It is a common occurrence that a majority of the people who visit a particular website bounce back in seconds. In fact, statistics have shown that only less than a percent of people who visit your website actually result in making a transaction. If you think it is hard to get people to your website for the first time, it is harder the next time as they already know what they will be served with largely. But the best part of the story is that it is not impossible and there are ways to get back your lost traffic.
Remarketing efforts are largely aimed at showing ads to all those people who did visit your website or even your mobile app but did not convert in sales. In other words, it is retargeting by means of ads to which this particular audience might get drawn to. In addition, it also helps in creating a general awareness of your brand. So, broadly stating, the ultimate goal of your remarketing strategies and efforts can be split across three verticals:
Looking at the above, it is amply clear that you should have a clear aim in place before embarking on any remarketing strategy as the results and targeting in each case will be different.

There has to be clarity in thought and understanding the needs of the audience in order to reach them. The Latter will help you design typically customized pages in line with the needs of your audience. Another vital point is to decide which network should be used to reach your audience.
It has been found that when people are retargeted, the chances of their conversion increases by 70 percent. So why did they not convert in the first go? There can be many reasons around this. For example, the person may want to explore other options or maybe is not satisfied with the solution or was simply busy at that moment. The reasons for the client could be many but the repercussions are the same for your website which is a no conversion. When a remarketing campaign is launched, it acts as a subtle reminder for the person that you have the right solution and value them as visitors and would love to see them again. In a research conducted by WordStream showed that remarketing is highly effective i.e. more the number of times a person sees an ad, higher is the conversion rate.
