As a seller or vendor on Amazon, you know that connecting with customers across their shopping journey is complex. Customers take an average of 10 detailed page views before making a purchase, and it can take 5-6 days between initial browsing and purchase. That's where Sponsored Display comes in. Sponsored Display is a self-service display advertising solution that helps grow your business by reaching relevant shoppers.
There are three types of placements for Sponsored Display ads: a product detail page at the top and highly visible, and one below the buy box, just below the description of the product. Similar placements are available on both desktop and mobile, and the ads can help increase coverage on product detail and search pages.
Sponsored Display offers two targeting models: cost per click and viewable cost per 1000 impressions. The minimum bid is 1, which enables advertisers to target customers across their purchase journey. Creatives are autogenerated along with pricing, rating, and placements. However, advertisers can customize creatives with unique headlines highlighting unique selling propositions to engage relevant shoppers.
Desktop and mobile options are available on the homepage, and it is very difficult to ignore a homepage ad. Creative placements on the desktop include the top, below the buy box, below the description, and there are option to put the sponsored display on the left and bottom.
