Hey Sellers!

So, Prime Day? It's time we had a serious talk about it. Now that Prime availability levels are back to pre-COVID19 levels, coupled with Amazon blacking out vacation for warehouse workers from October 13-20 and limiting Lightning Deals for Sellers, it looks like we have an (un)official start date. Amazon still has not officially announced it, many signs point to Tuesday, October 13th, 2020. Just over two weeks away! Eeeek!

So, what can consumers expect on Prime Day this year? Well, for starters, it's always been in July in the middle of a quieter retail period. It's never been in October before, and right before Black Friday and Cyber Monday. However, history tells us there will be deals upon deals by FBA sellers and Amazon itself. Amazon's just released a pile of new products, which are always including in the mix of Prime Day deals. 


Two of our Amazon experts, Dustin and Kris, sat down earlier this week on Facebook Live to look at the potential for this Prime Day for Sellers and chat about tips and optimizations Sellers can take for Prime Day: 

  • Prep for Prime Day

  • New marketing ideas to drive traffic to your listings

  • How to gain organic rank now to rank better on Prime Day

  • Budget strategies for Prime Day

  • Pricing strategies

  • Coupon tips

  • How Amazon's new review "request review" system can help you on Prime Day

  • How to optimize your listings now

  • New Lightning Deal opportunities

  • and a lot more!
