Amazon’s ad business is blowing up in 2018. While Google and Facebook can only infer your buying intentions, Amazon’s wealth of first-hand consumer purchasing data is enabling savvy marketers to greatly improve their ad targeting across the entire customer purchase funnel.
The ability for sellers and vendors to extend the reach of their SP ads to off-Amazon sites is a very interesting addition to Sponsored Products. How the new retargeting opportunities will affect PPC sales overall however, is difficult to assess at the moment.
When it comes to PPC optimization, many sellers focus on optimizing for a lower ACoS for their campaign, following the assumption that less money spent on advertising= more overall profit. However, optimizing for a low ACoS is not always the best tactic for your campaign, if your goal is to maximize the total profit for your product.
Currently it’s difficult for vendors and sellers to track their total aggregated ad spend on Amazon, and if you have a set budget allocated for paid marketing on Amazon, it’s important to be able to track how much you’re already spending on Amazon’s various ad formats.
If you can automate your keyword bids, it will help you to achieve a higher return on ad spend (ROAS), and save you many hours of manual PPC management work each week.
