Where You Are Determines the Ads That You Will See

Location 2.0™ and Location State™ technology

AdAbout’s Location 2.0™ technology focuses on the physical location and the surroundings of a mobile user to deliver ads pertinent to their current situation.

Gift giving can be a daunting process. Whether you are shopping during the holidays or your best friend’s birthday, there is no way to guarantee that the gift you select will be a winner. Because gifts are typically given as surprises, you have to figure out what the person wants or needs without asking them. To do this you use your knowledge of their interests and habits to choose an appropriate gift and the same is true for mobile ads.

Relevancy is King in Mobile Advertising (and Gift Giving)

Basically, mobile advertisers have to figure out how to influence mobile users to click their ad and, hopefully, purchase their product. But, how do you know what a specific person wants or needs? Advertisers, like gift givers, use the information they have about their intended audience, including location, to determine relevant ads.
Consider facts from a recent study regarding mobile advertising. According to eMarketer.com, 70% of American adults were exposed to mobile ads in 2014, yet only 35% of them actually clicked a mobile ad. Furthermore, the top two reasons people reported not clicking ads were a lack of interest in and a lack of relevancy to the advertisements they saw.
This data clearly shows that relevancy, which can be defined as current interest + current location + right time, is the most important aspect of mobile and online advertising. The question becomes, how can mobile advertisers increase the relevancy of their ads?

Location, Location, Location

Recently, the benefits of location-specific advertising in the mobile ad market have been realized. AdAbouts is at the forefront of the movement to use real-time location services to increase ad relevancy. This new movement is predicated on the fact that most people carry a mobile device with them everywhere they go. For mobile advertisers, this means that information about a person’s location and surroundings is almost always available.
A simple, effective way to think about the importance of physical location to advertising is to consider the connection between location, opportunity, and desire. Someone browsing the web in rural Texas, for example, will have different desires and opportunities than a mobile phone user on 5th Avenue in Manhattan because of their location. That is, in essence, how location data increases relevancy; by providing information about the interests of a mobile user instantaneously. For mobile advertisers, location becomes even more important because of the lack of information that can be garnered from Cookies inaccessible to the mobile device.

Remarkably Relevant

AdAbouts technology combines location with interests and behavioral patterns to enhance your audience profiles and ensure your campaigns are on target.

No Cookies, No Problem

Online advertisers have an advantage over mobile advertisers in that they can take information about a person’s browsing history and use that to decide which ads to display. This data, called a cookie, is stored by web browsers on computers but cookies are not present on mobile operating systems. In fact, this is a major hurdle for mobile advertisers because they cannot easily target their customer’s interests based on cookies in the same way that online advertisers can. AdAbouts seeks to address this challenge with a two-pronged approach to mitigate the no-cookie conundrum.

The AdAbouts’ Advertising Attack

AdAbouts seeks to change the way mobile advertising is conducted by overhauling the inefficiencies of past mobile ad practices while incorporating new technology. The AdAbouts platform is efficient because it is a single software development kit that connects multiple ad networks, exchanges and DSP’s to reduce complications and increase communications. But, not only is AdAbouts more efficient, it is also generates more revenue for developers and advertisers by selecting more relevant ads. How you ask?
Firstly, AdAbouts delivers more accurate location data through Location 2.0™ and Location State™ technology. The important idea here is that Location 2.0™ technology focuses on the physical location and the surroundings of a mobile user to deliver ads pertinent to their current situation. Contrastingly, many less effective location-based services simply use geographic coordinates to select ads, which is much less specific.
Secondly, AdAbouts uses enhanced real-time bidding (eRTB) with Value Score to track ad relevancy over time for better conversion. AdAbouts evaluates advertisers and their specific ads relevancy and conversion rates and calculates a Value Score which is taken into account with their every bid. The higher the Value Score for a specific individual, the more likely the bid will be accepted. Other real-time bidding exchanges simply return the highest bid.
