Factors to Consider while Developing a Product Page for Amazon Associates

Amazon Affiliate Support is all about Marketing

Amazon Affiliate support for WooCommerce Dropshipping is all about marketing. It gives you the environment where you can use your marketing skills by creating a strong SEO strategy and content filled with keywords that make your page rank better on the search engines. All these pieces of information should be directed to your Call-to-Action button. 

Write compelling statements for your call-to-action button for better conversion rates. That’ll help you boost your organic audience. 

Role of Call to Action

Do not mention the Price

We won’t suggest adding prices, as prices are volatile on Amazon. While working as an  Amazon Associates, the main focus is on marketing leading to conversions. Keep Regular price and Sale price empty and will not display any price. 


Role of Call-to-Action 

Call-to-Action for Amazon Affiliate products will redirect your customers to the targeted Amazon product page. We have seen that a Call-to-Action with good transition and position results in better conversion rates. 

No matter you’re driving traffic from different search engines, email marketing or using social media, you must have to test your call-to-action text, product information and button design. Yet, there is no rule of thumb for a compelling call-to-action. It can be done by testing variants that you can be sure of what works for you.

How You will Get Notified about Click-through and Conversions

When potential customers visit any product and click on the Call-to-Action button they’ll be redirected to Amazon’s product page automatically.

When your potential customers click on the call-to-action button, you’ll see a grey bar. And when you’ll have a conversion and earned a fee or bounty you’ll see green and blue spikes at Amazon Associates’ Dashboard.
