Amazon Selling Resources & Tools
Everyone knows a market analysis tool is necessary for getting into physical product selling. So, What Market Research Tool Should I Buy? Viral Launch
Viral Launch – Best Product Research Tool
My Review:I think it’s the best Amazon market research tool – the chrome extension button is solid and reliable, and now they have a new Keyword Search Volume tool, which is a must have for product research. And I recommend it over JungleScout. It’s got everything you need for Amazon data – online tools, chrome extension, and even a search volume data. It’s nice cuz they offer other services like Amazon giveaways, product photography, and listing optimization. I’ve used literally every service from them. Yeah it may be a little more pricey than hiring a random freelancer, but you are paying for speed, convenience, and solid work every time. The product photoshoot they did for us was done on a beach and it looked stunning.
CashCowPro – Best Amazon Sales & Profit Dashboard + Email Follow-Up
My review: This it the best site I’ve seen for Amazon Sales Analytics, PLUS it’s got Follow-up Emails built in. The main page breaks down your sales #’s, ROI, Inventory etc. All the stats you need to see in one place. We use CashCowPro for our personal FBA biz daily. We’ve tried others, this seems to be the best and most comprehensive by far. It even includes customer Auto-Email automation, which is $29/mo alone on other platforms, like Sales Backer which we switched from. So at $99/mo, CashCow is actually a deal. We bought the yearly plan cuz, ya know, #BossShit. Sign up here for $15 off monthly!

Travel Tools & Resources
Best Fintech Card for US Citizens – Zero Card. It’s a debit card that you deposit money onto, which you can use to withdrawl cash at ATMS, because they don’t charge ATM fees or foreign transaction fees. When abroad I use the ATM at least once a week, and Bank of America charges a $5 ATM fee, plus 3% foreign transaction fee, so a Zero card saves me hundreds per year. You download the app to apply then they send you a free card – its very easy.
Best Fintech Card (for non-US) with no foreign transaction fees – Revolut. I have several nomad friends who rave about this card – they send you a metal card, which holds all your cards in it. Switch which one is active in the app. I’ve joined the waitlist for the US launch, which they say is coming soon as of late 2019.
Best Travel Insurance – I signed up for SafetyWing. It was recommended to me as the best company that is the least hassle and has less payout complications compared to other companies who always get you on the technical details.
Travel Insurance Tips: in order to be covered for a motorbike accident, which is one of the more common things, especially in SE Asia, you must be sure of these things, otherwise you will NOT be covered and have to pay cash, for example for a $10,000-$20,000 surgery that a buddy just had to pay for a broken leg in Bali, because he did not have the intenational driverse license.
- You must have travel insurance, of course
- You must have an official International Drivers License / Permit.
- You must be wearing a helmet
- The bike can’t be more than 150cc
- You’re not covered if you are broke traffic laws like speeding, or doing wheelies
Booking.com – Booking.com seems to be a popular choice amongst hotels in Southeast Asia. I use it frequently to find cheap hotels. Use this referral link to get a discount on your first booking, cuz why not.
Book Onward Flights Tickets – I discovered this service that provides you proof of onward flight tickets, often required when you enter a country free as tourist on arrival, e.g. for Thailand or Bali! They only charge $5 bucks which is the cheapest I’ve seen.
Google Voice – Gives you a virtual phone number – I use it every day for receiving SMS verification codes & texting family. Have also used it many times to make international calls. Just top-up your balance and call worldwide.
ExpressVPN – My review: I even did a youtube video asking people in China for the best VPN for China or anything else, and this seems to be it. I’ve used & tested it. Works good. For mobile & desktop. Allows you to use YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Google, etc in China.
Thailand Travel Health insurance – no referral link, but this was recommended by a friend. I personally don’t currently pay for insurance.

Guava Pass – for Gyms in Asia – When I move to a new big city like Bangkok, there are lots of gyms to choose from, and drop-ins can be expensive.

Best Funnel Builder: ClickFunnels: This is the most popular tool for marketers for sales pages, marketing funnels, auto webinars, and email capture pages.

Best WordPress Themes & Custom Builder: ThriveThemes – WordPress themes for marketers. I switched to a Thrive Themes template for my blog – it’s optimized for marketers. They sell the whole package with everything you need. I’m stoked about it.
Random Helpful Tools & Plugins I Use
The Best Video Speed Controller – (Chrome Extension) great for webinars where the controls are hidden. Crucial! Allows you to skip ahead and speed up.
Time Doctor – Track the work time of your team, via screen logs. Like upwork, but it’s not for payroll, just so everyone can track their work time for productivity & analysis.
Zoom conferencing – Group call & screen share app I like.
Best Writing Outsourcing Service – BudgetWord.com: High Quality writing services for the best prices. From ecommerce copywriting to blog article writing to social media content to ebook ghostwriting, they do it all.
Best Freelancer Hiring Site – Freeeup.com! Unlike Upwork, they review your posting and recommend the top 1-3 freelancers for you, instead of having to look over dozens of applications. Then you skype chat with the applicants from there. It’s free to post a job. My boi Matt Laker recommended Freeeup to me because they specialize in Amazon FBA experts. But they also have experts in everything.
Best Site to get started freelancing on – Upwork.com – I’ve hired multiple people from here for short term and longer term jobs – customer service, packaging, Amazon PPC management, video editing etc.
Other places to hire:
OnlineJobs.ph – I’ve had a friend who found a rockstar Filipino VA here and couldn’t recommended it enough.
