The Jungle Scout Extensions and Jungle Scout Web App work very well together as they address different needs in the product research phase.
The Jungle Scout Extensions help users gather data from a specific page on Amazon, they are installed into your Google Chrome browser and operate inside of the Amazon.com website.
When you use the JSPro Extension, you will see a pop-up window similar to the below:
Or, if you are opening the JSLite extension, you should see something like this:
And the Web App helps users find products from a set of filters and also track those products over time to gather real data.
The Jungle Scout Web App
The web app is a software product that runs in the cloud on Jungle Scout's website (not Amazon.com) and it has several features that will help with your product research.
The Product Database is one of the features inside of the web app that allows you to filter through Amazon's catalog based on filters that are relevant to sellers (not consumers). The interface looks like this:
The Product Tracker is another part of the web app which allows users to track products in real time to monitor inventory, sales, best-sellers rank and other relevant information. The user interface for the product tracker looks like this:
The last main feature of the web app is the Niche Hunter which is used to find specific niches based on demand, competition, and other important criteria (**Please note this feature is only available for the Standard and Business plans). You'll find the Niche Hunter looks similar to this:
Both products work fabulously in unison! You can use the Product Database or Niche Hunter to find new ideas that fit your specific criteria being a category, price, estimated sales, demand, competition, etc.
Now you have some ideas and go to amazon.com run Jungle Scout Extension on the keywords you have chosen to identify specific products you are interested in. Then add those ASINs into the Product Tracker in the web app to be able to watch those products over a period of time.
Being able to track and watch those products will show you if the data is consistent or if it had a spike in best seller rank which would have altered the estimated sales/revenue. Consistency in the product means you can feel confident about your choice!
Now you have gone through the whole process of finding ideas/keywords in product database, running Jungle Scout Extension on those keywords on Amazon to identify multiple products, added those products to the product tracker, noticed 2 of them had big spikes so you discard those and are left with a few products to start moving forward and taking action on.
