Should you Remarket with Twitter?

Retargeting allows advertisers to recapture website visitors- increasing the likelihood of a click through and conversion. Remarketing through social sites like Twitter expands product and site reach fexposure for users who engage on social.

  • This is likely due to Twitter being more content focused than other social sites.

    • If you are considering Twitter ads, start with retargeting then explore regular Twitter stream ads.

    As a company we have seen more conversions and lower CPAs with Twitter re-targeting than we have seen with standard Twitter Ads. This should be pretty standard, but the difference in the performance is pretty significant, when you compare the two.
