As a seller on the Amazon online marketplace, you will be faced with multiple scenarios in terms of results. Sometimes, your products will be performing so well, without even having a satisfactory ranking on the search engine result pages. At other times, you will on the top of the list for almost all relevant keywords, but you will not even manage to get a few good impressions. A similar situation to the above is when a particular product is getting trafficked with numerous clicks but surprisingly; the sales numerals will be very disappointing. The fact that you are getting clicks shows that you should be doing rather well with the search engine results and ranking. It is the product page that needs attention, since it seems to be the actual ‘culprit’ in this case of lower sales. We shall discuss herewith a few changes with respect to your product or product page. Let us a take a look into how to manage a product page that has a good number of clicks but no (or less) sales.
- Competitor Analysis
No business can exist without embedding this concept in its strategies. In Amazon, you might have won over the buy box, but there are many other sellers having the same product as yours and they will be implementing all possible methods also in order to take over that buy box ownership. It is necessary to review and keep an eye on the ‘other prices’ available for your product. If your stated price of product, shipment costs or shipment timings are not competitive with the others, your products will not be bought despite the click. Keep a balance between your shipment cost and the product price. Make sure your delivery timings are not crossing the boundary and broaden your acceptance of payment methods for your customers.
The above example shows that the offered product price of the perfume 225, but there are other offers of the same product available in 195. There are high chances that the product will be not purchased from this particular seller despite having a product page click.
- Get those good reviews
Bad reviews or lower star ratings on a product page are immediate roadways to click wastes. If your product reviews are not up to the mark, there are very low chances of the click resulting in a sale. In today’s world of hyper-networking, reviews play a vital role in driving sales. However good your product may be, if an older customer has left a bad review due to your packaging, the new customer will hesitate to purchase from you. So it is a must that your overall performance is above the average mark. It is always a good idea to get back to your previous customer base and request them for some reviews if they are happy with your product.
- Correct your content
Reviewing and revising your product detail page on a regular basis is very important. Firstly you should make sure that any of the metrics listed (including packaging details, shipment details and others) are not non-realistic. Keep in mind that online shopping completely takes away the physical aspect from customers and therefore your brand has to be trusted enough to ensure regular sales. For the trust, you have to be truthful. Ranging from product images, colour details, shipment details and every other minute point, you must make sure that whatever is listed is true and not mistakenly/wrongly mentioned. Making your product detail page as honest and clear as you can is the key to winning customers and getting good reviews too.
- Irrelevant clicks identification
There are quite sometimes when our product page is directed through irrelevant clicks which in turn arise due to wrong keywords that have been added mistakenly. A good example of this scenario is that ‘school bag’ product page is getting clicks through the keyword ‘school bottle’. We can identify the keyword pathway to our product page clicks, and if it is noticed that the clicks are arising through irrelevant keywords, you should immediately take them away. Keyword optimization is the key to reduce all irrelevant clicks on a product page.
- Offers and Promotions
If you have been following all the above agendas and still notice that your clicks are high with no (enough) sales, it should be a good idea to introduce an offer or promotion to your product. Offering a visible discount on your products might just trigger the buyer to pick your product. Show your customers how much they are benefitting by purchasing from you and your sales should hike. Another option is to give promotions such as ‘BUY 1, GET 1 FREE’ or ‘SHOP FOR 500 OR ABOVE AND GET FREE SHIPPING’. Such promotions on your products will also help in increasing sales.
If you are also suffering from the ‘clicks but no sales’ on Amazon, try the above techniques, you should get much better results. Selling on Amazon comes with a whole package of issues on its own. You have to keep an eye on content optimization, make sure your account health is performing well, have a good buy box ownership percentage and also keep up with your product page details. Amongst these, account health is very important as it helps from getting an account suspension on Amazon.
