We link to that in the show notes, so definitely check it out. In today’s episode, we dive into how Lomit and his team run incredibly sophisticated re-engagement ads.

We are going to dive into why paid re-engagement is necessary even when there are other organic options available. We talked about how to employ re-engagement across very different points of the user journey, how to measure the impact of re-engagement and we get a peek into the AI-based creative testing and optimization system that Lomit & his team used to drive some incredible performance. This is a fascinating peek behind the curtain of an incredibly sophisticated marketing machine.
