Probably the most common response I hear from people when I tell them about how much money I make selling on Amazon is, “I don’t know how to sell” or “that’s going to take me too long”. While the person uttering these words may think that’s true, let me tell you why it isn’t.
- Selling on Amazon is not like being a door knocking, cold call phoning sales person. There are no customers you have to face. There’s no beating the pavement everyday. You never even have to pickup a phone or send an email. You simply list your item for sale and wait for the buyer to make a purchase.
- Do you have 5 minutes in a day? Sure you do. Now, take that 5 minutes and walk around your home looking for something to sell. I can guarantee that you will find at least one item you no longer need. Typically this is a book, DVD, or CD. If you have kids, do they have any books they’ve out grown or no longe read. Take that item, find it on Amazon, list it for sale and you’re done. Then, when the email appears in your Inbox letting you know that someone has purchased your item, wrap it up and ship it off. If you were to put the entire sales process end-to-end, the TOTAL time it takes to sell one item is maybe 10 minutes.
The longest thing it takes to do is setting up your account at the very beginning. However, YOU DO THAT ONCE! Everything else from that point on is 10 minutes or less. Got 5 minutes right now?
