Geofencing Advertising
What is Geofencing?

Geofencing is the use of GPS or RFID technology to create a virtual geographic boundary, allowing software to trigger a response when a mobile device enters or leaves a particular area. Geofencing marketing is using a customer’s GPS location to show them advertisements based on their specific target location. Geofencing marketing allows for highly precise digital marketing and ensures that the target is more likely to be a potential customer by virtue of their location.

How does Geofencing and Programmatic Advertising go hand in hand?

A holistic programmatic advertising campaign and a geofencing campaign is the way to go.
