Location-Based Marketing use cases

The latest data report from McKinsey shows that consumers are likely to maintain the same behaviours such as online shopping and fewer store visits that they’ve adopted amid the stay-at-home period during COVID. Even though retailers and small businesses have been through challenging times, the apparent need for physical stores is still very prominent. There are certain in-store experiences where online shopping can never reach the same level. It’s high time that businesses adopt new technologies to keep up with the new changes in consumer behaviours. And one of the game changers is location-based marketing.


What is Location-based marketing?

Location-based marketing, simply put, is the technology of using location data that is shared from GPS, online transactions at shopping malls, grocery stores, or photos. Using this data, marketers will be able to reach their desired audiences with more relevant advertising and content.

Location-based marketing works great for any and all retailers, brick and mortars, restaurants, and small local businesses. It is the best fit with these industries because of customers’ physical footprint, which synchronises with location data. Based on their actual previous customers, marketers can create an exact set of lookalike audiences for their strategy, thus retargeting and driving those customers to return and increase loyalty.

How Location-based marketing improves customers experiences

Case in point: OPPO

In a saturated market like mobile, in order to stand out among hundreds of competitors, businesses need not only pay attention to price policy, impressive advertising or phone functions, but also pay attention to building customer experience.

In the campaign to launch their new phone OPPO F11 & F11 Pro, YOOSE chose a radius of 500m around 2,015 OPPO stores in Ho Chi Minh City with Dynamic Ads leading customers to stores in the target area.

Key takeaway: Not only does an outstanding key visual matter, but it is also important to add dynamic elements on the ad banners to help potential customers easily navigate and move to the nearest product showroom.
