Amazon Advertising has exploded in recent years.  In fact, Amazon is now the 3rd largest online advertising platform behind only Facebook and Google.  Pretty impressive for a company who’s a retailer first, cloud computing 2nd, and online advertising 3rd.  

In this episode, I wanted to bring on the sharpest mind in Amazon Advertising that I know - OMG’s very own Chris Tyler.  I brought him on so we could deep dive into the two hottest trends in Amazon Advertising right now - Sponsored Brand Video (formerly Video in Search ads) and Amazon DSP.  Here’s a look at what we cover:

  • What is Amazon DSP and how can sellers use it to reach shoppers on an off Amazon?
  • How to target people actively shopping for your competitor's products who haven’t purchased yet.
  • How Sponsored Brand Video (SBV) ads are outperforming ALL other ad types for most of our clients.
  • 5 keys to a great Sponsored Brand Video Ad
  • How you can test SBV without spending a fortune on video production

Is something broken in your business?  Not reaching your growth goals like you’d hoped?  Then you likely have a systems or delegation problem.  

My guest today is Trent Dyrsmid.  Trent is the host of the Bright Ideas podcast as well as the founder of an Amazon reseller business that just ranked #254 on the Inc. 5000 list. He is also the co-founder of Flowster.app a premier workflow management tool for eCommerce businesses.  He knows a thing or two about systems, delegation, and growth.  He’s now fully delegated himself out of his Amazon reseller business as it continues to scale rapidly.  

How does he do it?  Clear systemization and delegation.  On the show, we talk about one of his favorite quotes from the Honorary Chairman of Toyota -

“We get brilliant results from average people managing brilliant processes – while our competitors get average or worse results from brilliant people managing broken processes”

~ Fujio Cho, Honorary Chairman of Toyota Motor Corporation

In this episode we cover:

  • What to systematize first - a 2-pronged test
  • When you have a systems problem vs. a people problem
  • What to delegate vs. what to do yourself
  • Why and when you should delegate something you’re really good at
  • The difference between process management and project management
  • How Flowster helps eCommerce companies with process management

Michael Jamin knows a thing or two about telling a good story.  He’s written for popular sitcoms like King of the Hill, Rules of Engagement, Tacoma FD, and Beavis & Butthead to name a few.  More importantly, for our purposes, he’s also the Co-Founder of Twirly Girl - an eComm brand that features some truly magical storytelling ads.  I wanted to have Michael on the show so we could learn some of his secrets….and because I knew it would be a ton of FUN.  He delivered.  Here’s a quick look at what we cover:

  • Using setup and punchline to deliver features and benefits in a truly fun, funny and memorable way
  • If customers focus on price, it’s your fault and how to fix it
  • How some powerful tweak in FB ads dropped their cost per share from $178 to just $1.16
  • When Michael combined what he knew about TV script writing and eComm Twirly Girl grew 30.6%
  • Why people aren’t really buying stuff, but rather relationships and magic
  • A few powerful “story makeovers”
