  • Staples Example:I go to Staples looking for a red stapler.I find one I like and decide to add it to my cartNot wanting to make the purchase right away, I check my Facebook for new updates and BAM – seconds after adding that stapler to my cart, there it is – the EXACT one - haunting me on my FB page
  • Added notes by Ana* More relevancy=more leads. Youre only serving ads to those who have visited your site. This is much more effective then serving ads to a variety of people that are in your customer demographic – which is the common strategy for traditional display ads.Coverage- Your creating coverage off of your site. If you’re not there… your competitor willMessage evolution – you can control the message you send to an individual throughout the time you are remarketing. Tailor the message based on how long its been since they’ve been to you site
  • Is it worth it to spend lots of ad money on low cost item
  • Assist (usually) rather than direct conversion
  • Customer experiences aren’t all equalAverage person converts after 8 touchesConversion path (all the different ways people end up converting)Which channel gets the credit? Usually people see ad, don’t click on them but later come back for transaction
  • In this Top Conversion Paths report provided by Google analytics, you can see all the various paths a visitor took to eventually convert on the site. You can see that some converted after visiting the site twice on a paid ad and then some searched organically and then bookmarked your site and then later converted.
  • Conversion journeys
  • how long you’d like to store a cookie in someone’s computer and target him or her. There are many different strategies to selecting membership duration. You want to think about your business and your goals when selecting membership duration. They can last up to 180 days.Do you have an e-commerce site that people only buy from once every three months? You should extend your membership duration to 90 days.Do you have a service that requires people to sign up again after 30 days? Try a 60-day membership so you know they’re getting heavily targeted if they forget to renew directly after 30 days.You are always at risk of annoying people if you show them your ad too much all over the Internet.
  • no hard and fast rule, but a good guideline is to set a limit of 5-7 impressions
  • Control the creepy by delivering the appropriate message. Think of what will entice your searcher to come back and where they are in the conversion process before serving them random ads
  • Search through Google Network
