[PPC Den Podcast Ep. 23] Making Sense of New to Brand Metrics

Making Sense Of New To Brand Metrics


New to Brand Metrics

In this episode, Mike & Brett talk about the latest new metrics that were recently released for Amazon advertisers: new-to-brand. These metrics are meant to help advertisers identify strategies that can drive customer acquisition and efficient business growth on Amazon. They include new-to-brand orders, new-to-brand sales, % of orders new-to-brand, and % of sales new-to-brand. These metrics give you an idea about the percentage of your customers who have purchased from your brand within the past 12 months, which could eventually play a key role in understanding the true value of your PPC conversions over time. While these metrics are only available in sponsored brand ads, video ads, and display ads, these metrics could eventually prove to be quite useful. Right now though, Mike & Brett have some opinions to share about the current effectiveness of these metrics, what they’re lacking, and what we’re expecting going forward. Don’t miss this one! We’ll see you in the Badger Den!
