What is 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 across pseudonymized signals, including Amazon Ads signals as well as their own inputs.
Built on Amazon Web Services (AWS), AMC can help advertisers with campaign measurement, audience analysis, media optimization, and more.
Structure custom queries to explore unique measurement questions and address top business priorities. Use our instructional queries to build queries faster.
Conduct analysis with signals across video, audio, display, and search to gain a holistic and in-depth understanding of the customer journey.
AMC only accepts pseudonymized information. All information in an advertiser’s AMC instance is handled in strict accordance with Amazon’s privacy policies, and your own signals cannot be exported or accessed by Amazon. Advertisers can only access aggregated, anonymous outputs from AMC.
This learning path will provide you with an overview of Amazon Marketing Cloud, tips to get started, and best practices to build the insights that deliver results.

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.
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.
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.
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.
