I’m on holiday this month and next, however I still somehow managed to increase my earnings by a grand on last month. Maybe I should take more holidays! Seriously though, this Amazon stuff is AMAZING! I mean, I used to think affiliate marketing was a good gig (before Google Penguin), but selling on Amazon is waaaaay better. The hours required to run this business are even less than affiliate marketing, and I’m even talking if you have a VA team too. It’s literally only 30 mins or less a day to maintain this business. It’s takes more time if you’re adding new products, but once you get them going, it’s nothing.

Anyway, my seller feedbacks are still increasing steadily and still on 100% positive. My products feedbacks are increasing too. I think this may be why sales are increasing. I’m going to keep mining the Amazon reviewers list for more reviews since it seems to be paying off.

I’m looking forward to getting some new products going. However, I’ve still got another month holiday in Cyprus (first world problems eh…).

    hey Petter..

    Managed to reach your blog through the link you had mentioned on the PAC forum. Could you please clarify on the use of the following 2 tools?
    1. Shipito – While i could see a lot of sense in using ETO, i did not understand the exact value add could do to our business. Whenever you find time, could you explain this point?
    2. Amazon reviewers – How do we approach these reviewers? what do we write to them when we need them to write reviews for us and what would they expect from us?

    Do let me know whenever you find time
    thanks in advance

      Sure. I use shipito as a reciever in the US because I ship from China. I do it mainly to avoid any complications from shipping directly to Amazon from China. The UPS rates stateside are very reasonable.

      As for the Amazon reviewers, they are very used to being approached and get hundreds of emails. My advice is to be direct and include the links to the products you’d like them to review.

        hi petter.. i know you have answered this question multiple times before. but how do you really select the products? i mean, against every product the prices i am getting from suppliers leaves me with only USD 1 or 2 as margins and i have heard people telling that they are selling as 100% margins.. can you throw some light here please and thanks for your time

        • nevillepettersson

          There’s no easy way to select products my friend. If it was easy everybody would be doing it. You have to try and find the products which have these criteria:

          1. Can sell a lot of units.
          2. You can find a source giving you a good margin.
          3. Has low FBA competition on amazon.

          This really is the crux of this biz. You always have be on the lookout and talking to people about it. Ask them what products they find useful. Snoop around your own house too or think about what products you’d like to make your own life easier.

          Hope that helps 🙂
