How can mobile analytics help define my trade area and customer profile? keyboard_arrow_down

Dealers, rental agencies, car detailers and auto repair shops can use mobile analytics to develop trade areas and consumer profiles by understanding who visits their location versus their competitors’ location. This helps provide a better understanding of what your trade area looks like, where your visitors likely live and work and who your real competition is. See Mobile Analytics

How can mobile analytics inform sponsorship opportunities? keyboard_arrow_down

Mobile analytics can enhance what you know about who attends sports events, concerts, festivals, gallery openings etc. It can be instrumental in determining if the events you sponsor attract visitors that match your target.

Mobile data is an anonymized, permission-based data service, which uses data collected from location-enabled devices that were observed within a geofenced area defined by latitude and longitude. Our mobility data is collected only if consent is provided by the individual. See mobile analytics

How can data analytics help improve marketing campaign outcomes? keyboard_arrow_down

Using segmentation and behavioural databases, you can understand the needs and behaviours of different PRIZM segments. You can then boost sales by defining the right segments to target and creating the right incentive for a specific car model in a specific geography sent through the optimal channels. For example, you could create a special service bundle beyond normal warranties or win-back campaigns for lapsed customers. 

How can I use data analytics to optimize my existing locations or find new locations? keyboard_arrow_down

By combining your customer data with market data, you can gain deeper insights into who your customers are, where they live and what is important to them during the car purchase decision. These personas can be used to segment your customer base and through market studies and area reporting, you can determine the optimal mix of products and services for a specific location or region. See site location intelligence
