Amazon adds customer acquisition metrics for display, video, Sponsored Brands campaigns
The "new-to-brand" set of metrics are aimed at helping brands understand how well their campaigns convert first-time buyers.
Amazon has introduced new metrics that capture insights on new customers that converted from ad campaigns.
The “new-to-brand” metrics are available for video, display and Sponsored Brands ad campaigns (the ads that showcase several products formerly called headline search ads).
Why you should care
The segment includes ad-converting customers that purchased a brand’s products on Amazon for the first time in the past 12 months. The set of metrics includes new-to-brand purchases, new-to-brand purchase rate and cost per new customer.
Being able to segment and analyze how well — and efficiently — these branding-oriented campaign types convert new customers will give advertisers a clearer view into which formats and channels work best to achieve their acquisition and customer loyalty goals.
More about the news
- The metrics are only available for conversions that occur on Amazon.
