What is Amazon Listing Optimization?

If a customer is searching for a product on Amazon — cookware, for example — they’re likely to select a pot or pan featured on the first page of their search results. They’ll never see the thousands of other products because the first page of results met their needs before they even had to click to the second page.

According to Amazon’s data, 70% of users only view the products on the first page. As an Amazon seller, you want your product to rank on that page so that people will actually see it.

Amazon listing optimization is a course of deliberate actions meant to help your product listing rank on the first page for relevant search terms. These actions may include tracking keywords, optimizing content such as photos, title, and description, and improving your seller reputation. Because selling on Amazon is a tremendously competitive online marketplace, ranking for relevant terms can often be difficult.

How to Improve Your E-commerce Photos

If a picture is worth a thousand words, it’s especially true when it comes to e-commerce photos. The first thing your potential customers will look at in your products listings are the photos you’ve included.

Before a customer purchases your product, they want to know what it looks like. Beyond that, they want to get a sense of the product’s size, what it will feel like, and how it will fit into their life. Since your customers are shopping online, they obviously can’t experience the product in real life first. Your product photography must answer all those questions for your customers, convincing them that this is the right item for them.

Here are ten tips for improving your e-commerce photos and creating more sales.

What Is E-commerce Optimization and Why Does It Matter?

When online shoppers land on your product page, they decide within seconds whether to browse or close the tab. How can you make sure they don’t slip away? Aside from having a quality product, you need to focus on e-commerce optimization.

E-commerce optimization is the process by which you critically examine all aspects of your website’s product listings, then experiment with changes that could boost sales and affect other key performance indicators (KPIs). To keep track of how these changes affect your e-commerce site, you’ll want to conduct A/B testing. Also known as split testing, this process enables you to compare two versions of a website to track which one performs best.
