If you’ve never heard of a strategy called dayparting, you’ve come to the right place! Dayparting is a simple concept: you set a schedule for your Amazon PPC ad campaigns to run during certain days and times. The idea here is to help you maximize your ads’ visibility, use ad budget wisely, as well as improve the overall results of your campaigns.
Even though the practice of dayparting, or ad scheduling as it is also referred to, is well-known, most Amazon Sellers don’t utilize it as often as they should. They are aware of it and even how it works, but in order to do it effectively, it takes a fair amount of effort and analysis to make it work correctly. Dayparting takes an investment of time and effort, but it can help improve your advertising return-on-investment (ROI).
Dayparting is helpful because your ads will run only during (hopefully) the days and times that most people are shopping. A good place to start is to set your ads to not run during overnight hours when traffic is usually really low. If you want to do in-depth testing, you can set up identical campaigns that each run at different days and times to see which perform the best. This can help you narrow down your dayparting strategy to the days and times that work best for your business.
