As of March 24, 2021, Sponsored Ads and Brand Stores became available on Amazon.sg. This is big news for not only sellers, vendors and shoppers in Singapore, but also for retailers around the world who are hoping to expand their online businesses internationally.
When building your Amazon advertising strategy, it is important to consider not only how to reach shoppers in the marketplace in which you are based, but also those around the world. The expansion of Amazon advertising and other features to new markets is making it possible for businesses to scale on a global level.
What is now available in the Singapore marketplace?
Sponsored Products and Sponsored Brands are now available for the Singapore Amazon marketplace. This means, vendors and sellers (no matter where they are based), have the ability to advertise their products and brands to shoppers in Singapore.
Sponsored Products – A great way to get started with Amazon Advertising, these cost-per-click (CPC) ads allow you to get your products in front of relevant shoppers. Appearing on search results and product detail pages, Sponsored Products will increase your product visibility on Amazon and the ad creatives are automatically generated with automatic targeting so you can easily use them on marketplaces that use a different language.
Sponsored Brands – Drive discovery of your brand on Amazon with these customizable CPC ads that incorporate your brand logo, a custom headline and feature multiple products, appearing to relevant shoppers. Best when used in conjunction with Sponsored Products, Sponsored Brands help you to stay on the top of shoppers’ minds and increase brand loyalty as they browse products on the Amazon Singapore marketplace.
Brand Stores – Build an immersive brand experience for shoppers in Singapore, helping them connect with and become familiar with your brand and products. A multipage experience with brand and product information all in one place, the Amazon Store allows you to build your own brand destination within the Amazon cosmos. Stores are a great way to introduce your brand story to new shoppers and are especially useful when entering a new marketplace, so shoppers in Singapore can connect with your brand and find your product offerings easily.
These options are powerful when used on their own, but when used strategically in combination, the results are infinite. Sponsored Advertising and Brand Stores are available for Amazon advertisers to bring awareness to their brands and products, something that is particularly useful when entering into a new marketplace where shoppers may otherwise not come into contact with them.
