- What Retargeting Ads are and how they work,
- Why retargeting ads can significantly increase your revenue, and
- How you can get started with retargeting ads.
What are Retargeting Ads?
By definition, retargeting ads are, well…Ads that can retarget! Compared to normal advertisements, they are much more efficient, accurate, and predictable. How do they work? Similar to normal advertisements, retargeting ads need a desired outcome. For example, let’s say a car dealership wants customers to visit their location. The dealership could utilize normal advertising like a billboard, or they could run a retargeting ad through Facebook. Check out how they stack up against each other below!
Normal Ad: Customers see the billboard, and there’s a small chance they take any further action.
Retargeting Ad: Customers casually visit the dealership’s website, then leave. At this point, there is still a small chance they take any further action; however, after they leave, they go browse Facebook, and a custom advertisement for the dealership is shown to them. This same ad may be shown multiple times until the point the customer seriously considers visiting!
Get Rich Quick: Increasing Your Revenue
To put it simply, your revenue is bound to increase significantly just from using retargeting ads. The possibilities for who you want to target and what you want to target them for are limitless. Want to target previous customers who have only bought your most expensive product? Done. Want to only target corporate executives that work at a Fortune 500 company and have searched for a particular keyword in the last three days? Done. The advantage of having the ability to select the timing of the ad based on the behavior of the viewer cannot be stressed enough!
How to Get Started and Where to Go
Okay, you’re convinced. So, how do you get started as easily as possible? If you don’t want to hire a professional, there are free courses available like the ones at https://www.facebook.com/business/learn. Start by learning the basics for the platforms you’re interested in. Don’t have the time? Hire a professional to install retargeting code into your website, then get rolling.
After you have tracking capabilities, determine your goals, and base the advertisements on those goals. You could get more site visitors, readers, sales, or even hire for an open position.
Retargeting advertisements are powerful, flexible, and offer nearly unlimited potential. They work by tracking the behavior of your customers, then strategically displaying ads based on what your customers do. Retargeting ads can increase your revenue nearly overnight with the right campaign and can be installed on your website.

“I highly recommend hiring someone to install the code on your website or the entire site can crash”
“If you’re starting out I would recommend just doing the retargeting because that alone is going to 10X your dollars”
“A regular ad is just going out to people that fit a certain description, but retargeting ads go out to people that have visited your website, bought products from you before, or gone to cart and never checked out.”
“All of them [social media platforms] have different settings that can change how the retargeting works.”
