Amazon DSP (Demand Side Platform) enables advertisers to reach new and existing customer audiences both on and off Amazon, driving brand and product awareness throughout the customer journey using Amazon’s exclusive retargeting and data collection methods.
How significant is Amazon DSP? Consider this: Demand Side Platforms have been around for over a decade, yet the relatively young Amazon DSP was the second-most used DSP in 2021, ahead of programmatic advertising household names like The Trade Desk, Adobe, MediaMath, and others.
Marketers have embraced Amazon DSP partly because 74% of consumers begin their product searches on Amazon; Amazon DSP’s full-funnel marketing strategy enablement is another draw. “Amazon’s sophisticated behavioral data, custom audience development, and contextual targeting across Amazon properties and the broader Internet enable brands to refine their advertising for each stage of their customers’ buying journey,” said Claudia Virgilio, Global Vice President of Commerce Partnerships at Skai.
- Advanced audiences powered by Amazon proprietary data (read more about Amazon DSP’s targeting options)
- Unique supply across Amazon’s publisher footprint (i.e., Amazon.com, Twitch, Zappos, etc.)
- Brand safe environments which ensure advertising doesn’t appear next to questionable or concerning content
- Optimized campaigns to maximize your return on investment
