One of the best ways to make money online is by selling Amazon products. What’s so cool about Amazon is that everyone trusts them. They have a great return policy, and they’re seen as an ethical company. Not only that, but Amazon is one of the most recognizable brands on the Internet, along with eBay and Google.
One problem a lot of marketers have when selling either hard products or digital, downloadable products on the Internet, is credibility. Who are you? And why should a buyer trust you? Using PayPal as your method of payment helps, but still. How does your buyer know you will actually honor your return policy?
Selling Amazon products solves this issue. With Amazon’s good name, how can you lose?
So, how do you get started selling Amazon products? What should you sell? How should you sell them? Let’s take a look at these and other questions.
Here are a few tips to help you get started selling Amazon products.
Tip 1: Decide what you’re going to sell. With Amazon that’s actually pretty easy. You can get a list of Amazon’s bestsellers for each of their categories.
Once you’re there, you can browse and find out what’s selling. Not just books! But everything that they sell, groceries, electronics, shoes, whatever is your thing.
Let’s talk about how to do that.
On the bestsellers’ page, you’ll see a list of category links on the left-hand side. You can click those and dig down into Amazon’s categories and sub-categories and find out what people are buying. In other words, Amazon can tell you the best way to sell Amazon products.
Tip 2: How do you actually sell these products? Your choices are as varied as there are ways to sell anything on the Internet. If you’re adventurous and have a little money to spare, you can build a simple website (a blog will do) where you review certain products, then use PPC (pay-per-click) marketing to drive traffic to that website. If you don’t want to risk any money, then use article marketing to drive traffic. Just write some good general information type articles and include a link to your site at the bottom of the article.
Tip 3: So, sounds great! Selling Amazon products is easy. (It’s also profitable!) Some internet marketers are making five figures essentially on autopilot through Amazon. How do you get started? First off, log onto Amazon’s home page, scroll down to the bottom and click on “Join Associates”. Follow the instructions and become an Amazon affiliate. Next, get a simple blog, and host it yourself or somewhere like Blogger. Read Amazon’s great information about their products, especially the comments, write a review and post it on your site. Include links to Amazon.
