Whether you’re using an online ad network or retargeting, having a successful marketing campaign is crucial for online advertising and business in general. How do you know which method of marketing is right for you though?
There really is no wrong answer to this question as it is more about the preference of each business and how they want to go about getting their brand seen. Each form of marketing campaign provides users with different capabilities and features geared towards fully getting the most out of marketing. The decision on which to use, though will depend on the user and if they want to use just one, or all different forms of marketing.
Using online advertising networks is simple; providing the middle man and connecting your brand with sites that want to advertise you. It’s an effective method and gets your ad out there, but of course like any campaign, there are drawbacks. With an online ad network, you’ll be paying for your advertisement placement no matter what, even if it’s targeting uninterested viewers.
With retargeting and remarketing, the increase of conversion rate is great because it targets those users only showing interest in your product and brand in the first place. Of course it could seem repetitive in the eyes of the consumer if you don’t put a frequency cap on how often the ad appears, but often times, a perfect solution and balance will increase profits.
So whether it’s paid inclusion, online ad networks or remarketing/retargeting campaigns, be sure to do the research on whichever marketing plan(s) you intend to use.
Figure in costs, success rates and other numbers into your research and it will help determine the right options for your business to get the ultimate exposure it needs in order to strive in a fast-paced industry.
