What is Retargeting and Why Does it Work So Well?
Ever notice how you look at a product online, then see an ad for it following you around on every site?
That's retargeting in action.
Retargeting uses tracking pixels installed on your site to follow visitors after they leave and continue serving them relevant ads across the web.
So if a prospect hits your site but doesn't convert, retargeting allows you to essentially chase them down and continue the sales conversation wherever they surf.
This pulls back lost leads at a fraction of regular advertising since you're reaching qualified targets, not just cold traffic.
Leads that have engaged with your content before convert at a much higher rate when retargeted.
Setting Up Your Own Retargeting Sequence
Here's an overview of how to start retargeting your lost leads:
- Install tracking pixels from platforms like Facebook or Google on all site pages.
- Integrate email and payment platforms for accurate tracking of lead actions.
- Create sequenced ad campaigns targeted to different lead actions like adding to cart.
- Optimize ads over time by assessing performance data and tweaking messaging.
Retargeting brought in over 30% of my lost leads and doubled revenue.
It works by reminding cold leads exactly when their interest is piqued.
Tips For Targeting Your Retargeting
A few tips for optimal retargeting conversions:
- Focus initial efforts on leads that get far into your funnel like checkout.
- Be patient – it may take many impressions before each person converts.
- A/B test different ad variations to identify what motivates your audience.
- Sequence your ads so later messages recap earlier ones.
- Target multiple platforms like social, native, video to exhaust all options.
Retargeting quickly pays for itself many times over by recapturing otherwise lost leads.
Make sure to track conversion data closely to refine your approach over time.
Regain Control Over Your Lost Leads
Hopefully this gives you an idea of how big an impact retargeting can provide.
Even a basic sequence can double your revenue overnight.
It puts the power back in your hands to continue prospect conversations instead of crossing your fingers after they leave your site.
