Amazon Ads offers a suite of performance advertising solutions designed to help you achieve your performance objectives.
Use Sponsored Products to promote your individual products to high-intent shoppers close to the point of purchase. These ads appear on Amazon shopping results and product detail pages of similar products and link directly to your product’s detail page. Sponsored Products is cost per click (CPC), meaning you only pay when shoppers click your ad.
While Sponsored Products connects shoppers directly to individual products, Sponsored Brands allows you to showcase multiple products from your brand together. These ads link shoppers to custom landing pages or Stores where they can discover the rest of your catalog. In addition to placements on shopping results and product detail pages, Sponsored Brands gives you the ability to advertise on prominent placements on top of shopping results. Similar to Sponsored Products, Sponsored Brands is CPC.
Amazon DSP is best for advertisers looking to scale their display advertising with customized creative and audience capabilities. You can engage relevant audiences based on lifestyle, purchase, and media consumption signals with ads that lead back to your Amazon detail pages or your own website. Ads can appear both on Amazon subsidiaries and on leading publishers’ sites through direct inventory from Amazon Publisher Services and third-party exchanges. Pricing for programmatic advertising through Amazon DSP varies depending on format and placement.
Leveraging Amazon’s first-party shopping insights, Sponsored Display can complement your Sponsored Products and Sponsored Brands digital marketing campaigns by helping you reach audiences both on and off Amazon. If shoppers initially show interest in your product or similar products but don’t purchase right away, you can reengage them with display ads off Amazon as they browse third-party websites or social media. These self-service CPC display ads are accessible to any professional seller enrolled in Amazon Brand Registry or vendor who sells products on Amazon.
