Why Use Audience Remarketing?
Audiences and remarketing are important because they give you another tool to reconnect with your existing customers and prospects by engaging those that have visited your site and directing them back to your website after they’ve left, increasing the likelihood that you will convert them to a customer that completes a transaction. Research shows that 96 percent of first-time visitors leave websites without converting1. When people look for products and services online, they rarely convert on their first visit. Instead, people often visit a site, check out competitors and compare prices and then get distracted and leave the site or abandon the cart.1
Ways to Use Remarketing
When you use remarketing capabilities with Skai, you can customize search campaigns across various publishers and optimize the bids for the keywords to the right people. You can use remarketing in two ways:
- Make bid adjustments on your ad groups for users in your remarketing lists. These bid adjustments are applied when those users search for the keywords or products you are bidding on.
- Configure ad groups to only be triggered and show ads if a user is on your remarketing list and searches for the keywords or products you are bidding on.
Benefits of Remarketing
This tool may be one of the sharpest you have in your toolbox because there are some definite benefits to using it. Remarketing provides you the opportunity to:
- Segment the people who visit your site into audience segments and create personalized messages tailored to your existing high-value clients, new customers, or those that visited your site but then abandoned their shopping cart.
- Monitor how your audiences perform and adjust bids accordingly. You can increase your ROI by optimizing your ads, bids, and keywords for different audiences based on their past actions and potentially experience gains in click-through rates, conversion rates and lower cost per acquisition.
- Compare performance of audiences across publishers
“We’re excited to partner with Skai, one of the first companies to bring our Audience Remarketing tool to market. Remarketing will allow Skai’s customers the ability to efficiently target, manage and analyze their audiences across Bing,” said Brian Utter, General Manager, Network and Demand Management. “This is the first of many features we will release to help advertisers engage with their audiences in a more efficient manner, and we look forward to success it brings Skai’s customers.”
