Exclusive Interview with AmafestUK Speaker – Jess Howes

AmafestUK , a dedicated full-day Amazon Seller’s Conference is less than a month away. The venue and drinks are sponsored by UK Fast, Manchester.

This conference holds a lot of value to both Seller Central and Vendor central users with talks from over 10 world class Amazon experts.  The talks include optimisation, advertising to private labels. Check out our in-house marketplace expert’s interview.

 Jess Howes – Increase Conversions & Sales with Amazon Listing Optimisation


AmafestUK_Jess Howes

What can people expect to take away from your talk at Amafest 2019?

Tips on how to optimise their product pages to help improve conversion rate and sales.

Can you tell us a little bit about your background? What experience do you have working with Amazon?

I started my career working at an agency where I worked with several e-commerce clients. Then, 3 years ago I started working client-side for a company, which is where I first started working with Amazon. 3 years later and I am now freelance, working with some of the best UK brands.

Do you think Amazon is a threat to traditional brick and mortar retail?

Definitely. Amazon is making it easier and easier and more convenient for shoppers to sit at home and order. Especially now you can order and even set up repeat orders via Alexa!

What are the main benefits of selling products on Amazon as opposed to other platforms such as eBay?

Amazon has spent time building the trust of consumers, which gives them a competitive edge over eBay.They also have the well-trusted and well-loved Prime programme. It is also a benefit in itself that in 2018 it was estimated 51% of shoppers started their online shopping journey on Amazon, and that 35% of UK online spend goes through Amazon. 

What’s your top tip for someone who is just starting to sell on Amazon and someone who is trading for a few years?

Optimise product detail pages for search, and continually improve them by adding new keywords, additional content (EBC/A+ Content). Amazon is a crowded marketplace full of competition and shoppers aren’t just going to stumble upon your product. You need to help them find it.

Experience: eBay Seller’s Customer Support

eBay Seller Customer Support 1

I am simply writing about my recent customer experience on eBay.

On 14th July 2014 I bought a Power Point controller to use during  16th July #OSWNewport. It was a last minute purchase. I did check it was First class free delivery and seller’s profile. Both assured me that I will get it before the event.

eBay Seller Customer Support 2

After  my quick 2 mins purchase, I received an email saying my item is on its way which was assuring for me. It says all I needed to know, when I should be expecting delivery and there may be delay. It also says to contact the seller just in case there is delay which quite good way of avoiding unnecessary bad feedback. The good part is I received the Power Point Controller on the 16th. Happy days!

eBay Seller Customer Support 3


Here’s another email I received on the 20th asking if everything was OK with my order and requesting to leave feedback.

eBay Seller Customer Support 4

I found the way the seller emailed me at different stages of my purchase cycle was good and I applaud eBay for enabling sellers to do so. As a seller here’s what we need to takeaway:


  1. Send dispatch email after dispatching the order
  2. Mention to contact you if there is any issue with delivery
  3. Check if everything was OK with the order rather than requesting feedback

It is important to update your customer of every stage of purchase cycle which assures them that their order is on its way.

So Well done ! Mylisarz2008  You got 10/10.

Amazon Prime – Brilliant way to lock customers

Customer Retention is the best way to grow your sales over period of time. Customer Retention costs less than acquiring new ones. This is the basic reason businesses try to encourage loyalty. Research shows one of the reason prospective customer do not buy is high shipping cost.

Amazon has cleverly rectified this problem with offering free delivery with minimum annual fee.Amazon’s strategy to lock-in customers with services like Amazon Prime and will help the retailer gain share in the online retail market.

“It also works because it exploits some very simple human psychology. Your best customers enjoy the pleasant, repetitive sensation of profiting from every purchase while your business still nets more money – either from the customer’s greater loyalty, or simply because the revised pricing causes them to spend more on your services overall.”
  Rory Sutherland, Campaignlive

Following Amazon prime strategy will be costly in the short run but will increase sales in a long term.
