Is Amazon’s Big Spring Sale the new Prime Day?

As we move forward to the year, the ecommerce industry inches toward a progressive but aggressive environment. So, we started digging into more statistics to give you the first look at the information that’ll help your business bloom this spring season:

POST OF THE WEEK

BIG IDEA

Prime Day is one of the most anticipated events in the Amazon universe. Come July of every year, big savings wait for buyers— and big profits wave to sellers.

And while we’re still months away from Prime Day, Amazon decided to bring in a surprise—the Big Spring Sale! If you’re wondering how this brand-new event compares to Prime Day, here’s what SheKnows has to say about it:

🌸 Prime Day in spring?

Running from March 20 to 25, 2024, shoppers and sellers can’t help but think of Amazon’s Big Spring Sale as the spring version of Prime Day. Why?

  • Prime Day-level deals are available to EVERYONE. But of course, Amazon offers more exclusive deals to Prime members.
  • With discounts that reach up to 50%, it’s an excellent opportunity for you to clear out old stocks while teasing customers about future Prime Day offers. 💡
  • Just like Prime Day, Big Spring Sale may contribute billions of dollars toward the retail giant’s revenue.

But Prime Day is still the ‘prime’ Amazon event

Although the spring sale event is like a breath of fresh air, it’s still just a teaser to the grand July Prime Day. Speaking of which, Amazon made a discreet announcement for those who want to participate in the latter.

The company hasn’t revealed the dates for Prime Day 2024 yet, but if you plan to sell at the event, you need to submit your deals on or before May 3, 2024. 📌

Top Amazon product categories with high demand and low competition

Top Amazon product categories with high demand and low competition

As the largest online marketplace, Amazon provides a great chance to earn fat checks even in the comfort of your home. But selling on the platform doesn’t guarantee that your business will be profitable—unless you find the right product to sell.

📈 By this, we mean products with high demand AND low competition. According to AMZScout, the categories with high product demand include:

  • Clothing and Accessories (dinosaur slippers, 
  • Electronics
  • Books
  • Home and Kitchen (dry soup mix, wicker basket, and drink holder for sofa)
  • Pet Supplies
  • Beauty and Personal Care (foaming soap tablets, organic face powder, cluster lashes kit, and zero-waste deodorant)
  • Toys and Games (toddler golf set and kid play tent)

Not selling in these categories?

Don’t worry, you can find the right product to sell in simple steps:

  • Do your product research. Use product research tools to easily monitor product and demand trends.
  • Visit the Amazon Best Sellers Page to view all the highest-selling products. Do note that the page doesn’t display the sales number so be smart when evaluating the potential demand for a listed product. 🔍
  • Attend online webinars. In most cases, the webinars are led by the most successful Amazon sellers. Who can better lecture you on finding the right products than them, right?

ACTIONABLE ADVICE

How to optimize your checkout process

How to optimize your checkout process

The FBA hustle doesn’t stop with finding a high-demand, low-competition product to sell. You still have to convince buyers to check out your product. And Bazaarvoice knows how you can do this—by simplifying your checkout process!

✔️ Check your checkout

Before everything, you must evaluate your current checkout process. You can use surveys or feedback forms to gather customers’ insights.

If you notice some negative opinions, you have some optimizations to do:

  • Set relevant objectives. Much better if you could make it as specific as possible, such as “to reduce checkout time by 15 mins.” Find out what factors drive customers to checkout items (hint: shorter time for the checkout process!)
  • Turn the objectives into actions by making the necessary adjustments in your checkout process. Start with the simple issues (like rearranging buttons on the checkout page for a smoother flow) and work your way to the complex ones.
  • Monitor and improve. Customer behavior and preferences change, so make sure your systems and processes can adapt well. After all, some improvements may still need tweaking to achieve the optimal results.

Bonus tip: Don’t stop at checkout

A complicated checkout process drives 17% of customers to abandon their carts. But you’ll lose a lot more—38% to be exact—if your website is unattractive. 👎

So, don’t neglect the content and layout of your entire ecommerce site. Make sure everything is in the right place to surely snatch those sales.
