2. Product Catalog

Just like you need a salesman at a local store to persuade your customers to buy your product, you need a product catalog for your online business. It takes care of providing all the details to the customers to help them buy your products.

Having a catalog is easy. Here’s what you need to focus on:

● Create a simple, easy to understand product page title.
● Add all details about the product like product color, size, specifications, who/where can it be used, etc.
● Every Amazon product needs at least one image. The main image is what your customers see while searching. So make sure you add high-quality, information-rich images that are clear and easy to understand. Amazon has general image standards to help you while uploading product images. You can also add product videos to show how it works.
● It may not be possible to include every detail in the product description. You should add frequently asked questions (FAQs) to help your customers make a buying decision.

4. Sponsored Products

The fastest way to get visibility to your product and gain customer’s attention is through advertising. At Amazon, we feature sponsored products through which your product gets discovered on more visible places like the first page of search results and related product detail pages. This makes it easy for any customer to find your product, which may increase your chances of landing a new sale.

Amazon ads are cost per click. Running them is in your hands as you get to decide the budget and choose how much to bid per click. Your bidding can be as low as Re. 1. Once you launch your ads, you can analyze their performance metrics and can modify accordingly for more sales.

● You can set different types of promotions like offering a discounted rate for your product or applying a ‘Buy One Get One Free’ deal.
