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!

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YouTube and Google for the necessary information a first time amazon seller needs to get started but everything seemed outdated and inconsistent.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.

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.

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.

Informative Book, Easy to Listen to

As someone researching how to start an E-Commerce business on Amazon I found this book very useful. The author provided a wealth of information in this concise book and the narrator was pleasant. The references to specific product validation tools and supplier directory sites for sourcing are very helpful. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn more about selecting a product for resell, validating the product to make sure it's a good investment, and ideas for finding a supplier. Worth the purchase!
