Introduction

Sponsored Brand ads are prominently featured within Amazon search results, serving as a powerful tool for brands to amplify their presence, showcase multiple products, and convey brand messaging. These ads typically incorporate essential elements such as a brand logo, custom image, headline, and curated product selection.

Sponsored Brands Video Ads (SB Video) are a type of advertising format on Amazon that enables brands to showcase their products through engaging video content. These ads appear on the search results page, allowing brands to visually demonstrate their product features, benefits, and usage. Once clicked, shoppers will be directed to the Product Detail Page (PDP) of the advertised product in the video.

SB Video Ads offer a dynamic and impactful way for brands to promote their products, tell compelling stories, and increase visibility on Amazon's platform.

Benefits

  • Utilizing Engaging Content:
    Video serves as a highly captivating medium that grabs the attention of potential customers, allowing you to demonstrate your products in action and highlight their features and benefits more effectively compared to static images or text.

  • Enhanced Visibility:
    Video Ads hold a prominent position in Amazon search results, offering heightened visibility and exposure to a broader audience. With its expansive display, it occupies more space than Sponsored Products, enabling you to leverage its bold placement.

  • Product Narration:
    Videos provide a platform for crafting compelling narratives about your products, which can be particularly impactful in conveying brand messaging and showcasing various product use cases.

  • Competitive Edge:
    Embracing video ads can provide your brand with a competitive advantage by securing premium advertising space on Amazon and distinguishing itself from competitors who rely solely on traditional ad formats.

  • Take control of Keyword Harvesting (learn more here).

📕 Not Supported

  • Brand Video or Store Spotlight.

Editing your Goal on Amazon

It's best to manage any necessary modifications or adjustments to Perpetua campaigns directly through the Perpetua dashboard to void our engine overriding the edits you made. Please review the full list here.

However, for SBV4 goals Perpetua will respect the following edits:

  • Editing Campaigns.

  • Editing Ad groups.

  • Editing Ads.

  • Editing Keywords.

The only exception is the goal name: if you change the campaign name from Amazon, the goal name on Perpetua will remain the same.

🚨 Note 🚨
We advise against directly making changes on the Amazon ad console because Perpetua may take up to 24 hours to synchronize with any modifications made there. However, adjustments made within Perpetua should be reflected immediately or within a few minutes. Thus, making changes on the ad console alongside using Perpetua could potentially lead to confusion.
