Every wonder, "Just what are the best products to sell online?" The answer can mean the difference between making a profit or suffering huge losses.
After all, there's an infinite number of products that can be sold profitably. Which should you choose?
There are three media products that are ideally suited for selling on the Internet. They are:
Why is selling books, DVDs, and CDs ideal for making money online?
The reasons are numerous, but lets discuss the major ones. For example, one or more of these products are used by virtually every man, woman, and child above the age of ten every single day.
Some are used out of necessity, some for pure entertainment and fun. For instance, lots of books are read daily for sheer pleasure.
In addition, they are good products to sell from home because they're small, light weight, and can be easily shipped anywhere in the world.
But they're all potential customers who are part of a huge worldwide market.
These are consumer products purchased in large quantities every single day by millions of people. Just how big is the market?
In 2009 bookselling giant Amazon.com reported a massive $24.51 billion in sales. That's a lot of reading, watching, and listening!
When was the last time you read a book? When was the last time you watched a DVD or listened to a CD? Are you atypical or do you think you're an average person?
To run a profitable business you need a plentiful source of the best products to sell online. You can sell cheap used books online, DVDs, and CDs that can be found in large numbers in almost any geographical location for pennies on the dollar.
Just how many books are out there? R.R. Bowker reports that approximately 175,000 books are published every year.
That works out to about 479 published books per day. Take it one step further and you discover there are nearly 20 books published per hour, 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.
Wow! When I sell my used books online it’s not unusual for me to make 10 times my cost in profit.
USA Today reported about 1.9 billion DVDs are sold annually. That's 5.2 million DVDs sales per day. With a market that huge, you can sell used DVDs online very profitably.
According to RolloGradray.com, 2008 North American CD sales topped $4.9 billion. At an average cost of $15 per CD, that comes to about 326,666,667 CDs - about 894,977 sales per day. Consequently, selling used CDs can significantly add to your bottom line.
As you can see, finding products to sell online is far easier than you imagined.
