Amazon’s service offering has expanded once more as the e-commerce giant introduces its answer to instantly shoppable social media — Amazon Posts.
The beta version of this innovative product browsing and discovery service gives brands the opportunity to create engaging posts using a range of customisable content features.
Available in the US right now, here’s a glimpse at how users can discover, browse and purchase with ease via this social media style service, which is currently free to use!
What does Amazon Posts look like?
Discover — within a product page, shoppers can scroll down to discover carousels containing content for a brand’s products and related products. Tapping on a post takes users into a feed.
Browse — with a similar user experience to social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook, customers can browse feeds of related posts, with the option of moving on to feeds of product posts in related categories.
How can I make the best use of Amazon Posts?
Post high-quality, relevant content
Treat Amazon Posts like you would treat social media by posting plenty of high-quality content. A winning combination of razor-sharp images and consistent brand messaging will set you on the path to success.
This is a new toolkit for your brand, so play around with different types of content to learn what engages customers best. To get you up and running, you could re-purpose product-focused content that you have previously shared on social media.
Post a lot… and frequently!
You can post as much content as you like as there is currently no limit. Fill the Related Products and Product Categories fields with as much of your content as possible, at regular intervals.
Take advantage of your access to engagement metrics, including views, clicks, and clickthrough rates. Use it to find out whether or not the popular and most engaging products in your feed are actually converting, and what you can do to increase interest.
