I received a wonderfully sweet note from a lady who very much wants to learn to sell on Amazon, but who really needs to spend her start-up funds carefully. After reading what she had to say, it occurred to me that I should really put together a list of free resources for Amazon sellers.
Before we get into the free resources available to you to learn to sell on Amazon, I should mention Jessica Larrew’s course, “Amazon Boot Camp.” If you can swing the $299, it’ll be well worth it. It’s the only step by step video training course to learn how to sell on Amazon. At the very least, you can grab the first lesson free to learn how to set up your Amazon selling account.
Free Amazon scanner app
Usually the first thing new Amazon sellers want to do is get a scanning app. That makes sense as a large part of the business is comparison shopping.
Buy low, sell high!
The sweet lady who wrote me wanted to know which scanning app she should use. To my knowledge, there are only 3 apps for Amazon sellers right now.
I suggest you do some Google searching to find out about these apps, who created them, what they do, what they don’t do, and what real users have to say about them.
I personally use the free Amazon seller app. Some people say it’s great, and others say it’s awful. JD and I have found that we really like it. We had a paid app before we moved to this one, so it’s not about the money. It’s just our preference.
If you’re new to selling on Amazon and somewhat cash-strapped, I don’t think you can go wrong by using Amazon’s app.
