Summary

Just getting started with product research and sourcing? Stuck trying to find ideas or find that "perfect" winning product? Want to find good selling products that others are ignoring? Interested in wholesale or private label products? If you answered yes, then this book is for you.

If you are an experienced seller or are looking to do arbitrage, this book will have less value as I don't discuss sourcing by arbitrage. I don't do arbitrage, so I don't teach it. This book is written for the new or struggling seller wanting to source wholesale or private label products.

What you will learn:

Basic steps for finding top-selling products

How to generate product ideas and look for trends

How to validate demand

Tips for finding suppliers

Analyzing data to help you pick a product

It took me five months of research before I pulled the trigger on my first products to sell on Amazon. Five months and countless hours. I have pages of notes with product ideas in many different categories. Some were wholesale products, others were ideas for my own products. I had some money set aside to buy inventory. But I couldn't commit. I was looking for...not necessarily the perfect product, but, well yeah, the perfect product.

Fear of choosing "wrong" was holding me back. I knew that product selection was key to success so I needed to choose right. Another part of the problem was I had bigger ideas - I wanted to create a brand and I had some ideas as to what sorts of products I would carry. But those ideas required more capital than I was willing to invest for my first product. As a result, I put so much pressure on myself to dream big and think towards the future that I did nothing!

I'm new to this

I'm brand new to wanting to sell on Amazon and I feel like this book has given me the tools to be successful. It's a clear understanding and its not one of those hype books to make you think you can get rich quick. She breaks everything down from how to find products, where to get wholesale products, and how to rank your products. I would def recommend it.

Educational

I didn't know what to expect from this book and audible. Some reviews was not good. But listening and reading along I see Renae had some points and value. Once I go over it again and do it step by step I believe I can be successful. I like her book because it like having a reference book beside you. I like how she mention Chris Green as a reference to arbitrage. Even people on youtube has mention Chris Green as the best source when it comes to arbitrage or retail arbitrage. I truly enjoyed the book and audio. Hope to hear more from Renae in the near future. W Jacobs

Must have for first time amazon sellers.

I had been scouting YouTube and Google for the necessary information a first time amazon seller needs to get started but everything seemed outdated and inconsistent. I decided start reading published material as I believed the content would be more reliable. Fortunate for me, this was the first book I stumbled upon during my search. The author provided great tips and resources.

Helpful, honest, resourceful book- really rare

I usually don’t write reviews. But this book is different. It’s more like an expensive course than a general reference source. I am so impressed! Will order it in print and study every word!

Very Informative for a beginner, which I am.

I have listened to he book 1 time, to get a feel of what it offers. I am only my 3rd day into researching selling on Amazon. I plan to read this book again to take notes and start my product researching. Greatly informative for someone like me with absolutely no knowledge of selling on Amazon.

Great little book!

Well researched, useful, and interesting. I've been selling online for a few years, but this book still had a lot of stuff I didn't know. The author exhausted all areas one needs to know when considering online entrepreneurship, and she put it together succinctly and completely, with an overview at the beginning, and a review of everything at the end. It was also very well narrated--it was like listening to a good friend explain everything you need to know! I really enjoyed the book, and have already started using the information. I clipped a lot of spots while listening b/c there is so much good information, good resources, and good websites all wrapped up in a very affordable price. Thank you Renae Clark--you did an awesome job.

Very informative

Downloaded this book for more information on topic. Great information other than spelling out the website links. Small flaw/goof, but overall definitely recommend to others if you’re looking for information on product sourcing.
