Location Based Mobile Marketing
Using location based Rich Media does not have to be this complex. A more conservative form of location-type rich media would include the “Google Places,” “Foursquare,” and other location-type platforms that can be embedded into your retail website and appear when customers search for your store or product. The service of “Google Places” is free of charge and allows you as a retail owner to upload information about your locations. This can include images, videos and maps as well as a profile of your organisation, your product’s, directions to your location and more.
According to a new research report from the analyst firm Berg Insight, the total value of the global real-time mobile location-based advertising and marketing (LBA) market will grow from AUS $654 million in 2012 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 65% to AUS $9 billion in 2017. This will then correspond to 32.8% of all mobile advertising and marketing. This means that location-based advertising and marketing will represent around five percent of digital advertising, or more than one percent of the total global ad spend for all media.
