    Hi guys

    Lately seems like nothing works for me so I've decided to give Amazon a go as I see a lot of people are using them.
    I found a niche which has prices from 1000$ to 4000$ and some low competition.
    The thing is that this looks too good to be true.
    I have like 5-6 keywords, all of them with Easy to rank competition according to Traffic Travis.
    The keywords are all pretty much like this: company that builds the stuff+ model name.
    Also the competition on the first page is as follows:
    1-4 spots: producer's website
    5 amazon link
    the rest just review website and other website selling the stuff.

    Keyword search returns ~100.000 results.
    Once again, according to Traffic Travis all of my keywords are easy to rank.

    What do you guys think? Have I just stumbled upon a gold mine or there's something I'm missing?

    Thank you very much!

    A.I.

    Later edit: Forgot to metion that all the keywords monthly searches total up to 6000 US searches

    interesting that your going for commish on big ticket items... wouldnt the sales be few and far between? ive thought about going for insaine demand and looking to pick up on mass sales for other items due to the cookie being dropped more frequently.

    This.

    And this.

    Those are brand name keywords, and I would not say that those are low competitive.

    If you want to rank, just do it, but don't expect that the ranking is easy.

    I usually avoid brand name, just saying, the choice is your.

    Awesome answers guys! Thank you very much!

    Yes, I think it's better to go for big ticket items rather then cheap stuff.
    Just think that if you make a 1000$ sale, there's 50$ for you just in one sale. If you are selling 100$ items you need 10 sales to get 50$.

    @vikiendu

    Yes, you are 100% right. The only problem is that I can't find any keywords with no brand results on the first page. Can you give me any pointers?
    I always tought going for *brand*+*model*+"review" but there's like 50 searches a month for them and brand link usually on the first page.

    Later edit: after thinking again I should go for keywords with review in it. I only need 10 sales a month to make my website profitable. That's just enough for one webiste I think. Let me know what you guys think!

    Thanks a lot guys!

    Hi everyone

    I'll show you the information that Traffic Travis show me, maybe you can tell me how hard it will be in your experience to rank for that keyword.
    All keywords are Brand+Model+"review".

    If anyone with experience could give his opinion I'd be very grateful.

    Thank you very much!

    Those $1000 items which you are going after are going to be a much harder sell than $100 items and keep in mind that the return/no shipping rate is going to be higher also, why don't you find some $100 range items and start with them till you get some experience with Amazon and, after that you can go for these $1000 items, also, you should be aware that the more items you sell the higher your % will be so If I was in your place I'll reconsider starting to sell high price items at first.
    Anyway, either way you choose to go I wish you all the best.

    I used a very simple trick that i would like to share, go to auction sites, i won't give names, look at amazon affiliate sites started last year January and already making above $1000 copy them with exact match domains even if you have to change "s" with "z" then repeat the process :)

    Best of luck in whatever you choose.
