I have been searching for an ideal first product for over a month. I have been using the free tools (Market Monk and Unicorn Smasher) in my research. In this period I have spent over 100 hours of solid product search but I have not found a product that ticks all the boxes. What are you guys using for your product search, the reason I ask this is that i have found some really good products (I wish all of them the best of luck with it), is there a special tool that you guys use that can help? Any advice will be very much appreciated.
how long did it take you to find your first product. The reason I am asking is that after investing over 100 hours of solid search, I did not come across anything similar to your product and others who posted. I am getting a bit discouraged. Do you and others have any advice?
I’d say around a week, I motivated myself going through lots of duds knowing there’s products still out there that can work. Maybe look outside of the “required list” a little. My current product is fragile, but since most others disregard it as a good product, there’s little competition
Don’t do oversize! Those FBA fees get crazy, the limit your inventory allowed, and they make you ship to split locations. Fragile, a little more reviews that perfect, because you can give 100 away instead of 50. Little lower selling price. I thought I found the perfect product and turns out it was too competitive after Christmas was over they were all on sale so that I would only make $1 per sale.
