Now that Amazon has launched in Australia, brands should be scrambling to get their products listed on the site. But once you’ve listed your products, what more can you do to gain an edge over the competition and maximise sales?
The answer is optimisation. In this article, I look at the three key optimisation areas with specific insights into best practice strategies to maximise your success in the Amazon Marketplace.
When you’re generating leads online you generally setup conversion tracking and measure and optimise every campaign you’re running. Over time, you cut the poor performing campaigns and allocate budgets to the channels delivering the lowest cost per conversion. This strategy results in your cost per lead decreasing month-on-month, which is great.
But there’s one element that a lot of companies are missing when running campaigns in this way, and that is lead quality.
Amazon Marketplace is a service that thousands of businesses around the world have signed up for, which allows brands to list their products directly to consumers on Amazon.com (alongside Amazon’s own products) for a small fee. The brand can either organise shipping, returns and customer service themselves, or they can take part in Fulfilment by Amazon – a service that allows companies to ship their items in bulk directly to Amazon and for a fee, have them take care of everything.
