Helium 10 Tool Highlight

One of the first tools that people learn about when it comes to Helium 10 is the free chrome extension. It's every tool you need in one easy location. Whether you are a platinum plan subscriber or stick to the free plan, the Helium 10 chrome extension has something for every seller. 

The chrome extension is easy to use and easy to download. Its accessibility is one of its most attractive qualities and is what makes so many people give it a try. With the extension, you can leverage product and keyword research without ever leaving your browser. The tool Xray, found in the chrome extension, has access to over 450 million ASINs to help you find your next product. 

You can access sales estimates as well as product insights and reviews for potential products using Sales Estimator, Profitability Calculator, and Review Insights. All of these are directly built into the chrome extension and allow you to take all of the guesswork out of finding the product that will work the best for your needs and goals. The Sales Estimator gives accurate monthly sales estimates based on multiple data points. The Profitability Calculator uses data to find your profit margins for given products so you can see how much it will cost you to sell a product. The Review Insights tool lets you see the strengths and weaknesses of your competitors so you can leverage your product!

This free and easy-to-use tool lets you see all of this information directly from your Amazon browser. Having the Helium 10 chrome extension is like having the world's most efficient pit crew!

Helium 10 Update

Mobile App Sunset

We wanted to let you know that beginning November 1st, we pulling the Helium 10 Mobile App from the Apple App Store. 

Effective immediately, we will not be doing any future development on the app or fixing any bugs. We highly recommend removing any mentions or training covering the mobile app from your videos, blogs, guides, or classes.

About 6 months ago, we were flagged for offering a subscription-based service, and Apple has flagged us for not offering the ability for in-app purchases. So for us to be compliant, they are requiring us to add in-app purchases, however, at this time, we will not be using resources to add in-app purchases.

So what does this mean if a user has already downloaded the mobile app? If they choose to delete it (iPhone, iPad users), they will no longer be able to find it in the Apple/iTunes app store to re-download it. So we recommend keeping it installed if they like using the Mobile App. The mobile app will still be available for Andriod users, but the app will no longer be updated or supported.

We will be refocusing our time and resources on improving the core browser experience and enhancing other Helium 10 tools. Our users will be able to access the following tools from your mobile browser:

  • Profits
  • Keyword Tracker
  • Adtomic
  • Alerts

We are here to help! If you have any additional questions or concerns, please reach out to your Affiliate Manager or email us at: support@helium10.com.

And as always, thank you for being a trusted partner in promoting Helium 10.

Noteworthy News

It’s time for the Fall Affiliate Contest

Get ready to increase your conversions, because this month we are giving out HUGE prizes in our Fall Affiliate Contest. In November, we want YOU to push the new 20% off 6 months coupon, and to reward you for your hard work, we are giving away prizes based on the conversions you gain.

As you know, we are transitioning our affiliate program to use a new coupon that is 20% off for 6 months. Come January 1, 2023, you will no longer be able to use the old 50% off 1-month coupon. To encourage and incentivize more affiliates to make the switch before the new year rings in, we are putting on the Fall Affiliate Contest. We will be tracking your conversions in November and comparing them to October’s conversions. If you increase your conversions using the new 20% coupon, you could win some amazing prizes. 

There will be a wide range of conversion tiers starting at just 5 additional qualifying conversions all the way to the top prize at 150 additional qualifying conversions. Now you might be wondering “what is a qualifying conversion and how can I track how many I have gotten?” Well don’t worry, we got you covered. A qualifying conversion is any conversion, new or upgraded, using the 20% coupon or below. This means we will also be counting any conversions that use the 10% off annual plans as well as conversions that use no coupon as qualified conversions. To track these conversions and see where you are ranking, our team has set up a leaderboard that will automatically track the qualifying conversions you receive over November and subtract them from your October conversions and then display what tier you are currently ranked at. All you have to do to track this leaderboard is talk to your affiliate manager who will provide you with your codename for the contest. This leaderboard will be updated daily so every day you can visit the contest homepage and see where you are currently ranking. 

Now it wouldn’t be a Helium 10 affiliate contest if we didn’t have some amazing prizes lined up for you. We have prizes like $5,000 to stay at any Four Seasons resort of your choice, concert tickets for you and a guest, a shopping spree for all of your technology needs as well as your luxury item needs, a vacation at a luxury Airbnb and so much more. To learn more about your prize options and how many conversions you need to get those prizes, please visit the contest information page and if you are ready to participate, simply click here!

The Fall Affiliate Contest officially starts on November 3rd and will run until November 30th at 11:59 PM PT. If you are interested in participating in this contest, please visit here or talk with your affiliate manager. Make sure to track your progress using the leaderboard and keep an eye on your email inbox for updates and reminders for the contest. To learn more about the contest, visit the page here!

Affiliate Tip of the Month

What is BBL 

On the third Thursday of every month, Helium 10 hosts a webinar called Bigger Better Launch. During these virtual events, our team of experts reveals new features, functions, strategies, and tools. Internally, Helium 10 team members refer to this event as BBL.

So why should you tune in? First and foremost, as the leader in the eCom tool space, Helium 10 moves fast to release new tools and expand the features of our existing tool suite. Keeping up with those changes can be challenging. Attending this monthly event gives you a snapshot of the changes taking place and allows you to sit back, watch, listen, and get caught up quickly. Undoubtedly, with every BBL you tune in for, you’ll come away with at least three content ideas.

You’re also welcome to invite your audience to monthly BBLs. Not only is it valuable, free content, but it is yet another opportunity to cookie potential subscribers, upgrade existing subs and provide timely information on new Amazon and Walmart strategies without creating the content yourself. You might be thinking, “the majority of my audience does not speak English.” No problem! As a Helium 10 partner, you are welcome to repurpose and translate the BBL content into any language. Creative ideas like this help you grow your conversions/commissions month over month.

Before the November 17th BBL, be sure to ask your account manager for your BBL link.
