Amazon, a world-known E-Commerce platform that has grown drastically in the past few years. The Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos’s willingness to sacrifice short-time benefits for long time success has given exponential growth to Amazon. Most of you might have shopped on Amazon but what if I say, that this $280.52 billion company offers you different ways to make money. We are listing a few recognized ones below:
This is one of the most famous affiliate marketing programs across the globe. In simple terms, it means endorsing another vendor’s products on social networking websites. You can join this program for free. Amazon Associate provides you a dashboard, where you can create ads and promote their products by sharing links on social media, blogs, or websites. Each time someone clicks on your affiliated Ads to buy something, then you earn a commission, i.e. Amazon pays you an amount between two and 20 percent of the cost of the product (Deducting the taxes and freight) for your efforts.
It is the simplest way to make money on Amazon. All you need is a vehicle with a valid driving license. The first step is to download the Amazon flex app and enter your personal details for their review. Once your application details and type of vehicle is accepted, you are ready to conduct Amazon deliveries. There are various Amazon deliveries such as Amazon Prime, Amazon Fresh, Amazon Pantry, Amazon Local, etc. Depending upon the type of delivery the pay might vary between $12 to $30 per hour. You will be getting paid twice every week. Note that the pay and other services might vary from one location to another.
Sell on Amazon:
Anyone and everyone ranging from a small retailer, brand owners, Multi-National company (MNC), or Startups can use the Amazon platform to sell their products. If you have a small business, then the Amazon Seller account gives you an option to use its network to increase your customer base. For example, a home run business can reach different corners of the country by using the Amazon network. According to Amazon, Private sellers contribute to more than 50 percent of Amazon’s business. All you need to do is upload high-resolution images of your product and write an attractive description. It is a simple three-step approach: list your product, process orders, and deliver using Amazon.
Amazon’s Mechanical Turk or MTurk is an option to earn a small amount of money just by completing easy and mindless tasks. MTurk is the “Human Intelligence Tasks” which a computer cannot do and requires human intervention. It includes work like data entry, image recognition, proof-reading product descriptions, removing duplicate listings, etc. However, these jobs are not available throughout the year.
Self-publish on Amazon: If you are a teacher, influencer, an author or poet, or even a professional who can share some crucial skills. Then Amazon gives you an opportunity to use their Amazon self-publish program to publish your printed book or e-books for sale on Amazon. Amazon offers you as much as 80% royalty on everything you published using this platform. Amazon provides you several free resources that help any sort of author to publish their book. Amazon takes care of marketing your print, audio, or e-book.
Manufacture for Amazon: You might have seen in supermarkets certain inhouse products with their own branding. Just like that Amazon also has a few of the branded products (E.g. Amazon Basics). This includes almost everything which can be sold on Amazon. This takes away your tension of branding and marketing the product. You manufacture the product and Amazon sells it under their recognized brand.
Now you know different ways to make money on Amazon. Some of these might require special skills. These jobs might vary from country to country but most important is there are many opportunities to grow with Amazon.
