After the recent busy Christmas shopping season, there is nothing better than promptly planning ahead for upcoming Valentine’s Day to keep the level of your sales volumes sky-high.
Therefore, in the following lines we are going to share some precious tips on how Amazon sellers can prepare for Valentine’s Day and increase their shop sales!
Use key words
The first thing you should keep in mind is that Valentine’s Day is a holiday where people tend to buy products that are often not very original. In fact, most of those who celebrate this event usually surprise their loved ones with traditional gifts. Plus, most of them are in the classic shades of red or pink!
So, take advantage of this information and remember that the most popular Valentine’s Day gifts generally belong to categories such as:
- candy and chocolate
- flowers and plants
- accessories for men and women
But, what if your articles don’t fit into one of these categories? No need to worry. Just add new keywords such as “gift”, “Valentine’s Day”, or “Lovers’ Day” to stimulate increased traffic to your products.
Create gift packages
With a little imagination and creativity, you can put a Valentine’s Day twist on anyone of your products. Creating an ad hoc gift bundle is a great way to differentiate yourself from the competition and expand your keyword options to gain more visibility. Just make sure your bundles are the featured items, especially during the two weeks just before February 14th.
Advertise on and off Amazon
Advertising on Amazon is another excellent way to increase traffic before Valentine’s Day. You can use Amazon sponsored product ads if your products are eligible to win the Buy Box. Or, you can use sponsored ads that can introduce new buyers to your business.
Of course, to get the most out of advertising, it is a good idea to do thorough research on the appropriate keywords that will make your product stand out among its competitors and increase your daily budget. There are also many options for advertising outside of Amazon: think about Google Ads or Facebook Ads.
Offer fast delivery
On every holiday there are always last-minute shoppers, and this happens even (or especially!) on Valentine’s Day. For this reason, another good tip is to offer a fast delivery service that can win over the late shopper.
If your product is a popular Valentine’s Day gift, you will surely want to ensure maximum profit and you won’t want to run out of stock. In this case, replenishing your inventory abundantly and/or implementing a dynamic pricing strategy might definitely be a good thing to do.
We hope these small but precious tips will help you plan a sound strategy for Valentine’s Day. Remember to use our tools to improve the effectiveness of your Amazon activities and … happy Valentine’s Day sales!
