Amazon has created A+ Content experiments that we truly believe will make a huge difference in your Amazon business!
Using the feature Experiments you will be able to compare two pieces of A+ content against each other so you can see which one performs better and drives more sales.
Here at TurnKey we are so PUMPED about this feature because it finally gives us an opportunity to split-test such a crucial part of the listing.
Here’s how an A/B test works. When you set up your experiment, you’ll tell Amazon which two pieces of A+ content you want to test. Customers who are purchasing on Amazon will randomly be assigned to see Version A, or Version B, for the entire duration of the experiment. Experiment results will be updated once a week, and tell you which version of content has had more sales.
Here are some things you may be interested in experimenting on. But don’t restrict yourself to these ideas – use your own judgement and knowledge of your brand to determine what to test.
A+ Content with text vs. A+ Content without text
New A+ content modules
New A+ content layouts and designs
Changing up the imagery by adding new lifestyle and infographic images
Testing out new pieces of content like value adds or your brand story
Trying out cross selling different products using the comparison chart in your A+ content
Want to know what your New Year’s resolution should be? Trying out this new feature to see how it helps your listing convert!
Aside from this update…our TurnKey team wanted to wish you and yours the happiest of holidays.
This new program helps brands obtain brand protection and intellectual property rights in the Amazon store.
This program is built for small and medium-size brands who are looking to take their business to the next level while also protecting it in a cost-effective way.
The participating IP (intellectual property) law firms have been vetted by Amazon and will ease the stress of getting a trademark. Not only that but Amazon has done the negotiations for you by offering sellers incredibly competitive rates to work with these law firms.
They can help you with other items besides trademark issues including other IP needs such as copyright registrations, design patents, and broader IP protection strategies.
Working with these law firms also has an added bonus of brand protection features in Amazon’s store. Since the participating law firms have been vetted by Amazon, when a brand works with one of the law firms in the IP Accelerator program and a trademark has been filed on their behalf, the brand will be strong candidates for Brand Registry.
As a result, Amazon will provide these brands with accelerated access to brand protection in Amazon’s stores, to better protect their brand before their trademark registration officially issues. Brands will benefit from automated protections, which proactively block bad listings from Amazon’s stores, increased authority over product data on Amazon, and access to the Report a Violation tool. This powerful tool searches for and reports bad listings that have made it past Amazon’s automated protections.
If you have been struggling with a trademark or other IP issues we highly recommend looking into this program.
