[PPC Den Podcast Ep. 26] An Introduction to Bulk File Operations

SUBSCRIBE

Bulk File Operations

In this episode, Mike & Brett discuss a lesser known feature of Amazon advertising – bulk file operations. Bulk files allow you to upload & download large amounts of data into or out of your Amazon account very quickly. Changes that would normally be very time intensive, like mass bid optimization for example, can be applied much more efficiently when utilizing bulk files, which are essentially just spreadsheets with your advertising data. If you’re interested in learning more about how you can make changes more efficiently in your ad account, this episode is for you! We’ll see you in the Badger Den.
