How To Setup Dynamic Remarketing Campaign

Before setting up a dynamic remarketing campaign, it is important to understand it at first. 

What is the dynamic remarketing campaign and why do you need to set up?

Dynamic remarketing campaigns are those campaigns where you target those audiences who have visited your website before. 

For example:-

You have an apparel website. A number of people browse your website online. Some people like shoes, some people like shirts and some people like purses. Everyone is seeing and interested in different products. 

Now you want to retarget these audiences with what products they are browsing on your website, here dynamic remarketing campaign works. Because these campaigns dynamically retarget the audience with their specific product that they are browsing on your website in the display network.

Remember, dynamic remarketing campaigns work only on the display network.

Benefits of dynamic remarketing campaigns:

  • Scaling campaign.
  • High ROAS or ROI.
  • Higher chances of conversion.
  • Recapture the previous audience. 

Dynamic remarketing is really helpful if you target the right audience intent wise. Like you set up two audiences. 

The first one is all visitors and the second one is who clicks on the check out button but does not buy. If you target these two audiences, first you must need to understand the behavior of customers in which the audience is more valuable. If you bid normally or the same on these two audiences then you are making a big mistake because the second audience intent to buy is higher than the first one.

So how do you settle down these audiences? Simply bid high on the second audience as compared to the first one.

Remember – Not every visitor is your customer. Target those audiences with more focus who will be your customer.


Set audience and bids by intent wise.

You must need to configure the setting for a dynamic remarketing campaign. So, let’s configure settings first then set up a dynamic remarketing campaign.  First, go to the tools and settings tab and click on the audience manager under the shared library.
