Amazon PPC Management: Agency vs. Automation

Angela Yuan, September 12, 2018

Running Amazon Sponsored Products ads can be extremely lucrative for your e-commerce business. There’s no doubt, however, that there’s a steep learning curve with mastering the ins and outs of Amazon’s advertising platform.

Brands can choose to outsource Amazon PPC management to agencies. Depending on your budget restraints, however, this may not be the most cost-effective solution for every business.

Should I Outsource Amazon PPC Management to an Agency?

If your brand is available on Amazon, and you have limited time and/or minimal experience with managing Pay Per Click campaigns, you may want to consider outsourcing Amazon PPC management.

Agencies offering Amazon ad management services will have the knowledge and Amazon optimization software setup necessary to help manage your PPC campaigns for you, at scale.

Depending on your budget resources, agencies within Europe will typically charge a minimum fee of €500 – €1,000 per marketplace, and ask for 3–5% of your total ad spend budget. Of course, these figures will also vary greatly based on the size and fee structure of the agency, with larger established agencies easily commanding fees upwards of €10,000.

Should I use Amazon PPC Automation Software?

If your business already manages Amazon PPC in-house, it becomes critical to invest in the right software tools that can automate the more complex and time-consuming parts of running Amazon ads. We suggest starting answering all these questions with the help of this free Sellics Benchmarker tool.
