BIG IDEA

Holiday season or not, the competition on Amazon is always burning up. While the retailer has a rich arsenal of tools for driving traffic and sales, you have to explore external creative means if you really want to stand out.

Influencer Marketing Hub recommends a proven and tested channel—Facebook Ads.

Here's why exploring this advertising avenue could be the best way to grow your brand:

💬 So, why Facebook Ads?

For starters, it's always good for business to broaden your horizons. Also, 40% of shoppers search for products on social media, with 30% using Facebook to shop.

If you're not convinced yet, here are other reasons why it's worth your investment:

  • Massive user base. With 2.9 billion monthly active users, Facebook is your ticket to reach a diverse audience. It also comes with a variety of advertising tools at your disposal.
  • Precise targeting. Facebook Ads are like snipers that can hit the bullseye when targeting audiences. Thanks to Meta's extensive user data, you can even go for high-value customers.
  • High ROI and exposure. Facebook is a customer goldmine, with 1.84 billion users to expose your ads daily. Even small businesses—200 million of them—are already reaping the benefits.
  • Tailored ads. Facebook recognizes that each marketer has different needs. It gives you the power to tailor your approach so you can connect with your audience more effectively.

How to drive traffic using Facebook Ads

There are 2 ways to add them to your marketing mix:

  • Drive traffic to Amazon, particularly cold traffic, or shoppers who scroll but aren't ready to buy. In this case, you should use informative ads first to familiarize potential customers with your brand. Once traffic becomes hot, you can retarget them using engagement ads. 🎯
  • Drive traffic to your landing page. This method allows you to collect customer details, filter out tire kickers, and secure purchases with enticing offers, such as discount offers or codes for checkout.

But before you dive in …

Make sure using Facebook Ads aligns with your business goals.
Sure, it's a game-changing marketing strategy. But you should also ask yourself: Is it enough to create a lasting impact on your buyers' mindset? Or should you find other ways to further optimize your marketing strategy? 🔍

Millions of sellers compete on Amazon every day. If you don’t find a way to stand out, you may get eaten by your rivals.

Good thing Stack Influence can significantly boost your brand awareness without breaking the bank. How, you ask?

Through micro-influencers!

🤏 Smaller is better

Micro-influencers are people who have a following of 1,000 to 100,000. A relatively small number, yes, but don’t get fooled! Every follower micro-influencers have can be converted into customers with high purchase intent.

Here are other reasons why brands love to work with micro-influencers:

  • Budget-friendly. You don’t have to pay a hefty fee for a high-converting campaign. In fact, Stack Influence allows you to pay influencers with products in exchange for authentic testimonials!
  • Lasting content. Unlike mega-influencers, micro-influencers are not swamped with collaborations. That means they invest more time in crafting passionate and personalized campaigns.
  • High engagement rates. Because micro-influencers are relatable, working with them can increase engagement and conversion rates.
