How to Make Money from Home with Amazon



Have you ever wanted to know how to make money from home? Maybe you have friends who have made big money selling on Amazon and you wonder how they made it happen. Well, you’re not alone. The last U.S. Census reported that 5.2% of U.S. workers work remotely — some 8 million people. And with increased connectedness thanks to advances in technology (as well as big changes happening in the world requiring people to self-isolate at home due to coronavirus), it’s likely many more will soon join the online workforce.

What’s the best way to make money from home? Selling on Amazon. (See more options below, but we’re starting with the best, right?) Yes, we’re biased as a company that provides technology and resources to help people sell on Amazon, but we got into this business for three good reasons. First, selling on Amazon is the most flexible platforms on which to earn an income as it lends itself well to multiple business models such as: Private label selling Private label is when a retailer rebrands and/or renames a product that is already being manufactured under another brand or label. Brands such as Walmart’s Great Value or Target’s Main Stays are both examples of private label products. 71% of sellers say they use this method to sell on Amazon. Dropshipping Dropshipping is an e-commerce supply chain operation method that allows a seller to take orders on behalf of a manufacturer, distributor, or supplier. And sellers don’t keep their own product inventory. Instead, when a customer buys the item, the seller then sends the order information to their supplier/manufacturer and they fulfill the sale. Handmade goods Handmade sellers are people who create their own products to sell on the Amazon marketplace. Examples include jewelry, accessories, home decor, and more. Retail and online arbitrage Arbitrage is a method of finding low-cost or discounted products available on one marketplace to resell on another. With retail arbitrage, those discounted items are found in brick and mortar stores, while online arbitrage means you’re finding those low-cost products on a website or another online store. Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) If you’re a writer, then KDP may be perfect for you. It allows you to publish your own books on Amazon. You can also spend as much or as little time you want on your Amazon business. In fact, the majority of Amazon sellers spend fewer than 40 hours each week on their business, and 79% sell on Amazon part-time. Second, it’s one of the fastest platforms on which sellers can turn a profit. In Jungle Scout’s survey of more than 1,000 Amazon sellers, we learned that 67% of all sellers (new and experienced) earned a profit in less than a year. In fact, even 63% of new Amazon sellers reported seeing a profit within their first year. Furthermore, 16% of those beginner sellers turned a profit in fewer than three months. Third, it’s the biggest marketplace with the most customers. Compared to the next largest online retail platform, eBay, Amazon has almost three times the monthly shopper traffic (SimilarWeb.com). That’s despite the fact that eBay has close to 10x the number of sellers that Amazon has — 25 million to 2.5 million respectively.
