Are you willing to employ remarketing? If so, you have to go through four steps. In the first step, you have to select “Audiences’ under the “Remarketing” section within your Google Analytics property settings. The second step is to choose the AdWords account where you would like to share your Audience and click “Next Step.” The third requests that the user click “Enable” to create their first audience. They can also do that at a later stage and create more complex audiences such as “visitors who visited more than five pages” or “abandoned cart.” In the last step, the user should click “Create Campaign” thereby completing the remarketing campaign process in AdWords.
