Search Title ONLY – Merch Research Update

Q4 is here and so are the Holidays! If you have been in Merch by Amazon for even a few weeks and have been doing your research (like you should!), then you know just how annoying research can be around the holidays. It is annoying because EVERYONE is trying to capitalize on the extra traffic and holidays by stuffing their bullet points and description with keywords. Today, we fixed that problem and added Title Only Search to Merch Informer! Search In Title Only Since Christmas is coming up, let’s use that as an example. Say you want to search for “Dabbing Santa” and see what kind of competition you would be facing (which is a LOT in this niche). However, […]

How to Check PopSocket Trademarks BEFORE You Upload

When it comes to checking Trademarks for wording used in our designs and listings, we all know how much of a pain it can be. The USPTO website looks and acts like it is out of the early 90s, and if you have not spent the time to learn your way around, it can seem pretty daunting. That being said, it is a MUST that you understand trademark in this industry, or you simply will not last long. On the TESS website, most everyone is familiar with the basic word mark search, but if you want to SPECIFICALLY search for trademarks in the 009 category (this is for PopSockets), you will want to use the free form search. Specifically this […]

Merch Informer Book Hunter Chrome Extension UPDATE

Earlier this month we released our new Chrome extension which is part of the Merch Informer family of research products: The Merch Informer Book Hunter. This has already been a great source of easy, unsaturated niches that you can use on Merch by Amazon by using SOCIAL proof! The entire idea was to find ideas off of Amazon (on social media instead), and get some social proof that these niches have customer demand. Bringing fresh ideas onto the Merch platform with your own designs in niches which demand is such an easy way to make sales. If you are unique (but there is demand in those niches), this makes your products stick out, and leads to sales! While this was […]

Announcing Merch Informer Book Hunter

Supply and Demand. That is, in a nutshell, what Merch by Amazon is all about. It does not matter if you are an artist, a business person, a stay at home mom, or just trying to scrap together a few hundred dollars a month with Merch. Your job is to find demand (or create it), and then offer the supply. Doing anything else, is a complete waste of time. A few weeks ago, Merch Informer released a new tool for doing research OFF of Amazon to find demand. We call is the Merch Informer Book Hunter. If you can find demand off of Amazon, and offer the Amazon customers something new and fresh in the same niche (that might be […]

Keyword Spinner Added To The Merch Informer Lister

SEO or “search engine optimization” is one of the most important aspects of Merch by Amazon that often gets overlooked. After all, Amazon is just a big search engine that happens to sell a bunch of awesome products. Making sure you get all the relevant keywords into your listing and getting your product in front of potential buyers is the name of the game. This often becomes difficult when you have more than just a few uploads each day, and USUALLY the first thing to go out the door are your titles and bullet points (quality wise). We copy and paste the same bullets over and over in an attempt to just SAVE TIME! Saving time and having more products […]
