Amazon owns nearly 38% of the U.S. online retail market, which is probably why ecommerce marketers spent over $44 billion on Amazon advertising in 2023.

And with more spending comes more competition, so it’s no surprise Amazon PPC experts are in high demand.

With the complexity of Amazon’s advertising platform, having an expert manage your campaigns can make the difference between ads that maximize returns on ad spend (ROAS) and money flushed down the drain.

What is an Amazon PPC expert?

An Amazon PPC expert is a PPC consultant (or agency) who has a deep understanding of Amazon’s advertising platform. This could be an individual marketer or an agency that combines several marketers’ specialized knowledge.

To be considered an Amazon PPC expert, you need to possess a comprehensive knowledge of how to navigate Amazon’s unique PPC model, which includes:

  • Brand ads that appear at the top of the Amazon search results page, where various brands offering the product are listed
  • Sponsored product ads that appear in the search results as high-listed promoted product listings
  • Sponsored display ads that appear as Amazon Sponsored Ads but they can also occur as display ads off-Amazon in their publisher network or on Twitch, which Amazon owns

Their expertise will broadly encompass:

  • Leveraging Amazon’s A9 algorithm
  • Analyzing market trends
  • Product listing optimization
  • Keyword research
  • Ad campaign strategy
  • Bidding techniques
  • Performance analysis
  • And more

In some cases, certain experts may have specialized knowledge in a specific area or industry. For example, Amazon PPC specialists who are fashion experts are adept at dynamic PPC advertising strategies that change with the fast pace of fashion trends.

How do Amazon’s PPC ads work? A brief overview

Amazon ads work on a cost-per-click model, just as Google Ads does. When a user types in an advertiser’s search term, their ads are eligible to serve.

Amazon PPC advertising has many parallels to Google Ads advertising.

Amazon Ads ppc expert

Amazon sellers have four ad metrics they track in Seller Central. These are:

  • Impressions: This is the number of times your ads are shown to people searching on Amazon.
  • Clicks: This, of course, is the number of times your ads are clicked on by people using Amazon.
  • Attributed Sales: Anyone who clicks on your ad is tagged for tracking. If they buy your product within one week of that click, that sale is attributed to your ad. If they purchase a product more than a week later, that sale isn’t attributed to your ads.
  • Advertising Cost of Sales (ACoS): This figure is a derived metric that calculates the cost of your ads in terms of sales made as a percentage. For example, if you pay $50 for ads and sell $500 worth of products, 50/500=0.1, or 10%. The cost of the ads ate up 10% of the revenue from your sales.

One more key performance metric (KPI) that’s essential to measure is ROAS, or return on ad spend.

ROAS is calculated as your total value of ad-attributed sales divided by the entire ad spend to determine how much revenue you get per dollar of ad spend.

Unfortunately, Amazon doesn’t show this, so you’ll have to calculate it yourself.

Basically, the better your ads target the right people, the more sales you’ll get for your ad spend, and the better your ROAS.

While Amazon isn’t as complex as Google or Facebook in terms of targeting options, there are still many little details that can make or break ads…or waste a ton of money if they’re misconfigured.

That’s where an agency comes into play. Agencies like ours are experts in running PPC ads on all platforms and can help you avoid those pitfalls you would otherwise be vulnerable to experiencing.

How to optimize Amazon PPC campaigns

Optimizing your campaigns will help you reach your business goals. Much of this campaign optimization is similar to other types of paid search platforms, so if you’re familiar with those, you’ll be at an advantage.

Here are a few areas to address as you look to improve your campaign performance.

Add negative keywords

Negative keywords keep your ads from showing for irrelevant products.

The best way to add negative keywords is to check your Amazon Search Terms Report to find any terms you might like to exclude.

This report includes helpful information, including campaign anime, ad group name, portfolio name, keyword match type, and click rate.

Improve landing pages

For Amazon PPC ads, a landing page can be a video landing page, a text and image-based page about your product, or product pages.

To improve the performance of your landing pages, use keywords in your titles and your copy. Ensure all images are clear and you have a single, compelling call to action (CTA).

HawkSEM’s team lead, Melissa Torre gives us some advice on how to do this.

“We want to ensure that all titles, bullet points, and backend keywords are as complete as possible,” she explains. “Without doing too much keyword stuffing in the title, ensuring that uses are highlighted in addition to product details.”

Torre also tells us that we should ensure there are at least five images on the listing – these images can be lifestyle, product closeup, packaging as applicable, and any infographics you have.

“If you are a registered brand owner, ensure your a+ descriptions are built and the Amazon Landing Page has been created and optimized with creative images and features and benefits,” she says.

This way once it is time to run PPC in Amazon, the ads and keywords will match the terms on the product pages which helps streamline Algorithm learning.

Conduct keyword research

Keyword research will help you choose the right keywords for your campaigns. It’s best to develop a strategy based on your product and your competitor research before starting your keyword research.

There are several ways to do your research.

  • Use the Amazon search bar to get suggestions from Amazon (autocomplete)
  • Choose a tool like SEMrush
  • Find a specialized keyword research tool for Amazon
  • Mine Google Trends

Torre says, “There are plenty of third-party tools you can use such as Helium 10 and Keywords everywhere. But you can also just start searching in the Amazon UI for ideas.”

She says that when a customer is also running Google or Bing PPC we can apply keyword learnings from previous performance.

“Make sure to check for synonyms and look at competitors’ titles and bullet points for ideas,” she says.

Choose the right match types

Match types determine how closely queries match your keywords. Choosing the wrong type might mean wasted spend and the wrong audiences landing on your product.

There are three match types:

  • Broad: Broad match keywords broadly match the intent of the keyword. They display your ads when users use any of the words in their query and in any order. They bring in more traffic and are better for a top-of-funnel approach. According to Amazon, their bids may also cost you more.
  • Phrase: Ads display when a shopper uses these words in the same order as your keywords. The query phrase can have words at the beginning or end of your keywords. For instance, blue running shoes can match “running shoes.” These tend to help in the consideration and conversion stages.
  • Exact: Exactly match keywords require queries to exactly match the keyword or be a close match. For instance, a plural variation would match. These might drive lower traffic, so you may want to pull these from shopping queries that convert for you (Search Terms Report).

Select appropriate audiences

Audiences are important to Amazon’s Sponsored Display Ads. These ads use Amazon shopping signals to find users who are most likely to buy or interact.

The best way to choose audiences is to develop an ideal customer persona and match that persona to the audiences available to you.

For instance, someone who just moved might be looking for dinnerware. This same audience could also be newly married.

Audiences are grouped by these categories:

  • Lifestyle: Here, you’ll find people whose shopping and watching behavior shows an interest in a certain type of lifestyle. This could be shows they’ve consumed or indicated an interest in on Amazon Prime, IMDB, or browsing history on Amazon.
  • In-market: In-market audiences are shoppers who are looking to buy specific products as gauged by their behavior.
  • Life events: These are the life events people experience, like moving, getting married, graduating, etc.
  • Interests: These are activity-based. Interests come from recent activity on Amazon.

A/b test and experiment

A/B testing is an essential way to learn and scale. Amazon presents a dilemma, though. There’s no easy way to conduct A/B testing as you would in platforms like Google.

Torre tells us, “We do not have an easy experiment setup program like in Google Ads, but I like to run a placement test for top of page in a campaign to try for better low funnel performance.”

Because there’s no good way to A/B test, Torre suggests taking the data accrued from auto campaigns and setting the new campaign on loose match to test for new placements and search terms for a higher funnel test.

Using loose match while running other campaigns on a much more strict match will let you test your target audience. You can also test your ad copy in these campaigns. Since Amazon doesn’t have a specific tool, you’ll need to be creative when testing.

The takeaway

Amazon PPC experts screen

Amazon, like other PPC platforms, requires regular maintenance and a hands-on approach to be as successful as possible. Not only that, but there are millions of products sold on the Amazon marketplace, and it’s a rapidly changing platform with its own algorithm and competitors that rise and fall every second.

If your Amazon business needs help with PPC strategy or ads management, any of these Amazon PPC agency options will do nicely.
