Amazon selling

Recommended Posts

Is there much money in this? See loads of sponsored ads trying to teach how to do it.

From the video I've just watched I get the jist is buying from AliExpress or wherever in bulk cheap and reselling. Surely it's not that easy

I have 5000 Mickey mouse bags to sell.

What do I do?

I create a YouTube video telling people how to make money buying in bulk to sell on Amazon.

I will hint at my item, without telling you about it because across the thousands who will see my video, someone will see me items and buy. Sorted.

Yep pretty much, and the exact same as ebay. 

I've been there and done it...

Problem is finding something that will make money and unfortunately China now has that wrapped up. They can buy more than you, so can sell it cheaper than you. Most the common stuff sold is roughly £1 or so more expensive from the UK, for those that don't want to wait 3/4 weeks for delivery, but @ say even £2 profit per item you would need to be shifting loads each week to earn a living from it, and recoup initial investment. Most of the 'cheap' UK sellers are also Chinese so you can't really win lol.

Depends. Product, demand and market.

Then costs.

 

If you can get something for a very good price that their is a market for then yes there is money in it.

But most do it the other way around. Waste money setting up Amazon, looking for a product, then hoping someone will buy it.

eBay is the same.

 

Used to make a good amount of money from eBay. But that got ruined when they started freezing every transaction and telling me every sports supplement was a drug.

Even though I linked them all their sponsored sellers and eBay stores selling the same products.

 

Fun times.

You can make money, as others have said it depends on what you're trying to do and sell,
If it's just dumb s**t cluttering your house you don't want anymore amazon/ebay are useful.
if you're trying to start a business relying on it then it's not the best method.
I made thousands selling painted warhammer mini's on ebay in the past so it can be a useful tool if the demand is high enough for the items you want to sell.

YouTube is the biggest platform to make money without selling feck all. It's through ads.

The only problem is.. You have to have good sh1t to put up, and keep doing it.

It's around £3,000 per million views.

I’ll take this as gospel as I’ve never researched it. Thanks because I always wondered how much these guys get paid.

It must be a hard way to make a living though. If Jesus and/or Mohammed were proselytising purely for financial gain for the then equivalent of three grand for a million followers I doubt either of them would have bothered.

That's probably just YouTube view money. The real money is sponsored content (eg an influencer wearing and bigging up a label or brand etc)

Yeah, I’d figured that.  Unfortunately I’m old enough to remember when bands used to play gigs for pretty much nothing because they were promoting record sales which made them their money. Because music is so easily copied nowadays bands make their money out of touring instead, plus the advertising revenue that they get out of promoting pretty much anything.

Both benefitted in other ways.

Power, money, pussy.

Old-time Scarfaces.

 

Both would get killed by the CIA and MI6 today.

Amazon is hard as hell to do, takes years to build up and so does ebay I now do over £10k sales a month on ebay and just under £8k on Amazon full time. 

Wouldn't pay attention to any of them ads that make it out to be easy as there are millions of other sellers you will be competing with I have contracts will supplier which took years to build.

I'm pretty sure it's near that figure for any monotised YouTube vid per million views.

My kids watch arsewipes on YouTube, gamers etc. Or idiots opening up them mystery boxes. They get millions of views per day and are creaming it in financially.

Or them Fail videos.. They get massive hits. There's one video just showing Trains, it has like 13 million views! Crazy.

Get something original up, if it goes viral you could pay off a good slab of your mortgage.

The Joe Rogan podcast, he put up a 1hr 44 min podcast yesterday and it's at nearly 1 million hits already. So 3k a day for him.  And the guy does around 5x per week.

Anyways, I'm rambling now lol.. YouTube is deffo an avenue to make some dosh tho.

A guy filmed himself drinking 32oz soft drink and had 3 million views within a week. Not being funny but that can't be sustained

Lol. It's a crazy platform.

That Ed Sheeran song 'The shape of you' has hit over a Billion views.. So 1,000,000,000, with 3k per million...

That's why they stream music videos on YouTube for 'free'

I've got a 3 year old. She watches all these kids videos with 100's millions of views. Not sure if child content gets the same £ but it's insane money. I'm sure there are factories just putting out child crap for ££.

There's no end to it. YouTube aren't going to get out of bed the wrong side one day and say alright you cheeky cu**s you've had a good run now f**k off. I think the only way YouTube will not be a big money earner is more and more people push out the same kind of content so the clicks are basically diluted.

My daughter does the same with the LOL doll video channel. They're killing it with views! And then killing my wallet when it comes to 15 quid to buy her one of those silly LOL doll things per pop. It's a plastic ball with 2x or 3x dolls the size of bloody smurfs inside.

Overall I reckon it's a good thing tbh, the amount of knowledge on there, it'd take you many lifetimes to watch it all and take in.

The money part about it, it's what drives people to give away their knowledge. They're selling it, but it's sort of Free to the end user.

The kid part of it is deffo dubious tho IMO. You have adults manipulating their children, in order to manipulate other children, in a way that neither of them do not understand.. For financial gain to the adult...

The channels my kids watch.. There's nothing bad on there obviously, but I can see what the adults are doing to make revenue on there.. It makes me feel uneasy man. You're basically pimping out your children on the internet.

I think it's brilliant. You can find info on so many things like how to work on your car or how to do jobs around the house and you can learn about the honey badger.

I do not agree with the 20minute videos with 1 minute of content. Rest of it is them indulging in the love of their own voice. Chrisfix etc clearly invest money back in their channels and the quality shows but there so much click bait on there now

Anything over 6 mins that doesn't cut to the chase by 4 mins in, I skip to the next.

Can't be doing with 15 mins of chatting BS for 1 min of info.

Tonnes of good stuff on there tho. I'm into the Prepper stuff atm, camping, fishing etc. Loads of good car DYI stuff there too. If I ain't watching that, it's usually astronomy, wildlife, technology docs, or standup comedy bits.

Then obviously Pornhub once the light of my life fecks off to bed :D
