Explore Amazon Ads’ new Sponsored Display in livestreams on Twitch announced at unBoxed 2021
28 October 2021
Whether it’s following along as a gamer fights off a zombie hoard, joining the virtual crowd for a musician’s set or cheering on your favourite athlete, Twitch is a place where 2.5 million users are tuning in at any given moment to watch live content.1 And that audience only continues to grow. In 2020, Twitch saw its user base nearly double and time spent grow by nearly as much.2
“Brands play a vital role on Twitch as they help support our streamers so that they can focus on doing what they love – and it shows through our creator’s passion, which translates into deeper engagement from their viewers,” Twitch’s Head of Sales Sarah Iooss said during Amazon Ads’ annual unBoxed conference.
During unBoxed, which took place 26 October through to 27 October, Amazon Ads revealed a new solution that brands can use to connect with audiences on Twitch.
Sponsored Display in livestreams on Twitch
Sponsored Display ads are self-service, can be created in minutes, and help brands connect with relevant audiences both within and beyond Amazon’s store. Sponsored Display ads already appear on Twitch browse tab and directory pages. Now they will also be seamlessly integrated with Twitch livestreams, creating another option for brands in the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Spain to engage with Twitch’s 30 million average daily visitors in ways that complement their streaming experience.3
