So we surveyed 4,898 predominantly millennial female consumers and 2,472 Amazon Prime members on Dabbl to better understand Prime and Non-Prime Amazon shoppers and their relationships with Amazon.

What did we find out?

Let’s take a look.

How Amazon Shoppers Shop

Amazon dominates retail. 95% of 4,898 consumers surveyed shop at Amazon.

Most, at 47%, shop at Amazon multiple times a month.

How are they planning on spending that budget? Only 15% of Prime members know exactly what they are going to buy on Prime Day. 71% plan to make their decision after browsing the available deals.

How to Drive More Customers to Your Amazon Store

For brands looking to tap into those budgets and increase their Amazon sales, it pays to build relationships with Amazon shoppers.

Paid channels such as Amazon Ads can drive traffic to your Amazon pages as people are browsing and searching on Amazon. Often, advertising on this channel is highly competitive. There can be a lot of noise in this channel. Time spent engaging with consumers is minimal.

Dabbl is a platform where an audience of mostly millennial female Amazon shoppers actively engage with brands during their downtime. Rather than brands running ads that interrupt users’ social media or other content, these Amazon shoppers use Dabbl specifically to interact with brands.

They watch videos, offer opinions, take part in branded trivia and puzzles and more.

One new brand saw a 200% increase in Amazon sales after running just one Dabbl experience.

The brand also saw a 28% increase for three weeks after the Dabbl experience had ended.

You can quickly launch a brand experience to drive traffic to your Amazon store.

Best of luck!
