The Amazon business model offers you many opportunities to approach business on the internet in many different ways.

It offers benefits to home business people, manufacturers, web marketers, retailers, and wholesalers.

If you are in business now and want to increase your sales. or if you are not and want to start a home business that is easily set up and will generate an excellent income stream for you, then consider using Amazon.

It is simple to use and you do not need any technical knowledge to do well with this model.


An important point to be made is that using this is free. In some cases you pay a commission if they sell something for you, but you do not have to make investments to start making money.

You combine the benefits of drop shipping with a built in customer base and expansive product selection. And because of the built in customer base you avoid one of the leading reasons for online business failure. And that is inadequate advetising and marketing.

This is an excellent opportunity for both work at home moms and work at home dads.


The following list gives you an overview of what you can do taking advantage of the Amazon business model.

  • set up your own Amazon store.
