How advertisers can use Sponsored Display

If you've considered display advertising in the past but needed more time, investment, or resources to get started, Sponsored Display is a simple, easy-to-use option that doesn't require a large budget or the ability to design your own ad creatives.

Sponsored Display ads are also a great complement for advertisers who are already using display advertising. For example, if you promote your best-selling products with a DSP, but are looking for a fast and flexible way to advertise the rest of your product portfolio, Sponsored Display ads can be your solution.

64% of shoppers use multiple channels to make a single purchase.1 Sponsored Display ads can help increase your presence in multiple channels to keep your brand and products top of mind for shoppers looking to buy.

FAQs

Where will my Sponsored Display ads appear?

Your ads may appear both on and off Amazon on desktop, mobile sites, and apps based on the audiences or product targeting strategy you choose.

How much does Sponsored Display advertising cost?

Sponsored Display ads are purchased on a cost-per-click (CPC) basis. There is no minimum ad investment required. Advertisers choose their daily bid and budget. Bids automatically adjust based on likelihood of conversion, while still allowing you to change your bid or pause your campaign.

Do I need to add keywords to my Sponsored Display campaign?

No. Sponsored Display uses browsing and buying signals to automatically reach audiences who may be interested in your promoted product. With views targeting, Sponsored Display also dynamically promotes the most relevant product that has the highest chance of conversion from the list of products you add to your campaign.

Do I need to create my own ad creative?

No. Ad creatives are automatically generated and include a product image, pricing, deals and savings badging, star rating, and Shop now button that links back to your product detail page.

How are my campaign results measured?

Advertisers can use the same familiar campaign metrics available for sponsored ads, including ACOS (advertising cost of sale), orders, detail page views, and glance views. Advertisers will soon see additional Amazon Advertising display metrics.

What is the difference between Sponsored Display and Amazon DSP?

Sponsored Display is a self-service advertising product where ad creative is generated automatically and individual campaigns can be launched quickly. Sponsored Display ads are purchased on a cost-per-click (CPC) basis. Amazon DSP is a demand-side platform that allows advertisers to programmatically buy ads at scale. Pricing for display ads purchased through Amazon DSP vary by format and placement.

What is the difference between Sponsored Display, Sponsored Brands, and Sponsored Products?

All three products are self-service advertising solutions. Sponsored Display ads appear in different locations and differ from Sponsored Brands and Sponsored Products by reaching audiences on and off Amazon based on a variety of shopping signals.
