Top 12 Ad Badger Alternatives for 2023

Ad Badger, the company behind the famous PPC Den Podcast, has its own PPC tool and managed service offerings for Amazon sellers. They’re also well known for their excellent customer support, qualified account managers, and in-depth learning resources.

Ad Badger, like any other software, also has its downsides. These include a lack of dayparting abilities, weak campaign creation tools, and comparatively worse bidding algorithms.

Worry not though, because we compiled a list of 12 other software that do a better job than Ad Badger at managing your PPC. We cover features, benefits, and pricing for each tool so you have all the information you need to make a good decision.

1. AiHello

We’re starting off the list with AiHello, a powerful software solution that automates your Amazon ads. AiHello comes with a fully automated campaign creator, a keyword management system, and a top-tier bidding algorithm. They also assign an Amazon expert to help you out with your strategy and implementation. 


Complete Campaign Creator

AiHello’s automated campaign creator is a powerful tool that launches multiple campaigns in one go without you having to do the setup or keyword research. All that’s needed from your end is the ASINs you want to advertise, your daily budget, and the campaigns you want to set up. AiHello takes over from there and starts launching new campaigns in bulk which grow your traffic and sales exponentially over time.

Real AI Bid Automation 

Although plenty of PPC software companies claim to use AI for bid adjustment, AiHello is one of the few that actually follow through on this claim. AiHello also lets you track your bids through ‘autopilot logs’ and learn the reason why each bid was adjusted.

Customizable Day Parting 

This feature determines your best and worst performing hours and days so it can adjust your spending accordingly and reduce your ACoS.

Keyword Management 

AiHello’s keyword management system lets you increase your spending on relevant, high-volume keywords and cut back on underperforming ones by automatically adding your converting search terms as keywords in your manual campaigns, adding new high-performing keywords found by the AI, and adding negatives to your campaign.

Dedicated Account Manager 

Your subscription comes with your own PPC expert who’s available 24/7 via email and up to 8 hours a month on Zoom to help you out with anything that’s related to the tool, Amazon, or PPC strategy.


AiHello has a tier-based pricing system that is based on your monthly ad spend. 

Here are the tiers: 

For sellers between $0-$7k in spend, it’s $175/month

For sellers between $7k-$20k its $400/month 

For sellers above $20k, its $450 + 1% of ad spend 

And for agencies, it’s $800/month flat fee for unlimited accounts

2. Teikametrics

Teikametrics is a software vendor and managed service provider that was founded in 2015. Since then, they’ve been offering PPC assistance for Amazon and Walmart sellers through their unique tools and services. They have become quite popular for their AI-based bidding algorithms, market intelligence tools, and the other features they offer.  


Simplified Campaign Creator – Teikametrics launches new campaigns by gathering keywords from the search term reports of your current campaigns, which is useful but can’t really compete with tools able to find keywords on their own.

Automated Harvesting and Negation – This feature automates keyword harvesting from auto to manual campaigns and negates wasteful search terms to increase the accuracy of your targeting.

Automated ACoS Targets and Campaign Budgets – An automated algorithm changes your ACoS targets as well as your campaign budgets for you to help take the guesswork out of setting up your account.

Day Parting – Using this feature, you can focus your spending during high CVR periods to lower your ad spend and ACoS.

Smart Bidding – With Teikametrics, your bids are optimized based on more than just ACoS. They also take into account factors like seasonality, inventory levels, and product price so you can get the best results possible.


Teikametrics’ only pricing plan charges a 3% commission on your total ad spend, which can be great news for smaller businesses, but very expensive for large sellers.

On the bright side though, they don’t require long-term contracts, which is part of what makes them a great Ad Badger alternative. 

3. BidX

BidX, a popular tool among European businesses, is the next Ad Badger alternative on the list. They offer a user-friendly tool with customizable rule based automation and a simplified campaign creator that saves you a lot of time. You can also get extra PPC assistance through the managed service plans that they offer.


Keyword Suggestions – BidX imports keyword suggestions from Amazon onto the platform so that sellers can use them in both their old and new campaigns.

Multi-Campaign Creator – BidX’s campaign creator is a more user-friendly version of what Amazon offers and allows you to create more than one campaign at a time. Its only downside is that it requires you to find keywords manually, which can take a lot of time.

Customizable Dashboard – This feature is one of our favorites from BidX, because it lets you customize the metrics you want to see and how you want to see them (charts, graphs, etc.), making it easy to analyze your account.

Harvesting and Negation – This feature helps you improve your targeting by letting you set up rules that negate irrelevant search terms and harvest valuable ones from your auto campaigns. 

Rule-Based Automation – You can automate a lot of PPC tasks and get better control over your account using personalized ‘if X then Y’ rules. These rules can save you a lot of time in the long run but the setup process is long and it can take you a lot of time and effort to find the combination of rules that work for you.

Ready to skyrocket your sales?

AiHello automates everything, from campaign creation, bidding, keyword addition or removal, and negation so you can grow your business. We also have our own in-house team of PPC specialists, copywriters, catalog experts, and graphic designers to help you with all things Amazon.


BidX has these 4 ad spend-based tiers:

$199 up to $5k monthly spend

$399 up to $10k monthly spend

$599 up to $15k monthly spend

4% of ad spend after $15k monthly spend

4. Perpetua

Perpetua is a popular PPC platform that recently merged with Sellics to offer advertising services for Amazon, Walmart, Instacart, and Target sellers.


Fixed Campaign Creator – Perpetua doesn’t automate your current campaigns, it actually stops them entirely, then uses the keywords they contain to create their own new campaigns.

Completely Hands-Off – Perpetua’s platform is completely hands-off, which can be both a good and a bad thing, depending on who you ask. Using a hands-off tool saves you a lot of time, but also gives you way less control over your account because the software has very little room for customization.

Organic Tracking – You can pay an extra $50 per month and track the organic rank of your products on your 25 most important search terms.

Video and Image Builder– For another extra fee, you can also unlock a feature that makes custom videos and graphics for your SB and SD campaigns. This feature is entirely unique to Perpetua which makes it a great choice for sellers who utilize all 3 ad types.


Perpetua’s pricing depends on the amount of ad spend they manage for you. If your spend is low, you’ll only be charged flat monthly payments, and once it becomes higher, you’ll pay a commission on your ad spend as well. 

$250/month until $5k in spend

$550/month until $10k in spend

$550/month + a percentage of spend until $200k in spend

5. Quartile

Quartile is a full-funnel PPC software that automates Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Walmart ads. It’s a great Ad Badger alternative, especially for businesses that run ads on several platforms.


AI and Rule Based Bidding – Quartile lets you automate your PPC using both AI and custom rules. This gives you the benefit of having fast, efficient automation without having to sacrifice full control over your ads.

Semi-managed Service – When you sign up, you’re assigned an account manager who will onboard you and help you set everything up. You can also reach them on the phone or by email for any questions about the software or your performance. 

Full Funnel Advertising – You can benefit from Quartile’s full-funnel advertising by automating both your Google and Facebook ads to drive more traffic and sales to your listings.

Automatic Campaign Creation – Quartile creates auto campaigns for your ASINs then uses their search terms to automatically create single-keyword campaigns for you. This can help you expand your reach, but it can also leave you with a huge number of campaigns if you’re not careful.

Goal-Related Settings – Quartile’s pre-made goal-related settings like ‘product launch’ or ‘conservative’ can help you hit your targets easily even if you’re not too tech-savvy or familiar with the platform.


Quartile works exclusively on long-term contracts that can span up to a few years. Their prices start at $895/month and can reach $10k/month depending on your ad spend, making them one of the most pricey Ad Badger alternatives.

6. Skai

Skai is a PPC software that automates your Amazon ads and the ads of 80+ other platforms like Snapchat and Apple. They’re typically popular among large enterprises, but medium-sized businesses have also been using them as an alternative to Ad Badger.


Good for Enterprise Brands –  Skai can be a great option if you spend millions of dollars per year and have ads on multiple platforms. They’re known for being very capable of managing this level of complexity using their platform and customer success teams.

Rule-Based Automation – Skai only offers rule-based automation, which gives you a higher level of control over your account but can take a long time to set up and learn.

Intentwise is a PPC software company that provides advanced automation and analytics tools for medium-sized sellers on Amazon, Walmart, and Instacart. 


Competitor Insights – This feature helps you understand your performance and how it compares to your competitors so you can set attainable targets for your business.

Recommendations Engine – Intentwise’s automated recommendations tell you when to transfer keywords between campaigns or negate irrelevant search terms to enhance your advertising.

Strong Rules and Strong Algorithms – Both the customizable rules and hands-off automation are pretty strong with Intenwise, which isn’t the case with other platforms.

Adtomic is a basic PPC tool offered by the popular Amazon software company, Helium10. Its a budget-friendly option that comes with basic automation and a user-friendly interface, making it a solid alternative to Ad Badger for sellers who don’t need all the bells and whistles.


Objective-based Settings – Adtomic offers three standard settings that help you optimize your campaigns toward certain end goals: Launch, Liquidate, and Grow. 

Rudimentary bid adjustments – Although they aren’t very advanced, Adtomic’s bid adjustments can still save you the time and effort of manually making changes every day.

9. M19

M19 is a French PPC company that helps sellers with their bids and with creating campaigns they call ‘strategies’. The tools they offer are easy to use and come with lots of useful features, making it a strong alternative to Ad Badger.


Target research tools – M19’s on-platform research tools help you uncover new keywords and product targets. The way this works is the software uses a seed keyword or ASIN to generate similar keywords that you can include in your campaign.  

Organic Ranking Tools – M19 gives you the tools you need to track your organic rank and adjust your bids accordingly. Whenever your product starts to rank for certain keywords, M19 changes your bids and TOS boost so that your PPC doesn’t cannibalize your organic sales.
