Online Ad Retargeting Services

What Is Ad Retargeting?

Retargeting, also known as remarketing, is a form of online advertising that targets consumers based on their actions online, such as visiting an advertiser’s website. A “cookie-based” technology, retargeting is used to reconnect with these site visitors around the Internet on sites utilizing corresponding ad networks or a specific social media website or app. Retargeting is an extremely powerful way to re-engage site visitors who are already familiar with an advertiser’s brand, products or services, nurturing them down the path to purchase.

Retargeting is a marketing tactic that can be deployed in all industries and business models. Ecommerce marketers utilize Facebook Dynamic Product Ads and Google Dynamic Remarketing products to bring customers back to websites to complete their unfinished transactions, while B2B marketers frequently use remarketing to nurture business-to-business leads with long sales cycles.

How Does Retargeting Work?

Retargeting works by displaying ads to individuals who are contained within your retargeting audiences. Retargeting audiences are collected in many different ways but are primarily gathered by identifying previous visitors to your website. This identification process is possible by adding “cookies” to the visitor’s browser via a pixel or code snippet that has been placed within the website code. Because retargeting cookies and pixels are specific to each ad platform, these audiences are specific to each ad platform and grow independently from each other.

Most retargeting ad impressions are delivered by use of the Google Display Network and a few social media ad platforms (primarily Facebook). Although, in most cases, the ad impressions they deploy on are still through Google AdWords or Facebook, there are many “ad networks” that provide remarketing platforms.

Marketers can create retargeting audiences based on the amount of time since a site visitor’s last visit to a specific web page or site. These durations can vary by days, weeks, months and, in the case of Google AdWords remarketing, years. In these time periods, advertisers can deploy ads to incentivize remarketing audiences to revisit the site to buy products/services or provide them with new offerings.

Is Retargeting Effective?

Yes. Retargeting is a powerful tactic for reaching highly targeted audiences who already have an interest in an advertiser’s product or service and is also a very cost-effective approach. Historically, Marketing Mojo has found cost-per-click for retargeting campaigns to be lower relative to most other ad-targeting methods, which contributes to lowering conversion costs and boosting return on ad spend.

What Sets Marketing Mojo’s Retargeting Approach Apart

While some other online advertising agencies might focus solely on brand awareness — such as how many impressions your retargeting ads receive – Marketing Mojo is driven by results that impact an advertiser’s bottom line and works with clients to determine their unique goals.

We will segment and create the retargeting audiences, develop ad creative specific to those audiences and test that ad creative to maximize conversion.

Marketing Mojo manages online ad retargeting campaigns on:

  • Google AdWords
    • Remarketing via the Google Display Network (GDN), Remarketing Lists for Search Ads (RLSAs) and dynamic product remarketing
  • Bing Ads
    • Remarketing via paid search
  • Twitter
    • Remarketing inside the Twitter environment
  • Facebook
    • Retargeting via Facebook’s Custom Audiences and Dynamic Product Ads

Remarketing is an important part of our online advertising services. The amount we invest for advertisers is dependent on the returns it brings back to the advertiser.

  • You Shouldn’t Trust the Google Display Network. Take Control Now!
    For over a decade, I've been inheriting Google Ad Accounts managed by other agencies or in-house marketing departments.  There are a few "go-to" tactics I use to evaluate just what kind of problem I have inherited and checking the Display Ads is a good way of knowing what kind of manager the previous account manager was.  Because turning a blind-eye to what Google Display Network Campaigns does is the most common "set-it and forget it" tactic there is in pay per click management. We recently inherited a group of ad accounts where the greatest sin of the former manager was failing to diligently manage and verify what his client was getting from its Google Display Network campaigns (He was getting Ad Clicks that were blatantly fraudulent).  In some ways, it was easy to see why he ignored them.  Those campaigns delivered far and away the greatest lead volume of the entire account.

  • CPG and Grocery Product Marketers. You are Doing Online Ads Wrong.
    New options for tracking conversions from online ads to actual store visits provide true ROI metrics that go far beyond just impressions and clicks. I don't envy consumer package good (CPG) or grocery product marketers when it comes to knowing what to do with online advertising.  Their sales are almost entirely in retail stores or on sites like Amazon and there isn't exactly a big "Direct To Consumer" market for things like dryer sheets.  So determining the impact of online advertising on sales the way an e-commerce site or lead generation site would do it with e-commerce sales or lead analytics has been difficult.  Usually about the best that could ever be done for finding "off-line" conversion actions is coupon redemption (which historically has only been a 2% redemption rate).

    Why pay $10 when I can get the exact same thing for $5 (and twice as much) ?  That's the gist of this story, but the marketplace I'm talking about is LinkedIn Ads Bidding. LinkedIn Ads is just trying to be helpful when they give you the "Bidding Range" that other advertisers are paying for audiences similar to your campaign's audience.  You don't want to cheap out and look like a chump that can't even compete do you?
