The Amazon marketplace is a very popular starting place for many people who want to enter the ecommerce realm. Selling on Amazon is still a very realistic way to begin making a living online but it’s not without its pitfalls. Wes Grudzien has not only become very successful selling products on the Amazon platform - he’s also built a business that consults with brands and individuals to help them get a start on Amazon as well.
Selling on Amazon can work in a number of ways. The two most popular are through retail arbitrage (buying wholesale or at a discount and reselling at retail or above on Amazon) or through what is known as private label sales. Private label sales is the process of sourcing products through a supplier, branding them as your own, and selling on Amazon. Wes Grudzien has done both and is a pro at helping others learn how to create their own online revenue using those models.
Wes attributes his company’s success at selling on Amazon to their commitment to follow typical business practices. It may sound simplistic but many who sell on Amazon don’t do adequate product research, don’t work to optimize their processes or listings, and miss many of the little things that can make for a successful sales channel.
