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.

Geolocation data increases its importance in targeted mobile marketing

Geolocation Data Mobile MarketingReal time information about consumer location are playing a larger part in advertising over smartphones.

As smartphones and tablets continue to make their way into a growing number of consumer hands, mobile marketers have been keen to use geolocation data in order to help to better target device owners while they’re on the go.

Mobile marketing is rapidly evolving and incorporating new technologies and techniques.

Although advertising in the mobile sphere is still relatively new, it is growing and changing very quickly. Along with this increase, many marketers are looking into using more sophisticated data in order to improve the effectiveness of their strategies. In this, many campaigns are now including geolocation data to help to ensure that consumers are being provided with relevant offers at the most appropriate times.

This is making geolocation increasingly important to timing and targeting in the mobile marketing environment.

A recent report issued by Econsultancy has revealed that more than a quarter (27 percent) of companies around the world intend to implement some form of marketing strategy that uses geolocation, this year. Another 34 percent intend to make an investment into a mobile advertising strategy.

More data, which was released by a geolocation mobile ad platform, Verve Mobile, looked into more than 2,500 American mobile ad campaigns that were implemented across that platform. What it determined was that the percentage of mobile marketing campaigns that implemented some level of geolocation technology, such as geoware targeting and geofencing, had increased twice over. This brought the 2011 level of 17 percent up to 36 percent last year.

This type of geolocation mobile marketing campaign applies data from a consumer’s real time location in order to be able to provide that individual with specific, relevant, and frequently dynamic ads based on his or her proximity to a certain location such as a retail store. It can also be activated when a user enters a space or checks into a location. It can then monitor that user’s response to the message and enhance future communications for improved relevancy to that individual’s preferences, behaviors, and habits for improved appropriateness and usefulness of advertising.
