And that's not all - to help you measure how effective all your paid marketing efforts are, we just released our conversion tracking product in beta πŸ™Œ. So you'll be able to tie everything together:

  • Measure ROI across every channel by tracking ad conversions, costs, and revenue in one place
  • See each touchpoint along a customer's path to conversion, from click to conversion
  • Adjust your marketing budget to invest only in campaigns and channels that convert

To give you some ideas πŸ’‘ for getting started with our link retargeting features, below are 5 ways our most successful customers increase ad CTR and conversions, find new customers, and get the most out of every dollar spent on ads.

1. Amazon sellers (or eBay, Walmart, Etsy)

πŸ’¬ "PixelMe helps me retarget Amazon prospects. I don't know how I could have done it without their tool." - Gregoire D, Head of Growth, Wisepops

Elixir Amazon store

⚽ The goal: Thousands of our customers are always looking for new ways to reach people who visited their Amazon store in places where they’re most active. Particularly retargeting Amazon store visitors with Facebook Ads to get more sales.

πŸ™ˆ The problem: It’s not currently possible to add Facebook or Google retargeting pixels to traditional ads, and entice visitors across Amazon pages to come back.

πŸ”‘ How to retarget Amazon store visitors:

  • Send people to your Amazon store from ads or social media with PixelMe links.
  • PixelMe embeds ad retargeting pixels to every link you share, so you can build a targeted custom audience of people who visited your store.
  • Then, retarget these store visitors with ads from any channel, such as Facebook and Google to drive more sales!

2. Kickstarter creators

Kickstarter

⚽ The goal: Across the board, our Kickstarter creators want to reach people who visited their Kickstarter campaign and showed interest in their new products, services, or projects as a more effective means to reach their crowdfunding goals.

πŸ™ˆ The problem: It's not possible to add advertising pixels to a Kickstarter page, so it's hard to retarget potential Kickstarter backers with Facebook Ads (or ads from any other platform).

πŸ”‘ How to retarget Kickstarter campaign visitors:

  • Share your Kickstarter campaign page in social channels, emails, and ads with PixelMe links.
  • Each PixelMe link includes any ad retargeting pixels you want to include (Facebook, Google, Twitter) so you can build a custom audience of people who visited your Kickstarter page.
  • Then, retarget people who clicked on your links with Facebook Ads or other ad platforms. Bring them back to your Kickstarter campaign to get more backers!

3. Musicians

Jeremy Loops

⚽ The goal: Every music artist we’ve talked to wants more effective ways to promote their music and get more sales. Retargeting people who checked out their music or visited their concert listings would help them more cost effectively find more fans that already showed interest.

πŸ™ˆ The problem: Musicians all promote their content on third party sites, such as music platforms (iTunes, YouTube, Spotify, Deezer) and event platforms (Ticketmaster, Bandsintown, Songkick). This means they can't retarget these potential fans, since they don't own those sites and can't add their ad pixels to them.

🎡 How to retarget potential music fans:

  • Share PixelMe links to your music (e.g. iTunes album) and events (e.g. concert on Ticketmaster) across all your promotional channels (ads, social media, newsletters, music blogs, emails).
  • Every link you share includes your ad pixels, so you can retarget people who clicked on those links from any ad platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Google).
  • Then, retarget and convert potential fans who clicked on your links with Facebook & Twitter Ads!

4. Medium users

πŸ’¬ "I tried using several shorteners (Bitly, Owly) and PixelMe is the one to pick because it lets you add a tracking pixel for remarketing. This is really good if you want to retarget links that don’t go to your site or that you normally cannot pixel.” - Ale R., Editor, Publishing startup

JotForm Medium account

⚽ The goal: Our customers love Medium, as it's their go-to platform for writing, sharing company news and publishing long-form content. As part of this, they want more effective ways to turn their Medium readers into customers.

πŸ™ˆ The problem: It's not possible to easily retarget people who read a Medium article, or add retargeting pixels (e.g. from Facebook) to a story.

πŸ”‘ How to retarget Medium users:

  • Use PixelMe links when sharing your Medium articles in social media and ads, as well as directly in your Medium articles.
  • Each PixelMe link includes your ad retargeting pixels (Facebook, Google, Twitter) so you can build a custom audience of people who read your article, or clicked on links within it.
  • Retarget your Medium readers with Facebook Ads or other ad platforms. Bring these engaged readers to your website to convert them!

5. B2B & B2C companies

πŸ’¬ β€œPixelMe saves me 1/3 of all my dollars spent on Facebook for lead generation, because of their ability to pixel specific links.” - Zeb Pirkey, VP Marketing, dodl.es

Dodl.es

⚽ The goal: This final use case includes pretty much any industry 😊 since we're all in the business of finding new customers. Majority of you likely share content from other businesses, such as relevant industry news and interesting topics, or PR articles you're featured in. This is a great lead gen tactic to save time from having to constantly generate your own content. However, the missing link is knowing who read those articles and being able to reach them again.

πŸ™ˆ The problem: Retargeting people who visited third party content you share isn't possible with regular ads, as you can't add pixels to a site you don't own.

πŸ”‘ How to retarget people who visited third party content:

  • Curate 3rd party content that appeals to your target audience.
  • Use PixelMe to create shortened links to this content, embedded with your ad retargeting pixels.
  • Share these links in your social media posts and ads to grow a retargeting audience of people who clicked on your links.
  • Launch new ads bringing this engaged audience to your website, and turn them into new customers!

So there you have a sampling of the most common use cases for using PixelMe to retarget and convert your visitors!

Hopefully your creative ideas are now flowing, as these are just some amongst many different ways you can use PixelMe to grow your business. And if you're like any other marketer sharing content to other sites, or looking for an easy way to retarget people visiting your own links, we have just what you need πŸš€.
