Custom Audiences - Video Engagement

How is this useful? Difference stages of video being watched indicates different levels of interests which can be used for different remarketing strategies.

For example, people who had watched 75% or 95% above usually are audiences that show high interests towards the content. If the video is the introduction video for your product and services.

Custom Audiences - Facebook Page & Instagram Profile

You may think that, why not just use everyone who is engaged with your page? It will include all of them right?

However, the main idea here on creating a custom audience to do remarketing is to do very specific segregations on the type of audiences and reach them accordingly using different ad content to achieve your objectives.

Different audience behavior on your page also indicates a different level of interest towards your business.

For example, people who follow or like your page do not necessarily have the same level of interest when compared to people who engaged with your page or even messaged your page before. The actions taken show a different level of interest and usually people who engaged or messaged your page will have a higher potential to convert compared to people who just liked your page.

While people who liked or followed your page, you can make use of other post content to attract them to engage more with your page and build up their familiarity with your brand, nurture them and eventually convert them into a long term relationship as valued fans & customers.

3. People who opened and submitted form.

Custom Audiences - Lead Form

The lead form custom audience can help to improve the audience targeting to be more specific in the campaign when it comes to remarketing, expanding audience and increasing the targeting accuracy.

Here are some of the scenarios on how to use the lead form custom audiences.

For instance, in a scenario that we are seeing duplicate leads are signing the form over and over again, upon creating the lead custom audience for people who signed up form. Making use of the custom audience by excluding it will help to avoid duplicate leads to sign up once more for the next 90 days.

In another scenario, we can also retarget the opened lead form audience that didn’t submit the form through remarketing campaigns as these audiences already show interest in your ad by clicking the ad and opening the form. Remarketing campaigns through different ad content to re-engage these audiences can help to increase the lead sign up rate even further.

Apart from all of the stated methods, all of the audience engagement custom audience also can be used to create lookalike audiences which will help advertisers to find audiences that have similar behaviors based on the source audience.
