Amazon Publisher Cloud is the first and only clean room solution that enables a publisher to analyze its first-party signals with Amazon Ads insights to create deals optimized for reach. Publisher deals are made available for activation in Amazon DSP through a single, streamlined workflow. For example, a publisher can understand how its contextual signals index against Amazon Ads audiences that are in-market for products, such as pet food or cookware, and package a deal for a brand that wants to reach those in-market customers. Amazon Publisher Cloud–based programmatic deals are available with beta launch partners NBCUniversal, DirecTV, Dotdash Meredith, TelevisaUnivision, Fandom, and other premium publishers.
“By analyzing our first-party signals with Amazon Ads audience insights through Amazon Publisher Cloud, we’re able to map intent-to-buy signals to our more than 1.5 million articles across Dotdash Meredith, making the content you read a stronger and more durable predictor of what you are likely to buy than any cookie signal,” said Dr. Jon Roberts, chief innovation officer at Dotdash Meredith. “We’re excited to deepen the collaboration with Amazon Publisher Services and build a robust future that unlocks previously unaddressable audiences, drives advertiser performance, and enhances the consumer experience.”
In the closed beta period, Amazon activated an Amazon Prime campaign with NBCUniversal via Amazon DSP that reached more than 3.5x the desired audience compared to unoptimized campaigns.
“Our expanded partnership with Amazon Publisher Services is a demonstration of how NBCUniversal is committed to using data to understand what resonates with our audiences and providing them with more relevant advertising experiences,” said Ryan McConville, EVP of advertising platforms and operations at NBCUniversal. “Our collaboration enabled us to deliver significantly more effective advertising, specifically by reaching in-market viewers at scale, all in a privacy-minded way. The performance of this initial work shows what’s possible when we have rich insights into our viewers and package our media accordingly.”
