A new report from Feedvisor of more than 1,000 U.S. brands shows an increased uptake of Amazon advertising amongst the cohort: 73% of respondents now advertise on Amazon, up from 57% last year. It also confirmed why Amazon is more widely considered a challenger to the incumbent digital advertising platforms, Google and Facebook, particularly for brands selling physical products.

1. Amazon drives greater ROI than Google and Facebook
A majority of brands selling on Amazon (59%) said that the platform generates their highest return on media spend, followed by Google (22%) and paid social (17%).

The respondents to this survey were leaders from U.S. retail brands with at least 10 employees (55% had over 500 employees) and more than $10 million in annual revenue.
