Amazon Marketing Cloud

Amazon Marketing Cloud (AMC) is a secure, privacy-safe, and cloud-based clean room solution in which advertisers can easily perform analytics and build audiences across pseudonymized signals, including Amazon Ads signals as well as their own inputs.

How does Amazon Marketing Cloud work?

AMC unifies rich signals across Amazon properties, advertiser, and onboarded third-party providers, and enables flexible querying over these signals in a privacy-safe environment. Advertisers can then use custom insights and audiences generated via AMC to optimize campaign tactics, guide marketing execution, and inform business decisions.

What signals are available in Amazon Marketing Cloud?

Advertisers can access hundreds of fields about their Amazon Ads campaigns via Amazon Marketing Cloud including ad-attributed impressions, clicks, and conversions. Advertisers can also choose to upload their own pseudonymous inputs into a dedicated Amazon Marketing Cloud clean room environment and join the inputs with Amazon Ads campaign signals for analysis.

How does Amazon Marketing Cloud protect my information?

Amazon Marketing Cloud prioritizes privacy and security by design. AMC only accepts pseudonymized inputs, and all information in your AMC instance is handled in strict accordance with Amazon’s privacy policies. You can only access aggregated and anonymous outputs from AMC. The information you choose to upload stays within your dedicated AMC instance, and cannot be exported or accessed by Amazon.

How is Amazon Marketing Cloud reporting different from Amazon DSP reporting?

Amazon Marketing Cloud can report on cross-channel media performance and complement the reporting capabilities available in Amazon DSP. AMC reports are outputs of SQL query-based analysis. The results are delivered via a downloadable CSV file and/or sent to your Amazon Web Services S3 bucket. Amazon DSP reporting contains pre-aggregated standard metrics, delivered via Amazon DSP console on-demand or API, and can report on performance of your media purchase and operations in Amazon DSP.

When should I use Amazon Marketing Cloud to build custom audiences?

AMC allows advertisers to expand and customize audience options on top of using the Amazon DSP audiences. Advertisers can use the cross-source and cross-media signals, such as ad engagement signals and advertisers’ own signals, over a lookback window of up to 12.5 months, to build audiences in AMC. Users have control over how to construct custom queries, and the flexibility to generate audiences that best meet their advertising needs and business goals.

We recommend advertisers to start with exploring Amazon DSP audience options first, and use AMC to build custom audiences that address more sophisticated use cases involving multi-channel advertising, ad engagement considerations, detailed segmentation, or other bespoke use cases.

How is attribution using Amazon Marketing Cloud different from Amazon Attribution?

Amazon Marketing Cloud's custom attribution focuses on assessing Amazon Ads campaign performance, while Amazon Attribution measures non-Amazon media’s effectiveness in driving on-Amazon engagement. We view these solutions as complementary and recommend using the two together for a more comprehensive view of marketing attribution.
