In Marketing of any business retargeting and remarketing is necessary to increase sales with returning clients.
Retargeting as the name suggests is the process of targeting a returning visitor or customer again.
Remarketing is the process of presenting information about any stuff that might be of interest for the returning customer.
In general Retargeting and Remarketing are same.
A study shows that only 2% of the traffic will be converted into sales when the user is visiting your website for the first time.
In traditional marketing you can easily identify your customers and you can contact them directly.
In digital marketing, retargeting a customer is a little bit more tricky.
It requires some skills in web analytics to retarget your customers, visitors or clients.
If a customer has purchased some services or products from your website then you will know his contact details.
You will also know the product he/she purchased and hence you can website send them offers about related products and services via email or sms.
If contact details are not known then also we can target our customers and present them items or services which are of his/her interest.
You can retarget those visitors who have not made any purchases.
We can automate the process of retargeting as well.
All major analytics service providers like Google, Facebook and Bing etc. provide re-targeting scripts.
If the visitors returns to our website after some time, that script will detect it.
You can offer cross-sell products or up-sell products to your returning visitors.
If you are a developer then you can write your own piece of code to analyse user behavior and the niche of its interest.
Products from the category of interest of Returning visitors will be presented which ensures a higher rate of conversion.
If you are spending in Online Advertising / PPC then retargeting a customer is very important for better sales percentage.
Let us assume that you visited a Car Comparison website and looked for a particular car model and navigated away from the website. After some time you visited another website publishing adsense ads. In that website you will often see ads related to the information that you were looking for in your previously visited website.
This is an example of retargeting and remarketing.
Your browser cookies we able to detect your habits and show you relative data.
Such retargeting can be done using Google Adwords.
Variables are used in PHP and other programming languages to store dynamic values.
Variables can be used in any PHP program to store information.
How to create or declare a variable in PHP?
Variables are declared using $ (dolar) sign followed by _ (underscore) or alphabets.
If we want to declare a variable named First Name we can write it as:
A variable name can contain Alpha Numeric Characters with or without underscores.
A variable can store values of any data type like strings, bool, float, double or integer.
Remember that in PHP the variables are declared in the same line where a value is assigned to them.
Unlike other programming languages there is no need to firstly declare a variable and then assign a value to it.
You can assign values and declare a variable at the same time.
Here is an example:
$firstName = “Manish”;
If we want to print this variable we can simply write
$firstName = “Manish”;
//Outputs : Manish
Variables in PHP are case sensitive.
Note : In the example given above we have not used single quotes or double quotes while echoing or printing $firstName. But a string cannot be assigned to a variable without the use of double or single quotes.
Consider the example given below
$lang = “PHP”;
echo “We are studying $lang”;
//Outputs : We are studying PHP.
In this example we have written $lang inside double quotes. We will not get any error because the assigned value to $lang variable was a string.
