1. Optimize your listing for Sales:
Poor listing on Amazon, your money is definitely going down the drain, why? Because when nobody is clicking your listing on Amazon, how do you think that your product will start selling? Many sellers waste their money on Amazon if they have a poor listing for sales. So, what to do and how to do it?
Start with, make your listings short, that are easier to read, and can be read even in a single glance. Next, make sure your listings have no spelling and grammatical mistakes. The sentences should be short but they should make sense, tenses should be properly used and the use of active voice would be much better.
The best listing is the one that converts viewers into customers; otherwise, it is of no use. People often mistake listing optimization with keyword optimization, well both are important, but they are different.
A well-written listing that gives all relevant and quick detail about your product and convinces people to buy your product is the best one. You should set it as a standard when optimizing your listing for sales on Amazon.
2. Better Product Images:

Make sure to pick out relevant and attractive pictures for your products, so that the picture can leave a good impression on the viewer and it becomes a compulsion for him to check out your product. Buying your product is another thing; it will at least increase the number of clicks for sure. Poor quality images will be like a thorn on your flower, make sure to avoid them as much as you can. A good quality picture reflects the purity and authenticity of the product. Believe me; investing in product photography is worth it!

If someone else is offering the same product with fewer prices, your good quality pictures and convincing comments will bring you no good. Price competitively but carefully.
