📦 The Order : Weekly Roundup - GenAI Listings & Supply Chain by Amazon
Here’s a quick roundup of last week’s news :
Deep Dive 1: GenAI for Listings - Combining Amazon’s & Autopilot’s AI
Listing optimization is a key area for GenAI to unfold. This week’s announcement by Amazon to solve the cold start problem establishes a unique workflow that ties in with Autopilot’s full optimization approach.
What Amazon focuses on: Amazon lets users create a listing for new products based on a quick prompt with easier capabilities to import content from other platforms for the initial creation to follow.
How you can leverage GenAI on existing listing: That’s where Autopilot comes in. You can enroll your listings into fully managed & automated updates. Whether its your existing listings or Amazon’s newly generated listings, Autopilot will ensure SEO-optimization and continuous updates to reflect latest keywords & search volume trends. Once Autopilot is engaged, no more manual updating and reviewing required 😍
Another update from Accelerate: Amazon showed with its Experiments that listing optimization can lift sales by 25% 🤯 - that’s organic uplift.
Deep Dive 2: Supply chain by Amazon
Amazon expands its warehousing offering from FBA to omnichannel - looking to be the infrastructure provider also for those not selling primarily on Amazon: From importing goods from factories and suppliers, warehousing for sales through physical stores, various sales channels & Amazon, to fulfillment via Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA) and Multi-channel fulfillment (MCF).
