Keeping the brand’s presence alive on Amazon to engage new customers or keeping loyal customers updated with interesting information has been an area of concern for brand owners. Amazon, working as a Genie to the advertisers’ requirements & demands, came up with a marvelous feature to let the brands speak for themselves – Amazon Posts.
What are Amazon Posts?
Ever imagined Amazon as a social media platform (maybe like Instagram) too? This is what Amazon Posts is all about. A beautiful and creative amalgamation of the big giant e-commerce also serving as a social media platform, giving the customers a chance to scroll through the shoppable feeds and giving brands a chance to keep building & boosting their brand’s awareness.
Just create attractive & engaging posts – publish them on Amazon and let them feed the growing hunger of consumers to know more about your brand on the platform.
First and foremost, Amazon Posts are FREE.
Yes, you read that right. Brands can use this creative and promising feature of Amazon without paying a penny.
Since Amazon posts are still in the beta phase, they are only available in a few marketplaces right now – in the US, SE, PL, and EG, for advertisers who are either Vendor or Seller enrolled with Amazon Brand Registry. Not to forget, a store page for your brand is a must to use Amazon Posts.
Amazon Posts is currently available on the Amazon mobile shopping app and the mobile web.
The posts will appear in four different spaces:
- Brand Feed
- Category Feed
- Related Product Feed
- Product Details Page
Another brilliant feature is scheduling your posts. You can create engaging content for any upcoming event, no matter how small or big it might be, and just schedule it to go live during those events. Doing so can act as an eye-catcher for the customers.
