With an established Vendor account and listings in the UK marketplace, Viners was looking at how they could further drive growth on the platform. Viners had opted for a full-service Amazon strategy including the creation of optimised listing content, building a brand-centric Amazon store, and running effective and efficient campaigns.
As with everything in the eCommerce industry, research is a fundamental starting point. We started with keyword research and landscape research (competitor and market analysis) which would allow us to better understand shopping behaviour including which keywords to go after, what to include in the listings, and the best way to position the brand.
A full-service Amazon strategy was put in place to upload listings to the inventory and optimise the content. Once we had all the listings optimised for conversion, a campaign strategy was implemented where we utilised a mix of Sponsored Products, Sponsored Brands, and Sponsored Display Ads to achieve brand awareness and ROAS goals.
The paid advertising strategy was used to drive high levels of traffic to optimised listings and the Amazon store in order to elevate account sales, improve organic rankings, and reestablish brand presence.
Having built a strong partnership with Viners as their E-commerce partner, RT7Digital achieved the following results over the first year of working with Viners:
- Optimised and refreshed over 140 individual ASINs
- Produced 109 A+ Content pieces
- Designed, built, and published a new Amazon store
The following actions were completed in the advertising space:
