Get Ahead by Planning Ahead

Entrepreneurs often fall into the trap of last-minute adjustments. However, to ensure success, a well-structured strategy is essential. Start at least six weeks ahead of your anticipated Super Bowl moment, whether it’s Prime Day, holidays, or a category-specific high season like Back to School for Office Products. This lead time will ensure that your launch date is meticulously set, allowing you to fully prepare for the event.

Want to learn more? Check out our 6 Minutes with Carbon6 interview with Joie Roberts from Amazon Insiders about how to prepare for your Super Bowl moment: 

Here are some ways you can prepare yourself for a successful selling campaign: 

1. Harness the Power of Influencers and External Traffic

In the digital age, influencer partnerships have transformed marketing dynamics. The shift in 2020 underscores their significance, with Amazon's algorithm rewarding such collaborations. 

Integrating influencers strategically can exponentially amplify your product's visibility, helping you stand out in the crowded marketplace. Moreover, external traffic, particularly from platforms like Google, can significantly impact Amazon traffic. Platforms like PixelMe empower sellers to venture into off-Amazon advertising, elevating their rankings and conversion rates.

2. Optimize for Conversion, Not Just Clicks

Beyond attracting visitors, converting them into customers is the ultimate goal. The key lies in optimizing your Amazon listings for conversions. Visual content, such as images and videos depicting product usage in real-life scenarios, can evoke emotions that drive purchases. By ensuring that your listing resonates emotionally with potential buyers, you pave the way for higher conversion rates.

Another way to increase conversions? Optimize your keyword strategy for conversion, not just clicks. With PixelMe's patent-pending technology, you can identify the highest-opportunity keywords with the most likelihood of conversion for your listing.

3. Strategically Utilize PPC and Google Ads

The approach to pay-per-click (PPC) and Google Ads should differ when gearing up for a Super Bowl moment. Rather than just tracking conversions, the focus should be on enhancing organic rank and lowering PPC costs. Leveraging Google Ads and its keyword planner can be instrumental in achieving these goals. By directing external traffic through Google Ads, you enhance your Amazon listing's visibility and organic rank.

4. Manage Inventory with Intelligence to Avoid Overstock and Stockout

Preparing for significant sales surges necessitates meticulous inventory management. The importance of being equipped to meet the demand cannot be overstated. Sellers must anticipate potential stock shortages and be ready to employ external traffic strategies to promptly restore listing performance, ensuring a seamless shopping experience for customers.

Aligning your inventory with your marketing strategy is important all-year round, but especially during high-selling seasons. Check out this free inventory planner from SoStocked to learn more about how you can stay in stock and avoid stockout.

5. Don’t Let Trends Get the Best of You

In the midst of preparations, the allure of new marketing trends can be distracting. Sellers must guard against the "shiny object syndrome." Instead of succumbing to multiple changes at once, focus on implementing one new variable at a time. This pragmatic approach allows for comprehensive testing and tracking, ensuring that each adjustment contributes meaningfully to your success.

The best way to make the most of your data? Invest in cutting edge data software like D8aDriven. D8aDriven sends weekly executive summaries and action items based on millions of data points to keep you focused on actionable changes that align with your custom KPIs.
