SGW 008: Amazon FBA on the Move, the Road to San Diego – New Product Research Methods for the “Cowboys” who passion pick their products

This time I’m actually driving in my car while podcasting…Woo Hoo.  That’s crazy!  I’m inspired by John Lee Dumas and his daily podcast Entrepreneur on Fire. He inspires me to do more podcasting which in turn allows me to break down what I’m doing as I discuss it.

On today’s episode of the Online Sellers Gone Wild podcast, I talk about product selection as it applies to Amazon business.  When you are choosing a product there are two really important factors to consider:

  • Choose a product based on your passion.
  • Research it thoroughly to really be sure it’s a product buyers want.

My product selection method has changed dramatically.  I now go through a number of very important steps before settling on what I’m going to sell.  It’s all about research for me.

Some of the tools I use in research include:

Knowing the conversion rate of a product is essential and using tools like these will help you determine if your passion is going to translate into a business.
