011: Greg Mercer, Creator Of JungleScout, Explains How To Use Data To Increase Profits On Amazon Sales

A successful Amazon seller can go from zero to several hundred thousand dollars in monthly sales in just three years – and Greg Mercer is proof. Three years ago, he was a civil engineer with a desk job he didn’t like, and today he’s living the life of a digital nomad with his wife, traveling the globe and pulling in the profits.

To streamline his own research, Greg created JungleScout, designed to help Amazon sellers find the data they need to increase their profits. This SaaS company is a fantastic example of finding a market that needs to be served and making it profitable – and Greg is still selling multiple products on Amazon, as well.

We got Greg to explain how he uses his tool – and how you can use it to break into this amazingly lucrative market. If you’ve been waiting for the right moment to launch your Amazon business, that time is now, so I’ll see you on the Inside!
