Amazon has launched a new feature where you can add a video to your Amazon product listing which will help your business increase sales conversion. According to recent statistics, 45% of people watch more than an hour of Facebook or YouTube videos a week, and 51% of marketing professionals worldwide name video as the type of content with the best ROI.
Pro Tip: This feature is only open to professional sellers who have been approved as brand owners through Amazon Brand Registry Program.
Brands on Amazon from various categories and sizes are already leveraging this new Amazon video listing feature. Check out the example from Invicta below,
So why is this update so important for Amazon sellers? Here are five reasons why sellers should take advantage of this feature:
There are various types of Amazon videos you can add to your product listing. Unboxing videos is one of the most popular because people love seeing how a product works, what it looks like in reality, how does it feel when holding it, the sizes, and many more. It is easier to watch a video than to guess these features by looking at images.
Amazon listing videos are implemented in the backend where you would post Enhanced Brand Content, but they show up in the frontend located at product images. Below is a simple 3-step guide for you to implement product listing videos.
Navigate to “Enhanced Brand Content” under the “Advertising” tab as shown in the image below.
Enter the SKU number and click on the “Get Started” button to search for your product.
Once the search is complete, your product details will be displayed as shown in the screenshot below. Double-check the product details are correct then click the “Add Video” button to proceed to the next step.
Once you have selected the product listing to add a video, the final step is to insert details of the video. Use thumbnails that represent the video and have your main product keywords in your video title and description. Click the “Submit” button once you have completed the details.
When selling on Amazon, it is important that sellers optimize their product listings to drive more conversions which ultimately increases sales and profits. I highly recommend brand registered sellers to take advantage of Amazon listing videos to stand out from competitors, increase conversions, and grow your business.
Discover opportunities. Maximize your sales. Grow your Amazon business!
