Keyword Optimization 

Sometimes the best solution for a problem you’ve been having is the simplest one. On this episode of The Amazing Seller, Chris gives some great advice on how to optimize the title of your Amazon product listing. Don’t forget that quick glances at your product and titles MAKE a huge impression. Consider restructuring your title if you aren’t getting the results you are looking for. Don’t include unnecessary words. An example is using the words silver or chrome when describing stainless steel, those colors automatically come to mind for the consumer. If you are wondering how you can optimize your title, make sure to listen to this episode!

  • Lower your price. See if that makes a difference. Lower the price for a few weeks.
