THINKING GIANT! SEE HOW AMAZON marketing can heat up!

Amazon Marketing is hot!

Let’s chat AMAZON — ranking organically is the #1 marketing strategy you can do.

 RESEARCHING KEYWORDS

  • Assists you in reaching the right people.
  • Reaching your buyers products interest that are searched.
  • Product keywords need to hit the current demand.

You need to be proactive rather than reactive.

Ideally it’s best to use terms that a buyer would use. While looking for a product being in your customer’s shoes is the best way to accomplish this.

Does your keyword work?

Implementing the Inbound Marketing best practices have taught us to use a search engine to back up your keywords. Using AMAZON is the best way to do this. Simply enter in your keywords into AMAZON and see what your results are.

If they are what you are expecting, fantastic; however if your search term is bringing up results that are not what your wanting to be partnered with I suggest you revisit and revise.

Here are a few ideas to assist:

PPC

An internet advertising model for creating/revising the quality of your keywords.

Competition analysis

You need to be aware of competition with your keywords but I like to recommend being aware of competition at all times. This will only benefit you in every aspect of your brand.

You will not be the only seller on AMAZON, your competitors will most likely be using the same keywords.

If you are on a smaller budget, you should not be targeting keywords and products that will take $10,000+ to rank.

“Amazing is what spreads” by Seth Godin

 Getting started on AMAZON is the hardest thing to do.

A9 algorithm is Amazons own algorithm that it uses to rank products. This algorithm works on the natural generation of organic traffic and purchases. A hurdle you will find is simply common sense here, your business/product is new so it’s not generating much organic traffic.

Because of this, you want to discover keywords that describe your product well but have low competition.

One way you can see how your keywords are doing is by using a keyword tracker. Next Generation Brands recommends KeyworX, which is AMAZONS tracker. Several benefits come with this one being you can directly see how your competition is doing with the exact same keywords you’ve chosen.

We know in this day & time not having AMAZON marketing skills in your business strategy will only leave you behind.

Fulfillment duties, accounting, employees and customer service in its self is a fulltime job.

Next Generation Brands can assist you with all your marketing needs on AMAZON. We’d love to hear from you and learn your story and be a big part of your success.

Invest in Data – Self Storage Consulting Case Study

Storage Facilities Case Study

Local Company Increases Occupancy with Targeted Paid Campaigns

A self storage company located in the Dallas Texas metroplex, with multiple locations found themselves at a stagnant place, behind their competitors with declining sales. They had been in business for over 20 years, starting with a single location.

The Challenge:

Business was declining and the cost of paid advertising was raising constantly but not producing new business, as marketing shifted to organic search / online search. To make the situation worse, a new national chain self-storage company built a new, modern facility right across the street. The new competitor had a large advertising budget, modern facility and low prices. This company had to take action to bring in new business to increase their occupancy rate and compete with the new competitor.

The Solution:

In the FIRST year the company sat in on several meetings with their current paid advertiser at the time, Yellow Pages. With the account executive, regional manager of  Yellow Pages the self storage company wanted to be they fully were informed and understood what was being offered and if the marketing strategy should be redirected or changed. The self storage company produced search and lead generation data that showed the Yellow Pages online efforts were not effective. The company negotiated an “incentive based” package with Yellow Pages that provided free service if leads were not generated. At first, the only effort was a small online pay-per-click campaign to draw comparisons to the Yellow Pages results built off of the new buyer persona’s developed from the data.

In the SECOND year, the Yellow Pages campaign had produced poor results and the storage company then expanded their efforts to a broader pay-per-click campaign, revising the persona’s, a new website utilizing long tail keywords, images with alt text that was mobile friendly and some additional solid local SEO strategies. (See previous blogs for further information on SEO)

Results:

 Once the Yellow Page efforts were reduced and a more integrated online marketing campaign was implemented, the results accelerated. They were able to produce a steady stream of new leads, concentrating efforts on local college students, Military families locating to Texas and the downtown population who view convenience of  location as an importance.

Special offers were highlighted in the website and online advertising. They were targeted to seasonal opportunities, like college students storing their dorm room items for the summer.

By the end of the SECOND year, occupancy rate had increased from 65% to 95%. The self storage was competing strongly with the new facility across the street. Their Yellow Pages monthly investment had dropped to a small percentage of what it was when the project started. Additionally, they had full visibility into where their marketing investment was going and what parts of it were producing new business.
