The 5 steps to creating an effective proximity campaign

The 5 steps to creating an effective proximity campaign

If you'd like to know more about mobile proximity marketing, then you're in the right place. We’ve put together 5 key steps for mobile marketing success.

 

Step 1 – What are you trying to promote?

This is where you'll develop a better understanding of your product. If you’ve previously run campaigns with Tamoco you’ll already have a much better understanding of which products provide the most engagement through mobile. But don't worry if not. Our team is here to help. We can run listening campaigns to help find where your ideal customer is and where is best to target them.

 

Step 2 – What’s your offer or call to action?

Again, previous campaign data will provide concrete results on this. The point to make here is that it’s not necessarily all about giving something away for nothing. With proximity mobile marketing the consumer sees your advert when it’s relevant. Some of our most successful campaigns have simply notified audiences of relevant venues and products. If it’s relevant to the user, then there’s a high chance they’ll be interested, regardless of huge discounts.

 

Step 3 – Where should a user receive your notification?

There are a few options here. It depends mainly on the product you are trying to push. It also depends a lot on your competitors.  You can run footfall campaigns that are triggered in locations that are close by to your venue. Audiences will probably have shopping on the mind when in an area close to your store. Therefore, they are much more likely to respond to your content. As a rule of thumb, customers are much more likely to visit if they are nearby, rather than at home in their PJs.

Another option is location triggering around a competitor. Reaching users as they are about to enter a similar store always works well as a proximity campaign. These audiences are already in the right frame of mind to buy your product. A tailored notification could be just the trick to inspire a visit to your store or to generate interest in your product.

 

Step 4 – When should your content be delivered?

Timing is important in creating highly personalised content and it provides value for the consumer. Why send a notification for ice-cream when there’s a storm? Why encourage visits to your bar at 9 am? Other methods of marketing don’t differentiate and this can just waste marketing spend. Proximity notifications can be triggered based on a multitude of factors, from the weather to the time of day, allowing for you to increase personalisation and optimise spend.

 

Step 5 – Attribution

No that’s not it. We like to help brands measure and understand their marketing efforts. We can accurately measure the effectiveness of proximity campaigns using the tech on our network. In-venue sensors will measure store activity. This allows for great measurement of ROI and helps for businesses of all kinds to gain a better understanding of customer behaviour.

It also means you can retarget those who are interested in your brand or product. Campaign data is valuable for retargeting purposes, and you can improve marketing efficiency throughout various channels.

Of course, the very nature of personalised advertising can be much more complicated than this. That’s why we recommend that you get in touch with our team. We’d be more than happy to suggest the best campaign for your budget and assist you with any further questions that you may have.
