Facebook retargeting

Similar to how it functions on other platforms, Facebook retargeting uses a pixel that tracks site visitors, so if they leave without making a purchase, they’ll be presented with related ads the next time they log into Facebook to help increase the chances of conversion in the future.

How to use Facebook retargeting

To run a Facebook retargeting campaign:

  • Install your Facebook Pixel
  • Go to your Facebook business user interface
  • Choose Audiences from the drop-down box
  • Click on Create Audience, then Custom Audience
  • Choose Website Traffic
  • Decide which activity should trigger ads. For instance, you can choose for people to see your ad when they visit your website, see a specific page or haven’t
  • Come to your profile in a certain amount of time.
  • Design your ad

Best practices for Facebook retargeting

As with any kind of advertising campaign, it’s essential to have a strategy in mind. Making the most of your Facebook retargeting strategy means tracking your campaigns carefully with a tool, zeroing in on the right audience, and optimizing your ads.
