Section 2: Top 4 insights about Amazon analytics:  

  1. Insights on Ad Performance 

Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising is a cornerstone of Amazon's marketing strategy, allowing sellers to bid on keywords and place targeted ads. PPC analytics zooms out and shows how the ad spend profile for an advertiser. This is a great way to know areas of opportunities in improving ACOS. This includes the following:  

  1. Spend and performance on ASIN bands  

  2. Spend and performance on campaign types 

  3. Spend and performance on placement types 

  4. Spend and performance on keyword types 

  1. Combining ads and retail data:  

PPC analytics combines ad spend and total sales and shows a trend line between the two. Tools like Atom11 let’s sellers and agencies evaluate this data at an overall level, at an ASIN level or at a group of ASIN level. For ex.: Combining AOV data with total sales and best seller ranks Combining inventory data with ad performance and total sales Combining Ad spend with profitability data Combining TACOS with ad spend and total sales  Digital Shelf to understand competitor pricing and seller ranks  

  1. Analyzing Product Performance Metrics 

Monitoring product performance metrics is crucial for evaluating the success of your offerings on Amazon. Metrics such as sales velocity, conversion rate and customer reviews provide invaluable insights into product demand, competitiveness and customer satisfaction. By analyzing these metrics, sellers can refine their product strategies and enhance profitability.  

  1. Optimizing Inventory Management with Predictive Analytics 

Effective inventory management is a balancing act between supply and demand. Simply listing the products online without checking their level of popularity might directly and unnecessarily impact your inventory costs.

  1. Root cause analytics:

While comparing 2 different time periods for analytics, Atom11 provides a root cause analyzer. Which means it tells you what could have caused sales fluctuations between 2 periods of time.   For ex. In the below photo, you can see that orders are in red, which means that those ASINs lost sales. Anything that reduced in absolute value is denoted as red. Anything that increased in absolute value is denoted in green. In this case, you are seeing ASINs that lost orders in comparison to a previous period. Next to orders, there are parameters that impact orders – for ex. Ad spend, ad performance, Average Order Value (AOV), organic page views, in-stock % etc.. With a simple view, the root cause analyzer tells you what parameters increased/ reduced leading to an impact on lost orders.

  1. Digital Shelf:

Track your organic and sponsored keyword rank on page 1 with atom11’s digital shelf dashboard. You can use this data for your tracking purposes as well as automating your search rank vs. Account bids.   

  1. Power BI/ Looker integrations:

Everyone has their own way of looking at data. That’s why power BI and looker integrations come in handy. With atom11, we can set up your looker integrations in seconds and set up data the way you want to see it.

  1. Alerts:

Data analytics is a mitigative activity. Sellers/ agencies must aggregate data from multiple reports to find reasons for sales fluctuations. But what if there were alerts to tell you exactly what to analyze. With atom11, you can set up alerts for almost anything. Few examples:  

  1. Sales fluctuation alerts: Find which ASINs gained/ lost sales. This daily report is pushed into your email every morning, telling you exactly which ASINs to focus on and find out reasons for growth/ decline.     

  2. Category change alerts: Amazon is known to make inadvertent changes to product subcategories. This leads to a sales drop, drop in ad performance and search ranks. But sub-category changes are hard to spot, especially if you have many ASINs. With category change alerts, you can get a daily report on any inadvertent changes on your ASIN noding/ sub cats on a daily basis.  

  3. Stock alert: You can set up stock alerts if ASIN DOH or number of units fall below a certain number 

  4. Buy box alerts: If you have a digital shelf subscription with atom11, you can also set up alerts about lost buy-box.
