3 Steps to Succeeding as an Amazon Seller

Amazon is the top site for selling and buying in America.

This marketplace gives you the chance to buy or sell nearly everything possible, with the only limit being your ability to market yourself.  This site is designed to sell as much as possible to as many people as can be attracted to a website.

You can make this work.

Here are the top three steps to finding success as an Amazon seller!  Follow through, and your ratings and sales will be up in no time!

Set Your Product Apart from Competition

There are dozens of different types of each item available for sale on Amazon.  You may think your product is unique, and you may see how it's set apart, but for many customers, that distinction is hard to see. Put your company apart by using an Amazon keyword tool so that your product shows up in their search results.

You can also push your product forward in the minds of customers by ensuring your pictures are eye-catching.  Don't use images similar to other listings. Set yours apart with either style of clarity.  There's no reason your product should be drowned out in a sea of photos just like it.

Price Competitively, But Make A Profit

It’s no secret that shoppers look for the lowest prices they can find.  Seeking out options they can get for the least money spent is a natural part of being consumers.  Unfortunately, many sellers leave them in the tight spot of having to figure out how to price competitively.  The rule of thumb to follow is never charged more than your average demographic can afford- or less than they'd be willing to pay.  Although you may feel like your competitors are making more sales by keeping their prices low- they're making less money this way.  Don't throw away your income, keep your costs steady; build up a good number of honest customers' reviews, and show that your products are worth the expense.  If you vary your prices too much, your customers will be able to see that and either wait for you to lower them again to purchase or go to a more reliable seller.

Keep Track of Customers And Reviews

The worst thing you could do for your company is to let your reviews and customers go without checking in on them.  Check your reviews multiple times a day, or hire a customer service agent who can do it for you.  Keep quick and near-constant contact if customers have questions, and be honest when answering.

It's also essential to respond to any low reviews and try to offer solutions.  Customers can change their ratings on Amazon, and a good customer service interaction could be all they need to change their minds.  Talk your customers through any fixes, repairs, or replacements, and then, when you're done dazzling them, ask if they'll reconsider their review.  This plan works more often than not and will repair any bad ratings you may have gotten before.
