We found over the last few years that in some cases we were doing things because that’s the way we’ve always done them.”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Why Are Remarketing Ads Important?

[vc_row][vc_column][tm_heading tag=”div” custom_google_font=”” text=”Ever been innocuously browsing the web for your next pair of shoes, before leaving the retail site to browse your social media, only to find the shoes have followed you in an advertisement – reminding you you’ve forgotten them? That’s dynamic remarketing.

Dynamic remarketing takes standard remarketing a step further by showing your prospects tailored advertisements containing specific products and services they have viewed. It aims to keep your brand relevant by bringing them back to your website to complete their purchase, as people who have already shown an interest in your product or service have a far higher chance of converting.”][tm_spacer size=”lg:50″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″ xs_spacing=”margin_bottom:30″][tm_image image=”54″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][tm_image image=”55″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][tm_spacer size=”lg:50″][tm_heading tag=”h5″ custom_google_font=”” text=”Setting Up Dynamic Remarketing Campaigns”][tm_spacer size=”lg:20″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][tm_heading tag=”p” custom_google_font=”” text=”Dynamic remarketing can be applied to Google’s search and display networks. But as dynamic remarketing is more associated with display we’ll concentrate on that.
First you’ll need a piece of Google remarketing code (also called a ‘tag’) inserted into your website coding. Google has a pretty good guide on how to do just that.”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][tm_heading tag=”p” custom_google_font=”” text=”The tag works using cookies to remember something about the user at a later date.

These remarketing lists will then have enough data for you to be able to create your dynamic display remarketing ads.
You can also create your audiences using Google Analytics; advantageous for having the ability to separate bids on each ad group within each remarketing list. At Genie for example, we recently established a dynamic remarketing campaign targeting abandoned baskets, site visitors, past purchasers and product viewers. Even this general set of criteria vs standard remarketing for the same client yielded a COS drop of a third at an ROI of 2494%”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Brunch at Terrine

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I carry my years without submitting to the regimen of time and its chronology of dates and seasons. I recognize myself living, hands outstretched, in the shade of the almond tree, with white hair and staring eyes unconcerned with the passing hours. My tree and I have entwined our ages in the absurdity of the days. I stride from chapel to chapel between masses.

I find refuge there from the filthiness of existence. I imagine lives never exposed to the flavors of ripe mangoes and cherries in June, or to mild, starry nights and clear mornings, or to moments dissolving like hot, tender walnuts under the tongue.

“All by myself I invented a yearning for the myths and legends behind the featureless face of the one who brought me into the world.”

I survived with just enough nourishment to avoid dying from malnutrition, just enough hygiene to avoid succumbing to dysentery, typhoid and other infections that fill the space around us, just enough breath to not find myself six feet under. I have no memory of the belly I came from.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Explore Vancouver Mountain

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]During the summer my wife and I got to go on an amazing road trip in Vancouver Mountain with our good friends Samuel and Hildegunn Taipale. Norway is just amazing landscapes after amazing landscapes. Definitely a place worth visiting if you ever get the chance! Thanks to Visit Norway for making our trip possible.
Now that the weather is warming, we can’t think of nothing better than the two-hour ride up to Hudson for the weekend. For a truly special stay, Haviland House checks all the boxes for a trip upstate: a comfortable stay in an elegant home with dreamy interiors.

“Thought to be the first structure on Fifth Street, the house was built in 1825 and later named for its original owner, Steamboat Captain John T.”

Today, the three-bedroom vacation home sleeps six and is filled with gorgeous antiques, original wide plank flooring, multiple wood-burning fireplaces, and a screened porch and backyard that is perfect for dining al fresco. One of the best draws to the house is its close proximity to all of the city’s wonderful restaurants and shops.[/vc_column_text][tm_spacer size=”lg:20″][tm_heading tag=”h5″ custom_google_font=”” text=”LOVE WHAT YOU DO.

And although the house comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, if you would prefer to dine out, we recommend Fish & Game, one of our favorite farm-to-table restaurants serving seasonal food in a former 19th century blacksmith shop.”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][tm_heading tag=”p” custom_google_font=”” text=”Haviland House is available to rent throughout the year from Red Cottage, a boutique rental agency with a curated collection of beautiful vacation homes upstate with properties ranging from cozy cottages and rustic cabins to airy farmhouses and palatial estates.”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Discovering Paris

Paris is one of the most beautiful cities on earth, a truth easily appreciated on a stroll that could yield one stunning vista after another, from the epic Eiffel Tower to the regal Jardin des Tuileries to the petite cafés bursting onto the sidewalks. Beyond the city’s visual appeal, the cultural riches of the French capital are unsurpassed. Whether you opt to explore the historic, fashion-conscious, bourgeois, or bohemian and arty sides of Paris, one thing is certain: the City of Light will always enthrall.

Daily Reason To Be Happy

Happiness is the universal feeling we all aspire to experience more of, yet, we can be an angry, moody, depressed bunch, can’t we? The science of happiness tells us that being happy is, indeed, a choice.

  • There are people in your life who love and depend on you.
  • Life could change dramatically
  • Happy people are more productive

It seems as if every week we hear about a new tragedy that makes us question the human spirit. Unfortunately, we live in a world where there will inevitably be war, famine, poverty, and destruction. But here’s the thing: good always trumps evil. The actions of one happy person can create a ripple effect that can literally change the world. So be the change you wish to create. Choose happiness. Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.

No matter how sick, tired, sad, or unhappy you are, there’s one thing you can still be grateful for and that’s the fact that you’re still here. People we love leave us unexpectedly on a regular basis. Think about what you would do if you knew this was your last day on earth?

Become Who You Say You Always Will

If I have a chance to whisper the best advice to a baby and he’ll remember it for the rest of his life is this: ENJOY YOUR LIFE. Nothing else. In whatever he has to do and wherever he may go, JUST ENJOY. Life is not a destination. It is a forever on-going journey. So enjoy it. Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future.

Don’t exist. Live. Get out, explore. Thrive. Challenge authority. Challenge yourself. Evolve. Change forever. Become who you say you always will. Keep moving. Don’t stop. Start the revolution. Become a freedom fighter. Become a superhero. Just because everyone doesn’t know your name doesn’t mean you don’t matter. Are you happy? Have you ever been happy? What have you done today to matter? Did you exist or did you live? How did you thrive?
