Some of the best advice for selling on Amazon includes… 

Cynthia Stine, CEO of EGrowth Partners

“Start either wholesale or private label. I used to tell people to do arbitrage, but that is not a good model anymore. It’s very difficult to be successful. So for someone just starting, I would tell them to look at either developing their own products or to start wholesale.”

Tom Wang, Owner of DIGITAL MUVMNT

“The second tip that I’d give to a friend is focusing a lot of time on the upfront work. So what I mean by that is probably product research. I think that’s the #1 reason why people fail on Amazon is that they chose the wrong product. At the end of the day, even if you give certain products to an 8-figure seller who’s been selling on Amazon for three or four years, a lot of them will still have trouble selling that product.”

Nick Katz, The Japan Guy

“If you want to do for example private label, which is what a lot of people are doing–a lot of people say you should kind of just start with a product. I don’t really agree with that. If you want to just start with a product, you should do arbitrage. I think if you want to start doing private label specifically, you shouldn’t rush into it. You should make a product that you are proud of and a product you like.”
