Amazon Gold Rush: How I Sold $317,255.74 Last Year Part Time teaches you all about selling on Amazon... an opportunity that I believe is the easiest way to start and build a successful part time or full time online business today and rapidly build a full time income.

Why Amazon?

Amazon is the biggest online retailer in the world.

Last year, I sold $317,255.74 on Amazon and I did this working part time – 20 to 30 hours a week.

Amazon wants you to share in their growth and success. Just look at these sales figures for 3rd party merchants on Amazon:

  • In Q2 2015, 3rd party merchants sold 45% of all products on Amazon.
  • The gross sales of 3rd party merchants totaled $27.9 Billion dollars – a whopping 58% of total sales for that quarter.
  • Amazon has 285 Million active customers – meaning that they made purchases in the past year
  • Year over year sales grow dramatically – growing over 18% a year.

And most importantly, Amazon makes it easy for you to participate in their spectacular growth with several exciting seller partner programs including their Marketplace and Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) programs that let you offer just about any product ever made on their platform... all to help you become a success and grow your business.

This course takes you step by step through the knowledge you need to start building your Amazon empire.

It will teach you:

  • Why the Amazon opportunity is so great
  • The mechanics of starting your business and working with Amazon
  • The two most important business models for you to adopt when building your Amazon empire
  • How to understand the Amazon product catalog and how to turn that knowledge into even greater profits for your business
  • How to find, manage and maximize the profits from your inventory purchases

  • How to use a variety of cash multipliers to supercharge your profits
  • Amazon feedback and performance metrics and what they mean to you as a seller.
  • And much more.

My name is Steven Chabotte. I started my full time entrepreneurial life back in 1997 – setting up my first eBay account, an ecommerce website and a mail order catalog. In 2005, I jumped on the Amazon opportunity. And I've never looked back.

Over the years, I sold just about everything you can imagine from coins to nutritional supplements to clothing to survival and camping supplies and sports equipment, grocery items, books, dvds, cd, jewelry. I even sold a Mercedes 500SL on eBay back in 2006. Basically if I could figure out a way to make a profit on a product and ship it safely, I sold it.

Selling on Amazon is one of the easiest business opportunities available to you today! All it takes is a proper success oriented education and a desire to succeed. I can provide the first part. It is up to you to provide the 2nd part.

And the course comes with Udemy's no questions asked 30 day guarantee so there is nothing to lose and so much to gain.

Entrepreneur and Professional Programmer

Steven Chabotte is an entrepreneur and programmer. He wrote his first computer program in 1979 in a very primitive version of basic on a teletype machine and was immediately hooked by the creative world ad magical world that was offered by writing lines of code to run on a computer.

He then went on to write a teaching system for special needs students at his high school before going off to college to study Astronomy - and the fascinating language of Fortran which opened the world of statistical analysis of Astronomy - an interest that persist to this day but with Python as the main programming language.

Since that time, Steven has tackled many complex projects - from nuclear power plant control systems to real time operating system development and process control systems to complex web applications in a wide variety of high level and machine languages.

He has also run several programming development companies focused on web development tools such as search engine development and email marketing tools as well as web enabled mail order companies.

Steven currently runs two thriving online ecommerce businesses. One is a publish on demand business based on public domain works and one is a more traditional web based mail order business focusing on eBay (since 1997) and Amazon (since 2005) as the marketing platforms.
