Tips to succeed as a new Amazon Seller

Here are a few tips to remember when starting your own Amazon business.


  1. Dealing with Stagnancy

It is inevitable to have your doubts and get stuck. Maybe your plans didn’t work out the way you wanted it to or you lack knowledge in an area and you just can’t continue. Whatever the reason may be you have to pick yourself up and move forward in order to attain your goals. The best way you can do this is to become an active member of the community. Look for vloggers, bloggers and articles that will help you understand what you need to do. Remember, there is always help when you need it. All it takes is to explore in the right direction.

  1. Limited Funds

If you are selling in your own country, you can start with as little as £60. Start your journey by buying items from the thrift store, and collecting unwanted items from your family and friends. Take a good look in your home first for potential items to sell. When you’ve already sold these items, reinvest any profit made so you can scale and grow your business, making it sustainable.

  1. Setting Goals

The beauty of goal setting is that not only does it help give you a sense of direction; it can also help keep you motivated. Practice setting small and achievable targets for each month, and with each target, keep a checklist of items To Do. This way, you have a clear set of actions to take to guide you through the day and towards success.

Moreover, it’s wise to invest time to watch webinars as well as YouTube videos. Try to do these at least 2 hours each day to develop and grow your knowledge.

Join an Amazon seller group. YouTube has a vast amount of tutorials and first-hand information you can use to boost your confidence and start selling.

Join different social media platforms as well like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, to name a few. Not only are there plenty of resources available here to assist a new seller, it is also an opportunity to find mentors to assist you to stand on your two feet and make your dreams a reality.

Lastly, you may want to find online lists. There are premade lists online made by virtual assistant teams so that you can save time looking for profitable items to resell. In addition to this, be sure to check out arbitrage tools such as Tactical Arbitrage, Camel Camel Camel, Keepa and more.


Ultimately, for someone new to Amazon selling, and you have the cash to spare and very little time to comb through different YouTube videos, you could look into investing in a training course. One which has been well reviewed is the Proven Amazon Course which is relatively affordable. You could also look for online support, mentoring or coaching opportunities. But you need to make sure you are going for one that has been well reviewed so you don’t fall into the hands of nefarious merchants.

There are also dedicated vloggers that constantly make tutorials on YouTube which will help you to understand and break the course into the sizeable bite that you can use for your own understanding.
