Beyond Amazon: Building a Real Brand
The allure of Amazon lies in its massive customer base. However, most sellers make a crucial mistake: they focus solely on the Amazon platform, neglecting to build a brand identity outside of it. This approach creates a fragile business model vulnerable to disruptions like account suspensions or stockouts.
The key lies in creating a real brand that resonates with customers and solves their problems. Successful brands aren't just "opportunity seekers" jumping on the latest trends with tools like Helium 10 or Jungle Scout. They're entrepreneurs passionate about solving real problems and building a loyal following.

Why Build External Traffic?
Here's the magic formula: by cultivating organic traffic to your brand outside of Amazon, you can dominate the platform itself. External traffic sources diversify your sales channels and mitigate risks associated with relying solely on Amazon.
Here are some key benefits:

Increased Brand Authority: External traffic establishes you as an authority in your niche, boosting your credibility and trust with potential customers.
Improved Organic Ranking on Amazon: Amazon's A9 algorithm favors products with high click-through rates (CTR). External traffic drives more visitors to your listings, improving your organic ranking.
Safety Net Against Disruptions: Even if you encounter issues like account suspensions or stockouts, your external audience remains engaged, allowing you to maintain sales momentum.

Building Your Traffic Engine: Content is King
The foundation of your perpetual sales machine is valuable content. Start by creating blog posts that function as extended advertorials. Focus on the problems your products solve, not just the products themselves.
For example, if you sell eyelid wipes, your blog post might be titled "How to Get Rid of a Stye in 2 Simple Steps." The content would educate readers about styes, their causes, and effective treatments, naturally integrating your eyelid wipes as part of the solution.

Strategic Use of Affiliate Links (Amazon Attribution)
While Amazon's affiliate program has undergone changes, the core principle remains: you can earn commissions by directing traffic to Amazon listings through your content. Now, with Amazon Attribution clicks, you can earn back 10% on qualifying purchases within 90 days.
Travis Zigler, our guide, shares his experience using attribution links. He's had instances where attribution conversions exceeded the cost of Google Ads!

The Power of Google Ads: Targeting the Problem, Not Just the Product
Most sellers make the mistake of targeting product-based keywords on Google Ads (e.g., "eyelid wipes"). This can be expensive, with clicks costing $1-2 each. However,
