Then select the Ad group you want to associate with remarketing lists and then select Add exclusions. Select remarketing lists you want to target and/or exclude from the selected ad group. Click Save to complete the set up. Finally, Exclusion is another type of association status, like enable or pause. You can easily convert any existing targeting associations to an exclusion and vice versa within the table," explains Bing.

Bing also shared a few examples of remarketing exclusions for furthering audience-targeting objectives and to achieve a higher ROI said,

  • exclude existing customers from a ad campaign set up to generate new sign-ups.
  • when a business or service entails a long commitment from customers, "recent customers may not be in the market to buy again for a while", like with buying a car or home.
  • an ad campaign with a focus on a specific stage of customer purchase experience. In that case, you could use a combination of targeting associations and exclusions to focus on just those users. For example, "with customers who added items to a cart but have not yet made a purchase."
  • when converting free trial users to paid customers, "you can exclude customers who may not approach the end of trial period for that ad campaign."
