Google Remarketing was recently updated to make it easier to set-up and easier to use. In case you aren’t familiar, Google Remarketing allows you to present users, who were previously on your site, with relevant ads as they continue browsing the web.
Marc Weisinger, of Search Engine Watch, has three key reasons you should be using one of the most powerful tools available to online marketers.
1. It’s Simple and Easy
Previously, implementing the remarketing code was a several step process. Now, you install one simple code in the footer of each page of your site and get on with your day. You can’t get much easier than one step.
2. The Possibilities are Endless
With the universal tag in place, you can use the Adwords interface to target specific groups. How specific? Well, that is up to you.
Want to target only those users who landed on a promotion page? Done.
Want to target only users who added a product to their cart, but didn’t end up buying? Done.
Plus, each new target group you set up gets the benefit of the cookies already stored by your universal tag.
3. Target Positive or Negative Audience
Before starting your next email marketing campaign, use the Adwords interface to target users who click through from your email to your site.
Alternatively, you can instead choose to exclude those users because, afterall, they sound pretty loyal and engaged already. That way, you don’t bombard them with your ads and are sure to instead target those users that may have seen your email but weren’t convinced right away.
