2. Why Sell Digital Cameras?

If you found a product you could resell with a sell rate between 77% and 100%, would you have second thoughts? I highly doubt it! This is how useful our Market Research Lab is! It helps us determine which niches are potentially profitable. Below, the key factors to consider when choosing your niche are applied to digital cameras.

  • Solid Average Selling Price

Depending on the model and make of the digital camera you are listing, you certainly have room for profit! Just remember that for best profits you should purchase your products via wholesale or in bulk. That's the beauty of wholesale—the more you buy, the lower your unit cost goes. Be sure to set your margins to at least 510% after all listing fees have been deducted.

  • Low Competition

All three cameras shown above have low competition. If you're wondering why a low-competition market is a factor to consider when selling online, let me tell you this: Products found in a low-competition market tend to sell better, and that means you get to sell more! And we all know if you sell more, you also get to earn more $$$.

  • General Demand

You can't just sell a product with a solid average price in a low-competition market to make it online, you also need to make sure that your product is in demand.

A bit of research should tell you if the product has enough potential buyers. Are buyers actively in search of it? This is where keyword research comes in. If you have the right set of keywords, then Google and online marketplaces like eBay and Amazon will definitely drive traffic to your listing and/or store.

3. Top Keywords

To help us determine the right set of keywords to use for our listings, we refer to our very own AffiloTools Keyword Research tool. Below are some of the top-ranking keywords for digital cameras:


Keyword Research

Right at the top of the list is Canon with 246,000 searches, which indicates that many shoppers are looking for Canon digital cameras and products. That means you may want to consider listing some in your stores. Keyword research does not just show you the correct keywords to use for your listing, but can ultimately guide you in figuring out which brands, makes or accessories to stock and sell.

4. Bonus Tips

Photographers, both hobbyists and professionals, are always keen on getting the latest accessories for their cameras. You may opt to offer a bundled package consisting of a digital camera, lenses, a camera bag and a tripod, or you can offer certain lenses at a discounted price for specific digital camera purchases. Bundled packages and special discounts are a wonderful way of enticing shoppers and bringing in more sales!
