Step by Step Road Map to Manufacturing and Sourcing Success. 

Does Alibaba drive you mad too? It drives me crazy!

This is an Alibaba SOS call.


For those of you that don't know me, I am Rick. I have been living and working in manufacturing since 2009. I don't really know I ended up here in South China, but 11 years later - still going.


In the beginning trying to source from Alibaba drove me mad, and it led to some monumental failures due to bad sourcing decisions. 

Half the time, I was getting the wrong quotes from the wrong factory and I didn't even know it. 

The key to being successful with your product and getting a good quote hinges on good planning, knowledge and making sure you are connecting with a factory that is best suited for the job.


I have to say this, but I still hate Alibaba. It still to this day drives me mad. You search for a product and you just see images. You have no idea if that image actually corresponds to what they can make or where they even are. 


I'm sure anyone who has used Alibaba will feel my pain. Not only that, but when you do finally get to talk to someone (if they respond to your messages) you feel like you are on the end of some automated chat response program, where your  questions are just met with stock one word answers. 


But it doesn't have to be that way. You can flip it on its head, so that not only are the suppliers responding to your queries, but they are actively looking to help you bring your ideas to life. 


I will empower you with the same knowledge, through my mistakes so you can source your own products quickly, efficiently at good prices, but more importantly with factories that are a right fit for you. And believe me, they are out there. 


 Whether you are running a small promotions company, have an online shop, selling on Amazon. The process is exactly the same. It never changes.


whats wrong with alibaba

When you do finally connect with someone on Alibaba your conversation goes a little bit like this? 


"Hey, I am looking to manufacture _______. Can you make _______s?" 

I know I used to do it too. You want to blast through the factories, copy and paste the same message and whoever responds, thats who you just sort of end up talking to.

This is unfortunately the wrong approach, because the message you are sending does not clarify you as a serious and well informed buyer, so the people that bite are often not legitimate suppliers. Well, organised streamlined factories know how to filter potential clients. 

It is very stressful and difficult to explain your idea to suppliers over an instant messaging service at the best of times, let alone when they are on the other side of the world and whose english is not their first language. 

Websites like Alibaba have established themselves as the norm now for sourcing and manufacturing. And there are some absolute gems out there. And I will help you find them.
