Facebook ad retargeting

Many publishers are doing cool things with retargeting, but we want to call out Facebook’s official launch of Custom Audiences from Your Website as a real game-changer. By simply appending Facebook’s tracking pixel, any marketer can now segment website visitors into target audiences and re-engage them with highly targeted messages across the world’s largest social network. Even better, Custom Audiences from Your Website actually extends beyond desktop, making it the first true cross-device retargeting solution.

The beauty of retargeting ads is that they can be run on a continuous loop. You’ll have new people finding your site and abandoning their cart every day, but when you use the Pixel, you don’t have to update your Custom Audiences manually. They’ll simply filter their way into your existing retargeting audience — and therefore, see your retargeting campaign.
For the Facebook retargeting pixel to work, it needs to be installed on the back-end of all the relevant pages you want to track, create audiences, and remarket with. If you’re using Facebook ads to drive visitors to a click-through post-click landing page where you sell a course, you might want to install it on that page, the following checkout page, and the “thank you” page after that. Here’s why:

Facebook pixel / app events: You need a Facebook pixel implemented on your website, and use standard events to report which product IDs from your catalog are being viewed, added to cart and purchased. If you want to retarget people in a mobile app, you can set up app events. If you're not sure how to set up a pixel or app events, consider reaching out to a website developer.
Facebook Retargeting Ads cost the same as other Facebook advertising campaigns. Facebook requires a minimum daily budget of $1, or the cost of two clicks. This means if your cost per click is $2.50, then your minimum daily budget will be $5. However, the average cost per click on Facebook is $1.50.

Simply put, don’t ask people to give you information you won’t be using anyway. For example, if you sell apparel online, you probably don’t need to know the person’s job title or relationship status. Keep your form simple to attract more subscribers, or add extra fields if you’re okay with fewer email subscribers but more qualified leads with higher interest.
To find such visitors who might need some help with their purchase, you must look at other signs that signal hesitation. For example, you can specifically target visitors who’ve spent the most time browsing your website. Additionally, you can also add people who’ve visited specific pages on your website such as your FAQs, Terms & Conditions or Pricing pages.
Publishers that have convinced users to create profiles and sign in with them on different devices have a similar advantage. But few publishers are able to do this. If you play fantasy football on Yahoo, you have to create a profile and use it for both the desktop and mobile app experiences, thus making you visible across those devices. That’s ostensibly true for paywalled publishers that require subscribers to sign in across devices, too. For most publishers, though, the best cross-device tracking option is to partner with an ad tech company and give advertisers an educated guess.
