Google Ads Remarketing
At the beginning of each ad creation process, the audience for ad targeting is defined. However, after a certain period of advertising it may turn out that a given group might not be interested in the advertiser’s products or services.
The situation is completely different in the case of remarketing – its greatest advantage is that it reaches people who have expressed previous interest in your product or service.
Remarketing is, therefore, a tool that you can use in your marketing strategy, it works especially in the case of long, complicated ones or burdened with the need for multiple rethinking of the sales process by a potential customer.
Remarketing – how does it work?
Remarketing allows you to display ads to people who have already visited your website or have shown interest in your products, services (e.g. they watched a specific video on YouTube, clicked on a given banner on Facebook or LinkedIn).
By investing in remarketing, you focus your efforts on potential customers who are further down the sales funnel. These are people who previously expressed interest in the products or services you offer, searched for information about them and found your business, but did not buy anything. This is when remarketing ads can come in handy. It will, firstly, remind the users of the offer they saw, and secondly, it will save you from losing these potential customers to the competition.
An example of an ad in remarketing
Suppose you sell branded footwear in your online store. You can then, for example, create a remarketing campaign that targets people associated with the keyword “adidas women shoes”. This ad will be displayed to those who visited your page, which offers various adidas shoes for women. As a result, ads for your products will also appear on other websites, which will later be visited by people previously browsing your products from the above-mentioned category. A group of these people is potentially interested in your product assortment. Therefore, you can target the group with a specific message so as to encourage it to buy more, mentioning, for example, free delivery, extended return period or other factors that could influence the final decision of completing the purchase. Moreover, you can add this person to the “Shoes Category” list, and then, for example, raise your bid the next time that user searches for similar products on Google.
Types of remarketing in Google Ads
Remarketing in Google Ads is an advanced tool that, thanks to special functions, will allow you to create groups of people even better and more accurately, and thus personalize the format and display options of your ads.
Remarketing – what do you need to get started?
To implement ppc remarketing on your website, you need to add a tracking code on your website, also called a tag or a pixel (depending on where you want to display remarketing ads: in Google campaigns it is a tag, on Facebook and Linkedin a pixel).
After installing it in the right place on the website by a IT specialist, the code will start automatically collect a list of visitors to your website through cookies.
This code can be variously adapted depending on specific subpages or categories/subcategories. An appropriate remarketing list is created for the selected subpages or categories. So you can create many different lists of potential customers depending on e.g. their age or interest in other categories of products or services.
Remarketing – who can see the ads and where?
Ads targeted at groups of people created from remarketing lists will be displayed on pages that accept ads from the Google Display Network or Facebook or Linkedin Display Network.

For example, targeting a given ad on the Google Display Network, Facebook and YouTube – you are practically everywhere where your potential customer is! Plus, you know exactly who is receiving your ads: the people who have already interacted with your brand and initially expressed interest in it.
