Starting a business on Amazon can be hard and stressful, especially if you’ve never done something like that before. Also, it can be overwhelming if your Amazon business is a side hustle at first. That’s why you need help from those more experienced in Amazon. The best way to find talented Amazon freelancers is by using the new Jungle Scout feature, Jungle Scout Market. This Amazon seller app is a pool of freelancers offering various services, at different prices. It’s similar to Upwork and Fiverr but more suitable and secure for Amazon sellers.
Jungle Scout Market: What It Is?
Jungle Scout Market is a seller app that helps you find freelancers specializing in Amazon, e.g. copywriters, photographers, and graphic designers. It’s more or less a freelancing platform where freelancers offer their services. It’s similar to Upwork and Fiverr, but with major differences (we’ll look at them a bit later). Using this platform, you’ll be able to find experienced freelancers who know what they are doing. This will save you lots of money as your business will be in good hands. Also, it will help you transition to this new world for you.
Jungle Scout Market vs Upwork and Fiverr
Although Jungle Scout Market is a platform operating similarly to the well-known Upwork and Fiverr, it’s far from being the same. First, because here you can find only freelancers who are experienced and/or specialize in Amazon. For instance, the copywriters featured know how to create eye-catchy, high-converting, and optimized product listings. Second, the freelancers listed on the platform are carefully selected based on their skills and experience. They are thoroughly reviewed by the Jungle Scout staff and go through a hiring process before being accepted into the marketplace. This guarantees sellers that all freelancers are truly experts in their field.
Jungle Scout Market: Features
Ease of Use
Considering the plethora of features that Jungle Scout has, you may think that Jungle Scout Market is quite complex. Well, you’re wrong! Jungle Scout Market comes with a simple and easy-to-navigate interface. This makes using the platform easy, even if you are a newbie. Plus, you don’t need any special skills to use it, just to know how to click (*smile*).
Simple Product Research
Finding the right product(s) to sell in your Amazon store may feel like a burden, especially for newbies. Your business’ success completely relies on the products you choose. That’s why you have to be very careful when searching for the right products. But, how you will know which products are worth investing in and which aren’t? Jungle Scout Market is one with Jungle Scout, thus giving you access to all product data, such as sales, rank, market demand, competitors, and more. Knowing those stats, you’ll be able to choose the right products for your store without too much thinking.
Apart from helping you find the right products, Jungle Scout Market also helps you validate your product ideas. It doesn’t matter if you worry about the market’s response to your products or whether your product ideas are good, the marketplace will help you make the right choice. It will even teach you how to validate products yourself and become confident about running your business.
Real-Time Amazon Data
We’ve already mentioned that Jungle Scout is directly connected to Amazon, which gives you access to all data. However, this connection does more than that. Namely, the data is so real-time that you don’t even have to leave your page to search through product databases and get access to different types of sales stats. Having this data in your hand will help you plan your business and the next steps you take.
Jungle Scout Market: Tools
Being one with Jungle Scout, users get access to 4 important tools, including:
1. Product Tools
Apart from being a freelancing platform, Jungle Scout Market is also a sort of product database. As such, it helps you find products to sell in your Amazon store. How to Use It?
- Select the criteria you want your products to match.
- Enter keywords in the search bar.
- Jungle Scout will provide you with a list of all products matching your criteria.
- Choose a product database. Each database shows a set of 30 niches you can choose from based on your preference.
2. Keyword Tools
Keywords are the essence of Amazon SEO and ranking your product listings. They can either skyrocket your business or bury it deep down. But, you don’t have to worry about that with a tool like Keyword Scout. This tool helps you find the right keywords by showing their volume, PPC rates, and relevancy. How to Use It?
- Enter keywords of your choice.
- Keyword Scout will instantly provide you with all relevant keywords and their data.
- Look at the data to identify which keywords would work best for your product.
3. Launch Tools
Marketing is another important factor for Amazon sellers. It’s the factor that places your products in front of your target audience. In that way, it helps boost your listing’s visibility, increases the conversion percentage, and increases the number of sales. When using the Jungle Scout Market, you get access to two launch tools: Email Campaigns and Promotions. Email Campaigns helps Amazon sellers keep in touch with their customers. It allows them to create and send follow-up emails to the buyers and confirm the status of orders. Additionally, this tool helps you improve your social media presence and increase customer engagement, increase conversions, improve your rank, and boost sales. Promotions, as the name suggests itself, is a tool that allows you to create promotional packages to support your product launch and maximize visibility and sales. These packages are usually in the form of discounts where sellers offer their product at a lower price for the first x buyers. By creating these promotions, you will ensure a sleek and successful product launch. Successful launches result in more sales and higher ranks. And, that’s what every seller dreams of!
4. Supplier Tools
And, last but not least, Jungle Scout Market gives you access to the suppliers’ database. There, you can find reliable suppliers across the globe and choose the ones that suit you the most. When choosing your supplier(s), make sure you check their reputation. You can do this by checking their volume of completed shipments, commitments, and delivery time.
Jungle Scout Market Pricing To have access to Jungle Scout Market, you need to purchase one of the three Jungle Scout plans:
- Basic – starting from $29/month for a yearly subscription
- Suite – starting from $49/month for a yearly subscription
- Professional – starting from $84/month for a yearly subscription
Purchasing a yearly subscription saves you quite a lot of money.

Jungle Scout Alternatives
Not quite into what Jungle Scout Market offers? Maybe it is because of the price or some other reason. Either way, you can try AMZ One Step.
AMZ One Step
AMZ One Step is not a freelancing platform like Jungle Scout Market. Instead, it’s like an “agency” with a team of Amazon professionals offering various services to Amazon sellers. They cover all aspects of an Amazon business, from marketing to listing optimization to administration and more. Their services include:
- Listing Optoimization
- PPC advertising
- Enhanced Brant Content – personalized brand content strategy
- Accounts management
Compared to Jungle Scout Market, AMZ One Step offers the same services. However, there is a big disadvantage. You don’t know WHO is doing the job, whose hands your business is in. And, that’s bad because you’d never leave your business in a stranger’s hands, right?
On the other hand, AMZ One Step is less expensive, with prices starting from $15. Also, they have a 14-day free trial period for all plans. Plus, there is a 10-day money-back guarantee that starts right after the free trial.
