Desperately Seeking Effective Search Marketing Strategies?

Our no-nonsense report will break down the tried-and-true tactics the Top 1,000 use.

America’s Top 1,000 web merchants boosted their collective monthly paid search spend by 17.8% last year to $158.4 million. Amazon alone grew its spend in 2014 by 57% to $12.2 million per month, according to estimates by search engine marketing firm ROI Revolution Inc. These growth rates reflect a sea change in prioritizing products on a retail web site over advertising the site itself: natural search used to be viewed as the marketing initiative that drove more traffic but ads didn’t call out a specific product with images, which is precisely what online shoppers want and what PLAs provide. This increased spending is driving more traffic to retailers’ web sites, as data in this report show: on average, Top 1,000 e-retailers obtained 48.6% of their search traffic from paid sources in 2014, up from 43.5% in 2013. Reap ROI dividends as you learn to follow in these experts’ footsteps!
