What is Remarketing?
Remarketing is a marketing strategy that allows you to show an ad to people who visited a specific page on your website. This is extremely important in today’s virtual environment. Buyers are doing research online to find the best, most price competitive products and services on the market. Using a remarketing strategy can help keep your business on their mind.
There are several benefits to running remarketing campaigns:
Well-timed targeting: you are showing your ads to people who already showed interest in the products or services you offer. Businesses often do a lot of research before making a purchase decision, so it’s helpful to remind them that your product or service is a contender when they’re looking at other options.
Brand knowledge: people who see your ads already know who you are. Even if they’re not extremely familiar with you, they have at least seen your branding before, since they’ve been on your website.
Focused advertising: remarketing makes it extremely easy to focus your ads on one specific topic. Since remarketing is set up where ads are targeted at people who were on a specific page, you know exactly what people are interested in.
Because of these benefits, remarketing campaigns result in higher conversion rates for B2B companies than traditional search engine advertising.
