Storefront Creative Services

Aurelius Accelerate’s creative team are experienced at designing, building or just improving customised Amazon storefronts for brands. There are lots of advantages to having a storefront, as long as you are the registered brand owner. The Amazon Storefont can drive awareness of your brand and product line.

Careful information architecture matters such that tabs are clear and keep the homepage uncluttered. While it’s also tempting to go all out on call to actions it is essential to keep the page on brand throughout. Careful consideration should also be given to copy, ensuring it is tonally consistent and on brand. Video is also easily overlooked and key to re-enforcing your brand values or introducing new innovative products.

Other key considerations include thorough testing via mobile, depending on the market 80% + of sales will be driven via mobile. Once thoroughly tested the short form URL can be used in wider marketing and wrapped to ensure clear tracking.

Finally ensuring that ad creative mirrors the storefront look, feel and brand values is essentially. Using our inexpensive creative pre-testing can minimise any wasted media and / or creative costs.
