GroundTruth Q&A with Truelio: How Location-Based Marketing Plays an Important Role in Generating Real Business Results
Location-based marketing is a significant part of any digital marketing strategy or campaign. It works incredibly well for retail campaigns and drives in-store visits in restaurants, car dealerships, and consumer brand locations across the globe.
But how does location-based marketing work in the real-world? What are the benefits of location-based marketing and are there any potential considerations for modern marketers to make?
Location-Based Marketing Q&A With Truelio
GroundTruth got together with Truelio, a brand experience digital marketing and technology transformation agency, to chat about location-based marketing, real-world behaviors, and the tools needed to drive brand awareness and real business results.
Effectiveness of Location-Based Marketing
GroundTruth: So we’re talking about location marketing. Why is it so important to marketers?
Truelio: Location-based marketing can be a significant part of any digital marketing strategy. It works incredibly well for retail campaigns and helps drive in-store visits to restaurants, car dealerships, and consumer brand locations.
GroundTruth: How can brands use location data-driven insights for their marketing campaigns?
Truelio: Let’s say that I am a male in his early 40s who works in the marketing and advertising industry. I like craft beer, the outdoors, great food, and Americana music. Also, I geek out on cooking videos on YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok. So if there is an opportunity for a craft beer brand to market to me with the IPA du-jour, they have found their match.
GroundTruth: How important is it for brands to understand if their strategy worked?
Truelio: It’s critical. Especially when marketers are focused on performance marketing that generates actual revenue. If I enter the location that sells their version of the craft beer du-jour, then a store visit occurs within the conversion zone set up within the campaign.
That’s right—analytics shows a probable conversion at the point of sale when there is no connection between campaign attribution and the point-of-sale system within the retail location.
GroundTruth: So, location data is really a brand’s best friend in this case.
Truelio: Yes, a performance-based marketing focus can certainly play a key role in generating real business results.
GroundTruth: We’re proud to be a part of helping brands improve their location-based marketing strategy. For example, you can use our inclement weather bid strategy to advertise weather-dependent businesses at the right time.

In addition, we use a combination of first-party data and mobile device location to target prospective consumers based on where they are; it also considers the specific market segments to which those consumers belong.
