Customers are always actively looking for the best deals on Amazon, especially during holiday season and Amazon events. Running Promotions (Deals and Vouchers) on Amazon can grow your sales, brand awareness and reviews!
Deals and Vouchers can be a useful lever to promote your brand and make your products easier for customers to discover. Highlight your products by gaining visibility on the deals page.
Volume of sales
Promotions can be a tool to help increase sales by offering discounts on products. Promote your best sellers or reduce overstock and free up storage.
Run Promotions during event periods such as Prime Day or Black Friday and benefit from Amazon's online and offline marketing efforts which aim to maximize traffic on the event page.
The Top Deal on Sunday went really well. We were expecting an increase but not by this much. For the future, we will consider Top Deals in our stock planning.

Combine your Deal with a Sponsored Product Campaign
