There can be no changes made when your Study is already approved. Advertisers can check the status of the Study in Studies dashboard. Also, if your Study is denied, you can see why it couldn’t be approved in the same dashboard. 

Once the survey is over, you can see the result bar charts, which represent the answers to each of your questions. Each graph has two bars: the control group bar and the ones exposed to your ads―the ad-exposed group bar.

How Can Amazon Brand Lift Study Help to Elevate Your Brand and DSP Ads?

Amazon Brand Lift is an insightful and privacy-safe tool powered by Amazon Shopper Panel, an invitation-only program. The participants of this program get monthly awards because of spending their time and answering the questions of the Studies. Such a system strongly increases the chances of getting more responses and that surveys will be taken seriously.

The objectives to the questions you choose guarantee systematized responses that will be put in order. On this basis, advertisers can count the percentage of respondents who, for example, don’t know about your brand yet. The objectives you can choose are Awareness, Intent, Preference, Favorability, Attitudes, etc. 

Because of concrete measurements, brands get after the survey. Advertisers can clearly see what has to be changed in their advertising campaigns. How many respondents know about your brand already? If the percentage is low, that might mean your ads are irrelevant or not catchy enough.
