Amazon Posts: the new tool to grow your brand

Voor merken en ondernemers die hun producten verkopen via Amazon, is de komst van de Amazon Posts tool een innovatieve ontwikkeling op het gebied van marketing. Naast de Brand Story en A+ content kunnen verkopers nu ook berichten plaatsen op de marketplace.

In other words, sellers have recently been able to “post” on Amazon. The tool is much like Pinterest and Instagram, allowing you to scroll through various posts. Sellers can tout products in an Amazon Post with a great story, including images.

But how exactly does Amazon Posts work, what exactly does it entail and what are the benefits for sellers? In this article, we will explain to you exactly what Amazon Posts are and how exactly it works. Be sure to read along to learn more about it.

What are Amazon Posts?

Amazon Posts are a visually-oriented social media feature from Amazon that allows sellers on Amazon to promote their brand and products. The tool allows sellers to share photos and descriptions of their products on Amazon to attract the attention of potential customers.

Posts appear on product detail pages and on Amazon customers’ feeds, which can help build brand awareness and drive sales.

Benefits of Amazon Posts

One of the main advantages of Amazon Posts is that it is free to post. So it is actually a form of organic advertising. However, this is not the only benefit of Amazon messaging. Below we will discuss the main benefits:

  • Producten onder de aandacht brengen: door middel van de juiste afbeelding, titel en korte productomschrijving, trek je makkelijker en sneller de aandacht van jouw doelgroep. Een post kan daarom worden gezien als een gratis advertentie op Amazon, mits je weet hoe het algoritme van Amazon werkt.
  • Product description: not everyone will be immediately familiar with your brand and products. In a post, you have the opportunity to create a clear product description explaining exactly what the product is, what customers will get out of it and why they should buy it.
  • Showing product in action: it is ever difficult to estimate a product’s dimensions and how the features described actually work. Through an image in a realistic environment and possibly a video, customers get a good idea of the product’s quality, operation and design.
  • Aanbiedingen kenbaar maken: veel verkopers maken gebruik van advertenties op Amazon om aanbiedingen kenbaar te maken bij het publiek, echter kost adverteren op Amazon geld. In plaats daarvan kun je gratis een Amazon post aanmaken om aanbiedingen in de spotlight te zetten.
  • Build brand awareness: most customers will not be immediately familiar with your brand and products. In that case, Amazon Posts is the perfect tool to tell customers more about what your brand stands for and what’s special about your products.
  • Direct link to the product: many sellers on Amazon use social media channels such as Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, TikTok, etc. for their marketing. From these channels, they also post links to their products on Amazon. The big difference with Amazon Posts is that you post a direct link to the product on the same site. Individuals who are on Amazon are already looking for a product anyway so the propensity to buy is automatically higher.

How does Amazon Posts work?

Getting started posting Posts on Amazon is pretty easy. Follow the step-by-step plan below to get started posting on Amazon:

  1. Go to posts.amazon.com and log in with your ad console login credentials or create a business account;
  2. After creating the account, you will be taken to the “Welcome to Posts” page where you can click on “Get Started.
  3. If you sell multiple brands through the same account on Amazon, you now need to select and brand for which you want to start using Amazon Posts;

ASIN’s zijn 10-cijferige codes waarmee producten die op Amazon verkocht worden, geïdentificeerd kunnen worden. Meer over weten? Lees dan ons artikel over alle Amazon barcodes.

Who can post on Amazon?

Op het moment van schrijven zijn Amazon Posts enkel beschikbaar voor verkopers uit de Verenigde Staten, die zijn ingeschreven bij Amazon Brand Registry (zowel Sellers als Vendors). Ook als je niet op Amazon adverteert, kun je als merk geregistreerde winkel gebruikmaken van Posts op Amazon.

Where do Amazon Posts end up?

If all goes well, you now know how to post an Amazon Post, but where do these posts end up? Since few sellers can still use the tool, it is currently of extra interest to those who have access to the feature.

It is good to know that Amazon Posts end up on different pages. However, Amazon’s algorithm will determine where they can be seen and by whom. The following is an overview of the possible places where your Amazon Posts can be seen by site visitors.

Amazon Brand Feed

The Amazon Brand Feed is your personal feed where all Amazon Posts become weather data. Customers can find information here about your brand and products from the posts.

Your personal Brand Feed can be thought of as a kind of Instagram page. In fact, it is possible for customers to follow you on this so that new posts always show up in their feed.

Product page

Onderaan de productpagina wordt een carrousel getoond met ‘Related Posts’ Hierin worden posts van producten getoond die de klant wellicht ook interessant vindt. Ook helpt dit bij de SEO op Amazon.

When customers click on a “related post,” they are directed to your personal Brand Feed. So here they see not only the product they clicked on, but also all the other posts.

Category Feed

Amazon gets a huge number of visitors each month, some of whom are specifically looking for a particular product, while others are not yet sure exactly which model or brand they want.

In that case, they can use categories. The category pages also display related Amazon Posts.

Once you have optimized your post and have good sales performance, Amazon’s algorithm can determine to display your post on the relevant category pages.
