Amazon’s customer-centric approach has made it the daily destination for customers to get their retail fix. This popularity also attracts millions of sellers eager to stake their claim in ecommerce.

Then suddenly, standing out amidst this competition is now your biggest challenge.

If you're looking to capture customer attention and increase sales, Sponsored Display might be the solution you need.

How to launch the most effective Sponsored Display ads yet

Sponsored Display is a powerful tool designed to boost your visibility and sales. However, like other tools, its magic will only work if you use it effectively. 🪄

Amazon shares the top 10 tips you can follow to make your campaigns shine brighter:

  • Run audience campaigns and product targeting to give your brand a serious boost in sales and reach.
  • Add over 10 ASINs to each campaign to enter more auctions. This increases the chances of your campaign being shown and ensures relevance by offering a wider selection of products.
  • If unsure which product to advertise, opt for proven performers from your other campaigns; they’re likely to perform well in this type of campaign too. 🏆
  • Don’t forget to promote newly launched products or those with low visibility using product targeting and audience campaigns.
  • Highlight products on deals with automated badges to attract more clicks and boost sales.
  • Take advantage of product targeting suggestions to optimize your ad campaigns effectively.
  • Cross-sell your products to customers already engaged with your brand using product targeting.
  • Target complementary products to capture the interest of undecided shoppers.
  • Engage with a broader audience by targeting entire relevant categories for your products.
  • Refine category targeting by specific attributes, such as brand, price range, and product reviews, to optimize your campaigns. 

☑️ Bonus tip: Review the products you’re advertising. Remember, the types and categories of products play a key role in ensuring you get the best results.
