INTEGRATE YOUR AMAZON SALES THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA

Social media needs no explanation in today’s world. With almost 2.8 billion of humans present on social networks, it is rather hard to imagine that this outlook can be ignored when it comes to business outreach. Business success stories on social media are no more limited to simple paid campaigns. Numerous tactics and innovations have taken storms on various social media platforms giving rise to corporate accomplishments even beyond expectations.

If you are selling on Amazon, you will be aware that it is a tricky task to attract customers to YOUR particular product, especially if you are selling a common product which is readily available from other sellers too. There is no overstatement in saying that you need to apply every possible marketing strategy (like sponsored ads, product page detailing, winning the buy box, price optimization and many others) on Amazon itself. But, no business exists without innovation and execution of tasks which are out of the box.

So here is your best option away from the Amazon platform – social media.

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room so that you are majorly covered. Facebook is unarguably the most vastly exploited social media network and has an astounding user base of over 2.3 billion people. And here is the chance for you to reach out to targeted customers for your Amazon marketplace store.

There are two major approaches to raising your business on Facebook.

  1. Run paid campaigns – Facebook provides a very comfortable interface to target your customers. You can run campaigns of your Amazon store page or products by selecting your customers based on location, age, gender, their interests and dislikes. For example, if you are selling stationary, you can target a person in your country (as this customer is most likely to order from you) of age between 10 and 35 who has interests in craftwork. Such a direct targeting option allows you to reach out to relevant audiences and increases chances of sales very highly.
  2. Create your Facebook page – This idea also works well for a seller who is willing to be consistent on social media. Create your page and regularly post your products with new ideas. Add your product page links to your posts so that customers get an easy ordering experience. There can be high levels of success if you manage to create a good base on your page.

Some examples of social media business strategies are as follows:

A clothing and lifestyle brand Ugmonk, posted an image of its product using an inspirational quote from Steve Jobs on Twitter. Quotes are more likely to be shared and this is why this strategy worked out for Ugmonk.

You can use this strategy on your page as well as for paid campaigns for your Amazon selling products. It is a catchy approach to grabbing consumer attraction.

Nike uses images with motivational messages on Pinterest. So, people share the image with the idea of the message and the product penetrates through customers in a subtle way.

Aerie, a women’s clothing company, encourages its viewers to share un-edited pictures of themselves with the hashtag  #AerieReal promising to donate to a needy organization. This is a very unique way of making your brand viral – indirect but deep.

This method will work out well if you have your own Facbook page and manage to get an appropriate amount of attention in terms of followers. Once your page is set, ideas like this or something similar can be laid out. You may ask your customers to use a hashtag and post photos as a contest and give your product as a gift for the best photo selected. Such ideas, that have something return, generally catch the eyes of social media users easily.

Engaging customers with questions grabs a huge audience and the same can be done for your products on your Facebook page. Have a look.

Bottom line is that businesses have to be customer centric in order to sustain. So cultivate your brand in such a way that your customers comfortably showcase and spread your products on social media. Your customers should actually desire to interact with your brand on social networks and that is what gives you the real success.

Marketing on social media has many facets to success. And because it is a platform that is actively involving people of all demographic natures, human psychology is an important factor to be considered. We shall herewith discuss a few points that may drive your social media marketing using human psychology.

  1. Make your posts more human

Putting a human face to your advertisements and brand increases the chances of a customer being attracted to you. Attention is grabbed much easily when advertisements are associated with a human face as this is related to emotional connect. If a consumer is aware that there is a human on the backstage to reciprocate all activities that he is doing towards your business, the conversation is likely to be swifter.

  1. Build relationships

Be consistent with your social media presence. Do not disappear for unexpected long periods; your audience is very likely to forget you. Social media is a platform that offers a diversity of information to consumers – you must be consistent enough to keep yourself in the limelight as well. Make sure that all messages that you receive are replied to appropriately and well in time. Give your audience a sense of trust. You are in touch with many like them, but each of them looks upon you with the expectation of a single communication channel. Try to fulfil their queries in time.

  1. Expose the benefits

Every individual is naturally attracted to anything that advantages or benefits him/her. Highlight on what benefits you have for your consumers. Keep allocating free trials and discounts for your services and/or products and show them on your social media. Focussing on customer benefits assures you a much higher engagement rate.

  1. Emotional triggers

Don’t leave out on the wit and humour, that’s what catches the human eye the most. Laughter is a universal language that strengthens connections. You will notice that a large percentage of the content that goes viral on social media is either funny or witty. Jokes will trigger quicker reaction and positive responses to your posts.

  1. Make it easy to grasp

Study proves that human attention is mostly stable for only up to 8 seconds. Make sure that the major information that you are trying to pass on is clutched within 8 seconds. If you are writing a long story, make the introductory lines catchy enough to hold on to the customer for longer times. Visual content and videos are known to be great concentration boosters. Use them effectively in your posts.

Adopt these tactics and watch your social media outreach grow enormously!

Adapt the right marketing Strategy on Social Media

When we speak about social media, the biggest trend all over the globe is Facebook, and therefore, many companies use Facebook to market their products using the ad spaces provided by this media platform. However, while advertising, they fail to acquire lasting results because of the wrong strategy adopted by the companies.

Facebook is one of the best opportunities provided by the internet to assure an online success of your brand. Nevertheless, even the best content ever posted on Facebook will only yield low results, with simultaneously incurring high costs. So, the real question to be asked before planning an online marketing strategy is, “How much and Where should I spend?”

“Likes” matter the most

Currently, many people are focusing on getting more “likes” for their brand; therefore, they tend to spend money on “Page like Ads” to get more fans and “Post Engagement Ads” estimating that their sales will increase in future. However in reality, what you expect is not what you get.  This strategy only increases your cost without increasing your profit. You are able to target your audience, but are not able to create a long lasting effect on them.  You get a temporary and short term page post, and target audience base is restricted to the number of “likes” you get.

Focus on building a brand identity

In order to increase the effectiveness of your online marketing through Facebook or any other social media platform, you should not only be able to reach your target audience but should be able to provide them with what they want.

You need a reason for your potential customers to remember you, and there are many ways you can achieve this goal –

  • Your campaign should be focused not on getting more “likes” but ensure brand awareness and long term engagement
  • A great way to ensure a long term effect is to engage your audience in fun-filled contests, like photo contests, quizzes. Anything and everything that interests them.
  • You should be able to steer the traffic around your campaign and use that to increase your customer base. Use Facebook but do not restrict yourself to it.

Roll-out smart campaigns
