Remarketing: 10 minutes to understand and set-up a Campaign

Traffic doesn’t always convert in Conversion, more than the 90% of users don’t buy the first time.
Here’s where Remarketing magics happen!

The primary Remarketing function is to reach people who already visited your site or app and show them related content optimized for that kind of users. Remarketing helps you to connect with this potential customers and remind them the product/service they visited before with tailored ads. The idea is that the Users who already visited your site are more interested in your product/service and are more likely to generate Conversions. For this reason Advertiser should improve user- targeting and optimize Ads for them.


Remarketing could be used to achieve Leads, Brand Awarness and increase Sales activity or improve ROI of existing Campaigns to have better result with Conversions.
