You don’t need us to tell you that capturing the attention of potential customers is more challenging now than ever before. You’re likely experiencing this yourself already.
With countless distractions and choices, innovative marketing strategies are necessary for businesses wanting to engage their target audience effectively. And this is where remarketing comes into play–a dynamic marketing approach that allows businesses to re-connect with individuals who indicated interest and guide them through a personalized journey across various channels and touchpoints.
By strategically targeting these individuals with tailored messages and offers, companies can stay top-of-mind, nurture relationships, and ultimately drive conversions.
Remarketing’s goal is simple yet powerful: bring potential customers back into the sales funnel, rekindle their interest, and guide them towards purchasing (or any kind of goal).

Let’s get into it.
An airline wanted to engage potential customers interested in specific travel destinations. It aimed to increase conversions by delivering personalized offers and relevant information based on location and browsing behavior.
The airline chose to implement two strategies for its remarketing technique:
First, it used geofencing through Architect — Insider’s customer journey builder to identify the best available routes according to each customer’s specific location. For example, if a user was in New York City, the company would display discounted tickets and promotional offers for flights or packages to popular destinations from the nearest airports.
It then used Architect’s Facebook Ads tool to leverage the location data and specifically reach users who had previously shown interest in the airline’s promoted destinations. With Insider’s Architect, the company could retarget website visitors who had interacted with specific destination pages by showing ads on Facebook. These ads could be personalized based on the user’s browsing behavior, showcasing relevant messages and offers related to their previous interest.
By targeting users who had already shown interest in the promoted destinations, the travel company could nurture their intent and guide them toward booking, increasing conversions by 52%.
“The biggest part of our marketing spend has always been digital ads. While they were a major driver that helped us increase website traffic, conversion was always a challenge. By leveraging Insider’s predictive segments for Facebook Ad campaigns, we achieved an uplift of 381% in conversion rate for the same budget spend. And, by replicating the same model, we could also acquire new customers. The results have absolutely stunned us!”

A pizza restaurant wanted to increase in-store sales by implementing location-based retargeting strategies—specifically targeting customers within a two-mile radius of the restaurant’s location. It also wanted to promote the takeaway option to allow room for walk-in customers.
After identifying previous customers within a two-mile zone, the restaurant created a remarketing campaign on Google Search, to target users who are searching for pizza options as food delivery. The campaign emphasized the convenience of nearby customers to eat restaurant-quality food from the comfort of their homes without the delivery fee and also by providing an additional discount.

Remarketing refers to re-engaging audiences who have already interacted with your brand but haven’t completed the desired action to encourage them to complete the desired action, such as purchase. Marketers can retarget users who have already shown interest in your product or service across ad platforms like Google Ads and Facebook Ads.
Since remarketing is basically re-engagement that capitalizes on the user’s familiarity with the brand’s product or service, users are more likely to engage with remarketing ads as they recognize the brand. Remarketing capitalizes on this, reinforcing brand awareness, building trust, and guiding users further down the conversion funnel.
Remarketing is an effective strategy in digital marketing as these campaigns (ads aligned with users’ past interactions) enhance relevancy and boost engagement rates. With advanced remarketing platforms, brands can strategically adjust ad frequency and messaging to prevent ad fatigue, ensuring a positive user experience.
Third-party cookies have been the traditional means of tracking. However, with the downfall of cookies, platforms have leveraged advanced tracking technologies based on attributes like device, IP address, or user behavior that don’t rely on cookies to retarget customers seamlessly. This ensures privacy compliance and maintains the efficacy of remarketing efforts.
You can set up remarketing campaigns on channels like Google Ads and Facebook Ads. You start by defining your target audience and setting a duration the campaign will be live for. Then, you create the ad campaigns, which you will launch across the different Google and Facebook platforms. Once the campaigns are live, you monitor them and perform CTR optimizations to ensure you drive your audience towards conversion.
