3 reasons why it is a great opportunity to start selling your products on Amazon now
Updated: Apr 25, 2020
Business owners are always looking for ways to expand their business and grow their sales. One of the best methods is to offer your products on a new sales channel – active online marketplace. These platforms have millions of shoppers who visit them on a regular basis to find and purchase their products. While it is true that many people do their shopping on more than one marketplace (Amazon, Etsy, Ebay, MercadoLibre etc.), most of them have their favorite one which they visit most frequently. As a result, offering your products on a new marketplace will guarantee that you reach new potential customers. And one of the marketplaces which has millions of active shoppers is Amazon.
Here are top 3 reasons why you should start selling your products on Amazon:
Demand on Amazon has grown significantly during the global Coronavirus pandemic.
Amazon has hired more than 100,000 new employees in the last four weeks and they just recently announced that they are looking to hire 75,000 more employees to meet the increasing demand from online shoppers. More people shop online (especially on Amazon), so this is a perfect opportunity to add your products on Amazon, reach new customers and grow your sales.
Amazon has always been a big player in online shopping with millions of active online shoppers.
This year they announced that they now have more than 150 million Amazon Prime members around the world (and more than 300 million active Amazon shoppers in total). Amazon has more than 30 different categories and hundreds of sub-categories – in other words, you can definitely sell your product on Amazon and benefit from its gigantic loyal customer base.
Amazon gold mine – organic sales.
If you have your own e-commerce store, chances are, you must run Facebook and Google ad campaigns to find new customers and increase sales. And quite often, advertisement costs eat away a large chunk of your profit margin. Sellers can create advertising campaigns also on Amazon but it is not necessary to reach new customers and grow your sales. We have many clients who have grown their business on Amazon with no advertising at all. Amazon ads do help increase sales and product search ranking (and are essential part of strategy in highly competitive product categories), but with correct keyword and product content optimization, you can get organic sales right from the beginning – without any upfront investment, especially if you have unique or niche specific products.
To sum it up, a large number of active shoppers, ever-increasing demand and great potential for organic sales is the perfect combination which will help you grow your business. This is a perfect opportunity to expand your business on Amazon and increase your sales.
