[PPC Den Podcast Ep. 104] How And Why To Use Negatives In Your Amazon PPC

How And Why To Use Negatives In Your Amazon PPC


We’ve spent a lot of time in the world of Amazon PPC, and we’ve come across many different philosophies to managing campaigns. However, there’s one approach that we just cannot understand: never using negatives – ever. While a negative keyword slip-up can lead to some harsh consequences, negative keywords and negative targeting are powerful allies if used the right way.

Brent Zahradnik from AMZ Pathfinder joins us once again as we discuss why some advertisers don’t use negatives and why you should.

We’ll see you in The Badger Den!
