What is Sponsored Display?

Sponsored Display is all about reaching the right audience. It works in tandem with the existing Sponsored Ads function that enables shoppers to discover your brand. The additional ‘Display’ layer re-engages shoppers who have previously researched your brand so you can reach more potential customers that are likely to buy your products!

Amazon is offering a variety of easy-to-use, customisable tools to help you optimise the messaging of your display campaigns for different audiences. Sponsored Display is available to all professional Amazon traders who are enrolled in the Amazon Brand Registry.

How do Sponsored Display campaigns work?

The beauty of Sponsored Display is that it enables brands to create display ad campaigns that run both on and off Amazon on desktop, mobile sites and apps, depending on the chosen targeting strategy and audiences. As a result, brands can reach customers that viewed advertised or similar products whilst browsing away from Amazon, directing them back to Amazon to make a purchase.

Whilst sponsored products appear within and alongside search results in the Amazon portal, sponsored brands appear at the top of the page, above search results. From the list of products added to your campaign, the Sponsored Display Views strategy also promotes the most relevant ASIN with the highest chance of conversion.

Why you should use Sponsored Display

Amazon’s new advertising solution has the potential to quickly and effectively increase consumer awareness, consideration and conversion for your brand. When you re-engage with shoppers who have previously researched your brand, you can expect to see a click rate increase of up to 46% on ads and a return on investment (ROI) up to 17 times higher! You can also reach up to 10 times more customers who are ready to buy your products than with sponsored ads alone!
