You probably use pay-per-click advertising already, but have you considered display remarketing? Remarketing is a pay-per-click advertising technique that shows your ad to people who have already visited your website. These ads are designed to remind people to visit your site again. They can show up on webpages, mobile apps and search results. Remarketing makes sense for many reasons, but the biggest benefit is the cost.
The price for remarketing advertisement is often just a tenth the cost of standard PPC ads. Just as with regular PPC ads, you only pay when a user actually clicks on the ad. If no one clicks on the ad, it will still display, giving your users a visual reminder of your site at no cost to you.
Other Benefits of Remarketing
It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to increase sales activity, improve brand awareness or just drive traffic to your website; remarketing should be an essential component of your advertising strategy. Keep reading for some benefits of display remarketing:
Customers See Your Ads at the Right Time

These people are likely ready to make a purchase already, so your advertisements are displayed at just the right time.
Minimize Your Costs Automatically
The Google auction feature automatically calculates the optimal price for the ad you want to display. You’ll place more ads for less money.
