Amazon Advertising for Performance Marketers

Friday, February 21, 2020

SEO, PPC & Digital Marketing Workshops @SMXDon’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to learn from the pros!

It doesn’t seem that long ago that Amazon Advertising was a beta that digital marketers were contemplating testing and trying out. Fast forward just five years and it’s now projected to be a $3 billion dollar business for Amazon in 2019. For those of us, though, that grabbed ahold of the opportunity and are already running sponsored product campaigns and have been some time, you’re now asking “now what?”

Learn from Elizabeth Marsten, Senior Director of Strategic Marketplace Services at Tinuiti, and Nancy-lee McLaughlin, Director, Marketplace Search at Tinuiti, who started working on the platform in 2014 at the beginning of the offering and now manage over $400 million dollars on average per year in ad spend.

This workshop will assume that attendees have some working knowledge of the platform and its operations. There will be some introductory level setting material, but the bulk of the sponsored products material will be intermediate to advanced. We will do an introductory level instruction on Amazon’s DSP offering and the Attribution beta–as that is considered what’s next!

This workshop will cover:

  • What is happening in the industry and platform today and what that means for you. We’ll also look at what we’re seeing every day as a leader in the field and how we’re keeping up.
  • Best practice campaign management for sponsored products including campaign structure, type, keyword management, budgeting and bidding for performance.
  • Matching up content on Amazon with advertising for success and brand building within their unique universe with betas like Posts and Manage Your Experiments for A+ content.
  • Sponsored Brands and Display — when to use, what to expect and how to execute successful campaigns.
  • Amazon’s DSP — the programmatic offering that uses Amazon’s owned and operated networks, as well as 3rd party exchanges to create powerful and profitable reach on and off Amazon.
  • We’ll review what’s next in the industry, including the new Amazon Attribution beta –how it works, how to set it up and what you can do with it to show a true closed loop performance of digital marketing efforts across search marketing, email and social channels.
  • And last but not least, expansion with other platforms and channels and how your business can be prepared to take on 2020 and beyond.

At the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to:

  • Determine what the best campaign setup and optimization frequency is for your business
  • Create a personal bidding and budgeting forecasting analysis
  • Design an ad type plan of attack that includes conquest, defense and testing new formats
  • Direct creative efforts to fit your advertising and brand needs
