Every advertiser is talking about re-marketing – but what exactly does that mean? This session will cut through the hype and present practical re-marketing tactics advertisers can use to boost customer acquisition and sales. With advances in semantic, behavioral, and geo-location technologies, re-marketing has gone beyond just re-targeting site visitors with relevant ads as they surf around the web. Today’s re-marketing technologies leverage artificial intelligence and profiling technologies to actually find and serve ads to web users who have never been to your site. Come learn how to combine web analytics, CRM, social, and search data to target specific ads to highly-accurate audience segments. This approach enables marketers to “see the actual consumer through the cookies”.

In this session, marketers will learn:

  • What is ‘remarketing’ and what different types of re-marketing are there?
  • The differences between behavioral, geo-location, and semantic re-marketing technologies and how to implement them for maximum effectiveness.
  • How to leverage web analytics, CRM, social, and search data to define hundreds of highly-specific audience profiles – down to micro-segments such as such as “most likely to buy X brand rain boots for men during the next four days” instead of “male shopper in New York City”.
  • How to work with re-marketing technology companies, ad networks, and publishers to ensure ads are targeted to the right audiences at every step of the purchase process (initial keyword search, site visits, web browsing, further keyword searches, final purchase etc.)
  • A case study in how TiVo used next-generation re-marketing to boost customer acquisition and sales – resulting in the highest clickthrough rate and the highest impression-to-conversion ratio of all of TiVo’s online advertising campaigns that year.
  • Next advances in re-marketing: re-targeting video ads; real-time, on-site re-targeting; re-targeting for branding; and advanced prospect scoring.
