The Amazon expert also covers the three main benefits brands can achieve when adopting a hybrid approach to selling on Amazon.
As a search marketer on Amazon I have had a front row seat to the changes in consumer behavior through COVID-19. Watching the changes in search volume and ranking is always interesting but watching items like “N95 mask” and “toilet paper” become the top searches on Amazon has brought more of a foreboding than the usual curiosity.
Well, yesterday I got to see something positive begin to trend in Amazon search ranking. As of Saturday 4/4 “Sewing machines” have become the 27th most searched term on Amazon. Back in January it was 591 and as recently as March 19th it was 597. The initial rise in ranking seems to be tied to DIY instructional posts and videos like this tutorial from Erica Arndt – https://lnkd.in/eQT9n5V
The most recent surge in search rank can be matched with calls for supply donations to hospitals and first responders. America’s new favorite news source, SGN (Some Good News) highlighted how companies and people are answering the call https://lnkd.in/eTekg7y
This virus has brought so much harm and negativity that I feel it is more important than ever to show these bright spots when they appear.
