Let us understand this with a small example, suppose that Ram is our target customer and he browses facebook 30 times a day and other websites like Twitter, Instagram etc. once a day.
We decided to market our product on Twitter where the ad is seen by Ram but hardly once and that too in few days. These ads often get missed by Ram and hence, even after marketing our product we do not get the customer we were aiming for.
