Workshop 6: Gravity R&D – Seven-fold CTR Increase with Personalized Re-targeting :  A Classified Media Case Study

The workshop covers several case studies about re-engaging and converting high-intent prospects with personally recommended ads in re-targeted banners on external sites where the classified business advertises on. Let’s assume that a user had recently been browsing among Volkswagen ads on the classified site. By identifying the user with her cookie ID, we can provide relevant content in the banner on an external site where the classified site advertises on (in this case, new Volkswagen ads that match the user’s latest behavior on the classified site). By showing personalized banners, the user will return to the classified site with higher probability, compared to non-personalized re-targeting campaigns.

Facilitator: Peter A. Csikos, President & CEO of Gravity R&D, Hungary
