THESE 3 USEFUL TIPS HELPED ME FIND PRODUCTS TO SELL ON AMAZON WITHIN A MONTH
When it comes to finding products to sell on Amazon, remember to:
- Choose products that are small and lightweight, and able to fit in a shoe box. This will lower your Amazon FBA fees, and will also be manufactured at lower price. Aim for the 0-2lb. range for your product, and make sure you check your dimensions before proceeding to sell.
- This is a problem that people run into the most. There are products on Amazon that are still patented, or patent pending, and people will run into infringement issues. PLEASE make sure you thoroughly search through patents to ensure you are not going to cause any issues. Use Google Patents, and USPTO to check. Use different types of broad keywords to cover more ground while you search.
- After finding your product, DO NOT order any inventory until you’ve done an in-depth analysis in the marketplace. Use a site like/similar to camelcamelcamel.com for example, and find out how consistence the sale prices are for your first page of listings. Another thing I always do when I have a potential product, is to use the Jungle Scout Web App Product Tracker to keep an eye on all of my competition’s similar products and track the sales for a couple days to a week. Calculate the numbers and make sure your fees, profits, and sales are worth the investment!

** = MORE EFFECTIVE, POWERFUL CRITERIA THAT I TEND TO USE MORE THAN OTHERS
**PRICE: Between $15-$50 is my range normally. It’s more likely someone would buy a product within that range rather someone buying a TV for $1000. This creates a comfortable buying zone for consumers, and also allows the One-Click feature withing Amazon to be more frequently used.
**SALES/REVENUE: I tend to use the sales criteria to verify demand rather than revenue, but to each is their own. Calculate whatever product can nail you a solid net profit. This usually is around 200-300 Minimum and No Maximum for lower priced items, and around 100 for the higher priced items.
**REVIEWS: You don’t want to have too much competition (especially for a new seller), so I would advise keeping your reviews at a maximum of 75 or so. Sometimes I go to 100. It would be hard to rank otherwise. (unless you’re a seasoned seller.)
**NO. OF SELLERS: This criteria basically tells me who’s a private label seller. I usually like to maintain a Min. Max. of 1 but this can be more useful being tweaked.
RATING: Having bad ratings usually means its a low quality product, and can be improved. That’s where you step in. I generally aim for anything from 3.5 Stars below that has the volume and capability to be profitable.
LISTING QUALITY: If someone has a bad listing, then they probably won’t get as many sales as their competitors (even better if there aren’t any competitors). This creates a space for you to be able to have a listing that can completely turn theirs into completely garbage (even if your listing is only a tad better). I tend to aim for a Max. of 75 and lower, depending on the categories you choose.
**I don’t actually use every single filter on the Jungle Scout Web App to find profitable products, so feel free to mix and match as you please.
