What is Amazon Advertising?

Amazon Advertising is an ad platform similar to Google Ads. Like Google the Amazon advertising model offers PPC bidding and a selection of ad types.

However Amazon advertising holds one big advantage over Google. Its users have greater purchase intent. This means Amazon ads are more likely to generate sales.

Amazon is best known for its retail media advertising and this accounts for around three quarters of retailers' ad spend. However its demand-side platform also allows brands to programmatically purchase display audio and over-the-top video ads across Amazon's network - even if they don't sell products on the Amazon marketplace.
