Amazon is the most popular eCommerce platform where you can find almost anything you can think of. It’s the go-to place for online marketers who wants to sell the product of their choice on their websites. However, having an online site is not a hindrance to sell on Amazon. You can still make it without one. Here are 4 steps to make money fast with Amazon without a website.
First of all, you need to have an Amazon Associate account. If you don’t have one yet, you need to register an account here. If you have an existing account but it has been closed or blocked for whatever reason, you can sign up for a new account using a different email address.
The signup process for new associates will take some time because you need to provide billing details, tax information, etc. Once you complete your sign up, you can move on to the first step to make money with Amazon.
Step1: Choose Your Product to Promote
Once you are in the associate back office, you can search for any product you want. You would want to target products that have the potential to sell with the biggest possible commission. Here is how to find a profitable product to sell on Amazon.
- Reviews are a good indicator of the product or the category of the product is selling well.
- The keywords in the niche of your choice should be strong. Once you have chosen a product, use the Google keyword planner and Google Trends to check if that keyword has a good search volume. For example, Graco baby car seat has an average monthly search volume of 100-1000 and a steady search trend over the past 12 months which shows this could be a potential product to promote.
- If the product that you target is highly competitive it would be best to avoid promoting it because you will be competing with big brands and more establishes marketers. It will be difficult for you to rank against them and sell your item. Choose products that are between $50 above so that your percentage of commission will be higher. In the case of Graco baby car seat, the price ranges from $25 to $200. Not so bad!

So what will you talk about in the video?
- You can review the product as a whole – you can talk about the use, the reviews it has got, the price point, the pros and cons, why should some buy the product and what does solution does it deliver.
- Do a comparison review. Every product has an alternative match either a different model or a similar function. Create a video that compares the product that you are promoting to a competitor product. This is an opportunity for you to down-sell or upsell another item. Just in case, your potential buyers are not interested in your product, they may go ahead and buy the other item.
- Talk about the product-specific feature. What material is the product made of? Is the product waterproof? How durable is the item? What makes it different from other similar models?
