We all want our customers to convert on the first visit to our website right? That’s the dream, however, it’s not the reality. Over 95% of customers don’t convert on their first visit to your website.

However by using Facebook retargeting you are keeping your brand in the focus of the potential customer, turning that lukewarm customer into a red hot one!

Did you know the average abandon cart rate is a sickening 70%? Retargeting is a great way of gently nudging customers to complete their purchase of a particular product.
