In the vibrant world of digital marketing, making a lasting impression on your audience is key. That’s where retargeting comes into play, a powerful strategy that Ad360 has mastered to help brands like yours reconnect with potential customers. Let’s dive into how retargeting can transform your digital campaigns.
Imagine this scenario: A user visits your website, browses a few pages, but leaves without making a purchase or signing up. This is where most traditional advertising strategies might hit a dead end. But not with retargeting. Retargeting allows us to find these potential customers wherever they continue their online journey, keeping your brand front and center.
When users visit your site, they are tagged with a small piece of code (a cookie). This cookie then allows Ad360 to ‘follow’ them across the web. When they visit other websites that display ads, your ad can appear, serving as a gentle reminder of your brand and offerings.
The benefits of Retargeting have been proven in many studies, such as the one conducted by Stanford Graduate School of Business marketing professors Navdeep Sahni and Sridhar Narayanan examined the effectiveness of various retargeting campaigns on over 230,000 visitors to BuildDirect.com, a Canada-based home-improvement retailer. The study revealed that retargeted advertising is effective, particularly when initiated soon after a user’s website visit. Among users who left the BuildDirect website after viewing a product page, retargeted ads increased their likelihood of returning to the site by nearly 15%. For more detailed insights from the study, you can access the full report here.
Ad360’s approach to retargeting is all about precision and relevance. We understand that a ‘one size fits all’ strategy doesn’t work in the nuanced digital world. Therefore, our retargeting campaigns are tailored to align with your unique brand message and target audience.
Retargeting is an opportunity to re-engage users who are on the verge of becoming customers. It’s about bringing them back to your website, not with intrusive advertising, but with smart, relevant, and engaging content. With Ad360, embrace retargeting and turn those missed opportunities into successful conversions.
Retargeting isn’t just a marketing tactic; it’s a strategic tool for nurturing potential customers and guiding them back to your brand. In the hands of experts like Ad360, it becomes an integral part of a comprehensive digital marketing strategy, driving engagement and conversions. Ready to bring your audience back where they belong? Let Ad360 show you the way!
If you have kept up with our previous posts on retargeting (click here, here, and here for a refresher course), you know that retargeting is arguably the most effective digital marketing strategy on the web.
That means for online business owners, learning the fundamentals of retargeting are essential if you want to succeed and increase your sales on Shopify!
However, did you know that there are ways to deploy “layers” of ad retargeting? The value of this tactic is simple: you reach your audience across all search engines and platforms – rather than being restricted to a single network. In other words, layered ad retargeting empowers e-commerce business owners to target users not only on sites like Facebook and Google, but it allows them to continue showing ads to users as they browse the millions of Independent sites across the web.
Check out this post for a 2-step guide on how to layer ad retargeting to maximize conversions and increase your sales on Shopify 😊
To start, remember that platforms like Google offer their own remarketing programs that can be toggled on. This is a no-brainer. If you are not already using this baseline ad retargeting technique, you are allowing ~98% of all of your web traffic to “fall through the cracks.” With no way of knowing how has visited your site, your digital marketing strategy will continue to feel like “finding a needle in a haystack.”
Step 2: Layer Ad Retargeting that Works Across the Entire Web
Now that you have established ad retargeting on the specific platform in question (e.g. – Google), it is time to layer up! Using a simple app, e-commerce owners can reach outside of Google’s network when showing ads to retargeted users.
What this means is that is the user clicks on an independent site not under the Google Display Network, your ads can still be shown to the user! This layered retargeting tactic broadens appeal, and the numbers make a clear case for its effectiveness.
There are currently ~2 million websites linked to the Google Display Network… but there are over 200 million active websites across the web! So, by layering on external ad retargeting on top of Google’s remarketing option, you reach roughly 198 million more sites with your digital marketing. After considering these figures, there is a strong case to be made that layered ad retargeting could drastically increase your sales on Shopify.
For a quick solution to “layered ad retargeting,” Ad360’s Menadex media offering connects your e-commerce promotions to every active website on the internet. That way, your store can show ads to retargeted customers on websites that your competitors cannot reach, giving you the advantage in brand exposure and customer awareness.

According to merchants, the number one difficulty they face is the complexity of online advertising and the heavy investments required to get results. Newly launched business owners frequently cite lack of time, resources, and marketing knowledge as the primary causes for the lack of website visitors and buyers.
That’s a severe problem, evidenced by a shockingly high failure rate:
more than 90% of e-commerce startups have to shut down in their first six months of existence, according to a 2019 MarketingSignals study. The two most frequent reasons are “Poor online marketing” and “Lack of online visibility.”
Unfortunately, advertising methods which are both affordable and very effective, such as retargeting, are often unknown or deemed too complex to implement by small businesses. Retargeting allows showing ads to specific users interested in a merchant’s website and products. This advertising technique, well known by major brands and professional marketers, is not employed by most small businesses. That’s a significant missed opportunity, as it can reduce advertising costs while increasing sales by more than 50%.
Ad360 aims to change this fact and make it easier than ever for any business, regardless of its size, to get started with Retargeting and grow their business.
In addition, for the first time, Shopify merchants can manage through Ad360’s centralized dashboard all their advertising channels and platforms, including search engines, social media, and millions of independent websites and mobile apps.

If you are a hardworking store owner just a tad frustrated with your digital promotion, keep reading!! Because while most Shopify business owners know how to release ads on tech platforms like Google or Facebook, many ads end up not reaching their intended target.
To help explain the difficulty of running successful online ads, think of the old analogy:
“It’s as hard as finding a needle in a haystack.”
That’s what generating truly great customers feels like – where do you start as a local business owner? The needle is your ideal customer base or promising lead… the hay is all the people you have to sift through before finding your golden geese.
I mean hell, there are billions of people surfing Google and Facebook…. How do you narrow that field down to those people most interested in your Shopify store?
The answer is Ad Retargeting!
Automated ad retargeting software saves willingly given customer info of any customer who even glances at your Shopify store. If they visited once, the odds are MUCH higher they will consider visiting again! After that, business owners can send out ads – not only across all major social media platforms but also all over the web and in mobile apps – advertising specifically to individuals who have already visited and expressed interest in your store! It’s like having software that helps you find all the needles in a haystack for lead generation… in like 5 minutes. Set up correctly, this is the remarkable efficiency ad retargeting offers business owners.
To extend our analogy, ad retargeting does not only extract out all the needles with ease – the targeted nature of it means you don’t even have to buy the bale of hay! You can just walk up and extract all the best potential customers who visited your Shopify store. And you save all the money, resources, and energy you would have put toward users online who, in reality, simply aren’t a part of your ideal customer base.
In other words, without ad retargeting, Shopify store owners end up paying for ads displayed on pages where 99% of the viewers are uninterested in your store – “cold calling.” Ad retargeting allows you to channel all those resources to that 1% who are very likely to become regular customers/love your store offerings! By concentrating on winning over that 1% already interested, ad retargeting can improve customer lead generation efficiency by 1,046%.
