What is Retargeting and Remarketing?

When a customer visits a particular website and leaves it without buying a particular product or service, then a powerful strategy that is implemented to reach potential customers is termed as remarketing. It is a highly used strategy for transforming visits to the conversion rates of the website.

The approach of retargeting is quite similar with the remarketing as both of these techniques use cookies to follow visitor. Retargeting involves sending automated emails, SMS reminders, push notifications and email reminders; for convincing users to buy from them. Alike remarketing, retargeting doesn’t follow visitors everywhere on the web through placing ads. Rather, in this technique users are communicated directly with the products, visitors actually wishes to buy.
