First, you should evaluate and update your product title and description keywords. Keywords determine which searches your listing could show in, so ensure the keywords are relevant to your product and value proposition. 
    2. Use Amazon’s product categories and enhanced brand content if you’re a brand registered on Amazon. This can create a more engaging product page and increase visibility in searches. Make sure that you have high quality images, showing the product from various angles. If you sell clothing, include photos with different-sized models to help buyers see how the clothes will fit their bodies. 
  2. Use Amazon’s advertising tools
