Definition of retargeting or remarketing
Retargeting / remarketing / retargeting is a marketing practice that most often consists of targeting, through banners / text ads / videos / enriched content, a person who has visited a website, but for whom there was no purchase or conversion during this visit.
Follow the Internet user who has not converted
Let's take the example of an e-commerce site (Advertiser) that sells green frogs: when the Internet user visits this site, the remarketing platform will deposit a cookie If the same Internet user does not make a purchase on the e-commerce site, he will be "reloaded", i.e. when the Internet user visits other sites on the web (publishers) he will see ads linked to the Advertiser's products.
Of course, by browsing the web, the Internet user will accumulate cookies on his computer and there will be a competition of advertisers, at which point a RTB (Real Time Bidding) system is set up by the majority of remarketing actors to define the ads that will be exposed to Internet users, the competition is linked to the advertiser's auction and the quality of his ads.
