When an entrepreneur decides to move into the industry of selling their very own private labeled products, the obvious choice for a platform to move those products is going to be Amazon. Hands down, every time Amazon is the monster marketplace with the ability to reach millions of online consumers. Now, just having your products listed on Amazon won’t guarantee their (and your!) success. You can’t just post a product with a description and sit back while the profits roll in. Nothing worth having comes easy, so you have to put in constant work to cultivate your sales. However, there are tools and apps available to you that can help you boost your private label brand revenue and we’ve compiled a list of apps for Amazon sellers that will be the most useful to you.
Have you ever noticed when shopping Amazon that a price for a certain product can go up and down? Even more than once in a day? This all comes down to the competitiveness of online retail. Thanks to the internet, everything happens quickly now. We get our information and news almost the second it happens, so it’s easy to assume that the market fluctuations can rise and fall so quickly as well. With Feedvisor, the guesswork is taken care of for you. With the speed of the internet and the information available, the app can automatically adjust your pricing for you to increase your profit anywhere from 15 to 40%.
We’re sure you’ve heard about the recent Supreme Court ruling that states can now force online retailers to collect sales tax. If you’ve been selling your private labeled products via a brick and mortar store, this probably won’t affect you much as you’ve already been collecting your state’s respective sales tax. However, to cover yourself and make sure all your bases are covered legally, TaxJar has the ability to automatically collect the taxes when orders are placed while also filing the necessary paperwork and returns for you. This will ensure you follow all your tax obligations without the hassle and headache usually associated with collecting and reporting taxes.
Your brand isn’t just the name you put on your products to differentiate them from your competitors. It’s ok if you would prefer to focus your attentions to development and creation of the products rather than the creative aspect of cultivating your brand. That’s what 180Commerce can do for you so you can make product development your number one priority. They can handle everything from improving brand perception, advertising, inventory, and customer service, all of which are imperative to your success.
One aspect of selling private labeled products that hasn’t really been covered is managing inventory and handling shipping. That’s where SolidCommerce comes in. As a multichannel order and inventory management software product, you can expand beyond Amazon and sell on other online retailers like eBay and Walmart without worrying about the extra effort it will take to fulfill those orders. They also have the ability to handle shipping through all major carriers and product repricing as well as inventory management and synchronizing your orders.
All of these apps for Amazon sellers have the ability to push your private label business above and beyond heights you never thought possible. At Private Label University, we offer training courses online and in person throughout the year, where you’ll not only learn about the tools of the trade, but you’ll also gain access to our international team of experts. If you’re dreaming of success, it’s right here.
