What is Retargeting Tuesday? Tips for eCommerce

Cyber Week 2017 projects $8.5 billion in consumer spending from Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday. But with Black Friday cart abandonment rates near 70%, brands still have huge potential to capitalize.

Coming directly after Cyber Monday, Retargeting Tuesday is a strategic time to motivate lost customers with a second, third, and sometimes fourth chance to convert.

Frequency Caps

To truly increase your CTR, we recommend capping at 2 per day and changing your creatives every 3-4 months.  You can also bid less on users who abandoned from your homepage, as they are not your “highest value” customers… Yet.

Landing Pages

Retargeted customers are three times more likely to click your ad than people who have never interacted with your business. Creating landing pages for your retargeting ads refocuses customers on returning to your specific products. For your headline, try “We missed you” or “Couldn’t stay away?” to see an increase in CTR.

Make sure you show the specific products, deals and branding your customer was browsing before abandonment. Also include strong CTAs tailored to where your customer is in their buyer’s journey, such as “continue shopping,” “get the look,” and “buy now.”
