What is Amazon PPC

Before the discussion about why Amazon PPC is the best advertisement tool on Amazon, we must understand what Amazon PPC really meant?

Amazon PPC (Pay per click) is an advertising model that works on the basis of the bid made by different Amazon sellers. A seller has to put a target bid price when they start a campaign and then Amazon’s search engine with the help of this bid price places sellers’ product on the page. If you put in a higher bid than others then, sometime, you will appear first on the search engine result page (SERP). In this model, advertisers pay a fee to Amazon each time when the potential buyer will click on their advertisement.

Remember, Amazon uses individual keywords not, keyphrases to place a product on SERP. 

Amazon PPC model has three formats:

  • Amazon Sponsored Products - This is the advertisement for individual product listings on Amazon. When a customer searches for any product on Amazon and, if your product’s keyword is relevant to that search, then it will appear in the search result. It allows the seller to start their product campaign in a few minutes even if they had never advertised before. Sponsored products always work effectively with relevance to conversion rate but, it will give anticipated results only if you have used accurate keywords for your product. 

  • Amazon Sponsored brands --  Before utilizing this format, a seller must-have an Amazon brand registry to avoid Intellectual property issues. Amazon Sponsored brand features sellers’ brand logo, headline and multiple products. When shoppers click on a brand logo, Amazon takes them to that respective brand. It is a crucial feature of Amazon to spread brand awareness and make it recognize. Similarly, to Amazon sponsored products; this format also works effectively only when an accurate keyword is used

  • Amazon Product Display Ads – This works little differently from both Amazon sponsored products and brands, unlike those two features, Amazon PDA targets shoppers’ interest and complementary products. Although Amazon PDA is only for Amazon Vendor Central, it allows them to advertise an individual product to a wide audience. It usually appears below the “Add to Cart” option on Amazon product detail page and can also appear at the bottom or right of search results.
