How Geofencing Advertising Works For Universities
- A virtual geofence is traced around an event location where the advertiser wants to build an audience based on their visit to that particular location during a set, scheduled timeframe.
- When people enter the geo-fenced location during the set timeframe, they will then become a part of an audience that can later be targeted following the event.
- As the user visits various apps downloaded on their phone (Angry Bird, Weather Channel, Emoji Keyword, Words With Friends) or browses the internet on the mobile browsers, they begin to see ads from said advertiser.
- User can see those Ads for 1 day and up to 30 days after he/she has entered the geo fence.
Geo fencing marketing is the perfect solution for people that want to target a group of people attending a specific event and get more reach out of their ad spend rather than simply zip code targeting or city-wide targeting beit New York, Chicago, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Miami FL, or even Atlanta, GA.
Digital Solutions That Truly Attracts Students To Your Institution
We provide ourselves on developing campaigns that truly translate into phone calls, leads, and potential student most likely to attend your academic institution. The digital channels that we focus on do matter….but the best part is we can track both online and offline traffic to your institution and your website, thus better understanding your true ROI.
Paying For Phone Calls (Not Just Clicks)
Our standard Adwords and Bing campaigns for the academic institutions still perform well for clients. And we highly recommend any and all institutions leverage a proper Adwords campaign. But we also can develop call-only campaigns (and text only campaigns) so you only pay for phone calls from actual searchers expressing an academic or interest in your institution.
Increase Student Enrollment By Targeting Other Locations
Propellant Media’s latest technology in Geo-Fencing Technology targets prospective students who attended specified schools or events with the most precise temporal geo-targeting solution available. By building a custom polygon around the event center, we can begin serving Ads to the mobile devices of those users from the time they enter our geo fence for up to 30 days.
Ideal Locations Including:
