Midyear sales figures for the video game industry show two things — the staying power of hot holiday sellers and which spring releases have found a loyal audience. While the positions shift (and many titles fall off the charts) once the holiday months arrive, they’re a good barometer of publisher health.
Amazon is the widely acknowledged leader of online sales. Its lead is based to a large extent on the huge audience that goes to its site; the popularity of its Prime program, which offers both free shipping and a huge video on demand streaming video content library; its discounts; and its ability to launch and successfully promote its own consumers electronics products, the most recent of which are Fire Stick TV, Echo Dot and several devices powered by its Alexa “intelligent personal assistant.”
This conveniently small car mount attaches to your dashboard and holds your phone in place so you can better check GPS, quickly control music, or make calls and texts in a safer, more convenient way.
PlayStation Store credit was the number one (and two) top seller on Amazon, however. Amazon lists the $20 PlayStation Store gift card, which can be used to purchase PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita games as the number one video game item customers bought in 2017.

Rankings for this midyear list were taken from sales figures from January through the end of April, the most recent reporting period for market researcher The NPD Group. Due to agreements with publishers, NPD does not publicly release hard sales numbers — but the rankings show that players are eager for new experiences — while they’re not quite ready to let go of some old favorites.
“I love my new Paperwhite Kindle. I’ve been using an aging keyboard Kindle 2, waiting for a version with a built-in light like this. Amazon really got it right with the light on this one.” – Chad Bush, Amazon reviewer
Also known as ‘sales rank’, Amazon ranks products on an hourly basis according to how much time has elapsed since one was last sold. So if an item has just been sold, it’ll have a pretty high ranking, as opposed to something that’s been languishing for that whole hour.
Some items are also less expensive for customers with Prime subscriptions. When there is more than one price for an item, we used the base price. One reason for varying prices for the same item is that several vendors may sell them. Amazon updates all best-seller lists once an hour, although based on our observations, the lists do not change much hour-to-hour.
We may live in a mobile-obsessed world, but it turns out the best-selling consumer-electronics gadget on Amazon isn’t made by Apple or Samsung. Neither is it a Kindle—which is kind of shocking, given that Amazon promotes its own tablets and e-readers right on its own home page.

Amazon’s Unlimited Music deal cracking the top 10 isn’t a surprise to any of us since they discounted the service so heavily. Using it, you can stream songs, download them, make and share playlists, or listen to some of Amazon’s pre-made options. With a library of “tens of millions” of songs, there’s a good chance you’ll have access to the music you like, with the ability to discover a lot of new music.
Just like last year, we’ve compiled a list of the top-selling products from Insider Picks readers on Prime Day 2017. The news is good: You guys still like tech, that Internet-famous Instant Pot cooker, and a great pair of headphones for less. You also like knowing your ancestry and having a memory card or extender cable on deck.
However, the list of books sold according to ranking do not tally at all. According to the ranking scales I should be selling hundreds per day but that is not happening at all and all I have is a Bestsellers ranking with few sales. It really does not make sense as this is a hot genre.
Is there a way to rank top US sellers within each marketplace – UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, India, Japan and China? I am willing to query on my own, I just do not know where to start. Thanks!
The Dot is the smallest of the Amazon Echo devices, but it has all the capabilities of the bigger products. Plus, it’s the only one that can connect to external speakers through a wire or Bluetooth, and it’s small enough to stack pretty much anywhere or keep out of sight.
Although sellers on Amazon.co.uk have taken three of the top five slots this year, the list overall is still dominated by Amazon.com, with 584 sellers (551 last year). The UK is next with 205 sellers (234 last year). The US’s gain of 33 sellers in the top 1,000 is very close to the UK’s loss of 29 sellers.
Russian President Vladimir Putin bathes in an ice-cold water on Epiphany near St. Nilus Stolobensky Monastery on Lake Seliger in Svetlitsa village, Russia. Thousands of Russian Orthodox Church followers will plunge into icy rivers and ponds across the country to mark Epiphany, cleansing themselves with water deemed holy for the day.
I was hooked. It didn’t matter the numbers could be meaningless because they accounted for only one bookseller or because I couldn’t be sure in relationship to what I was being ranked. It didn’t matter that the numbers were as fleeting as my recent obsession with chocolate mint gum, which ended when I tasted it.
Give your VPCs out to friends and family in exchange for reviews/sales metrics. This is also an awesome hack, which most of our clients use with great success. You can set up a VPC and discount your product down to your total costs (so you’re not taking a loss on each sale, but breaking even). Then give this VPC out to friends and family, and have them buy it through Amazon on their own. Most people will be ecstatic to receive such a deeply discounted product, and you’ll get a ‘Verified Purchase’ review – as well as a boost in your initial sales data!

I guess my learnings have been innital sales can give you the positioning that you need to attract future sales and its great to have a plan for this. Now I’ve promoted this organically I’m starting to settle into retargeting and PPC adverts to get a consistent awareness out.
