Geohistorical Ad Targeting

Utilizing prior-location data to serve relevant ad messaging

Geofencing and location-based targeting is a great way to reach audiences in real time and maximize ad message relevancy. But what about all the people who had been to a targeted location in the past? Manicz Media’s Geohistorical Targeting solution can serve ad messaging to users who had visited physical locations, addresses and even specific map coordinates within the past 12 months.

Reaching target audiences based on historical location data allows for accurate and relevant ad messaging along with known audience reach not often see with real time geofencing as targeting solutions.

How it works

Manicz Media has leveraged location data derived from mobile IDs to develop accurate mapping of most popular locations including businesses, conference centers, vacation destinations, stadiums, restaurants, car dealers and more. With these locations tagged they begin feeding on-going device location data and other non-personal identifiable information to the Manicz Media audience targeting platform. With this on-going data feed available, advertisers can serve ad messaging based on previous historical data.

Manicz Media can pull estimated reach numbers by location to determine foot traffic and visitation. This allows for accurate campaign setups and better managed expectations for paid media performance.

On-Demand Audience Data Targeting Layer

In addition to location based data, audience targeting can be implemented as well utilizing the Manicz Media On-Demand targeting solution. Layer in an audience targeting element that includes online search history, custom intent and contextual content consumed. Including audience data along with historical location data maximizes relevancy and limits wasted ad spend.
