Geolocation based mobile marketing tech unveiled by Mood Media

Geolocation Mobile MarketingThis newly launched tech provides a capability for recognizing when customers have entered a store.

Mobile marketing technology provider, Mood Media, has just announced the launch of its Mood Presence technology that applies the size of its considerable music network and geolocation in order to be able to connect marketers and retailers directly to consumers who are using smartphones, tablets, and other similar smart devices.

The Mood Presence technology is a form of intelligent networks that allows for more personalized marketing.

The way that the geolocation based technology works is that it sends an inaudible cue through the music player of the Mood Media app, as well as through the existing sound system in the physical store location. When the mobile app registers this signal, its presence in an iOS or Android device is immediately detected through geolocation technology.

The geolocation detection allows the system to automatically connect with that device for targeted marketing.

This way, a retailer can seamlessly and conveniently send relevant and targeted marketing to consumers the moment they enter their store locations, because the geolocation technology lets them know exactly when that is. This means that the ads, promotions, offers, coupons, and other forms of marketing will be presented to the user at the time that he or she is most likely to be interested.

At the same time, Mood also announced the launch of a second geolocation technology, called Explore In-Store. This is the first product from Presence that uses its technology to integrate with the app of the retailer. The goal is to improve the interactivity of the mobile marketing solutions.

This geolocation technology identifies when a consumer has entered a store location and develops a form of VIP connection with that individual. It enhances the overall shopping experience by providing targeted content that is specific to the store location that has been entered, as well as the offers and product information that is most relevant to the unique user, including in-store offers and information about the products on the store’s shelves.

The goal is to use geolocation technology to allow retailers to combat the struggle with showrooming and use it to their advantage, instead.

Mobile marketing acquisition confirmed by Spindle

Mobile Payments AcquisitionThey have verified the purchase that they have made of the MeNetwork firm.

Spindle Inc., the provider of mobile payments solution. has just announced that it is officially acquiring the mobile marketing firm called MeNetwork Inc.

The Scottsdale, Arizona based company will be integrating the services provided by the two businesses.

MeNetwork is a new location based mobile marketing solution provider that has been drawing a great deal of attention to itself. Spindle’s announcement of the acquisition explained that MeNetwork’s smartphone friendly advertising technology will be integrated into its own payments platform.

As of yet, there have been no financial terms revealed regarding the purchase of the mobile marketing company.

This most recent purchase has only proved to underline the growing trend throughout the industry that is having mobile marketing and payments companies coming together within the channel.

MeNetwork already boasts client relationships throughout Europe and the United States and is probably going to provide Spindle’s smartphone payment and loyalty solutions offerings a considerable expansion beyond its own steady growth. At the moment, Spindle’s primary focus is on retail and banking organizations.

The president of Spindle, Bill Clark, explained that “We are delighted to finalize the deal with MeNetwork, which now gives Spindle a comprehensive mobile commerce solution that incorporates mobile marketing and mobile payments.”

Clark’s company has taken part in a number of partnerships and acquisitions, recently, including this one with MeNetwork. In February of this year, there was another massive partnership that occurred between Spindle and PayLeap, another payment company that is Acculynk’s payment processing solution. In this case, it was a strategic partnership and not a purchase, and it was not with a mobile marketing company, but this does reflect the rapid growth and state of flux in which Spindle currently finds itself.

The hope for Spindle is that it will be able to allow its merchant clients to leverage the powerful new connections provided by its mobile marketing technology integration in order to build customer loyalty, drive commerce, as well as giving consumers the ability to experience and share unique content through their favorite social media network.
