The Smart Stick Thermometer: How a Twist on a Classic Product Opened It Up to a New Market

If you care about the hottest trends in science and technology, you can use that passion to profit on Amazon.

You just have to know what to look for.

For example, take Kinsa’s Smart Stick Thermometers.

Even if you haven’t used one before, the name tells you all you need to know. These thermometers come with a free smartphone app.

The app tells you more than just your temperature. It gives you basic medical advice, as well as information about medicines you can take.

In particular, new parents need extra help when it comes to dealing with medical problems. When your baby gets a fever, it can be hard to figure out what to do.

Calling the pediatrician isn’t always possible. You can go online for advice, but there’s contradictory information out there.

The Kinsa app can steer you in the right direction. You can enter your baby’s weight and age to calculate the right dosage.

Kinsa’s version isn’t the only one out there anymore. If you go on Amazon, you’ll find a few different options.

What does this mean for Amazon sellers?

The smart stick thermometer was first released back in 2016. If you paid attention, you could immediately recognize that this innovation was going to be huge.

The idea behind the thermometer was to stop the spread of disease during the Rio Olympics. But marketing this to new parents specifically is a good way to boost business.

That’s your job as an Amazon seller. You have to get inside people’s heads and figure out their needs.

But this is a little tricky to do, especially when you’re starting out. Then, once you get the hang of it, it’s easy!
