Matt Stafford Oct 06, 2021

Welcome to Episode 074 of Optimized Ecommerce – 4,000% Return On Investment: Copy Our Retargeting Strategy. I’m your host, Tanner Larsson, CEO of BGS.

BGS means Build Grow Scale! It is a community that we founded where eCommerce entrepreneurs and physical product sellers come to learn how to take their businesses to the next level.

Here’s just a taste of what we talked about today:

Understanding Retargeting

  • Retargeting is a cookie based technology that uses simple Javascript code to anonymously “follow” your audience all over the web.
  • Retargeting Services We Use:
    • PerfectAudience.com
    • Facebook
    • Adroll
    • SiteScout
    • Google
    • Youtube
  • Aside from tracking, retargeting will have the most dramatic impact on your conversions of anything you do.
  • To leverage retargeting to the fullest you will have several different retargeting campaigns running at the same time…all the time.
  • Retargeting will be used to improve your business in these 4 ways:
    • Converting more visitors into prospects
    • Converting more prospects into tripwire/front end sales
    • Converting more customers into repeat purchases
    • Launching new products/marketing complementary products
    • Secondary benefit: enhanced branding

We choose pixels over emails.

  • Pixels offer guaranteed exposure.
  • Can’t hide from our ads.
  • You can hide from our emails.
  • This does not mean we don’t build email lists, but if we have the option of trying to get either an email address or a pixel, we’re gonna go for the pixel and direct to sale first.
  • Can always get the email address later.

Start with a perfect audience.

  • Best all around network to get started on.
  • Can be tough to get initially approved.
  • Allows you to build lists and retarget on the following networks:
    • Facebook (right side & newsfeed)
    • Web – Display Network
    • Twitter
    • Dynamic Product Retargeting

We also discussed a few other fun topics, including:

  • How to get approved on Perfect Audience and how to run Perfect Audience ads for any website?
  • Putting retargeting all together and maxing it out.
  • Sequential retargeting and sequential setup.
  • How to use retargeting to drive sales when you can’t run PPC ads for your product?

But you’ll have to watch or listen to the episode to hear about those!
