What Are The Best Products To Start Selling On Amazon – with Andrew Milburn


DSC00072aaaaOne of the popular questions I get as a Coach and Consultant in the world on e commerce is “What are the best items to start with on Amazon?” Now I know there are millions of products out there and still millions more being introduced to the market place on a regular pattern. But I am going to be open and honest with you some will hate this other will love it …………………… Books, yes that simple hubble pile of paper is what is best to start with.

Now before you think I have gone mad and what about this product or that product or have I not heard that so and so is selling like hot cakes, I have, but to most sellers new or semi new a lot of these cool products are out of their range, either on price, quantity they need to buy, or getting approval.

But when you boil it all down and crunch everything together Books really are the best items to start with on Amazon, they are easy to source and low cost to buy.

Books to stay away from……..

  • Fiction
  • Book Club
  • Most Paper Back books
  • Readers Digest Type books


The best books to source are ……..

  • Non fiction
  • Theology Books
  • Law Books
  • Cookery Books
  • Text Books
  • University Books
  • College Books

Where to source these books ……

  • Car Boot Sales
  • Estate Sales
  • Charity Shops
  • Thrift Stores
  • Family
  • Friends
  • Neighbours
  • Theology Colleges
  • Universities
  • Colleges
  • Adverts in Craigslist
  • Flyers
  • Cards on Notice Boards
  • Word of Mouth
  • And the list goes on and on

Over the coming weeks and months we will in depth of how and where to source, but for now spread your net far and wide and look for books everywhere

When you source remember buy as low as possible when making offers make low offers you can always come up on price if need be but you can never come down.

Never commit over phone or email to a price you are prepared to make as you do not know the condition of the book until you sell it.

Lastly always meet in a public place and tell someone where you are going and try to go with someone. Stay safe

Hope this short article has helped you think when you are wondering what are the best items to start with on Amazon.
