An easier way to get started on Amazon Marketing Services

Vendors now have a little more help getting started with Amazon Marketing Services (AMS).

Our new feature, AMS Step-by-Step Guidance, walks users through the process of creating an ad campaign. For vendors looking for extra assistance, this interactive guide offers more of a “hands-on” feel than traditional help content. At each step of the ad creation process, users will be provided recommendations without having to ask.

Here’s what vendors can expect out of this new feature:

  • Easy opt-in: This step-by-step experience starts as soon as a user logs in. Simply click “Guide me” to be guided through a campaign for Sponsored Products, Headline Search, or Product Display ads. It’s easy to turn off the instruction at any time for advertisers to progress on their own, and it can be reactivated by using the light bulb icon in the top right corner of the screen.

  • Recommendations at each step: Step-by-Step Guidance offers advice throughout the campaign creation process, so first-timers can get suggestions as they start out—and advertisers of all experience levels can learn best practices.

  • Centralized resources: The help section has expanded into a resource center that includes additional tutorials and recordings of previous webinars and is accessible via the light bulb icon.

  • Extra tips: Additional information pops up when hovering over the question mark icons, letting users learn more about how to get the most out of AMS.

The advice provided in Step-by-Step Guidance was developed by our product experts and includes learnings from the actual experiences of other vendors. The development of this resource is part of our ongoing dedication to make advertising approachable, straightforward, and effective.

Any vendors who might have found AMS intimidating before should find this updated version easier to tackle.
