If you’re interested in starting an e-commerce business, Amazon’s a great place to start. I will show you four simple products you can create and sell on Amazon to start your e-commerce business today. So many people are looking for ways to make money online, there are plenty of options, and not all of them are ideal for most startups.
Most individuals are looking for ways to make more money. However, there are only so many hours in the day, and working full-time means less time for creating new products. This article outlines an idea that will get you started with e-commerce quickly by creating four products for free in one day and making money within your first month in business.
The great thing about these products is that you can create them yourself, so they are entirely original and give you complete control over the design, the sales page, and even the content. But before you begin selling on Amazon, you must have a plan. A good starting point is to identify what products work best for you. Ask yourself questions like, “Do you want to start with one product or four?” or “Do I have a niche market?” It’s your decision; this is your new business. You decide how you want to run it and how you sell your products.
First, let me tell you what Amazon KDP is. Amazon KDP is a platform within the Amazon marketplace that allows anyone to publish and sell books for free. But don’t worry, we are not writing a book. A good book needs an eye-catching design to make it stand out. For that, we are going to use Canva.com. Canva is a great platform to create and design any product you might want to sell, and it has tons of templates to choose from.
The first product to consider is creating a journal. In Canva, there are many different journal templates available, along with graphics and customization options to create the perfect design. Journaling is an effective way of expressing your feelings and emotions without any filter.
Writing in a journal has tremendous benefits like lowering levels of anxiety and depression, improving personal relationships, and learning to express feelings of gratitude. Creating a journal to sell on Amazon is a great product to start with. It costs nothing to use the free Canva version to create journal graphics and upload images you want to use in your design.
The next product we can create for free in Canva is a calendar. Most people look at a calendar at least once a day. It helps us keep our lives organized and on time.
I know what you are thinking; how can you sell a calendar on Amazon? It’s not the actual product you are selling but the niche you’re selling in. Your calendar becomes an advertisement for your niche. For the holidays, Canva provides many designs for Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day, and other holidays. There is no limit to creating a calendar in any niche you want.
Another great product to create for free on Canva is a planner. A planner helps to remind us of what meetings or engagements we have coming up and helps organize our messy lives. We have all used a planner at some point in our lives.
Have you ever shopped for a planner and could not find a design you loved? Now you can create one that will be something you can share with everyone and be proud that you created it.
One final product you can create for free to sell on Amazon is sketchbooks. Sketchbooks are shockingly simple to create. All you need to create this book is a cover design. That’s it! Design a cover with as many blank pages as you want for your sketchbook, and you are ready to publish. Canva makes this product easy to create with its ready-made templates.
These four products that once created and published to Amazon KDP could potentially make you over $2000 a month. All can be made in one day. There are no excuses since access to both Amazon KDP, and canva.com are free. Use the information to start your new business today.
