How to Sell Phone Cases on Amazon | Strategy to Beat the Competition


let’s check out what the numbers look
like what’s going on YouTube welcome to the ACM market in this video I’m gonna
be showing you how to sell cell phone cases and how to get into this very
competitive category on Amazon and I hope you’re excited because I’m also
gonna be revealing to you or very hot product as we go through the process and
I show you this strategy just want to mention real quick this is the ATM
market the channel of affiliate marketing entrepreneurship and Amazon
FBA if you have a second I hit the subscribe button below I’d really
appreciate the support so yeah last year I started selling cell
phone cases on Amazon and I did pretty well with them I was selling about a
thousand cases a month and making some decent revenue on the other side now if
you don’t already know cell phone cases and cell phone accessories is a very
very competitive category to get into you’ll easily rank page number 10
forever not unless you go about it with the right strategy that I’m gonna show
you right now so how I went about finding a good product and a good cell
phone case to start selling so the first thing I did guys was I had to think
about it how could I sell a cell phone case that isn’t how yet if it’s not out
yet that means there’s no competition for it
that means there’s not a lot of stutters for it yet it’s a completely brand new
product brand new to Amazon with zero reviews that’s barely gonna get started
fresh like any other product so what I did was I had to figure out what are the
new cell phones coming up for the year if there’s new cell phones coming out
obviously there’s gonna be new cell phone cases coming out for those cell
phones so I went over on Google and I did my research to figure out exactly
what are the new cell phones coming out for the year with those new cell phones
I decided to get on Amazon and start targeting those cases since those new
cell phones aren’t out the cases are not out here either so all I did was hop on
Google I did some research on cell phone release dates to see exactly what are
the new cell phones coming out that way I know what are the new cell phone cases
that I should target on Amazon so if you know a Google search of
cellphone release dates in 2018 you’ll see that in this month Google is telling
us that the galaxy note 9 is going to be coming out in August and so where’s the
Morrow’s III so right away guys these are brand new cell phone cases that have
never been out on Amazon they have no competition and that you could actually
get into right away let me show you so if you go over to Amazon now let’s first
look up our cell phone case that’s been out for a while something that’s very
popular or something that we know it’s gonna have a lot of competition then
we’re gonna compare the numbers to a brand new cell phone case like this one
right here for the Galaxy Note 9 so this one’s gonna be coming out in August this
month so if anything those cases should already be in the Amazon warehouse and
we should be able to see all some numbers on it but first let’s look up
our cell phone case that’s been out that we know has competition on it
and obviously the most popular cell phones are the iPhones so last year the
iPhone X came out this was a completely brand new cell phone right here so we’re
gonna need a completely brand new cell phone case so we could have used this as
for the same situation right here we could have gone on Google looked up the
iPhone X and started targeting this cell phone case because last year it was a
completely brand new case meaning there was nothing on the market no competition
so as you can see the reviews are at 499 244 let’s check out the jungle scale
numbers so yeah iPhone X is selling over 2,000
cases a month with an average reviews of 648 so 640 that’s your competition right
there that’s very very difficult to try to hop into this cell phone case and try
to hop into this market the iPhone X as of right now you’d be definitely
impossible to try to get in and get page number one ranked number one too many
reviews guys there’s too much competition but the sales are there
there’s definitely a lot of people buying cases but just way to competitor
now let’s check out the numbers on one of these phones that we found right here
the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 I know that’s a very popular case so that probably be
the best one we should go with let’s check out those numbers now we’re gonna
see the Galaxy Note 9 numbers no 9 case so like I mentioned this is for a
completely brand new phone that’s going to be coming out this month August of
2018 let’s check out what the numbers look like so these cases are selling over 3,000 a
month and have an average review of five so think about it guys there’s
absolutely no competition for this cellphone case right here it’s very
coming out and that’s exactly how you could get into something cell phone
cases on Amazon that’s how I did it when I first started all I did was google
search new cell phones coming out I decided to target the cell phone cases
for those new cell phones and this is what the numbers were looking like for
me also guys how these people are studying on 3,000 cases a month I
honestly have no idea since the cell phone has birdee came out but as you can
see there’d be a great idea to target this case right here because there’s
absolutely no competition so that’s exactly how you can start selling cell
phone cases on Amazon and get into this very competitive category you want to do
some research find out what are the new cell phones coming out and target those
cell phone cases now I want to give you guys a few extra tips that I learned
from my experience in selling cases on Amazon so you guys can keep a lookout in
case you want to jump into the market awesome the first tip I have is taking
the right cell phone case now this is going to be very hard guys because
there’s dozens and dozens of cases to choose from
when you go over to Alibaba you’re gonna see endless amounts of listings of cell
phone cases that you could sell for the Galaxy Note 9 so I definitely recommend
just do some research first try to find out exactly what are the hot selling
ones and try to target those specifically the second tip I have is
ordering at least 400 cases at first so for your initial order you want to order
at least about a good 400 cases because once the sale will start going and
especially for cell phone cases they they start going fast guys the sale will
start piling up very quickly and that you’re gonna run through those 400 cases
in about a week or two so I definitely recommend order at least 400 cases to
start with maybe even 500 and just so you don’t run out of inventory in about
a week or two because as you seen guys there were 3,000 sales of cell phone
cases each month so 3,000 and you only have 400 in your inventory you won’t
have enough the next tip I have is you kind of want
to differentiate your product they’re kind of different your product different
differ your cell phone case from all the other ones because once Amazon gets your
cell phone case if they see that it’s like a lot of other cell phone cases
it’s basically the same one very similar the same thing they’re gonna put it in a
pile of all cell phone cases that look like yours I had to learn this the hard
ways guys when people started getting cell phone cases that weren’t from me so
what I did was I included a screen protector with my cell phone case when
people were getting my cell phone case they weren’t getting their screen
protector as noted on the listing so they were you know putting up complaints
I had a contact Amazon and Amazon let me know that they ended up putting my cell
phone case with everybody else’s now what I had to do was create basically a
whole new listing and separate my cell phone case so it’s not with that big old
pile anymore it was definitely a big hassle for you definitely want to do so
your customers are not getting cases from another seller the next step I have
is creating a great listing especially for cell phone cases guys if you go to
the higher sellers you know the top sellers of cell phone cases you’re gonna
see that their listings are ridiculous they have super photos super product
description with more photos on there bullets
for days titles for days you’re definitely gonna have to invest in some
money maybe outsource a copywriter for your listing because the competition’s
listening especially for cell phone cases is very very heavy guys next on
the list is the photos so for photography on cell phone cases guys
what I did was I just got my suppliers photos I had them give me all their
photos from the supplier and those photos I took through a photo editor
someone that does Photoshop and had them work on those photos you know grabbed a
cell phone case and put in their lifestyles he tweaked the photos a
little bit make him look a little more realistic and so I wouldn’t really
recommend to get a photographer just for a cell phone case that’s my opinion
all I did was get my supplier cell phone photos send them to all someone who does
photo editing and have them tweak him up a bit because you’ll see that your
competitor are gonna have some very very tweaked
cellphone photos they’re gonna have little descriptions on their photos
they’re gonna have little details on their photos that you want to go ahead
and check out I’d recommend you to go into your competition check out their
photos check out how they’re there they’re stacking up their photos and do
the same to yours next on the list is the reviews guys especially for cell
phone cases you’re gonna need some initial reviews to get your sales going
at least about 10 of them when people go on to the Amazon market they’re gonna
see dozens of dozens of cell phone cases if your cell phone case doesn’t have any
reviews to back it up you’re not going to get any sales guys I really hate to
break it to you and that really goes for almost any single product if you don’t
have those initial reviews I know it’s very hard right now with all the review
stuff going on with Amazon manipulation or whatever but I would recommend you
that I’ll still try to search for those our initial reviews to get on to your
listing because they make all the difference especially for the cell phone
cases it’s so dang competitive if you don’t have no social status on your
listing you’re not gonna get any sales people are gonna hop out go look at
another cell phone case that does have a lot of reviews on it next is the Amazon
PPC guys so Amazon PPC for cell phone cases is a bit ridiculous it’s very very
high and very very expensive so what I would recommend anyone to do especially
for cell phone cases is just set up in Auto campaign and slowly start bidding
more and more start off on the lower suggested bid rate you know if it’s
telling you between 90 cents and two dollars start off with ninety cents and
slowly work your way up to where you’re getting a decent amount of clicks a day
we’re not spending too much on a per click so after ninety cents you want to
go up to 95 cents maybe up to a dollar slowly work your way up until you have a
decent amount of clicks per day because honestly you’re gonna see that the
suggested for cell phone cases is a very expensive bid it’s very very competitive
guys the top sellers for cell phone cases have a ton of advertising money so
they don’t mind blowing up $3.00 per click guys so I definitely recommend you
to just start an auto campaign and slowly work your will be your bed up so
you not spending too much on Amazon PPC now
the last tip and this is the most important tip for cell phone cases guys
the most important tip if you do if you do decide to start cell phone cases once
you start selling guys you’re gonna see that the sales and for any product
you’ll see that the sales slowly come around you’ll start selling about five
the first day then maybe seven the next you’ll be at flog the next day and
before you know it you’re gonna be having fifteen or twenty sales every
single day especially for cell phone cases guys a lot of sales go on every
single day so you’re gonna start seeing those sales start racking up very fast
so what I would recommend to you is as soon as you start getting ten sales a
day for at least three to four days in a row contact your supplier and get your
next order going right away you don’t want to run out of inventory when it
comes to cell phone cases guys because if you do run out of inventory by the
time you get your next batch the competition is going to pass you up so
you definitely want to have your supplier on check as soon as you start
seeing ten sales rolling around for a good three three four days in a row
contact them right away and make sure they’re on it right away guys because
them just messing up them accidentally not sending your order in on time the
competition is going to pass you up guys cell phone cases is very very
competitive so you can be on page number two three and on page number one if your
supplier doesn’t send you your next order on time you’ll go all the way back
to number five six maybe even number its page number ten so it’s very important
to have those cases backed up as soon as you run out of your first four hundred
units and you won’t start seeing sales guys with the cell phone cases I was on
page number two number three and I was getting about twenty five sales a day I
wasn’t even on page one I was averaging about page number two three and I was
getting around twenty on the higher and I was getting even thirty sales a day
not even hitting page one now for me I honestly decided to get out of cell
phone cases due to the fact that the profit wasn’t there as you could
obviously see there’s there usually only about ten to fifteen dollars meaning
that there’s only between three to five dollars the most in revenue for
yourself in cases for each cellphone case at least so the reason I got out of
it is because there’s definitely not a lot of profit on the other side guys a
little too much time to put into it but if you want to dip your toes with it if
you’re interested in Solem cell phone cases you feel like that’s your niche
right there I definitely recommend you to use this strategy just do a little
research guys find out what are the new cell phone cases coming out target those
new cell phone cases that way you’re able to get your foot in the door in a
very competitive niche right away so that’s it guys I hope you enjoyed this

  1. Hello! I am new to selling on amazon and I was wondering what you mean by differentiating your product, and how I can avoid getting my product getting thrown in a big pile of cases. And I am starting with 50 cases because I didn’t want to take a huge risk. Any other tips for me in particular would definitely mean a lot! Thank you!
