Retargeting users based on their previous responses

So you are on a mission to engage your mobile app users and you started building and managing push notifications campaigns to promote your products or service. What now? Well, keep in mind that the way your users engaged with your previous campaigns is one of the best sources of information for what you should do next. Analysing how users interact with your marketing messages is a must for an accurate planning of your next mobile marketing initiatives. Retargeting is the process of selecting users as recipients for a new marketing message based on the response they gave to a previous campaign. Retargeting allows you to build more personalised and tailored campaigns thanks to what you learnt about your users preferences and needs through their previous interactions with your marketing messages.

How can you retarget your mobile users? In the next paragraph we will answer to this question by showing you Netmera retargeting capability.
