Best way to Load Image Links to Amazon via Excel Template

Best way to Load Image Links to Amazon Template Upload on Excel

If you have dozens of skus or more to load to Amazon either via Seller Central or Vendor Central, you will benefit greatly from some data management techniques. Loading photos via links is often the easiest and best solution.

If you own your own website:

If you are a private labeler you may not have your own website. If you do have your own website you can easily link to the images from there. Be sure to link to the image file, not the webpage.

If you don’t own a domain

If you don’t own your own website or domain, I recommend using imgur. There’s a specific way to do this. Upload the image like normal at https://imgur.com/upload
amazon template upload images bulk
After you upload… On the image once uploaded right click and view in new tab. Save that link url in Google sheet on sku it is for. The right click view in new tab links directly to the image Instead of the social profile.

If you load the bad example it will fail to load to Amazon.

If you use the good example, it will however.

Another benefit to this is you keep a data file of all images by sku. So that went Amazon’s catalog inevitabily bugs or doesn’t show your assets, you can easily reload. Additionally if you ever need to swap an image, or add another to the list of currently loaded, you can do so in mass easily.

If after loading your images, you may still need to ticket Amazon to get them to reflect on the front end. Easy to file, but tactical 3-5 mins per ASIN. We at MyAmazonGuy manage this all the time for clients should your catalog needs arise.

I was fortunate to be part of MAG's first batch of its Advertising Internship Program. The timing was perfect for me as I was looking for an opportunity to learn more about Amazon PPC and at the same time to have hands-on training to work on accounts.  

 

When I started my internship, I listed down the things I wanted to learn. And I am happy to say that I've ticked all the boxes! My most favorite was "Optimization Using Bulk Files”. Bulk files and I, we did not get along at first, it was so scary seeing all those data! But I had a great mentor who guided me along the way. He patiently taught me step by step on how to process the data. He was very enthusiastic in answering all of my questions. He supported me until I gained the confidence in uploading my first, second, third (and so on) bulk uploads. 

 

The biggest advantage in working with MAG (and I must say one thing that I always look forward to every week) is its Weekly Ads Training. Every week, we discuss various topics about PPC. Interns/Ads Specialists/Ads Managers, we all share knowledge, information, and updates about PPC. During our discussions, we exchange ideas and feedback. It became an avenue not just to learn a skill, but also to clear any vague or ambiguous PPC topics. 

 

For me, the biggest disadvantage is the work schedule. As an Intern, I have to follow EST timing. The time difference from my location was only 8 hours, but being a morning person, I really struggled to keep myself awake. But if you are a night owl, then this will not be a problem for you.

 

So if you are considering joining the MAG Advertising Internship Program, my advice to you is to take action - APPLY NOW! The knowledge that you will gain and the skill that you will develop from this program will be invaluable. And who knows? From being an Intern, you might be the next one to be promoted as Jr. Ads Specialist!
