How to find a profitable product to sell on Amazon?

It’s the question that each and every beginner seller ask themselves. So if you find yourself asking the same question, you are definitely not the only one.

First, what you can do, is to narrow your search down to a specific product category. This time, we are going to look into the Health and Household category.

Second, once you decide on the category, it’s time to go in-depth and see what potential products there are.

And although analyzing the data to find one profitable product to sell on Amazon might sound like a complicated process, it’s nothing to worry about. Helium 10, which is one of the most popular software tools among Amazon and Walmart sellers, has some tools to help you out and make this process as easy as possible.

This time, we will use Black Box, Xray, and Trendster to find 5 best-selling Amazon products to sell under Health and Household category.

What are the popular categories on Amazon in 2022?

The top 10 best-selling categories and items on Amazon in 2022 include cookware and cutlery, home office furniture, and personal care products.

Home & health, at the same time, is a billion-dollar industry and people are taking health more seriously today than ever. People transitioned more to home remedies and resolving simple health issues by themselves at home.

It is up to us to find out what are those existing problems that our target market is facing in order to design a product that will help them have more comfort, and actually enjoy the product.

There are a lot of opportunities to create a brand out of a specific health niche.

To find it out, one of the tools to use is Helium 10’s Black Box to refine our search for those trending products based on our criteria.

This time for product research, we will be using the same criteria we set for the last product strategy video that you can watch here:

Once you narrowed down the product ideas, the second step is to find out the product’s seasonality and demand all throughout the year.

For this, we will now use the Trendster tool from Helium 10.

How to use Trendster to find out a product’s search volume?

Trendster is one of the product research tools from Helium 10 that can pull out information about the product’s seasonality, sales trend, and the best-selling month. And it’s all based on Amazon data.

One of its features includes the Google trend graph which tells you the search trend over a year and you don’t have to open Google to search as the Trendster tool provides this data in one view.

You can check the movement of sales by customizing the data based on 24 hours, 1 day, 7 days, 30 days, 90 months, and all-time data.

The Trendster tool can make data-driven decisions and plan for future sales by interpreting the data from similar products that you want to offer.

To run Trendster research, we chose the product “incontinence underwear for women” and its 3 other variation ASINs.

The keywords that we look into are “underwear for bladder leak protection”, “incontinence underwear for women” and “incontinence underwear for women medium absorbency”.

Finally, this is the data that the Trendster tool is showing us:

In this graph, you will see the movement of its sales rank relative to the time and sales price. Sales ranking went higher when they lowered their sales price and continue to have a steady high velocity of sales after that price change.

Picture #1

Here in the picture #1, you can identify which specific date this ASIN got its best sales. And on the right side #2 in the picture, you can see the Google trend graph to show how seasonal this product is. And by the looks of it, people have been searching for this product all year round because the trend line does not go down rather it is steady.

Picture #2

We can therefore conclude that this product ASIN is not seasonal and will have consistent sales all throughout the year. And because of the past sales data that you can pull out from the Trendster tool, you can now plan the estimated sales and the number of stocks to order when you are going to launch the product on Amazon.

How to find product competitors using Xray?

We take our product research further by uncovering the performance of this product’s competitors. This time we are going to use the Xray tool from Helium 10.

We used the keyword phrase “incontinence underwear for women” and Xray was able to reveal that the search volume for this keyword is 24,685. And the average revenue from all the competitors is $63,232 and an average price of $28. Although this product happens to have an average of 4,329 reviews from all of its competitors.

After filtering out sponsored ASINs and irrelevant products from the results list, we were able to find out that 9 out of 20 sellers have lower than 500 review count.

By doing the right filters and removing irrelevant products, we are able to find out that there is still an opportunity to enter the market share. You are also able to see different designs of this product and some unique features that you can definitely take note of when designing your own product.

Final thoughts

During the process, we have found 5 trending profitable products in the Health and Household category based on the filters we used on Helium 10’s Black Box, backed by the past sales data and demand trend provided by the Trendster tool.
