Have you been trying to figure out how to use A+ content on Amazon to show off what makes your product special? 

Do you have amazing recipes and/or important prep requirements? 

Amazon is not in the habit of making things easy and can often leave you feeling lost & confused. 

But there are tools available. 

Enhanced Brand Content(now A+ content for Brand Registered Sellers) is easy once you know what you’re looking at, and if you’re trying to sell food on Amazon then below are some key ways you can use A+ content to boost sales. 

What is A+ Content on Amazon 

A+ Content on Amazon is a type of enhanced brand content (hence, the previous name) that allows you to leverage more real estate on your product page to communicate with the customer. 

Its purpose is to provide you additional creative space to increase conversion and grow your sales. All while building brand awareness. 

[QUOTE]: “Its purpose is to provide you additional creative space to increase conversion and grow your sales…” 

Its previous name was Enhanced Brand Content (EBC) and the two terms are used interchangeably. 

It’s one of the most effective tools brand- registered sellers have for showing professionalism and establishing trust with the customer. 

How is Enhanced Brand Content Built on Amazon? 

Building A+ content in Amazon is a bit easier than it used to be but still requires some know-how, a skilled designer and a good design system. 

You can find the editor in the A+ content manager under the advertising tab of seller central.

And that’s pretty much it!  

Well… not exactly. There’s a lot that goes into the determining which blocks you’ll use such as the story you want to tell, the type of product you have and your branding. 

Below we’ll go into some great ways food companies have been using A+ content in Amazon listings to grow their sales and brand awareness. 

Example 1: Creating Context for the Customer with a Recipe 

In our first amazon a+ content example, Pacific Foods has done an excellent job of using a module to provide a recipe. Their plant-based oat beverage looks to be something like oat milk with a focus on using it as a baking ingredient which makes a recipe a great option to provide context. 

They used the perfect module for communicating the instructions and the ingredients separately while providing a delicious image of the finished product as well as an attractive image above the ingredients.  

This type of image allows us to communicate a specific use of the product so they can better understand how the product is used. Not only do they get the emotional connection with Rosemary biscuits but the customer likely has an idea of what else they can use it for as well now if they are an experienced baker. 

Example 2: Connecting Emotionally with Additional Benefits 

Nutiva has a great design team. They’ve clearly thought out their brand design and how they want to communicate their benefits and you can tell by their design that mobile is a clear focus for them. 

A+ Content on Amazon gives you the ability to connect your bullets to your images in a way the normal graphics don’t allow. 

In these two images they have combined excellent copywriting with beautiful design, all wrapped up in their product’s brand colors to provide a consistent experience that speaks to their target audience. 

Example 3: Make it Feel Easy by Showing How to Use the Product 

Add, Blend, Stir. 

It’s that easy. 

Have you ever chosen not to buy something because you weren’t sure how to use it? 

I know I have. 

Kiva has done an impressive job here of eliminating any anxiety a potential buyer may feel from not knowing how to use the product. 

Their communication is simple and straightforward and utilizes great imagery to make it easily scannable. Now it’s easy for someone to look at that and say “Oh, that’s it? I can do that.”  

And they buy. 

Example 4: Let the Customer Envision Life with the Product 

Images are worth a thousand words, and they sell. 

Better Body Foods has not only created a great layout that will transition easily to mobile but they’ve included a section that answers the question “what can I use Chia Seeds for?” 

Not only that but they’ve got all cold beverages (smoothies and puddings) which are great for the summer time (when I’ve pulled this image). 

They look refreshing and now I know all the things I can put my soon-to-be-purchased chia seeds in to be super healthy and fit this summer 😊 

Example 5: Align with Your Customer by Communicating Your Brands Values 

Orgain makes it clear from the top. 

They care about sustainability. 

They care so much they’ve placed it above their logo which tells me that they know it’s a key value of their customers. 

By putting it in front, using specific language that resonates with their customers and proving it out with numbers they are showing their customers that their values are aligned. 

People who are environmentally responsible buy Orgain’s Organic Protein. 

BONUS Example: Maintain a Consistent Design & Brand Experience When Using A+ Content on Amazon

Not only does Equal Exchange do a great job aligning with their customer values but they create a consistent brand experience with every image. 

Each image is designed with the same type of full width module that they’ve inserted a custom image into, and they’ve done an excellent job transitioning through with their brand colors (see the blue and red) to make it all feel whole. 

Not only does it look beautiful, but they are speaking directly to their customers. They are showing you that one of the main benefits when you buy Equal Exchange is that it makes you feel good knowing they source responsibly.

Now that’s beautiful.
