Sponsored Brands ads feature rich creatives and are often used to share brand stories. These ads can be in various formats, including banner ads, video ads, or ads with logo and product.

Here's how it works

Step 1

Log in to Seller Central (or sign up if you’re a new seller)

On Seller Central, click the ‘Advertising’ tab and follow the prompt to get started. Choose your campaign type and follow the steps to create your campaign. If you want to set up a Store, click the ‘Stores’ tab and follow the steps to build your first page.

Step 2

Create your campaign

Creating a campaign can take as little as 5 minutes. To create a Sponsored Products campaign, pick the products you want to advertise, choose between automatic and manual targeting and decide how much you want to pay per click.

For a Sponsored Brands ad, choose at least 3 products you want to advertise, add your logo and a custom headline, and decide which keywords to target and how much you want to spend.

For Stores, use our pre-built templates, drag-and-drop tiles, and dynamic widgets to create your customized Store for free. For Sponsored Display, select your audience, set your bid and daily budget, choose your products to advertise, and create your campaign.

Step 3

Reach more shoppers

Sponsored Products launch immediately, while Sponsored Brands, Sponsored Display, and Stores undergo a moderation review. Based on relevance and bid, ads are shown to customers in high-visibility placements within shopping results and on product detail pages. When shoppers click your Sponsored Products or Sponsored Display ads, they’re taken to your product detail page. Your Sponsored Brands ad will take shoppers to your Store or a custom landing page that displays your products.

With Sponsored Display, you also have the option to show your ads off Amazon and reach shoppers who viewed the detail pages of products sold by your brand, encouraging them to come back to those pages.

Step 4

Control your costs

Most sponsored ads are cost-per-click solutions, meaning Amazon charges for the number of clicks you receive on your ads. You choose how much you want to spend for a click, and set a budget for the maximum amount you are willing to spend on your ads in a day.

Step 5

Measure success

You will be able to track your impressions, clicks, click-through-rate, new-to-brand customers, traffic to your Store, advertising spend, and more. These insights will help you monitor performance and optimize your campaigns.
