Whenever you are spending money on Amazon – and especially in times when competition and uncertainty are on the rise – you want to do it as efficiently as possible. Sometimes the right steps sound a little counterintuitive at first glance but prove to have great potential in the long run.

It may be cheaper to use Amazon’s easy ways to grow your business by expanding into other countries. Compared to your home market, you can find less competition and lower market saturation in other markets, so every international investment might have a higher incremental ROAS (iROAS) than gaining the last percentages in an already saturated market.

The Challenge

Amazon’s Black Box is making strategic decisions difficult

Every manufacturer on Amazon knows that Amazon is quite reluctant to offer insights into the specifics of its market, so market size and market shares as well as competitor strategies are hard to grasp completely. We know that Amazon Vendors and Sellers are facing difficulties in making sound decisions on strategic questions, so we are shining a light on the black box to help our clients gain a competitive advantage.
