Worried about how your products stand out on Amazon? Are you priced correctly for your competitive set? How can you optimize your advertising and drive more sales? Whether you sell via Seller Central or Vendor Central, an Amazon advertising agency can propel your business forward by managing the heavy lifting of your Amazon ads while you focus on your product portfolio. Here’s what you should look for when choosing the best partner for your business.

Narrow down your search for an Amazon ad agency

There are more than 1900 agencies that manage Amazon advertising. But not all are created equal. To help you narrow your search, Amazon created a partnership directory with agencies that meet the following criteria:


Verified Advertising Partners: Agencies that achieve verified partner status have successfully completed their Amazon Ads Partner Network account setup and have provided Amazon with information about how their business supports advertisers. Consider agencies with a verified badge simply that: verified for legitimacy by Amazon.


Advanced Advertising Partners: This is where agencies step it up. Agencies with advanced partner status have demonstrated product expertise, engagement with Amazon ads, and — most importantly — delivered growth for advertisers over time. Only 8% of all Amazon ad agencies have achieved this status. WBX Commerce is proud to be an Amazon advanced advertising partner.

Vetting the best Amazon ad agency for your 2024 goals

When vetting the best Amazon ad agency for your business needs, approach potential partnerships with clear goals and expectations. Set transparent milestones and ensure similar transparency in the data used by the agency for decision-making. Request to speak with current clients and delve into the agency’s core competencies. Ask about the team’s coverage, accreditation status, and a detailed assessment of how they’ll enhance your product visibility and sales.
