Perpetua introduces a powerful new feature - "Niches" - designed to revolutionize the way Amazon advertisers approach market analysis and competitor tracking. In this comprehensive guide, we'll delve into what Niches are, who can benefit from them, why they're essential, how they work, and the associated pricing structure.

What are Niches?

Niches are dynamic groupings of competing ASINs (Amazon Standard Identification Numbers) created through the identification of search term overlap. This innovative feature enables advertisers to establish unique niches for their top-selling proprietary ASINs, facilitating a deeper understanding of market dynamics and potential revenue.

The Niche Generation Process




The first proprietary ASIN we used to generate the Niche


The proprietary ASINs that had a high keyword overlap with the seedASIN, so we included them in the Niche


All non-proprietary ASINs

  1. We gather a list of all the proprietary ASINs for a specific GeoCompany. These ASINs must have estimated sales data in Prism, were found in recent search engine results pages (SERP) we have within the past 4 weeks, and high confidence ASINs.

  2. Then we sort the qualified ASIN based on their estimated sales in the last 4 weeks, from highest to lowest.

  3. Starting with the best-selling ASIN in the GeoCompany, we retrieve all of the search terms they appear for from all keywords we scrape, pick the top 50 search terms with the highest Search Frequency Rank and the seedASIN is ranked up to 25th position. (Last 4 weeks)

  4. Next, for each of the keywords for which the seed ASIN appears, we retrieve the top organic 48 ASINs (first page) for each of these keywords.

  5. We organise the list of ASINs based on how frequently they appear for the seed ASIN's keywords (Keyword overlap).

    1. (# of times nonSeedASIN appeared on any of the 50 keywords/Total # of keywords)*100


    2. # of keywords nonSeedASIN appeared on out of the 50 keywords.

  6. To create a Niche, we select the top twenty ASINs that have keyword overlap with the seed ASIN. If there are proprietary ASINs among the top 20 competitors, we include them in the Niche, but ensure that there are always 20 competitive products in total.

  7. Once the Niche is created, we remove the seed ASIN and any other proprietary ASINs we included in the Niche from the list step (2). We repeat the process until no more ASINs are left under this GeoCompany.

The Importance of Niches and Their Benefits

Niches cater specifically to Amazon Campaign Managers focused on winning and growing market share for existing products. By providing insights into search competitors and potential revenue opportunities, Niches empower advertisers to optimize their advertising goals, ultimately driving revenue growth

Perpetua's feature, "Niches," emerges as a pivotal tool for advertisers, redefining the way market analysis is conducted and competitors are tracked. In this section, we'll explore the myriad benefits Niches bring to the table, empowering Amazon Campaign Managers and advertisers to navigate the complexities of the marketplace with precision and confidence.


1️⃣Simplified Decision-Making:

  • Niches streamline the decision-making process for Ad Campaign Managers by providing a clear roadmap on where to focus resources. This simplification is crucial for those aiming to increase their market share and revenue efficiently.

2️⃣ Identifying Competing ASINs:

  • One of the primary benefits of Niches is the rapid identification of competing ASINs. Advertisers can swiftly recognize products that share search terms with their own proprietary ASINs, gaining valuable insights into their competitive landscape.

3️⃣ Understanding Competitor Outranking:

  • With Niches, advertisers can gain a comprehensive understanding of where competitors are outranking their products. This knowledge empowers strategic decision-making, allowing advertisers to refine their approaches and enhance product visibility.

4️⃣ Quantifying Revenue Potential:

  • Niches provide a unique opportunity to quantify the revenue potential for each market opportunity. Advertisers can estimate the financial prospects associated with specific search terms, enabling informed investment decisions.

5️⃣ Efficient Scaling:

  • Perhaps one of the most significant benefits of Niches is the ability to achieve all the above at scale. Advertisers can efficiently apply insights across a range of products and markets, scaling their efforts without compromising precision.
