Free Trend Report: Why Location Is the New Currency of Marketing
Traditional methods of advertising have become less effective as consumers spend less time in places where marketers have traditionally had an advantage in reaching them. Consumer attention has fragmented across multiple channels as media options and device platforms increasingly diversify. Finding effective ways to deliver branded messages in today’s complex media environment is one of the biggest challenges facing advertisers.
Active consumers spend money, and while they are going about their daily routine, they are also actively looking for information. According to Google, more than 50% of all mobile searches have local intent, and 17% of search happens while consumers are on the go.
There has never been a better time for marketers to reach on-the-go consumers. This special report provides detailed information on Digital Place Based (DPB) media and Location-based Mobile (LbM) marketing. Digital Place Based media, also known as Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) advertising utilizes strategically placed, networked digital signage displays to reach on-the-go consumers while they are outside their home with highly targeted messages. Digital Place Based networks typically broadcast targeted content along with advertising in venues that have high dwell time. Location-based mobile and digital place-based media are part of a larger multi-screen campaign planning ecosystem that includes desktop and television.
Why Location Is the New Currency of Marketing is aimed at CMOs, media buyers and strategists and provides insight into why marketers are increasingly shifting their advertising dollars to these rapidly emerging media platforms.
Highlights from Why Location Is the New Currency of Marketing include:
- The Connected Consumer
- Leveraging the Moment
- Multiscreen Campaign Planning
- Amplifying Reach With DPb Media
