What are Sponsored Brands?

Sponsored Brands are cost-per-click (CPC) ads that feature your brand logo, a custom headline, and multiple products. These ads appear in relevant shopping results and help drive discovery of your brand among customers shopping for similar products.

Where will my Sponsored Brands ads appear?

Your ads may be displayed on top of, alongside, or within shopping results. Ads may appear on both desktop and mobile.

How much does Sponsored Brands cost?

With CPC ads like Sponsored Brands, you bid the maximum amount that you are willing to pay when a shopper clicks an ad for your product. The more competitive your bid, the more likely your ad is to be displayed when it matches a shopping query.

What categories are not eligible for Sponsored Brands?

At this time, adult products, used products, refurbished products, and products in closed categories are not eligible for advertising. For a full list of permitted and prohibited categories review the creative acceptance policies for Sponsored Brands and Sponsored Products.

What results can I expect from Sponsored Brands?

We provide a range of tools and reports that help you analyze campaign performance and measure success. New-to-brand metrics allow you to measure how many first-time customers your campaign drove in the last 12 months. Other reports provide campaign and placement performance, ad clicks, sales, and advertising cost of sales (ACOS) represents your ad spend as a percentage of sales. Once you have launched your campaign, you can view performance via the graphical dashboard or view downloadable reports on the reporting page. Use these reports to identify successful tactics and optimize your campaigns.

What are new-to-brand metrics, and why should I use them?

With new-to-brand metrics, you can measure orders and sales of your products generated from first-time customers of your brand on Amazon. These metrics allow you to track the number of first-time orders for products within your brand, the percentage of total orders that are new-to-brand orders, the total sales of new-to-brand orders, and the percentage of total sales that are new-to-brand sales, all within a 12-month look-back window.

We recommend using new-to-brand metrics to supplement metrics like advertising cost of sales (ACOS) or return on ad spend (ROAS). For example, Sponsored Brands ads help drive brand discovery with shoppers in the discovery stage and help brands reach new customers. Driving first-time purchases can often cost more than driving repeat purchases, so ACOS or ROAS alone would not measure the impact of Sponsored Brands in growing your brand audience.
