Welcome to the battle of the decade, the most anticipated battle in the history of Amazon PPC. Here we separate the badgers from the wannabes. Today we will audit a real campaign so thoroughly that every listener and viewer will feel it in their very soul. Critiquing campaign structure, analyzing account performance, identifying the biggest opportunities for missed sales, and, of course, finding all the wasted spend-- we will not leave any stone unturned. We will not leave any meat on the bone because we are badgers, and we are the world’s most fearless animal (according to the 2002 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records). We are Ad Badger, the world’s most fearless Amazon PPC software start-up, and we believe that together, with you, we will fight! Not from tyranny,  oppression, persecution, or even annihilation.  We will fight for our right to success, to healthy Amazon campaigns. Who’s with us?

This is an RPSB refresher. RPSB is an elegant, low cost Amazon PPC keyword research strategy. It’s an acronym for Research, Peel, Stick, and Block, which are the four steps of this strategy.
