The best ways to lower your Amazon CPC


The best ways to lower your Amazon CPC

Every Amazon seller knows how important advertising cost of sale (ACoS) is. This measure shows how well your money on ads turns into sales. Cost-per-click (CPC) is the amount you pay every time someone clicks on your ad. It has a big effect on your ACoS. As you might expect, dropping your CPC will lead to a better ACoS and a more profitable ad campaign.

Here, we look at some good ways to get lower CPCs on Amazon:

Keyword Enchantment: How to Target and Improve

  • Relevance is Key: Do lots of keyword research to find keywords that are very important to your goods and the people you want to reach. Third-party services and tools, like the term study tool in Amazon Seller Central, can be very helpful. Focusing on relevant keywords will get you qualified clicks, raise your conversion rate, and lower your CPC.

  • Negative terms: Don't forget how powerful negative terms can be. These are keywords that you don't want to target. Check out the search terms that bring up your ads and eliminate the ones that don't belong. Adding these as bad keywords keeps your ad budget from going to clicks that aren't likely to lead to a conversion.

  • Campaign Structure for Efficiency: Set up your campaigns by putting ads into groups with similar themes. This lets you make ad copy and more relevant bids to certain search groups while dropping CPC.

Strategies for Bidding: Finding the Best Price

  • Don't Chase the Top Spot: You might want to get to the top of the list, but remember that the costs per click (CPCs) are usually the biggest. Try automated buying methods such as "Downstream Bids Towards Target Return on Ad Spend (ROAS)" from Amazon Advertising. This approach prioritizes effectiveness, keeps your CPC low, and aims for your desired ROAS.

  • Manual Bidding with Precision: You might want to try manual bidding if you know much about your product profits and goal ACoS. You can set the highest CPC you're willing to pay for each term this way, but it needs to be watched and adjusted constantly.

How to Improve Your Product Listing: A Chain Reaction

  • A Picture is Worth a Thousand Clicks: It's said that a picture is worth a thousand clicks. You need high-quality pictures of your products to get people to click on them. Spend money on professional product photography, showing your item from different views and highlighting its best features.

  • Compelling Content is King, meaning you should write product names and descriptions that are interesting, useful, and full of keywords. Use useful search terms in your post without using too many keywords. A well-optimized post raises your native ranking and lowers your reliance on paid ads, which lowers your CPC.

  • Positive Reviews Breed Trust: Give great customer service and a high-quality product to get customer reviews. Good reviews help people believe in your business and make buying decisions, which increases the number of people who buy from you after clicking on your ads and lowers your CPC.

Advanced Techniques: Going Beyond the Basics

  • Categories of Matches: Controlling Traffic: Try out different types of keyword matches, such as broad, phrase, and exact match. The broad match gets more people to see your ad, but it might get clicks that aren't related. You have more power over phrases and exact matches, which usually have cheaper CPCs.

  • A/B Testing for Winning Ads: Don't Just Choose One Ad Copy. Perform A/B tests with various headlines and details to find the most effective one for your intended group. The best ad will likely get more hits at a cheaper cost per click (CPC).

Don't forget that lowering CPC is an ongoing process. Check your campaign's progress often, look at the data, and make changes as needed. You could use sponsored product ads, sponsored brand ads, and product display ads from Amazon to change your strategy and reach more people at a lower cost per click.

By using these tactics, you can lower your CPC by a large amount and make your Amazon advertising more profitable. Don't forget that a lower CPC doesn't just mean spending less; it means getting the most out of every dollar you spend on ads for your goods.
