About This Episode

A vital factor in setting your brand up for success on Amazon is to enroll in Amazon’s brand registry program. There is one main thing you need in order to get approved for brand registry, a registered trademark. Not the ™ but the actual ®, along with packaging that displays your brand name.

Another way is to set up a beautiful amazing Amazon Storefront page to represent your brand to its fullest potential. It’s a great way to get creative on how to deliver your brand message to customers, along with highlighting your full product catalog and other resources that your business offers to customers. Plus you get access to unique analytics features to view where your customers are coming from, which pages are most popular and what products convert the best.

People buy from emotion, not necessarily out of need. Using the Amazon Storefront feature is a great opportunity to let customers know that you are a small business and what mission statement is to help them.

A+ content is another helpful tool that Amazon’s Brand Registry program allows you to utilize on the product descriptions itself. Plus, if you’re on mobile, it displays much higher on your product detail page than if you’re on a desktop, where it tends to get buried.

If you’re running ad campaigns to your products (which you should be!), Amazon’s Brand Registry program allows you to use utilize Sponsored Brand Ads. These give you ad placements right at the top of the search results page, which tend to be the highest converting ads on the platform.

You can also take advantage of Amazon’s new display ad placements (DSP) where you can advertise for your Amazon listings off of Amazon.com. This is a new feature from Amazon for 3rd party sellers through Amazon Seller Central but definitely something worth while to test if you have a high enough budget to support it. Specific strategies and examples for how to utilize ads to grow your sales are also discussed.
