 What to choose instead of Jungle Scout?

Hi, I'm John, Amazon seller with 5 years of experience and over $100,000 of revenue. To become successful in my business, I have tried hundreds of tools, read hundreds of articles and failed many times. Today I will tell you where you definitely don't want to invest your money, or how JS got me mad. 

Why Jungle Scout is not the best choice for Amazon sellers? 

  1. Price . Their price is not quite fair — they charge $69 for features that others sell for $39 (other services are covered below). Sure, it's the oldest brand on the market, but why should I pay more for it?
  2. Accuracy . Jungle Scout has a serious issue here. On multiple occasions, I've found that Jungle Scout shows one thing, while Amazon Seller Central has completely different numbers for my products. Can I really make decisions based on such data? Buying a product advised by JS in such a case is a downright waste of my money.
  3. Empty promises . Their promotions are full of promises like: "We will teach you how to make $3,000!" But in fact, it is just an overly sophisticated tool that provides you with inaccurate results and heaps of intricate sales materials. It doesn't help to sell successfully.
  4. Fraud . Their money-back guarantee service is not working. They rarely return money, and that happened in my case as well (I decided to try their new Professional plan after 6 months). They improve their ratings on Trustpilot by fake reviews and do other dirty business.

And here goes the most unpleasant. I tried to make a refund on the 12th day, then I emailed support — no result whatsoever. I've searched the Internet and found hundreds of such cases .

Here are some examples:

 What to choose instead of Jungle Scout?

 I've found two great alternatives: 

●    Helium 10 : Yes, it is even more expensive and not suitable for beginners. But for experienced sellers, it’s significantly better than Jungle Scout.

●    IO Scout : They have the same features as Jungle Scout, but at a different price — almost 2 times cheaper. Moreover, they have a great service for beginners — a personal assistant for Amazon business. I haven't seen that anywhere else. Instead of going through tons of webinars and articles, you can simply ask a question in live chat and get an answer.
