SnaxShot

Impeccable CPG (consumer packaged goods) curation, with identification of trends far before they hit the mainstream so they can be applied across many industries. My favorite use of this tool is looking at packaging and product design to consider for new styles.

 Case study after case study from @alexgarcia_atx and friends on every marketing concept imaginable. Anytime I’m looking for a platform strategy or growth idea, this is where I start.

 

JungleScout (paid)

Sophisticated Amazon product research tool that includes an “Opportunity Finder” so you can discover high-volume, low-competition search terms. It also gives great overall Amazon data by category on existing products. Great for finding existing winners for new channels.

 

Pinterest

If you plug in enough search terms, the algorithm on Pinterest is amazing. I searched for retail displays to build a new board, and it just continued to serve me more and more interesting ideas. Use this as an inspiration source!

 

Drop Point (paid)

Drop Point aggregates current and legacy ads on social media with the ability to search by product keyword for $5/m. See ads and product ideas for what’s happening in DTC.

Virgil Abloh “open sourced” a good deal of the brand creative process, and simple things like trademarking and store setup. There’s also lots of his inspiration links along the way.
