Profit with Amazon – Advanced FBA Tips For Booksellers

FBA, or fulfillment by Amazon, is a great way to make money online. All you have to do is find books to sell, send them to Amazon, and they do the rest.

They store, pick, package and ship while you rake in the cash.

A few years ago this was a hot secret that nobody knew about.

Now, it's starting to blow up big-time and that means there's much more competition out there.

You've got to get creative and think outside of the box a little if you want to really make money with FBA.

Here are some advanced tips culled from the experts.

Get Started Giving Books Away

Lots of folks who want to dive right into FBA and start making tons of money miss a really important point – feedback is everything.

People will choose another seller with higher prices over you as long as they've got good feedback.

What this means for you is that when you first get started, you've got to undercut the competition as much as possible.

Don't worry too much about scoring big until you've got the feedback to steal sales away from other sellers.

Hunting Offline

The cheapest way to find books to sell is to get out there and hunt for them. Garage sales, flea markets, and thrift stores work alright, but the best are library book sales.

Libraries sell perfectly good books for ridiculously cheap because they just don't have the shelf-space for them.

For scoring at library book sales, here are three things that are highly recommended:

* Find out early and go on preview night.

* Always hit the last day of the sale when they're selling bags of books for as cheap as a dollar or two.

* Try to find out about library book sales in your area that aren't advertised widely so you won't have to beat out other book hunters.

Invest in a Book Scanner

If you're going to get seriously into FBA, you've got to invest in a book scanner.

This is a small, handheld device that looks up books for you on Amazon when you scan them.

These are a bit expensive but well worth the price if you're going to become a big seller.

If you have a smartphone, you can look them up directly on Amazon but it's not as convenient as using a scanner.

Buy Low on EBay

The only tough thing about FBA is actually finding books to sell. You may end up traveling all over the place to scour garage sales, library book sales and flea markets.

One great way to buy cheap while still staying at home is to buy books on eBay.

Start by finding books that are selling really big on Amazon. Then, search for those same titles on eBay.

The cool thing is that you can decide on your profit first, subtract your markup, and set that as your maximum bid. No risk involved.

Lots of people get addicted to fulfillment by Amazon.

They start off selling the old books they've got lying around, fall for how easy it is, and then decide to start doing it for real.

Just remember that there are lots of folks probably in your area that have already found this goldmine of opportunity. Stay ahead of them, and you can make great money with FBA.

You've got to get creative and think outside of the box a little if you want to really make money with FBA.
