Used Books Sale Online – and you too can make money selling books!

What types of books do you like? Do you have an interest in books? Have you ever thought of trying to sell books online to make money? Perhaps you’re thinking you would like to, but you don’t want to deal with inventory, shipments, customers and all the issues that go along with selling items.

Now, if you have books of your own that you want to sell, then there are some ways you can do that, which I will get into for you.

However, if you would like to sell used books online without any inventory, I can also show you how to do that. So let’s get into it!

Selling Books Online with No Inventory

This is the best part! 

  • No inventory
  • No customers
  • No returns

How do you do that?  How do you sell things without these components?  You do that by becoming an affiliate marketer.

An affiliate marketer promotes books online and receives a commission for any sales, but the merchant actually mails out the products and deals directly with the customer.  You are just the referring partner, that’s it!

Affiliate Marketing Examples

Affiliate marketing is super easy, but there is a process.  Your first step will be to find your niche.  If used books is your niche, you can find lots of merchants that sell used (or new) books and market them for the merchant.

You simply apply with the merchant (in this example, Amazon) and then they will give you links to their products which will pay a commission to you if someone buys through those links.

So, in this example, I am promoting books on my favorite subject, Affiliate Marketing:

The promotion above is where you promote a series of products.  You can also promote one product at a time.  Let’s say you want to write an article and promote just one book!

You might write your article and integrate a promotion like one of these into your article:

If you click on either one of those pictures, it will take you to the Amazon sales page:

Continuing with Amazon as our example, I’m going to take you for a trip inside the platform so you can see how easy it is to find and choose products to display on your website!

In this example, let’s look for used books on motivation:

As you can see, you’ll get a lot of choices.  You can click the “get link” button and get the link for your website.

Now, if want to do a whole row of products like I did above with the affiliate marketing books, you can do that through the “native ads” area like this:

As you can see above, you choose the format (I chose grid), the subject (books & textbooks), the keywords (make money online), and now I choose the products to diplay by clicking “Add” for any book I want!

Then the add will appear like this on your page:

Setting up an affiliate website

Have you taken the first step of setting up your affiliate website yet?  Keep in mind that in order to affiliate market, you will need a website.  Most companies, like Amazon, want to see your site and be sure their products are in alignment with their products and/or services.  That’s very important!
