In this blog, we have already introduced you to a tool to protect against hijackers on Amazon: Helium 10 Alerts. So that you not only know what the tool can do, but also how to use it, we have prepared a Helium 10 Alerts tutorial for you this time. We will go through all the steps together before we also give you an overview of the costs for the tool. By the way, you can find an English tutorial here.
First, we would like to discuss what you need to do before you can use Alerts. After that, we will deal with the operation of the dashboard. Then we will cover the concrete set-up of notifications and alerts. So let's start with the first steps.
To start, of course, you first need to connect your Helium 10 account to your Amazon Seller account. Once you have done that, you are also ready to protect your products from hijackers by having them monitored by Alerts. You can open the tool either on the left or at the bottom right of the Helium 10 dashboard. In the tool itself, you will then see what has happened recently.
You can configure alerts in Helium 10 to warn you of counterfeits. In the settings at the top right, you can define in which case you want to receive such an alert. In the account settings, you can also use your mail address to connect the tool to a smartphone. If you do not want to receive alerts at certain times, you can also specify this. In the settings, you can also see which activities are monitored. You can see this by a green tick.
When you finally return to the dashboard, you can see, among other things, how many products are currently monitored by alerts. This depends on which Helium 10 offer you have booked. We will go into this in more detail in the section "Helium 10 Alerts Costs". You can see from the coloured smileys whether your product is currently in the Buy Box. On the right of the dashboard you will also find practical diagrams on parameters such as customer reviews in a defined period of time. By the way, you can also cancel or reactivate the monitoring of a product with the help of a button.
The analysis of a product can sometimes take an hour. This analysis is then updated every day and you can therefore monitor the current situation at any time. You can link the Amazon listing of a product directly to Alerts. Next to the product image, you can then see how large the number of your competitors is for a particular product. In addition, there is a graph showing the trend over the past 30, 90 or 360 days. A view of the entire sales period is of course also available. Warnings, by the way, are indicated by the black bell at the top right of the Helium 10 dashboard.
In the free version of* Helium 10, you can only have two of your products monitored. You can use Helium 10 Alerts most often in the following plans:
