Next up is deciding on your default bid, Amazon’s pay-per-click ads are set up as an auction for ad space, so the default bid is the maximum you’re willing to pay each time someone clicks on your ad. Initially, we recommend setting this number as high as $5 dollars per campaign. PPC Campaigns Guidelines Amazon Seller Central

You’re trying to collect as many data about the advertising market in your vertical as possible, and if your default bid is too low, your ads will only get shown sporadically and it’ll be difficult to trust the data you’ve collected. Starting with a bold default CPC (Cost Per Click) will help you, so you want to make sure to outbid the competition at first.

For a single product we recommend the following campaigns:

  1. One Automatic Campaign.
  2. One Manual Campaign having following ad groups respectively:
  3. Broad Match
  4. Phrase Match
  5. Exact Match

Start an Automatic Campaign and monitor it for 2 to 3 week. Once you have got sales then you should right away start a Manual Campaign and start with Broad Match Ad group. Filter and get your best-performing keywords from search terms report and add to your Manual Broad ad group.

Next up, is choosing the keywords you want to advertise for. Amazon will show you a list of suggested keywords – don’t just blindly trust these, those are there to make Amazon money, not you. Make sure they perfectly fit your product offer or ignore them.

NOTE: It’s strongly advised to never go for a manual Campaign first because customers search through the variety of words and choose their products. In order to get the bestselling and profitable keywords, setup Automatic PPC Campaign first. Get the report after 2 week minimum and choose the keywords which performed well or provided you sales, Acos, Conversion Rate and sales.
