Why have an expert work on your Amazon Ads? 

So why do you even need an Amazon Ads expert? Can't you do it all yourself? Unfortunately not. Amazon Ads is one of the most robust and complex ad platforms out there. Without an expert working on your campaigns, it's very hard to reach your target audience, improve your advertising costs, and hit your campaign goals.

Amazon PPC is a specialized skill

Every ad platform is different and there are definitely nuances, skills, and expert specialties that you want your expert to have. Amazon Ads are not the same as Google Ads (even though they share a lot of the same advertising principles), so a Google Ads Expert who's never worked with Amazon before is not going to be the best fit for your project.

Amazon PPC experts have experience using the right tools

If you want to run your advertising campaigns correctly you need to use the right tools and Amazon experts should certainly know of the best ones. These can be tools that help automate keyword research, find negative keywords, manage bids better, and A/B test campaigns. 

Save time and ad budgets by working with the right experts

Don't waste your time working with beginners. There's a huge learning curve with any marketing discipline and if you work with an advertising agency or expert from the get-go you can save thousands of dollars and scale your brand much faster. An experienced Amazon marketer who has proven experience in your niche knows the best campaign strategies, campaign types, relevant keywords and bid optimizations you should start with. 

So skip the learning curve, and come meet your hand-picked vetted expert on Mayple's platform!
