Here are useful tips and tricks from partners directly

“To discover popular new products and deals, it is always a good idea to take a look at the “Movers & Shakers” sections of the Amazon Best Seller charts, where new trends and popular items are quickly visible and updated hourly.”

Karsten Serck, AREA DVD

“I interact intensively with my social media followers during this special time of year. Promotions such as advent calendars and sweepstakes combined with great deals and offers ensure many clicks and higher interaction among customers. In this way, you sustainably strengthen the channel. And at the same time, you can build a stronger personal connection and pave the way for future sales.”

Torsten Heinze,

“For this year’s peak season, we will again create our own deals hub with individually selected deals. We promote these vigorously via our newsletter and slide-ins on the website.”“As a deal portal, we keep all slots on our website free for Black Friday and Cyber Monday Week.

Thilo Röscheisen, AllesBeste GmbH

The latter in particular, as the past has shown that many deals from Amazon are great here – and unfortunately quickly drown in the flood of promotions by other shops and retailers. That’s why we always double check the Amazon deals, so that we don’t miss anything.”

Have a great holiday season and happy earnings!
