Location-Based Proximity Marketing

In today’s fragmented media market, it is getting tougher to reach and engage with consumers. Experts predict that in 2013 — worldwide mobile Internet usage will surpass desktop usage. Consumers create their own landscape and they are gravitating towards mobile devices to complement their “on the go” lifestyles.

It’s no surprise that the more relevant and targeted your message is, the more effective and successful your campaign. Location-based proximity marketing, like the Proximus Mobility solution, places brands where and when it matters most, right in the consumer’s hand at the point of purchase.
