So, you want to increase the visibility of your Amazon store and listings? I don’t blame you. Amazon sells more than 353 million products, so it can be hard to stand out from the crowd.
If you’re anything like me, you check Amazon product reviews before you make a purchase. If someone doesn’t have any reviews, I take my business elsewhere. It’s as simple as that. It seems that I’m not the only one. 84 percent of people trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations from family and friends. If you use Amazon to sell products, reviews are critical to your success.
Now, you can incorporate video reviews into your store and product listings. They’re completely different from the regular text-based reviews you see on the platform and help set you apart.
Think of Amazon Video Reviews as visual testimonials — short videos created by customers that capture their real experiences with your product. Customers can show the world what your product can really do.
Amazon introduced customer video reviews back in 2007. But you won’t notice many video reviews in the customer reviews section of product listings, even though they can be much more effective in showcasing real product experiences.
With Amazon’s expansion into video, there are several additional places where video reviews can be published to help grow your business.
Video reviews can appear in the following places on Amazon’s marketplace:
Amazon Video Reviews are important because consumers engage better with videos than they do with regular text. Research shows that viewers retain around 95 percent of information when they watch a video compared to 10 percent when they read a piece of text.
It’s no wonder that user-generated videos perform three times better than branded videos in Amazon’s Related Video Shorts section.
