Product Research

Think JungleScout + Feedback Genius for Germany, Europe, Japan and everywhere else - the ONLY Amazon feedback follow up and searchable product database for ALL AMAZON COUNTRIES.

Amachete is a powerful and affordable web app and chrome extension that shows product sales, reviews and revenue for any product anywhere on Amazon.

Cheaper than Jungle Scout. Cheaper than Feedback Genius. More Amazon countries than either!

They even do VAT invoicing which saves European sellers a ton of effort. Get ultimate international tool now and get 25% OFF with Coupon Code: ALLSTARS

I didn’t use Jungle Scout to get started and honestly wish I did. Product research is almost TOO easy. Jungle Scout saves FBA sellers time (and money!!!) by automatically exporting BSRs, showing sales figures, tracking competitor review counts and and a ton of other great stuff when searching for private label Amazon opportunities.

And, there’s filters to find only products based on your private label criteria. Seriously, Jungle Scout automates most of the pain of product selection I struggled with as an Amazon seller.

And you can listen to Greg Mercer, the found of Jungle Scout and his process for product selection here in case you missed it.

Or, if you’re more interested in how Greg build 5 private label brands up to massive sales a month, think 6 figure revenues easy, check out our latest chat.

A free, powerful tool with a weird name, CamelCamelCamel allows you to review BSRs and product prices (including history) of any Amazon products in the past. It rocks for checking trends and tracking competitors.

I personally use Feedback Genius and recommend Feedback Genius for my Amazon autoresponder follow up sequence. It’s an incredibly easy to use and powerful tool to automatically get feedback and reviews from customers when they buy your products. I particularly like some of the variable tags and automation capabilities around sending response emails after customers leave positive feedback…hello 5 star reviews

Alibaba

– The undisputed king to connect with factories, trade companies and manufacturers around the world, Alibaba is where the world sources its products. There will be a podcast episode on this shortly so stay tuned..

Bank Accounts and Currency Transfers

Selling outside your home country and struggling to get a bank account and get paid by Amazon?

Want to save 2+% on ALL foreign Amazon payments and transfers? I am getting WAY more of the money I earn in Amazon Europe and Japan with World First, a virtual bank account that allows me to accept Euros, GBP, USD, Yen and much more. It is ideal for international ecommerce. And it saves you a ton. Amazon charges you 4% to transfer money to USD account (or vice versa) World First charges 2% (or less for larger sellers)! That is a big damn difference.

For a 100k a month seller, that is 2 grand difference every month – no strings. Check them out with this link to save a ton on Amazon’s fees big.

VAT Services + Translations

If you are selling in Europe and above the VAT thresholds that apply to each country, you NEED to pay VAT. It sucks. FBA Hero helps Amazon sellers with handling 100% of VAT filings and paperwork for only $147 a month per country needed. It’s a great offer and for listeners, use the following link and mention the podcast to get your first month free!

Oh, and guess what – they also do translations and review campaigns for all your products. It is great. Transition from selling in the US and move over to Europe seemlessly with help turning your listings into German, French, Spanish and Italian from experts who have been helping European sellers succeed.

Email Marketing

Holy shit this rocks. Just started with Active Campaign and it blows Mailchimp and AWeber out of water! Build out intensive ecommerce funnels, create customer tags, send sequences based off sales, on page actions and more. This is a really really cool and customizable marketing platform with built in CRM and I definitely recommend this if you are serious about off Amazon ecommerce success.

Mailchimp

Mailchimp is another great email marketing provider, though a bit less powerful than AWeber. They have autoresponders and work list management but have less powerful automation tools and segmenting than AWeber which make it harder for effective upsells. Either are great options for FBA sellers just getting into email marketing though and will do what you need.

Off Amazon Ecommerce

Honestly it’s an easy choice here when taking your FBA brand off Amazon. Shopify is the fastest, easiest and most effective shopping cart to get started for ecommerce sellers looking to scale and grow a business. Their free templates are awesome (I actually use a free theme on my own Shopify site and get complements all the time) and they take a lot of the hassle of building an ecommerce store out of the equation. Unless you’re building a massive site with loads of products, I’d personally stick with Shopify as they are pretty simple yet plenty powerful (I’ve used BigCommerce before and results are night and day apart and support has been great).

JoeLister lets you setup and sell automatically on Ebay, no extra steps. It auto-lists and manages your listings and pushes Ebay sales fulfillment through FBA. That is a completely automated extra channel to add to your business with a tiny price tag. 2-3 sales a month and you make youre money back and your brand appear bigger.

Accounting

I used to do my own accounting and bookkeeping. I don’t now. But either way, you need to have the numbers to understand the ins and outs of your business. I personally use and like Xero as it is really easy get started, most accountants and bookkeepers are familiar with it, it is cheap and it is web based. Check them out today and for goodness sake outsource accounting and bookkeeping ASAP.
