BuildOps surveyed the top 1000 construction companies in the United States to discover which retargeting technologies fuel their success. Our team identified hundreds of platforms and tools leveraged by some of the most successful construction companies.

This report also compares the findings with global marketing technology adoption trends across 6 million websites. This demonstrates how and why top construction companies differ from the rest of the construction industry when it comes to advertising and marketing technology adoption.

What We Discovered

Roughly 22% of construction companies use this tool. It is retargets website visitors on Facebook or the Google Display Network. This is important because only 2% of your website visitors convert on the first visit to your website – 98% will leave and that’s where a retargeting platform helps you stay in front of potential customers with display banner ads or social media ads. Retargeting is also the most inexpensive campaign tactic that can lead to up to a 150% increase in conversion rates.

What’s the usage of retargeting platforms among the top 1000 construction companies? Our team discovered the active usage of 9 different retargeting platforms among the top construction companies. It’s important to note that some companies would use Demand-Side Platform (DSP) or programmatic display campaign type platforms to run retargeting campaigns from the same tool.
