    With the festive season in India ready to knock at our doorsteps, brands are upbeat about consumers returning to stores amid an easing pandemic and a positive purchase intent. To make the most of the festive season opportunity to find and reach new audiences, brands are investing in Connected TV (CTV) advertising that promises an engaging medium that combines the power of storytelling with the benefits of programmatic advertising. 

    But to go a step further and connect the consumers' journeys from online to offline, location-based advertising can open up a myriad of opportunities for advertisers. With mediasmart’s location-based advertising, you can interactively search, select locations, and automatically build audiences on top of them anywhere in India. The solution goes a step further by allowing to target a pool of users that buy at your competitor’s store or work in a particular area in the city.

    How mediasmart’s LBA works

    The system will start gathering device IDs as soon as the audience is set up, and you will be able to segment only those users on your advertising strategy. You will also be able to build segments specifically during particular hours of the day: opening and closing hours if they are built around stores; nighttime if it is around living areas; daytime if it’s around industry areas; or a particular set of days if you want to build audiences around particular events.

    Advertisers can benefit from gathering audiences around particular physical areas, using GPS coordinates while fully in control of the area, precision, and schedule.
