My fingers are sore from coding so much. Michael, head of ideas has been pacing non stop chewing his nails, the interns have been up for the last 72 hours.
We're launching search term tools. Today.
Here's some of the free ones!
Keyword Detective takes a brand and you find competing brands and what search terms they are winning (or losing!). FYI, these work better on a computer than on mobile.
Relevancy Quadrant takes a product and then finds the most relevant search terms and puts on a chart with search volume as the Y axis.
We will continue to innovate on the current landscape of tools making sure that you have an easier time building a success Amazon business. If you had a dream tool that we could build, what would it be??
Now for the rest of the news.
Reports are that Amazon is going to have a second Prime-exclusive event. This looks very wise on their part. It's already one of the biggest internet events ever. Capture it with the holiday fever.
A great article on how manufacturers are creating many brands of similar (the same!) products. This has an effect of crowding a search result and not allowing for unique offerings.
Prime is the lifeblood of Amazon. The EU wants it to be easy to cancel. These subscription services sure can be sketchy.
With over 20,000 subscribers to our newsletter, and the trust that has taken years to earn. No one covers Amazon like we do. We have new sellers, Aggregators, Agencies, Wholesale and Private label all tuning in and responding. If you'd like to advertise, we allow one sponsored post per newsletter. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org (remember, our ideas guy).
On the 1st of September, Amazon is moving everyone over to "Send to Amazon". I have heard from many that are not happy about the new shipment workflow. It's particularly unfriendly to big sellers and there's no option currently for a flat file upload.
