So one computer and internet connection can not be used for accessing multiple amazon seller accounts. Simply because Amazon forbids you to have multiple seller accounts. So accessing multiple accounts from same computer and internet connection can be a strong sign that you have multiple accounts and it can get your account in trouble.

Choosing a niche to enter is one of the most crucial decisions you'll make in your Amazon brand launching journey. Simply because in order to make most out of a brand you will probably add new products down the line in the same niche to leverage the audience you have built. Off course if your first product was a success.

Competition is becoming tougher and tougher, and that is way you can not solely rely on product listing optimization. You will have to employ multiple marketing weapons, which include content marketing, social media marketing, video marketing etc.

And in order to know exactly what is the best angle of providing value to your potential customers you will need to pick a niche in which you are truly good at, that you understand, in which you are willing to learn and follow the latest trends.

If you sell the exact same product like your top competitor you will have much harder time competing and outranking them. You need to give a great reason why customers should purchase your product instead of an already established one from top competitors.

Selling identical products like everyone else will probably put you out of business in a year or two. Unless you have entered the market at early growth stage or if you have an established audience outside Amazon.

You NEED to differentiate as much as you can!

This exercise will help you find what customers desperately want in your product. And then use those features as main benefit and value proposition of your product.

Still on the fence? Don't know which product to launch on Amazon?

This FRESH & UPDATED list of hot products to sell on amazon can help you uncover some of the most lucrative and high demand niches.

---> The list has been updated on September 2016

HURRY! The earlier you join the more opportunities you will receive, because the list is updated monthly, and previous lists are being replaced with new ones!

2 pages

Use this list if you are not sure if private labeling is the right business model for you or you simply want to balance the risk and try how the whole process of private labeling works with least amount of money.


This list contains products that can be sourced for 200$. I have also included links to suppliers.


NOTE: The purpose of this list is only to show that you don’t need thousands of dollars in order to source your own private label product. However, it should NOT distract you from products you found during niche and product research. Some of these products are great opportunities and some aren’t. Make sure you do the product competition and demand analysis before sourcing one of these products.


This is just the tip of the iceberg...there are much more products that can be sourced with less than 200$. But please consider that I have not included additional costs such as shipping, inspection services, customs fees and taxes, legal protection, product launch and initial advertising costs.


Please, if you are on a really tight budget then consider other Amazon selling strategies. Private labeling is not only about sourcing products, it's about building a brand through external marketing efforts, which requires additional investments.
