AMAZON’S BEST SELLER RANK v Every product page on Amazon displays its Best Seller Rank or ‘BSR’ BSR indicates how well an item is selling within its product category. Example: this product is the 1,047th best selling product in the Grocery category The lower the BSR, the more units are selling for that product. 3

Slide 3

PRODUCTS WITH A LOW BSR SHOW HIGHER IN THE SEARCH RESULTS Product 1: BSR of 1,047 Product 2: BSR of 7,862 Search term: xylitol sweetener Result: Product 1 shows up first Your goal: ensure your product has a LOW BSR 4

Slide 4

WHAT DRIVES BSR? Amazon’s ranking algorithm prioritizes 3 factors: 1. 2. 3. Volume of Sales over time or ‘sales velocity’ Conversion Rate. Amazon asks, “What product is the searcher most likely to buy?” Product Reviews by customers. Reviews indirectly affect BSR by increasing trust (and conversions) 5

IS THERE ENOUGH DEMAND FOR YOUR PRODUCT? If you’re investing time, money and effort in launching products on Amazon, you’ll want to ensure there is existing demand first. GET A QUICK & DIRTY SALES ESTIMATE One way to gauge the demand for a product: look at the number of recent product reviews. We know that less than 10% of Amazon customers actually leave product reviews, so you can get a rough estimate of the monthly sales by multiplying the number of product reviews left in the last 30 days by 10. This product had 11 reviews left in the past 30 days, so is potentially selling around 110 units per month. 7

A COMPELLING PRODUCT LISTING Copywriting: headlines, bullet points and product descriptions Attractive product images, and lifestyle photos that tell a story The right mix: features tell, benefits sell Trustworthiness and social proof from genuine reviews Turn browsers into buyers: tell the story of how your product solves the customer’s problem 10

AMAZON IS NOT A ‘SET AND FORGET’ PLATFORM CONDUCT A DAILY ACCOUNT REVIEW Your Seller Rating is impacted by your responsiveness to buyer questions, returns, shipping delays, and other metrics. Don’t wait more than 24 hours between checking your key account metrics BE AWARE OF POLICY VIOLATIONS Amazon is known for a “shoot first, ask questions later” approach with policy violations. Policies change over time, so follow updates and announcements to avoid potential restrictions and suspensions CHECK COMPETITOR ACTIVITY Unauthorized resellers may ‘squat’ on your product listing and erode your good reputation; new competition may appear and bring new challenges RESPOND TO REVIEWS & FEEDBACK Especially in the case of negative feedback and reviews, its imperative to respond quickly and do damage control. Other potential customers will judge your company & product based on the speed and thoughtfulness of your response 13
