Anthony Lee, COO of SixLeaf, LLC

“I would say that one of the most difficult and challenging [categories], especially for a new seller, would probably be somewhere in the men’s wellness space. Fitness supplements is an extremely competitive niche unless you have a lot of money.”

Gregory Elfrink, Director of Marketing for Empire Flippers

“Anything digestible because there are a lot of regulations that go into it, so nutraceuticals and stuff like that. One other thing I would suggest is to move away from “Me Too” products that are easy to build–look to build something unique.”

Marco Tassiano, Founder & CEO of www.AmzSEO.it

“Items that are not solving any problem or giving any solutions. So the fidget spinner, for example, is a nice item, but after 15 days, everyone forgets about it. So it’s better to keep selling something that may be boring, but people need 365 days a year.”
