Pay Attention to Price Points

One area that really trips up new Amazon sellers is failing to pay attention to the prospective product’s price point. You’ve really got to figure out if it will be worth it for you to proceed with a product. Ask yourself, can I improve the product or drive sales enough to make this worth it? On this episode of The Amazing Seller, you’ll hear from Scott and Chris as they walk through several examples of products where they would proceed or decline to proceed because of the way they see the price point playing out. Don’t go through this process blind! Take the time to hear from Scott and Chris and hear how they approach this product research phase, you won’t regret it!

Low Reviews Can Be Helpful

As you proceed through your first phase of product research, make sure to note the number of reviews and also the quality of the reviews. If the product is getting a lot of sales and they have had a lot of average to below average quality reviews, that might be the right product to continue your research on. On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Scott and Chris explain how you can use a product that has poor quality reviews to swoop in, address the concerns raised in those reviews and end up with a product that takes off. Keep in mind that every product that you research that looks like this scenario isn’t going to be a “lock,” don’t get your hopes up, make sure to follow the advice and the process that Scott and Chris lay out.
