Read more below to learn our life-saving tips and crucial information for starting your FBA business in 2023.
Trust us, Amazon FBA is as great as people say. But you still need to put in the effort.
Amazon is a well known and trusted company, with millions of customers who use their services. So what does this mean for you? With the trust of millions of happy customers as an Amazon FBA seller you will have the potential to generate insane sales.
It is important to recognise that Amazon FBA is a business, and like any business the success you experience is based on the time and dedication you put into it. In our previous blog we explain how you can avoid mistakes which damage Amazon FBA businesses.
Considering the huge number of customers Amazon have Amazon FBA is incredibly scalable. With the right mindset and a clear plan you can reach your goals and grow your business to new heights.
Understanding how Amazon FBA works in 2023.
Amazon FBA is an incredible business model and is continuing to grow. This proves just how profitable Amazon FBA can be. However the other side of the coin is that with more sellers growing their businesses, you will have more competitors to win the Buybox. We explain more about the buybox here.
With an increased number of entrepreneurs becoming Amazon FBA sellers it can become more challenging to find items with a decent ROI (return on investment). This is due to inexperienced sellers undercutting an items price to win the Buybox. This leads to a race to the bottom as the Buybox price drops causing a potential lose-lose situation for sellers.
However you do not need to lose out because of this. Inexperienced or smaller sellers are likely to have less stock. Therefore, if you wait for the seller who has undercut to sell out the item’s price will rise again. By waiting you can then make sure that you sell your item for a higher price and make a decent ROI. We suggest when analysing items to look for products with at least a 30% ROI to enable you to generate profit.
Rather than undercutting we suggest matching the BuyBox price. This way you can generate sales by sharing the Buybox with another seller.
Get ungated, you’ll thank yourself in the future.
We have spoken about ungating in the past which you can find here.
More and more brands and categories are becoming restricted. But how does this affect you? To be able to sell an item that you are gated in it is necessary to apply to Amazon to sell the brand or category. Now, I know what you are thinking, and yes it does involve you putting in some extra effort to apply to sell an item.
But getting ungated is also advantageous for you. Especially when we think about the competitive nature of Amazon FBA we mentioned in the last section. As gated brands/categories require you to apply to sell them this naturally means there is less competition when it comes to selling these items. You can therefore take advantage of this by getting ungated and selling items which other sellers are likely to be gated in.
Set aside time to analysing and finding new products.
Putting in the time to source and find profitable products are the building blocks of your Amazon FBA business. The more time you can dedicate to finding winning products the stronger your business will be.
With increased competition in 2023 compared to previous years sourcing products can take time when you are starting out. This is where an understanding of Amazon FBA and a positive mindset is essential.
Sourcing products will take time when you are new to FBA. Like any skill you want to develop, the more time you can spend sourcing products the more familiar you will be when it comes to finding great products.
