  • Conduct competitive analysis: Before launching a product, it’s important to research and analyze the competition in the specific category. Tools like Jungle Scout or Helium 10 can provide sales estimates and insights into market size.
  • Optimize listing for success: A strong listing with high conversion rates is vital. Optimize product photos by including unique selling points (USPs) as text overlays. Utilize A+ content and videos to enhance the listing and improve conversion rates.
  • Monitoring unit session percentages (Conversion rate) and comparing them to category averages can indicate potential issues with the listing that need to be addressed.
  • Allocate ad spend strategically: Advertising spending is essential for improving organic rankings. Optimizing advertising campaigns and allocating the budget effectively will help increase organic visibility and drive sales.
  • Organic sales on Amazon are driven by two main factors: relevancy score and competitiveness of search terms.
  • Driving external traffic to Amazon can be effective for brand building and conversion, even with fewer reviews.

Quote of the Show:
