Maximizing Time Efficiency in Your Amazon Business: Insights by Tim Hellbusch from ALGO Online Retail
Embarking on the Amazon selling journey sparks a common question: "How much time does it take to sell on Amazon?" In this exploration, we will unravel the time commitments necessary for a successful venture in the Amazon marketplace.
How Much Time Is Needed To Sell On Amazon?
The time needed to sell on Amazon can be broken down into 3 phases;
1. Getting Started - which usually requires 20 to 40 hours of learning,
2. Accelerated Progress - where you can put in as much time as you want to grow as big as possible which can sometimes be 40+ hours per week and
3. Cruise Control - where you can just maintain your business with just a few hours per week.
The journey of selling on Amazon necessitates a strategic understanding of the temporal investments involved. From initiating your first product listing to reaching the coveted state of cruise control, we'll dissect the various phases that contribute to the overall time requirements.
Getting Started: The Learning Curve
Initiating an Amazon business requires a foundational learning curve. Allocating time to grasp essential concepts such as product selection, supplier identification, and research is crucial. The initial investment of 20 to 40 hours ensures that you lay a solid groundwork, avoiding common pitfalls.
Accelerated Progress: Beyond the First Product
As success beckons with your inaugural product, the subsequent endeavors become notably more efficient. With the learning curve behind you, the time spent on finding suppliers, vetting them, and conducting research decreases significantly. At the point, you can choose to spend all of your time finding more suppliers and researching new products to grow your business or decide to put your business in cruise control - it all depends on your personal and business goals.
Cruise Control: Efficiently Sustaining Your Business
The pinnacle of the Amazon selling journey for many is achieving cruise control. At this stage, the time commitment shifts from intensive research to a few hours per week dedicated to monitoring key metrics and re-ordering products. Cruise control signifies a well-established portfolio of products and a business that operates smoothly.
