Before we can create our campaign we must clearly understand our target audience. This will help develop the campaign structure and inform the way you create the campaign. The key to successful advertising is truly understanding the wants and needs of your customers. To understand our audience we can ask Who? What? Where? When? Why? This chapter discusses how to understand your audience and build a campaign around their wants and needs.
Jetzt beginnt der aufwändigste Teil der Konkurrenzanalyse: Sie müssen die Informationen beschaffen, die Sie laut Schritt 2 benötigen. Hierbei kommt viel manuelle Recherchearbeit auf Sie zu. Glücklicherweise gibt es viele Informationsquellen, die Sie überwiegend sogar kostenfrei nutzen können. Einige Ansatzpunkte für Ihre Recherche finden Sie in unserem Artikel zur Findung von Markt- und Branchendaten. Weitere Quellen, um Informationen für die Wettbewerbsanalyse zu finden, sind:
Subtracting the COGS, FBA fees, and Miscellaneous from the Selling Price leaves $9 in profit per unit (27-4-11-3=9). So we can spend up to $9 to get a sale and still be profitable. To calculate our ACoS threshold for our break-even point, simply divide the net income from the Selling price, ie $9/$27=.33. This leaves us with a 33% ACoS threshold, meaning that we would be making money on any keyword that has a Cost of Sale at 33% or less.

Daneben gibt es noch eine weitere Art der Konkurrenz durch Lieferanten. Wenn diese plötzlich ihre eigenen Materialien oder Halbfertigerzeugnisse zu den Produkten verarbeiten, die Ihr Unternehmen herstellt, werden sie zur direkten Konkurrenz. Der gleiche Effekt tritt ein, wenn Sie ein Handelsunternehmen führen und ein Hersteller Ihrer Waren vertreibt diese selbst. Informieren Sie sich deshalb auch über Ihre Lieferanten, wenn Sie eine Konkurrenzanalyse erstellen.
I like to turn on PPC campaigns as soon as I have just a few reviews. Others may say to wait until you have 10 or more, and though it may be true that your conversion rate is higher as you have more reviews, I think it is more valuable to get a more active listing (remember that PPC campaigns often boost your organic ranking), and you can start collecting data on converting keywords so that you can also incorporate those into your listing if it makes sense.
For example, assume your search ad generated 5,000 impressions in one day, of which 100 visitors have come to your site, and three have converted for a total profit (not revenue!) of $300. In this case, a single visitor for that keyword is worth $3 to your business. Those 5,000 impressions in 24 hours could generate a click-through rate of between 18-36% with a #1 ranking (see the Slingshot SEO study for more on potential click-through rates), which would mean 900-1800 visits per day, at $3 each, or between 1 and 2 million dollars per year. No wonder businesses love search marketing!
The errors in technical SEO are often not obvious, and therefore one of the most popular. Mistakes in robots.txt and 404 pages, pagination and canonical URLs, hreflang tags and 301 redirects, http vs https and www vs non www versions: each of them can seriously spoil all efforts to promote the site. One quality SEO website analysis is enough to solve all the main problems in this part forever.
