Criteo helped us in targeting various website including Facebook in terms of showing the product ads. The ROI from retargeting ads is minimal and it's helping us to use our marketing budget more efficiently. We get notifications from Criteo when to increase or decrease the bid to use our Criteo budget effectively. I would rather say with minimal effort it gives maximum ROI.,Bid optimization, regular notification to optimize bids help us to control the budget. Once the campaign is set & feed uploaded, the rest all is automated, so minimum effort to get the maximum result. Great ROI, as Criteo display ads to all those potential customers who visited us online, the ROI is excellent, it targets almost all high traffic websites.,Reports are not available, e.g. from which website we received impression, clicks & orders.

Online tool online for graphics projects.,8,Increased sales. Brand Awareness Lead Generation,BothCriteo Dynamic Retargeting ReviewThe company where I am currently working for, we use Criteo Dynamic Retargeting to re-engage lost paying clients who are not playing our games anymore but at least they paid a certain amount of money in the past. The product itself is just used by the marketing department but we analyze all the data regarding the campaigns with the data team. Thanks to the pool of data from all the partners of Criteo we are able to retarget those people just with an email address.,You are able to access to their data pool, to build audiences with just an email list (encrypted and hashed) Easy to use platform and easy way to analyze data from the dashboard. Everyone could manage the dashboard easily enough to surf through the data and understand the performance. Also you have the help of your account manager. The powerful algorithm drives good results for your company, without too much effort. And they are continuously improving with new features (design types, campaigns, platform, mobile / app products ...) Support for testing all of the integration of the events to check if data is well received. Google Chrome extension, testing mode inside the dashboard with error detection and also the help of your account manager + technical stuff.,Not for small companies because you have to spend a minimum amount of money for each campaign in order to ensure that the algorithm could work in the right way but also it's a logic reason. Account managers sometimes are not active enough to answer my emails in the first 48 hours, probably Criteo needs to automate some stuff to not need anymore account managers for everything (new campaings, new designs of creatives....) Creative types could improve much more, specially with video features. Video is the future and they need to work much more in that direction.,9,Criteo Dynamic Retargeting gives us very good results and positive ROI on our active campaigns with them. Overall we are pretty happy with them and looking to do more campaigns with them. We are also looking to test new things with them in order to get better ROI such us new video creatives, new mobile app campaigns for our app games & also how the app retargeting products work! We should point out that as a company we are analyzing results as a 'last click' attribution model and if you only look to the data from the dashboard it's different. But also both have good ROI for the campaigns. Also your account manager is always looking for recommendations of new CPC options or going for the ARO (automation of the bid) to optimize it.,,B2CCriteo : A great tool if you use it with good KPI and no blind trustCriteo is used by a few departments and part of my job is to diffuse it throughout the company. It is mainly used for B2C businesses: our e-commerce platforms and some leads on acquisition business. We wanted to retarget new users, or specific audiences through dynamic remarketing products or services. Our main objectives were to increase conversions and improve ROI. Thus, we started to use Criteo as a new remarketing tool next to Google Ads/Facebook Ads.,The first strenght of Criteo Retargeting is the user-friendly platform, where you can easily manage your budget and analyse the performance. Secondly, the CPC based model is great advantage of Criteo compare to some competitors. Finally, the post-click attribution. It is more trustworthy and tenable than post-view.,Tags and feed implementation : difficult and hard to understand for project and dev teams. The budget part is not clear, especially when the account manager does stuff on his own. It should be possible to change the budget from a period and not month to month. Now we have no information about the creative parts. It will be better to have a vision of which ad is working better than another and on which website.,8,If you are a new entrant in a market, with few acquisition channels, Criteo is going to enhance significantly your ROI with low CPA and high turnover. Usually, with have a CPA below 10€ on our businesses for ROI which can be up to 2. If you already have a clear marketing strategy, with many platforms, Criteo will probably increase your turnover but your ROI will be lower due to the high number of common interactions/conversions between the platforms. It happened frequently, that is why you have to think about your main goal/KPI. Finally, you have to take care of the marketing saturation on your global audience, especially if you use remarketing widely on all your platforms such as Linkedin/Facebook/Google/etc. You should keep a ratio of 60% acquisition and 40% max remarketing, and take that into consideration if you want to launch Criteo campaigns. Once, one of your clients focused only on remarketing cause it had a lower CPA : Facebook & Critéo retargeting. But after a few months, the CPA rose drastically and the ROI declined from 3 to almost one. So keep online dedicated campaigns for Acquisition when you use Criteo.,Facebook for Business, LinkedIn Marketing Solutions, Google Ads (formerly AdWords), Twitter Ads, Rakuten Attribution and Google Analytics,BothHuge network and ease of use!Criteo Dynamic Retargeting is a pretty easy and powerful way to start using a retargeting mechanism. We currently use it on all of our business lines, especially in the lower funnel.,Huge network of publishers: your ads are very very likely to be seen multiple times around the web by your users. CPC payment: I particularly like CPC vs CPM, in this way I pay only users who are actually interested in my product. Easy of use: Criteo does not require a lot of management effort,With Criteo you need to be able to delegate to your account and a big part of the job as you can't actively manage the tool. Sometimes this gets a little frustrating. The Criteo Team is not the best for customers that like to have detailed explanations and to be hands-on. Dynamic Creatives set by Criteo are not the best looking (but they are effective).,10,High volumes of conversion at target CPA Visibility Ease of use,Google Ads (formerly AdWords),B2CCriteo Remarketing an honest reviewIt is used across the entire organization! It's a powerful channel to drive back traffic and purchases in our business! We saw a reduction in cart drops and an increase in recurrence. The platform and technology is very versatile and can be used to target a very specific group of users and adapt to your current marketing strategy.,Scalable Easy to implement Flexible,You need to measure incrementality. Need to control the budget constantly. No flexibility in creatives.,8,Good on CPP Good on visits Good on ROI,,B2CLeading Dynamic RetargetingWe use Criteo to retarget our customers who leave our website without making a purchase.

During this time, we've introduced store level reporting, and TVex, which allows us to aggressively retarget users following the airing of our TV ads. These features have given us a much greater insight into the power of impressions, and ultimately allow us to improve our omnichannel strategy.

It's remarkably easy to implement and to manage. We use it to retarget our audience in order to engage customers into the funnel.

  • Sometimes it took time to update the data in the dashboard report.
It's a great marketing tool for B2C industry, particularly for the e-commerce industry. As I have seen the Criteo ads on Facebook, as a marketing person we don't need to run a separate campaign on Facebook. Product Ads looks superb with prices, discount codes and it certainly helps to convert those customers who left the website earlier.

We are an advertising agency, and use it for one client specifically. The solution is isolated to one department, as well. Criteo is our dynamic remarketing solution and we use it to drive product sales based on our product feed.
  • Easy to use interface; makes navigation and campaign management easy
  • Strong direct revenue from product sales; easy to prove value for client
  • Excellent support team, which makes solving issues/troubleshooting and optimizations much easier
  • Lack of visibility into placements (where ads are shown)
  • Limited creative capabilities compared to other advertising platforms
Criteo is perfect for eCommerce clients that have a strong product feed; might not be as appropriate for vendors without a large variety of products or vendors who do not sell directly to consumers.

We use Criteo as a solution to retarget people who visited our e-shop product and have not converted. We also use it to acquire new subscribers for our monthly beauty box as pure acquisition without retargeting. So we have 2 types of utilisations for 2 different goals: subscription acquisition and eshop retargeting.
  • Great retargeting for eshop products and a high ROAS
  • Possibility to use a catalog even for only 1 product which is great to decrease our time spent on creatives
  • A lot of data available on the platform
  • I can't stop my campaign by myself if there are some problems on the website
  • I can't do major changes without talking with my account manager; it is not very easy when we want to have a test and learn approach
  • I do not launch as many messages than on other levers because it is not really easy to launch new creatives quickly
It is really suited for classical online eshops. When the catalog / pixel / creative templates are set well, managing Criteo is really easy. We have a great ROAS and ROI with a low time spent on the platform.

With our box campaign (without retargeting), it is more complicated to have clear explanations on our products and to push different messages because we only have 1 template. We consider that lever as a top of funnel one whereas our main goal is conversion.

We have used Criteo Dynamic Retargeting for various clients in different retail industries. We used it to drive customers that have aborted the sales funnel back to the website.
  • Easy to set up
  • Transparent costs
  • Tracking differences are a big issue and the number one reason why we stop using the product.
  • Data import to "lead tracking" tool would be a chance to really evaluate the success of campaigns based on the company's tracking model.
It produces good results - the results however largely differ from the numbers our customers track via Google Analytics and other web tracking technology. These tremendous differences make steering the campaign difficult and make customers doubt the achieved numbers

Criteo Dynamic Retargeting is used by us to retarget lower-funnel users that leave our website with relevant product offers that they have been viewing.
  • Target lower-funnel users off-site
  • Provide insights using a dashboard
  • Provide more control over the quality of impressions; despite having a very low CPC, recently the # of impressions & clicks has skyrocketed without any additional conversions.
  • Well suited for low impression share campaigns to target the low-funnel users to ensure traffic quality
  • Less-suited to target a broader audience

Criteo Dynamic Retargeting is used by the Digital department of our agency to drastically increase ROI of our clients' e-commerce media plans. The ability to dynamically serve ads to users who have viewed specific products on the website has increased conversion rate and boosted overall sales by more than enough to keep the tactic on the media plan.
  • Dynamically serve retargeting ads to users that have viewed specific items, encouraging them to return and complete their purchase.
  • Responsive dedicated representative.
  • Optimizations goals include CPC, COS, and others.
  • The platform is prone to outages, serving ads with pixelated images.
  • The platform is not able to ensure that the same product is not included multiple times in the same creative.
  • The UI is not as self-serve as we would like.
Criteo Dynamic Retargeting performs very well for e-commerce websites that are generating a large amount of traffic from other sources. It is very efficient at re-engaging with users who may have dropped out of the funnel. We have not seen much success when trying to use the platform with less support from other strategies.

We use Criteo to promote our items, but there is only one department which uses it; the department is called "Webshop," with around about 5 employees. We use it to strengthen sales and promote the reputation of our company. Even items of the current season or sale-items could be pushed with Criteo.

  • Criteo uses a different evaluation system than Google analytics.
  • Criteo could assign more sales (attribution).
  • Plays ads no matter how the customer behaves (for example: cancel cart).
It works for continuous optimization through machine learning. Potential new customers receive reminders of products in which they are already interested, and information about new products in which they could be interested, so our website will stay top-of-mind, and the potential customers can be driven to buy the product in our warehouse.

It is being used to display our inventory. It addresses the problem of showing new vs returning customers.
  • Mid and lower funnel targeting
  • Control over your budget and CPC
  • Supportive tech support and customer support
  • Possibly have an account manager for each account to [see if] setup was done correctly
  • Monthly reviews on Criteo performance
I believe Criteo is great for e-commerce industries only.

It is being used by the sales department. Its main objective is to generate conversions by retargeting users that are in the lower section of the marketing funnel.
  • Very good conversion rate due to its algorithm
  • Excellent support from Criteo managers
  • Very rigid space in the banners to include text
  • Opportunity in improving the display format to make it more attractive to users
Well suited for businesses that have a lot of products

We use Criteo for Display Marketing in one department. It helps us to attract more potential customers around Germany and Europe.
  • The retargeting ads show good offers.
  • It doesn't feel annoying like some other retargeting campaigns.
  • It's flexible.
  • Maybe the cost factor, but not really.
In combination with the display marketing currently in our shop, Criteo is well suited.

Criteo Dynamic Retargeting is very well suited for getting customers to come back to our shop, and therefore it is well suited for increasing sales. Seeing the ads will make the customer recognize our brand. That causes customer loyalty.

Currently we are using Criteo in marketing for our advertising campaigns for our masters, courses and careers.
The business problems we have detected is the adaptability of the images to the different spaces, in addition to the little personalization of the tool.
  • Large number of people impacted
  • Good deal with the client when solving problems
  • Reasonable prices
  • Creatives with very little customization options
  • Simple banners with very simple designs.
  • Excessive manual methods to get information due to a lack of an API to avoid sending XML manually.
  • The difficult telephone communication.
Criteo is perfect to make a massive advertising of products like courses, masters, and careers. For things like that it is fantastic. Criteo is less appropriate for more specific advertising that needs to be highlighted because it is unique...

Criteo helps us with retargeting users which showed interest in our products, but didn't place a order. Like most companies in e-commerce you have quite a good amount of users that abandoned the cart without buying and Criteo helps us to bring those people back, which shows good results. We use it in different countries and it's steered by our performance marketing team.
  • Retargeting of potential customers
  • Easy implementation
  • Attribution - Sales figures are overestimated
  • A/B-testing feature missing
  • Flexibilty - Not too many options to optimize the campaigns
Criteo works well if you have an e-commerce website with a lot of traffic and a big amount of people showing interest in your products, but don't convert in their visit. Criteo can help to reach those people again and remind them of your brand and products and ultimately convert them.

We use Criteo in our digital marketing area. We use Criteo tools to increase lead generation and to convert users into customers. Only the Digital Marketing Area uses Criteo. Criteo's backend is very user-friendly so we don't have any problems managing and to checking our Criteo business.
  • Criteo follows the user throughout their online journey
  • Criteo improves the brand awareness of our company
  • Criteo offers an interesting omnichannel graphic
  • Criteo has a very user-friendly frontend
  • I'd like Criteo to create webinars to explain new feature launches
  • Mobile application for monitoring our business.
  • Online tool online for graphics projects.
Criteo is a very useful tool if you want improve your online business. It is an omnichannel tool so you can follow the user on all devices (mobile, desktop, tablet). I think that Criteo is a very important tool if you have an e-commerce platform.

I think that Criteo is less appropriate if you don't have an e-commerce platform.

The company where I am currently working for, we use Criteo Dynamic Retargeting to re-engage lost paying clients who are not playing our games anymore but at least they paid a certain amount of money in the past. The product itself is just used by the marketing department but we analyze all the data regarding the campaigns with the data team. Thanks to the pool of data from all the partners of Criteo we are able to retarget those people just with an email address.
  • You are able to access to their data pool, to build audiences with just an email list (encrypted and hashed)
  • Easy to use platform and easy way to analyze data from the dashboard. Everyone could manage the dashboard easily enough to surf through the data and understand the performance. Also you have the help of your account manager.
  • The powerful algorithm drives good results for your company, without too much effort. And they are continuously improving with new features (design types, campaigns, platform, mobile / app products ...)
  • Support for testing all of the integration of the events to check if data is well received. Google Chrome extension, testing mode inside the dashboard with error detection and also the help of your account manager + technical stuff.
  • Not for small companies because you have to spend a minimum amount of money for each campaign in order to ensure that the algorithm could work in the right way but also it's a logic reason.
  • Account managers sometimes are not active enough to answer my emails in the first 48 hours, probably Criteo needs to automate some stuff to not need anymore account managers for everything (new campaings, new designs of creatives....)
  • Creative types could improve much more, specially with video features. Video is the future and they need to work much more in that direction.
Criteo Dynamic Retargeting is well suited for every kind of action related to hot leads / customers regarding your business. It's a good way to increase the conversion rates of the funnel and always works really well for that kind of audience. On the other hand, you need to ensure that you have built a minimum size audience to let the algorithm work properly.

Criteo is used by a few departments and part of my job is to diffuse it throughout the company. It is mainly used for B2C businesses: our e-commerce platforms and some leads on acquisition business. We wanted to retarget new users, or specific audiences through dynamic remarketing products or services. Our main objectives were to increase conversions and improve ROI. Thus, we started to use Criteo as a new remarketing tool next to Google Ads/Facebook Ads.
  • The first strenght of Criteo Retargeting is the user-friendly platform, where you can easily manage your budget and analyse the performance.
  • Secondly, the CPC based model is great advantage of Criteo compare to some competitors.
  • Finally, the post-click attribution. It is more trustworthy and tenable than post-view.
  • Tags and feed implementation : difficult and hard to understand for project and dev teams.
  • The budget part is not clear, especially when the account manager does stuff on his own. It should be possible to change the budget from a period and not month to month.
  • Now we have no information about the creative parts. It will be better to have a vision of which ad is working better than another and on which website.
- If you have a lot of high-quality traffic without conversion, Criteo will help to engage and make them convert.
- If you want to increase the turnover by new means.
- If you launch a new business and you have "nice & aesthetic" products, it will be a great addition to your acquisition strategy, with good results usually, including increased brand awareness and turnover.
- If you are selling visibility/notoriety to clients, Criteo is a qualitative display network and it will be well received by your clients.
- I do not recommend Criteo for e-commerce businesses with very high cost. It will have a high CPA and it will be difficult to attribute conversion due to the number of marketing interactions required.

Criteo Dynamic Retargeting is a pretty easy and powerful way to start using a retargeting mechanism. We currently use it on all of our business lines, especially in the lower funnel.
  • Huge network of publishers: your ads are very very likely to be seen multiple times around the web by your users.
  • CPC payment: I particularly like CPC vs CPM, in this way I pay only users who are actually interested in my product.
  • Easy of use: Criteo does not require a lot of management effort
  • With Criteo you need to be able to delegate to your account and a big part of the job as you can't actively manage the tool. Sometimes this gets a little frustrating.
  • The Criteo Team is not the best for customers that like to have detailed explanations and to be hands-on.
  • Dynamic Creatives set by Criteo are not the best looking (but they are effective).
Criteo is very well suited for business with a product: the dynamic feed exposes to the user products seen on your website. It is less suited for service providers.

It is used across the entire organization! It's a powerful channel to drive back traffic and purchases in our business! We saw a reduction in cart drops and an increase in recurrence. The platform and technology is very versatile and can be used to target a very specific group of users and adapt to your current marketing strategy.
  • Scalable
  • Easy to implement
  • Flexible
  • You need to measure incrementality.
  • Need to control the budget constantly.
  • No flexibility in creatives.
I would recommend Criteo Dynamic Retargeting is a case of e-commerce business and businesses where it is crucial to maintain that your users always engaged. It works best when you have prices and discounts as a competitive factor. It would work less when you have to use static images. It may work better when you don't have a strong CRM and if you do have that you should create a complementary strategy.

We use Criteo to retarget our customers who leave our website without making a purchase. By using Criteo we can win back lots of leaving customers. The performance we reach with Criteo is very good and the banners are also varied. In particular, we target customers with abandoned carts or who are visiting product detail pages.
  • Reach leaving customers
  • Large display network
  • Always the latest technology
  • Blackbox of data
  • The support team often changes
  • Good to reach customers that have abandoned the cart
  • Not so good in select categories or segments that should be filtered out from the targeting

Criteo enables us to retarget our customers who shopped online and catch those abandoned cart customers. It's useful for us because in car rental, often customers will get a quote on our website but then leave to look elsewhere and it's effective to have Criteo ads following them page to page afterward to show them we're the lowest price they'll find.
  • Facebook Retargeting
  • News websites
  • Google advertising
  • Updating creatives more often
  • Using more varied ad formats
  • Simplified weekly reporting
For very low prices it is perfect because it stands out on the retagreting ads and the dynamic ad format shows a range of vehicles in case they want something bigger/smaller.

Over the last 12 months, I've used Criteo Dynamic Retargeting to capture lower funnel customers to convert into online and stores sales. During this time, we've introduced store level reporting, and TVex, which allows us to aggressively retarget users following the airing of our TV ads. These features have given us a much greater insight into the power of impressions, and ultimately allow us to improve our omnichannel strategy. This has been further aided by the support of the amount strategists at Criteo, who are extremely knowledgable, friendly and helpful.
  • Lower funnel retargeting - stop your customers going elsewhere
  • TVex - make your TV ads work harder
  • Offline store sales - learn more about the value of brand building and onmichannel reporting
  • Weekly strategy calls
  • More control of the platform
  • Greater training for big clients
Sales - with feed based activity, you won't be caught out with price changes.

My Criteo Review !

I have been using Criteo for many years now (close to 7 years). It's remarkably easy to implement and to manage. We use it to retarget our audience in order to engage customers into the funnel. It's a good tool of acquisition additionally for other campaigns like affiliation or Google Ad Words. Pay attention to your CPC adjustments for the big periods of commerce.
  • Retargeting
  • Tracking
  • Manage campaign
  • User Interface
  • Last Click attribution
It's good to use with a correct tracking implementation for basic retargeting. Like moving add to cart scenery or abandoned cart into the funnel of conversion. But I tried the new tool for customer acquisition and in my experience, the ROI is not really high. I prefer to use other channels of acquisition.

We have a lot of traffic on our blog. Our goal is to invite those users visiting the blog to discover our product and to place an order. Criteo Dynamic Retargeting was an efficient tool to address those visitors and invite them to do so.
  • Attract visitors of the blog to visit product pages
  • Encourage visitors to order
  • Encourage old clients to order again
  • Create specific banners more easily than proposed in the coupon projects (too many created to download)
  • Push specific banners depending on the pages viewed by the visitor. For example, if it is a visitor of the blog, do not push the product's banner but a brand banner.
  • Chose the type of sites we want to see our banners to be pushed on.
If you have trafic that only visits your site and you want them to order, it is well suited!

Criteo retargeting has been very helpful in getting users back into our site. Their tool outperforms their competitors when it comes to both traffic and conversions.
  • Display Ads Design
  • Websites Placements
  • Quality Traffic
  • Placement reporting
  • Traffic reporting
Criteo is great for a multi-product retail site and for any conversion driven businesses. Not so useful for PR perhaps, as it doesn't give any user insight.
