One of the best ways to build online income is by using Amazon. You can either do affiliate marketing for Amazon products, publish ebooks and paperbacks and earn royalties, or start selling print-on-demand products. In order to sell affiliate products you either need a website with huge traffic or social pages with huge followers. In order to earn passive income through ebooks you need to be an exceptionally talented writer and in order to earn through print on demand you need graphic designing skills and digital marketing.

How to do Amazon Keyword Research

If you want to sell on Amazon and want to generate tons of sales, you will have to do keyword research. Doing Amazon Keyword Research means finding what products are trending on Amazon, and what keywords Amazon buyers are using on Amazon to look for the products. Keyword research will help you find keywords that you can use to do SEO on your own product listing or try selling products that are in the same niche.

So, how do you begin?

First of all, make a list of products you are trying to sell. Let’s say you want to sell a coffee maker. Enter this keyword as your primary keywords

Just omit keywords that have maximum and minimum search volume. Maximum search volume means there is too much competition and minimum search volume means there is no interest in that search term.

Now, check the competition for your moderately searched terms. Leave the keywords that are related to the brand name or company name.

Target the keywords that have less competition.

Generating Sales Through FBA

There are numerous ways to sell on Amazon and one of them is called Fulfilled By Amazon or FBA short. The FBA program is not available worldwide, it is available only in the countries where there are Amazon regional offices with warehouses. The FBA program allows you to sell your product under the Amazon brand. In order to use this program, you will first have to be approved by Amazon, once approved, you will have to send your products to the Amazon warehouse and then you can start listing your product on Amazon. When someone buys your product, Amazon will fulfill the order (package your product and ship it to the buyer), that's why it is called Fulfilled By Amazon.
