WHAT EXACTLY IS AMAZON PRIVATE LABEL SELLING? WHAT IS THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENT TO LAUNCH YOUR OWN BRAND ON AMAZON?
From time to time you get a bit of feedback that makes it all worthwhile. I got a question the other day and - as usual - I answered it as best I can. The message I got back was extremely gratifying and I hope that Gerry who asked it doesn't mind me using it as a reference point for this post - because the thing he wanted to know is a question overlooked by many FBA training courses and services. It's a simple question and there is a clear answer - but it is so fundamental to the whole enterprise of embarking as an Amazon seller that it really deserves a bit more coverage.
Health warning: This video contains a few acronyms and Amazon terms - if you want to know more about these you can just ask me...and maybe you will be in my next blog post!

Amazon will bring you some traffic, but not much initially. There are several things you can and should do to get access tomore of it but the VERY FIRST is to start with the end in mind. An Amazon Product Page with an Offer that Converts!
One of the most popular questions I get from people as they are deciding to sign up is what steps are actually essential versus "nice to have" in the process of becoming an Amazon seller. There is a basic decision tree that governs this and it's a useful one because it helps define your goals and objectives as well as the investment you are willing to make.
Watch the video and if you have questions - post them below and I will answer them.
Finding a supplier is easy to start but very difficult to execute well first time. One of the key problems is finding one that is small enough and eager enough to engage with you when you are just starting out but big enough to expand with you and scale up when you start making high volume sales. Switching suppliers is very difficult halfway so it's quite important to minimise the opportunities for getting it wrong at the very start before you are financially committed!
