Retargeting Your Visitors: How Marketers Can Work Around Google's 'Mute This Ad' Feature

Posted by Pete Stafford on July 26, 2018 at 10:18 AM

Digital marketers understand the value of a retargeting strategy, encouraging those who are already on the brand discovery journey to read more content and convert into a customer.

Research cited in Business 2 Community shows that retargeting ads have a 76 percent higher click-through rate, and it makes sense that you would want to reach people who have already expressed initial interest, or at least curiosity, about your brand.

But Google's Mute This Ad function, which lets users hide ads, is being rolled out more aggressively to remarketing ads, which Google refers to as reminder ads. Plus, it will let users know that they've been retargeted.

Use Retargeting to Grow Your Business

Posted by Zuri Stanback on July 14, 2017 at 11:51 AM

Retargeting is a broad marketing term that refers to advertising that targets users who have already interacted with your brand in specifically-defined ways. This includes a visit to your website, browsing social media pages or clicking a product.

Know How It Works

When guests take one of these actions, a cookie is set in their browser and they're served ads based on their previous behavior. For instance, if you own a local coffee shop and a user within a specific ZIP code is browsing your delivery menu, a retargeting strategy could deliver ads to this customer featuring the menu items they were looking at.

Google Enables Remarketing for Cross-device Audience Targeting

Posted by Zuri Stanback on May 22, 2017 at 2:03 PM

Eight months after its first announcement that it would enable cross-device remarketing through the use of signed-in user data, Google added another critical layer of functionality: As of May 15, the data is available to Google Analytics and advertisers creating audience lists.

The announcement was made quietly through the Google Analytics dashboard, but it has important implications for advertisers using Google Analytics — especially those who have been frustrated by some of its limitations. As Marketing Land noted, cross-device retargeting has long been available from other major ad platforms, including Facebook, but Google's retargeting capabilities were much more limited because they haven't allowed tracking via user sign-ins.

Without Search Retargeting, You Aren't Reaching the Right Customers

Posted by Zuri Stanback on November 8, 2016 at 11:41 AM

So many online journeys, consumer and otherwise, begin with a search engine. So, naturally, the data stemming from those searches offers incredible value to marketers. This single data stream may be the most comprehensive and illuminating source of information you'll find anywhere online — digital marketers can't afford to ignore the opportunity it represents.

The value of search data isn't restricted to applications within those search engines themselves. Marketers can pull that data and use it to retarget consumers on other channels as well. Search retargeting uses past search activity to display ads on other platforms, including Facebook and other display ad networks. Search Engine Journal explains it is an important component of your marketing strategy.

Retargeting is an effective strategy for brands looking to recapture interested consumers and pursue transactions that were abandoned before they could be completed. When properly deployed, it offers incredible value.

What Are Gmail Ads and How Can Marketers Make Use of Them?

Posted by Pete Stafford on November 3, 2016 at 2:05 PM

With over one billion global Gmail users as of February, according to Digital Trends, chances are good that either you or the person sitting next to you is one of those users. And though this free email service is only a decade old, Google has provided an interesting way for advertisers to reach consumers in a place where (according to The Huffington Post) they spend over six hours a day: their inboxes!

What are Gmail ads?

Gmail ads are a specific type of native advertising that uses Google's AdWords platform to target users based on the content of messages in their Gmail accounts. If you've ever used the browser version of Gmail, you may have noticed a "Promotions" tab near the top of the page. This is where they can be found most easily. These ads are formatted like short emails with 25-character headlines and 100-character mini-bodies. Consumers can click anywhere on these lines to view expanded ads that look like emails and typically contain graphics, links, and additional text.
