Welcome Smart Passive Income Listeners!
Thank you for stopping by the Online Selling Experiment website.
It was a great honor to be a guest on the SPI podcast, and I enjoyed being able to share with you my journey from quitting my job as an accountant to making a full time income selling products online. I’ve been a fan of Pat’s website and podcasts for a long time, and was even able to get a picture with him from a meetup he hosted in Minneapolis:
If making some additional income selling physical products online is something you’d like to explore, then you are in the right place. I’ve set this page up just for that purpose.
In the podcast, we discussed a contest. That podcast was many years ago, but we still have a challenge for you to take on.
We’ve been tweaking the challenge based on the results people see with the goal of pushing people to a goal that will make them work hard but is still attainable for nearly anyone who wants to take on the challenge – even if you don’t have any money to invest.
With that in mind, the current challenge (as of June 2021) is to sell $250 in your first 30 days. We have many people who sell well beyond that, including some that sell over a grand. Just to be clear, thats in the first 30 days – the goal is to get everyone who wants to well over a grand a month!
This challenge is a great way to get some early momentum when selling online.
Financial Results Posts
As I mentioned on the podcast, I posted my financial results monthly for almost the first 2 years selling on Amazon full-time. You can read through my first results post HERE, which you can compare to my results from 15 months later HERE.

Tools/Supplies You Need to Sell on Amazon
When you are just getting started selling on Amazon, there aren’t too many tools that you will need right away. The main things are boxes, tape, and printer for shipping labels. That’s about all you need right away. When initially getting started, money is generally better spent on inventory as opposed to tools and supplies. As you grow your sales and your business there’s definitely some things that will help to make your life easier. You can see all of the supplies and tools I use to sell on Amazon on my resources page.
