Demystifying The Liquidation Business: It’s a Whole Lot Sexier Than You Think | Damian Polak

May 15, 2023

In this episode, Stephanie Beringhele interviews  Damian Polak, the founder of Nice Find Wholesale. Stephanie and Damian Discuss:

  • 01:16: Launching a liquidation in 2020, during COVID, and the opportunity it brought.
  • 02:41: Large scale liquidation is where the money is made. Big box retailers – Amazon, Target, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Walgreens, and CVS need to get rid of great products. 
  • 03:47: You’d be surprised where you can make money on – and you’d be surprised what you get!
  • 07:26: The liquidation space is often looked down upon, it has a negative connotation. But you actually can find brand new, high quality merchandise. 
  • 08:35: How YouTube and LinkedIn have become critical to growth and sales. 
  • 09:16: How social media drives marketing because there’s such a wide gap in retail tech. 
  • 10:05: Why YouTube is the #1 channel you need to invest in if you’re limited on ad budget.
  • 12:36: Building nice business connections on LinkedIn.
  • 13:00: What you put out into the world is what you’re gonna get back. 
  • 13:29: Don’t waste time creating social content. Don’t get caught up in mental blocks and monetization. Just start creating. 
  • 15:00: Why ASD is a completely different type of show.
  • 16:35: The money is always made on the buy.
