Amazon Storefronts is a program that allows shoppers to buy products exclusively from the almost 20,000 small to mid sized merchants. Amazon storefronts is a replacement for Amazon pages while offering more content, options and flexibility for many brand owners.
To increase traffic to your Amazon store, there are a couple of things you can do to help that.
Optimizing your Amazon storefront is one of the first things you can do to increase traffic. Make sure everything is spelled correctly on your page, make sure you are using the appropriate and relevant keywords. You want to make sure everything is filled out on your storefront, don’t leave anything empty.
When you visit someone’s storefront, the first thing you see is their header photo. You want to make sure that the header photo is high quality, eye catching and includes your brand name. Below is a great example of a high quality, eye catching header photo.
The font is easy to read and it relates to their products.
If you’ve been selling on Amazon for a while, you know one of the most important parts of a listing is the title description. Your title SEO is what will link your product to your Amazon store. You should include these things in your product title:
- Brand name
- Size of the product
- Color of the product
- Use of the product
- Product features that differentiate your products from others
- Quantity of product (if necessary)
Above, just by reading the title you know the brand, use of product, size of product and product features. In this case, color isn’t necessary but this a great example of what your title should look like. By putting your brand name at the beginning, you are already differentiating yourself from every other listing.
Having high quality product photo will increase traffic to your Amazon store if they stand out from your competitors. Instead of having the same old white background, you can try switching it up! Product photo differentiation is one way to make your product stand out from everyone else’s. Use some color in your photos, show the extras, showcase the quality of the product. You can even add a surprising bonus to the photos to make it more appealing. You can click here to watch our video on product photo differentiation.
As you can see, this company did a great job by differentiating their photos from the typical white backdrop. They use a background that relates to the product perfectly. Since it is a detox bath scrub or a conditioner, they put the product in the bathroom, which is where it would be used. They even used a main ingredient as a background which is pretty clever and will definitely draw attention to it.
On your Amazon Storefront page, you have an option to add a video. This video should be an overview of your brand. Things you could include in this video could be; how the product was made, what kind of ingredients are in your product, how it works, why you created it, etc. This is a great way to get a customer’s attention visually. Not only can you add this to your Amazon storefront page, you can also use this as a video ad if it fits the requirements.
If you haven’t tried it already, paying for ads to run on Amazon is one of the top ways to drive traffic to your Amazon storefront. Your ads should include your brand name and at least three of your top products. Below is an example of an Ad for the Storefront company Opps.
