Hey all,

I'm in the middle of setting up my Amazon business and I was hoping to skip a lot of the mistakes that I'd inevitably be making.

Since there seems to be an info product for every aspect of internet business out there, can anyone recommend a reputable and at least somewhat proven and program/product teaching the ins and outs of selling your own branded products on Amazon.com?

Thanks!

Doron

    Actually, Nate Rivers has a pretty solid course on being an Amazon affiliate. Its cheap too.

    He's somewhere here on the warrior forum.

    AMZ training academy is a great course for amazon affiliates. Not sure if that applies directly to you but worth checking out

      Actually, I'm not looking to learn about their affiliate/associates program, but rather learning how to effectively and profitably become an actual seller of products on the site, ideally private label stuff.

      Thanks guys!

    I think its better to have a little course on it. because you can totally know about the ins and outs of Amazon. If you really want to become an actual seller on site then you have to learn about it properly. And for that you have to join courses.

      Is there a specific course that you'd recommend?

      Hi dorono,

      A legitimate course that has received great reviews and has some of the top Amazon "gurus" in it is the Proven Amazon Course. (Proven Amazon Course - brought to you by Jim Cockrum of MySilentTeam.com - not an affiliate link)

      It's pricey, but it sounds like what you're looking for.

      If you are just getting started, you need to verify that your product is not already in the Amazon catalog, which it sounds like yours aren't, since they are your own products.

      Then, there are a few details you'll need to figure out, BEFORE you list your items, like where to get UPC codes for your products. (you can Google that)

      The rest is actually pretty simple, you are basically filling out a listing form and answering questions about your product.

      It really is not difficult listing / selling on Amazon, and they provide great tutorials for each step of the process, but if you want an advanced course, (which includes info on Amazon's FBA program) I would say check into that Proven Amazon Course.

      I know a fellow who sells furniture on Amazon who really knows all the ins and outs. I was actually going to try to nail him down to build an info product around him.

      Is your plan to do FBA? Do you have any competitive angles?

      I think the key is listing you product everywhere you can list it. Including buying and setting up multiple UPC symbols to set up the same product in multiple ways. Finding all the current listings for your product and listing it with all of them.

      I also think there is a way to control or only get good reviews but I don't know the ins and outs. Maybe its by only sending requests for reviews to very happy customers..I also think with FBA there is a way to set rules to adjust your pricing based on the competition and their inventory.

      I would be glad to reach out to him to ask what he would charge to train someone in privately if you would like. I am pretty sure he sells millions and much of it on Amazon.
      I just ran some searches for his brands on Amazon and it seems that he does alot of Amazon Ads driving people to his website...

      I would say the best advice though is to learn the hard way and just start selling, and you'll figure it out as you go, Make sure to go the extra mile (throw a small free gift like a box of mike and ikes in your shipped orders and a handwritten thank you for your business note, and other small gestures to win your customers hearts... and maybe run some searches about optimizing for Amazon Search, and targeting Niches that many amazon affiliate are promoting... I would run some google searches and see which amazon pages and products are ranking well, and try to sell those products...

      I would also encourage you to sell for really cheap before you build a reputation to get the first 5-10 reviews, and once you have a few positive reviews, than raise your prices to where they belong relative to your competitors and their rankings, and test, test, test!!!!

      Stick to the fundamentals of all marketing and you should do just fine...

    This is not an info product, but if you want to learn how to set up your business on Amazon, this book is a good source: Amazon.com: Sell on Amazon: A Guide to Amazon's...Amazon.com: Sell on Amazon: A Guide to Amazon's...

    The book is quite comprehensive and it covers all aspects how to set up business on Amazon. It's a good book for beginners.

    This is great info, guys, much appreciated!

    I'm still trying to figure out whether I'll be using FBA. I'm working with my dad who suggests it's too soon to deal with FBA and their fees, but on the other hand it seems like FBA would get us out the gate with incredible customer service and free shipping plus Amazon Prime benefits.

    As far as competitive angles, we plan on private labeling our own products, which are competitive in terms of quality. The focus is going to be on quality at a fair price, but not the 'race to the bottom" of competition based solely on price.

    There are various ways of starting an Amazon business including becoming an affilate for products sold on Amazon and selling products on Amazon. I think you are aiming for the latter of the two.

    You can find a book called "Sell on Amazon: A Guide to Amazon's Marketplace, Seller Central, and Fulfillment by Amazon Programs" by Steve Weber which sells on Amazon and is quite popular with good reviews. Maybe that is what you are looking for. Wish you all the best with your Amazon business!

    I'm pretty sure Amazon themselves have the expertise you require. No better source than from the horses mouth.
