Imagine if you could digitally track your customers’ offline behaviors in addition to their online ones. It might sound too good to be true, but modern mobile technology makes it possible. With geofencing, marketers can target and track customers’ visits to or through specific locations: just like it sounds, the technology lets you set a virtual fence around an area to collect data from. Geofencing marketing allows businesses to track areas of many different sizes: specific addresses, postal code, city, state, business category/chain or even media market.
What are marketing automation services, and what do they do? Simply put, marketing automation services automate several actions across various types of campaigns. It’s increasingly difficult for marketers to keep track of and respond to their growing list of leads. Marketing automation makes it easier for them to respond to leads’ actions automatically—whether it be an email trigger, web trigger, social response or more. This makes marketing automation services ideal for inbound marketing and nurturing leads.
Consider the last time you went clothes shopping. You might have already had an idea of what you were looking for, or perhaps you had a specific event or occasion in mind for finding an outfit.
