→ Research Category Sales Velocity: Analyze top sellers in your category using tools like Helium 10 to estimate the number of sales needed for the badge.
→ Price Adjustment Strategy: Launch at a competitive price to generate sales, then gradually increase the price after establishing momentum.
→ Case Study: Smudge Kits: Steven shares his experience launching smudge kits, achieving the New Release Badge, and maintaining a high ranking with price adjustments.
