Earn Trust

  • Understand everyone's motivation, not just their behavior. This applies to customers, partner teams, leadership, clients, and yourself

  • Build relationships and align efforts with internal business partners: sales, campaign management, custom, design technology, product

  • Communicate early, often, and concisely

Learn and Be Curious

  • Amazon moves fast. Keep up to date on product and program developments, both within and outside Amazon Advertising

  • Follow the culture of advertising outside of Amazon to quickly identify new opportunities for Amazon Advertising to develop product/program solutions

  • Know the tools (research, tech, and measurement) that power the digital advertising marketplace both on- and off-Amazon

Dive Deep

  • Use data to develop hypotheses about why certain customer behaviors exist. Use those to generate powerful insights that drive your campaign ideas

  • Learn the potential (and limitations) of the Amazon Advertising toolset. If gaps exist, fill them

  • Understand the metrics that measure the success of your campaigns, and the levers that affect them

Invent and Simplify

  • Develop campaign ideas from the bottom up, not top down. Think: solutions first, not stunts

  • Create campaigns that balance advertiser goals (KPIs) with customer goals (frictionless commerce)

  • Participate in the development of solutions that help customers make better, faster purchase decisions on Amazon

Think Big

  • Create SMART goals that deliver against team-wide objectives. Determine the priorities and prescribe the processes needed to achieve these goals

  • Don't just make advertising; create work that has an impact, and which elevates Amazon and our advertisers to being a part of culture

  • Develop and foster ideas that are novel-and which are uniquely Amazonian

Insist on the Highest Standards & Be Customer Obsessed

  • Make work that matters by putting yourself in the customer's shoes; if you wouldn't read/watch/use/share your campaign, they won't either

  • Ensure flawless execution, from exquisite design, to on-time, error-free delivery

  • Make every client meeting the best meeting of their day

Take Ownership

  • From concept to execution, know the tools, steps, and policies of the products you deploy

  • Solve problems when you can, only escalate when you can't
