Brands can improve the recognition and loyalty received from their consumers with location based marketing according to Reality Digital, the leading provider of social networking software for brands and businesses.
Augmented reality and location technology have been two of the most popular topics of discussion at this years South by Southwest event. Many experts have predicted that soon every major website will have integrated a location based feature that can be used within a forum or online community, and can increase data capture for easier target marketing. Emails or texts could be sent to mobile devices to let consumers know about offers and sales depending on their immediate location, which may boost impulse buying and generate an increase in traffic to a specific destination.
As such, brands can create a loyalty program that will synch to their website. Applications such as Foursquare or Gowalla are enabling customers to share their recent purchases with communities, and Major brands such as Starbucks have used this platform to test a customer rewards program.
