Long gone are the days when Amazon sellers didn’t have the tools they needed to build brand equity and promote shopper loyalty.
Amazon Stores is quickly shifting from a trending Amazon feature to the new brand essential to succeed on the Marketplace.
Not only do these creative features help to improve the aesthetics of brands on the Marketplace – they also provide new opportunities to drive traffic (on and off Amazon) to a brand’s entire catalog.
If you’re actively trying to provide a curated collection of your brand’s products in a customized, brand-centric, shopping experience, Amazon Stores is where you should be investing your marketing dollars.
Don’t believe us? We’ve got 6 stunning Amazon Store examples to prove it.
What is an Amazon Store?
In simple terms, Amazon Stores provide an enhanced brand-centric shopping experience on Amazon in desktop and mobile platforms.
The main benefit of Amazon Stores is to provide customized content to potential customers and to introduce prospective customers to your brand.
Each page gives brands the opportunity to design it ‘your way’ with lots of supportive content and freedom. It’s basically like creating your own ecommerce website on Amazon.
But the benefits of implementing an Amazon Store extend far beyond Amazon’s ecosystem.
Driving Facebook & Google to Your Amazon Store
With recent improvements to Amazon Stores – it’s now possible to effectively track how well driving off-Amazon (including Facebook, Instagram, & Google) traffic to Amazon performs.
“The reason this is coming up now is because of the new tracking ability which exists in Amazon Stores Insights”, Pat Petriello, Head of Marketplace at CPC Strategy said.
“Amazon Store Insights should allow us to better quantify how that traffic that we’re sending performs. In the past, even though you could send traffic from Facebook to Amazon, you couldn’t track traffic – meaning you couldn’t quantify how effective the strategy was.”
Today, it’s a different story.
Brands with a Store are now in a prime position to capture shopper demand off of Amazon.
