Private Label Products to Sell on Amazon FBA – Getting Started

Private Label Products to Sell

I don’t know if you’ve heard or not – but there is a LOT of money being made by people who private label products to sell on Amazon via the FBA platform. Yeah! I’ve heard that too. It’s been really hard to ignore over the past year or so if you hang out in the “make money online” spaces like I do. I read blogs and I listen to podcasts. Most of my focus over the last few years has been around blogging and building niche websites. But even most of the people that I follow in that space have either dived in, or at least talked about private labeling products and selling them on Amazon via FBA.

Throughout most of the past year, I have had to purposely ignore all of the talk and the hype around Amazon FBA. I had specific reasons that I didn’t want anything to do with that type of business. At least not at the time. So, what were those reasons and why did I change my mind? Why am I jumping into the business now?

[Dumb] Passive Income Report for July 2015

dumb passive income report july 2015

Welcome to my [Dumb] Passive Income Report! This blog is all about what I am doing to create several different passive income streams. This monthly income report details my results. I work very hard and dedicate many hours each week to working on my different online endeavors in an attempt to create passive income. So why do I consider it passive income then? Because I am not trading specified amounts of time for a predetermined amount of money like I do at my day job. Most of the income you will see in this report results from work I have done in the past.

Why am I sharing my income publicly? Hopefully to gain credibility with you (the readers) and to maintain a certain degree of accountability for myself. I could blog all day long about what I am doing to create passive income online, including some of my unique strategies. But why would anybody trust me and believe that what I am doing works if I don’t prove it by sharing my results? This is what I mean by gaining credibility and this is one of the main purposes for sharing my income. I also share my failures on the blog, which holds me accountable. Knowing that I will be publishing a monthly income report will keep me motivated to keep pushing forward and plugging away on the things I need to do to create future passive income.

How to Find Profitable Keywords for Amazon Affiliate Sites

Amazon Affiliate Sites
No – you can’t buy kids on Amazon!

Amazon affiliate sites seem to be all the rage lately. It seems like everybody is building them. The popularity of Amazon product-based niche sites seemed to make itself apparent when Spencer Haws published his first public niche site project on his popular blog – Niche Pursuits. Ever since he shared his success with that public project – I’ve been seeing Amazon affiliate niche websites everywhere! The popularity of Amazon sites was proven even more to me recently when I launched my own keyword research service. Just during the beta test period, 60% of my customers wanted me to find keywords for them to build Amazon sites around. As a result, I’ve been doing a LOT of keyword research around topics that relate to products that are being sold on Amazon. In case you didn’t know – Amazon sells almost literally everything imaginable! In other words, there are limitless products being sold every day on Amazon and even more keywords that can lead to those products. Amazon is willing to pay out healthy commissions to their affiliates – which makes creating Amazon affiliate sites more and more attractive. Once you see how easy it is to find low competition keywords that lead to profitable Amazon niches – you’ll likely want to jump on the bandwagon too!
