Hello and welcome! We’re now just days before Christmas, so we’ll take this opportunity to let you know we’ll have limited coverage the day-of (Tues, Dec 25th), but will be business as usual in the days surrounding.
For those celebrating we wish you a Merry Christmas. For those not, we hope you enjoy a relaxing Tuesday.
Warning: fun stuff this issue. Fun is usually one of our standards, but in this issue we’ve got a few things we think you’re sure to enjoy.
For starters, the new interface is available. It looks great, and we’ve made it so you can switch between new and Classic view. So far we’re calling the new look Dark Mode, and we’re considering making a counterpart, a Light Mode option, for those who prefer lighter shades. You can imagine some of the internal jokes we’ve been making, about Star Wars, the Dark and the Light side of the Force and so on.
We’ll see what it’s eventually called, if it needs a name at all, but for now we’ve been having fun with it. See more in What’s New.
More fun, and helpful, things to share with you under Sellers’ Paradise; social media marketing tools to help you in the New year. Then, in The World Of Amazon we give you tips on how to write high-ranking Amazon product listings, and under Tips & Tricks we show you how to use the incredible Finder tool — which is free in your MBS.
Have a great weekend!
What’s new? The new interface is this week’s big news. We’re excited to roll out this new look, and you can switch to it easily from the Help menu in your MBS:
That will bring up the new look and feel:
You can switch back to the Classic look, if desired, by clicking the Help icon (?) and choosing the theme. A new, Light option is also coming.

TIPS & TRICKS
With the Finder tool it’s now easier than ever to find hot new product opportunities on Amazon. This week we want to show you how to use the multiple selection options and columns to narrow your searches.
Finder is free and it’s available in your ManageByStats now. The main page of the Finder tool gives you information on the operators you can use to narrow your searches. Operators are things like the equals sign (=), greater than (>) and so on.
Let’s take an example of how you might use these operators to set parameters in the Finder tool. We’ll start with the columns at the bottom:
The example settings above would give you products between 400 and 6000 BSR, less than 1000 Reviews, a Price between 17 and 70 dollars (you don’t need the $ sign), and products that weight less than 80 ounces (Weight values are in ounces).
We can then make selections in the Columns:
And select the Product Category or Categories. Finder will display multiple categories at once:
The results are displayed, giving you a wealth of information on products from the selected categories.
THE WORLD OF AMAZON
Your product descriptions might not seem like a huge deal, but … the way you describe your products makes all the difference.
There’s plenty of competition on Amazon, and users may simply click away from your page if you don’t know how to effectively reach them.
Here are some tips and tricks to write high-ranking Amazon product descriptions …
Ah, the humble cat …
A German Shepherd, Doberman and a cat have died.
All three are faced with God, who wants to know what they believe in.
The German Shepherd says, “I believe in discipline training and loyalty to my master.”
“Good,” says God. “Then sit on my right side. Doberman, what do you believe in?”
The Doberman answers. “I believe in the love, care and protection of my master.”
“Very good,” says God. “You may sit to my left.”
Then he looks at the cat and asks, “And what do you believe?”
The cat answers, “I believe you’re sitting in my seat.”
