The Best Structure for Amazon PPC Campaigns

23/04/2023

If you’re an Amazon seller, you’re probably already familiar with Amazon PPC campaigns. Pay-per-click advertising is an effective way to increase sales, drive traffic, and boost brand visibility on the Amazon platform. But, how can you structure your campaigns in the best possible way to make the most of your PPC budget?

 

Understanding Amazon PPC

 

Before we dive into campaign structure, let’s first make sure we understand what Amazon PPC is. Essentially, you bid on specific keywords that are relevant to your product. When a shopper searches for those keywords on Amazon, they will see your product listing at the top of the search results. You only pay when a shopper clicks on your ad, hence the name pay-per-click.

 

The Best Campaign Structure

 

Now that we understand the basics of Amazon PPC, let’s talk about how to structure your campaigns. The key to a successful campaign structure is organization. By organizing your campaigns in a way that makes sense, you can easily track performance and adjust your strategy accordingly.

 

Campaign Level

 

At the highest level, you should have separate campaigns for each product or product line. This allows you to allocate budget appropriately and adjust bids based on performance.

 

Ad Group Level

 

Within each campaign, you should have separate ad groups for each keyword theme. For example, if you sell pet products, you could have separate ad groups for “dog food,” “cat toys,” and “bird cages.” This allows you to create targeted ad copy and adjust bids based on performance for each keyword theme.

 

Keyword Level

 

Finally, at the lowest level, you should have separate keywords within each ad group. By separating keywords, you can create highly targeted ad copy and adjust bids based on performance at the keyword level.

 

Why This Structure Works

 

By organizing your campaigns in this way, you can easily see which products, themes, and individual keywords are performing well and adjust your strategy accordingly. You can allocate budget to the campaigns that are driving the most sales, while pausing or reducing spend on campaigns that aren’t performing as well.

In addition, this structure allows you to easily digest the search term data from your campaigns. By looking at the search terms that are triggering your ads, you can identify new keyword opportunities, negative keywords to add, and adjust bids based on performance.

 

Conclusion

 

In conclusion, organizing your Amazon PPC campaigns in a way that makes sense is crucial to success. By structuring your campaigns by product, keyword theme, and individual keywords, you can easily track performance and adjust your strategy accordingly. This structure also allows you to easily digest search term data and identify new opportunities for growth.
