The role Amazon PPC plays in a successful Amazon business has become increasingly significant over recent years.

What was once a simple click of a few buttons to get launched now involves a steep learning curve and a large time investment.

As such it’s no surprise more sellers than ever are turning to Amazon PPC management agencies to launch and scale their PPC advertising.

If you’re considering doing the same, you may be wondering how to find the best marketing agency to help you with PPC management strategies.

So, in this article, I’ll break down my honest experiences engaging with all kinds of agencies in the industry over recent years.

From managed automation services to all-in-one Amazon marketing agencies – we’ll present the best of the best so you can get the support you need.

What makes a good Amazon PPC management agency?

A good Amazon PPC management agency is one that considers your entire business when implementing its strategies.

For example, when launching a new product your number one goal should be establishing organic ranking.

If your PPC agency implements a cookie-cutter approach to this new product in the same way they would to an established product, you may not get optimal results.

It’s no use having an Amazon PPC agency that pulls in one direction while the rest of your business pulls in another.

Other things to be on the lookout for are good communication, documented success stories or case studies, and recommendations from within the Amazon seller community.

What type of Amazon PPC management agency is best for me?

To help give the best recommendation based on your specific circumstances, we created this guide in three clear sections:

  • Managed automation services: Lower cost services (thanks to software automation), but still have a dedicated account manager for strategic input. Best for sellers looking for support on a tighter budget.
  • Full-service Amazon agencies: Agencies offering a full suite of services beyond just PPC. Best for sellers looking for a complete growth partner.
  • Dedicated Amazon PPC agencies: Agencies focusing solely on Amazon PPC management. Best for sellers who have all other areas (design, copywriting, etc.) dialed in but want expert PPC help.

For each section, we’ll list the best options and give a summary of their core features.

NOTE

Most Amazon PPC agencies encourage potential clients to book a call rather than display pricing so where necessary we have provided general industry guidelines.

Best managed automation services

Managed automation services are PPC advertising agencies that have software at the core of what they do.

This software automates the vast majority of time-consuming optimization tasks meaning less human input is required which results in a comparatively lower cost service.

You still benefit from an account manager who will guide you through the process and offer strategic input so this is a great middle-ground solution between a DIY Amazon PPC tool and a full-blown agency service.

PRO TIP

These Amazon PPC agencies are best for sellers who want strategic input and expertise but aren’t yet ready to pay for a full agency experience.

Let’s get into our best picks!

Best full-service Amazon marketing agencies

A full-service Amazon marketing agency will not only manage your PPC campaigns, but also work on other optimization aspects such as your product images, listing copy, and A+ content.

Amazon PPC on its own won’t build a great Amazon business but instead needs to be used to amplify a listing that already converts well.

So having this focus across your entire Amazon operations can be a huge asset in driving your business forward.

PRO TIP

With this extra work comes an extra cost and these services are generally best for growing sellers generating $20,000 per month or more in PPC revenue.

Best dedicated Amazon PPC management agencies

Dedicated Amazon PPC management agencies focus on one core competency – making your Amazon ads absolutely hum.

They should of course be aware of best practices in other areas of the Amazon selling dynamic like good listing optimization, but they only offer management services for your advertising.

The strength of this is that they can become the best in the industry at what they do.

However, the weakness can be that they lose sight of other key factors like organic ranking. So, be sure to look into each of these options and see which is the best fit for your business.

Amazon PPC Management Agency FAQs

Amazon PPC agencies are experts in managing PPC accounts all the way from keyword and competitor research to campaign launch and optimization. Outsourcing Amazon PPC management to an agency can help give you back valuable time in your week to focus on other key areas of growth.

Amazon PPC agencies vary in their pricing depending on the services they offer and the clientele they target. Some agencies will only work with large, enterprise clients whereas some specialize in helping new sellers launch. Typically the cheapest option will be a managed automation service like Quartile, Perpetua, or Teikametrics. Whereas if you are looking to hand the reigns over entirely to an agency you might expect to pay in the region of 10% of ad spend.

There is no exact science, it really comes down to your individual journey as a business. If you feel managing ads yourself with an Amazon PPC software tool is becoming a hindrance to the growth of your business, then that is usually the time to explore outsourcing this aspect in one way or another.

Choosing the right Amazon PPC management agency for your business primarily comes down to budget and skillset. If your budget is on the lower end, you’ll be limited by that and should look at managed automation services. Whereas if budget isn’t so much of a factor, the key is studying the digital marketing services offered by the agencies included here and seeing which is the best blend for the current stage of your business.

Are Amazon PPC agencies worth it?

At the right time, yes.

A good Amazon PPC agency can be a valuable asset in your business journey and prevent growth bottlenecks caused by trying to wear too many hats.

They of course come at a cost, so they only really become worth it once your Amazon business is generating at least some revenue.

If you want to outsource to an Amazon PPC management agency early in your journey, the most cost-effective solution is a managed automation service like Quartile.

If as you grow you want support across a number of areas of your business then your best option is a full-service agency like Incrementum.

And, if you want a dedicated, top-of-their-game Amazon PPC agency then look no further than Trivium.

If you’re still undecided and think you might prefer to run your Amazon PPC in-house, you can also explore our Amazon PPC course designed to take you from beginner to pro with Amazon ads.
