Message customisation using geolocation

Push advertising is an excellent channel of communication with recipients. The tool performs both an informational function (e.g. notifications inform about a cultural or other event) and an advertising function – e.g. they encourage to benefit from sale or download a coupon.

Moreover, they are increasingly used for advertising activities based on users’ location. When knowing it, one can send customised messages, thereby narrowing the target group to customers who are more interested in an offer. Collecting the right data and a good idea to use it are a key to success. In this case, the goal is a quick response to recipient’s needs. 

Examples of using geolocation

Push notifications, or push advertising, are an effective advertising tool, provided that we schedule the best campaign dispatch time. In the case of geolocation, a message should be sent when a user approaches the store, showroom or other premises.

Messages will appear every time the package status changes, without a need to log in.
