Marketplaces (Bol & Amazon)

Ready to extend your online strategy to marketplaces? Or curious about whether marketplaces are suitable for your company and product? Enlist the help of our marketplaces experts.

Creating competitive listings to win

Selling successfully on Marketplaces involves a lot more than most entrepreneurs initially estimate. After all, publishing the products is only the tip of the iceberg.

To achieve the desired sales results, the product listings must be completed as completely as possible. This means that every aspect of the product must be legible on the page.

Think of a title with relevant keywords, but also size information, supporting images and reviews. Once this is in order, it’s time to see where we stand in relation to the competition in terms of shipping costs and delivery time.

Also, not every product is suitable for marketplaces. That’s why our experts offer extensive support in choosing the right strategy on the platforms Bol and Amazon.

    SEO Copywriting for your company

    Marketplaces have been surging in popularity in the retail world lately. It offers a centralized marketplace as an alternative to advertising through your own webshop. Especially the larger online companies are very interesting for this. The Amazon marketplace and Bol marketplaces are good examples of this.

    As an online shopper, you may have noticed that a garment or other item does not come directly from Bol. For smaller webshops in particular, this is a very interesting alternative. This way you can take advantage of the fame of bigger brands and still be in the spotlight.

    Google also wants to take full advantage of this, if you click on the shopping tab when searching for a product, you will see a large selection of products from different providers.

    What is copywriting?

    As a retailer you will have to consider whether offering your products on, for example, the Amazon marketplace is a good idea. There are both advantages and disadvantages to offering your products on marketplaces, especially as a reseller.

    For example, as a reseller you will have to compete against the big brands that sell the same products directly and can offer the products cheaper due to the higher margins. If you are going to sell on Bol.com, you will also be competing directly with Bol’s own products.

    seo copywriting

    It can also lead to cannibalisation of traffic on your own website and perhaps the biggest disadvantage: you lose insight into interesting customer data and contact details. After all, a customer portfolio is also worth a lot.

    On many marketplaces you also have to pay margins to the marketplace itself. These are usually between 8% and 15% of gross turnover. You will have to weigh up whether the extra exposure outweighs the costs of advertising with a marketplace online.

    What is SEO?

    Although there are relatively more disadvantages for resellers than for larger brands to sell directly through a marketplace, selling on Amazon or Bol.com often has a lot of value for the reseller. In addition, you can somewhat offset the disadvantages of advertising on a marketplace. Thus, if you have a good relationship with the brand owner, you can still benefit from good margins.

    With good communication between you as a reseller and the brand owner, you don’t have to compete with each other to the death and it can be advantageous for both parties to sell via a marketplace.

    Why is SEO copywriting important?

    Higher findability

    If your shop is active on a large marketplace like the Bol marketplace or Amazon marketplace, then you know right away that your findability in Google is good. The focus is not on online findability, but on distinguishing yourself on the marketplace itself. This can be done with attractive and complete product descriptions, lots of pictures and of course attractive prices.

    So the extra cost you pay to the marketplace itself is actually paid for in an often much higher reach. As a reseller it is therefore important to make yourself visible on the platform itself, which is often a different strategy than when you want to rank on Google.

    Richer content

    Although we previously mentioned cannibalization as a disadvantage (which it is!), advertising sales through Bol.com or selling through Amazon can also have positive effects on your own webshop. When you create brand awareness through the Bol marketplace, for example, the buyers will also be familiar with your name.

    Should they search for your own products in the future, there is a chance that the customer will search directly on the name of your webshop and will end up at your own webshop.

    This way you benefit from the marketplace without having to pay the extra margin on sales.

    Content plan method

    Just deciding to sell through Bol.com or sell through Amazon doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed success in the marketplace. For this you will need to optimise the presentation of your products, among other things. So it’s important to have a concrete plan in place before you actually move into marketplace advertising. If you engage Ecoteers to do this, we will walk you through the 4 steps below to come up with the best possible marketplace plan.

    We will discuss your needs and develop a clear plan to help you sell successfully on Bol and Amazon. This way you can be sure that the presentation of your products is in order and that there is a clear strategy behind advertising via a marketplace.

    SEO Copywriting: Frequently Asked Questions

    If your shop is active on a large marketplace like the Bol marketplace or Amazon marketplace, then you know right away that your findability in Google is good. The focus is not on online findability, but on distinguishing yourself on the marketplace itself.

    Marketplace advertising is becoming more and more interesting as this concept becomes more popular. More and more large online retailers offer this service, which allows you as a smaller reseller to benefit from the findability and brand awareness of the umbrella web shop.

    Although it comes with some drawbacks, offering your product on a marketplace is almost always worth considering.

    There are numerous central marketplaces. Our recommendations include selling through Amazon or Bol.com marketplaces. These are very well known names in the webshop world (Amazon international and Bol national).

    If you want to advertise optimally via a marketplace and distinguish yourself, you will have to get the most out of your presentation on the platform. This can be done with clear product descriptions, competitive prices and catchy images, but also a fast response time when there is, for example, a complaint.

    Although the link with marketplace advertising and sustainability is hard to find, we want to combine our marketplace expertise with supporting sustainable initiatives and startups.

    As a customer, you therefore not only get customised service but also the guarantee that you are actively contributing to a more sustainable and greener Netherlands.
