How do you keep track of listings changes? Exists a functional app? How can you determine whether changes result in more sales or sessions?

Hello everybody
I've had a problem with this for a while now. I currently track listing changes manually using a standard Excel spreadsheet, which is unreliable and time-consuming, as you are aware if you do the same.

I searched for many Amazon Advertising apps, but I didn't come across anything noteworthy. All the individual apps keep track of particular things like reviews and feedback, and the bindwise app also keeps track of changes to titles, descriptions, and other things. You receive these change alerts by email, which is a useless format, nevertheless. Additionally, "amazon choice" and changes to it, along with other badges and ongoing promotions, are very significant things that we would need to track and I have been unable to locate anything on.
To input the data into Excel, I would prefer to be able to export the information as a csv file.

Of course, the ultimate objective is to increase or retain sales. Therefore, recording changes is just the beginning. In a perfect world, I would like an app that also compares listing modifications to changes in sales, trying to identify the listing changes that correlate with sales the most and determining whether the sales changes are statistically significant or just regular daily variation.

Currently, I am manually tracking changes and comparing them with sales changes, which takes a lot of time and is annoying. The "Amazon choice" label has a significant impact on our sales, but I track it manually, which means I occasionally notice changes a couple of days too late.

Additionally, it's difficult to tell from a conventional graph whether a change was statistically significant for better or worse, so I have to use Excel and plug everything in. At the end of the day, we merely lack the time to consistently do this for all of the listings.

Has anyone tried to accomplish this or find a solution? Any recommendations for apps or your method of operation?

I'm so annoyed by this that I'm considering having an app made for it. But it won't be inexpensive. (mod edit)

Thank you for any advice!

Amazon is a huge platform that offers many different types of services. One of the most popular is Amazon Seller Central, which allows you to sell your products on Amazon. We’ve written about how to use Amazon Seller Central for your business before and it’s an excellent way to get started selling on Amazon. You can take https://www.lifehacker.com.au/2019/03/11-ways-to-improve-productivity-without-coffee-infographic/ from skilled writers. Once you have your products listed on Amazon, there are many ways to track how they are performing. The main method is through the Seller Central dashboard, which updates every 24 hours with sales information, but there are also other tools that can give you more detailed information.
