New Google Ads Integration: Drive Conversions with Remarketing

Your weekend getaway to Miami Beach is just a few weeks away, and you’re on the hunt for a new pair of shades. You browse a few sites and a cool pair of wayfarers catch your eye, but you’re not sure about the price tag. You’ll keep looking for a bit.
The next day while checking your favorite social media sites, you see an ad with that perfect set of shades — with a 10% promo code. Score! You click to land on the product page and snag your sunglasses. You can almost hear the waves crashing on the sand.
That social media ad was part of an effective remarketing campaign. This technique allows marketers to put highly targeted ads in front of an audience that’s already interacted with their site.
To be able to do this, marketers use either pixel-based or list-based methods to implement a remarketing campaign. In either case, the success of the campaign depends on very well-defined user segments.
The more specific the segment, the more relevant and persuasive your remarketing ads will be to your audience. As a result, you get better conversions — at up to 220% higher ROI.1
For list-based remarketing campaigns, you need highly focused lists of users who demonstrated intent but didn’t purchase. Depending on your business goals, you can also create lists aimed at upselling to existing customers or promoting content to readers.
And with CleverTap’s new Google Ads integration, you can directly upload lists of segmented users to your Google Ads account to run hyper-targeted campaigns.

Create Detailed User Segments for Remarketing Campaigns that Deliver Results

Identify the most relevant audiences using the industry’s most powerful segmentation capabilities and show relevant ads using Google Ads. Using CleverTap’s granular segmentation tools, you can group users by location, transaction history, acquisition source, product viewed, interests, or a slew of other detailed properties.

  • Group users based on in-app behavior: page visit, session length, product category viewed, etc.
  • Identify key user segments with automated segmentation (RFM), including champions, new users, and customers at risk of churn and create separate lists for highly targeted ads.
  • Use Pivots for dayparting analysis to identify when users are most or least active. Use these traffic trends to create lists for each segment.
  • Use Flows to identify users who are showing indications for churn so you can engage them outside of your app before they uninstall.
  • Use Cohorts to identify groups of inactive users and re-engage them via remarketing campaigns.

The CleverTap dashboard now offers a pre-built integration with Google Ads.
Easily extract rich user segment lists from CleverTap and push them to your Google Ads account to run highly targeted remarketing campaigns across the Google Search Network, YouTube, and Gmail.
Create more effective remarketing campaigns and engage users outside of your app. Here are a few examples for specific app verticals:
