Are you an Amazon FBA seller or Amazon affiliate who needs more traffic and sales?  Learn from an instructor with 20 years experience in online marketing and 3+ years experience on Amazon.

Give your listings and links a sales and ranking boost by generating targeted traffic from some of the best traffic sources on the Internet.

Selling tangible products as either a seller or an affiliate can be highly rewarding financially and you can operate everything from wherever you happen to be. At home, travelling, even sitting on the beach if you feel like it!

There's something special about leveraging Amazon to earn profits and commissions. Why? Because they have spent decades building up trust and reputation. Conversion rates are much higher than the average.  This means when a person visits your product listing page, or clicks through from a link, you have a good chance of getting a sale.

However, with so much competition it can be tough to gain traction and start the ball rolling.  As a seller, you might have some newly listed products that seem to be taking forever to start getting sales. As an affiliate you might be struggling to earn any decent commissions. 

It's a common problem and can cause many FBA sellers or affiliates to give up. 

So what's the solution?  

Take control by marketing your Amazon FBA listings and Amazon affiliate links via multiple highly effective sources.  Most of these sources are completely free. The only source that does require some advertising spend, is very low cost.  In any case, you will learn an alternative free way to make use of it!

Entrepreneur, Expert Amazon Seller, Online Marketer & Coach

My name's Theo McArthur and I've been working online since since 1995. I left my job and went full-time online in 2001. Teaching here on Udemy is probably the most satisfying thing I do. Being able to help others to learn life changing techniques and business models.

Over the last 15 years or so I've created and marketed many digital e-learning products and have also worked extensively in the field of affiliate marketing. I've built a number of 'authority' blogs to promote affiliate products and additionally worked on many other methods of marketing and profiting with affiliate offers. I started list building in 2006 and this has formed a central part of my online career.

In the spring of 2013 I started selling on Amazon. Previous to that I had never sold any physical products online. Today I also run three ecommerce websites.

I'm still an affiliate marketer and also a vendor of my own information products. However, I always wanted to sell physical products too, and Amazon was the obvious place to get started.

Starting on Amazon without the guidance of an experienced seller can be tough and the courses I took myself were not complete and were missing certain vital parts of the 'puzzle'. I learned more through trial and error than anything else, and that's what prompted me to create a step-by-step blueprint to success on Amazon.

In 2014 I also set up my first ecommerce store and since then, I've added two more.

Sometimes I get asked how I manage to get so much done. It's simply a case of organisation and prioritising (is that a word? Anyway, I'm sure you know what I mean!)

I fully understand that everybody's different and a business model or income method that suits one person, may not suit another. Therefore here on Udemy, I try to offer a variety of courses to cater for all levels of experience and all aspirations.
