1. The first type of ppc campaign he narrates is a broad match campaign.
Summary: With this kind of campaign, anytime a customer types in a related search term, your ad can come up.
Purpose: This specific campaign is great for determining converting keywords.
2. The second type of ppc campaign Kevin explains is a phase match campaign.
Summary: In this narrower campaign type, anytime a shopper includes your search term in their searched phrase, your ad can be displayed.
Purpose: This kind of promotion is used to refine and sift the number of keywords in your campaigns, decreasing your ad spend, while maintaining or even increasing your conversion rate.
3. The third type of campaign Kevin D describes is an exact match campaign.
Summary: Being the narrowest campaign, it is only when an Amazon.com explorer matches your ppc key phrases to-the-letter will your ad be shown.
Purpose: This is the sort of campaign you run when you know exactly what keywords are converting for your product.
Part 2: Video 02 - Discovering Keywords that Convert for Your Product
The first couple phases are the longest as they are the most foundational and require the greatest amount of keyword sorting as you are delineating the perimeter of your keyphrases and words.
Selecting the automatic circle means that Amazon will use its marketing tools and pick a selection of keywords to automatically insert into your ppc campaign.
Phase 1: Therefore, Kevin recommends that you begin your keyword selection by running an automatic targeting campaign for a short period of time with a limited budget to take advantage of Amazon's extensive advertising data that it has collected over the years.
That's Kevin's first phase.
Phase 2: The second phase is began by creating a manual ad campaign.
This is when Kevin pulls on tools that he has introduced in early modules that offer keyword research estimates. Kevin is avid that the data provided by the tools are estimates, predictions constructed by algorithms based on past results. He declares often throughout that the only reliable method to track sales is the ITRACK 999 method that he taught in Mod. 1.
Once you have created and refined a list of keywords using the variety of internet-based tools on Kevin's recommended-use list and ran your first broad match campaign, it is time to begin the third phase.
Phase 3: Beginning with campaign structuring, then Kevin teaches the basics of determining the average cost of sales (ACoS) as well as does a walkthrough of setting up individual ad groups for each keyword set. By the end of this phase, Kevin will have shown you how to structure your first phrase match campaign.
Phase 4: The fourth phase continues the campaign optimization process by focusing on the key terms that have led to conversions.
Quickly elaborating on seed words and how to expand your keyword research by planting the rest of your campaigns on those words that have produced sales.
Phase 5: In this phase, Kevin delivers further campaign optimization tips like adding words to your negative keyword list that are similar to your target keywords, but have really only been money-drainers to your ppc budget.
Part 2 of this video:
Diving into more keyword research, Kevin goes through 3 of his favorite keyword research tools, 2 of which are free to use; one does cost about 11 dollars a month, but it does give you reverse ASIN search, so you can backtrack winning products.
Kevin starts his research with looking at where he wants his product to be: the number 1 organic position. He inputs that product into a keyword research tool, and then drops some quick ppc wisdom bombs:
1. Don't put more than 100 keywords into Amazon PPC, or Amazon probably won't give you many impressions
2. Regarding other brands and PPC: While you aren't allowed to use other brand names in your backend keywords, you are allowed to put brands into your ppc key phrase lists.
Summary: In this video, Kevin shows how to sift the keywords that will make up your first phrase match manual campaign and walks through how to set up that campaign in seller central, from how you name your campaigns
Conclusion: Kevin is a ppc fanatic, really into testing metrics and optimizing listing, testing new sets of keywords (created by seed words).
