I've dabbled with Amazon in the past doing a little bit of retail arbitrage and FBA stuff. It's one of the biggest markets in the world and I don't know why it's taken me so long to take a proper look at it. I toyed with it a little a month ago. $140 in profit over the last 6 weeks but I haven't done a whole lot with it. When you first upload an item it gets a boost from Amazon in terms of popularity. Giving new items a chance to convert and rank better I assume. After that, the rankings dropped off the map and my sales started to decline. I've tried a mix of mass producing products and taking the time to create quality ones. Either method can clearly work but I think I'm doing enough mass automation stuff. I'd like to take this as a chance to make some actual quality content. It doesn't hurt that the girl I'm seeing at the moment is a graphics designer so it might even look good. Rather than just posting items and waiting to see what happens this time I'm going to be running some promotion to them. The goal is to profit from Amazon's own marketplace of buyer traffic - but in order to rank and starting picking up these sales, I'm going to give them a bit of help to begin with. The Promotion Running Amazon's internal paid ads, Some AdWords and some social media bot traffic to them. I'm prepared to lose some money on the paid ads to begin with if it leads to better ranking and more organic sales later on. The Journal I have a bunch of other projects on at the moment so this is very much a side hustle. The overall goal is 10 items minimum before I decide how viable it is and I want to do no less than 1 a week. If I can find the time, I'll finish them sooner. I'll share stats as I go. There's a trickle from stuff I've already uploaded but it's not really worth talking about so the focus will be on the ones I'm actively promoting. So Far I'm going to start with some of the ones I've already uploaded. There are 2... maybe three which I actually like. I'll change the sales copy a bit and start running traffic to them.
