Utilizing Retargeting Messaging in Display Ads

How Incorporating Retargeting Messaging Increased Site Visit Rate by 766%

Retargeting Messaging in Display: This test found that incorporating retargeting messaging in your retargeting-specific display ads helps dramatically improve display performance across the board.

Retargeting display ads are served to users who have visited a property’s website at least once before. The messaging used for this audience was “Still Interested?”, and this messaging helped capture the user’s interest and remind them that they have previously visited the apartment’s website. This specific messaging helps drive additional users to the site because the ad feels like it was tailored to that specific user, and this is proven by the 766% increase in site visit rate for ads using retargeting messaging.
