While it may seem like a lifetime ago, Manny Coats debuted the CPR Method of performing product launches through targeted keyword research and marketing to climb to the top of the Amazon rankings for your product niche. A lot of things have changed in the last year, and so too has Amazon updated its Terms of Service and rules governing how sellers can operate on its platform. In episode 194 of the AMPM Podcast, host Manny Coats discusses this Cerebro-based keyword research method with Helium 10 Operations Manager Bradley Sutton that will help you identify which keywords are helping the most successful listings SELL PRODUCTS. Since the keyword research method has yet to be named, let’s call it Method X (I know, original). For a long time, Manny had suggested people go to either Magnet or Cerebro from Helium 10 to discover new keywords and spy on competitor keywords, respectively. The tried-and-true way was to target keywords based on their sheer search volume on Amazon by customers. Now the paradigm has shifted, as data from Cerebro has revealed a way of finding keywords that SELL rather than just by search volume. In our experience, we have found keywords that didn’t have tremendous search volume overall but were converting. Through a new feature available in Cerebro, users can search a keyword and find the top 30 products ranking for that keyword, and then compare up to 10 ASINs in detail to discover other similarities and strategies among the top competitors for a specific niche.

Whether or not your intention was to sell your Amazon business from the start, a profitable exit is always on the table for many sellers.

Two valuable nuggets of information coming to you today from Manny Coats on using stock photos for Amazon and sending out mailers to customers! Using high-quality professional product photography is quintessential to your product getting noticed and purchased on Amazon but being able to afford stock photos for Amazon can be a challenge for some new sellers. If your product also needs images for its packaging, that can incur additional costs. One major thing to be careful about when finding images on the Internet is to ensure it is not copyrighted so the legal owner doesn’t take legal action against you. Additionally, if you are looking for better ways to advertise to your customers, sending out a message to your customer base via mail (not email, but as a physical message in an envelope) is more personalized and on par with major retailers everywhere with a mailing list. NEED PROFESSIONAL PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY FOR YOUR AMAZON LISTING? CLICK HERE FOR MORE In episode 192 of the AMPM Podcast, host Manny Coats reveals some money-saving tips for getting high-quality, royalty-free stock photos for Amazon as well as advice on how to reach your target audiences with mailers. If you need to use stock imagery for edited lifestyle photography or product packaging, there are a few options out there. Of course, if websites like Shutterstock is out of your current price range per month, Unsplash.com offers many high-quality photos available to be used for your purposes for free under creative commons, meaning they can be used without paying the owner. A common misconception among new sellers is that just because it says you can use it for free, there is no risk in using images from stock websites. Always be sure to read the fine print because some images will require special licenses to be used commercially for profit. Manny also discusses using physical postcards sent in the mail to your customers to thank them for their business and request a review via AMZ Print Mail. However, this method should be used with care in how it's worded to prevent you from violating Amazon Terms of Service.

On Podcast EP 191, host Manny Coats talks about how the recent Amazon TOS relate to reviews and even answers a few personal questions! A few weeks ago, we talked about sneaky ways to gain Amazon reviews that may get you banned so you know which tactics to AVOID. If you missed that episode, check it out here. Since then, a lot of you have asked for clarification on Amazon’s TOS surrounding reviews and email follow-up so you can gain reviews fast without getting your account banned. So what’s Amazon’s stance on reviews nowadays? “After an order is completed, Amazon automatically sends an email to buyers asking them to leave a review and provide feedback. Additionally, you are allowed to send 1 email per order to request a customer review.” If you send out more than 1 email to elicit a customer review, it may be time to reconsider your email follow up strategy and change it to be more compliant with the current verbiage in Amazon’s Customer review guidelines. “If you decide to ask a buyer to provide a customer review, you cannot ask only for a positive review, nor can you request reviews solely from buyers who have had a positive experience.” If you use tricky wording to segment your customers into reviews and customer feedback, it’s important to note that you’re blatantly violating Amazon’s TOS. You also cannot contact Amazon customers and request that they remove a review. Maybe you’re asking yourself, “but what if I solve their problem or send them a replacement following a negative review?” If you do so, you STILL cannot follow back up to ask them to change their review. The second half of the podcast was an opportunity to answer all your personal questions for Manny. Questions like: How many employees do you have? How tall are you? What events are you going to next? How many hours do you work per week? What do you do for fun? And more! Listen to the full episode above.

On this channel, we have featured many people who have already launched a product, but what about a new seller who is getting ready to launch a product? We talk to many sellers who have had success with their products, so for this episode, we wanted to change things up to concentrate on the experiences new sellers have before launching a product at all.

Getting Amazon reviews for your product is crucial to its success, but how you get them can possibly land you in hot water with Amazon. Recently, Amazon updated their Terms of Service regarding the acceptable ways of getting Amazon reviews on products. This update has eliminated the use of some old tried and true tactics sellers have used to get reviews either ahead of the product launch or in large quantities. Amazon is cracking down on the black hat methods of obtaining Amazon reviews, so it’s very important to know what will and will not fly with Amazon. Violation of Amazon’s TOS can certainly lead to getting banned from Amazon in addition to things like Withdrawing your selling privileges for a time Removing all of your product reviews that were obtained illegitimately Permanently delisting your product Legal action against you by Amazon such as a lawsuit In episode 188 of the AMPM Podcast, host Manny Coats discusses the current Amazon Terms of Service regarding Amazon reviews for products and how to avoid getting into trouble. Following Amazon’s rules is your best bet to not being banned or enduring other punishments, so getting to know what you can and cannot do is paramount to obtaining Amazon reviews the right way.

How much is your Amazon packaging really costing you? Do you have to pay extra per unit when you ship and store your products due to Amazon packaging size stipulations? Your product’s dimensions and weight can have a significant impact on your cost per unit, but there are ways to help you save money when evaluating your product’s size class with Amazon. Many new sellers may not be aware that if your product crosses over from being a Standard sized item to being Oversized, the cost can rise. For example, going from a Large Standard sized box to a Small Oversize box (over 18 inches in length, width, height, or a combination of all three) can carry a hefty jump in cost per unit. Oversized products typically cost more to store in Amazon’s warehouses via the FBA system, so trying to stay under the threshold if at all possible can save you large sums of money each year. FIND OUT HOW PROFITABLE YOUR PACKAGE SIZE CAN BE WITH THE AMAZON PROFITABILITY CALCULATOR Also, Manny discusses how the weight of products can have a great influence on the cost to ship from your supplier to the warehouse. If your product is made in China and has to travel all the way to the United States, a unit’s weight will determine not only your cost to transport but also eligibility for air transport. In episode 187 of the AMPM Podcast, host Manny Coats will share his thoughts on how Amazon packaging size and weight play a crucial role in your cost per unit in shipping as well as storage and how sellers might be able to cut their costs with such large things. Additionally, Manny introduces Profitability Calculator, a new way to check how profitable a particular product might be given factors like Amazon packaging size or weight within a few seconds. He uses it during this podcast to calculate the FBA fees associated with the example products dimensions and weight to get a reasonably accurate estimate on how much it would be to store the item in an Amazon fulfillment center.

In the wake of the recent Amazon search results controversy, we have decided to address another topic of discussion that’s drawing confusion from sellers: Amazon keyword indexing. For those who are new to selling on Amazon, indexing keywords refer to whether or not the Amazon keyword search algorithm is associating your product’s ASIN with your targeted keywords. Whether or not your ASIN is being indexed for your desired keywords and phrases determines the discoverability of your product to customers using relevant search terms related to your product.

The Amazon keyword search algorithm has turned into more of an “Amazon search shuffle,” providing sellers with different data across different locations and browsers. There seems to be something fishy going on with Amazon keyword search results, and we aim to find out what’s going on! *This article appears on Helium 10, but felt it was so important that we needed to share it with you all as well! Lately, we’ve been getting questions about discrepancies in Amazon keyword search data from some of our users through tools like Keyword Tracker by Helium 10. Users will claim that their keyword ranking results will vary wildly for some critical terms at different time intervals. Sometimes a seller will be ranked fairly high, and then at other times not appear in the keyword search results at all. CHECK OUT KEYWORD TRACKER AND THE HELIUM 10 TOOL SUITE Helium 10 derives its data estimations from detectable Amazon trends and other factors, so the variance in search results are coming from Amazon, not any tool bug. The only thing we aren’t certain of is WHY it’s happening, but we have a few educated guesses. In episode 185 of the AMPM Podcast, host Manny Coats has a discussion with Helium 10 team members Bradley Sutton (Operations Manager) and Bojan Gajic (Chief Technology Officer and Head of Engineering) about this Amazon keyword search data debacle. The Amazon Search Shuffle The Helium 10 team has coined the phrase, “Amazon Search Shuffle” to describe the phenomenon (just don’t use the abbreviation, it sounds silly). The shuffling started around mid-August 2018 when we noticed the difference in data that would happen within different locations and different browsers. The data inconsistency even occurs in the same browser or location, but a just different time of the day. It’s as if there were two separate catalogs or realities that Amazon was toggling between back and forth. The last time something like this happened was in November 2017 for a few days. There were rumors behind the scenes at the time that Amazon was testing a new catalog or prematurely pushed to production an algorithm update. Whatever the case, they put everything back after a few days, and the data stabilized again. The difference this time is that now these variations have been happening for a month now. Bojan explains in detail his experience with these changes to Amazon’s algorithm and offers his insight into what the future may hold for Amazon keyword search data consistency. Bradley points out how anyone can see the results that we are witnessing by trying to see the same data across different locations and browsers. How Helium 10 Is Navigating the Issue Helium 10 would like to emphasize that if you are using our tools and are experiencing wildly varied search results, it has to do the algorithmic changes Amazon is currently making and not an error with our system. We have also been able to normalize the results for many users, but until the issue is resolved on Amazon's side, you will still see this search result variance on some ASINs. One reason that you can see this variance in our tool and not others is that if you have the boost feature turned on, Helium 10 is going out and checking your rank every hour as opposed to other tools that might only check once a day or every few days. For example, users that utilize our Boost feature (which checks rank every hour, whereas other tools only check once a day or every other day) on Keyword Tracker may notice the data differences more readily because of the more frequent updates. We hope that like last year, things will normalize soon so that we do not see the wild search result fluctuations, that can affect your bottom line.

Could you be getting inaccurate Amazon sales estimates with the 999 Amazon shopping cart trick? Some may remember this old inventory hack in the early days of the AMPM Podcast to see how much inventory your competitors had left for their products. The basic idea was that you visit a listing and add the product to your Amazon shopping cart. You also set the item quantity to 999, and if the seller did not possess that many items in his or her inventory, Amazon would alert you and tell you how many units of the product were left. You would effectively spy on a competitor and find out how much was left in their stock for that particular ASIN. While it may seem like a clever Amazon competitor analysis idea, this spying activity may actually bring you more trouble than it’s worth. On this episode of the AMPM Podcast, host Manny Coats talks about a few things centered around the famous 999 Amazon shopping cart trick, including: Guillermo’s trip to The War Room conference with Ryan Deiss and Roland Frasier from Digital Marketer in Las Vegas, Nevada What the 999 Amazon shopping cart trick is and how it works How accurate is calculating Amazon sales volume estimation with this Amazon shopping cart trick Is the trick better than using Amazon sales estimation software like Xray by Helium 10? The flaws in using the 999 Amazon shopping cart trick only to calculate accurate sales volumes on Amazon products The variables that can impact the accuracy of using the 999 Amazon inventory trick The Helium 10 alternative to using the 999 Amazon inventory checker Enjoy the episode? If you found this episode helpful, be sure to check out our previous episodes for more insight into being a successful Amazon FBA Seller!

Can Amazon A/B testing your images prevent wasted time and money before the product launch? In today’s episode of the AMPM Podcast, Manny discusses the importance of getting your primary image right to increase conversions for your listing and prompt Amazon to feature your product marketing more often. However, how do you know the image you attached to your product listing is a good one? Amazon A/B testing, of course! While Amazon Central does allow sellers to split test images, it must be done while the product listing is live. This situation is not ideal since you are potentially wasting money on an ineffective image that is all over your marketing material. Fortunately, there is a way to split test your product thumbnail before you invest a lot of money on the product launch and risk low conversions. Pickfu provides a service that lets you perform Amazon split testing on images for a nominal fee to pollsters. Additionally, Pickfu provides analytics on the results and reveals critical data on the demographics of the participants and what they chose. This data is invaluable when choosing an image to use that appeals to your target audience both on your listing and your marketing efforts. Check out the Amazon A/B testing plans for Pickfu to gain valuable input from real people Enjoy the episode? If you found this episode helpful, be sure to check out our previous episodes for more insight into being a successful Amazon FBA Seller!

In today’s podcast episode, Manny discusses the importance of optimizing your Amazon image stack by adding promotional Amazon product videos into the mix! After taking some time off to concentrate on some big projects, Manny Coats is back for another informative episode of the AMPM Podcast! Over the last few months, Manny has spent his time building up Helium 10 and traveling out of the country to gain better knowledge on the state of selling on Amazon today. Manny mentions his recent trip to a seller event in Amsterdam and visiting one of the world’s largest underground wine cellars in his travels. In this episode of the AMPM Podcast, Manny mentions the fact that sellers who have registered their brands with Amazon are able to add Amazon product videos to their listing image stacks. Up until now, a select few businesses who had undergone brand registry were allowed to upload these Amazon product videos to their listings in beta form. Now Amazon is allowing any seller with Brand Registry to upload promotional videos to their listings. Haven’t registered your brand with Amazon yet? Now is the time! Also, be sure that you have properly trademarked your brand to protect you from hijackers. Don't miss out on the opportunity to add promotional Amazon product videos to listing pages and gain an edge over your competitors!

Making all the right moves from the very beginning can mean all the difference between a successful Amazon seller and a flop. While a rare occurrence, new sellers have been known to sweep in and totally dominate their niches. However, achieving this feat never comes easy and can only be done by choosing a solid product to source and employing a winning strategy on Amazon. In episode 178 of the AMPM Podcast, host Manny Coats interviews Amazon seller Janine Hong, a relative newcomer to the Amazon world that has absolutely crushed it by using a unique Amazon sponsored ad strategy and leveraging the power of the Helium 10 tools suite. She has advocated the significant role that Helium 10 has played in her growth as an Amazon business owner. During 2017, she was able to earn over $400,000 and is positioned to do around $2 million by the end of 2018. In using Helium 10 tools like Magnet, Cerebro, Scribbles, and others, Janine has increased her conversion rate from low teens to 27% and 30% on two of her main products. Additionally, she runs a terrific PPC campaign for her storefront, which is one of the most significant factors to maintaining her #1 position in her niche. Besides taking advantage of Helium 10 tools, she has created her own PPC optimization strategy known as the “Stampede Method” that helps her to blow away her competition. This strategy allows her only to have to spend about 30 minutes a week adjusting her Amazon sponsored ads. Check out our YouTube channel for more video podcasts.

Using more than one Amazon keyword tool to get an exact phrase keyword list is a strategic way to launch a product correctly. Building a strong keyword list through a powerful Amazon keyword tool is absolutely essential, especially in the beginning stages of your Amazon selling journey. Combining software can help sellers achieve more goals during their product research. Magnet is a general Amazon keyword tool that uses a seed word to generate exact phrase search term estimations for a listing. Cerebro is a reverse ASIN Amazon keyword tool that finds all the keywords related to a specific product. Often sellers use one or the other in their bid to find the ultimate keyword for their product listings. By using both in tandem with one another, sellers can achieve multiple goals, so sellers can launch faster and in the right way. In episode 177 of the AMPM Podcast, host Manny Coats demonstrates how sellers can incorporate Magnet and Cerebro to create a useful and narrowed keyword list, so they can enter the Amazon marketplace with a page one ranking!

Making product launch mistakes can be detrimental to the success of your listings - learn what NOT to do! Product launch mistakes can plague a listing from the very beginning, and many sellers don't realize they are doing it wrong! Sellers sometimes judge the success of product launches on their own experience without factoring in the role of personal error in the process. The general consensus of the Amazon selling community is a testament to how product launches fare. If or when product launches don't work, sellers need to evaluate how they introduce their products in the Amazon marketplace and utilize the elements that factor into a marketing and launching the product.

As more Amazon sellers join the grand e-commerce landscape, it becomes increasingly more difficult to find private label product ideas that are not overly saturated or marginally profitable. Being first to market with any new and exciting product seems to be a matter of luck more than conscience choosing of products to source—or is it? Searching Amazon for your next best-selling product might seem like a good idea, but in reality, it can be a surefire way to retread old ground. Finding alternative outlets from which to discover private label product ideas is more crucial than ever due to the ever-increasing number of private labels springing up on Amazon. However, there are places online and offline to find private label product ideas that are both unconventional and lucrative. Social platforms are increased in popularity and functionality and have also yielded many new creative ideas that speak to many different groups of people. In episode 166 of the AMPM Podcast, host Manny Coats speaks with high-earning Amazon private label seller Tim Jordan about the fallacy of using Amazon to find new private label product ideas. This misconception is due in part to the oversaturation of sellers offering the same products and the misleading data generated by Amazon. Even if a particular product is hot right now, the competition is fierce and is difficult to break into without significant investment. Additionally, Tim shares five places online that he has found to be very lucrative in discovering new private label product ideas that are low competition and have the opportunity to be first to market in many cases. Tim Jordan covers many of his coveted strategies and secrets to find private label products ideas, including the following: 00:52 Introduction to Tim Jordan 03:14 Looking to the Future of Private Label 04:39 Biggest Mistake: Sellers Using Amazon to Find New Private Label Products to Sell 06:12 Don’t Trust Amazon’s Data on an Unknown Product’s Viability 08:10 The Yeti Principle 13:45 Using Pinterest to Find Private Label Products to Sell 22:26 Using Kickstarter to Find Private Label Products to Sell 26:27 Using Etsy to Find Private Label Products to Sell 28:57 Using LifeHack Blogs to Find Private Label Products to Sell 33:16 Using Subscription Boxes to Find Private Label Products to Sell To watch the video version of this episode of the AM/PM Podcast, check out our YouTube channel below: Enjoy the episode? If you found this episode helpful, be sure to check out our previous episodes for more insight into being a successful Amazon FBA Seller!
