The 2021 Amazon Holiday Readiness Checklist
As the holiday season quickly approaches, brands and sellers on Amazon cannot afford to wait on preparing their strategies for this critical final quarter of 2021.
Following last year’s unprecedented Q4 success for Amazon and its merchants, Q4 2021 is also shaping up to be an impressive period, with Feedvisor analysts projecting 25%-40% year-over-year sales growth.
Explore holistic strategies and tips for optimizing your advertising, pricing, inventory, content, and more to drive profitable growth on Amazon with our expert’s checklist to the 2021 holiday season.
Preparing for the 2021 Holiday Season on Amazon
As brands and retailers start preparing their Amazon strategies, it is important that they take into account all of the key factors at play with the upcoming holiday season, such as increased ad spend. During last year’s Q4, for example, CPC rose more than 28% for the Turkey 5 period in 2020 compared to 2019.
While Feedvisor projects Amazon’s Q4 2021 sales to grow by more than 48% compared to Q1 2021, businesses must still ensure they are planning ahead to deal with the ongoing effects of the pandemic, including supply chain issues that can impact fulfillment and inventory. Additionally, brands and retailers must ensure they are investing strategically into their advertising and making holiday plans as soon as possible in order to outpace competitors.
From pricing and promotions to advertising and inventory, explore this checklist to make sure you have everything in place to grow sales and profits on Amazon this holiday season.
