Okay so today we shall be looking at how to find best selling products on Amazon, as your starting point.

Yesterday, I got an email from one of my students asking how they could find best selling products on Amazon. You see, I have been teaching that one quick way to build a business on Amazon is to start selling on Amazon, using information that Amazon already provides you. Amazon has what is known as best selling products. And there is a way in which you can find these out. One way to do this is by using Google search.

So what do you do to get this information…

Simple, just go too and search for “Amazon best sellers”. This will bring up a list of categories on Amazon and the 100 top best selling products in each of those categories. What you then do is to perform a market research and see if any of those products are of interest to you. To do this you can use google trends or google insights. This would give you an idea of how popular an item really is. If you have then found an item that has a trend showing that the popularity of the item is increasing or remains relatively constant, then you might have a winner.

What you do next is to look at the item itself. How many other competitors are selling a similar product. Does the brand currently have a lot of reviews. What are people saying about the product. is it possible to bring a matching offer that can better the performance of this item. These are the things you ask yourself. If all the responses to these questions are positive, then you just look for a supplier who you can buy a few similar products to test the market.

I must stress here that, always test your product. Don’t buy more than 3 or 5 units to test with. If these units once listed on your Amazon sellers account have sold through, then you can increase the quantity to say 20 units. If the 20 units sell out then you can order 50 units or say 100 units, depending on your budget. Then once you know you have sufficient stock in your seller account, then you’d want to ramp things up by promoting this product aggressively.

So as you can see you can find best sellers on amazon really quick. And if you really want a short cut to these best sellers page on amazon, just click here.


Selecting Your Amazon Best Selling Product.

Selecting Your Amazon Best Selling Product.

Hope you have been reading all the other posts on this blog as it will help you get started pretty fast making money online selling physical products on Amazon.

There are some criteria you need to know about before you go about selecting your target product from Amazon’s best seller list:

1. Make sure the price on the item you want to test is not lower than $7.

it the price of the item is lower than $7, then you would have very little margin to play with when you decide to launch your product.

2. Make sure the price on your target product is not over $40.

The reason being that, it’s harder to sell a $40 product that a product that’s selling for $17.99

3. Make sure there are not too many competing offers. what I mean by that is make sure that there are no more than 3 other sellers listing the product.

(if you have your own brand of product or you have a product branded for you, by your supplier) then you don’t have to worry about this. If it’s your brand, then you’ll most likely be the only person selling this product on Amazon anyway.

Once you have chosen your product based on these criteria as above, then you’re ready to proceed to the next step…

Stay tuned…
