ManageByStats This Week – Issue 1847
Our MBS family is truly global, so not all of you will be celebrating today. However, for those of you in the States let us wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.
This is a time for being with loved ones, eating (of course), and, most importantly, celebrating the things we’re thankful for as we look to the future.
Even if you’re not in the States, celebrating this official holiday, we hope you have a chance today to be with loved ones, enjoy a good meal, and look ahead to your future. After all, those are some of the best things in life.
Like the food you’ll soon be enjoying, we’ve got some juicy tidbits for you.
First off, don’t walk, run to the What’s New section for updates on two amazing free webinars coming up next week. You won’t want to miss these.
Secondly, we’ve added a great new option for sorting: Product Tags. This new option greatly enhances our already superb report generating tools. Read more about it in What’s New, and learn how to use it in Tips & Tricks.
Thirdly, get some insight on funding options for an ecomm biz under Sellers’ Paradise, and learn 3 strategies for growing your Amazon business under The World Of Amazon.
Oh, and no matter where you are in the world, if you’re here with us then you’re selling on Amazon — we all have that in common — and if you’re selling on Amazon, then you know tomorrow, the day after Thanksgiving, kicks off the holiday shopping season.
Black Friday, Cyber Monday … the surge is coming.
So as we wrap up a day of celebration, looking to the future, let’s take a collective breath and get ready for the most amazing year yet.
Here’s to fantastic holiday sales and a prosperous tomorrow.

- Do advanced product analytics
- Build highly tailored customer lists
- Generate custom graphs
- Assign specific product groupings
and more. Anywhere the SKU selector exists, you can tailor your selection using the SKU Tags.
Add Tags to SKUs under Settings > SKUs in your MBS. Click to edit the SKU in question, and add Tags in the Product Tag field:
You’ll then be able to filter by your Tags anywhere you have the SKU Selector:

All of these shows results for criteria that match all of the selected Tags.
