Today, Amazon is the single largest online shopping platform in the United States. With 1.87 billion users visiting the site every month, Amazon isn’t just leading the way in e-commerce, it is completely dominating the market. Combine the average monthly traffic of the platform’s top three competitors, and they don’t even come close to competing with Amazon Advertising.
Amazon now has more than 101 million Prime subscribers in the United States – equating to nearly one-third of the country’s population! And that’s just Amazon Prime users. Millions of additional consumers visit the site every day, ready and willing to make a purchase.
With so many shoppers flocking to the platform, Amazon is a treasure trove of valuable information about consumer shopping habits and demographics. All of this data is a dream for advertisers. In fact, Amazon is now the expected to increase by 30% in 2019 while Google and Facebook are expected to remain stagnant, if not decrease through the year.
But why are marketers funneling their ad dollars away from Facebook and Google and investing in Amazon advertising instead? To start, users come to Amazon not to search or connect with friends and family, but with the intent to buy.
Additionally, Amazon ads often don’t feel like ads at all. PPC ads often blend in with the other products in the organic search results, creating a more seamless and less intrusive experience for shoppers – and more clicks and conversions for marketers.
If you are an Amazon seller, advertising is the best way for you to reach the right customer at the right time. The competition is fiercer than ever before, and you can no longer rely on organic search results to get your product in front of your target shoppers.
Amazon offers a variety of advertising products to help both vendors and sellers grow their business and expand their reach. Whether you are new to Amazon advertising or want to optimize your existing campaigns, our Amazon consultants are here to help you get the most bang for your advertising buck.
In an effort to streamline its advertising services and create a more unified brand, Amazon recently absorbed its Amazon Media Group (AMG), Amazon Marketing Services (AMS) and Amazon Advertising Platform (AAP) into a single Amazon Advertising program. This simplified program is now home to all of Amazon’s advertising tools, including:
Pay-per-click (PPC) ads are the bread and butter of Amazon advertising. These fundamental ad types are targeted to shopper search terms or products and boost the visibility of your products and brand within Amazon search results and product pages.
Sponsored Products Ads advertise individual product listings to shoppers as they browse search results and other product detail pages. All sellers across Vendor Central and Seller Central are eligible to run Sponsored Products Ads.
Sponsored Brands Ads promote your brand by featuring three of your products within a single ad. These ad types are limited to Amazon Vendors and Brand Registered sellers within Seller Central.
Product Display Ads intercept consumers as they browse a competitor’s product and redirect to the advertiser’s listing. Currently, product display ads are available only to sellers within Vendor Central.
If you are enrolled in Vendor Central or the Amazon Brand Registry, you are eligible to set up an Amazon Storefront at no additional cost to you. Storefront allows you to create a customized, multi-page digital store where you can promote your brand and products and optimize your advertising campaigns.
Our team of graphic designers, copywriters and Amazon specialists will work together to create compelling content and get your Storefront up and running quickly. Once your site is live, we will monitor page views, daily visitors and sales generated from your Storefront to assess your site’s performance and identify opportunities for optimization.
Video advertising is a great way to highlight your brand story and demonstrate your products or services on Amazon’s websites, mobile apps and Fire tablet wake screen. Unlike Amazon Storefront and PPC ads, video ads present a unique opportunity for Amazon sellers and outside businesses to showcase their products not only on Amazon, but across the brand’s other owned properties, as well. Our team will purchase and manage your video ads through Amazon’s demand-side platform (DSP) and continuously monitor the performance of your videos throughout the campaign.
Amazon DSP is an advertiser’s one-stop-shop for programmatic display and video ad buys. The tool opens up Amazon’s advertising offerings to sellers and audiences outside of the Amazon marketplace. Now, current Amazon sellers have the opportunity to reach new consumers through Amazon-owned sites and apps, like IMDb, while non-Amazon sellers can tap into the program’s sought-after user base.

Your ad campaign, much like Amazon itself, is a dynamic ecosystem that must constantly adapt and evolve to achieve optimal results. As your campaign runs, we will gather data on impressions, clicks, ACoS and other KPIs to measure ad performance and optimize when necessary.
We will regularly add and remove keywords, regulate your bids and adjust your campaign types to meet your ad objectives at the lowest cost to you. As we optimize your campaigns, we will keep you up-to-date on your ad performance and remain transparent about how we are managing your account.
Amazon’s ad structure makes it easy for companies of any size to advertise on a budget. With PPC advertising, you set your own budget, customize your own bids and only pay when someone clicks on your ad.
Better yet, we can adjust your bids and budget at any time. This makes it easy to cut costs during leaner months and ramp up your advertising efforts during key shopping periods, like Amazon Prime Day and the holiday season.
We understand that not every Amazon seller has the need, or the budget, to run long-term advertising campaigns. That’s why offer flexible, short-term and seasonal ad options. This can be a great alternative for sellers who want to test the waters of Amazon advertising, support a new product launch or drive additional traffic to their listings during key time periods. Talk to one of our Amazon consultants to discuss your ad options.
