Welcome to Episode 8 of the Aspiring Entrepreneurs with Sophie Howard podcast!
As a beginner. Amazon feels like the most attractive online platform to start your online selling business. However, there are actually two ways you can sell on Amazon. The first of these is the classic Amazon FBA which requires you to sell physical goods. The second method is through KDP or Kindle Direct Publishing where you sell both E-books and paperback variants. Selling in either platform is a viable business model that can give huge revenues.
