Marina McManaway:

People are always asking us, “what’s new on the horizon.” So today we’re going to talk about Amazon’s retargeting ad product.

Alice Nuttall:

So just a little bit of background, when did you first become aware of this new launch?

Marina:

Amazon’s been moving pretty aggressively into the advertising space. Last year their business was worth about $1.6b to them, but just recently they’ve actually cancelled all Google shopping ads completely.

Alice:

Yeah and from what I’ve read that’s a massive loss to Google – that was a $50m account. So do you have any idea what this new product is going to look like?

Marina:

Most likely it’s going to be a pay-per-click product so it will be on third party websites, really, a direct competitor with the Google Display Network.

Alice:

And why does Amazon’s new remarketing product matter to marketers?

Marina:

It matters to marketers because Amazon’s currently seen as one of the few viable challengers to the Facebook-Google duopoly.

Alice:

And what should marketers be doing in preparation for this new launch?

Marina:

As an advertiser in Australia, there is a big opportunity for first mover advantage on the Amazon advertising platform. So especially if you’re an e-commerce company, I think Amazon advertising should be a part of your 6 to 12-month plan.
