What is Remarketing?


You’ve finally found them.

The blue suede shoes that you have wanted since you saw someone wearing them in your favorite YouTube video.

It’s time to click that purchase button. 

The phone starts ringing and your inbox fills up with emails. You can finish your purchase later.

But you don’t. 

The next day, while you’re browsing Facebook, you see an advertisement for those shoes you forgot to purchase! Plus you received a discount code for 10% off.

Time to go buy those shoes. 

You’ve been a successful target of remarketing. Not only do you get those groovy shoes, the vendor has made a sale. 

Remarketing 101

Serving up ads or sending follow up emails that alert you to unfinished purchases, are two examples of remarketing. The nature of the internet severely impacts businesses who need to keep a visitor’s attention long enough to complete a sale. 

According to the Baymard Institute, most websites experience a shopping cart abandonment of almost 70%. That’s a lot of potential sales and returning customers that have escaped – and you already know they’re interested in buying! 

By capturing visitor statistics and other metrics, serving up the right remarketing ad isn’t difficult, and when you have created a follow up advertisement or email with a strong call to action which includes a discount, you increase your chances of closing the sale.

There are several different types of remarketing which can help your company capture unfinished purchases and gain new visitors. It’s wise to remember that while not entirely complicated, remarketing requires a familiarity with marketing tactics, technology, website programming, and developing the right type of content.

Three Remarketing Tactics

The first type of remarketing is Standard Remarketing. By using Google Display Network applications and social media websites, relevant advertisements can be served to visitors as they navigate around the internet.

Dynamic Remarketing takes a little more effort – the ads a visitor will see include the actual item they were about to purchase, along with a discount or special offer. Dynamic remarketing packs more of a punch, and increases the chance of bringing a customer back to your website to complete their purchase.

A third solution is email remarketing. By collecting visitor data, you can create an email that targets specific audience members with advertisements and links that will bring them directly to the pages they visited on your site. Success rates for email remarketing are high due to the fact that the person who receives them is already familiar with your brand and service.

In addition to completing sales, remarketing helps increase your brand recognition, indicates to customers that you value their business, and enables you to collect information that will help create impactful and relevant advertising campaigns in the future.
