CRO and remarketing

Once you have gained visitors to your website, it’s vital that you have efficient conversion rate optimisation (CRO) strategies in place to gain traction, increase leads and improve your bottom line. CRO is not just about making small adjustments to a landing page, it’s also about testing variations of your copy, altering your forms and developing a thorough strategy in order to develop meaningful conversion gains.
With 3 out of 4 consumers now noticing retargeting adverts (Invespcro), remarketing has become a solution to reach your target audience and increase conversion rates. Remarketing works as a tool to advertise your services to people who are already familiar with your company, giving them a gentle nudge to convert. Using remarketing as part of your CRO strategy increases brand exposure, increases engagement and creates a better return on investment. In fact, customers who see retargeted ads are 70% more likely to convert on your website.


Conversion rate optimisation (CRO) is the process of increasing the amount of website visitors who take a desired action. This desired action may be anything, from filling in a form and enquiring about your services to becoming a customer. The CRO process involves understanding how your visitors are using your website, what actions they are taking and what is preventing them from completing your goals.

The remarketing process involves tracking your audience’s online movements and remarketing to them with specific adverts. When someone visits your website, a few lines of code will drop an anonymous cookie in that user’s browser. This cookie will track the site visit, and when the user leaves your website, the cookie will tell your ad platform. This will then leave carefully targeted ads in the browser, nudging the customers to come back to your website and convert.

How EDGE approach CRO & Remarketing

  • 01


    Segmenting your audience lists allows for high-value remarketing. Factors such as time on site, number of pages visited, and specific page visits all count as important factors to consider when segmenting your audience. The more specific you can be when separating out your lists, the more specific and personalised your marketing can be. Driven by data, we will start aligning your audience into likelihood of conversion in order to allocate your budget most effectively.

    Different pages on your website will offer your audience something unique. For example, if customers are adding items to their shopping cart, but abandoning it, you will need to encourage conversions in a different way to someone who has only visited the Meet the Team page. Using this data combined with your customer personas, we will pinpoint the areas of your buyer’s journey where key decisions will be made. This allows us to develop a marketing funnel and provide your audience with the necessary information needed depending in order to encourage conversion and finalise the process.

  • 03


    The creative strategy behind your remarketing process is just as important as the development of the marketing funnel. Curate compelling ad copy alongside creative imagery to grab your audience’s attention and gather success in your campaigns. You should ensure that your creative is relevant to your target audience in the correct stage of their customer journey with your business’s brand guidelines and with a compelling call to action. In doing so, you ensure that every interaction is meaningful.

    Creating different types of ads for your remarketing campaign is important in reaching as many people as possible. We will test the formats, platforms and sizes so that we can see which works best for your campaign. Once on your page, we will then test to see how the visitors convert. If you are gathering high amounts of traffic from the remarketing ads, but conversions aren’t as high as we would like, we will then test how else we can increase conversion rates. Whether it’s by changing copy, amending the layout of the landing page or changing the call to action completely, we will test different methods in order to increase the numbers for you and your business.

  • 05
