What is geolocation marketing?
Geolocation marketing refers to the set of actions to promote a product or service that are segmented based on the user’s exact location. To do this, data is taken from any mobile device with an Internet connection that customers use. Nowadays, it has become an exciting strategy for companies since it allows them to segment messages according to specific places, knowing where potential consumers are.
Advantages of geolocation marketing
