  • I think Staples is remarketing to me via facebook ads/sponsored posts. I looked at at item the other day on their site, they sent me an email about the item after I left the site (I didn’t even put it in my shopping cart yet), and now similar items are showing up as facebook ads and sponsored post’s.

    • Yeah it’s kind of funny, I stopped by Marie Forleo’s site randomly the other day and started getting hit with her B-School training program although it’s only for women I think, haha!

    • Remarketing is really catching on now – I even got served youtube ad videos for CrazyEgg after I visited their site.
