What is Re-marketing?
Re-marketing is a feature that lets you reach people who have previously visited your site, and show them relevant ads across the web or when they search on Google. For example when people leave your site without buying anything, re-marketing helps you connect with these potential customers again. You are even able to create a messaged aimed at customers who have previously visited your site.
You are able to use re-marketing to match the right message to the right people at the right time. Here is a simply explanation on how re-marketing works, you add a piece of code (re-marketing tag) to all of the pages of your site. Then, when customers come to your site, they’ll be added to your re-marketing lists. You can later reach out to these potential buyers while they search on Google or browse other websites.
