How Targeted Ads Work

How Targeted Ads Work | eklectic.in

Do you get that creepy stalker feeling when seeing some ads? What you are seeing are retargeted advertisements. Retargeted ads are designed to capture the attention of the browser-window shoppers of the internet. While we continue our research around the web, they are tailored to redirect us back to just the right pair of socks.

If you are a website owner — like eBay, flipkart or Amazo — ad tech companies provide a few lines of code for your website. Whenever someone visits your site, the code drops a browser cookie that will mark you anonymously as someone who has visited this site. After that, whenever you load Facebook or any other website with ads, the advertising networks will look at the cookies on your computer using the information about which websites you’ve visited to choose which ad to display.

It's one of the first examples of a new kind of temporary product placement called "digital insertion."

5 Ways the Ad World Has Changed in the Last 10 Years

When Verizon Wireless wanted to drive more foot traffic to its retail stores last winter, the brand supplemented traditional advertising an onsite program called Stop Motion Studio. Customers could create short, animated videos, decorated with tiny snowmen, reindeer, Santas and other props, to use as their holiday greeting. While they were playing mini-movie mogul, they were also learning about their phone's capabilities, accessories and add-ons. The event, which spawned an ongoing workshop series, shows just how much the advertising business has evolved. We're moving into two-way relationships between companies and consumers, occurring everywhere from Tumblr, to Instagram, to store fronts and taxis.
