If you’re looking for creating Shopping Campaigns, or Google Shopping Ads to boost your sales for your Amazon store, it’s not possible. However, text ads are an exception, which, when properly set up, can attract new, potential customers.
Feed-driven Product ads are search ads that advertisers can dynamically create to show relevant product information like name, price, and availability against product-specific search queries on Google. These ads usually increase chances for e-commerce businesses to show their products and maximize traffic and revenue. In fact, while Google Shopping is an essential part of every online retailer’s advertising strategy, advertisers can also show search text ads alongside shopping results.
Use Google Text Ads to boost your Amazon store sales
When we searched for “iPad pro”, we saw two different ads. This iPad is advertised as both a classic text ad and an image ad. Note that the search ad, like the shopping one, shows both the title and the price of the iPad Pro. Ads that show product title and price can be made manually.
But what if you want to advertise hundreds if not thousands of products? Obviously, you don’t want to spend days and nights manually updating thousands of text ads. This is exactly what BlueWinston was created for, so you can advertise a lot of products in minutes and save hundreds and hundreds of hours.

Tips for making even better ads
We used the ad generator to give you an idea of what it should look like. Note, however, that instead of “www.example.com/super-shoes” there will be a link to your Amazon store.
Call out promotions and discounts – If your feed includes both a product’s original and sale price, you can decide to include them both in your text ads or to show the percentage off.
As you might gave already found out, online shoppers are very sensitive to promotions. Nothing generates high click-through rates better than highlighting a sale.
Build social proof – Try reaching your customers by clicking on your ad. For example, you can mention which of your products are best selling and why.
Build urgency – Try to advertize your product with urgency, so the potential buyer would buy it instantly.
