The Basics of Retargeting Ads
It’s a type of digital advertisement that allows your visitors to see your targeted ads when they’re on other websites. But for it to work, the visitors must first visit your site. As such, all your previous audiences will see your targeted display ads as they browse the web.
So, whether they’re reading other articles, or streaming YouTube, your targeted ads will pop up for viewing on those sites. And thanks to this, your brand will stick in their mind tempting them to try your services or products.
How does it work?
If you are currently using Google for Advertisement, then incorporating retargeting ads will be a lot easier. All you need is to get the Remarketing code or tag/ pixel and add it to it. After adding the code, any visitor to your site from that point on joins the program through cookies. What’s more, you can customize this program and focus on a specific audience using targeted display ads that fit their interests.
For instance, let’s say you’re running an e-commerce site that sells bathroom accessories. You can create a “Toiletries” remarketing ad that focuses on visitors who were interested in your site’s toiletries selling page. By doing so, this set of visitors will be able to see targeted display ads marketing the toiletries.
