Modules of Amazon Brand Story
The modules in the Amazon Brand Story section can be divided into two types: visual and textual.
When working on the Amazon Brand Story page the first thing to fulfill are visuals, which include the most striking Brand Carousel Background Module. It is mandatory to complete and includes a field that allows you to add a background image, headline and body text. Experts recommend that you don't go too crazy with the graphics - a clean background image will simplify the aesthetic and blend in perfectly with the other photos you add in the other sections. You can also opt for a background in the brand colors - the only thing that should really be strongly discouraged in this brand's story section is uploading product images here.
Please note that when completing this particular module, you must adhere to the pre-defined guidelines regarding text and background image:
the background image should be 1464 x 625 pixels;
the headline must be limited to 30 characters;
the body text must not be longer than 135 characters.
Another section you need to develop is the Brand ASIN & Store Showcase module.
This is extremely important in terms of sales - when a shopper clicks on it, they will be redirected to product sub-pages or the Amazon seller storefront. This is a great opportunity for cross- and u-selling, so it is worth enriching it with relevant eye-catching call to actions (such as "find out more about our collection").
Importantly, this part of the Brand Story feature module is also subject to certain specifications - in this case an image size of 166 x 182 pixels and a headline text character limit of 30 characters.
Once these modules have been completed, it is time to improve the visual issues - in the Brand Focus Image module section. Here, you can add graphics related, for example, to your product lines (measuring 362 x 453 pixels) and add an appropriate message to them (the headline has a limit of 30 letters).
Next in line is the Brand Logo & Description module. As the name suggests, this is the place to add the most important things, i.e. the logo (315 x 145 pixels) and the brand description. As this is the place where you can expand the content a bit more (450 characters are available), it is worth writing a bit about the company's vision, mission, history or values.
Finally, we are coming to the end of the profile - at this point you only have to complete the Brand Q&A module, which can be expanded by up to 750 characters. You can complete it from scratch or use the pre-set questions or add custom questions most frequently asked by buyers.
And basically, that's it from a concrete point of view - all you have to do now is put in some time and effort to fill in all the boxes discussed. Let us believe that after reading this article, you will have a bright future full of beautiful and eye-catching Amazon Brand Stories sites!
