Data-Driven Decisions in Media Planning

At its core, media planning with CPGIO is far from a speculative venture; it's a precision-based science. We immerse ourselves in an analytical approach, evaluating essential marketing KPIs that report on the performance of your campaign strategies.

Our expertise turns data on Spend, Impressions/CPM, Sessions, Conversions, ROAS, ACOS, Revenue, and Margin into strategic insights, forming the backbone of resource allocation across platforms and campaign types.

Discovery: First, we'll work with you to understand your products, categories, unique advantages, brand equity on Amazon, and other factors. This step is crucial in developing a media plan that's tailored to your specific needs and goals.

Media Plan Templates: Based on where you are and where your current brand equity stands, we'll use different media plan templates to help you succeed. For example, if you're launching a new product, we'll consider the realistic time it takes to build momentum by focusing on reviews, conversions, and other factors that trigger Amazon's search algorithms and rank factor. If you're an established brand, we'll use models that help you maintain your momentum and continue to drive traffic and sales.

Forecasting and Demand Planning: We'll help you build a media plan, sales forecast, and demand plan for inventory. Our key assumptions are based on our category knowledge and 12 years of experience in the CPG space. Given various scenarios, we know what's practical, including new item launches, listing overhauls, or improving distressed or large product catalogs on Amazon with many areas for improvement.

Launching and Adjusting Campaigns: Once your media plan is in place, we'll launch your campaigns and adjust initial KPI assumptions with real figures as we go. We'll use data to target areas that can help optimize your campaigns and improve KPIs over time. Our goal is to help you succeed and grow your business on Amazon, however, this often requires many other factors than media buying, including fulfillment speed, listing quality, images, copy, pricing, and more. Amazon’s algorithms consider a wide number of factors when determining your rank, which ultimately, determines the success of your media campaigns and organic sales.

Challenges in Forecasting: We know that forecasting for completely new brands or innovations can be challenging. That's why we lean into our vast domain knowledge in online CPG to make media plans and forecasts as realistic as possible. We work with you to gather information and adjust forecasts accordingly.

At CPGIO, we understand that media plans and projections can change. That's why we're always fluid in adjusting to actual KPIs and demand plans accordingly. We aim to help you succeed on Amazon, and we have the expertise and experience to help you do that.

Maximizing Visibility with Strategic Media Planning

A comprehensive media plan is crucial for brands in today's competitive marketplace. Carefully considering the target audience's behavior, preferences, and needs, a well-crafted media plan can effectively reach the audience in a cost-efficient manner.

Standing Out From Established Competition on Amazon

With so many options available to consumers, it can be difficult for these brands to distinguish themselves and get noticed. This can make it challenging for brands to reach their target audience and achieve their marketing goals.

  • Utilize Unique Selling Points: Identify what sets your brand apart from others and highlight those unique qualities in your marketing efforts.
  • Know Your Competitors: Stay informed on what your competitors are doing and find ways to differentiate yourself from them.
  • Focus on Customer Experience: Prioritize providing exceptional customer experiences to establish a loyal customer base.
  • Utilize Targeted Advertising: Advertise to your specific target audience, rather than a general audience, to reach those who are most likely to be interested in your brand.
  • Create Engaging Content: Develop content that not only showcases your brand but also provides value to your audience.
  • Stay Ahead of Trends: Stay on top of industry trends and incorporate them into your marketing strategy to stay relevant and appealing to your target audience.
  • Utilize Influencer Marketing: Partner with influencers who align with your brand values and target audience to reach a wider audience.

To overcome these challenges, brands that sell on Amazon need an experienced digital media agency to lead their brand to exponential growth opportunities.
