Increased Sponsored Products Ad Revenue
CPC Strategy addressed each of Designer Living’s goals by leveraging our in-house Amazon optimization strategies and techniques:
Goal 1: Improve Scalability & Optimize Catalog Management
The biggest challenge facing Designer Living was that they couldn’t advertise their entire catalog in bulk and were manually optimizing more than 10,000 different SKUs. Shortly after they joined CPC Strategy, we implemented the use of Sponsored Products Bulk Operations, which allowed Designer Living to have all of their products live in campaigns while also giving them the ability to apply product-level bids throughout the entire catalog.
Because Designer Living is a reseller, it was critical that they implemented Sponsored Products advertising efforts to capitalize on Buy Box traffic.
Pro-Tip: Sponsored Product Ads will only surface when sellers are the current Buy Box winner.
Goal 2: Increase Sales Revenue
We also created Automatic Campaigns and segmented their catalog by brand name. Products were shifted into different ad groups (example: high or low bids) based on their cost of sale (COS) goal.
Any products converting below their COS goal were moved into an ad group with a higher bid and any products that weren’t converting at their COS goal were moved to a lower bid. Ultimately, we were able to optimized management for all 73 brands using Bulk Operations.
After a couple months, we discovered there were about 5 or 6 brands that drove most of the sales for Designer Living. We harvesting keywords and built out detailed manual campaigns based on keyword product data for each of those brands, which led to an increase in Sponsored Products ad revenue by 615.73%.
