George Meressa, the founder of the paid-advertising agency Clear Ads Ltd., recently discussed the 10 features found on Amazon DSP that Sponsored Ads lack. “Amazon DSP and Sponsored Ads are both integral parts of Amazon’s advertising capabilities, but without doubt, there are some areas where Amazon DSP is miles ahead,” explains Meressa. Although Sponsored Ads offers a cost-effective solution for professional sellers to boost visibility and sales on Amazon, the Amazon Demand Side Platform (DSP) brings a unique and valuable set of strengths to the table. Meressa highlights the following Amazon DSP features:
Overlap reports – find out what audiences should be included within Amazon Advertising activities and extend campaign reach with overlapping audiences.
Strong remarketing – provides a greater ability to regain the interest of prospects who have interacted with products without purchase, boosts conversion rates and helps develop stronger bonds with prospective customers.
Advertise away from Amazon – promote items on a variety of trusted affiliated websites, each of which gives a much better chance of catching target audiences.
Video advertising – using video content not only on Amazon itself but on IMDb and a range of other trusted websites, alongside Prime video streaming.
Amazon DSP Reporting Center – provides an in-depth insight on add-to-carts, sales, engagement sales made through new to brand, brand store engagement and traffic.
Target by postcode or location – display ads in selected areas to ensure ads match each target audience.
Segment your campaigns – provides greater clarity and information about the activities undertaken and control where ads appear.
Scheduling ads for set times – gives greater levels of control and allows users to boost activities during those times when ads are more frequent.
Targeting by prior purchase behavior – allows for more focused and comprehensive advertising activities and reaching new audiences.
Greater data leverage – use shopping transaction data to target customers based on prior behavior and purchase intent.
Who can use Amazon DSP
Amazon DSP is available to both advertisers who sell products on Amazon and those who do not.
Self-service and managed-service options are available. Self-service customers are in full control of their campaigns. The managed-service option is designed for companies that want access to Amazon DSP inventory, with consultative service, or for those with limited programmatic advertising experience. The managed-service option typically requires a minimum spend of $35,000 USD (minimum may vary per country)
How advertisers can use Amazon DSP
Amazon DSP is best suited to advertisers who want to programmatically buy display, video, and audio ads at scale.
You can use Amazon DSP to support a wide variety of advertising goals. For example, for audiences that have already visited your product page, you can remarket to them on Amazon, where they are likely to be in the mindset to purchase. Or, if your goal is to drive brand awareness and expand your audience, then you could reach new customers off-site with a video that introduces your brand and top products
Amazon DSP case study
The Honest Company used Amazon DSP as part of its full-funnel advertising strategy with Amazon Advertising. With Amazon DSP, the brand was able to reach exclusive Amazon audiences on Amazon-owned sites and apps, as well as on third-party sites and apps.
