Challenges Faced by Current Amazon Sellers
In a recent survey conducted by Amazon in March 2023, it was revealed that a staggering 75% of advertisers struggled with creating successful campaigns due to the intricacies of crafting ad creatives. The digital advertising landscape has seen remarkable advancements driven by data science, analytics, and artificial intelligence over the past two decades.

The Power of Lifestyle Imagery
Imagine having an image of a toaster, a simple product against a plain background. Now, picture that same toaster placed on a beautifully decorated kitchen counter next to a freshly baked croissant. This transformation is what generative AI brings to the table.
