AudienceStream Benefits Your Retargeting and Remarketing Campaigns—From Impression to Sale

Retargeting and remarketing are a proven way to increase conversion rates for email and ad campaigns. Research shows that web site visitors who are retargeted with display ads are 70 percent more likely on average to take a valuable action on your web site. Your advertising and email vendors provide you with the infrastructure you need to create campaigns to re-engage with visitors, mobile users and customers. But what if you could leverage that infrastructure to engage in more meaningful ways with right-time offers? Tealium unified marketing solutions make customer interactions more timely and relevant.

To further fuel your efforts, Tealium AudienceStream™ boosts the quality of your targeting with high-value, actionable visitor profile enrichment using first-party data. AudienceStream also improves the timeliness of your campaigns by working with key marketing technologies to achieve true real-time personalized marketing interactions. These real-time capabilities can help fuel campaign initiatives and provide your sales team with key customer insights.

Display Ad Retargeting: Enriched Audience Data Brings Back Visitors

First-party audience data automatically sent from AudienceStream to retargeting vendors more efficiently improves click-through rates and conversions for your advertiser’s display campaigns. AudienceStream in conjunction with Tealium iQ™, Tealium’s powerful enterprise tag management solution, can easily enrich audience data with the attributes you desire and deliver these highly valued segments to your advertising partners—triggering retargeting action in real time.

Remarketing: Personalized E-mails in Real Time

For remarketing, timeliness is critical. Enriched real-time data from AudienceStream can be injected into the digital marketing tags of your marketing automation partners. AudienceStream can automatically send a timely, relevant e-mail offer based on interaction with your site. For example, when a visitor starts a purchase process, but does not actually convert, AudienceStream can send the visitor ID and abandonment details to the e-mail vendor so an immediate personalized e-mail offer can be sent. When that highly relevant offer is made in real time, effectiveness of that subsequent interaction improves dramatically compared to the typical days or weeks experienced by marketers today.

When Tealium iQ and AudienceStream are deployed together, real-time engagement to propel funnel progression is a reality.

This company wanted to most efficiently convert free trial prospects to paying subscribers with an ad retargeting campaign. Before AudienceStream was in place, the company used a costly and time-consuming process to implement their campaigns.

AudienceStream Solution


Prior to AudienceStream, the complexity and resources associated with retargeting was too costly. AudienceStream fueled a retargeting campaign that proved to be cost effective and timely, creating more substantial retargeting ROI. In the chart below, revenues associated with “Free Trials” are trials that started off Free and were converted to paid during the retargeting campaign. Paid Subscription revenues are associated with non-trial sales associated with a standard (non-retargeted) ad campaign.
