When it comes to building an effective marketing strategy, it is important to keep your target audience firmly in mind. Failing to do this can lead to an unfocused strategy that isn’t quite able to reach the market you’re hoping to find. Even once you have that market firmly in mind, it is equally important to use all tools at your disposal in order to give your business the extra boost it needs to succeed. Let’s say that you’ve determined that the majority of your target audience is predominantly present on their smartphones and other mobile devices, and so a mobile marketing strategy is in order. Do you have that strategy optimized to include GEO mobile data?
What is GEO mobile?
When you download and install an app, you usually get a popup that details the permissions that the app is requesting. Many of these downloads will request permission to access your location. More specifically, they’re looking to find your geographical (GEO) location in order to determine what offers and businesses might best appeal to you. They then tend to tailor the ads they show you appropriately. GEO mobile marketing, then, is marketing that utilizes the geographical location of the mobile device in question to help personalize the advertising the user in question receives.
What can GEO mobile marketing do?
Because it uses the location of the device in question to tailor ads, GEO mobile marketing is quite effective at delivering ads that are relevant to users. That means that they won’t receive ads telling them visit an outdoor venue if it is pouring rain or snow, for example, nor will they receive suggestions to visit locations that are hundreds of miles away. GEO mobile ads are truly the next level of consumer-centered ad campaigns.
