How to do Amazon category analysis with AmzChart?
For every Amazon seller, the choice of products is on the one hand, and on the other hand, you have to place your products under a suitable category path. This category path will bring you traffic and affect your sales.
What Amazon category path do we usually choose?
Organic high traffic (big category or subcategory comes with traffic, such as popular categories), low competition (that is, fewer sellers, fewer products), relatively active(there are new products released from time to time), and the traffic is relatively scattered (that is, there is no monopoly or no products that have taken up most of the market).
If you just starting your Amazon business, and don't know what kind of category path you can choose, maybe you can follow the blueprint we mentioned above, but you have to set some filter criteria to do category research. For example, if I am an Amazon seller, and looking for categories to put my products in, just go "Market Insight", and set the filter criteria (just for example): total listings < 30,000, total reviews > 50,000, which means that it has fewer products but high activity.
But there still are some categories that you might have to stay away from. Such as Media(books, CDs, software, video games), clothing&shoes(they tend to be having high returns), electronics&computers(they tend to be complicated and easy to be damaged), you can check Amazon category analysis to get a better understanding on whether this category has a good rating or not. That's a really effective way. If the negative ratings in that category occupy a larger part, then, on the one hand, you might consider putting your product on a different category path, and on the other hand, to improve your product based on the negative reviews (generally for the manufacturer type sellers) in order to get good sales.
