Selling online is a popular go-to solution for many people who need extra cash. It’s also an effective way to set up a business. Many people swear by it. Freedom Ticket webinar lecturers Kevin King and Manny Coats actually made six and seven figures by selling on Amazon.
Amazon is a popular selling platform for many reasons. Some of these are:
Ease of Use
Selling on Amazon is a breeze. The process is simple and hassle-free. You don’t have to be a tech expert to understand how it works.
Access to Consumers
It’s a no-brainer that physical businesses need to be where their target market is. By selling online, you don’t need to play catch-up with your market. Creating a presence on Amazon will give you access to its many users.
Amazon is an international selling platform popular in many countries outside the USA. By providing international shipping, you could make money by fulfilling orders made from the other side of the world.
What Should You Do?
It might seem like a good idea to be an Amazon seller now, but don’t do it just yet. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with being an Amazon seller, you still need to ask yourself a few questions before jumping into the marketplace melee. Have you done your research already? Do you know which products are flying off the (digital) shelves and which are collecting dust? Did you review Amazon’s policy for sellers?
If you’re having a hard time figuring out what will keep the cash flowing in, dig around a little. The easiest way to do that is to go to Amazon’s bestsellers page. There, you’ll see the most popular products for each category.
In 2017, a Business Insider article revealed that the most popular products on Amazon Prime were tech-related…even the cookware! Unsurprisingly, the number 1 selling product was Amazon Echo.
With technology continually being front and center in nearly all aspects of our lives, you might want to consider selling tech-related things. That’s just one suggestion, though. You could find more suggestions out there. What are you waiting for? Get digging and may you find success through Amazon.
