How To Maximize Your Amazon Product Video on Amazon FBA?

How To Maximize Your Amazon Product Video on Amazon FBA?

Have you ever spent many hours fussing over every detail of an Amazon product description, only to discover that your conversion rates are consistently low? Consider this: how often have you clicked on a listing with a video and seen how it works or why it’s better than others? 

Well, the same goes for your potential customers. Product videos aren’t new, but Amazon first restricted them to Brand Registry sellers. Amazon has expanded its video listing rules. The option is now available to all three-month sellers.

Video Will Revolutionize Amazon Ads

There is no better option than an Amazon listing video when considering a possible return on investment. Research shows that forty percent of consumers will view a listing’s video, with eighty percent of those viewers sticking around for the duration.

 When you add in the fact that these buyers are 3.6 times more likely to make a purchase, you have a winning sales formula. Where should you post your video? Yes, practically everywhere. Product videos can be used on Amazon, your D2C website, social media, and marketing. 

Videos are great since you can use a handful to cover Amazon, your website, and everywhere in between. We push building something long and then cutting it down for different channels.

Amazon will prioritize your video, so shoppers will view it first when they visit your product listing. You can place it in your storefront if you’re brand-registered. Optimizing your Amazon Storefront can boost sales and sales per visitor.

Paid efforts can also make use of video, with examples being Sponsored brand videos and Amazon’s cost-per-click ads (will get into video ads in a bit).

Brands can also make use of user-generated content, like more reviews on Amazon Vine or YouTube, to enhance their listings.

Product Videos on Amazon FBA: 5 Popular Types

Depending on your store’s needs, you can make a variety of product videos. But we’ll stick to five kinds here. We go into detail on why they work and provide examples to help you understand it better. 

Lifestyle Product Video

Lifestyle videos show your product in action and use real-world images to explain how it will benefit your target audience. In comparison to animated formats, lifestyle videos (usually 30-60 seconds long) have a 30% greater click-through rate. 

Animated Product Video

Make a lasting impression with engaging 30- to 60-second animated animations that highlight your product’s value and practicality. To make the most of your brand registration, display your products on your Storefront and in Video Ads. 

Product Highlight Video

On Amazon FBA, you could see this sort of video on the product page of a seller rather often. This type of video often lasts around one or two minutes and allows the seller to highlight all of the product’s attributes for the benefit of the buyer.

You must have an incredibly clear view of your object to upload a video of this kind. You can also include detailed shots of your product in action. An optional voiceover narration of the product’s features and specs is also available.

Instructions For Product Usage

These kinds of videos are called explainer videos. Promote your goods in the best light possible by showing prospective buyers how to use this explanatory video. Customers who have never heard of your product before will appreciate the video’s high level of explanation. 

Provide a detailed explanation of how to use your product as the primary subject of your video. Another option for greater understanding is to use voice overs. 

 Comparison Video

Most of the time, people watch comparison videos to see how one product compares to another. To demonstrate their product’s superiority over competing products, vendors in these movies sometimes choose one or two items that are comparable to their own. 

Because of the potential for defamation suits, it is important to avoid mentioning any particular brands or franchises in comparative videos. Your video may not be approved by Amazon FBA if you proceed with that.

Amazon Video: 3 Tried-And-True Methods

To make sellers stand out, Amazon periodically rolls out new services. Unfortunately, some vendors are unable to utilize the updated tools. If you want to be considered, you need to have either sales experience or a well-known brand. When it comes to uploading videos, everything is the same.

A product page video can be uploaded in one of three methods at the moment:

  • Manage your video uploads and edits
  • A+ premium listing page setup
  • Ask for customer-submitted video reviews.

 Upload And Manage Videos Yourself

Signing up with Brand Registry is the first step in creating your own Amazon product videos. To be eligible to apply, your target market must have an active registered trademark. 

You can tell your products are original and not part of a knockoff, dropship, or reseller operation because of the trademark. Following approval by the Brand Registry, the six easy procedures to post a video are:

  • After logging into your Amazon Seller Central account, go to the top header and click on the inventory tab. Then, choose Upload and Manage Videos.
  • File size should not exceed the limit.
  • Click Upload Video.
  • Drag and drop your product video matching Amazon’s guidelines.
  • Enter the video title, thumbnail, and ASIN.
  • After uploading, check the video and click Submit.
  • Amazon will check it once to guarantee TOS compliance, and it may take up to 7 business days to display on your listing.

Create an A+Premium Listing Page

Product listings with A+ content can stand out with enhanced images and graphics. A+ content is free to Brand registry vendors but lacks product listing videos. To make your product listing stand out, A+ Premium content enables you to incorporate movies in your product carousel and description for a fee.

However, Amazon exclusively invites large, established firms to Vendor Central to access A+ premium content. Sellers’ brands must:

  • Get a yearly revenue of $1 million or more
  • Establish yourself in your specialty.
  • Keep track of happy, satisfied customers and the service they received

Additionally, premium A+ listings can cost a pretty penny, anything from two hundred thousand to five hundred thousand dollars for each product.

Here is how to upload a video using a vendor central account and A+ premium content if you have the means to do so:

  • To share a video, first choose a file-sharing tool like iCloud, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc., then upload the file.
  • Press the “Contact Us” button after logging into your vendor central account.
  • To fix video upload problems, go to the Image and Video menu, then choose Video.
  • The next set of instructions can be found on the “Contact Us” page.
  • Replace “Upload Video” with the new case title
  • Describe the problem by pasting the generated link.
  • Type in the ASIN you’re after.
  • After that, hit the “Submit” button.

If you want to share a video on Amazon, it can take up to seventy-four hours for them to check if it’s legal.

Video Reviews by Amazon Customers

A customer-generated video is the most engaging and instructive kind of video. All customers have the opportunity to upload a video while writing a review, so they may share their experiences with the goods, during unboxing, and more. 

One drawback is that you, the vendor, don’t get to decide what the videos are like or how good they are. Asking clients to record a video review is your only option. Make sure your product lives up to the expectations of your customers. Unfortunately, a large number of Amazon customer review videos feature broken or malfunctioning products.
