  32. 32. What: Location-aware applications/Web sites that use GPS location to deliver content and experiences across mobile devices<br />Who: Foursquare, Whrrl, Gowalla, Yelp!, Facebook Places<br />Why: Brands can leverage location to deliver content, deals, and advertising. They can also track behaviors and build brand loyalty through incentivizing activity.<br />How: Claim your brand (and location) through the appropriate sites. Once you’ve started, you can offer deals and interact with brand loyalists. <br />Next: Integration of LBS APIs with digital signage is taking hold. Location-aware coupons and deals will continue to grow.<br />Toolbox: Location-based Services (LBS)<br />
  33. 33. What: SMS-based campaigns where users opt-in to receiving messaging from brands<br />Who: Tatango, TextOmni, EZTexting, TextSMS, BoomText<br />Why: As users opt in to text messaging, brands can deliver content through SMS messages to their mobile devices. These services can pair with GPS-based programs as well.<br />How: Using existing marketing materials, distribute your short code to your patrons. From there, it’s all about content and showing value through your marketing.<br />Next: As the mobile Web continues to expand, the text marketing channel will continue to deliver content when applications and LBS might not be a fit<br />Toolbox: Text Campaigns<br />
  34. 34. What: 2D codes (barcode or other) which act as a digital signature for content<br />Who: Microsoft TAG, QR Codes, <br />Why: 2D codes bring together the physical and the virtual through software on mobile devices<br />How: Users either download an app or use existing software to capture the image. Then, they are usually directed to a mobile site or piece of content specifically assigned to that code<br />Next: 2D codes will continue to be used as a content delivery system, but are already being used for ticketing and retail. Look for more advancements in retail use of 2D codes and augmented reality in order to “try before you buy” soon.<br />Toolbox: 2D Codes<br />
