I am new with amazon online seller. i just created my account in january and up till now i am yet to list any product. I attended a training where I thought the organizer will assist us with list of hot selling products to list but there was none.
I have been researching on hot selling good but it seems i haven’t really come across any as such. I don’t want to buy just any product to list that will not attract sales.
Please is there any way i can have access to what you think are hot selling categories of goods just to take off .
Thank you.February 2, 2018 at 1:53 pm #157811
The “hot categories” aren’t the best focus, believe it or not. Electronics, apparel, sporting goods, home decor, fashion accessories, are all “hot” but there are tens of thousands of competing products in each. The key is researching deep into sub-categories (like fashion accessories > scarves > pashminas) to find hot-selling products with little competition that you can break into with relatively low procurement (buying or making the goods to sell) costs.
That’s the golden apple that Amazon sellers need to focus on. That research takes time but the selling opportunities are out there. If you want to just dip your toe into Amazon, try retail arbitrage first with the free Amazon seller app for product research. It’s a low-cost way to see how everything works before you try to buy bulk products.
