Retargeting Tips with Case Study

Observing website visitors drop off just as they’re on the verge of completing a purchase can be extremely frustrating. Luckily, there’s a tactic to re-engage these almost-converting website visitors: retargeting.

A retargeting approach is a crucial component of your media plan. Through retargeting, you can display online ads to a user based on their previous intent-driven actions on the web. It’s a vital strategy for guiding users toward conversion or another desired action.

Developing a successful retargeting strategy involves identifying where a user stands in the conversion funnel before presenting them with a follow-up ad. Retargeting is most effective when users are in the midst of the funnel, actively evaluating your offerings after becoming familiar with your brand.

Once you've established the connection between a user's actions and their funnel position, you can customize retargeting efforts to deliver ads encouraging them to progress toward conversion. Mobupps provides some retargeting tips for enhancing your strategy.

Why retargeting is important to add to user acquisition? 

  1. Get your newest users to complete an important action within your app, such as a registration or purchase
  2. Reactivate dormant users and get them to re-engage with your app or make a purchase
  3. Inform paying users about new app features or upsell them with offers and promotions

Retargeted users generate on average 37% more revenue events in the first 30 days after installation compared to users who have only been exposed to UA campaigns. It’s also cheaper to re-engage existing users than to acquire new ones. Acquiring a new user can be five to ten times more expensive than the cost of re-engaging an existing one.

Tips for getting the most out of retargeting campaigns

  1. Set Clear Goals: Determine what you want to achieve. Whether it's increasing sales, boosting brand awareness, or engaging with a niche audience, clarity in objectives is key.
  2. Product Selection: Opt for products with higher profit margins to maximize returns on your retargeting investment. Focus on items that drive significant profits rather than those with minimal returns.
  3. Audience Targeting: Tailor your ads to specific groups, such as cart abandoners or past customers. By targeting those closest to making a purchase, you increase the likelihood of conversion.
  4. Timing and Frequency: Be mindful of when and how often you display ads. Consider seasonal trends and avoid bombarding users with excessive ads to prevent annoyance and potential backlash.
  5. Variety and Testing: Experiment with different ad variations to avoid fatigue and improve effectiveness. Conduct A/B testing to identify which elements resonate best with your audience.
  6. Landing Page Optimization: Ensure your landing pages inspire trust and confidence. Incorporate social proof, customer reviews, and trust signals to enhance conversion rates.
  7. Monitor and Adjust: Continuously monitor campaign performance and adjust strategies accordingly. Stay vigilant to changes in trends, audience behavior, and ad performance to maximize results.
