A few years ago to retarget or remarket to visitors to your site, subscribers on your email lists, or your customers was difficult. Today with the amount of options you have before you that’s not the case. As you’ll see in this list there’s quite a few options for implementing retargeting in your marketing.
Retargeting done right has a quite few benefits. First, you’re able to recapture people’s attention, recover potential cart abandonment customers, and even capture the attention of your existing customers across multiple platforms. As with all advertising re-targeting or remarketing should be done with care and an eye towards providing value to your audience.
We use retargeting in our own business so we are familiar with quite a few of these platforms. In putting together this list we looked at a couple core features that a essentially must haves:
- Ease of use – Is the platform user friendly? Just about every solution you’ll find on this list is intuitive, although some have many different options and steps that do take effort and time to further understand.
- 3rd party data providers – When most people think about remarketing they think about their own audience. With many of these platforms you can tap into 3rd party audiences that allow you to find related prospects or consumers. The top notch platforms like SiteScout will integrate closely with these data providers while others will just allow you to upload data sets.
- Ad placement reach – In this multi-screen world it’s increasingly important to be able to reach people across devices and platforms. While most retargeting solutions say they can reach your audience across screens you’ll find some of them are better than others.
- Segmentation – Another important aspect of remarketing is being able to sperate out audiences, prospects, and your customers. With good segmentation you are able to deliver the right message to the right audience, without it your basically wasting effort and resources.
- Analytics – Finally tracking the success of your efforts is important. Some of these solutions have analytics baked right into their platform. Others integrate with your existing analytic solutions. For this list we just ensured that analytics was an important piece of their platform.
One more important point about this list. Most of these platforms offer more than just retargeting solutions. Some are full DSP’s, offer RTB (real-time bidding) solutions, and distributed advertising across multi-channels.
Now onto the list:
Need a tool that's user-friendly, but can also generate actual results? SiteScout DSP offers an advertising solution just for that.
With this platform you can easily create and control retargeting, mobile, rich ad and other types of ad campaigns of your choice.
Using a sophisticated RTB (Real Time Bidding) platform you have quite a few advertising options.
Using special features in this tool you can learn more about what your audience is interested in by knowing what they read online. Then put into play contextual targeting that enables you to show up with your ad on the right page, that is where your ad campaign will be relevant. Geographic targeting lets you target your prospects not just by country, region or city, but by their zip code. Demographic targeting makes sure that only the audience you want to target gets to see your ads.
This is one of our favorite advertising platforms.

This is not the most widely used retargeting platform in the world for no reason as it offers plenty of useful features, all wrapped up nicely in a simple-to-use package. Their platform is intuitive, easy to implement and probably one you've already heard of.
Perfect Audience is a platform that's in the top tier of retargeting solutions.
So far the only thing you could do with lost shoppers is to wave a virtual handkerchief at them while they walk (or click) away. Perfect Audience puts a halt to that by showing you how to retarget your visitors on web, Facebook or Twitter and show them ads for the products they looked at.
This is something they call “easy dynamic retargeting” and it lets you bring back customers you thought were lost to you across the big display exchanges.
Don't worry, they also have a limit and won't let you overburden your prospects with your ads. You can set up a daily and monthly frequency at which you want your ads to appear to your customers, including creating segments for those user behaviors you want to take advantage of.
“In with the new, out with the old.” Conversions, click through rates, cost per clicks, click counts and more “goodies” you need are being regularly updated every two hours. What this means is that you can track consumers according to where they've been and what actions they've taken in their browsers.
Perfect Audience is one of the easiest and quickest ways to get started with retargeting.
