Is Amazon Advertising right for me?
Amazon Advertising is the right thing for you if you are an Amazon Seller or Vendor who:
- want to increase your market share and sales
- want to increase your profitability
- launch a product
- want to achieve brand awareness
Whenever we search for a product on Amazon, we most likely have the intention to buy it. The fact that we already enter the process with this purchase intention is a great advantage for any e-commerce company: Anyone who actively searches for a product is already in the customer journey and will soon be at the final destination. The awareness phase is behind us in every sales funnel and we are much closer to the purchase than we would be with any typical Google search query. Rather than having to invest our advertising budgets in the early stages of the customer journey, Amazon is in the unique position to reach potential customers exactly when they are ready to buy.
👉With Amazon Advertising you can target and reach your potential customers in every phase of the customer journey.
So, if you haven't started with Amazon Advertising in e-commerce, what are you waiting for? It's about time to add your products!
