One way Dunkin’ Brands accomplishes this by crafting campaigns that consider a consumer’s intent. Is it a customer’s first coffee of the day? Is he handling a mid-afternoon coffee run for his office? Is she about to stroll by a local Dunkin’ Donuts store? Or is she on a commuter train heading home for the evening? The right location data can answer these questions, enabling marketers like Dunkin’ Brands to know when and how to reach their best customers.
Search engine optimization helps marketers deliver the right answers to inquisitive consumers in a timely fashion. Social media channels, on the other hand, let brands connect and engage consumers in real time. But while these twin marketing tools are excellent for reaching consumers at home, they have their fair share of limitations. For example, a 22-year-old male’s search and social activities may indicate that he’s in the market to buy his first car. But beyond initial interest, there is little to learn about the consumer’s actual behavior or intent. Fortunately, location fills these gaps for marketers. Unlike search and social data, location taps into what’s actually happening “now” in the real world without requiring a keyword or explicit interest. After all, where consumers are located says a lot more about their needs and intent than the websites they visit or the apps they use.
