Remarketing Google Adwords - using product images

Moving on from static text and graphic banners

Hi all

Recently started with remarketing and have set up simple text ads and graphic banners.

But what I really want is to show actual products that customers have seen on my site.

Q1. Is there a way of dynamically developing these ads or does each one need to be set up individually?

Q2. We are a small website and I understand that you need a target group of a certain number of people. If this is the case, we may not meet the required number per product item. Would it be best to group products together to show a few best selling items from that part of the range?

Dynamic Remarketing uses your GMC (PLA) datafeed to do this automatically:

Remarketing can be a little creepy.

I was checking out my competitions website, and they placed remarketing product ads on practically every site I visited afterwards for about a week.

I felt like I was being stalked.

Remarketing has to be subtle, or else you are going to look desperate.

Limit the imps then.

But also realize that now that so many are doing remarketing, the stalking isn't as obvious. Yes, I am saying there are so many stalkers, you don't notice it as much (my statement is creepy!).

Because Google's done such a good job of integrating retargeting into AdWords, too much of the discussion about this tactic occurs in that context. If you're looking for a retargeting venue where you can get great results with low frequency - thus avoiding the creepiness factor - there's no better place than Facebook. Here's data [blog.triggit.com] we put out showing how many more retargeting bidding opportunities there are on a per-user basis than on Google.
