Retargeting Campaigns

AdRoll Retargeting helps you reach people who interact with your business online.

Use retargeting to:

  • Bring back visitors who didn't convert.
  • Run promotions.
  • Let existing customers know what's new. 

How it Works

It all starts with a cookie. Think of a website that you have an account with — for example, AdRoll. Have you ever noticed that once you’ve signed in, you don’t have to sign in again the next time you visit on that same browser? That's all thanks to the magic of cookies: tiny data packets stored in your browser that turn the Internet into your Internet.

That’s how retargeting works. When someone visits your website, your AdRoll Pixel places a cookie in their browser. As long as that cookie remains in their browser, we’ll recognize that they’ve been to your website and help you reconnect.

Note: For retargeting campaigns to run smoothly, the minimum amount of visitors per targeted Audience segment is 100 (the number of visitors per segment can be checked in your Dashboard > Audience tab). The time required to collect this number depends on your website traffic.
