Want to Save Money? – Why Your Next Call Should Be to an Amazon Agency

Trying to Scale Your Amazon Business? Here's How a Full-Service Amazon Management Agency Does It While Saving You Money at the Same Time

Selling on Amazon can be as challenging as it is rewarding. To really hit the ground running, entrepreneurs must carefully plan their strategy, source great products to list with optimized, descriptive copy that connects customers to what they’re buying – all while staying in tune with policies & practices of not only Amazon but competitors as well! The rewards are definitely worth it if you put in the effort up front.

But, there are two big problems with that idea; expertise and time. Specifically, a lack of both.

Even though many entrepreneurs have a lot of e-commerce experience, the volatility of Amazon’s rapidly changing marketplace is requiring increasingly high levels of specialized business acumen. 

At the same time, we’re all getting busier and that trend hasn’t left e-commerce untouched. It simply takes more time now to stay on top of all the many different facets of selling on Amazon.  For example, managing Amazon pay per click (PPC) and demand-side platform advertising alone equate to two separate full-time jobs.

That’s why many e-commerce sellers are reaching out to Amazon marketing agencies to try to boost their Amazon SEO, increase brand recognition, drive conversion rates, and accelerate sales velocity.

You’re busy, we get it! 

Just to give a sense of the list of tasks that await you as Amazon sellers, here’s a few of the hats that you need to wear (many of which you can hand off to a full-service Amazon agency) that require increasing amounts of both time and expertise. 

  • Researching and sourcing products: This involves finding products that are in demand and have good profit margins, as well as sourcing them from reliable suppliers at competitive prices.
  • Ongoing competitor research to build your brand and defend your turf.
  • Selecting relevant keywords to optimize your listing for Amazon’s search algorithm, then painstakingly creating the product listings
  • Coordinating your Amazon PPC and DSP advertising campaigns. 
  • Managing inventory: This involves keeping track of your stock levels, setting up alerts to reorder products when inventory gets low, and creating purchasing and restocking plans.
  • Communicating with customers: This involves responding to customer inquiries and reviews in a timely and professional manner, as well as proactively reaching out to customers to resolve any issues.
  • Analyzing data and adjusting your strategy. Using tools like the Amazon Seller Central dashboard, Helium 10, Jungle Scout or other third-party software to track sales, profitability, and other key metrics.
