Location-Based Advertising

Date: 16th September 2015 - 18th September 2015 Location: San Francisco - California - USA

With the growth of mobile browsing habits and Internet shopping trends, traditional avenues of advertising have been gradually replaced or even supplanted entirely by new marketing strategies. Advancements in the last few years have provided marketers with a breadth of new ways to more precisely target their audiences. As these concepts advance, so too must marketing campaigns and the companies that seek to capitalize on them.

Whether you are looking to offer coupons or promotions for customers just entering your specific store location, or trying to target a broader demographic of clientele within a ZIP code or region, geomarketing and location-based marketing strategies allow campaigns to be designed to target customers based on where they are. Whether targeting people in specific geographic areas or visitors at an individual store, the key is to get the right messages to the right people in the right place at the right time. Utilizing the growth of mobile GIS information, campaigns can be designed to incentivize customers to share their demographic data and location with retailers and businesses, and this information can then be leveraged to plan a campaign designed to reach exactly the targeted audience and encourage new and repeat business.

Location-Based Advertising: Leveraging Geomarketing and Location-Based Advertising Tools to Effectively Engage Key Customers is designed to bring together the key players from the technology, data management and marketing sectors to showcase the latest in geomarketing and location-based marketing strategies and demographic data collection to help businesses most effectively design, market and implement successful outreach and promotion strategies to highlight their products and promote their brands. This includes everything from the physical hardware required, such as beacons that can transmit and collect information at an individual location, to mobile smartphone apps and IP tracking, to targeted real-time marketing strategies and data collection campaigns implemented via customer rewards programs. Attendees of this must-attend event will leave with a greater understanding of the how to succeed with geomarketing, and be able to map out their own roadmap to successful advertising campaigns.

“The share of the overall mobile ad revenue pie attributed to location-based campaigns will grow from 40 percent ($2.9 billion) in 2013 to 52 percent ($15.7 billion) in 2018.”
