There has never been a better time to sell on Amazon. From 2019 to 2020, Amazon’s ad platform has grown by 41%. Pretty impressive for a platform that has only been around since 2008. Along with a boost in Amazon ad spend, sellers have also seen an increase in revenue. Based on our internal data, sellers saw their revenue steadily increase during the first half of 2020. With such great metrics, Amazon offers a fantastic opportunity for proactive third party sellers. Luckily for you, we’re going to walk you through the basics of Amazon PPC and how to get started on the best advertising platform for seeing a return on your ad spend.
If you have experience in PPC, you know that keywords are one of the main things to target when creating ads in Seller Central or AMS. Some of them will bring you lots of sales and some of them will end up spending money without a single sale. So when is the right time to give up on keywords and when you should still reconsider them?
Amazon PPC campaigns are like a car: they get the job done if you perform regularly scheduled maintenance. You can’t just set it and forget it when it comes to PPC. Every once in a while you have to pop the trunk open and make some adjustments.
For Amazon private label sellers looking to bring in new sales, external traffic - reaching out to customers on channels outside of Amazon - can be a winning strategy. While there are countless channels you can advertise your products on, Facebook and Google are without a doubt the heavyweights. Paid ads on both these channels are used by brands big and small, and are proven to work when done right.
Looking into hiring freelancers for private label product and store management? You’ve come to the right place! Hiring freelancers is one of the best moves you can make for your business. There’s a lot of factors involved in choosing the right freelancer for your business, though.
So, let’s be honest: everybody fails. It’s okay. Happens to everyone. Becoming one of the best selling products on Amazon is tough. What do you do when you fail, though? Do you just keep on keeping on, or do you take a good, hard look at what went wrong and adapt your sales strategy? That’s what separates the serious sellers from everyone else. We choose to look at failure as an opportunity to grow, and because of this, we happen to have a lot of valuable insight to share with you.
Sometimes, the Amazon FBA marketplace is the Wild West. Rankings fluctuate by the hour, buy boxes get hijacked, and Amazon’s listing algorithms can change your listing without notice based on a set of complex rules. It’s a lot of stuff to keep track of. Don’t worry, though, because there’s a new sheriff in town!
