What are Streaming TV ads?
Streaming TV ads are typically full-screen, non-skippable video ads that appear before, during, or after streaming content like TV shows and movies. They surface across desktop, mobile, and connected TV environments, but the majority are delivered on TVs.
What are online video ads?
Online video ads reach audiences on Amazon-owned sites and across the web on leading publisher sites. Online video ads appear both in-stream (before, during, and after video content) and out-stream (in non-video environments between text and images) across desktop, mobile, and tablet.
Where will my video ads appear?
Streaming TV ads surface in popular streaming content like exclusive originals on Amazon Freevee, livestreamed entertainment on Twitch, live sports including Thursday Night Football, top TV and network broadcaster apps, and the curated News app on Fire TV. Supply sources vary by locale.
Online video ads reach audiences on Amazon-affiliated sites including IMDb and Twitch. They also appear across the web on leading publisher sites through Amazon Publisher Direct and third-party exchanges.
What are the benefits of video ads?
Viewers today are growing harder to engage through traditional media. When you activate our video ad solutions, you’re meeting your audience where they’re spending most of their time — streaming their favorite movies and shows or browsing and shopping on their favorite online sites. Our video ad solutions offer broad reach across exclusive and premium inventory, first-party audiences powered by billions of Amazon shopping and streaming signals, and trusted measurement solutions to help quantify the impact of your campaigns.
How are my campaign results measured?
Our measurement tools give you more ways to understand the impact of your campaigns. With our first-party reporting metrics, you can dive deep into insights like impressions, unique reach, video completion rate, detail page views, branded searches, and new-to-brand. We also work with 20+ Amazon-supported third-party measurement providers to measure the performance of video ads on and off Amazon.
What if I don’t have any videos for my campaign?
No video ad? No problem? Use our Video Creative Builder with your existing assets to create a video ad for your brand that meets video asset guidelines. Experiment with different products, images, and calls-to-action to discover what resonates with viewers. You can also ask your account executive if you qualify for Video Incentive Program, which provides one-time video asset creation as added value to eligible advertisers who sign a qualifying insertion order. We’ll work with a trusted third-party video production company to create a 30-second video ad that can be used across all Amazon properties.
