You have probably heard stories about how some people have created 6 or 7 figure incomes  just from promoting Amazon products.  So of course many people want to know how to make money on Amazon.How to Make Money from Amazon

In 2015, Amazon surpassed Walmart as the most valuable retailer in the United States by market capitalization and is the fourth most valuable public company in the world, the largest Internet company by revenue and the eighth largest employer in the United States.

Selling Physical Products

If you want to promote physical products but you don’t want to carry stock and worry about delivery, you can use Amazon as your supplier, order processor, and product fulfilment company.

They actually do this very well, it’s called Amazon FBA (Fulfilment by Amazon) and thousands of people use them for exactly that.

Fulfilment By Amazon is a service introduced in 2015 that provides fulfilment for small, light items and even offers free standard shipping for items offered on the site by third-party sellers.

If you like the idea of dealing with physical products, it’s an ideal affiliate business model because you, don’t have to stock or ship products. And it works, as a recent study found that over 44% of respondents searching for products actually trust and buy from 

1. The Right Knowledge

You can skip the video if you are already selling on Amazon but just know that many people use the Amazon affiliate program because…

It Works

And it can work for you too. Because once you join Amazon’s affiliate program you only have to promote the products on your website and if your visitor uses your link to make the purchase through Amazon you get a commission on the sale. 

Joining an Amazon Affiliate program is pretty straight forward if you haven’t already done so, you can find out by going here:

The Problem 

However, due to the millions of products available on Amazon available for you to promote, the problem is;

“How do you work out which is the right product to sell?

Several years ago, selling on Amazon was a hit and miss affair. Sellers would have to learn what products to sell by using trial and error, they would list a product, see if it sold, if not, they would move to another, and this process wasted a lot of time. Obviously, that’s not the way to find good products to sell and the strategy is not really ideal.

ResearchHow to Make Money from Amazon

Everyone knows product research is the most difficult part of any e-commerce business, it’s not unusual for online business people to spend over 80% of their time researching products. But that’s a slow and  time-consuming process – Until Now!

2. The Right Tools

Fortunately, there is some software that can assist you with all that. The software is called Jungle Scout and it will help you make informed, educated decisions about what to promote, based on actual sales data and let’s you view all the data for any Amazon listings in a matter of minutes.

With the click of a mouse, you can see any product’s 

  • estimated monthly sales volume,
  • its Best Seller Rank,
  • its Sales Revenue

And much more that’s critical in identifying profitable opportunities for every Amazon product you may wish to consider promoting.

This saves you an incredible amount of time so that you can focus on ordering products and managing sales, instead of spending your time on product research.

This software gives you a more profitable way to make money from Amazon and allows you to promote with confidence, without the need for any more guess work.

    Is that true that so many people are earning 10k+ from Amazon? I know that amazon is one of the most popular and reputable seller but I must say that their comission rates are pretty low. Folks must have some big traffic coming to their site to be able to earn from amazon…

    • Peter

      Hello, Daniel. I don’t know how much people are earning each month from Amazon . However I do know that some are killing it with Amazon. I have highlighted the ways in which to greatly increase your income via Amazon using the tools I have recommended. Of course you still need to implement these tools and take the required action. But it’s highly probably that you could then make $10 K plus with amazon. Thanks for your comments and enjoy the PDF version of my book that is on its way to you. 🙂

  • ches

    Thanks for a really useful post on making money on amazon. I am actually an affiliate of amazon, but have failed to make hardly any money at all.
    I think I am so busy doing research for my content, I don’t seem to have the time to increase my traffic and to be honest, I’m not sure how to do it! I will need to bookmark your article so I can look at it thoroughly and at my leisure. I also have a problem dealing with amazon other than the UK. If I did manage to sell in the US or Canada for instance, I can only have any monies due paid by gift tokens which would be useless to me here in Britain.
    I am concerned about appearing to be an advertising site rather than a site to help others, which is my main objective. It is difficult to get the right balance but I would settle for just the site affiliations paying for the site bills. How many adverts do you think is a good number without giving the wrong impression?
    My niche is health based and although I write articles on other health subjects, I do only advertise my niche products, perhaps I should diversify. Great article, thanks for your efforts.

    • Peter

      Hello, Ches. There is no simple answer to your questions. Yes,  quality content is important and no you do not want to be a site just advertising Amazon products because there are millions of people already doing that. What’s important is the you build a following and how to do that is provide content that is interesting and compelling and give the reader the sense that you are an expert on your topic. Then they will come back to you for more advice and information. Once you have enough people ‘following you’ then you will get a few of them clicking on your links to if they feel the product will provide a solution for a problem they may have. 

      Another idea is to create a product review site where you actually review the product(s) you are wanting to promote, so that the reader can understand what it is they are buying or your answer some question about the product they are most likely wanting to know.

      Thanks again for your comments and I trust you will enjoy the eBook that is coming your way. 🙂

    you can certainly make a substantial income being affiliated to Amazon and i have seen the results of other people doing rather well. I am an affiliate with them but as yet not made any sales yet. Being accepted by them is another problem as they have a strict criteria to follow.As you have pointed out in your article that once you are in , the next battle is creating the right content and reviews to get customers to buy, that goes for any affiliate programme really, it is up to the individual to put the effort in.

  • Arta

    Hi Peter

    Thank you for the detailed and well-described guide on how to make money on Amazon. I know there are many courses, books and software out there to help with this but as always – a lot of stuff available out there will give you small to no benefit at all. it seems to me you are promoting legit tools so I will have a closer look at your products to study this deeper. As in order to succeed, all of the three things you mention are of extreme importance.

    • Peter

    I’ve bookmarked the Videlligence website. It seems very promising. How does it work; does it simply grab headers for main points and use regular text as the body? I’m very intrigued. Please get back with me; I will be checking this page periodically awaiting your response! Thanks so much for writing this article!

    • Peter

      Hello, Kenneth. Yes, that’s right it quickly grabs the required text and creates a powerpoint type slide show as a video of the product highlighting the features. There is a sample and an example on the sales page that you can view prior to purchase so you understand exactly ho it works. Feel free to check it out. Thanks for your comments. 🙂

    Wow, Peter. I learned so much from this post!

No rent, no product inventory, no order fulfillment…did I get that all right? I am going to bookmark this site and visit often. I think there is a lot you can teach me.

    • Peter

      Hello, Annie.  Thanks for your comments. It’s only $170 if you pick up all of my recommendations. You might do it for much less, but you will have more work to do. So yes, investing $170 will get you on the fast track. Pleased you have enjoyed the article. Watch you inbox for the eBook that is coming your way for leaving a comment. 🙂

    I just went through the entire content of this web page and learned further about making money with Amazon, though I have been preparing to figure things out about Amazon associate central already.
