Tools We Use

With the every increasing popularity of selling physical goods on Amazon there are tools and apps being made and marketed on the internet that are intended to make your product research easier if not eliminate it altogether.

A few years ago such products were not needed as you simply went to Amazon looked in the top 100 of each category, picked out a product you wanted to sell and checked to make sure the rank and the number of reviews were beatable and you were off to list a new product. Well not anymore with the popularity of selling on Amazon constantly attracting more and more energetic sellers the competition is getting very competitive.

That is not the worst part. Time! Time is crucial. Take your time and chances are you will be left in the starting gate only to see the competition gain in popularity and those all so important review. Then it’s a whole new ball game as far as jumping over the product your looking at and winning the review game.

But, thankfully there is solutions in the form of tools to increase your productivity. After all a tool just to be a tool isn’t of much good except for it’s status as a shine new tool. If that new tool is just a shinny new 90 day wonder then it’s not worth buying even if all the hype says you need it. That’s where we come in!

We Do Reviews

We do reviews and use these new tools that claim to help the Amazon seller be more productive. We take a look at all the tools we know about, test that tool for usefulness and adaptability. Will it make your life as an Amazon seller more productive? Or is it a tool that you can live without? If we can’t make a decision on the product we will give the product to some of our “Sell Your Own Product On Amazon For Income And Lifestyle” course members and let them weight in on the decision.
