Maximizing Returns Through Strategic Retargeting: The Cerulean Social Blueprint for Omnichannel Success

Hello, it's Bryan again!


In the fast-paced realm of digital marketing, retargeting isn't just an option – it's a cornerstone strategy for engaging customers and maximizing returns. At Cerulean Social, we've honed a comprehensive approach that integrates retargeting across all critical digital platforms, ensuring our clients capitalize on every potential conversion opportunity.

Understanding the Significance of Retargeting: Retargeting is crucial for businesses seeking to nurture leads effectively. It's the art of reconnecting with users who have interacted with your brand but haven't converted yet. These users might have viewed a product, added items to a cart, or engaged with your content. Retargeting serves as a reminder, nudging them towards completing their purchase or interaction.

Topics Covered in Detail:

  1. Why Retargeting Often Reaches Only a Fraction of the Audience:

    • One challenge many businesses face is the limited reach of their retargeting campaigns. This issue often arises from a narrow targeting scope. At Cerulean Social, we advocate for a broad yet strategic targeting approach, encompassing all geographical locations where your customers are based. This global perspective ensures that your retargeting efforts aren’t just confined to a small segment but have a worldwide impact.
  2. Effective Budget Allocation for Retargeting Campaigns:

    • Budgeting for retargeting campaigns is more an art than a science. A rule we've found effective is allocating $10 for every 10,000 audience members. This guideline ensures a balanced approach, allowing for optimal reach without overspending. It's a strategy that ensures efficiency and effectiveness, particularly for small to medium-sized businesses looking to get the most out of their advertising dollar.
  3. Facebook Retargeting and Campaign Budget Optimization (CBO) Strategy:

    • With Facebook's CBO, we've observed significant improvements in campaign performance, especially when paired with retargeting strategies. CBO automates budget distribution across ad sets, focusing on those delivering the best results. This means your budget is continually optimized for performance, reducing waste and increasing ROI.
    • We've applied this strategy across various industries, witnessing remarkable results. For instance, a lead-generation business achieved a 17X ROAS within 30 days by leveraging our CBO retargeting strategy. An eCommerce client saw an 8X ROAS, highlighting the versatility and effectiveness of this approach.
  4. Building and Executing a CBO Retargeting Strategy:

    • Creating Custom Audience Ad Sets: Start by developing ad sets targeting users based on their interaction timelines - 30 days, 60 days, and 180 days. This segmentation allows for more personalized and relevant retargeting.
    • Selecting High-Performing Creatives: Include your top-performing ads in each set. These are the creatives that have historically shown the highest engagement and conversion rates.
    • Smart Budgeting: For audiences smaller than 2,000, a daily budget of $2 is sufficient, whereas for audiences up to 5,000, we recommend $10 daily. This conservative budgeting approach is surprisingly effective, allowing comprehensive coverage without excessive spending.
  5. The Advantage of Partnering with Cerulean Social:

    • While the CBO retargeting strategy alone can yield significant results, partnering with Cerulean Social elevates your campaign's potential.
