What Is Remarketing?
Staying top of your target market’s mind is a powerful way to increase sales.
Brand awareness is not always an easy task in the online space where there can be a lot of noise. But, there is a way.
Remarketing is a powerful online marketing technique which allows you to stay connected with your target audience, even after they leave your site.
It improves sales conversions and raises your brand profile. It’s a way of showing adverts to people who have visited your website but who didn’t complete a desired action. That action may have been making a sale or submitting an enquiry form, for example.
Instead they disappeared off into the internet ether, potentially never to be seen again.
Or at least that used to be the case. Remarketing allows you to market to those people again.
Smart, yes? What company wouldn’t want to be able to reconnect easily with their website visitors. After all, they came to your site because there was something of interest to them. They are the “i’ll have a P please Bob” which every company wants… prospects!
Remarketing can seem a little creepy to some, but it’s an effective way of advertising online. It works by websites using a piece of code – a cookie – to track visitor actions.
Ever been on one site, left it and then noticed an advert on a different website for the one you were on earlier? That’s a type of remarketing in action.
As part of your whole digital marketing plan of action, it’s a very important strategic step. It can help you drive sales activity, increase registrations or promote awareness of your brand, making it a worthwhile component of your advertising.
You may also hear remarketing referred to as retargeting.
In a Nutshell, Here’s How Remarketing Works:
- You get traffic (visitors) to your website
- Visitor leaves
- Visitor goes to other websites and sees an advert for your product or service
- Visitor returns to your website
Your remarketing adverts get placed on a network of websites and social media sites.
Google Adwords, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter & YouTube are examples of places where you might see them.
If they haven’t turned off cookies, past visitors to your website will see your adverts whilst they are browsing other sites on the web. For example, a key buyer from one of your target industries might be reading an article on an industry related news site. They are scrolling through and, hey presto, see your advert.
Increased familiarisation helps to foster brand affinity. Greater brand affinity decreases buying friction.
When people are already familiar with your brand, they are much more likely to become customers or to complete other valuable actions on your website.
The ads act as a reminder in the same way regular offline ads would. By keeping your brand top-of-mind they entice visitors to come back for more.
The Benefits of Remarketing
How does dramatically increasing your conversion rate and ROI sound?
The increased brand exposure from remarketing adverts makes you more recognisible to your target market, subsequently raising people’s trust in you and making a conversion more likely
Because of this, remarketing ads have much higher click-through & conversion rates than other forms of online advertising. They can drive ROI for all types of businesses.
Higher click-through-rates (CTR) & conversions:
- Because of the increased brand affinity, remarketing adverts can have a much higher CTR – some research suggests as much as 10 x increase!
- Delivering repeat traffic to your site also increases conversions
- Improves ROI because of increased user touchpoints
