AMZPPC # 132: Should You Segment Automatic Sponsored Product Campaigns?

Amazon PPC’s Automatic Sponsored Product Campaigns-- everybody’s favorite, right? Usually not. We often see auto-campaigns with unruly, high ACOS.

Michael and Michael analyzed a few million ad groups from Ad Badger’s software community and tested this theory on a client’s campaigns.

You won’t want to miss the first-ever episode that PPC Den Podcast recorded over several weeks while compiling data and running the test.
