What's up Badger Nation?! This week's episode is a rundown on click through rates (CTR) on Amazon. We haven't talked too extensively about click through rates on the podcast yet, but we really dive into things in this episode and cover everything you need to know about CTRs in Amazon PPC. CTRs can reveal a lot about your business and can help identify potential issues with both your ads and your listings. While there's no official documentation saying so, there's plenty of anecdotal evidence that your CTR actually affects your ad performance as well and may be a driving factor in your ad quality score - which is really important if you want to appear for your highest traffic, most relevant keywords. Don't miss out on this episode; a click through rate rundown. We'll see you in the Badger Den!
In this episode, Mike & Brett discuss a lesser known feature of Amazon advertising - bulk file operations. Bulk files allow you to upload & download large amounts of data into or out of your Amazon account very quickly. Changes that would normally be very time intensive, like bid optimization for example, can be applied much more efficiently when utilizing bulk files, which are essentially just spreadsheets with your advertising data. If you're interested in learning more about how you can make changes more efficiently in your ad account, this episode is for you! We'll see you in the Badger Den.
In this episode, Mike & Brett dive into the latest updates Amazon released last week (May 2019) for sponsored brand ads. These updates include a brand new match type, a redesign of a current match type, and a feature that you would've expected sponsored brands to have before now...  While you do have to be brand registered to access sponsored brand ads (SBAs), they cover a huge amount of real estate in Amazon's SERPs and every brand on Amazon that's serious about growing its revenue and increasing its exposure should be leveraging them to the fullest. Be sure to join along as we dive in, dissect these changes, and discuss the best practices around these newest additions. We'll see you in the Badger Den!
