Visuals are incredibly vital in the advertising space. Did you know that, on average, people remember only 20% of what they read and 10% of what they hear compared to 80% of what they see.
Amazon Sponsored Display has launched an option to use custom product images in your campaign. You can now choose between leveraging an automatically generated image or a custom product image in your Amazon Sponsored Display creative. Sponsored Display’s default creative automatically uses product imagery from an advertised product’s detail page and supports a white background. Custom product images will allow you to now upload your own product images, including those with non-white background colors, to help convey your brand and product story.
What are the Features of Custom Product Images Creative?
Custom product image creative helps you tell your story to shoppers in your own visual language. This complements Sponsored Display’s targeting and measurement capabilities, enabling you to create product awareness or drive traffic to your pages with Amazon banner ads that may serve on the Amazon homepage, Amazon product detail pages, or off-Amazon.
Sponsored Display ads’ default creative automatically uses product imagery from an advertised product detail page and only supports a white background. On the other hand, the custom product option allows you to upload your own pictures, including the ones with bespoke background colors and art direction, to help you convey your brand and product story effectively.
One Image for All Creative Sizes
When using a custom creative, your ad can still serve in up to 12,000 different size variations on and off Amazon. You only need to upload 1 rectangular image, which you can also crop into a second square image.
Reuse Across Sponsored Ads
You can also apply the custom creative you used for other sponsored ads programs to the Sponsored Display custom image creatives and vice versa. Notably, the image will still be reviewed against moderation policies for Amazon Sponsored Display Ads.
What are the Advantages of Custom Product Image Creatives?
You can now tell your brand’s story while driving performance. Custom images can help tell your story while serving ads on or off Amazon in your own visual language. You still get an advantage from existing elements in the creative that helps in driving performance, such as star rating, product titles, pricing, and a “Shop Now” call to action.
Create product awareness
When you want to advertise to audiences unfamiliar with your product, custom creatives can help shoppers learn about your brand and product story.
