Hello & Welcome

The last months have been a challenge for everyone, to say the least, and we’re starting to see some trends in consumer habits that may affect marketing for some time to come. There’s a silver lining, and we look at some of that data in Seller Insight.

Amazon is hosting its own event dedicated to helping sellers succeed, coming up the first of September. It’s called Amazon Accelerate, and you can learn more about it in The World of Amazon.

Have a great week!



Request A Review

Amazon’s Review Request feature is an easy, effective way to solicit — and get — customer product reviews. We’ve heard from sellers seeing up to three times greater customer response rate using this feature, as opposed to sending an email themselves asking for a review.

It probably shouldn’t be a surprise Amazon’s own system gets better traction.

By default the Review Request must be triggered manually in Amazon within each order. An incredibly time consuming prospect, no matter how effective the result.

Well, in case you missed it we’ve automated that process. It’s in your SellerMail, and you can set it up using the same criteria you use to create any other SellerMail rule.

Many of you are already using this valuable feature, but for those who aren’t, or those who didn’t yet realize it was available, here’s your reminder.

Review Request is available in MBS SellerMail.

Think about it.

Nothing — it’s on the house.

Me: Our relationship is what? Over.


I went to the bookstore and asked if they had anything on turtles.
