Helium 10 is the swiss army knife of Amazon FBA tools which includes powerful integrated tools like Black Box and Cerebro to help propel your Amazon FBA business. Experienced users wonder how they sold on Amazon without it.
Helium 10 suite of tools makes it a must-have for sellers.
Helium 10’s platinum plan is a great value for most people.
The interface is easy to use after a few days.
Support is responsive, most questions will be answered within 24 hours.
Helium 10 is the all-in-one platform that touts itself to be (drum roll please) “THE Ultimate Amazon FBA tool!" A serious claim, given the array of other tools out there such as Jungle Scout and AMZScout.
So, in this Helium 10 review, I will be putting the platform through its paces and answering the important questions so you can really weigh up the Helium 10 pros and cons and decide how this FBA tool can help your business.
That having been said, I won’t hide the fact that I really do like this software. Aside from a couple of average features and a bit of overlap between tools (which I’ll explain more about later on) this is an impressive tool kit that comes at a competitive price.
But, before we get into it, you’re probably asking yourself. What is Helium 10 used for? Why do I need to use an Amazon FBA Tool? Or, can I make money on Amazon without using Helium 10?
To answer those very good questions, we should first take a step back and consider 'Why Amazon FBA?'
We know already that Amazon is THE heavyweight champion of all-time champions when it comes to eCommerce. With 300 million active customers and net sales amounting to close to 514 billion U.S. dollars in 2022, you don’t need to be a math genius to figure out why so many online sellers choose Amazon FBA as their marketplace of choice.
BUT, because the Amazon stats are so damn big, there are literally over 9 million sellers all armed with pitchforks in hand to fight for and defend their piece of that yummy pie!
Whilst that hefty competition might be a deterrent for some, the truly seasoned and successful Amazon sellers understand that knowledge is power and that utilizing the right suite of tools is a universal truth and game-changer.
Trying to be a successful Amazon seller without Amazon FBA tools means that YOU have to do all the heavy lifting and more concerningly, you will be indulging in risky guesswork to find products to scale.
Whilst there is no shortage of tools available to help, the choice of FBA tools out there can be confusing. And picking the wrong one for your business and goals can be a frustrating waste of valuable time and money!
But don’t throw in the towel just yet. We’ve been there and bought the T-shirt, so to speak, and if you do nothing else today, you should pat yourself on the back for doing one good thing for your business by looking at this comprehensive Helium 10 review.
So, let’s dive right into the review!
Most people who sell on Amazon have heard of Helium 10. It’s been around a little while and over 700,000 Amazon sellers have generated $4 Billion plus in sales using the Helium tools, but just in case you haven’t heard the name Helium 10, this section will quickly get you up to speed.
Turning a product idea into a real way to make money online, isn’t as easy as everyone makes it sound. The challenge of creating a successful eCommerce business has become more competitive and complex over time, and having a good product isn’t necessarily a direct path to riches. That’s why more and more sellers are turning to software tools to take out some of the grunt work and guesswork to help them build a successful eCommerce business.
Helium 10 is the industry’s first All-In-One Amazon Software. Meaning that the creators are providing an end-to-end tool kit to help manage your Amazon-based business. There are around 30 ‘power tools’ bundled together to help Amazon FBA merchants manage their business.
Helium 10 tools help the best Amazon sellers find ideas for new stuff that can be sold, create high-ranking product listings, track their success using the keywords ranking tool, and evaluate the competition, all from the convenience of its dashboard. Plus, there are a bunch of other nifty features.
Whilst in our opinion, the true value of Helium 10 is to take an already OK Amazon FBA store to the next level and build a serious Amazon brand, it’s also suitable for absolute beginners.
If you’re starting out, there are likely components of the software that aren’t needed to achieve your immediate goals, but if you’re planning to be an Amazon seller for the long run, then the software will set you up to become an Amazon power seller and create a scalable business from the ground up.
So now that we’ve given a bird's eye view as to what is Helium 10. You’re probably thinking that for a platform stuffed full of so many features, the quick summary just doesn’t cut it and you really need to know more. Our Helium 10 review must go deeper to understand what is Helium 10 used for and to explain all the key benefits and features of the software.
Whilst the package started out with 10 tools (hence the name Helium 10), the suite now has around 30 tools. So, I suggest you take a breath because we’re going to break it down.
To help you organize this jumbo package into a workable solution, I have created a Helium 10 Quick Guide, so you can see for yourself how I use Helium 10. Because we love being helpful to our Hustle Life readers, I have shared my workflow and list of essential Helium 10 tools later in this article. It is a go-to guide to help make sense of this comprehensive tool kit.
The Helium 10 guys have also helped us out a bit by splitting the suite into several categories. The categories are Product Research, Keywords Research, Listing Optimization, Operations, Analytics, Marketing, and Finance. In each category, you have access to tools that do a specific job:
Product Research Tools will help you to quickly find profitable products that build your business.
Keyword Research Tools will help you rank higher in searches and beat your competitors
Listing Optimization Tools help you craft high-quality, converting listings
Operations Tools help you run your business by automating tasks and sending reminders
Analytics Tools takes the guesswork out of your decisions, by providing you with accurate data
Marketing Tools help you get out in front of your competition with direct traffic targeting and powerful ad campaigns
Whilst this list is impressive and certainly ticks the boxes in terms of scope and quantity, sometimes it's quality that matters most. We often get asked, ‘Can Helium 10 really do it all?’ If you’re after a simple answer then the answer is ‘Yes’. The longer answer is ‘Yes, but some of the tools are better, more essential, and more useful than others.
The even longer answer is that there are tools out there that do a much better job at some of the tasks. See our Jungle Scout vs Helium 10 quick comparison below.
So maybe Helium 10 isn’t the best at everything, but in total it does do an impressive job at helping you manage your FBA business from end to end.
All the tools and features we discuss below are easily accessible via the Helium 10 website and the centralized dashboard.
So, let’s take a look at some of the key features that I use and understand. I will also be talking through not just WHAT they do, but more importantly HOW they can power up your Amazon FBA business and propel you to the next level.
Finding a winning product to sell on Amazon is one of the most daunting challenges newer Amazon sellers have to deal with.
Helium 10 Black Box is amongst the best Amazon product research tools. It provides insights that can help you discover potential bestselling products in untapped niches with low competition.
The Helium Black Box tool has tabs for “products”, “keywords”, “competitors”, “marketplace,” “product targeting” and “niche” which allows you to search for products using different parameters.
Let me show you how.
Inside the Black Box Products tab, it’s easy to use filters to find products that meet your criteria. Tweak the filters and watch as Black Box shows up to 200 product ideas.
In a test run using Black Box for this Helium 10 review, in just a few clicks of a button, I was able to find 3 products in the baby niche showing some potential. You can see in the screenshot that all products show strong sales performance.
If I run these products through the Listing Analyzer, I can see that they have poor-quality product descriptions, less than 4-star ratings, and few product images.
However, despite the poor-quality listings, they are making sales. Surely If I were to compete with a similar product but with a better-quality listing, I can outperform the current sellers?
Uncovering these opportunities is what the Black Box Products tab does best!
Most people will rely on the Products tab to identify potential products or niches. But I also suggest using the “keywords” tab to find high-volume keywords.
Because high keyword demand strongly indicates customer demand for a product.
If you want to see a demo, then watch Helium 10’s Pro training video on how to use Black Box in Helium 10 to identify some great products and niche opportunities.
Check out my step-by-step process and some great filter settings in my dedicated Black Box post, where you will quickly learn how to easily find top Amazon products to sell!
Before we leave this topic, another great product research tool by Helium 10 is the Amazon Chrome Extension featuring the Xray tool. With Xray, you can continue your research and dig deeper into product and competitor analysis.
In a tough marketplace doing Advanced Amazon product research is a task that can’t be bypassed. Having this kind of data at your fingertips is what will give you the edge over your competition, improve your Best Sellers Rank (BSR), and help drive sales to your Amazon products.
Let me first say that if you don’t do thorough Amazon keyword research then you won’t be using powerful Amazon backend keywords in your product titles or product descriptions.
Guessing at buyer keywords isn’t an option for any serious Amazon seller.
Another important factor (which seems obvious but is worth clarifying) is that Amazon keyword research must be based on the Amazon search results and data. Using keyword research tools like Google Planner, SEMRUSH and AHREFS is just not that relevant because they are based on Google searches.
Whilst Helium 10 has several Amazon keyword tools, the most popular and useful is Helium 10 Cerebro. Cerebro is a best-in-class Amazon keyword research tool that gives you direct access to the keywords that are driving your competitors’ performance.
This reverse ASIN Keyword tool is quick to use, and the filters make it easy to target and narrow down your search results.
With Helium 10 Cerebro you can:
To learn how to do Amazon competitor analysis and find top Amazon keywords, then read my Helium 10 Cerebro Tutorial: 8 Keyword Research Strategies to Rank on Amazon!
See Cerebro in action in this practical screen share video:
Using better keywords is how you can organically move your product ranking onto page one of the Amazon search results. Helium 10 Magnet helps you search Amazon keywords to find the best keywords to help your products rank.
Unlike Cerebro, you start a search in Magnet using an Amazon generic keyword or seed keywords. Magnet then serves up all the associated or related keywords.
The associated or related keywords can often be a list of thousands of Amazon keywords. To find the most searched terms on Amazon, you can use filters and other criteria to prioritize the Magnet keywords.
P.S. If it still isn’t obvious why you need two keyword research tools and I haven’t done a great job of explaining the differences between Cerebro and Magnet, then jump down to our FAQ section.
Helium 10 has several Amazon seller listing tools to facilitate Amazon listing optimization:
Together these tools are a solution for doing effective Amazon SEO. Using these tools, you can implement the 6 strategies for Amazon product listing optimization.
When you do Amazon keyword research using Helium 10 Cerebro and Magnet, they tend to generate A TON of keyword phrases including repeats and some strange or unrelated keywords.
While some people love trawling through lines of data to sort everything manually, it’s just not something I personally have any time or passion for.
That’s when I like to roll out the red carpet for Helium 10’s Frankenstein!
Frankenstein takes care of the keyword clean-up.
In a test run I did a quick import of over 2000 keywords (from Helium 10 Magnet) and ran them through Frankenstein. Using Frankenstein’s sorting and processing power, I was able to reduce the list to 410 keywords. I then removed duplicate and single-letter words to reduce the list down further to just 87 keywords!
Shoehorning 87 keywords into a product listing is a much easier (and achievable) task than 2000 words!
The other incredibly good news is that Frankenstein is 100% compatible with Scribbles (Listing Builder). Which I will talk about next.
Amazon listing Builder tool (Formerly Scribbles) was the birth child of Helium 10. A tool designed to help create optimized Amazon product listings.
Unfortunately, many newbie sellers don’t think enough about their product listings. Take my advice: listing optimization is a BIG DEAL.
Using a patented Helium 10 algorithm, the tool scours Amazon, analyzing competitor listings and sources information from them.
With Helium 10 Listing Builder, sellers can:
Listing Builder / Scribbles automates many minor tasks, AND if your frontal cortex is firing blanks, then you can connect to Chat GPT for an AI written listing.
The Listing Analyzer tool isn’t just useful for finding gaps in your competitor listings (like I demonstrated in the above section on the Black Box Products Tab). It is also a great tool to check your own ASINs.
Your products just won’t show up in the search results if the Amazon algorithm hasn’t indexed your products properly against your keywords. So, no indexing means zero sales!
You can literally type each of your keywords into the Amazon search bar and manually check if your product is listed in the catalog! But, even if you’re a chronic insomniac, the idea of manually checking the Amazon keyword indexing doesn't sound appealing.
The solution is the Helium 10 Amazon Index Checker tool that verifies if your products have been Amazon indexed.
Using the feature is straightforward. Just upload your keywords and the tool will list what has or hasn’t been indexed.
Amazon keyword indexing issues can be fixed up in your listing.
The tool is also useful for checking your competitor’s keywords against your own ASIN! Anything that isn’t indexed in your listing could be a valuable keyword for you to add.
They say the devil is in the detail. The 4 core Amazon listing optimization tools hold true to this idiom. But I also think these tools have helped me avoid hours (probably days) of manual work. This is time I’ve been able to spend focused on other aspects of my Amazon FBA business. Reaping rewards in other ways.
Adtomic is the revamped version of Helium 10 Ads.
If you’ve been an Amazon seller for a while, you’ll know that you can quickly chew through 100’s or even 1000’s of dollars. If you’re getting a decent ROI (ROAS) from your advertising spend then this isn’t a problem. But if you have a low ROI, then all your hard work is in vain.
Adtomic is the Amazon advertising platform that will help you create Amazon ads, decide which keywords to target, analyze the results of your campaigns, and help you understand how to increase your ROI.
Before we start looking at some of the analytics tools, I want to also quickly mention a page builder called Portals, which is one of Helium 10’s newer features.
With Portals you can:
Aside from the practical aspects, the important benefit is that with a professional and integrated landing page, you’ll start to shift from having individual items being sold on Amazon to establishing your Amazon business as a brand.
I’m keen to give Portals a test drive to enhance my product listings. I didn’t get time to implement it into my workflow yet, but I’ll report back the next time I refresh this article.
With so many Amazon sellers out there all hungry for more sales, keeping a close eye on your competition has to be high on your priority list. This is what makes Keyword Tracker a must-have and must-use part of the tool kit.
If you really want to maintain your product sales and momentum and to help avoid getting your market share sliced up, then this tool is going to help you do just that.
You can track an ASIN, Product URL, or specific keywords of interest that are relevant to your products. You can also see the search volume, competing products, trends in terms of search rank positioning, competitor ranking, and it shows this data for sponsored (PPC campaigns) as well as organic results.
I’ve built Keyword Tracker into my normal workflow for my important high-value products that are the cornerstone of my mini FBA empire. If you want to see when and how I use other tools then take a look at my quick go-to guide below.
It’s giving me the data to help me understand how I’m fairing against my competitors. If I’m losing ground or dropping in my ranking, then I know I need to pay more attention to my competitors and to make adjustments to my keywords or product listings.
The Market Tracker tool is another newer tool useful for existing FBA sellers who want to get a more complete picture of the marketplace or markets relevant to your products.
With the tool you can:
The Profits tool is a full financial reporting tool that gathers and collates important financial data into one convenient dashboard.
It’s a live portal so data is refreshed every 30 minutes (or every 5 minutes for Elite Plan members) meaning you can use the data to make (near) real-time decisions.
If you want to see more detailed data on product profitability, inventory levels, advertising ROI (ROAS), and other expenses, then this is your go-to tool.
A word of warning though; in reality, if you’ve just launched the product, with little to no sales, the tool will not present an accurate picture. So, don’t go making rash decisions before the data has a chance to detect genuine trends.
Amazon listing and ranking hijackings happen when someone takes action to alter your listing or sell counterfeits of your branded products.
The Alerts feature won’t necessarily stop this from happening, but it does provide 24/7 listing protection by immediately sending alerts via SMS or email whenever someone attempts to hijack your listing. It also captures and sends daily screenshots of your active listings and provides reporting templates to quickly report a hijacking incident to Amazon should one occur.
Alerts will monitor all your ASINs and will notify you if someone is selling what you are selling or altering your listing to use it for themselves.
You need to connect the Alerts tool to your Amazon seller account to start tracking all the listings. You will be alerted if people have hopped on your listing or are using an edited version.
Alerts checks for:
Alerts can also be sent via email so that you don’t have to keep checking on your listing.
Another nifty feature of the Alerts tool is it takes screenshots of the updates every day via desktop and mobile of your listing. So, if something does go wrong, you can go back and do a visual check of the listing’s history and changes.
Come Black Friday or Christmas, most sellers take advantage of high-volume sales by offering competitive discounts and promos.
Instead of you being able to build up your brand and customer base and potentially create upsells; a nefarious competitor or astute/greedy buyer could wipe out your entire stock of heavily discounted products in one hit.
The inventory protector tool helps avoid the issue by setting the maximum amount of a particular item per sale.
Many sellers would think that this inventory protector type feature would be baked into Amazon but it isn’t.
What’s more, Inventory Protector is very easy to use and manage. A brief look at the inventory protector feature is all you need to figure out how to use it.
As an Amazon seller, you know that every now and then, Amazon tends to damage or lose your stuff, which means you’re potentially losing stock which means you’re losing money. While Amazon is sensible enough to notify you through Amazon Seller Central when a refund is due, sometimes things fall through the cracks and you may be entitled to a refund and not realize it.
When you’ve been around the traps a little you’ll start to hear of horror stories where sellers have thousands of dollars in refunds that have gone unnoticed for several weeks or more, depending on how often they do manual reconciliations of their business.
Refund Genie works by using Amazon’s API and tracking refund information and recording instances where a refund is due. It also provides you with a template that you can copy and paste, which then fills in the blanks to email Amazon to provide evidence of your refund and to prompt Amazon to rectify the mistake. It’s a neat and useful way to semi-automate what is otherwise a mundane but vital part of running your business.
Automated email follow-up in eCommerce, when done well can create a memorable customer experience, generate repeat business and help build your brand.
Helium 10 Follow up is an all-singing and-dancing email automation tool, allowing you to create customizable email templates that get triggered at specific events.
With it, you can thank customers for their purchase, build a relationship with them, and promote other products from your Amazon business. It’s customizable, well-designed, easy to set up, and a great tool for gaining positive reviews and boosting the lifetime value of each customer.
Although it’s easy to use, don’t be fooled into thinking this part of your Amazon business will be a breeze. Even with the Follow-up tool and templates, it takes time to get things set up. But once things are up and running the process will run efficiently and you’ll be on your way to building your brand.
The Helium 10 Chrome Extension is a tool that you can use while you are browsing Amazon or Alibaba.
The Amazon extension for Chrome is an additional suite of tools that is separate from the Helium 10 dashboard. Use the Amazon Chrome Extension to help:
Installing the Helium 10 extension is FREE and takes only a few minutes to install on your browser. While it’s an included part of the paid plans, you can also access this (using limited searches) on the Free Plan.
Once installed it will give you access to a few extra tools like:
Helium 10 Xray for product research (reverse ASIN tool), keyword research, and access to the Alibaba supplier finder.
Demand Analyzer (accessed from Alibaba.com) to find the highest selling items on Amazon for a search term and estimated revenue generated. Helium 10 is the only Amazon seller service that offers this functionality on Alibaba’s website.
Inventory Levels to see a competitor’s stock levels. It’s a good way to see if a competitor is backing a certain product or gearing up for a big sales campaign.
The Profitability tool is essentially an Amazon FBA calculator, which is extremely useful for estimating profit margin based on certain key parameters like product costs, sale price, FBA fees, and cost of shipping.
Review Insights (previously known as Review Downloader) you can see reviews in bulk and do analysis to find pain points and gaps in descriptions for your own or competitor ASINs. You can learn more about this simple but effective Helium 10 tool in my article: 5 Strategies to Improve Amazon Best Seller Rank using Review Insights.
Listing Health Score to help identify gaps in listings where there may be opportunities to improve or optimize a listing.
ASIN Grabber to select bulk ASINs for further product or keyword research inside the Helium 10 dashboard.
Helium 10 Chrome Extension Widgets show historical sales volume and pricing fluctuations over time as well as other key data.
You can only see the widgets when the Amazon Chrome Extension is being used and because it’s layered on top of the listing it means that the data is all displayed on the one screen.
I like the easy functionality of the tool is great for quick Amazon product research. But its real potential is unleashed when combined with the Helium 10 dashboard tools for in-depth product and keyword research.
The two sets of tools are connected so jumping between the Chrome Extension and the Helium 10 dashboard tools is a breeze and data is transferred in just a click of a button!
I noticed recently that the Chrome Extension has been updated for Walmart Marketplace compatibility. Xray, Cerebro, Magnet and Profits are functional for Walmart third party sellers and gives you access to millions of Walmart Product IDs to help identify your next successful product, do keyword research and monitor profits.
If you’re both an FBA merchant and a Walmart 3rd party seller then it goes without saying that you’ll be best placed to make the most out of the full suite of Helium 10 apps.
Find out more about how Amazon and Walmart compare AND how they can make you more money together.
Myself and my team have been using Helium 10 for a while now and even doing this review article has prompted me to rethink about some of my product listings and where I could make improvements to my workflow to help me sell more.
Whilst I feel confident that Helium 10 is helping me to generate more income from my eCommerce business, I wanted to know if other users feel the same way. So, I read some of the Helium 10 reviews on www.reviews.io
So it's fair to say that the Helium 10 reviews are mostly positive and overall rated at 4.5 out of 5 stars. But even so, like with my own product research, I always like to take a closer look at any recent 1 and 2-star ratings. The three common things I noticed is that users commented on the following:
As for the users that enjoy the software, they say things like:
"Unequivocally a must-have for starters like myself."
“…..You still need to understand the data and react to it... BUT Helium 10 collects it for you in a fraction of the time. Don't know what we would do without Helium 10.”
“H10 is essential software used daily in managing my business. The customer service team is excellent at resolving technical issues. Always new features released that help us grow and scale our businesses.”
You’ve already seen a concise list of the pros and cons at the top of this article. But further down I’ve also expanded out my top 6 reasons for recommending this tool.
Helium 10 Academy is the go-to for Helium 10 Training! You absolutely won’t get the most out of the tools without going through the Academy training videos.
What I like best about Helium 10 Academy is that many of the video modules are instructed by Helium 10’s very own Director of Training, Bradley Sutton. What makes Bradley’s approach work so well is that he’s not just clicking on buttons and selecting random filters. He uses real-life examples of how the Helium tools can make a difference to your Amazon business.
Other great features of the Helium 10 training are:
First, let me mention the Helium 10 Blog. It’s a resource that has proved itself time and again With articles like “How to Make Passive Income on Amazon”, “How to Respond to Negative Feedback on Amazon” and “How to Rank a Product to Number 1 on Amazon”, there’s something useful for everyone.
Secondly, Helium 10 has a comprehensive Knowledge Base that is neatly organized into topic areas and has a useful search function. Most of the pedestrian-type issues you encounter can be easily resolved by taking some initiative and searching for the right Knowledge Base article.
The Blog is regularly updated with loads of new and relevant articles on a daily basis.
There have been recent April 2023 updates to the Helium 10 pricing.
Helium 10 is sold in five pricing tiers and each tier or plan gives you access to more functionality as the price increases. Whilst some people have said the Helium 10 price structure is a bit confusing, the multiple options also mean that there’s something to suit every budget and size of business.
See our Pricing Plans post a complete run down on what's included in each plan and all the ins and outs of Helium 10 costs.
We've broken down the Helium 10 subscription costs below.
The five pricing plans are:
There is also an Adtomic and Diamond Bundle which is: $449 a month
If you’re thinking about a paid plan, then Helium 10 Money Back Guarantee is also a deal sweetener. It’s a perfect alternative to the Free Plan because you can get access to more tools, take them for spin and if you get cold feet, just ask for your money back.
I took a closer look at the T&Cs and noted that there are no long-term commitments required for monthly plans. The money-back guarantee also seems easy enough to request, so long as cancellation occurs within the first 30-day period from the start date of the subscription.
So, you’ll be asking yourself “is Helium 10 worth it?”. Only you can answer that question. This article can take you some way in deciding if the Helium 10 platform can help your Amazon business. If you think it can, then a better question is probably is: which plan offers the best value?
If you’re new to Amazon FBA, then a Diamond Plan is probably going to be more than you can handle. The Starter Plan is a good way to learn, but you’ll likely jump up to the Platinium Plan once your products start selling.
But if you’re already an experienced seller or looking to create a solid brand, then the Platinum or Diamond Plan will fit the needs of your business.
If anything, the Helium 10 Free Plan is reasonably generous and allows you to get your feet wet. Some of the tools are only accessible for a limited time and other tools have a limited number of uses or functionality.
I don’t think you could run a successful FBA store on the Free Plan, But, if you’re being frugal then think about getting the free access whilst you go through the Academy training. Helping you trial the Helium 10 tools before you start paying to use them.
It’s not ideal, but a good way to save money until you’re set with some training under your belt.
For $39/ Month this is the perfect plan for entry-level users and gives full access to the Freedom Ticket Amazon FBA course (a $997 Value)
Aside from including many of the core tools, the best thing about this plan (and what I think is its true value) is that it includes access to Freedom Ticket Amazon Sellers Training. Refer to our Hustle Life Freedom Ticket Review if you want to learn more.
This is the most popular plan and seems to fit the needs of small to medium size FBA stores. The Helium 10 Platinum Plan is $99/month is one subscription giving you unlimited access to multiple powerful tools such as Trendster, Black Box, Cerebro, Scribble, Magnet and Frankenstein along with limited access to several of the other tools.
If you want to jump straight into this plan then we have an awesome discount code that will give you this package for $49.50 for the first month. Just use our exclusive discount code: THEHUSTLELIFE50 And of course, you also get access to the Freedom Ticket by Helium 10 course to help you start and grow your business on Amazon.
The Helium 10 Diamond Plan is distinctly different to the Platinum Plan in 3 ways:
It goes without saying this is the plan I use for my FBA businesses. The Platinum plan was great when I was starting out, but now that I have a small team, I need a multi-user plan. I haven’t ventured out into the Walmart marketplace, so I can’t talk about that it detail but the guys at Helium 10 think that it’s the next big thing:
"Walmart.com gets over 100,000,000 unique shoppers per month, yet there are only about 100,000 third-party sellers on the platform. Compare that to Amazon’s roughly 10 million sellers and it’s clear this opportunity for big sales and less competition is worth getting excited about!"- Helium 10
Much like with the core tools, the Helium 10 Walmart tools are designed to help you get more sales and maximize profits.
The Free, Starter, and Platinum Helium plans come with limited access for Walmart 3rd party sellers.
For those wanting to get serious with a Diamond Plan, then save 10% EVERY month with our exclusive Hustle Life discount code: THEHUSTLELIFE10
There are 3 additional bundle or add-on products that can be purchased separately once you’ve subscribed to one of the core subscription plans. These are:
One of the great things about being a Hustle Life contributor is that we get access to some sweet deals. Helium 10 coupons and discount codes are out there from time to time, and you should try and grab a deal when you see one.
If the timing is right, and Black Friday happens to be approaching you may be lucky enough to get an awesome deal. Check out our coverage of Helium 10's latest Black Friday offers.
We're also lucky enough to be able to offer our readers two special discount codes:
50% OFF Your First Month When You Use Code: THEHUSTLELIFE50
10% OFF Every Month When You Use Code: THEHUSTLELIFE10
Deals come and go but together with the 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee it should give you some confidence to at least give the software a test run.
Many people want to compare Helium 10 with Jungle Scout. Of course, if you’re selecting an FBA tool, then you want to make the right decision the first time around.
The common question asked; is Jungle Scout better than Helium 10? So, let’s get into Helium 10 vs Jungle Scout.
If you want an industry-leading comprehensive tool to find products and keywords, then you’re probably going to look closely at something like Jungle Scout. But Helium 10 has the edge to take care of your competitor intelligence, marketing, finances, and customer communications.
If you’re deciding between the two FBA tools, then do yourself a favor and don’t compare Helium 10 pricing with Jungle Scout pricing. The two tools don’t do exactly the same job, are not equal in scope and it’s like comparing apples and pears. The pricing structures also don’t match up, but dollar for dollar (on the mid-level plans) Helium 10 is probably more cost-effective because you get access to all the features you need to manage your FBA business.
Like Helium 10, Jungle Scout also offers a variety of features such as:
Learn more in our Hustle Life article about Jungle Scout.
Not really! Both Helium 10 and Jungle Scout do a variety of FBA tasks and I believe that either will help propel your FBA business to new levels. Our Hustle Life verdict is that each has a place and with so many Amazon sellers, there’s plenty of room in the marketplace for both.
There are some key differences between Helium 10 and Jungle Scout. I've done the hard work for you and picked out what I believe are the key considerations and defining points to help you pick the right tool:
These unique points of difference between Helium 10 and Jungle Scout may be important to you. So, you should select software based on your needs now and also where you plan on taking your business.
So, let me come clean. You may have noticed that I haven’t covered all of the Helium 10 tools in this article. Why? Because I don’t use them all! But, I have covered the main tools I use frequently and this review should give you a good idea about WHAT they do and HOW they can be used to fast-track your FBA business growth.
To go one step further, I’ve shared my very own Helium 10 Quick Guide so you can see for yourself how I use Helium 10 and the essential tools that I use regularly for my own FBA store. I'm sharing because as a novice user you might be confused about how to use Helium 10 and implement this mammoth tool kit. Other users might have a different workflow, so with over 30 tools to choose from, don't be afraid to experiment to find what works best for your business.
If you haven’t already figured out whether I think Helium 10 is worth it, then allow me to be candid in saying that for my business it 100% is!
Here is my list of the top 6 reasons to use Helium 10:
So, after what has been a herculean-sized review; I want to keep my final round up short and sweet. I would agree with some of the 1 and 2-star reviews seen above. There are certainly improvements that can be made and it is a large suite that requires time to train and become familiar with. But, overall, like the majority of people, I would also give the software 4.5 out of 5 stars.
I personally just feel that the time saving, reliability of the data, and convenience of one insanely powerful integrated package to run my Amazon FBA business, makes the decision to use Helium 10 a no-brainer for me!

Cerebro and Magnet are different in that you start your keyword research from either an ASIN (Cerebro) or from a keyword (Magnet).
Cerebro is a competitor keyword research tool and focuses more on the keywords for which a product is already ranking near the top in customer search results. This will give you insights into a competitor’s keyword strategy.
Magnet keyword research will trigger a broad search for related and relevant keywords. The results you get from Magnet could be several thousand keywords and are suggestions to help create powerful listings so customers can find your products.

The Freedom Ticket course is a Complete ‘A to Z’ Amazon Seller Education. It’s all about how to sell on Amazon and how to ace the Amazon FBA business. The course is a span of 8 weeks of training (over 40 hours), with videos, review slides, written notes, and of course the fully-featured Helium 10 software.
The course is sold at $997.00. But most people get Freedom Ticket absolutely free when they purchase Helium 10’s Platinum Plan at $99 a month. If you want to learn more about Freedom Ticket then please take a look at our review article.
Helium 10 Academy is focused on the Helium 10 software tools and apps and has tutorial videos and lessons on how to use the software. The training is completely Free!

In my experience, issues get resolved quicker when I’ve taken the time to write a good description and when I’ve taken screenshots and attached them to my ticket request.
I’ve included a link here in case you need to make contact.
Access is very limited with the Free plan. The Free plan is only to get a taster. All other paid plans (including the Starter plan) give full access to the Chrome Extension. This is great news for both Amazon.com and Walmart sellers.
Absolutely not! Helium 10 is one of several types of software available to Amazon sellers. You can also choose to use just the dashboard within Amazon Seller Central. The golden rule is that software is meant to serve a purpose. If it can help you, and you can save time, increase sales, improve your products, achieve better customer satisfaction, and build a brand, then software like Helium 10 can be worth it. Otherwise, don’t spend money if you don’t have to.
