Amazon Round Up
FBA Sales Slump Edition

Are you in the midst of an FBA Sales Slump? Do you feel your Amazon success is waning? This week AMAZOOKA is featuring articles addressing why your sales may be down, and what you can do about it.

The Amazooka Method stresses the importance of data informed decision making. In regards to your Sales Dropping, its important to know WHY this is happening, and if it is a result of more competition, a change in Amazon’s Terms of Service, an issue with your Reviews or Listing, or if it is just the Low Season for your Product or Category.

By tracking your Best Seller Rank (BSR) you’ll be able to tell if a sales drop is occurring to your product alone, or across the category. If your BSR stays the same, but your sales drop, DON’T WORRY! Your sales may be down, but your performance relative to the competition hasn’t. This is probably the result of a seasonal downturn. If your BSR goes down BUT your Keywords continue to rank at the same level, this too is a sign of a Seasonal Lull.

So when should you be concerned? When your BSR and Keywords take a nosedive, sound the alarm. Your competition is beating you, and its time to make some changes. Are you tracking your BSR, Keywords, and Sales? If you aren’t, your really should. Otherwise you’re just flying blind and relying on luck.
