Prestozon is proud to be one of the first Amazon advertising platforms to support the creation of Amazon Sponsored Brand ad campaigns outside of Amazon’s Seller Central and AMS.
We have been testing this feature in partnership with a select group of our Prestozon Preferred Agency Partners, and now are excited to release this feature to all Prestozon users.
This blog post will explore the new feature in Prestozon as well as the benefits of using Sponsored Brands and tips to get the most of them.

The New Sponsored Brands Campaign Creation Feature
Previously the only way to create Amazon Sponsored Brands campaigns was to create them in Amazon’s interface. Today, that changes. Agencies and advertisers will now have the ability to create new Sponsored Brands campaigns via Prestozon’s integration with the Amazon Advertising API. Prestozon is using this API to offer users the ability to create Sponsored Brands campaigns in the Prestozon 1-Click Campaign Setup tool.
It’s a simple change with a big impact. As long as you have a Registered Brand with Amazon, you’ll be able to see the new Sponsored Brands tab in Prestozon’s 1-Click Setup tool, below.
Toggling the SB tab on and completing it will create both Sponsored Products and Sponsored Brands campaigns, as well as a full Rules setup that is optimized for Search Term Isolation. For more background information about how Prestozon 1-Click Campaign Setup works, see this article.
Early Results from Agencies
Prestozon has been beta testing this feature with several close partners, and early responses have been very positive. Tyler Allgaier, CEO of Pitted Labs ad agency, was one of the original beta testers. From the perspective of his agency, “Prestozon’s 1-Click Sponsored Brand Campaign setup could not have come at a better time. Amazon’s hyper-competitive and rapid-paced advertising environment requires agencies like us to quickly and effectively create campaigns that are in line with our client’s marketing initiatives.”
Allgaier shared that the time savings from the new campaign creation tool have been particularly helpful. “We are now able to spend more time focusing on the important high-level strategy instead of “in the trenches” creating campaigns manually.”

Why Run Sponsored Brands Ads?
- What about Amazon Sponsored Brands ads in general – what are the benefits? In discussions with advertisers who run Sponsored Brands ads, we hear that there are solid benefits of using Sponsored Brands campaigns in conjunction with Sponsored Products campaigns. The two ad types serve different purposes, so when used together advertisers can increase their search results for keywords they care about by having additional placements for those keywords. For example, if you are a brand owner, you want to make sure you dominate the results when a customer searches on your brand.
- Sponsored Brands also gives more flexibility of where the buyer lands after clicking the ad than Sponsored Products does. This is because brands can customize the landing experience of shoppers by linking to their product store. Amazon has shared that the ROI when linking to a store vs a product page is 22% higher. Finally, Sponsored Brands campaigns can also be optimized against different objectives, for example ACoS, increasing detail page views, and driving traffic to store page.
