New Video Creative Builder now available with Amazon DSP

February 16, 2021 | By Abbas Fazalbhoy, Sr. Product marketing manager

When it comes to video marketing and advertising, it’s important to use compelling creative that brings your brand story to life and resonates with your audiences. To help you achieve this, we’re pleased to announce the launch of Video Creative Builder, a free tool that allows you to quickly and easily create eye-catching video ads or enhance existing creative assets. Combined with Amazon DSP’s capabilities, Video Creative Builder can help you reach the right customers at the right time, with the right message.

Video Creative Builder makes it easy to build eye-catching video ads, without the need for existing video creative assets. The process is quick, easy, free, and does not require any prior production resources and design expertise.

Customize creative to suit your brand objectives

Video Creative Builder offers several ready-to-use customizable templates, so you can go straight from static imagery to a robust video ad, without requiring prior production resources or design expertise. If you already have video creative, this tool makes it easier for you to overlay text or Amazon co-branding such as logos. Video Creative Builder also supports square-shaped video ads that are commonly used on social media, which means you do not need to worry about editing the orientation of the ad to match a new format.

Once you’ve built or enhanced your creative assets, you can easily and frequently edit these videos to add current star ratings, new products and features, or timely promotion updates. Even if your brand does not sell on Amazon, we provide the templates that can help deliver your message with your brand objective in mind.

Deliver customer experiences that resonate

In a recent study, 84% of customers said that the experience a brand provides is as important to them as the products and services it offers.1 With Amazon Ads, you can elevate your brand experience by leveraging our exclusive audiences and first-party insights to deliver relevant video ads to audiences who are likely to be interested in your brand.

We’ve found that creating cohesive customer experiences by adding video ads to display-only campaigns improves results. On average, campaigns combining both formats record a 320% increase in detail page views and a 150% increase in purchase rate, compared to display-only campaigns.2

Test, measure and optimize

Amazon DSP can help you better understand how customers are discovering brands, researching, connecting, and finally purchasing across different touch points. Awareness metrics such as brand lift, and consideration metrics such as click-through rate, help you measure engagement for your brand. For brands that sell on Amazon, we also offer additional metrics, such as detail page view rate and purchase rate, to help you determine how your ad has inspired action for your audiences.

With these tools, you can optimize campaign performance by simultaneously testing various creatives and calls to action to learn which variants resonate best with customers.

It’s easy to get started with video ads, thanks to Video Creative Builder. Reach out to your Amazon Ads executive for more information.
