Infographic: The State of Geofencing Marketing

December 16, 2020 by Reveal Mobile

What is geofencing marketing?

Geotargeting and location-based marketing carry broad definitions. Geofencing marketing is a more granular and more customizable strategy that lets marketers capture exactly the audience they want to understand, reach and measure. It allows marketers the ability to target at the brand or store level and is accurate down to the meter.  It equips marketers to advertise to high-intent, in-market audiences and then measure online-to-offline results through foot traffic attribution.

Marketers’ perceptions and usage

It’s a great time to be a digital marketer, and it’s also one of the hardest times to be a digital marketer. The pressure is on to deliver revenue so there’s always pressure to choose the best methods for driving sales.

Mobile Marketer tells us that nearly 90 percent of marketers use location data in campaigns. Merkle says that more than 60 percent of marketers use location data to create more personalized experiences for consumers. And eMarketer research shows that there is a 40 percent increase in investment in location-based advertising year over year. This makes geofencing one of the fastest-growing marketing strategies for agencies, brands, retailers and media companies.  Location data and geofencing marketing advertising have definitely come into their own.

Consumer perceptions

81% of Americans now have smartphones and 71% of them are willing to share their location. This comes with a few caveats.
