Retargeting Campaign

Provide your campaign budget and your ads will run until contracted impressions are met on APMA’s websites. Submitting all materials as recommended will provide the highest placement rate and allow the system to best optimize your ad campaign for performance. Keep the message simple and the text as large and easy-to-read as possible.

A strong thought leadership piece will include quotes or examples from one or more sources with success stories.
  • Offer an editorialized perspective on how your product or service effectively solves this problem for the reader/user. This is best achieved through telling the story of an actual product user. Utilize a source, a person who is using the product, who can be quoted/cited in some way. This should be a real-life person speaking to their experience and how they’ve applied this product to accomplish a goal or solve a problem in their business. Note these should not be traditional marketing testimonial quotes but true, longer-form success stories.
  • Avoid using sensational words and marketing/sales language.
  • Include an image of the person using the product. The image should be related to or representational of the story.
  • The Subject Line should be positive, compelling and not sensational or click-bait. Consider using the subject or preheader text to promote an offer.
  • CTA button to be included following first paragraph, before the scroll. Consider text like “read more” or “shop now”. Avoid “click here”.
