If you are selling on Amazon for the first time, there are a few things you need to consider to optimize for conversion. Here are some tips to consider when building your Amazon image marketing strategy to make your life easier.

Don’t promise, but deliver - Overpromising and not delivering can ruin a company's reputation. When you strategize your marketing campaign, highlight testimonials, and reviews to gain your customers' trust.
