Amazon Product Tools & How they work

In surveys, Amazon FBA sellers say that product research is the most time-consuming – and most frustrating – aspect of the selling process. These days there are a number of different research tools available to sellers and, here, I’d put together a guide to the most popular ones.

Jungle Scout

The ever popular Jungle Scout is a firm favourite among Amazon sellers.  Available as a web app or Chrome extension, Jungle Scout claims to take the guesswork out of product research in order to minimize risk and maximize profit.

AMZ Scout

Amz Scout is known as one of the most reliable and accurate product research tools on the market.  With a tagline of ‘The Smart Choice For Making Smart Decisions,’ Amz Scout is a comprehensive and competitive way of finding products and keeping track of sales.  Available as a free 7 day trial, Amz Scout comes in three different packages to suit all budgets and requirements. 

AMZ Base

Amz Base is a great tool to help sellers to quickly search and identify the right products to sell on Amazon and, one of the best things about it is that it’s free!  Sellers can quickly and easily use the tool to find descriptions and ASIN numbers of products on Amazon as well as calculating FBA fees.

Google Keyword Planner

The Google Keyword Planner helps sellers to reach the right customer using the right keywords.  The Google Keyword Planner is free to use and allows sellers to find new keyword inspiration for their search network campaigns to find relevant product and target relevant customers.

Amazon Best Sellers

Amazon Best sellers is an extremely useful way of quickly getting an idea of the kind of products which sell well on Amazon.  Categorised by product genre for easy filtering and searching, the page is great for those who do not yet know what they want to sell on Amazon. One of my favorite tools.

Ebay

The original online auction site, Ebay continues to go from strength to strength and is an essential source for FBA sellers. I have met Amazon sellers who buy on Ebay and resell on Amazon. 

Google Trends

Google Trends is a comprehensive overview of the topics that the world is talking about at any given time.  A quick glance at the site allows users to check out popular stories and websites with clearly marked statistics of popularity.  The site also offers a category search to allow sellers to identify relevant topics which may relate to their business. I have used Google trends to try to predict what will become popular in the future. It’s sort of like a scientific crystal ball

One you find you the righ product(s) to promote , the next step is to find your supplier in China via Alibaba, via Ebay sellers, or even buying closeouts at Walmart, Sears.Etc.
