The Million Dollar Case Study: Europe – Session #5: Product Design Specification

by Kym Ellis @ Jungle Scout: Amazon Product Research Made Easy

This session was a little different to usual as Greg and myself were both in the same room, in Budapest. The whole Jungle Scout team spend a week exploring the city and working together so we figured we would sit side by side for the webinar. A lot of you had been asking how we decided on the product specification, so I took this opportunity to show exactly how I landed on the final product design specification for my sleeping bags and how you can apply the same tactics to do the same for any product idea under the sun. This is like extended product research, specifically for your final product idea. It's a super important part of the decision making process, because it will determine how your final manufactured product will stand out against the competitors. Check out the replay and slides below… Replay video coming in: Here's the slides:   How To “Design” A Product To Sell On Amazon OK, so as a private label seller, I am not reinventing the wheel or creating a new product idea. In fact, I am selling an existing product with existing demand. But that doesn't mean that there is no work ... Read More

The Million Dollar Case Study: Europe – Session #2: Advanced Product Research

by Kym Ellis @ Jungle Scout: Amazon Product Research Made Easy

Our favorite time of the week is Million Dollar Case Study time – and this week we kicked off the second session of the Europe edition of the case study, with some advanced product research tactics to find private label product ideas. Phew! Since last week it's been a whirlwind of doing my product research that I had some great guidance from Greg for in last week's session, as well as putting together all of my thoughts to share with you guys. I spent about three hours poring over the Web App and browsing Amazon.co.uk to find a list of product ideas (which I will share with you shortly). The main thing that stood out to me was that, although it is time consuming, it's definitely something you can do alongside your full-time job or other commitments. If you just dedicate 1 hour a day every other day, you will have a list of up to 50 ideas within a week! How cool is that? In this weeks session we cover: How to critically assess your list of product ideas and narrow them down to a shorter list of viable products Advanced product research tactics to define market depth and ...

The Million Dollar Case Study: Europe – Session #4: Find A Manufacturer In China

by Kym Ellis @ Jungle Scout: Amazon Product Research Made Easy

Welcome back to the Million Dollar Case Study Europe edition. This week, after some pesky technical difficulties (happens to the best of us), we kicked off a super insightful session with guest expert Manuel Becvar. Welcome to Manuel Becvar We invited Manuel to join us in this session as I am right in the middle of finding a suitable manufacturer for my product idea (sleeping bags). As a new seller, there were many questions I had about this process, so we decided to run this session as an interview with me asking Manuel questions, and with Greg asking further questions and taking questions from you, the audience. With over 17 years experience in retail and 10 years based in Hong Kong, Manuel is an expert in the manufacturing industry, and he's an Amazon seller too. Greg mentions in his introductions that he believes Manuel is one of the leading experts in this space, so I was really excited to get the opportunity ask my questions. Hope you enjoyed the interview if you tuned in, but if not, you can catch up right here… The full replay: The slides:   Finding A Manufacturer As An FBA Seller As always, I am going ... Read More

Amazon Update: Headline Search Ads Now Available In Seller Central!

by Greg Mercer @ Jungle Scout: Amazon Product Research Made Easy

I’m a frequent traveler, and pride myself on efficiency in getting through security lines. But inevitably there are more people who just zoom past with some fancy security clearance that they’ve purchased. What the heck? Money talks, I guess. And that’s the same dynamic that we’re starting to see with Amazon products: sellers now have more options to purchase ads to get their product in front of relevant customers. Amazon has made big strides in improving the targeting options and reporting, and most recently a big one: Headline Ads are now available in Seller Central! Perhaps you've seen this recently when you logged in to Seller Central: You can access the Campaign Builder here: Headline Ads previously was reserved for Amazon Vendors (people who sold their products directly to Amazon at wholesale prices) through the Amazon Marketing Services (AMS) platform.  Or, people like me who took advantage of a loophole to get access to the AMS platform by kind of becoming an Amazon Vendor.
