  • Thats a great sum up of the beacon ecosystem Sean. Thanks for sharing. And I totally agree with what you said. When it comes to customizing notifications, most brands today account for their consumers’ current location alone. This has resulted in many a disappointing beacon trials with few even nudging their consumers to stop using the app or uninstalling it. One of the main reasons behind this is that there is very actionable limited information available on how to run successful beacon campaigns. For example, the best way for brands to deal with this challenge is to make their notifications more contextually relevant. We’ve discussed a few proximity marketing campaign success secrets that will help brands ace their next campaign in this ebook here: http://blog.mobstac.com/2015/01/ebook-the-a-to-z-of-proximity-marketing-with-beacons/

  1. 1. Beacosystem Overview twitter: @sos100 Sean O Sullivan blog: blog.mylocalsocial.com Q1 ‘15
  2. 2. Anywhere from 60M to 300M Beacons deployed worldwide by 2018. Currently, 1-2M, excluding Apple iOS devices. We are here
  3. 3. Pure Play Hardware Companies with standalone Beacons Marketing Automation Companies using Beacons for indoor, place-based signals Place / Location Analytics companies using Beacons for indoor & place-based signals Vertical Solution Provider using Beacons for features (Events, Museums, Enterprise, Real Estate) Shopper Marketing Platforms using Beacons to trigger engagement, understand context General Purpose Proximity Platforms offering PaaS to everyone else Indoor Location Providers using Beacons as part of the Indoor Location arsenal Hardware Companies with embedded Beacons (Lights, Sockets, Wearables) Lots of different players in the Beacosystem Ad Networks / DSPs linking to Beacon networks for re-targeting, offline to online (O2O)
  4. 4. And of course, two companies that matter more than most in this ecosystem :-)
  5. 5. Apple (iBeacon) Google (Physical Web)
  6. 6. Not only about these… Bluetooth Low Energy Device Battery powered, mains powered, solar powered, passive powered Transmits a message in an agreed way All iOS and all new Android devices can “see” this message (Standalone Beacons) Range: 10M / 30 feet on average
  7. 7. Embedded use of Beacons will likely drive the real long term volume in deployments But very much also about these… Lights Sockets Wearables Locks
  8. 8. Embedded Volume beacon shipments match standalone volume by end 2015 Successful deployments outside retail: events, gigs, conferences, real estate, tourism Enterprise use cases start to emerge: meeting rooms, staff location, building security Privacy policy becomes a key differentiator for suppliers Do not track (DNT) equivalent policies become formalised for Beacon use cases More M&A in the Beacosystem More options emerge for App-free experiences (Retailers crying out for browser solution) Many poor consumer experiences launched - mostly in retail context (pestering, spam) Some expectations for 2015
  9. 9. Right now : Investment, Structuring, Consolidation / Acquisition
