How can you sell best on Amazon during the end of the school year?

In the following lines you will find the tips we think will be very useful to all sellers.

Market research

Naturally our first suggestion is to conduct a market research in order to identify which of your products might have a peak demand during the end of the school year. Also find which products can be easily sourced to expand your product portfolio in relation to this period of the year.

You can then identify the product categories that are most requested by parents and students during this period and select those that are most suitable for sale.

Product page optimization

The second step is product page optimization. This is a key step in improving your hopes of being visible on the marketplace. Use relevant keywords in descriptions, product features and images. Create detailed descriptions that place clear emphasis on which benefits your products can give to customers.

Special offers and promotions

Consider offering discounts and special promotions to attract customers. As studies on consumer habits show, the end of the school year is a time when many people are a little more inclined to buy. Arranging convenient bargains can be the tool that could facilitate their purchase.

Packaging for the occasion

You might also choose to invest in another very important marketing element such as packaging. Customize it for the occasion by adopting an attractive school theme. Remember that dedicated packaging can sometimes make all the difference when customers have to choose between similar products.

As we have already mentioned, quality customer service builds customer loyalty. It can generate positive feedback, thus knocking down the most frequent cause of every salesman’s nightmare: having good products but poor sales…
