According to data from YouGov BrandIndex - which monitors consumer perceptions toward brands daily – Amazon Prime, Red Lobster and Cottonelle registered the highest spikes in Ad Awareness in the US for the month of July 2022. Ad Awareness asks consumers if they have seen an advertisement for the brand in the past two weeks, and the difference between low and high scores for the month determine our Advertisers of the Month.

YouGov's monthly analysis indicates that Amazon Prize recorded a rise of 7.0 points in its Ad Awareness score, the highest for the month. It saw a jump from 35.6% on June 30 to 42.6% on July 24. The two-day Amazon Prime Day event held on July 12 and 13 this year was concluded by the launch of ‘Spend Less on Your Kids’, Amazon's latest back-to-school campaign.

In second place, Red Lobster saw an improvement in its Ad Awareness score of 6.1 percentage points. Its score rose from a minimum of 13.7% on June 26 to a maximum of 19.8% on July 22. The American casual dining restaurant chain recently invited customers to join them for ‘Seafood Summerfest’ which also introduces its new line of adult beverages.
