How does LandingCube work?
Our marketing tools will work differently for you, based on a few factors. For example, your goals, your situation, where your business is at, what assets you have, which assets you’re trying to build.
If you’re lost and don’t know how to best use our awesome software to grow your business, don’t worry. This post is designed to walk you through a few templates for how LandingCube can help you to achieve your goals.
The first thing is to define your goals. Otherwise, you’ll be shooting blindly in the dark without a plan.

I want to:
- Build an email/Messenger list
- Launch my product
- Promote an existing product
- Use external traffic to get more reviews
What You Have to Work With
How you run your LandingCube campaigns will differ greatly depending on what your business already has in place.
See which of these applies to you:
- I have an email list
- I have a Messenger list
- I have Facebook Pixel data (from driving traffic to a landing page/your own store, for example)
- I have none of these (but I have sales history on Amazon)
- I have none (and no sales history on Amazon)
The more assets you have, the easier and cheaper it will be to run campaigns and drive traffic to Amazon.
If you don’t have assets like this, it’s a good idea to invest in campaigns specifically to build these assets.

Note that these templates are just to help you get started. For the best results, you’ll want to continue to test and iterate your campaigns.
How to Build an Email/Messenger List
A customer list is an incredibly valuable asset for any business to have. You’ll see how a list helps you cut down costs with most use cases below.
As Amazon sellers, you’re at a disadvantage, as you don’t own your customers. Amazon controls all customer details, and doesn’t disclose all information to you.
This is one of the main reasons LandingCube exists: to help Amazon sellers build a list and control their audience.

How to build a Messenger list with LandingCube
The most effective option to build Messenger lists is a JSON Click to Messenger ad. By keeping the customer experience within Facebook’s ecosystem, LandingCube’s Click to Messenger Ads allow you to get lists for very cheap.
Low vs High Discounts, and Cost Per Lead
Building a list can be a little expensive. While we’d argue it’s worth it, due to the value you can get out of your list in the future, make sure you can afford the expense.
For list building, a good suggestion is to set a target cost per lead. This means how much you’re willing to pay for each email/Messenger subscriber. This will be how much ad spend per subscriber, plus your cost of goods sold.
You spend $1000 on ads and get 200 subscribers, with a 70% discount that results in a $3 loss from each sale.
Your ad spend per subscriber is $5, and COGS is $3, so your total cost per lead is $8.
You can test a high discount & low discount campaign – it might turn out the low one works better, when factoring in COGS.
Calculating cost per lead will help you decide how much money you want to spend building your list, and how long you want to run your campaign.
This strategy requires a bit of investment by giving away so many discounts of 50% or more, so it’s not a strategy you want to run long-term.
Run your campaigns for about a month (more or less, depending how many discount codes your budget allows), and continue with smaller discounts if you want to continue building your list.
How to Use Your List
Once you have your list, a few things you can do with it are:
- Launch future products
- Use your list to build custom & lookalike audiences for Facebook targeting
- Run seasonal promotions
- Promote/up-sell additional products
- Send re-stock reminders (really effective for consumable products)
- Offer customer service & fix problems (preventing negative reviews)
- Ask for reviews & feedback
- Ask for product insight for decisions regarding future products
How to Launch A Product
Here are a few templates for how to launch a product with LandingCube.
Keep in mind, depending on the competitiveness of your niche or target keywords, launching can be quite costly. The cost can drop if you have assets like an email list, past sales data or a Facebook audience to work with.
We advise using Facebook Ads with a JSON Click-to-Messenger campaign for your product launch (unless you’re launching to an email list).

How to Run Promotions for An Existing Product
You can make use of LandingCube campaigns to push existing products, as well as launching new products.
You can run your promotion in a few different ways.
- An evergreen campaign with a mid-level discount (between 20-50% off)
- This allows you to boost sales velocity and keyword rankings, while potentially collecting email addresses or Messenger subscriptions
- A short campaign (~7 days) with a high-value discount (>50%)
- Best used if you need a ranking boost, or you have excess inventory that needs clearing
- An evergreen campaign with no promo code
- Best used if you want to drive traffic from Facebook Ads, but don’t want to discount your product. Using a “Product Page” campaign lets you filter traffic to increase conversion rates on Amazon, as well as collecting data from the Facebook Pixel that will help you create bigger, more targeted audiences.
Run your Facebook campaign in accordance with your existing assets – email list, Messenger list, Pixel data or past customer data.
Use your leads to create 1-2% lookalike audiences, and experiment over the course of your promotion to cut down your cost per click.
How to Use External Traffic to Get More Reviews
Getting in touch with customers outside of Amazon can be a more personal, more effective way of asking for reviews.
The main point you have to take into account when asking for reviews, is that you need to keep any discount given low.
High discounts disqualify a review for the verified purchase tag. The consensus cutoff for this used to be 50% and over, but now it’s more likely to be 30% (this is not known for sure, though).
Amazon has also been taking action towards suspicious reviews as well, including deleting reviews and putting temporary blocks on listings that show unusual reviewing behavior. High-value discounts leading to reviews can play a part in this.
This post has covered a few common ways to use LandingCube to achieve your specific goals, and how you can set up a sales funnel based off your existing assets.
It’s vital to go into any marketing campaign knowing what you want to achieve, so you’re not shooting in the dark.
