Adspert is an Ad optimization software tool for Amazon.
One look at their website reveals how the company went through multiple phases that started from creating automated forecasting systems for stock traders to offering Amazon PPC optimization services for Amazon sellers. Campaign optimization tools are available for both 1P (Vendor Accounts) and 3P (Seller Accounts) and encompass sponsored product, video, and display advertisement.
Adspert claims to be a “hardcore analytics company” which is evident from its strong dependence on artificial intelligence and machine learning to fine-tune PPC campaigns. With functionality across 13 Amazon marketplaces, here are a few ways Adspert aims to help sellers maximize profits:
These three constitute the main benefits or reasons why sellers should invest in the software. So, how much does a subscription cost?
Adspert offers three different pricing plans: Lite (€99/mo.), Standard (€399/mo.), and Enterprise (subject to client’s requirements). Even the basic package seems pricey and outside the affordable range of most sellers. That’s because each plan incorporates Ad optimization features for Google, Bing, Amazon, and Yandex. There is no stand-alone package for Amazon.
At first glance, Adspert’s technical and in-depth features make it seem like the be-all-end-all of Amazon toolkits. Unfortunately, there is more to selling on Amazon than just creating and executing well-planned PPC campaigns. Not to mention the €99/mo. fee for even the basic package.
That’s not to say the features provided aren’t worth the price tag; most sellers need software to optimize PPC campaigns on Amazon and not popular search engines. They would rather subscribe to an affordable monthly plan centered on Amazon selling.
SellerChamp is amongst the few functional repricing software available for Australian Amazon sellers. The interface adopts a minimalistic approach and boasts features revolving around SKU and inventory management. SellerChamp’s main selling point is the ability to upload millions of items at once on both Amazon and eBay reduces overall costs.
Once product listings have been created, SellerChamp automates the repricing process based on statistical data and implements these changes in real-time. The following are a couple of reasons why SellerChamp ranks as a popular repricer:
SellerChamp does a decent job at automating prices and SKU management, but how much money are sellers expected to dish out?
SellerChamp offers 4 flexible seller plans each with a starting limit of 500 SKUs. As the number of SKUs increases, so does the price for each plan.
So, do flexible pricing plans coupled with attractive repricing features make SelleChamp worth the price tag?
If you’re looking for a cost-effective and reliable repricer, SellerChamp has got you covered. The main point of criticism this repricer draws is the same as Adspert—both tools are too one-dimensional.
In most cases, the fee for the Builder and Business enterprise will fetch you a subscription to a holistic seller toolkit capable of performing well and above what SellerChamp has to offer.
MerchantWords is a keyword research tool that’s been around for 9 years. Unlike other tool providers, it hasn’t incorporated additional features into its software making it somewhat of a one-trick pony.
As of mid-2020, MerchantWords has collected over 2 billion keywords, analyzed more than a billion products. and is functional across 11 different Amazon marketplaces
To the uninitiated, the following are a few outstanding benefits of using MerchantWords:
Let’s look at the pricing plans.
MerchantWords offers the choice of 3 subscription plans aptly named Silver, Gold, and Platinum priced at $29/month, $79/month, and $149/month, respectively. Here’s what each has to offer:
With the features and pricing out of the way, let's go through the verdict!
Is a MerchantWords subscription worth it? Yes, but only if your only concern is product research because other than that, there’s not much the tool has to offer. But what MerchantWords does, it does well, and for that, it deserves a spot on our list.
Now, before you think we’re tooting our own horn, hear us out.
Egrow is a great tool. And so are Adspert, SellerChamp, and Merchant Words. ZonGuru is another valuable addition to this list.
You can do everything with ZonGuru that you can with Egrow—and, sometimes, a tad bit more!😉
For example, you can find backend keywords of your competitors that help drive traffic to their listing and use those keywords to supercharge your product page. Talk about Italian Job done well! This functionality isn’t available with Egrow.
Likewise, you can keep track of all your Amazon orders and order statuses, alongside customer contact info. Filter the orders that need to be refunded. Reach out to buyers and provide them a wholesome shopping experience.
Here is a quick comparison chart to further expand on the differences between Egrow and ZonGuru, and why the latter is a capable alternative:
Of course, there are a lot of overlaps too.
Both Egrow and ZonGuru offer dedicated in-depth product research tools. Egrow names these Database Research and Live Amazon Scanner. Our versions include Niche Finder and Niche Rater (a standalone Chrome extension).
All tools are highly customizable and can be tailored to match your search requirements. In the case you want to opt for the easy option and avoid the customization, you can use Niche Finder’s Easy Mode to find your ideal product niche.
In addition, ZonGuru also offers a solution to differentiate your product by offering insights into what customers like or dislike about the existing listings in your niche.
This is another area where Egrow and ZonGuru overlap. And they both bring their own strengths to the table.
With Egrow, you get access to data in over fourteen marketplaces. These include Australia, India, Singapore, Brazil, UAE, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, USA, UK, Spain, Italy, France, Canada, and Germany. In contrast, ZonGuru works with Amazon USA, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, Mexico, Australia, and India. Not much difference, but Egrow clearly offers superior coverage.
That said, ZonGuru has one distinct advantage over its fellow competitor.
Egrow gets its search volume data from Google, which can make the numbers misleading for Amazon sellers. ZonGuru, on the other hand, is an official Amazon partner. It gets its data directly from Amazon’s database, which makes it more accurate for finding profitable keywords.
Both Egrow and ZonGuru can help you reverse engineer your competitors and extract their important keywords. You can then use this information to optimize your listing and increase your sales.
There is one problem, though.
Egrow allows you to input only one ASIN at a time. So, if you want to research multiple competitors, you must review them separately in different tabs. This can be super time consuming.
However, if you’re using ZonGuru, you don’t have to worry about any such issues. The tool allows you to evaluate up to 25 competitors at once.
In short, ZonGuru is a more than capable alternative to Egrow, and has some awesome additional features. We also routinely pump out webinars, podcasts, informative blogs and articles--like this amazing Australian seller guide, and a ton of other resources to keep you at the top of your selling game.
Ready to seize the opportunity? Head over to our Niche Finder page to find your next million-dollar product on Amazon. You can even test-run the tool for 7 days, and once you are 100% satisfied, you can join the ZonGuru community 😊. Best of luck and see you on the other side!
