We all know history repeats itself and the same thing is happening on the Amazon Ads. People are getting to know the potential it has because marketers can now manifest the direct consumer intent and boost the sales. Because on Amazon the product wins, not brands. And within the ecosystem that Amazon has created, the people reviews have major impact on the minds of potential buyer.
This kind of ecosystem favors the small business to come to Amazon and start selling their product without having any operational issues, which was a case half a decade ago.
Amazon Ads favor the small business to grow their business as the ads have great potential to impact minds because consumer comes to the platform having a buying intent. Though the product is in developing state and still figuring out some issues like daily reporting and live ads data, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be growing to become one of the great marketing platforms in coming years.
