What is Remarketing? (or Retargeting)
Have you ever been wandering about the internet and been surprised to find adverts for products you recently looked at? If you have, welcome to remarketing.
Maybe you looked at an online product and then, later that day, saw a discount advert in your social media feed. Or you clicked an advert in Facebook, and then later found it at the top of your web search. Yup – those are remarketing too. Which sounds just a little less creepy than its former, but now less favored name: retargeting.

Remarketing (or retargeting) is a form of online advertising. It can help you keep your products or your brand in front of potential customers after they leave your website or view your adverts. For most websites, only a small proportion of visitors buy on their first visit. But, by using software automation to continue to present your products to them, you can capture some of those lost sales.
How Does Remarketing Work?
There is a pixel on the marketer’s webpage. When the user opens the page, we download that pixel. And that causes your browser to store some information, a cookie.
Now, when you visit any other web page that bears adverts that are of the right type, the software on that page detects the cookie. If that cookie says you looked at a page with a purple sofa made by PurpleSofas.com, and Purple Sofas.com has the right ad contract, then that page will know to serve you an advert for their sofa.
