Just recently I read the Kindle Book Four Ways to Make Money with Amazon: Arbitrage, eCommerce, Kindle, and Amazon Associates by S.Herrmann.  The book offers 4 ways to make money with Amazon.  

Since 2000, Selling on Amazon has been helping individuals and businesses increase sales and reach new customers.  Today, more than 40% of Amazon's total sales come from third-party selections.  

In 2007, With the release of the first Kindle. Amazon offered Kindle Direct Publishing, which allows authors and publishers to independently publish their books directly through Amazon.

The Amazon Associates affiliate program was launched in 1996.  This program has been around for 20yrs.  It's a proven way to help individuals make money by advertising the millions of products that Amazon offer.

The book is a quick read, only 35 pages.  The book gets straight to the topic, no fluff in this book.  The author explains that he has tried all 4 of the money making ideals in his book and the writing of this book is based on his experience. I found the book to be on point based on my experience with the Amazon selling platforms.  

In his chapter about Arbitrage he links out to some great resources and share locations where you can find great deals on inventory to sell on Amazon.The chapter about eCommerce explain the strategy about how to tie your Amazon store and website together for increased sales.  Again he links out to some great resources that can help you accomplish this.

The Kindle chapter explains the most common pricing of Kindle Books and Kindle Programs like Kindle Unlimited.  The author discuss Kindle Book formatting and long term strategies for making money with Kindle Books.

The chapter on Amazon Associates affiliate program describes how to make money with the program.  He explains the commission rate and explain how to use your blog to make money with the Amazon Associates  affiliate program.

I rate Four Ways to Make Money with Amazon: Arbitrage, eCommerce, Kindle, and Amazon Associates with 5 out of 5 stars.  The book gets straight to the point with precise and accurate information based on my experience.  The book is up to date and can be put to use immediately.  Author also provides two additional ways to generate income with Amazon.

1. Create your own space – Working from your chair in your bedroom or the kitchen table will not work.  I used to share a office with my my wife, that didn't work for me.  I found a area up stairs in the open play area my kids use.  I created my own office in a small area over by the window and moved a desk and all the other office things I needed to do my job.  Try to eliminate all distractions in your dedicated office space and only use it for work – just like you would do at your desk in an office.
