Amazon Advertising can be highly effective in helping vendors and sellers stand out in a crowded marketplace and boost revenue.

Here’s what you need to know about Amazon Advertising:
What is Amazon Advertising?

How to use Amazon Advertising
The advertising solutions that work best for you will depend on your campaign objectives, industry, and budget.
Some of Amazon’s advertising products — such as Sponsored Display, Sponsored Products, Sponsored Brands, and Stores — are self-service. Others are run through Amazon’s DSP (demand-side platform). According to Amazon, those ads “can be managed independently or with an Amazon Advertising account executive.”
To successfully manage Amazon ads, a marketer needs experience in search ads, shopping ads, and CPC models. Knowing what to optimize is critical to getting the results you want within your advertising budget.
How much is Amazon Advertising minimum spend?
Your minimum spend for Amazon Advertising can vary widely depending on the advertising solutions you use and how those solutions are priced. Sponsored options, for example, are cost-per-click (CPC), while “display ad and video ad campaigns can vary depending on format and placement,” according to Amazon.
In addition to ad spend, you may also pay someone to manage your Amazon Advertising campaigns. Most PPC agencies charge a one-time setup fee to create and/or configure the accounts on your chosen platform(s).
Ongoing management is usually based on a percentage of ad spend, but can also be a set fee, depending on the type of work being done. At Pure Visibility, we pride ourselves on transparent pricing, and our base price starts at $2500 per month.
