12 Advanced Marketing Strategies for Amazon Sellers

Once you’ve mastered basic marketing strategies like optimising keywords, engaging in social media and auto-repricing, it’s time to move onto more advanced techniques. RepricerExpress has you covered with twelve of the top ones you need to know for 2019.   1. Injecting Emotion into Your Images Your main image should be just the product on a white background, but when it comes to the secondary images, it’s time to let loose a bit — and forget about the usual tips of shooting in natural light or shooting multiple angles. We’re talking about things like: Comparisons between your product’s (superiority) and a competitor’s (inferiority). Hi-res (minimum of 1,000 x 1,000) so buyers can zoom and scroll over it. Sizing charts and product labels. Lifestyle/action images featuring different kinds of users (so every buyer can imagine themselves using it).   2. Doing Testing on Images to Select the Best Ones Be scientific by swapping out just one image a week so you can isolate its metrics. Then, track sessions, sales, conversion rate and revenue each week you’re changing images until you find the combination that works best.

5 Amazon Pricing Tactics for Private Label Sellers

At RepricerExpress, we know that pricing rules require thought and nuance, with no one rule applicable to all situations. If you’re a private label seller, we’ve got 5 of the best tactics you can use when setting your pricing rules to ensure the best odds of making conversions and winning a Buy Box.   1. Differentiate Between Margin and Markup Markup is how much cost you add to the product’s initial cost to arrive at the final selling price. For example, if you paid $5 for a gadget, you could add a $5 markup and the final price would be $10. Margin, on the other hand, is what you’re left with once you subtract what you paid for the product from what the buyer paid for it. Using the same prices as before, the buyer’s price would be $10, what you paid for the product would be $5, and your profit margin would be $5. The two are not the same, even though we used the same numbers for each example. Remember to treat them as the different terms that they are.   2. Set

5 Great Tips to Increase Amazon Sales in Q1 2019

The holiday rush is over and you can relax after all the effort you’ve put in for 2018. But it’s no time to get complacent, as you’ve got to focus on Amazon sales for Q1 now. To keep the momentum going, RepricerExpress has five tips you can use in 2019.   1. Leverage Q4 Sales Into Making Q1 Successful If you’ve done everything right, then your Q4 will have been your most successful quarter of 2019. And to keep the momentum building, reinvest the profits you made in Q4 into Q1 so you can keep sales high over the long-term. It’s tempting to put that money into a savings account — while you should put some money into there, you should also put some profits into the next quarter. There will be buyers who want to get a super early start on next year’s holidays, there will be buyers who missed the boat on 2018s holiday specials, and there will be buyers who will be looking to make use of the Amazon gift cards they got as presents. Being ready for those sales means you
