Black Box has become an important support for numerous sellers in their search for products with great potential on the Amazon marketplace. Among other things, the tool helps you to identify niches through which you can significantly increase your profit. After we have already given you a general overview in our blog, this post is intended to provide the Helium 10 Black Box Tutorial, which you can use to find your way around the tool's dashboard. For a detailed tutorial in English, you can go directly to Helium 10 here.
To use the tool, it is first important to know how the dashboard is structured. Therefore, we show you this in the first step of the Helium 10 Black Box tutorial. Furthermore, we inform you about the different filter options that are available to you. At the end, we show you what information you get from the search results.
To start, you must open the Black Box Tool. You will find the corresponding icon in the Helium 10 software in the left-hand menu. In the tool itself you will then see two different sections. In the first section you can define all search settings. In the second, the respective search results are displayed. In addition, you have access to five areas in the search, each of which stands for a product focus. These areas include "Products", "Keywords", "Competitors", "Niche" and "Product Targeting". From the dashboard, you can then start the search with simple or advanced filter options as needed.
In the product search, you can specify the country whose Amazon marketplace is to be searched by Black Box. By default, "Amazon.com" is set for the United States. However, for accurate results, you should specify the exact country in which you sell or want to increase your sales. So if you sell on the German Amazon market, you must select "Amazon.de". You should also conduct a separate search for each additional country so that you can adapt your product to all the preferences of the customers there. You can also search specific Amazon categories. Another factor for a successful sale is the size of your packages. Therefore, Black Box also allows you to specify this filter option to decide whether you want to opt for shipping via Amazon FBA or would prefer to be responsible for storing and shipping your products yourself.
To narrow down the search further, you can also select "Advanced Filters". This allows you to see whether a particular product is stocked and shipped by Amazon or by the retailer itself. The search is also carried out in the different areas either by specific words and word groups or by the ASIN of a product. In addition, you can always refer back to the previous search with Black Box and save particularly important results. If you click on the button labelled "Competitors", you can download search results as a CSV file. Long-tail keywords, i.e. keywords that only occur in certain niches, are also displayed in the "Niche" area. In the "Product Targeting" section, you will find the products that frequently appear as suggestions under similar items on Amazon.
Your search results are displayed in the lower section of the Helium 10 Black Box Dashboard. This provides you with useful additional information, such as the sellers, the price, or the monthly sales. From there, you can also navigate directly to the Amazon listing of a product or save the search result for later analysis. There is also a menu available that allows you to sort your results by a specific category.
Black Box is included in various Helium 10 plans. In the free version you can use the tool up to 20 times. It is also part of the following offers:
Furthermore, you can use Black Box for $37 per month as part of the A la Carte plan. We also have a savings tip for you: With our Helium 10 Code you can save 50% in the first month or 10% in every month! You can find all the information here.
We have had very good experiences with the Black Box Dashboard so far. The control centre of the tool is very clear and has also supported us immensely in our own product research. In particular, the large selection of filters has convinced us. The precise search results made our work immensely easier and we were able to identify niches for our own products. In our opinion, Black Box is the best Amazon tool for product research. So if you want to identify product niches on Amazon yourself, we can only recommend Black Box. If you would also like to find out more about the other tools of Helium 10, you can find an article on the software as well as articles on each individual tool in our blog.
