Course Description

Want to sell on Amazon without private labeling or creating your own listings?

Learn how to leverage existing high sales volume listings by identifying products that are already selling well and sourcing from domestic wholesalers, or through retail arbitrage.

Selling on Amazon FBA (or FBM) can be an exciting and profitable venture.  Billions of dollars are made every year by 3rd party sellers (people like you and I).  

This course is taught by an instructor with 5 years of experience as an Amazon seller.

"Hi Theo, I am looking forward to building a second income stream through this course. My FBA business is coming along nicely after a slow start I am making great sales and building profitability. Soon I will be able to go full time"  Dean Kleb

There are two main ways to sell on Amazon:  You can either create your own brand new listings, or you can leverage existing successful listings.  Both methods have pros and cons (like everything!).  This course focuses on leveraging existing successful listings.

You will learn everything you need to know, from setting up and verifying your Amazon account, to identifying and sourcing the best products to sell.

You will also learn how to win the Buy Box:  This is where 80% of sales on Amazon come from!

No need for a big budget, because you will learn how to do this starting with a small budget and gradually scale up from there.

The only thing you need to bring to this course, is a desire to succeed and the motivation to keep going. Selling on Amazon FBA is not a 'get-rich-quick' scheme. In fact there is no such thing.  However, the rewards can be very big for those who really want them. 


What will you learn in this course:

  • Analyse the Amazon marketplace for the best products to sell
  • Start with a small budget and scale up
  • Take advantage of existing, established Amazon listings
  • Source products using retail arbitrage with free apps and tools
  • Source products wholesale and find the best wholesale prices
  • Take a share of the Buy Box for high sales volume products
  • Use tools to win the Buy Box more of the time
  • Manage multiple products, know which products to re-stock and when

Theo McArthur

Entrepreneur, Amazon Seller & Online Marketer

My name's Theo McArthur and I've been working online since since 1995. I left my job and went full-time online in 2001. Teaching here on Udemy is probably the most satisfying thing I do. Being able to help others to learn life changing techniques and business models.

Over the last 15 years or so I've created and marketed many digital e-learning products and have also worked extensively in the field of affiliate marketing. I've built a number of 'authority' blogs to promote affiliate products and additionally worked on many other methods of marketing and profiting with affiliate offers. 

I have always preferred to have a number of business interests, so in the spring of 2013 I started selling on Amazon.  Previous to that I had never sold any physical products online. Today I also run my own independent e-commerce websites.

I'm still an affiliate marketer and a vendor of my own information products. However, I always wanted to sell physical products, and Amazon was the obvious place to get started.

Starting on Amazon without the guidance of an experienced seller can be tough and the courses I took myself were not complete and were missing certain vital parts of the 'puzzle'. I learned more through trial and error than anything else, and that's what prompted me to create a step-by-step blueprint to success on Amazon.

A year after starting on Amazon, I set up my independent e-commerce store in order to build an asset that was my own and could potentially be sold in the future.

Sometimes I get asked how I manage to get so much done. It's simply a case of organisation and prioritising (is that a word? Anyway, I'm sure you know what I mean!). Obviously I don't do it all myself and I now have full-time and part-time assistants. However, when I first started out, I had nobody. Just myself and a young family to look after at the same time.

If you want something badly enough and you are motivated enough, you will find a way to make it happen!

I fully understand that everybody's different and a business model or income method that suits one person, may not suit another. Therefore here on Udemy, I try to offer a variety of courses to cater for all levels of experience and all aspirations.
