Why Geofencing Is Worth It

Are you in search of the next web trend or an innovative technique to reach out to new customers?

Do you want your ads to appear when a potential customer is shopping at one of your competitors, in a store selling related goods, or during a business conference? The Conversio Marketing team has what you need.

In an era where optimization is the key to success in many aspects of your life, it is necessary to constantly question the status quo in order to progress towards better efficiency. The next logical step in your web strategy may lie within a new technology called geofencing.

What is geofencing?

Think of a fenced-off area. It is now possible for you to target your target audience only within the geographical area they visited thanks to polygonal tracing. Whether it’s a shopping mall, a sports field, a car dealership, the possibilities are endless! It is possible to achieve this kind of technological feat thanks to GPS data shared by users’ mobile devices who consent to share their location. Think about the popular places your target frequents in their daily routine. Why not allocate a budget to reach a large density of potential customers there? In fact, location-based ads are 20 times more effective compared to traditional banners. .


Top 5 reasons why you should integrate geofencing into your web strategy:

A highly profitable hyperlocal strategy

By targeting only those who have visited certain facilities at a given time, it is possible to achieve a very interesting return on investment. Imagine the possibilities for your business! Your target audience is constantly on the move. Instead of trying to target an area encompassing their homes, which can span a vast territory, think about their daily lives. Do they have a frequently visited place in common? This is where you will realize the real value of a tool like geofencing. For a budget equivalent to that of traditional techniques, more people of interest will be able to encounter your value proposition, reducing exposure to off-target individuals.

A more comprehensive analysis of your potential customers

Not only is this targeting method more cost-effective, but it can also provide us with privileged data about our audience and their consumption habits. By targeting multiple distinct locations, we can conduct our analysis in a more segmented manner. In fact, it is possible to pinpoint several distinct areas and compare their performance. This way, we can quickly see which geographic area, which creative, and which offer work best in order to optimize our campaigns and learn more about our clientele. It is by knowing your target audience better that you will be able to adjust your offer based on the determining factors that will be observable. If you already know the demographics and interests of your typical customer, you can now use geofencing to observe what type of stores your best customers visit. This additional information will allow you to validate the consumption habits of these customers and adjust your offer accordingly. Where, at what time of day, and after visiting which store did the prospect convert? These are all pieces of information that are more difficult, if not impossible, to gather in such granular detail.
