Let’s admit it – Amazon.com is a force when it comes to selling products online and Amazon.com is not going away anytime soon. Many businesses, especially booksellers feel threatened by Amazon and over the years many business owners blamed Amazon.com for the failure of their businesses. I am sure Amazon.com has affected many business models, but that is simply the way the Internet works. In my opinion you can continue to blame Amazon and continue doing what you are doing or you can adjust your own business model and thrive.
Reboot your business online
Unless you already have a successful online business where you sell your products, you might want to take a closer look at Amazon.com from a business perspective. Amazon offers a fulfillment service that is extremely unique. And while this fulfillment service is not cheap to use, thousands of businesses are using it to increase their online sales. This business model works because of the brand recognition that Amazon.com has built up over the last 20+ years. Consumers trust Amazon and they love prices, customer service, speed of delivery, and the generous return policies that Amazon offers. Small businesses have jumped on board and are utilizing the brand power and traffic volume that Amazon offers to increase their online sales.
Fulfillment by Amazon or FBA is an opportunity that you should consider taking. Imagine just sending your products into an Amazon warehouse and not having to do anything else. Amazon’s website will sell your product. Amazon’s warehouse will pack your products and ship them to customers. Amazon will handle any customer service inquiries and Amazon will also handle the main parts of customer returns. All you have to do is to make sure to have enough products at an Amazon warehouse to keep sales coming in.
Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA)
Selling on Amazon through FBA is not overly complicated, but it is not easy either. While opening a seller account is fairly easy, getting approved to sell in restricted categories like Health, Beauty, or Groceries is a whole different story. In addition, you cannot simply list your products and expect sales to take off like crazy. Careful consideration which of your products will be good selling opportunities on Amazon and to price them correctly requires some work. Listing your own, unique products on Amazon.com takes things to a whole new level. As an example, you can easily piggyback on existing product listings of other sellers if you have a 1:1 match for the same product (example: you want to sell a 24 bag Tazo Tea pack that is already listed on Amazon and you would simply list your offer against that product listing). Creating your own listing for your own unique products or variations of products (example: you want to sell a Tazo Tea Variety pack) involves many more steps + you need to optimize the new listing and eventually advertise it to kick sales up into high gear.
