Fake and paid reviews:

Leave this idea at the moment because Amazon will somehow know it and will penalize you. This punishment will cost you all of your invested money. So think twice before doing anything unauthorized.

Poor photography:

Product descriptions along with the graphics are something that captures the customer. In case your illustrations are as dry as the dust you are not going to have a single customer. Colorful pictures and photographs will equip your product and captivate more customers.
