How To Sell On Amazon Step By Step – The Crawl Before You Walk Phase

Are you trying to figure out, or ever thought about what your life will be like in ten, twenty, or maybe, if you are young enough, forty years from now?

Have you thought about how stable your financial future will be?

Do you have any residual income streams in place to keep you making money without having to work really hard for it when you get old?

What you need to know before you go further is simple. There are many of us who have asked ourselves these questions. Some of us did absolutely nothing but twiddle our thumbs. Some of us figured, it is time to run out there and take action, without knowing what to do. The rest of us figured, we must put a plan that makes sense in place and follow it in order to create positive circumstances for our future.

To answer your questions, we are going to be learning How To Sell On Amazon Step By Step – The Crawl Before You Walk Phase. Many of us have heard the phrase “you have to crawl before you walk”. This happens to be a very accurate piece of information. It is very important for us to take our time, do our research, and perform a crawl phase as we become interested in new information, especially information concerning business.


Amazon is guided by four principles:

  • customer obsession rather than competitor focus
  • passion for invention
  • commitment to operational excellence
  • long-term thinking

Leadership Principles:

Customer Obsession

Leaders start with the customer and work backwards. They work vigorously to earn and keep customer trust. Although leaders pay attention to competitors, they obsess over customers.


Leaders are owners. They think long term and don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. They act on behalf of the entire company, beyond just their own team. They never say “that’s not my job.”

Invent and Simplify

Leaders expect and require innovation and invention from their teams and always find ways to simplify. They are externally aware, look for new ideas from everywhere, and are not limited by “not invented here.” As we do new things, we accept that we may be misunderstood for long periods of time.

Are Right, A Lot

Leaders are right a lot. They have strong business judgment and good instincts. They seek diverse perspectives and work to disconfirm their beliefs.

Learn and Be Curious

Leaders are never done learning and always seek to improve themselves. They are curious about new possibilities and act to explore them.

Hire and Develop the Best

Leaders raise the performance bar with every hire and promotion. They recognize exceptional talent, and willingly move them throughout the organization. Leaders develop leaders and take seriously their role in coaching others. We work on behalf of our people to invent mechanisms for development like Career Choice.

Insist on the Highest Standards

Leaders have relentlessly high standards—many people may think these standards are unreasonably high. Leaders are continually raising the bar and driving their teams to deliver high-quality products, services, and processes. Leaders ensure that defects do not get sent down the line and that problems are fixed so they stay fixed.

Think Big

Thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Leaders create and communicate a bold direction that inspires results. They think differently and look around corners for ways to serve customers.

Bias for Action

Speed matters in business. Many decisions and actions are reversible and do not need extensive study. We value calculated risk taking.


Accomplish more with less. Constraints breed resourcefulness, self-sufficiency and invention. There are no extra points for growing headcount, budget size, or fixed expense.

Earn Trust

Leaders listen attentively, speak candidly, and treat others respectfully. They are vocally self-critical, even when doing so is awkward or embarrassing. Leaders do not believe their or their team’s body odor smells of perfume. They benchmark themselves and their teams against the best.

Dive Deep

Leaders operate at all levels, stay connected to the details, audit frequently, and are skeptical when metrics and anecdote differ. No task is beneath them.

Have Backbone; Disagree and Commit

Leaders are obligated to respectfully challenge decisions when they disagree, even when doing so is uncomfortable or exhausting. Leaders have conviction and are tenacious. They do not compromise for the sake of social cohesion. Once a decision is determined, they commit wholly.

Deliver Results

Leaders focus on the key inputs for their business and deliver them with the right quality and in a timely fashion. Despite setbacks, they rise to the occasion and never settle.

In order to start your Crawl phase off, I recommend you start by using Advertising online, by way of Amazon Associates.

  1. Amazon is the world largest commerce store online and as an affiliate marketer or a noel seller, being able to get on this place is the goal to really have access to letting your product reach the world out there and getting the pay that you actually deserve by being a seller here.

  2. What a nice review of how to sell on Amazon, I like that you took the time to dive into the ethos and background of the company. 

    One could argue that Amazon is not really a shining beacon of morality when it comes to the way they conduct business but that doesn’t take away the good points you make about the mentality and mindset for people to adopt in order to be successful, I like that!

  4. Your review on How to sell on Amazon step by step stresses out perfectly that it’s important to think big, have a vision and think like a leader. 

    Amazon is not the best regarding commissions but they have such a well-thought structure and are easy to use so I think it’s a great opportunity for beginners in affiliate marketing. When you learn adding the links and it becomes your second nature, as you mention, you can apply to other affiliate programs with higher commissions. 

  5. Hello, 

    You can make a sale within 15 minutes or it could take months. As others have said, it really depends on what you are selling (and for us, sales is also seasonal) Even though I started selling in May we were able to still make some sales before our Christmas season. But it all has to do with processes that must be followed.
