Most people don’t give it up on the first date, why retargeting marketing is like the after date follow up text.
Most people don’t give it up on the first date. In fact more often than not, most people take a little while to warm up to someone new, and that is no exception for potential customers. This is why retargeting marketing is crucial for your conversion game and making those well earned sales. So let me explain it via a dating metaphor.
Not dissimilar to the dating game, your potential customer probably discovered you online whilst they were window shopping. But they left without buying anything; they even went to the effort to add your product to their cart, and then for seemingly no reason whatsoever, they abandoned checkout.
But don’t give up hope, just because they didn’t purchase your product on the first round it doesn’t mean they didn’t want to. They may still be intrigued by you, they probably think you’re a total catch, and they might even plan on giving it up in a few dates time. But right now it just isn’t the right timing. If you need some hard facts to give you a little perspective and comfort, only 2% of consumers actually buy on the first shop! But that 2% are the minority and obviously quite impulsive, so you shouldn’t rely on them for your sales. But what about the whopping 98% that didn’t go the whole nine yards the first time around? They’re the reason you need retargeting marketing.
You need retargeting advertising because people are cautious, and busy, and on budgets, and want to know they can trust you. They might have had commitments to other things when they discovered you, like their gas bill, and phone company. Or perhaps they were on their way to work or to a real life date and they forgot to come back to you to complete the order. The reasons are endless, but the solution is simple. Adwords retargeting.
What is retargeting and how does it work? Glad you asked
Retargeting is an online marketing strategy that helps to repeatedly show your business to all the traffic that’s already visited your website, but left without so much as a goodbye. Essentially, it keeps you relevant and constantly in the minds of the 98% of the population that didn’t convert on the first date. Retargeting is like that after date text that says, “Hey, our first date went pretty well, I know you like me, I clearly like you. So let’s get together again.”
With the use of codes, or pixels that are invisible to the untrained eye, and implemented within the HTML code of your website- a secret browser cookie is fired every time a new customer visits your site. The cookie will drop a secret message to your adwords retargeting campaign and the next time that particular visitor browses through the internet, your ads will appear and act as visual reminders that you exist, and yes they should give you another chance.

From the first meeting I had with the team at Dilate I was impressed by their professionalism and how personable all the staff were. I worked closely with them for about 4/5 months to build an innovative website that meet all my expectations. The user-friendliness for the customers has seen a decrease in phone bookings [compared to my previous dinosaur website] and the functionality on the backend has reduce my workload tenfold! I finally feel our website reflects my business. I would HIGHLY recommend Dilate Digital to anyone! Huge thanks to Bodie, Trav, Yi-Main and Bipu for everything!20190301Barista School Perth
