4 Myths About Selling On Amazon
The reality of selling on Amazon is that in a moment, people can make a buying decision. They are coming to amazon to price check, look at reviews, or find a gift. Those searching for a “gift for dad” and are just one click away from buying the item. In Amazon, it’s just a different type of SEO, a different type of search.
Your listings needs to be optimized for Amazonian behavior. Don’t miss the boat when it comes to selling on amazon.
Here are some
COMMON MYTHS about selling on Amazon:
JUST LIST YOUR PRODUCTS ON AMAZON & YOU ARE BASICALLY DONE
One of the biggest misconceptions about selling on Amazon is that you just need to list your products and the sales will come rolling in. You will need to do much more than that in order to get good results. You need great photography, infographics, great SEO and tell the story of your brand. If people are searching “gifts for dad” then sellers need to have diverse advertisements that are targeted towards gifts for dad. These types of things are paramount for creating momentum and sales velocity on Amazon.
So, don't stop at just getting your product listed. Make sure you do everything to push sales, push velocity, create momentum and continue to grow your product's rankings in Amazon.
It’s all about growing the ranking of your product on Amazon. That's how you get the sales.
MY PRODUCT IS NOT A GOOD FIT FOR AMAZON
This is not true! If you have a product that has sold online, it’s a good fit for Amazon. Just find an Amazon marketing agency that can work with you through your brand's specific challenges. I’ve seen so many brands miss the mark when it comes to launching, and they could have been ahead of everyone else, but they missed the boat and now everyone is ahead of them. We have worked with brands that didn't have a competitor, and we debated it, decided to launch, and in our first year we did 100k. What would they have done if they had not seized the opportunity?
GROWING YOUR AMAZON SALES WILL CANNIBALIZE YOUR WEBSITE SALES
Many businesses are operating in fear about this point, and they are risking their business’s health because they believe in this myth.
Most businesses are operating with the belief that if they do grow their Amazon sales, they'll lose control, and so they end up putting all of their eggs in one website basket. They are missing a huge opportunity for sales. That’s why

You need to be growing 3 things to create better branding: your website, your social media, and your Amazon marketplace. Some people put all of their focus on their website, ignoring Amazon, and that is simply a dying strategy in today's environment.
What makes sense today is to build one cohesive ecosystem for your brand. Your customer should be able to go from your website. look up price matches on Amazon and see the same branding and quality. Your goal should always be serving your customer the best way that you can.
