Amazon Australia is Coming
Once in a lifetime you will see an ocean of opportunity so big it almost makes your head spin. The online shopping giant Amazon is coming to Australia and there is no stopping it. With a whopping 1 out of every 2 dollars in the US being spent online with Amazon, the insane potential it brings is obvious. With over 370 million items offered on their shelves, it is far easier to find an opportunity than not to.
Australian consumers spent upward of 1 billion dollars with the US giant in 2016. Consider that spend was with waiting up to 45 days for international deliverly and paying large postage. It doesn’t take a genius to predict what is going to happen with online shopping numbers when the wait time and postage is significantly lessened with Amazon Australia.
Be Prepared and Pounce Early
I’m fairly sure most of you have heard people say that good business is partly being in the right place at the right time. Recognising opportunity when it presents itself and taking massive action. Well in my opinion, with Amazon coming to Australia, this is one of those “ahhh” moments. One of those business moments that forever haunt you, muttering “why didn’t I see that and act”!
We know it is coming, so what should we do about it?
Well I believe a major opportunity lies in affiliate websites and marketing. If you have never heard of affiliate marketing before, that’s ok. It is not confusing or hard to set up and the rewards are about to skyrocket with Amazon Australia. I will break it down simply so we can get on the same page, and then I will expand.
Step.1 Build an Affiliate Website
Step.2 Become an Affiliate Reseller of Amazon Products
Step.3 Choose your Products and start Earning (What’s trending on Google?)I realise I have explained that very simply, but at its core the process really is that easy. If you are prepared to invest the time and energy in the initial set up phase, the earning potential is truly amazing. With every sale being made through your site you receive a commission from Amazon. The best part about this is that even if the shopper does not buy your product, and goes on to buy something else online, you still get the commission! How awesome is that! You see because they entered Amazon through your affiliate websites, you still get paid. What I find most amazing about this is that Amazon basically do all the work. They market the product, take the order, wrap and deliver it. When it comes to the old saying “Money for Jam”, I’m pretty sure this structure of online business fits perfectly.
How Much Does It Cost To Set-Up?
Your account with Amazon is free. In some cases affiliate websites programs will review your site as an apropriate on-seller of their products and then give you the green light. If you want to see how easy it is to set up an account, check out the American Amazon sign up here. Within their platform they provide you with everything you need to monitor and optimise your site. A complete analytics is already built in so you can track all your visitors and sales.
Your expense is the affiliate website. When you consider how much a regular business costs to set up with leases, insurances, stocking, staffing and after market guarantees etc, $1500 – $2000 is a drop in the ocean. The potential for massive affiliate website results with Amazon coming to Australia has never been so great.
Which business niche should I choose?
It has been stated that media items like books and music will be first in the roll out, along with electronics and of course apparel. They plan to set up distribution warehouses in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. This will expand over time so do not get bogged down into these niches. Market research has to be conducted for any product you decide on, so let your mind run free.
