Recommended Products and Services to Help You Make Money on Amazon and Online

Last Updated on October 22, 2019

Recommended Products

I am always asked about various money-making programs. There are hundreds of products and programs being promoted on eBay, Amazon and the internet. Some of them work –but most don’t. Many of them are even outright scams. Believe me, I know. I have bought so many products and I have been disappointed too many times.

Below is a short review of products that I endorse and recommend.

I believe in full disclosure. Many of these products pay me an affiliate commission if you buy them through my link. However, I am very careful about the products I recommend. If I am recommending a product that means I have used it, or in the case of a few products if I have not used it, I have carefully reviewed it and I usually know the people behind it. Also, buying through my link will not raise your price.

Affiliate marketing is a great way to earn money. There is nothing wrong with earning affiliate commissions for recommending products as long as the products you are recommending deliver what they promise. So if you go into affiliate marketing, take the time to find good products that you can stand behind. That is what I have attempted to do here.

If you ever purchase one of these products and have a problem with it, or with getting a refund, please let me know.

Finally –a word of caution: Be careful about buying too many programs, or trying too many things at once. Success on Amazon is best achieved by focusing your efforts on one thing at a time.

Two Ideas to Help You Sell Used Books Online


One of my best-selling books of all time has been and continues to be, my book, How to Sell Used Books on Amazon and eBay.

If you sell books on Amazon, another excellent service is Zen Arbitrage.  This is a service that finds profitable books for you to sell – saving you hours of searching.  The service is a bit expensive but pays for itself with every search.

Peter Valley, of Zen Arbitrage, has put together a special deal just for my readers.  You can get Zen Arbitrage for only $79 per month after the free 14-day trial.  Their regular price is $97 a month, so this is a substantial savings!

Hiring a Virtual Assistant

Virtual Asistant

Do you need help setting up a website, creating eBay and/or Amazon listings? Or how about help with creating a blog or content for blog posts. I use a company in the Philippines called 2nd Office.

Many of their workers are graduates of US Universities. They do very good work and the fees are far less than you would pay in the US or Canada. The owner, Jose, is a friend of mine, so please mention my name when you contact him.

eBay and Amazon Listing and Inventory Tool


For the past 9 years, I have been using a company called Joelister to create eBay listings from my Amazon listings, host my images and manage my inventory.

When an item sells Joelister will handle the fulfillment for you automatically, even when you sleep.  They also send the tracking info to eBay.

Setting Up a Corporation or LLC

Setting Up Corporation

There are tons of advantages to using a corporation or LLC to run your online business. And its quick and easy and fairly cheap to set one up.

I used to recommend a service called Legal Zoom, but I had complaints from my readers about slow service and poor support, so I switched to My

Since making the switch I have set up two corporations and even used them to register a trademark on a private label product and everything went very smooth, fast and the support was excellent.

Finding The Best Keywords


One of the most important things you can do in a listing is finding – and using, the best performing keywords.  I use a service called Merchantwords and have arranged a discount for my readers Instead of the full price of $24/month – my readers only pay $9/month
