Posted by Marina Popov on Tue, Dec 10, 2019 @ 09:27 AM


Every day, Australians are browsing the internet; shopping for clothes, looking at new recipes to cook for dinner, or doing research about digital marketing content. Every time we do, it seems that the Internet knows exactly as we're about to leave a page. Many of us have probably had the thought - "Am I being followed?" Well... maybe we are!

For example, have you ever seen a pop on your screen just as you are about to exit a site that says something like “Sign up to our newsletter and receive a 10% off your next purchase!” Well, that’s an example of onsite retargeting, and further proof that we are being followed (in the least creepy way possible).

So, What Is The Definition Of Onsite Retargeting?

Modern retargeting is aimed at turning window shoppers into customers because most visitors to your website leave without making a purchase.

Onsite retargeting is about tracking your visitors behaviour, and if their behaviour shows they are about to leave your site, relevant advertisements are displayed on other sites such as Google and Facebook to bring these users back, and ensuring they’re retargeted at the right time with a secondary message to stay onsite.

The point of onsite retargeting is to further enhance and increase website conversions for your business.
