The Challenges

Amazon Re-Selling Products – Pillowflex is a well-known brand. Thanks to the quality of their pillows, they are well positioned in the customer’s mind; however, sales on Amazon were not reflecting this. Amazon started to re-sell the returns they got as used, which meant that customers were receiving subpar pillows that were used and not living up to Pillowflex standards.

Creative – The brand was experiencing a lot of returns as customers didn’t know which size they needed and how to select the pillow insert that would look the best for their sham.

PPC – There were only Sponsored Products campaigns running, and no strategy to add more advertising styles.

Catalog –  Amazon mixed the parentages, type of pillows, and some were not displaying the correct sizing on the product page.

The Approach

In order to define our strategy, we started by analyzing our target market and its size. 

We then followed a plan integrated with the following elements:

Marketing & Design
  • We defined our ideal customer’s primary persona, purchasing Pillowflex Pillow products, using data from Amazon Analytics, reviews, and other information available on Amazon platform.
  • By gathering the aforementioned data we created captivating A+ Content, Infographics and Copywriting to address main customer pain points & concerns. To reduce returns that have a big impact on the bottom line.
Catalog fixes
  • We reviewed all the parentages so we could troubleshoot inconsistencies on sizing, this is a recurrent Amazon catalog issue and needs to be addressed regularly as Amazon updating the catalog prone to this error.
Advertisement & PPC

There was no clear strategy on how to increase market share, we created different campaign types:

  • Sponsored Product Ads – Targeting main competitors, main keywords & long tail keywords that bring sales
  • Sponsored Display Ads – Targeting high-converting categories and appearing at top of search results as often as possible.
  • Sponsored Brand Ads – Increase Brand Reach and awareness with competition keywords
  • Defensive Campaigns – Target our listings, so our products appear everywhere on our product display pages.

We continuously create value through posts, so customers looking for solutions know our products.

Conversion Rate
  • Even after optimizing the listings, we felt there was more opportunity for improvement. We ran AB title tests and discovered that a short title increased the conversion rate for these items.
  • We continuously test main images, A+ Content to stay in trend within Amazon so that we can increase the conversion rate.
