Only 2-4% of site visits result in transactions. This is because shoppers are flooded with choices. They get easily distracted and lost with thousands of other options they have. That is why eCommerce brands are tasked with winning back shoppers who have shown interest in their products in the past. And in order to do this, remarketing is a way to go.

What is remarketing?

Remarketing campaigns are designed to display ads to potential customers who visited your site and left without taking any action, whether that’s by browsing a product category, adding an item to their cart, or visiting a landing page without signing up for a newsletter.

Remarketing uses that information to serve them ads on social media, google, and other sites to encourage them to buy the product.

It is a second chance to convert and a partially useful method for re-engaging past customers and reminding them why they chose you in the first place.

How does remarketing work?

Remarketing tracks the user data to understand where shoppers have been on your site and what action they have taken and where they left their journey. The campaigns are incredibly targeted and personalized.

Retargeted shoppers are more likely to convert by 43% and three out of five online users notice ads showing products they previously viewed, which is why remarketing is so an effective and powerful tool for online businesses.
