Amazon Cut Spending on Google Advertising in Recent Days

yahoo | March 18, 2020

Amazon.com Inc. has slashed the amount of money it spends on Google advertising in recent days, a potential blow to the search giant’s revenue at an already-unstable time. The e-commerce company generally buys Google ads to funnel web shoppers to its online store. But since March 11, Amazon has cut back drastically across nearly all categories, according to data collected by Tinuiti Inc., a marketing agency that handles about $1.5 billion a year in spending for various advertisers. “Amazon has significantly pulled back in Google Shopping and text ads,” said Andy Taylor, Tinuiti’s director of research. In Google keyword auctions, Amazon is still bidding “lightly” against some advertisers, but it has “disappeared as a competitor altogether for others,” he added.“While we don’t comment on individual customers, it’s not unusual for advertisers to adjust their campaigns at any time for any number of reasons,” a Google spokesperson said. An Amazon spokesperson did not return a request for comment.

Zoomd’s Albert AI, Creative Optimization Technology Generates 800% Return on Ad Spend

Zoomd | January 27, 2023

With creative ad optimization subjected to user biases such as preferences for strong headlines, graphics, colors, etc., Albert AI technology, owned by Zoomd, provides genuine creative optimization based on real-time creative performance across goods, advertising, campaigns, and market segments. Even with the recent development of technologies like Chat GPT-4, ad production is likely to be the last aspect of marketing to gain from AI-powered technology. Due to the subjectivity used by individuals while optimizing commercials, the optimization of ad creatives is now well suited for AI technology. An e-commerce business hired Albert AI intending to improve return on ad spend (ROAS) by 500%, a goal Albert's team thought was achievable. Instead, Albert's ROAS increased by 800% a few months after the onboarding process was completed. In subsequent years, the same e-commerce business, now in its fourth year of working with Albert, is still achieving gains in ROAS between 10 and 20%. Albert optimized the ad creative for this e-commerce firm by developing the best-performing advertisements for each target category and ad platform/channel. In addition, its technology makes the most excellent ad possible by picking the finest photos, colors, fonts, and texts to provide the most cost-effective results for the target demographic. Finally, Albert's system was able to decide when to refresh and then modify ads to maximize ROAS. The technology employs AI to generate advertisements that improve campaign performance, including keyword, platform, audience, and device selection and bidding, as well as creative optimization spanning search, display, social, and cross-channel.
