I must say that Source in Asia really knows how to guide a newbie to get the most out of the trip. The organizers and the mentors were all very accessible for questions and even private counsels. They also did a very good job explaining the unique nature of the Yiwu market so I was able to adjust my expectations to target the right kind of products the market is best at offering. 

The biggest advantage Source in Asia gave me was to pair me up with an experienced sourcing agent during the trip. Her knowledge of the market made it possible for me to find all my products in half the time I spent, compared to the first trip. Given the size of the market, it saved me several miles of walking each day! Additionally, she was experienced enough to let me know some of the products I was looking for would be better sourced from other parts of China. Another huge saving of my time and walking!

Sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs to find a prince. I am glad I found this group through word of mouth. Great value!
