My seller feedback is still increasing steadily. The number of positive reviews is very encouraging for me. It makes me fell like people really like my products and I am actually conduting my business in a positive manner.
I haven’t talked too much about this before. But as I sell more on Amazon, I am beginning to learn how important getting positive reviews is for more sales. From all my products I have a total of 217 product reviews. Lately I have been giving away products for free to Amazon professional reviewers (you can see the list here). This strategy has been working very well and is giving good results. I can see my sales rank increase and also more sales coming in.
Last month I hired someone from Odesk; paid them $20 and they copied into a spreadsheet ALL the top 1000 Amazon professional reviewers names and email addresses. The best twenty bucks I’ve ever spent!
I use the mail merge feature in word to send bulk individual emails to them whenever I want some more reviews. Works like a charm.
No change here.
Amazon Brand Registry
This past month I recieved an email from Amazon asking me to join the Amazon Brand Registry. I did it, it was pretty easy. However, I haven’t seen any noticebale benefits or changes to anything in my seller account?
Frustration Free Packaging
I also had an email asking me to join the Frustration Free Packaging program (FFP). They said I had a couple of products which could be eligible. I made some enquiries and have since realised that this is not that easy to implement and they couldn’t tell me what the explicit benefits would be, so I didn’t bother joining.
It’s been awhile since I added any new products to my inventory. At this stage I have a pile of samples which I can add, but since I’m just about to go on summer holiday for 2 months, I’m going to leave it until I return. I’d really like to increase the sales from my existing product first anyway before expanding.
