Benefits of Using Vine as a Seller
There are many benefits of using Vine as an Amazon seller. One of the top benefits of using Vine is that it allows sellers to receive up to 30 reviews. Compared to an alternative review program that Amazon has offered in the past, this exceeds the five reviews from the Early Review Program. Each review should be well thought out and detail-oriented because Amazon selects the customers who will leave reviews called Vine Voices. The Vine Voices are chosen based on their reviewer rank on Amazon. It is common to see reviews from these customers including images and videos of the products. The reviews are also meant to provide feedback, breaking down the use of the product. This might include pros and cons lists and will help future customers to make a decision on their purchase. Customer reviews are one of the most productive assets of a successful Amazon listing. Having a high-quality review section can drastically improve your product’s conversion rates. Utilizing the Vine program can boost your best seller ranking as a whole. There is also no enrollment fee for the Vine program.
How can I get started?
To get started with Vine, you will open the Advertising tab on Seller Central and click on Vine. To begin enrolling ASINs, you will enter them independently to see if they qualify.
