How To List Books On Amazon
Working for yourself is different that working a day job for one main reason, you actually get rewarded for working fast! When selling online, the faster you can list, the more money you can make. Every minute you waste is money wasted. So naturally we have to ask, what is the fastest way to list? And once you list books, how do you store them? People we teach are always fearful when they start out, thinking, where will I store all these books? Are they going to be stacked in my bedroom and bathroom? Well, do yourself a favor. If you have a bookshelf, head over and count how many books are on it. We can bet that it's a surprisingly large number! Even after selling for several years, we use only 3 bookshelves in our spare bedroom to store our inventory. If you have less space, simply be pickier about the books that you buy and purchase higher profit books for resale! There are business that sell collectible books that never have more than 100 titles in their inventory!
Unlike most business which require a good deal of sophisticated equipment and lots of experience, listing books on Amazon is beyond simple. You can list 100 books a day with no web designers, no hired help, and no advanced equipment. In fact, we don't even use a computer! 100% of our research and book listing is done using the Amazon Seller's App on our phones! The Sellers App allows you to scan bar-codes of books, see their current listing price, and list them, all in less than 2 minutes! If you want to know how to list books on Amazon, just download the Seller's App and follow directions, it's self-explanatory!
How We Store Our Amazon Books
Strangely enough, the very best way to store books you have for sale, is on a bookshelf. We typically list books that we source within a day (so they don't build up) and they go straight on the shelf in the order that they're listed. We have one shelf where you can find vintage/antique books, a couple of shelves for fiction, and the balance for modern non-fiction books. Since we focus on books that sell for at least $20 to avoid clogging up our storage space with books that are low profit and slow to sell. At any given time, we have around 500 books in our inventory which can be stores on 3 bookshelves in our small bedroom.
Since we typically sell less than 10 books a day, it's not a problem for us to remember the rough order things were listed in find them on the shelves. However, if you sell lots of books, you will need a more sophisticated inventory system than ours.
