Importance of Marketing

Effective marketing strategies are crucial for driving traffic to your product listings and increasing sales. Amazon provides various tools and techniques to help sellers promote their products.

Key Marketing Strategies

Amazon Advertising:

  • Sponsored Products: Ads that appear in search results and on product pages. These are pay-per-click (PPC) ads, meaning you pay only when a customer clicks on your ad.
  • Sponsored Brands: Ads that feature your brand logo, a custom headline, and multiple products. These appear in search results.
  • Sponsored Display: Ads that target customers both on and off Amazon based on their shopping behavior.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO):

  • Use relevant keywords in your product titles, descriptions, and backend search terms.
  • Optimize your listings to improve organic search ranking.

Promotions and Deals:

  • Coupons: Offer discounts via clickable coupons on your product listings.
  • Lightning Deals: Time-limited promotions featured on Amazon’s “Deals” page.
  • Subscribe & Save: Offer discounts to customers who subscribe for regular deliveries.

Customer Reviews and Ratings:

  • Encourage satisfied customers to leave positive reviews.
  • Respond to customer feedback promptly to maintain good ratings.

Enhanced Brand Content (EBC)/A+ Content:

  • Available for brand-registered sellers, this allows you to add rich content (images, text, videos) to your product descriptions to enhance the shopping experience.

Practical Example

Imagine you want to promote your “Cozy Candle Creations” lavender and vanilla scented candle. Here’s how you might utilize these strategies:

Amazon Advertising:

  • Create a Sponsored Products campaign targeting keywords like “scented candles” and “lavender candles.”
  • Set up a Sponsored Brands campaign featuring multiple scents from your candle line.


  • Optimize your product listing with keywords: “handmade candles,” “eco-friendly candles,” “vanilla candles.”
  • Ensure your product description and bullet points contain these keywords naturally.

Promotions and Deals:

  • Offer a 10% discount coupon for first-time buyers.
  • Schedule a Lightning Deal during the holiday season to attract more buyers.

Customer Reviews and Ratings:

  • Follow up with customers post-purchase to ask for feedback and reviews.
  • Address any negative reviews with solutions and thank customers for positive feedback.

Enhanced Brand Content:

  • Create an A+ Content page with professional images, a detailed description of your candle-making process, and customer testimonials.
