Course Description

This is a course about joining Amazon's Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) program and learning how to sell on Amazon. The FBA program is great for those who are interested in selling on Amazon but don't want to worry about packaging and shipping to their buyers. You send your products to the Amazon warehouse and they will take care of the rest.

There are a lot of expensive courses out there that charge hundreds of dollars to teach you how to sell on Amazon. My goal is to create a course that is more affordable for those who are interested in selling on Amazon without making such a huge investment. Whether you would like to make a little extra money from things in your home you don't need any more or would like to make supplemental income on the side, this course will get you up and running in one (1) day.

There is no fluff or up selling involved - in fact I move quickly through my tutorials. I know I hate when I'm watching a tutorial and it takes 2-3 minutes to get through an obnoxiously wasteful intro to get to the reason why I'm watching a video. I hope you will appreciate that too!

This course is divided into two sections. The first section I will walk you through setting up your account, adjusting your settings and talking about how important aspects of the program. The second section I will walk you through adding products to your inventory, preparing your shipments for Amazon, pricing strategies, and where you can find products to sell.

All students will be able to contact me with questions and feedback so I can make sure your getting the most out of this course.

What are the requirements?

  • You will need boxes, packaging tape, a printer, and computer.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • By the end of this course you will be able to sell on Amazon using the Fulfilled By Amazon (FBA) program.
  • You will learn how to list your products and create shipments for the Amazon fulfillment center.
  • We'll also review 4 basic pricing strategies so you can compete with the different type of Amazon Sellers.

What is the target audience?

  • This course is for beginners! People who need extra money for bills or college savings. This course could also be good for people transitioning jobs or are currently looking for work.
  • Also if you're moving or doing some spring cleaning and you were thinking of throwing stuff away, it might be worth seeing if you can sell it on Amazon (especially electronics).
