There are two main problems that plague all ecommerce merchants: lack of traffic, and lack of conversions. If you’ve been having trouble with either — or even just want to improve both — then SellerExpress has five awesome tips you need to be following now. First off, let’s make sure everyone knows the difference between traffic and conversion. We know it’s probably a trifling point for most of you, but just in case: Traffic: Generally speaking, the number of hits you get on your page. You can further qualify it as unique hits, and also define how long someone has to spend on your page to be a unique hit. Conversion: In the most general of terms, conversion is the ratio/percentage of number of people who visit your store and the number who make a purchase. So with that being said, let’s look at how you can improve things overall for the betterment of the two.

It all began with needing to make space and a little extra money. My lease was running out and soon after that insurance would be due on my car - my first, a cute little hatchback perfect for city drives, but insurance is steep regardless when you are a new driver. Moving was more urgent. Anyone who has ever moved knows how much work it takes to sort and pack and ship and unpack everything, and how it’s also a good time to declutter sort out all that stuff that has accumulated over the years living in one place. For me, moving meant I had to finally part with a few of my books. I’ve loved books ever since I was [...]

Guest blog by Amazon Sellers Lawyer  A trademark is a symbol, phrase, or some other device that distinguishes ownership of a product or service.  For example, the way that McDonald’s writes the “M” and the Nike swoosh are both trademarks.  When you see either, you know what to expect. United States federal law governs trademarks.  Trademarks are described in section 32(1) of the Lanham Act a set of federal laws. A trademark is intended to stand as a mark of quality.  They can be viewed at the government’s website for the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office). People that buy products from Amazon third-party sellers' often rely on trademarks when making purchases.  When they see a trademark, buyers know they are getting quality goods even though the seller is not an authorized reseller. Trademark infringement occurs when someone takes a trademark, like the Nike swoosh, and puts it on a non-Nike shirt. If you take someone’s mark and put it on your product, that is clearly trademark infringement. What is NOT trademark violation in the United States is also clear: if you buy and [...]
