How Outback Steakhouse used geo-targeting
technology to serve up effective ads

For Outback Steakhouse, the campaign goal was bigger than urging people to order the newest item on its menu. The casual dining restaurant set its sights on increasing restaurant visits and becoming a more viable competitor to other steakhouses in close proximity.

Our location solutions.

Location Targeting was used to reach audiences around a 10-mile radius of Outback Steakhouse locations. Since hunger is time-sensitive, targeting by physical location allowed Outback Steakhouse to tap into behavioral marketing, and cravings.

Audience Targeting allowed Outback Steakhouse to hone in on customers within a 5-mile radius of its competitors, including steakhouses and other large national restaurant chains.
