Location Targeting Defined Geo-Fence: The process of defining a specific physical location (e.g. store) and determining a fixed radius (i.e “fence”) around the location for targeting purposes. A consumer inside this area would be served an advertisement, while a consumer outside this area would not. Geo-Aware: The process of determining a consumer’s location relative to a physical point or points of interest (e.g. store location), allowing the advertiser to recommend certain actions based on the consumer’s relative position.
Location-Based TargetingWithin a single campaign, executions may vary based on the qualityof the location data ACCURACY: BLOCK LEVEL ACCURACY: METRO LEVEL EXECUTION: GEO-FENCE EXECUTION: GEO-AWAREIf Verve Location Service (VLS) receives block-level data (lat/long &WiFi), we can provide dynamicmessaging within geo-fenced campaigns that can display more precise location messaging.If VLS only receives metro-level data (carrier IP), the dynamic messaging will display all locations, to covera broader area via a geo-aware campaign.

Best Practices: Location Targeting 1. Not all location data is created equal 1. Set an appropriate radius based on store density 1. Know when to use Geo-Aware vs Geo-Fencing 1. Leverage Geo-Aware to augment and refine Geo-Fencing 1. Limit use of additional targeting variables when applying location targeting, run multilevel plan instead 1. Audience clusters are only as good as your location data
