“Unconditional.” couldn’t describe Badland’s promise to its customers any better. It’s really the cornerstone of how they operate. The brand guarantees the technology, performance and quality of its hunting gear, or customers get a replacement -- no questions asked. With a vast product line that ranges from apparel, to packs, tents and accessories, Badlands came to us for help in driving overall sales among Amazon shoppers.
INSIDE THE SUCCESS OF BADLAND'S AMAZON STOREFRONT
Badlands is a premier player in the outdoor space, but was looking to build sales among “New-To-Brand” consumers on Amazon.
In the first 4 months, Badlands’ Storefront achieved an impressive 7.5% conversion rate driven by 46% of sales from Sponsored Brand ads and 41% of visits from organic discovery.
WHAT IS A STOREFRONT?
A BRANDED MICROSITE ON AMAZON
In essence, a Storefront is a microsite hosted within Amazon's catalog that you can customize to display your brand’s value and product selection while elaborating your brand story.

BRANDED CONTENT FOR RESULTS
When we built the Storefront it was crucial for us to develop a branded experience for new and existing customers — we wanted to make sure Amazon reflected what Badlands was doing in their other sales channels. This would create a seamless journey for anyone experiencing the brand for the first time.
