3 Ways to Make Your Amazon FBA Business More Valuable

Ready to sell your Amazon FBA business but worried it’s not going to attract enough buyers? 

We’re sure you did a great job launching, building and scaling your business. But when it comes time to sell, there are always a couple of extra things we can all do to bump up our business’s value.

In this article, we’ll be taking a look at the 3 things you can do to make your Amazon FBA business more valuable.

Automate Your Business

Is your FBA business fully automated? 

If it isn’t, it means it can’t function without you being there.

And when this happens, it probably means you’re still working too many hours.

The consequence of this is that no buyer on the planet is looking to take over a full-time job whenever they purchase an Amazon FBA business. Instead, they want an automated business. It will save them time, and it will increase its valuation.

Here are some things you might not have realized can be automated: 
  • Automate your email marketing 
  • Automate your Amazon PPC ads
  • Automate your shipping logistics 
  • Automate your Amazon reviews 
  • Automate your stock reimbursement 
  • Automate your inventory! (Important) 
Fine Tune Your Inventory Management 

We touched on inventory above just now, but let’s elaborate. 

It’s really important that you use a system to manage not just your order and shipments, but also your FBA suppliers. Doing so will allow you to better organize your finances, and make your business more saleable in the eyes of potential buyers.

After all – who wants to buy a business that’s in chaos financially?

It’s also a good idea to start by assessing your data. How much inventory do you usually carry? Too much? Or not enough?

Balance is key because you don’t want to have an overstock or an understock. 

To help with inventory management, and to prevent problems from building up, we highly recommend that you use inventory management software. 

Diversify Your Product Offerings 

If there’s one lesson we’ve learned over the years that needs to be applied above all others to Amazon sellers it’s “diversify, diversify, diversify.”


Because having just one (or even two) successful products just isn’t a sustainable approach over the long term. It makes you super vulnerable to new competitors coming along and ousting you, and it also means you’re at the mercy of the market. 

What if people simply stop buying that product?

Diversifying reduces risk and it helps to improve your bottom line.

It also makes your business more valuable in the eyes of buyers. 

We also suggest you diversify your supply line for those times when unexpected issues arise that prevent you from shipping your products in time and satisfying orders.

Final Thoughts 

The great thing about putting your Amazon FBA business up for sale is that people want to buy FBA businesses. The market is booming, buyers are out there – you just need to make sure you get the price you deserve.

To that end, it’s well worth finishing the job properly by partnering up with a broker who can help you get your sale over the line, as well as ensure you get the right price.
