Amazon Store Examples
Gilbertson and Page
We’re AMPed with our storefront for pet food brand, Gilbertson and Page. We wanted the homepage to be fun, full of images and highlight their products straightaway. To do this we utilised the image modules and created ‘buttons’ to lead to the landing pages for the different product types.
Gilbertson and Page focus on dog food, however they do create products for other pets. We wanted to make sure the consumer could find the right product easily, which is why we created tabs to shop by brand or by pet. It’s also a good idea to include a Best Sellers section for business with a lot of products, to help generate more sales and help new customers find what others like! We kept their branding and theme throughout by creating personalised image cards for each product that links to its Amazon listing.
Blend Bros is one of the brands of The Flava People. We helped them to set up Brand Registry for all of their brands, ready for curated Amazon storefronts. To catch the consumer’s eye we highlighted the store with a shoppable image of their sauces. Amazon reported shopper interaction with the images and interaction points increased from 19% to 26% when using shoppable images, which is why we featured this in the number one spot!
As Blend Bros only have a handful of products, we dedicated a landing page for each flavour, highlighting their sauces with their beautiful lifestyle photography of mouthwatering food. These separate landing pages then worked in partnership with Amazon advertisements and truly made each product pop!
Aagrah has a wide range of authentic mouthwatering curry sauces with plenty of beautiful images and strong branding that truly stands out on Amazon. This storefront is broken down into types of product, not flavour due to the number available – curry sauces, spice blends, catering packs and gift packs.
The homepage features the best sellers and buttons to link to each category, as well as a shoppable image to help increase interactions and click-through rate. To make sure it is easy for the consumer to explore Aagrah’s products, each page is broken up with a banner and title that includes the product and branding. Each section then includes a lifestyle image of the delicious curry and the pack size variants available on Amazon. The bottom of every page includes a shoppable image of the products included throughout so that the consumer doesn’t have to scroll back and forth to find what they are looking for.
