When an online marketplace has more than 2,500,000 sellers, advertising is essential for beating the competition and being seen by shoppers. However, if after running your first Amazon advertising campaign, you’re looking for a more data-driven way to target customers and win advertising placement, then these Amazon ad tools can help.
What Are Amazon Ad Tools?
An Amazon ad tool helps you to manage your PPC (pay per click) Amazon advertising campaign to generate the largest return on investment.
Traditional advertising tools provide help with keyword research, bid automation, and ad scheduling. These tools use seller insights to identify profitable keywords and navigate Amazon’s dynamic bidding rules to help you win placements. However, a new wave of advertising tools is entering the scene.
The Amazon ad tools you're about to discover combine data science, machine learning, and human expertise, to create and run highly competitive advertising strategies that win bids, increase sales, and generate profits.
