Is It Worth The Money?
The simple answer is YES! If you plan to start an Amazon business, or already have one, having the remarkable array of tools provided by Jungle Scout will put you way ahead of the millions of competitors all trying to get a share of the biggest marketplace in the world.
And the whole platform is designed by one of the most successful Amazon entrepreneurs in the world who has learnt the hard way how not to do it and then shared his knowledge by creating Jungle Scout.
If you try to do it without such tools you are guaranteed to lose far more in lost (or no) profit than the cost of joining the successful people.
Is it for me?
If you plan on going down the route of building a business on Amazon, the answer to this question is a resounding “yes”. Jungle Scout has to be the go to platform for everything you need to put you ahead of the competition.
However, you need to be aware that, in order to start an amazon business you will need a reasonable amount of cash to start with in order to buy inventory. Of course you can buy small amounts and re-invest the profits, which is how many successful Amazon businesses started out.
If you can’t commit much or any cash to it then maybe look at other ways to make money on line such as affiliate marketing.
In my opinion the “Suite” package should give most aspiring Amazon entrepreneurs all the tools they need. And, if you get to the stage where you need “Professional” you won’t be asking this question! But you can always upgrade.
But if you really just want to dip your toe in the water and find out whether Amazon FBA is for you, then “Basic” will get you through that stage.
See for Yourself
I could list all the different tools provided by Jungle Scout but I’d recommend you head over to their site and see for yourself.
And check out some of the introduction videos Greg has on the site, they’re inspirational without trying to promise instant riches if you “Buy Now!”.
