If you sell physical products on Amazon, then Black Friday can be one of your best days of selling. If you approach this day as a consumer, you are looking at the ads and standing in line to buy gifts for Christmas. If you are a reseller, you are researching the ads and purchasing items that will earn you a profit on Amazon.
In order to get the most out of Black Friday, you must do advanced research. What is in the stores? What is selling already? What is profitable? There will be deals on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Some stores will even have Pre-Black Friday sales. In the past, most stores were closed on Thanksgiving. Lately, this trend has changed. However, this year, there are a stores that will not be open on Thanksgiving.
My go-to tool that I use to do my Black Friday research is The Reseller’s Guide To Black Friday. This guide gives you the links to 4 Black Friday websites. You can get electronic copies of all of the best ads including ads from Toys R Us, Walmart, Target and Best Buy. When you look at the ads, pay attention to the days of the deals, any quantity limits, available price matching and if there are any guarantees if the deals sell out.
This guide shows you how to do sales rank and sales price history research using Keepa and CamelCamelCamel. If you want more information on sales rank, Keepa and CamelCamelCamel, check out this free video.
Lastly, the guide has updated information about brand and category restrictions. The main take-away is to do your research and make sure you are approved to sell everything you plan on buying for Black Friday.
When you purchase the guide, you also get the following:
