The 3 different types of keyword matches in Amazon PPC and how to use them.

The main changes to Amazon Pay Per Click that have come down the pike are the addition of some options for choosing the type of PPC campaign you want to run. Using these tools makes it much more likely you’ll get your target buyers to see and click on your ads. The types are “broad”, “phrase” and “exact”, with the option of adding negative keywords (things you don’t want to rank for) as well. Using these and a little bit of patience you can figure out exactly which of your keywords are working and increase your PPC on those, which ones are not working (and remove them from your PPC altogether), and increase the likelihood of your Amazon private label sales. This episode walks you through how to do that, step by step.

Once my product is up and running and making decent sales, can I turn of PPC?

Today’s guest, Chris Schaeffer is a PPC and marketing expert and he says that you should never turn off your Amazon PPC campaigns, and here’s his reason why: What’s the worst that could happen?

You always want to make sure that your products are being seen OVER your competition, that way you will have the ability to dominate the market when they don’t. Find out how Chris suggests you set up your entire PPC campaign by listening to this episode.
