HERE’S THE 6 STEPS TO START SELLING ON AMAZON

These are the 6 steps I used for launching my first and second product. I will continue to use this process for future products and always share my new techniques along the way.

There’s Resources and Tools I discuss and share in the podcast. I’ve created a page that has all of them listed.

TOP TOOLS & RESOURCES FOR FBA PRIVATE LABEL SELLERS

I thought it would be helpful to create a resource page that you can always come to for all of your Private Label Seller needs. I’ll add to it as I learn more, but you’ll notice that in the future I will reference this page quite often. I recommend bookmarking it for your reference and convenience. Enjoy!

– This is a FREE tool that allows you to research keywords for search volume and demand for a product. This tool is also great for creating new campaign keywords for Amazon PPC campaigns.

PRODUCT SOURCING

This is website like Ebay, but for sourcing products. They make it real easy and allows you to get started with small orders to test, before investing larger amounts of money.

This is another website that allows you to connect with agents, suppliers and manufacturers.

ThomasNet –

This is another website for businesses to connect with suppliers.

LISTING OPTIMIZATION

When I first started in this business I didn’t know how important a properly optimized listing could affect sales and keyword ranking. After I purchased Amazon Advantage: Product Listing Strategiesby Karon Thackston, I realized there is so much I did wrong when creating my listing. From the keywords I used in the the copy to writing a benefit driven listing that converts higher.

I actually interviewed her on my podcast and she explained everything in simple terms. It can be listened to here on TAS Episode 86.

I recommend her book to anyone that wants to understand and write better listings.

Splitly is a tool that now allows us to Split Test various elements such as Images and Pricing and measure how they convert over time. Before this software was created you would have to manually change the element you were testing over the course of 2 to 3 weeks and then see what the results were. I’ve done it and it’s a pain, but worth it of you can 3x your sales from one tweak.

When I found out that Greg Mercer of Jungle Scout was behind this software, I jumped in and tried it right away. It’s Awesome and is super simple to set up and use.

PRODUCT DEAL SITES – SALES

Jump Send  – This deal site was created to allow sellers to connect with 1,000’s of shoppers looking for discounts and deals. The buyers are not required to leave reviews and conforms to Amazon’s new TOS.

Part of the launch process has been to give product discounts to help rank for keywords and get sales moving. Amazon has said you can still give discounts to customers, just not in exchange for reviews. So, using a deal site or your own email list to drive sales will be part of my NEW launch process.

I will update this section when more trusted deal sites become available.

BrandBuilders – BrandBuilders provides the perfect service for people either looking to get a Basic Brand Registry website built or someone looking to build an external channel to drive traffic and sales to Amazon. In the beginning if you want to register your brand on Amazon, you will need a website.

AMAZON BUSINESS SECURITY

Listing Eagle Listing Security System – Once you get your listing created and product selling you could encounter Hijackers that try and take over your listing. I’ve had this happen once and it was a slight pain in the butt.  After talking with a friend of mine (Jon Haver) who has had a HUGE problem with Hijackers, we started to brainstorm how we could prevent us or alert us if this happens. That is how Jon Listing Eagle was born and now it’s a service that is like your own personal watch dog.
