In this article, we will outline how to grow your sales using sales funnels for Amazon sellers.Sales funnels that leverage external traffic (such as Facebook Ads or Google AdWords) are a powerful way to boost your sales velocity, BSR, and rankings. By mastering Amazon sales funnels, you will grow your business faster, have more successful launches and get an edge over your competition. Sounds good? Let's get startedâ¦What is an Amazon sales funnel?A sales funnel refers to the buying process that you lead your customers through when they are purchasing your products.First, let's start with the most common Amazon sales funnel mistake.Are you making this crucial sales funnel mistake?There is a common mistake sellers make when it comes to external traffic. This mistake is to drive traffic straight to your product listing.You should never drive traffic straight to your product listing. Why? No matter which traffic source you use, it wo not be nearly as targeted as Amazon's internal traffic. By sending unqualified, untargeted, traffic straight to your listing you will run into two problems:1) Low salesMost of the people you drive to your listing wo not be ready to buy your product at full-price immediately. Unlike people who are browsing Amazon, they might not be interested in buying right now.The result will be that your external traffic campaign wo not be a big success. You will end up spending quite a lot of money on ads, without seeing much of a return.2) Low conversion ratesLow sales translates to low conversion rates. Driving untargeted traffic to your Amazon listing will negatively impact the overall conversion rate of your listing. What is a conversion rate? Conversion rate = number of sales / number of people viewing your product. So for example, if 100 people view your listing and 10 buy, your conversion rate is 10%.Why does your conversion rate matter? Many experienced sellers believe that conversion rate is a ranking factor in Amazon's ranking algorithm. This means that lowering your conversion rate by driving external traffic straight to your listing could negatively impact your rankings. In other words, if Amazon sees that your page is not making a lot sales for the number of people who visit it, Amazon will direct less people to your page!A mindset shift: Why capturing emails is more important than salesThe key to a successful external traffic campaign is to understand that, in the short-term, capturing emails is more important than profits.Why is capturing emails so important?You will be able to:Build your own launch list.

What is a landing page?A landing page is a web page that has been designed for one single objective. In our case, that objective is to capture an email. It looks something like this:Crafting a compelling offer for your Amazon sales funnel"Why would anyone give away their email on a landing page?"It's simple. Give people a compelling reason, and they will be more than happy to part with their email address. There are two common types of lead magnets that work well for Amazon sellers.1) Give away a discountThe easiest way to get people to give you their email address is to give them a big discount. (The best way to do this is to set up single-use promo codes, which protect your inventory.)This method is highly effective for a number of reasons:You will be able to build an email list.The people who click-through to your Amazon listing will almost certainly buy, increasing your conversion rates.
