How to Make Money From Anywhere:

An Amazon Selling Update

I have been selling on Amazon as my main source of income for nine months now! I still love it and my business continues to grow each month. When I started, my goal was to grow to $10k in sales a month by the time I was a year in. I was able to do it! And a lot quicker than I’d ever imagined!

Not only do I have the freedom of working for myself and making my own hours, but it’s something I can do while traveling the country in my RV. I’ve been working part-time hours and making a full-time income for the last 5 months!

I first heard about selling on Amazon when I was looking for something I could do while traveling to earn an income. I came across The Selling Family and their Amazon Selling Bootcamp.

7 Day Email Course: Everything You Need to Know to Start Selling on Amazon

Having worked in ecommerce, I knew about selling on Amazon and Amazon FBA (Fulfilled by Amazon, where they store all your inventory and ship orders for you as customers buy) but I didn’t know anything about retail arbitrage.

I signed up for the free 7 Day email course to get to know more about it. From there I moved on to the Bootcamp and it’s now been 9 months since completing and sending in my first shipment.

I love it so much, I’m constantly talking about it and telling others how great it is and how anyone can do it. I am often asked a variations of these three questions:

  • Does it still work, are people still able to do retail arbitrage?
  • What do you sell?
  • How do you know what to buy?

In this short update video I answer those questions as well as a little update on how it’s going and what it looks like!

Please comment any other questions below and subscribe to my YouTube channel! I’ll be updating more and I’d love to help anyone else who wants to do this as it’s been an amazing gig for me!

    Hi Nikki,
    Your blog posts inspired me to sign up for the Amazon Booy Camp. I’m very excited to learn more. When you shop do you only hit the clearance section? Do you ever figure by one get one deals or sales?

      Awesome!! I shopped clearance first as I was learning but now I shop all over the store. And yes, definitely take advantage of any sale if the price is right! I usually will calculate it at 25% off since that’s what it comes out to.

    Nikki! Just wanted to say that your post few weeks ago inspired me to sign up for the boot camp as well. However after few days of sourcing and not finding anything I decided to try used books. And looks like thats has a potential. Do you sell used books? What are your thoughts on books fba?

      Hi! I would definitely keep scanning! It took me 3 weeks before I found anything when I started. I haven’t sold used books but I do know that is a big niche for people and I think Jessica even has a book specific training. I also saw a post in the FB group recently about this so I know there’s lots of info and help out there! Sorry I don’t know more on it. I hope you don’t give up on RA just yet!

    Hi Nikki,

    Wanted to ask about this Amazon Arbitrage. I noticed you mentioned you wish you would’ve started a while ago while you had your desk job however what would you reccomend to a person like me who has a FT job with 9-5type hours? I noticed some posts you can spend hours a day on all of it? Squeeze it on the weekends? What kind of profit (not revenue) did you see yourself with in the beginning? Would you recommend it for someone who wants to do it FT but also is starting their own eccomerce business but quit my 9-5job? Would love to hear any feedback 🙂 Thanks!
