How to create a PPC campaign on Amazon Ads

Want to create a PPC (pay-per-click) advertising campaign on Amazon Ads, but don’t know where to begin? Don’t worry, we are here to help.

To start, it’s important to understand how Amazon PPC works. When you create a PPC campaign on Amazon, you are paying for every click you get on your ad. This means that you only pay when someone clicks on your ad and visits your product detail page. The goal is to get your ad to appear on Amazon’s search results page when someone searches for keywords related to your product.

To create a PPC campaign on Amazon, you will need to have an Amazon seller account and have registered at least one product. You can then follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your merchant account and select “Advertising” from the menu.
  2. Click on “Create a campaign” and choose “Sponsored Ads”.
  3. Select the product for which you want to create the PPC campaign and choose a name for the campaign.
  4. Define your daily budget and the duration of the campaign.
  5. Select the keywords for which you want your ad to appear and set the price you are willing to pay per click.
  6. Create your ad and choose where you want it to appear (for example, on the Amazon search results page or on other pages of the Amazon display network).
  7. Review and confirm your campaign.

Once you have launched your PPC campaign, it is important to optimize it for the best possible performance. Some useful tips for optimizing your Amazon PPC campaigns include:

  • Use relevant and specific keywords.
  • Use audience-targeting options to show your ad to the people who are most likely to buy your product.
  • Use compelling images and titles to grab the buyer’s attention.
  • Adjust your budget and keyword bids based on campaign performance.
  • Use Amazon’s automated campaigns to save time and effort.

How Amazon PPC works

Amazon PPC is an advertising model in which you only pay for each click your ad receives. That is to say, you don’t have to pay to display your ad, but you only pay when someone decides to interact with it.

To create a PPC campaign on Amazon, you need to access your Amazon seller account and go to the Amazon Advertising page. There, you will be able to select the product or products you want to promote and set your daily budget and the duration of the campaign. You will also be able to choose the keywords or phrases you want to use so that your ad appears when someone performs a search related to them, and create your ad with an attractive image and text that highlights the advantages of your product.

Once your campaign is created, Amazon will display your ad to users who have performed searches related to your keywords or who are in the target audience you have selected. If someone clicks on your ad, they will be redirected to your product detail page on Amazon and you will be charged the cost per click that you have set.

It is important to optimize your PPC campaign to ensure the best possible performance. Some ways to achieve this are to use Amazon’s “Automated Campaigns”, create different ad groups to segment your keywords and make your ad more relevant to the target audience, and to use Amazon’s performance metrics to analyze your campaign performance and make adjustments accordingly.

Amazon Automated Campaigns

Amazon’s “Automated Campaigns” is a tool that allows you to create ad campaigns automatically and optimize your ads effectively. When you use this option, Amazon takes care of analyzing your products and your advertising objectives to suggest keywords and target audience segments that may be relevant to your campaign.

To use Amazon’s “Automated Campaigns”, you first need to log in to your Amazon seller account and go to the Amazon Advertising page. There, you will be able to select the product(s) you want to promote and set your daily budget and campaign duration. Next, select the “Automated Campaigns” option in the campaign creation menu and follow the instructions to complete the process of creating your campaign.

Once you have created your automated campaign, Amazon will automatically optimize your ads to maximize the performance of your campaign. However, it is important that you regularly review the performance of your campaign and make adjustments accordingly. For example, you can add or remove keywords or target audience segments as needed.

In summary, Amazon’s “Automated Campaigns” is a very useful tool to save time and effort in creating and optimizing Amazon ad campaigns, although it is important that you review and adjust them on a regular basis to ensure the best possible performance.
