This month’s tool is all about helping you make the right decisions when it comes to your listings on Amazon. Our tool highlight is the new testing and polling tool named Audience.
An important feature of this tool is polling users. Audience has a built-in guider to help you make a poll to test product names, copy, logos, and lead images. Create your questions and wait for the results. The results you get are pulled from a large-high-quality database, over 10,000 US-based users to be exact. These users give you an unbiased assessment of your product choices that help you make educated choices when it comes to your listing!
With Audience, you can customize your poll’s target audience. With This feature allows you to target specific groups of people. You can target geographic location, income, age, hobbies, and more. The results of your poll come to you quickly and answers from the poll will give you an explanation as to why a choice was made.
This tool is a great way for any Amazon seller to get direct feedback before listing their product. Audience takes the guesswork out of product listings and gives you the information you need to optimize your product.
Want to learn how you can promote Audience to YOUR audience? Contact your Affiliate Manager to set up a strategy meeting or schedule a demo with one of our Helium 10 Brand Evangelists! To learn more about Audience, visit the site here.
It is award season, and we want to put the spotlight on you! For the month of June, we are going to be running The CrushIt Awards. In this competition, affiliates will submit nominations for award categories to win big prizes!
To participate in this contest, all you need to do is pick an award category you want to nominate yourself for, complete what is needed for the award category, and submit your entry! Then, just sit back and relax while we tally up the nominations.
There are award categories from Most Liked Instagram Post to Most Diamond Subscribers. We have award categories for EVERYONE! Each Award category will have a first-place winner and that winner will be given a prize worth $1,000! In addition to first place, there will be a runner-up prize for each category that will win $500 and 10 participation prizes worth $100 each. That means there are a total of 30 possible ways to win The CrushIt Awards.
If you are interested in participating in this contest, make sure to check out The CrushIt Awards landing page for all award category details as well as the rules for the competition. We can’t wait to see all your submissions and look forward to naming our CrushIt Award winners!
We recently rolled out a few updates to how we generate links for affiliates. The biggest change is that we now generate Bit.ly links for all promotional URLs and can easily assign a specific creative/landing page, plus we can add additional metadata such as campaign channel and content. This will make it much easier to see which links are driving the most traffic and conversions for you. Also, you can see which links are underperforming and you can use that data to help diagnose any potential issues.
Please reach out to your account representatives to get this set up and if you would like to start upgrading your existing links to take advantage of the additional reporting metrics. The more unique Boost Links you create the more data you will have at your disposal. Remembers folks' knowledge is power!
