Recipes for Shopify

Alert: We’re rolling this feature out slowly, and it is currently available to select AdRoll customers using the Shopify integration. Sign up here to be the first to know when it is available for your account.

What are Recipes? 

AdRoll recipes are automated sequences set in motion by a specific trigger and include one or more steps. They make it easy to nurture relationships with prospects and customers over the course of their lifecycle with automated messaging across ads on the open web, email, and social channels such as Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and TikTok.

How it Works

We've combined a recommended list of ingredients to help you achieve your desired marketing goal. For example, the browse abandonment recipe includes a web ad campaign, a social ad campaign (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, TikTok), and an email campaign that all target the same audience and optimize towards the same goal of re-engaging browse abandoners.

Create a Recipe

  1. From the homepage on your dashboard, navigate to the Follow a Marketing Recipe section and browse available recipes.

Browse Abandonment Recipe

Create Retargeting Campaigns across Ads and Email to turn browsers into customers. 

How it Works

When a visitor bounces from your website, AdRoll triggers Automated Emails and launches display ads reminding them of your brand. Pairing ads and email together gives browsers the gentle nudge they need to turn into customers.

You only need a few things to get started:

  • Your website connected to AdRoll
  • Familiarize yourself with how to build and edit emails for your different campaigns using our easy, no-code editor. Simply navigate to your Email Template Library to explore
  • Complete Email Authentication to improve your deliverability. This will tell inbox providers your brand can be trusted, making it more likely your emails will make it to the inbox.

Features

Shoppers who are influenced by both ads and email are two times as likely to convert as shoppers who see ads alone!

Our browse abandonment recipe includes:

  • Web Ads
  • Social Ads across channels such as Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and TikTok
  • Emails

Cart Abandonment Recipe

Drive visitors with products in their carts back to your website and over the finish line to complete a purchase by following the Convert Cart Abandoners Marketing Recipe.

How it Works

When a customer walks away from an item in their cart, AdRoll triggers an email showing the item left in the cart and launches display ads reminding them of the product they just abandoned. Pairing ads and emails together give shoppers the gentle nudge they need to finish checking out.

You only need a few things to get started:

  • Your website is connected to AdRoll via our Shopify integration. 
  • Ad and email creative
Note: Depending on your e-commerce platform or existing email provider, you may already have a built-in cart abandonment flow that is running.

You must pause or cancel any of these default platform cart abandonment sequences in order for our cart abandonment recipe to work.
