    Hello,

    I've read the introduction of t0mmy regarding making money online. Thank you very much!
    I'm based in Germany and have a regular daytime job. I want to start selling products on Amazon to have an extra income. I've read the book "Amazon Selling Blueprint" by Scott Voelker already.

    The biggest challenge for me is to find a suitable product. The algorithm suggested by the mentioned book is the following:

    1. Browse the categories
    2. Make a list of existing products with the criteria:"Price, Weight, Size, Best-Seller-Rank (BSR) < 6000, Reviews < 500".
    3. Repeat step number 2 weekly and judge whether a product could be suitable.

    Is that also the way you choose your products? Do you have any additional tips to refine the search?
    I'm looking forward to your answer.

    Best from Berlin

    I dont know of any other filters you could apply, but I remember looking into this way back. Some handy tools you can use are unicorn smasher and jungle scout. I think unicorn was free and jungle was paid.
