4. Good SEO Techniques
i. Product Title
Always put the most important keyword(s) in the product title. If you’re selling a saree, make sure “saree” is in the title. Most important is the item’s brand name and then comes the unique feature/material of your product then the product color and size, just that’s it. No need to crowd your product title with irrelevant keywords.
ii. Product Description
If your descriptions don’t convince people to buy, they’ll bounce off the listing which can naturally decrease your conversion rate.
Use bullet points in technical details and write a concise and attractive description to make your product stand out. You can research product descriptions of top saree sellers on Amazon like Mimosa and Saree Mall, to have a better understanding of what works

How much to spend on Sponsored Product Ads?
– Calculate your profit ratio. Lets say, you sell a saree at 100 and the profit you get from it is 20. Then your profit ratio is 20/100, i.e., 20%
– Calculate ACoS.
ACoS stands for Advertising cost of Sales.
If you spend 10 on an Ad for a sale of 100, your ACoS is 10/100, i.e.,10%
– So, if ACoS for a keyword is less than the profit ratio, the ad based on that keyword is making you money. Amazon gives you ACoS for different keywords related to your product while you create your Ad.
6. Customer Reviews and Ratings
– Customer reviews and ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them. They help sellers in understanding customers’ sentiment about their products, what features or aspects of the product customers like, and what areas need improvements. Keywords that consumers use in reviews can help your product stand better in search results. According to Search Engine Land, Amazon rewards brands with great customer service that respond quickly to reviews and questions.
– Research shows that 84% of shoppers trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation, and 91% of shoppers occasionally or regularly read online reviews.
– When it comes to negative reviews, you should always respond to them thoroughly, as they can be a great way to build credibility and show that you care about their reviews and are there to fix them.
