HeroConf in on in Portland Oregon, bringing together a crowd of pay per click artists who live for PPC. On Monday, two of the industry’s most engaging speakers discussed the super hot topic at HeroConf, Remarketing Lists for Search (RLSA).

Kim then talked about how RLSA can be problematic because the conversions realized from RLSA may not be incremental growth.
- Conversions are being pushed around rather than bring in new and may be cannibalizing other campaigns. Structure in a way to not shuffle conversions around.
- RLSA is not as good for small businesses, as the remarketing list may be too small.
- If it’s using branding keywords and not getting new customers, be aware it may be too much branding being forced upon the customer
- Worst ever was the acronym RLSA
