Google AdWords Remarketing - A powerful marketing tool

Remarketing lets you show ads to people who've visited your website or used your mobile app. Once a visitor leaves your website (without buying anything) they will see these ads while browsing the web, watching YouTube videos or reading news sites.

Remarketing in Google AdWords consists of static images, animated images, video, responsive ads, and text ads that are placed on the Google Display and Google Search Network. What makes remarketing different from standard Display and Search advertising is the targeting. Remarketing consists of using a special tracking code to place cookies on the browsers of people visiting your website, and then serving ads to those with that cookie, specifically, on the Display and Search network.

AdWords Remarketing Options

Standard remarketing: Show ads to your past visitors as they browse Display Network websites and use Display Network apps.

Dynamic remarketing: Boost your results with dynamic remarketing, which takes remarketing to the next level with ads that include products or services that people viewed on your website.

Remarketing for mobile apps: Show ads to people who have used your mobile app or mobile website as they use other mobile apps or browse other mobile websites.

Remarketing lists for search ads: Show ads to your past visitors as they do follow-up searches for what they need on Google, after leaving your website.

Video remarketing: Show ads to people who have interacted with your videos or YouTube channel as they use YouTube and browse Display Network videos, websites and apps.

Email-list remarketing: With Customer Match, upload a list of email addresses that your customers have given you. When those people are signed in to Google Search, YouTube or Gmail, you can show them ads.

Selecting Your Audiences

The very first step to remarketing, like most things in paid search, is to analyze your data and develop a strategy. You’ll need to decide which visitors to your site you’d like to target ads to. These groups, the ones you want to target separately and the ones you don’t want to target at all, are audiences. There are an infinite number ways to target these audiences, including:

  • Based on the product page visited
  • Based on visiting a certain page of your checkout process
  • Even based on notvisiting a certain page
  • Time on
  • Number of pages
  • Demographic targeting
  • Geographic targeting

For example you can target people who visited the first page of your checkout process without hitting the thank-you page.

Basicall you can target any audience based on URLs. If have a thank you page after people submit their email address for signing up to get more information or register to see a special deal, you could use the URL of that thank you page for a remarketing list.

Benefits of Remarketing

Whether you're looking to drive sales activity, increase registrations or promote awareness of your brand, remarketing can be a strategic component of your advertising. It can drive return on investment (ROI) for all types of advertisers.

Access to people when they're most likely to buy: You have the option to reach people after they've interacted with your business. This could be when they're searching for your product, visiting other websites and using other mobile apps. AdWords remarketing provides timely touch points to drive your customers to your website and app when they're most engaged.

Lists tailored to your advertising goals: Customise your remarketing lists to achieve specific advertising goals. For example, you can create a "Shopping basket abandoners" list to show ads to the people who added something to their shopping basket but didn't complete a transaction.

Large-scale reach: You can reach people on your remarketing lists across their devices as they browse over 2 million websites and mobile apps.
