Advertising tips for Prime Day
Amazon Prime Day brings plenty of growth opportunities for businesses – including introducing your brand to new customers. Advertising can be a helpful tool in reaching relevant audiences this Prime Day. We’ve compiled several ways that Prime Day advertising can help grow your brand before, during, and after Prime Day.
Engage more shoppers before Prime Day
It’s not too soon to get started advertising before Prime Day. In a recent Kantar survey, we found that 75% of shoppers were likely or highly likely to purchase a product during Prime Day that they’d discovered during the lead-up to Prime Day.1 Brands have the opportunity to reach shoppers who are at various stages of their shopping journeys, and these insights can help you determine which tactics are right for you based on your business objectives.

Showcase your brand and deals
The lead-up to Prime Day and the event itself both provide opportunities for introducing new customers to your brand, and reminding current customers of your Prime-exclusive deals offered. Brands that advertised leading up to and during Prime Day showed a 216% increase in awareness and 214% increase in considerations, compared to the week before.3 During Prime Day, there’s also the opportunity to increase brand loyalty, as well: 69% of survey respondents were likely or highly likely to buy other products from the same brand.4
Start using Amazon Ads products to drive sales volume

Of shoppers surveyed, 68% said they are likely or highly likely to make a purchase from an ad on Amazon during Prime Day.5 Also, advertisers who used Amazons Ads through a better together campaign, combining sponsored ads, plus display (Amazon DSP and/or Sponsored Display), plus Streaming TV Ads, during Prime Day experienced a 19.4% increase in sales compared to the week before.6

And it doesn’t stop during Prime Day: Not only were customers likely to repurchase after Prime Day, they also remained likely or highly likely to rely on ads.8
