With schools everywhere back in session, it’s the perfect time to brush up on some marketing terms you’ve seen bandied about. Let’s start with “remarketing.”
In a nutshell, remarketing is the approach of targeting visitors who came and then left your site. Remarketing aims to bring them back to your site with highly customized ads.

It’s incredible that traditional online ads convert at an industry average of just four percent.

Remarketing works with all channels of traffic – search, display, SEO, CPA, email, natural.
