A Beginner’s Guide to Remarketing Jargon
If you need help making sense of online marketing terminologies, particularly remarketing jargon, confuse yourself no more!
Here are a few of the most common terminologies you would find in our copy and in other Remarketing resources:
When a visitor adds a product to their online shopping cart but doesn’t go through with the purchase – this refers to an ‘abandoned cart’.
Banners (Banner Ads)
Banner Advertisements are graphic images located at the uppermost part of a webpage. Their prominent location catches the attention of visitors, urging them to click the advertisement.
A ‘conversion’ would depend on what you’re trying to aim on your website. If you are an online business, this could refer to your sales or commissions. If you are an informational blog, this could refer to complimentary reports or e-books. A conversion could also apply to completed surveys.
Your conversion rate is a metric which measures the numbers of visitors you get by the number of conversions made. For instance, if you have 1000 visitors on your landing page and 100 of these visitors signed up to your free report, your conversion rate is 10%.
