But if the key to success is being able to turn bad experiences into life changing victories, Carey's got that in spades.
Thanks to that day, he developed Fresh Store Builder.
It's the most successful Amazon store ever, and right now he's in the middle of launching version 7:
Amazon's one of the easiest ways to make a bit of extra coin online.
They provide all the products and deal with shipping.
Their 'related products' feature is the best one going, giving you extra commissions.
It's incredibly easy to sign up.
And Fresh is the easiest way to make money with Amazon.
You can set the store up in 30 minutes or less.
There's a bazillion different features - all the years of development really show. Fresh can do more than any other Amazon store.
You've got full control over EVERYTHING... products, appearance, the works.
...but if you want something on autopilot, it can do that too. Finding and updating all the products for you.
And unlike most stores, the autopilot version really works:
"I set up FSB since last year Q4 with 30+ products and 5 content pieces with spin-rewriter. Totally forgotten about it until I just remembered it now and here's the awesome results! It's literally my FIRST online income that's completely AUTOMATED!" Anyhow, here's some of my favourites:
- Pinterest linking: Pinterest is the BEST social network for buyer traffic, and Fresh can create and update a pinboard for you on autopilot
- Custom buy links: found a better affiliate program for one of your products? Just send your traffic there
- Facebook page integration: Tap into the biggest source of traffic going... automatically updated with new products and deals
- Multiple templates: And they're all mobile-ready, right out of the box
- Ajax Cart: When your visitors add a product to their cart, there's no page refresh - it just appears. It's the smoothest experience of any online store, meaning higher conversions for you.
- Spin-rewriter integration: auto-spin Amaozn descriptions to get unique content without needing to write your own
- Country redirect: send visitors to the right store and country
- Easy installer: it takes 3 minutes, if you're going slow
- Extended smart search: automatically show related products from Amazon even if they're not on your store, so you never miss out on commissions
- Remote shopping cart: THIS IS HUGE - you get a 90-day cookie, for more conversions and commissions
- Visual editor: want to adjust a template? The visual editor gives you complete control without having to touch a line of code
- Custom images: make your listings stand out and get an edge over the competition
- Newsletter: integrates with Aweber, GetResponse, MailChimp and more to build a real asset for your business
- Customer reviews: visitors can now add reviews directly to your website, giving you even more unique content
- Customisable related products: cross-promote products of your choice for even higher commissions
