Leap in Location targeting

January 13, 2017 5:58 am By

Text messaging has permanently changed the way people communicate. And it’s here to stay because people are more tied to their phones than ever before. A recent survey of automotive mobile shoppers tells us that they are far along into the purchase process with some shoppers looking for ratings and dealership reviews while almost 50% are looking for pricing information. Shoppers are also looking for information about dealer inventory and photos and colors of the car. A whopping 70% have already decided on trim and options, indicating they are looking for specifically equipped vehicles to purchase. Savvy dealers have jumped on the bandwagon by texting with customers to set up appointments, answer questions, and close the deal.

Now take the power of texting, tie it with location, and layer it on top of past behavior for more relevant messaging – voila! You have taken a huge leap ahead to engage your customers in a powerful and intimate manner. Let’s take an example scenario —   hoojook  can/will find customers who were previously at a ski resort, let’s say, in Denver. Then hoojook will send a mobile ad to these customers with a link to your service center’s ‘snow chain and winter service’ coupon or micro site which is mobile-optimized. This type of campaign underscores a bigger trend that takes location-marketing up many notches. Instead of just focusing on the location of a customer, you are now able to layer location on top of past behavior for more targeted marketing.
