    Hi Guys,

    I am selling my own products on amazon, bought them on Alibaba and I am the only one who sells the item here in Germany. It is in the fitness niche, and a really solid product, average product price is 30? /40$.

    Can you give me some hints how to get up in the search results? Ihave Fullfilment by Amzn, so that you can order it via prime, good product images from a photographer and ( I think so ) a good description which makes the reader want to use it immediately.

    I got 5 reviews ( all with 5 Stars) from friends of mine who also use the product, but the reviews are not "verified-buys" from amazon, I sold them offline.

    looking forward to your replies, I am happy about every piece of information you can give me.

    Best regards ;)

    Here you go my friend. http://mattsmarketingblog.com/amazon-2/seo-for-amazon-products/

    The whole private labelling thing (mentioned in the article) interests me, but I'm a bit afraid of the upfront costs. May I ask you roughly what your investment was doing it your way? How much of an inventory are you starting with? Feel free to PM me if you want. Thanks

    Thanks for reply, will read the article after posting this answer!

    I invested around 1200$ in upfront just for goods from china, bought UPC-codes for ~600$ ( required for amazon listing in Germany), bought goods for 500$ here in Germany, and paid a few bucks for the photographer who makes my product-images. Thats all my expenses so far, but I had some sales to friends of mine, so that I got back ~300-350$ yet.

    Yes this is a risk- but without taking chances you can not achieve huge goals! I am not half way there where I want to be, but I learned a lot so far, and solved different problems, and my knowledge, personality and my skills are growing every in huge steps. I definetely would recommend to go for it, even if you could lose money you will get a good feedback about your skills and personality!

    Are there any more hints on how to get up in the results? If someone do not want to share it public a PM would be great too! :)
    Thanks in advance guys!

    if you are ready to lose money, then you invest. Always think invested money is lost money, even if this produces profit or not
