11 Nov prime day 2020: 414% Average Lift for Vendo Brand Partners
Average Lift Across All Vendo Brand Partners
Average Growth Across All of Amazon in 2019
Prime Day is consistently the #1 biggest sales day each year on Amazon, with an astounding 25%+ of the USA population making a purchase.
Prime Day 2020 was no different – it marked the 2 biggest days ever for small- and medium- sized businesses, with over $3.5 billion in sales, a nearly 60% year-over-year increase. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise though considering the events closest ever proximity to the holiday season (62% of shoppers bought holiday gifts during Prime Day this year), as well as the estimated 5-year acceleration in ecommerce due to COVID.
What makes the difference between a brand that really knocks it out of the park and a brand that sees a mild lift? A comprehensive strategy that incorporates both on and off-Amazon marketing and advertising strategies. At Vendo, we recommend leveraging a blend of off-Amazon tactics (i.e. Paid Media, Organic Media, Email Marketing, SMS Marketing) as well as on-Amazon tactics (calculated Prime Day advertising plan, deliberate setup of Amazon deal types, and a strategic 3-phase deal structure aimed at leveraging the A10 algorithm leading in to – and out of – the main event).
We know what it takes to win.
