The results for Amazon’s two-day event (June 21-22, 2021) once again broke records. Adobe Analytics estimates that sales during Amazon Prime Day 2021 grew 6.1% versus 2020, despite lingering economic headwinds. HINGE COMMERCE is thrilled that we well outpaced the Amazon average. Overall, our expert services clients grew Prime Day dollar sales by +34% (5.5X better than the average sellers on Amazon)! Many of our clients experienced double-digit or even triple-digit growth vs. last Prime Day.
Some secrets to our success:
1) We leveraged a variety of innovative Promotion strategies that allowed our clients to showcase a wider selection, run the promotion for the entirety of the event, and promote new products even if the new item was introduced after Amazon’s promotion submission deadlines.
2) We developed an Amazon Advertising (AMS) strategy in conjunction with the product promotion strategy, utilizing Sponsored Display campaigns in addition to Sponsored Products and Sponsored Brand Banner and Video advertising.
3) We also ran a test for some of our clients of special Prime Day storefront pages. The results were stunning: strong sales figures and storefront visits showed that the Prime Day storefront pages paired with our Amazon sponsored brand ads worked.
