Facebook limits the maximum amount of time that people will stay in a custom audience, based on website traffic, to 180 days. After this time period, those in the website custom audience will be removed unless they revisit the website. You can stay top-of-mind by simply creating a custom audience of people who visited your URL within the past few months and run remarketing ads before they’re removed by Facebook.
If you are on WordPress, you may already know how to install the code. If you do not, I would suggest installing a plug-in called “header and footer scripts.” This plug-in will allow you to easily paste code into the header or footer on your website. This is the plug-in that I’m using below and is located under the settings tab after you install it.
You’ll have to add an additional piece of code to the back-end of your website, but once you do, your Facebook reports will let you know detailed information about the behavior of your visitors and how it’s affecting your campaign ROI. And you can tie your pixel to fire on those behaviors and, then create remarketing campaigns based on those events.
There are a number of different ways to use Facebook retargeting, from showing ads of products a user has shown interest in on your website to promoting a special offer to recent site visitors to incite sales. Every business will use Facebook retargeting differently, depending on their business and advertising goals. For example, a local yoga studio could use Facebook ads as a reminder to those who last registered for a class two weeks ago to encourage return customers. Facebook Live: Do you know who’s watching?
Group 3: People who make it all the way through the checkout process to your “thank you” page. The Facebook pixel on your “thank you” page will add its visitors to another list, which you can exclude from your other targeting groups to ensure you’re not reaching people with Facebook ads for an offer they’ve already claimed. You can also create an entirely new campaign to cross-sell them on another course or add-on, or even use this group to create a lookalike audience of your ideal customer to find more people likely to purchase your product or service.
