eFLIP vs Zen Arbitrage – Why I chose eFLIP (Online Book Arbitrage Software)

What is eFLIP and Zen Arbitrage?

These are both pieces of software designed to make the end user money by 'flipping' books bought via lower priced merchant sellers to sell via Fulfillment By Amazon for a higher (sometimes much higher) price. 

First, to be clear I want to say that I had no pull to either one of these two pieces of software when I started to review them. I had only heard of eFLIP at first and since it was a software that just made sense to what my whole YouTube channel is about, I reached out to the creator Caleb Roth and asked him if he would set me up a trial account so I could demo the software.

A month went by at this point as I just had too many other priorities before I could really demo eFLIP. During this time, a viewer asked me whether or not I had tried Zen Arbitrage. I had not heard of it before so I looked into it and saw it was a similar product. Thus began my quest to demo BOTH softwares and promote only the best one on my channel / blog.

Things you should keep in mind as you read this

The first thing you need to know is my business is essentially 90% based around selling books. This is by far how I make most of my money. I'm not an 'affiliate marketer', even though I do promote a few tools that I find useful for my business. 

There are people whose sole income is their affiliation to software or other peoples products. This is not the case for me. I run my YouTube channel strictly as an on the side gig. I do not even monetize the channel with ads as I don't want to annoy viewers that don't use ad block software.

When I started to test Zen Arbitrage, I had already gotten a trial account setup for eFLIP (that would expire when my testing was done.) I could have simply went ahead and promoted eFLIP because I already put in some of the work. However, I really wanted to promote THE BEST software. I run my book business 40-60 hours a week and that brings in the money. You won't find me the type of person to be like 'I better jump on this opportunity because I've been allowed to review this software!' In fact, it's just the opposite.

I have a reputation and a name to protect. If I promote something that sucks, people are going to remember that. That's not what I'm all about. I bring a lot of value through my website and my YouTube channel which at this point has a little over 7000 subscribers. People come to me all the time wanting so and so promoted and I ignore 99% of them because the software or product is either garbage or doesn't align with what I talk about on my channel. What I'm saying is, I choose what I promote on this blog (and YouTube channel), not the other way around.
