What’s Remarketing / Retargeting and which Strategy is Best for You?
Google Remarketing Ads, also known as retargeting, is a form of text or image advertisements and works based on two main concepts or a combination of both.
Site-Remarketing or Search-Remarketing?
A Site-Remarketing Campaign is aimed at showing your ads to internet users who have already visited your website. As you’re spending marketing dollars on getting potential customers to your website, either through traditional methods or online marketing, this form of remarketing will leverage your efforts and only target those customers again with the aim to convert them into a lead/sale.
A Google Search-Remarketing Campaign is aimed at showing your ads to internet users through the Google Ads Network, who have shown an interest in your product or service by visiting related websites and being identified through their search history focusing on your target keywords. This concept is particularly interesting if you’re looking to expand your reach of prospects or are looking for an alternative way of attracting attention.
Why Should I Consider Remarketing?
Remarketing ads generally result in a high number of low cost conversions (sales or leads), because the ads are being shown to people who have already visited your website or similar websites, are highly targeted, are familiar with your brand and may have considered purchasing your product or service already. Don’t waste marketing dollars getting customers to your website only to lose the sale – bring them back and close the deal!
Which Platform is the Best for my Campaign?
The team at WCR has been reviewing the pros and cons of each of these platforms and have access to each of these systems for our clients. The findings of our research were mixed and no one platform can do it all. Some offer search, other site remarketing on small budgets from $500/month with a simple interface, where others offer a unique integration into Facebook Ads, email campaigns and product feeds. Some lack transparency on the reporting, while others offer rich insights.
