Product research can be a stumbling block for some Amazon sellers - especially for those who are just getting started. You might feel like you can’t find profitable products to sell or you may not know where to start when looking for product ideas and a niche. These stumbling block may have you ready to call it quits before you even begin. If you can’t get your head around the numbers or choose the right research tools, then this can also have you stuck before you even begin.

 

Today, we share the keys to product research for Amazon FBA, retail arbitrage, wholesale, and bundles. We reveal how we research the products we sell and how you can do it differently to find success. We share why your own experiences and knowledge are vital in finding your niche when looking for product ideas. We also highlight how to do keyword research with Merchant Words and reveal the numbers we look for in supply, demand, and margins.
