Use your product photos wisely 

Did you know that one of the best assets you have to convert clicks to sales is your product images? It’s true! While Amazon’s TOS stipulates that you need to have the product pictured behind a pure white background with no additional graphics - that’s just the featured image! You can use the remaining seven images to highlight what makes your product stand out from the competition. Consider using comparison shots to show how your product is made from a better quality than your competitors. To hear Scott and Greg expand on this topic, make sure to catch this episode of The Amazing Seller!
