Many Amazon sellers, both seasoned and new, turn to private labeling. With all the buzz going on around it, Amazon business owners think they can just jump right into private labeling, create new products, and rake in millions of dollars. This, however, isn’t always the case.
In reality, while private labeling isn’t entirely bad, there’s a lot of parts and pieces that need to be put together before you can make it sustainable. There are also lots of other routes and avenues you can take when starting a business on Amazon—alternative paths that are more beginner-friendly.
In today’s episode, we discuss the facts and myths about private labeling. We explain the pros and cons of creating a private label product as well as the steps to create one. We share some of the biggest roadblocks we’ve met in creating private labels, including issues with customs and the FDA. We also explain why we don’t recommend private label for Amazon beginners and suggest a better alternative to begin building your Amazon empire.
“Private label can be the holy grail of Amazon selling if you could do it correctly - and correctly means slowly.” - Kristin Ostrander
