How to Deliver Precise Audience Targeting for Amazon Advertisers

For enterprise brands and agencies, the quest for precise audience targeting via Amazon DSP has been an ongoing challenge.  
In a sea of potential customers, how do you ensure that your ads reach the right people, at the right time, with the right message? The lack of a reliable solution often leads to wasted resources, missed opportunities, and underwhelming campaign performance.

Here are just three common examples that may sound familiar:

Example 1: Wasting Ad Spend on Irrelevant Audiences

An agency launching a campaign for a luxury fashion brand, targeting high-income individuals interested in luxury goods. Without precise audience targeting, their ads may end up reaching a broad audience that includes budget-conscious shoppers with minimal interest in luxury products. This mismatch leads to wasted ad spend and missed opportunities to engage the right audience.  

Example 2: Overcoming Audience Limitations

A nail care company wants to optimize its Mother’s Day promotion by targeting specific customers from the previous year’s campaign and those interested in nail care. However, without accurate targeting, their ads could get served to audiences uninterested in nail care or those unresponsive to last year’s promotion. This could lead to ineffective advertising, lower returns, and missed opportunities to engage the most likely purchasers.

Example 3: Unlocking Keyword Potential

An automotive company, with an online retail arm for car accessories, wants to optimize their audience reach and re-engagement. However, their inability to create keyword-specific ad campaigns makes it challenging to target consumers searching for specific parts or car models. This prevents them from efficiently reaching potential customers indicated by their keyword searches.

Enter AMC Audiences and DSP Audience Recommendations – Keywords —groundbreaking features from Pacvue, designed specifically for advertising brand managers that need more precise targeting capabilities to reach customers.

AMC Audiences can tackle the dual challenges of wasteful ad spending and audience inefficiencies.
