2. SELLING ON AMAZON
Yes, this is a huge opportunity for the freelancer who loves to show and who loves a bargain.
We are working on a simplified online course that will help you get starter selling and making money quickly as possible.
There are a couple ways you can find products to sell on Amazon:
1. Retail arbitrage – is where you find items in local stores or online that are on sale or clearance. You purchase these items and then turn around and resell it on Amazon for a higher price.
2. Private label – you purchase products in bull from the manufacturer or wholesaler company and sell them as your own products. This requires a little more investment off the top. You will need a small nest egg of your own funds for this Avenue.
We are in the process of testing out the Amazon FBA, so we will keep you posted. However, we have read many success stories. Nevertheless, my recommendation is to start out utilizing retail arbitrage until you’re comfortable with the process.
The process is very handy. Once you have purchased your products, you prep them, and ship them to Amazon and they list them on their site. When your product sells, Amazon will ship it to the customer for you and you get your percetage of the final sale minus their feesn.
