Try improve your listing, pause the keywords that unable to convert, and check the pricing, see if you can find out the reason why it didn't convert

Is it critical to have many products? Is it possible to survive with 1 or 2 products?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
20:48
@natasha it’s possible. =)

Hi guys, thanks for sparing your time with us! I have 3 questions:1. Are you able to share your best practices insights for getting high ranking in search2. What do you think is the most useful brand registry feature3. Product enquiry: Account manager say usually they will reply based on our product descriptions and info, in cases of escalation, how does it work?
matilda

I have a few questions:1) When you are new, how do you get reviews? Because without reviews it’s hard to get sales2) Is the brand registry worth it? How much difference does it make to generate sales?3) seems like ads are pretty expensive. Do u think it is still worth it?
Eben Lau
26:18
Yes, at the moment, I have no rating and reviews as a new seller at Amazon USA. I have enrolled for Vine program but so far no news from Amazon
Mark Chew
27:30
Hihi, i got a 2-part question. How do you see your overall net profit margin over the years, given that Amazon is increasingly more competitive with more sellers has your margin/ROI been increasing/stay the same or decreasing? What overall strategies do you adopt in staying competitive and profitable, and prevent race to the bottom, esp in US market. Thanks

I currently use Helium 10 for product research, but I would also like to try manual methods. What are the best ways to get product ideas (potential winning product, but with few competition)?
Julius Tan

Bumping this1. Are you able to share your best practices insights for getting high ranking in search2. What do you think is the most useful brand registry feature3. Product enquiry: Account manager say usually they will reply based on our product descriptions and info, in cases of escalation, how does it work?
KC, Amazon Seller Ambassador
39:01
about the ranking, it's a bit technical, but think like Amazon, what Amazon wants and why would they put you on top
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
43:18
@Julius and @Matilda brand registry has many features and all of them add up to help you sell more product. i highly recommend it. but for me personally, i only trademarked my brand after making enough profit to afford the trademark fees. as in, i proved that my products can sell before investing in brand registry.
NATASHA TAN
43:49
Is it advisable to start with a product that I have been selling offline? Since I already has regular supplier and existing stock.
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
44:17
@Julius can you elaborate on what you mean in point 3 (re escalation)?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
45:07
@matilda ads are a must, in my opinion. whether they’re expensive or not depends on what you buy, how you manage your budgets, and what your strategy is
Hk Chia

how do u start selling in other markets. eg i see some US brands selling in amz SG but delivered from US vs others r delivering from amz SG directly. what is the difference betw these 2 in terms of settings?
Elim Liu
48:36
We have been selling on amazon.sg for a few months, and we have a plan to sell to other countries, May I know how to get us assigned with an account manager to guide us?
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
51:32
@elim amazon is a self-service platform. you should be able to find the help you need on seller university, seller support and from seller communities like this.
nw
52:57
Would you recommend Sourcing Agent?
KC, Amazon Seller Ambassador
53:04
Chia, US brand selling in AMZ SG, it's some setting for US seller that provide shipping to oversea countries. Same as we selling in US we can ship to Mexico Canada utilizing our US invenotry

@elim Here are some links to the Seller University guides :)Amazon.sg Seller University: https://sell.amazon.com.sg/learnAmazon.com Seller University: https://sell.amazon.com/learn

while deliver from AMZ SG means the seller has inventory in SG warehouse, or the seller actually located in SG

@matilda Amazon has a Service Provider Network you can visit to find a lawyer. For me, before the SPN launched, I googled lawyers and went with https://onlinetrademarkattorneys.com/
KC, Amazon Seller Ambassador

Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
01:03:56
@manuel there’s no guarantee whether companies you interact with online are reliable. the only way is to test them. Ask as many questions as you can, order a small quantity, if good, order more, build the relationship with them over time.
Debbie - Amazon Seller Ambassador
01:06:34
