The Incredible Network: Why Network Reach Is Important for ReTargeting

ReTargeting is an advertising technology that focuses on bringing your audience back to your site. This is accomplished by keeping your ads in front of your bounced visitors after they leave your website. In order to accomplish this effectively, your retargeting network needs to be able to access your audience from as many places as possible.

After people leave your website, they will continue to browse other sites and are likely to forget about your brand. The global average website conversion rate of around 2.2% proves this. ReTargeting aims to fix this problem by bringing your visitors back to your website. However, if you’re not leveraging ReTargeter’s Incredible Network to retarget your audience, you are missing out on many potential opportunities to retarget your visitors.

  • The Incredible Network also allows small to mid-sized companies appear much larger than they are. Having impressions show up on sites from Yahoo to the New York Times can work wonders for leveraging credibility.

  • How do those numbers compare to typical retargeting campaign performance progression over 3 months?

    I wouldn’t be surprised if retargeting campaigns typically see more results after users have been exposed to the ads for 2-3+ months and feel familiarity toward the brand.

    Not that I’m challenging whether your service out-performed the others – I expect that you would likely still be in the lead with campaign age factored in, but the thought came to mind. Thoughts? Does a retargeting campaign perform best after X amount of weeks/months?

    • Hi Claye,

      Thanks for reaching out. We find the campaigns do start to perform better as time progresses. We think of our service like eating vegetables or working out – if you do it once or for just a month, you may see very little improvements; if you do it consistently for three months, you’ll start to really notice differences!

      With that said, there’s a bunch of other optimizations going here – namely with creatives and landing pages. Advertisers who don’t A/B test their brand assets are likely missing out on a large campaign performance opportunity.

      Feel free to let me know how I can be helpful!
