As an Amazon seller, you must know the importance of keywords of your listings. This is the major index that runs your ads campaign on. Basically, sellers are able to turn on two basic campaign systems at the same time – Automatic and Manual. In auto campaign, you can find the key terms which bring more traffic and orders to your product from the machine-selected key term list, you can test these terms in your manual campaign. The manual campaign allows you to choose your key terms and match types. Be aware of the broad match. For most of the time, it is the way to find key terms for phrase match and exact match. Spend more budget on the last two match types rather than broad match.
Check your campaign reports (Auto Campaign and Manual Campaign) more frequently before the Prime Day. Note Down those terms which have most CTR or are in the trend of dramatic rising. Furthermore, test some new terms that relate to the newest product trend. Negative keywords are also a useful tool to help you to save your budget with a more specific search result.

You may notice that most of your sales come from several products. These are hot listings of your store, your money bringer. A large portion of your campaign budget should go to these products. At the same time, you may have listings that still waiting for further campaign results. DO NOT waste your budget on them, even prime day is the best time to test campaigns’ performance.

4.Gain Traffic From Other Channels
Although Amazon prime day is only for Amazon members, potential customers are everywhere. In addition to the in-site campaign, sending your deals’ information to social media platforms to gain extra traffic is also a good approach.
Call to Action plays a critical role in this method. If you are running social media accounts as a part of your business, then let your followers know how much money they will save on that day, how long will your deal last, what special combinations you will have in your store for the Prime Day. Distributing Prime Day deals and pictures of your products with these tags to attract more new customers to your store. Remember, your posts shall have hashtags like #lighting deal, #AmazonPrimeDay, and#PrimeDayDeals… These are going to be hot tags on Prime Day.
It is simple, you just got something for sell. In the prime day, customers will wipe your shelves. Get your inventory prepared for this big day, make sure your suppliers could send the number of goods you require to the warehouse. It is better to transfer inventories of all your products to FBA (Fulfill-by-Amazon) to make sure orders could arrive at the customers’ door as soon as possible. Wipeout low-in-sale products from your inventory to save more storage space for those hot-selling ones to boost your sales.
