How to Find Amazon Products That Sell on Facebook

How to Find Amazon Products That Sell on Facebook

This post is for those looking to for Amazon products to sell on Facebook. Either as an affiliate or as a dropshipper or maybe even as a unique product creator.

Let’s find out how the Social Post Spy extension can help all of the above.

Firstly, it should be noted that products that are selling well on Amazon won’t necessarily sell well on Facebook. Facebook is a tricky beast, the user’s there are in a distracted state mainly looking to be entertained and talk with friends…not necessarily looking to buy something from Amazon.

With that said we can cross-reference those products that are selling well on Amazon with the post results on Facebook.

Let’s get started.

Firstly, let’s head over to the Amazon best sellers page: https://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers/zgbs

I’m going to be somewhat random here and select the first category that shows. That category for me is Toys and Games

I’m going to select the top three products to cross-reference our Facebook results with. Personally I would do many more than this if I were looking for an actualy product to sell. Here are my top three products:

  1. Melissa & Doug USA (United States) Map Floor Puzzle
  2. L.O.L. Surprise! Makeover Series #Hairgoals Real Hair & 15 Surprises
  3. LEGO Holiday Easter Egg Hunt Building Kit

Great. Now, let’s crank open Social Post Spy and search for our first product:

The search term I used here was map floor puzzle as I knew the specific product was unlikely to return many results. I’m going to collect the first 50 posts for each product and assess the results. From the results I will remove any unrelated posts so the numbers aren’t skewed.

Social Post Spy displays the totals for all the current visible posts. Here are my results:

search

The results for this product were unimpressive to say the least. There were a handful of posts with this product or something similar and many of them had no comments, likes, or shares. Promoting this product on Facebook would be a risky move.

For the second product I’m using the search term L.O.L. Surprise hair.

search

These results are much more promising, with multiple posts with hundreds of likes, shares, and comments. This could be a winner.

For the last product I’m using the search term LEGO easter egg.

search

There are quite a few posts advertising this product, with a few having a handful of likes, shares, and comments. The totals were heavily influenced by just one post though.

Here are the rankings in terms of popularity for each product:

  1. L.O.L. Surprise! Makeover Series #Hairgoals Real Hair & 15 Surprises
  2. LEGO Holiday Easter Egg Hunt Building Kit
  3. Melissa & Doug USA (United States) Map Floor Puzzle

Now this isn’t a complete in-depth analysis for each product but it would be fair to say the bottom two(LEGO & the map puzzle) would perform poorly if you started a Facebook advertising campaign trying to sell them.

Hopefully this article has given you some ideas on how you can use the Social Post Spy extension to research Amazon products to sell on Facebook.
