Whether you’re selling books, software, or anything in between, the Amazon Automation is a goldmine for ecommerce entrepreneurs. With its massive userbase and powerful analytics tools, Amazon presents a perfect opportunity for you to make more money through Amazon Automation sales.
In this article, I’ll walk you through how to set up automated sales on the platform.
How to automate the sale of your products on Amazon
Amazon is one of the biggest e-commerce platforms in the world and also a great place to sell your products. If you have a physical product you can choose to sell on Amazon, as Amazon provides you with a platform that is easy to use and allows you to reach a global audience.
There is no definition of what exactly an ecommerce website should offer, but Amazon has provided a set of specific rules that you have to follow if you want to sell on Amazon.
These rules stipulate what makes an online product on Amazon a seller-supported product. You can choose to sell all your products on Amazon, or you can choose to sell them in a sellers offer.
An example of a seller-supported product is a product that is sold at an increased discount as opposed to the average marked-down price on Amazon. It’s also the case that Amazon has a buy box whereby you don’t have to make any additional payment to get your product on Amazon’s platform.
Setting up a Selling Amazon.co.uk
Currently, there are 13.8 million products on Amazon.com, which means there’s over 1,000 products per second for sale. It’s therefore not practical to set up website “sales” for every product that you sell on Amazon. This means that you’ll have to choose which products you want to be able to sell on Amazon. You can choose categories to focus on, make suggestions to Amazon about how to improve your product, and target the right keywords to sell those products.
It’s worth taking a look at Amazon’s Seller FAQ before setting up a Selling Amazon.co.uk website. This is a helpful page which provides advice about international selling, taxation, and regulations. Also, be sure to select the Help & Support tab under “Setting up a Selling Amazon.co.uk page.” Choose this option to read how-to-help articles which will help you set things up safely and ensure that everything is working correctly.
How to use Amazon automation tools to save time and make more money
There are a lot of tools you can use for Amazon Automation business, from simple spreadsheets that track your sales and inventory, to more advanced cloud-based software that you access from any computer, tablet or phone. Once you start using these tools, you’ll be able to make better decisions, save time, and make more money.
Amazon’s marketplace is important because it is the only online place that hosts many of the products and services your customers find (just look at the top products you can buy on Amazon). In late 2018, Amazon started selling nearly every kind of product imaginable via its Marketplace. You can sell books, clothes, food, home improvement products, electronics, toys, music… pretty much anything you can think of.
Many creators on the platform choose to wait until they become profitable on Amazon’s Marketplace to monetize via Amazon Automation. That’s completely valid, but it also means you’ll need to familiarize yourself with the Amazon Marketplace rules first.
A good way to get up to speed is by applying for a Seller Central account. Once you have a Sudeak account, you can access advanced analytics and report on your early sales.
Seller Central is free and needed for all new sellers on the platform. At the time of writing this article, it’s easier to get started on Seller Central than it is to monetize your own store, but there are still some things you need to know.
I’m one of the creators who uses Seller Central. I have used it for setting up a page with digital products for books, and it’s taken me a few tries to get everything set up.
However, setting up your own store is no easy task. Your inventory needs to be stored, you need to create an Amazon Store through Seller Central, and you need to learn how to optimize your store’s page. While this article only covers the essentials, it’s a good place to start.
If you keep things simple with the products you sell, you should be able to sell your products pretty easily via the website.
What is a digital product?
A digital product is a product that you can download and use on your computer or mobile device. This category includes ebooks, online courses and other digital content.
One of the main reasons people buy full-price ebooks on Kindle is the cost of ebooks. If you know your product is valuable and users will pay a significant amount for it, why not sell it for a small markup?
If ecommerce is something you’re thinking of entering, you could do worse than setting up your Amazon marketplace. Yet, keeping this simple guide to mind will help you earn more from online sales on Amazon and make more sales.
As an Amazon seller, there are a number of things you need to know:
- I’ll start with the basics. Amazon provides a simple interface for selling products. This includes selling custom or branded SKU’s to buyers, a marketplace, creating listings, and registering ads.
- Managing your account requires a seller account. You’ll need a seller ID and an Amazon seller profile — they’re both separate pieces of information.
- Read on for all the details (and I actually covered this in-depth in my other article on social media marketing).
- Before setting up your account, you need to create an Amazon seller account. That’s what this article is all about.
- The account creation process will ask you a few questions, including what products you sell and your demographic information. It will also ask for your country of residence and whether you have a feedback rating. This helps the marketplace know if you’re a repeat buyer.
- Next, you’ll need to create a seller ID. This is a secret key or password that grants privileges to your seller account. This licenses you to view information about your purchases and sales on your account.
Once you’ve created an AWS account, you’ll quickly transition to an Amazon seller account and here the Amazon Automation process starts.
1) Define your goals:
Before you start your blog, you should make sure you have a good reason for starting it.
- Are you trying to make money?
- Are you trying to build an audience for a future project?
- What is your overarching goal?
- Define your goal and make sure it aligns with why you’re starting your blog.
2) Record your KPIs:
Before you start your blog, you should be recording all of the KPIs. If you don’t know what these are, it sounds pretty simple: how much revenue did your listing generate? How much bounce rate does that excursion generate?
Don’t feel too embarrassed to Google these things — they’re easy to find. Want to know how many visitors bounced from your ad? Track it in Google Analytics. Want to know how many people clicked on an ad during a certain time frame? Look at The Landing Page Analysis Google provides. Whatever the calculation, it’s better to know exactly what each measurement tells you so you can report on it later.
3) Research data sources:
By using all of these KPIs, you’re going to be able to easily track your micro-moments. Record what your traffic sources are, what the conversion rates were, and what the average conversion rate is for each main conversion your blog features. You should also have all of the data you need to run quality raters on your content and optimize your third-party links.
4) Set up goal tracking:
When you establish goals in Google Analytics, you should link these to your tracking code on the website so they will sync up on your database. This is key, because you want these numbers to be completely accurate no matter what happens. Don’t leave anything to chance — build in tracking.
