Got a problem with abandoned shopping carts? Retargeting advertising is for you.

Nothing is more frustrating than working hard to bring visitors to your site only for them to abandon their shopping cart without making a purchase.

We can help you win them back. Using a strategy called “retargeting”, we will leverage the full capability of search and social channels to market directly to users who have already interacted with your brand.

What is Retargeting?

You visited your competitor’s website, and now you see their ads everywhere. In your Facebook feed, in the margins of other websites, even in your email, there they are. It’s as if they own the internet.

Your competitors are using a strategy called “retargeting”, aka Remarketing.

You don’t own the internet, but with Retargeting you can appear to.

The way it works is we use cookies to “tag” visitors to your website. That tag then allows us to continue marketing to those visitors through channels like Google and Facebook. You’re not buying the whole internet, just access to people who have already shown an interest in your company.

Retargeting is a powerful way to drive repeat sales and recover lost business.

Goodbye abandoned shopping carts

Oftentimes people hesitate before making a purchase. Maybe the timing isn’t right, or they want to do more research, so they navigate away from your website and leave their shopping cart abandoned.

Retargeting lets you serve ads specifically to those customers, inducing them to come back and complete their purchase.

Stay top of mind

Many people forget the address of the sites they have visited and you need a way to remind them. Or maybe they are a past customer and you want to notify them of a new sale. Retargeting lets you tailor messages to users based on their past interaction with your website or social media page.

Only pay when someone clicks your ad

“Pay-per-click” advertising with Google and Facebook means you are only charged when someone clicks on your ad to visit your website. You are not charged just for appearing on the page. “Owning the internet” is a lot more affordable than you might think.

FAQ about our retargeting services

Our PPC specialists are experienced in all the major paid media platforms: Google Ads, Facebook Ads, Bing Ads, LinkedIn Ads, Pinterest Ads, Twitter Ads, and AdRoll. Your account manager will work with you to determine the appropriate channels for your budget and business objectives.

The marketing platforms do not disclose identifying information about specific visitors, and each platform has some minimum list size required before it will deliver retargeted advertising in order to protect user anonymity.

Retargeting does not build your audience list, rather it leverages your existing audience to get more conversions. You still need an audience-building strategy, and retargeting will help you make the most of those efforts.

We offer two pricing models for our agency fee: a flat monthly management fee, and a management fee as a percentage (18%) of the budget. When we charge a flat monthly fee, the client's payment information is connected to the advertising platforms and the agency fee and ad spend are kept separate. When we charge a percentage of the budget, we collect the full budget and allocate the ad spend to the ad channels to maximize the client's return on investment. Either model is a matter of preference both for the client and for the account executive responsible for the account.

We also charge setup and landing page fees that are assessed based on the scope of the project.

You don’t have to be a Fortune 500 company to run an effective retargeting campaign

Even our smallest PPC management engagements can include a retargeting component. In terms of cost-per-click, it is one of the most affordable marketing tactics available. But retargeting does not work on its own because it requires an active audience list – one that is built using traditional PPC, SEO, and social media marketing.

There are a million low-cost agencies and freelancers that will sell you digital services a la carte without any regard for a larger strategy, but those efforts are usually doomed to fail and give digital marketing a bad name. The important thing is to have a holistic, integrated marketing strategy that utilizes a mix of tactics and channels so that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
