If you answered yes to any of these questions, this is the course for you!

Welcome to one of the most detailed and comprehensive Alibaba course on Udemy! With over 4 hours of HD video! 

Are you stuck with getting your Alibaba based import business off the ground and need a little help?  Or,
Have you tried to buy on Alibaba before and failed, found yourself a victim of a nasty scam? Or,
Are you just an intrigued, knowledge seeking and personal development orientated type of person and just want to learn something new!

No matter how you answered, the questions above this course would help you achieve your importation business goal.

The first time I encountered Alibaba, I looked and thought it was a scam! I could not believe my eyes. I quickly realized how ripped off I had been locally sourcing my products.

This course has been designed to take you as a novice or intermediate and boost you to a personal mini-expert in the field! First, you will learn some tricks to the trade that will set you apart as a pro these tips will give you the best chance of success so please do not take them lightly. After you are set up and ready to go we will then roll on to the actual interface it and I will show you around Alibaba and give you some insight into how we as importers can use it to look for suppliers, find a good supplier with the capability to make the product and how we avoid the scammers.

You will also receive 7 product suggestions with a few that are great for someone getting started and some more for the intermediates in the class. Once you have these product ideas, I will then show you how you can use Amazon to find all of the best selling product. I will then speak to how to keep up with current trends and run a sustainable business. 

After this, we will look into the ways that you can sell your products to recover your money and make your nice ‘little’ profit margin sometimes up to 1000% (Very few products with great business planning. This is not a get rich quick scheme. Most products run around 250% or less)  I will also talk about import tax and business structures. Sadly I am not an Accountant, so I cannot give you specific advice, but I can give a general rule and show you some industry hacks to save time.    

Updates – On top of this if you still do not feel satisfied that this course will cover everything you are after. Have a look at the Updates Section! I personally know the importance of having a highly relevant course that is up to date, full of useful information and teaches what the students want to learn. This is why I regularly post updates to the course covering a range of different topics in quick and to the point lectures! I have made it very easy to request these updates as well, and all are based on what the students in this course want to learn!

Do not worry if you are not a business minded person! I also include a tonne of business tips such as my brand new cost-benefit analysis section! I look forward to seeing you in the course!

If I still have not answered your question, please let me know, and I will happily explain anything about the course to you.

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

  4. Vincent Beaudet

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Alica Cverdeľová

    I love this course, Angela explained it very easily and clearly from the beginning, but I loved her 1 minute final videos, which ended later: What a pity.
    BUT I felt a little disappointed now with the project Day 39/40. Where I was maximally lost, I could not come out of where to look for anything and it was poorly explained and the biggest mistake was that there were no videos with explanations, I think it was quite a complicated project where many things were used and no explanation, only the final results. And they carried a few things in the projects before, so I had her project run once and it showed her the mistake as well as me, so in that case you have to leave it at that and what else is a shame. It’s hard to do a project when you don’t see what’s going on there.
    I’m a little worried about the next few weeks, and I hope it won’t be a waste of time.

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
