Keep reading to get all the details! 👀

What is Amazon Inspire?

Amazon Inspire is a new shoppable Feed that lets you easily shop Amazon products through photos and video.

Like Instagram product tags, people can discover and purchase products from content made by creators, influencers, and brands.

The Tiktok-style appearance and feel have given Inspire the nickname of the new Amazon TikTok app.

How to use Amazon Inspire?

You can use Amazon Inspire by choosing your interests and scrolling through the Feed, similar to how you would on TikTok or Instagram.

There are over 20 interests that users can choose from, including things like pets, interior design, gaming, men’s style, skincare, and more!

The interests prompt acts almost as an algorithm to personalize each user’s Feed with content they want to see.

Similar to a social media network, you can ‘like’ the content posted by accounts in Inspire.

Businesses can highlight their Amazon storefront items directly in short-form videos and photos, so people can tap on the content and immediately learn more.

Why can’t I use Amazon Inspire?

Some people can’t use Amazon Inspire because it is only available to a few US customers right now.

The new Amazon TikTok app was announced on December 8, 2022—they plan to make it available to more users within the next few months.

So, is Amazon better than TikTok for marketing?

Amazon Inspire is only available to a select few people, so TikTok would still be better for marketing for the time being.
