Boost Conversions With This Essential Amazon Sponsored Ad Strategy – AMPM Podcast EP178

Making all the right moves from the very beginning can mean all the difference between a successful Amazon seller and a flop.

While a rare occurrence, new sellers have been known to sweep in and totally dominate their niches. However, achieving this feat never comes easy and can only be done by choosing a solid product to source and employing a winning strategy on Amazon.

In episode 178 of the AMPM Podcast, host Manny Coats interviews Amazon seller Janine Hong, a relative newcomer to the Amazon world that has absolutely crushed it by using a unique Amazon sponsored ad strategy and leveraging the power of the Helium 10 tools suite. She has advocated the significant role that Helium 10 has played in her growth as an Amazon business owner.

During 2017, she was able to earn over $400,000 and is positioned to do around $2 million by the end of 2018. In using Helium 10 tools like Magnet, Cerebro, Scribbles, and others, Janine has increased her conversion rate from low teens to 27% and 30% on two of her main products.

Additionally, she runs a terrific PPC campaign for her storefront, which is one of the most significant factors to maintaining her #1 position in her niche.

Besides taking advantage of Helium 10 tools, she has created her own PPC optimization strategy known as the “Stampede Method” that helps her to blow away her competition. This strategy allows her only to have to spend about 30 minutes a week adjusting her Amazon sponsored ads.
