If you are just getting started you may wonder what are the top products to sell online and how do you get access to those to get started selling them?
Selling products online is one of the many ways to make money on the Internet.
A few years ago I read a comment from Perry Marshall that went something like this…..
“Making money online is easy. Find something someone needs or wants and sell it to them for a profit”.
Why do we always try to complicate things, right!
There are a couple of different ways to approach this.
1. Sell low-cost items in volume to make more money.
2. Sell high-cost items with fewer sales to make the same amount of money.
What is the big variable?
Your commission rate, or the amount you are earning per sale.
If you are selling your own product you are keeping all of the money after you pay your overhead.
If you are selling someone else’s products, let’s say as an affiliate marketer, you will earn commission rates anywhere from 1% to 80% depending on the affiliate program you are in. My No. 1 Choice.
Selling digital products earns you higher commission rate than selling physical products, usually. There are other advantages and disadvantages to selling digital and physical products.
I will let you decide what you want to sell in terms of your own products or being an affiliate. Let me just give you what are some of the top selling products online right now based on Google Trends.
Some of these may surprise you!
Selling products in the diet or nutrition niche is always going to be in demand. People are constantly starting and stopping diets, or looking for new and better ways to eat more healthy.
One of the things I like about selling Paleo Bars is you are not selling a diet fad that will go out of style as soon as the next diet becomes more popular.
The Paleo Diet is based on eating what humans ate 15,000 years ago. The short story of the Paleo Diet does not eat anything processed.
Paleo Bars are manufactured so you can eat them in place of a meal, or just as a snack to give you a boost when you need them. This is a market that always figures to be there and have new people entering it every day.
This is a product that really demonstrates how the market will always solve a problem that government creates. In this case, it has gotten to the point where you can not smoke anywhere inside and you can not even smoke outside in a lot of places either.
These are digital cigarettes that have a battery-powered device which simulates tobacco smoking. You no doubt have seen vape shops pop up all over the place and have seen people smoking these vaporizer cigarettes.
People buy these online as well. This is a product that is in big demand right now and I can not envision anyway it will go away in the future.
Horses Head Masks
This one is hard for me to believe, but it is true. I read about a guy who was starting his own Amazon Fulfillment business and decided to try selling horses head masks.
I am not talking about just at Halloween. He sells them all long year long and is earning a profit of over $1k a day!
Who would’ve ever thought of this niche? This is a great example of finding a non-competitive niche and selling a product people want at a profit for you.
There was a time when it looked like ebooks might really hurt hardback and paperback book sales. The Internet has hurt retail sales in all ways including bookstores such as Barnes & Noble.
However, book sales have not declined and are actually on the uprise. Some people like to hold a book and read it away from their computer or tablet.
Another niche to get in related to book sales is selling used books. I recently came across an interesting article on a blog titled “5000% ROI Selling Used Books On Amazon FBA“. In the article is a link to an e-course called “Book Boss” from Derrick Strickland where he teaches you how to break into the used book market and make big money in it.
You can sell products online with your own website or blog. You can also sell products online with an affiliate sales page you are given when you join an affiliate program.
Another way to make money selling the top products people want is to open your online store. One of the most popular ways to do this right now is to open your own Shopify Store.
They describe themselves this way: “Shopify is a complete e-commerce solution that allows you to set up an online store to sell your goods. It lets you organize your products, customize your storefront, accept credit card payments, track and respond to orders — all with a few clicks of the mouse.”
eBay or Amazon
Amazon is the top retail online store in the world. eBay is the top auction site in the world.
Both can be a source for you to sell products online. So can Craigslist or having your own website or blog.
What is best?
I do not have a personal opinion on this except to say that affiliate marketing is still the best source for finding products to sell if you do not have your own.
Drop shipping is another avenue you can look into. I suggest you start by taking a free course on affiliate marketing with Wealthy Affiliate.
