Amazon: Grow your brand
One of the first steps you can take to grow your brand on Amazon is to become familiar with the Amazon advertising territory. The following categories can be found in Amazon search terms: Generic, Branded and Competitor.
Amazon sellers, your first priority is to defend your castle. This includes your brand search terms. “About 80% of searches on Amazon will be generic or unbranded, depending on the category. These generic terms offer the greatest growth opportunities.

This step will “actually mean that you are invading their territory or castle… which is the same reason why you should bid on your brand name to prevent other people from taking your branded sales.”
