Amazon Ads: Boost Your Sales Today!
Welcome to our intro to Amazon Ads services! Amazon sellers use a variety of advertising tools to help them reach more customers. Some use sponsored products and sponsor brands campaigns, which appear in Amazon search results and feature products and brands. Others use sponsored display campaigns, which appear both in and beyond the Amazon store. These ads feature products a customer with various browsing behaviors has shown interest in. Sellers also use other ads services like our demand side platform or DSP, video and audio ads, and custom advertising solutions. Collectively, these services place campaigns in channels ranging from streaming TV content and broadcast apps to Amazon Music. Let's review and compare Amazon Ads services.
If you visited the Amazon store, you've probably seen a sponsored products ad. These campaigns feature a single product and appear in alongside and above customer search results. They also appear on relevant product detail pages. Sponsored products ads are available to professional sellers and are pay per click or PPC, meaning you only pay when a customer actually clicks your ad. When they click it, the customer will be taken to an individual product detail page. You have control over your total budget for sponsored products and can choose the amount you'd like to spend per click by setting a bid for your ad. That bid, in combination with your ad's relevance to a customer, determines how your ad is ranked with other sellers' ads as well as when it's displayed. When you create a sponsored products campaign, you can let Amazon automatically position ads based on relevant keywords and similar products, or you can manually select the type of keyword matching you'd like to use for a campaign.
If you're a professional seller who enrolled a brand in Amazon Brand Registry, you also have access to sponsored brands campaigns. Other professional sellers verified as internal to a registered brand and resellers authorized by a registered brand also have access to this service. Sponsor brands ads appear in the Amazon store and can feature up to three products within a brand, as well as the brand's logo and headline. They appear prominently above, alongside, and below search results and in other locations in the Amazon store. You can also create a sponsored brands campaign with an auto-playing video that features a single product like sponsored products ads. Sponsor brands ads are PPC. When a customer clicks a product image or video in your ad, it takes them to an individual product detail page. When they click the brand's logo or headline, it takes them to the brand store or a custom landing page designated by the campaign's creator. If you aren't yet familiar with brand stores, they're dedicated digital spaces within the greater Amazon store. Registered brands use stores to group their product listings, highlight their value, and tell their brand story. They require no coding and can be a quick and easy way to design an immersive experience for customers.
Each seller who's eligible to create a sponsored brands ad also has access to Amazon Ads sponsored display service. These campaigns can appear both in and beyond the Amazon store after a customer has viewed a product detail page or if their other browsing behaviors show that they're interested in a product. Sponsored display ads feature a single product and may sometimes feature a logo and headline. They can surface on desktops and mobile devices. Sponsored display ads can be PPC like sponsored products and sponsored brands, or pricing can be VCPM, which is a cost per thousand viewable impressions basis. When a customer clicks the shop now button in your sponsor display ad, it takes them to an individual product page. For budgeting and bidding, sponsored display ads work similarly to sponsored products and sponsored brands. Unlike these other two ad types, however, sponsored display uses product or audience information for positioning.
In addition to our three sponsor campaign types, we offer a variety of other advertising services. Amazon DSP is our demand side platform, which allows advertisers to reach audiences programmatically across the internet. It's available to Amazon sellers as well as advertisers who don't sell in the Amazon store. With Amazon DSP, you can purchase display, video, and audio ads, which are then programmatically delivered across the Amazon store and through Amazon subsidiaries like IMDb. Pricing for Amazon DSP ads varies by format and placement. You have the option to self-serve with no management fees, or you can use our managed service option, which typically requires a minimum spend.
Amazon Video Ads:
If you're a brand interested in running video ads, Amazon Ads offers two types: streaming TV ads and online video ads. Amazon streaming TV ads appear alongside content on connected TVs, publisher channels and networks, IMDb, and IMDb TV. Online video ads appear in and beyond the Amazon store in both in-stream and out-stream formats. They surface on desktop, mobile, and tablet devices and in feeds, articles, banners, and interstitial videos. Brands can use both streaming TV ads and online video ads, whether or not they sell in the Amazon store. Pricing for video ads varies by format and placement.
Amazon Audio Ads:
If you're interested in reaching customers during their screen-free moments, audio ads can help them listen to your ad content. Amazon audio ads last 10 to 30 seconds and play in the breaks between songs on Amazon Music's free, ad-supported tier. Amazon Music plays across Alexa-enabled devices like Echo and Fire TV and on mobile and desktop. Brands can use audio ads whether or not they sell in the Amazon store. Music pricing occurs on a cost per thousand impressions basis or CPM, and audio ads typically require a minimum spend.
Custom Advertising Solutions:
Finally, if you're interested in developing an innovative campaign in a form outside our pre-existing ad services, Amazon Ads offers custom advertising solutions. Brands collaborate with the Amazon custom advertising team to create unique campaigns that appear on home page takeovers, Fire TV, and customized destination pages. Or they can collaborate on non-digital formats like on-box or in-store ads. Brands can use custom advertising solutions whether or not they sell in the Amazon store. Pricing varies, and ads may require a minimum spend.

Why Amazon is building its advertising business
Amazon's ad-supported streaming video content now reaches over 120 million monthly users, up from 20 million in January 2020, due in part to Twitch, a video game streaming platform that Amazon owns. In its earnings report, Amazon reported 77% revenue growth, reaching nearly $7 billion in its ad unit, which is about seven times Twitter's quarterly revenue. Walmart and Target are also investing in their own ad businesses, with Walmart projected to generate over $1.5 billion in e-commerce channel ad revenue this year. While Google and Facebook are investing in their own marketplaces to learn more about what people want to buy, Amazon's ad business is well-positioned to continue growing, especially with Apple's new operating system change prompting people to opt-out of ad targeting. Twitter's acquisition of Scroll shows their diversification away from reliance on advertising to subscription services, like their newsletter and super follow feature. However, companies with scale, like Amazon, Facebook, and Alphabet, have the biggest advantage in the market. As a result, analysts are starting to wonder if Twitter will have a hard time hitting their optimistic growth numbers when competing against these behemoths.
