This week we’re proud to announce a new program, available free to all ManageByStats subscribers.

It’s called MBS Retriever.

Imagine having a personal, overhead drone as you navigate bumper-to-bumper traffic, feeding you direct info on exactly what’s happening ahead, along with everything you need to know to find the best route. 

The new MBS Retriever Extension operates in much this way.

Amazon product research is your traffic jam, the Retriever Extension is your clarity of information and direction.

MBS Retriever is a plugin extension for your Chrome browser that gives you an easy way to validate product ideas on Amazon, helping you decide if a potential product is worth the investment. MBS Retriever’s proprietary sales algorithm and data analysis engine takes all the guesswork out of product research, offering you calculated monthly sales and revenue volume based on real Amazon sales — taking into account historical sales and historical pricing data.

Users of ManageByStats can find it directly in the Catapult menu:

Non-MBS users can also download and use a free version of Retriever, which does not include the historical functions.

Learn more about MBS Retriever, get it for your Chrome browser, and watch the video on how to use it — all in our Knowledge Base:

Inside the Mind of an Amazon Shopper: Five Lessons Learned



The funniest joke in the world – according to millions of voters who ranked and submitted thousands of jokes:

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn’t seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy takes out his phone and calls the emergency services.

He gasps: “My friend is dead! What can I do?” The operator says: “Calm down, I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There’s a silence, then a gunshot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says: “OK, now what?”



“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
