5 Tips on What to do Before Creating an Amazon Seller Account
In recent months, Amazon has seen a surge in sales, and a good portion of that surge has been due to third-party sellers, which means that if you are looking to start your own business and sell through Amazon, now is certainly not a bad time to try. Please continue reading to learn more about some of the things you should do before setting out on your next chapter.
- Know what you’re going to sell and how you’re going to sell it. This means creating or assembling a predetermined number of a certain product to start, and knowing where you will get it from, how you will get it to customers, and more.
- Do not start your business without having an easily-identifiable logo. If you have to hire someone to help create a logo that truly illustrates your brand, culture, and purpose, do so. Many people buy things simply because they recognize that the product has a logo they trust.
- When listing your products, ensure you use keyword-rich, SEO-optimized content so that you maximize your chances of ranking and thereby reaching various consumers looking to purchase your product.
- Ensure you have a financial backup. Of course, plenty of businesses take off right from the beginning, and on Amazon, there is a strong chance this will be the case for you. However, it is a good general rule of thumb to simply have some money on reserve. Simply banking on your product to sell like hot cakes from the start is not the wisest, which is why with at least 6-months-worth of reserve money on hand, you have a cushion and can buy some time for your product to take hold.
- Have a knowledgeable Amazon CPA on your side who can keep track of your finances, accounting, and advise you through every step of the process ahead.
