In order to succeed on Amazon, you have to disrupt a market. Just like Airbnb and Uber have disrupted their markets, your new product on Amazon has to have an edge.

Before you actually disrupt a market, you have to understand the market. Don't research products, research the market. SmartScout was designed to solve this exact problem.
