Browser Retargeting | Remarketing

What is Browser Retargeting/Remarketing?

A hot and essential component of a balanced digital marketing strategy is retargeting. Retargeting is also referred to as remarketing by Google and is now part of the digital marketing mainstay. Retargeting is the art of using technology to strategically serving ads to potential customers based on their prior engagement with a website. It is capturing an ip address or internet surfing behavior and tactically trying to entice the visitor and capitalize on their interest. This technology can be utilized not only to strategically send ads to an ip address based on a website visit, but can also be applied to strategically send ads to an ip address based on searches, emails, and CRM (Customer Relationship Management).

Remarketing or retargeting that is site-based shows advertisements to those who have previously visited your website. The strategically crafted ads will be shown on a variety of sites that the previous visitor goes to, keeping your brand in front of your bounced site visitors in an attempt to bring them back.  Simply put, site-based retargeting uses cookies within the parameters of industry best practices. Through the use of a few lines of code set to automatically implement, your retargeting advertisement campaign is allowed to stay in front of those who have previously visited your site. The cookie is a very small file serving the purpose of storing information regarding the site visit, but not store any sensitive info (i.e. visitor’s name, address, etc.).


After a visitor leaves your website and goes to another website (immediately as well as at a later time), the process of retargeting unfolds. When there is available ad space, your retargeting ad launches an automated bid on that particular space in real-time. In cases where you are the highest bidder, you secure that particular advertising space within a fraction of a second (before the page even loads).

Retargeting is highly popular for use by ecommerce companies because it has proven to be highly effective in bringing back bounced visitor traffic and reversing shopping cart abandonment.


Ecommerce businesses are not the only ones loving this technology and reaping its benefits. B2B companies are also a match for this technology and strategy because it has shown to be a vital aid to them for maintaining leads during longer purchase cycles. This also applies to schools during enrollment periods, non-profit organization for donations, and recruiters for qualified applicants. There are certainly many more applications from many sectors of business.

Retargeting can be highly effective as one of the marketing tools to maximize your Internet Presence and increase your business performance. People who have already shown an interest in your products and/or services are targeting with friendly and convincing reminders. Yes, it’s fairly easy to set up and launch when carefully planned; but, it’s also easy to make mistakes that can be harmful.
