Sellers: Maximizing Your Earnings on Prime Day 2024 with Levanta

Woman at their desk tossing cash int he air with excitement.

As Amazon Prime Day approaches, it’s essential to prepare your listings and strategies to maximize your success. Leveraging Levanta can be a game-changer, but there are specific best practices you should follow to ensure you get the most out of this significant sales event. Here’s how you can get ready and optimize your efforts for Prime Day.

1. Adjust Commissions on Specific ASINs

One crucial aspect to keep in mind is the commission structure for any ASINs involved in Prime Day deals. The Amazon Attribution API does not adjust pricing on Lightning deals, meaning commissions are paid on the full price of items, not the discounted price. Standard Prime Day Deals, however, will be reported correctly.

By lowering commissions on ASINs that are Lightning deals, you can ensure that you are not overpaying commissions based on full price rather than the discounted rate. Read more about how to manage your commissions here.

2. Load Deals into Levanta Early

To give creators ample time to generate content for your deals, it’s critical to load them into Levanta as soon as they are confirmed. The earlier your deals are loaded, the better your chances of securing coverage from creators. Early loading not only helps in planning but also increases the likelihood of your deals being featured prominently.

3. Monitor Outstanding Applications

Ensure that you check in on any outstanding applications within your Levanta dashboard. Reviewing and approving applications promptly will maximize your reach and coverage potential. This is especially important during Prime Day when competition for attention is fierce.

Diverse creator strategies are key to maximizing your impact. Discover more about the different types of creators on Levanta and why a diversified strategy is recommended here.

4. Engage with In-App Messages

Reading and responding to all in-app messages from creators is essential. Creators may request samples or need more information about your brand to feature your products effectively during Prime Day. Prompt and clear communication can significantly enhance your chances of being highlighted by top creators.

5. Set Up Increased Commissions for Top Creators

Consider setting up increased commissions for your top-performing creators to incentivize them further. Higher commissions can motivate creators to prioritize your products, leading to better coverage and higher sales.
